  1. The $200 a month food budget!

    by , 01-07-2009 at 01:58 AM
    I have decided to post everything here for two reasons-
    1) I constantly lose my postings in the forums and
    2) The forums are really taking a long time to load...

    So with my limited amount of time I decided to be efficient and keep "tabs" on my journey here.

    Well after my first week, I still have $6 left in my grocery budget!
    So tomorrow I can add another $50 so I will have $56 and if I can get my $3 back from save-on I will have $59! ...
  2. 01/06/2009 - P.H.A.T. Chick Journal

    Got off to a fantastic start today! Before leaving for work, I walked 20 minutes on the treadmill, drank my eight glasses of water, and worked out with the free weights.

I've been using it ...

    I do need some shampoo and conditioner as I only have sauve and I ...
  4. White Girl Can't Dance

    If anyone reads the Lose-A-Pound-A-Week Challenge thread, then you already know that I split my pants this morning. I'm just happy it happened BEFORE I left for work. That could have been pretty humiliating. Memo to self: wear pretty undies more often, just in case.

    That was the motivation I needed. I PROMISE not to skip anymore workouts, drink more H2O and eat healthier. I do not break my promises.

    To keep my promise, I went to a Latin Dance class tonight. It was ...
