Bargain Shopping

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

I took my car for service today which took a little more than 3 hours. At the end of the 1st hour, I went for a walk. I walked across the street to Ollie’s where I found the Special K Dark Chocolate Protein Shakes for $3.99 and the Designer Whey Protein bars (12 bars in the box) for $6.99. I love a good bargain!

After lunch I went to the gym and walked on the treadmill. I’m having a problem with the treadmill and I’m not sure how to describe it. If I’m walking on in the neighborhood or at the college’s fitness trail or even the Battlefield, I can walk 3 or 4 miles no problem. But the minute I step on the treadmill I get bored and I can’t stand more than ½ hour of it. I’m listening to music and watching what ever is on the TV, but it’s hard to get past the boredom. I truly missed my Step class this am.

Unfortunately, I gained 1 ½ pounds this week. I know I need to get back to writing down my food intake. I didn’t get all my shakes or my vegetables/fruits in last week. Normally I walk in addition to attending the group classes but I didn’t walk at all last week. All of these are fixable!!

    I hate treadmills! the outdoors is good for your soul and should be experienced as much as possible as far as I'm concerned. You'll be back on track and lose the pound and a half in no time!

    Seems to me that your walks were nurutring your soul/spirit with all the visual stimulation, plus giving you a feeling of actually covering some ground.
    Best to stick with what works and makes you feel good, because that activity is welcome and is easier to repeat and keep in the program.

    I'm having the same problem. I'm bored with my exercise. Need to find something different I suppose.

    You're right. They are all fixable!

    Yup, they are all fixable! OMG treadmills suck but are great back-ups!
