Sunday Updates

In bullet point format:

  • I went over my weekend staycation budget by $5.84. I'm totally okay with that!
  • I've been slowing adding weight lifting to my workout regime, so now it's kickboxing classes 2x a week and weights 2-3x a week.
  • Finished reading The Girl Who Played with Fire and Sarah's Key recently. Both were awesome, in really different ways! :)
  • I got some new prescriptions recently. Picked them up at Target yesterday... thank GOODNESS for insurance + generics! $52.85 out of pocket, but they will last me the rest of the year.
  • I'm obsessed with the Sally Hanser Nail Color Pen my Mom sent me in a recent care package. I'm horrible at giving myself a manicure (my hands are NOT steady!) but this is a lot easier than normal nail polish... not perfect, but good enough! :)
  • Went on a date on Wednesday! I had a great time and it seemed like he did, too. (He kissed me when he walked me to my door.) But now it's Sunday and I haven't heard from him...
  • Purchased some groceries this weekend. Great buys (thanks to awesome sales and coupons) included a Kashi frozen meal for $3, a dozen natural, large eggs for $0.88, a Betty Crocker Warm Delights cake for $0.05, a free package of McCormick's seasoning mix and a free package of Uncle Ben's Roasted Garlic Whole Grain Rice Medley. Yum!
  • My Mom included $40 for me in the recent care package (love her!) so I put $20 in my CL/25th Fund and am using $20 for whatever I feel like... so far, a Starbucks happy hour frappuchino ($1.83) and a burrito for Friday's dinner ($6.43). Oh, and I think $1 for parking?
I've already made a white bean dip today (healthy snack for the week!) and I'm about to cook some burritos for this week's lunches as well as chop up veggies in advance. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! :)

It sounds like you've had a busy week! :)

Lots of good stuff going on -that's great that you're doing so well on your exercise program. The food savings are impressive too.

My book group read "Sarah's Key" - a dramatic book for sure. I'll have to check out the other book sometime.

What are you doing for weight training? I'm about to start doing it myself and would love to hear your ideas (we're about the same age, height and build!)

I got rid of a ton of stuff too...but because I moved! Time to start fresh.
