Hi Julie-welcome. What a great decision-2 birds with one stone-saving $ and exercising.
Have you any ideas of diet? That could make or break a budget. I had a lot of problems starting weight watchers core--all meals are made by me-lots of dishes,LOL, and it took me a while to learn how to eat healthy on a budget. What I do now is use an online grocery list and I list out EXACT quantities of what I need:3 bananas(small) 4 small apples, etc.. It IS cheaper to eat fast food but totally bad for the butt, and everything else on my body. And no dishes.LOL I am getting the hang of that too.
Do you have time for sleep? Maybe 3 hrs? LOL. I hope you have the support on SP you need. Karen
Hi everyone! I just found this team. My name is Julie, 21, from Maine. Married 1/12/08 so still a newlywed! :) I graduate college in 1.5 months. I am always looking for a way to save money. Being a full time college student and working 2 jobs, does not usually equal out to quite making ends meet. I made a "big" purchase of an elliptical ($168) to save the cost of going to the gym (membership, fuel, etc.) It's great because now I can lose weight and save money.
