1.) Sometimes dressing up like you’re in the 80’s can be SO fun, even if it is 2012.
- Neon purple spandex
- Neon yellow legwarmers
- Blue pumps
- Hot pink tanktop
- Oversized white sweatshirt
- Fingerless hot pink fishnet gloves
And don’t worry, I went to a show called Legwarmers, which is an 80s cover band, so I didn’t stand out one bit. Can’t say the same for wearing the neon purple spandex around town yesterday though…
2.) Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism is a killer workout. I finally did it yesterday for the first time and seriously almost stopped after the 5th circuit because I was dying. I ended up making it through all 7 circuits barely, but MAN it’s no joke. It’s mostly cardio circuits with a few bodyweight strength training moves built in, but it requires no equipment except for a mat and yourself! I highly recommend it if you’re looking for an intense indoor cardio workout.
3.) Smirnoff Whipped Cream Vodka mixed with club soda tastes JUST LIKE cream soda.
4.) If you go to WeightWatchers.com and look for meetings in DC, Beth K. shows up as a leader! So weird to see my name on the site even though I’ve been leading for a couple months now. I actually start my second meeting tonight – so I’ll be leading two meetings per week going forward. One Monday night and one Tuesday morning, then done for the week!
5.) The thrill from saving money at the grocery store will never get old for me. My favorite thing to do is to not scan my store-discount code thing until after everything is rung up so I can see just how much I saved. It’s especially thrilling when it goes from this:
6.) Creating a menu plan over the weekend makes me feel better about the week ahead, no matter how much whipped cream vodka I drank (See Takeaway #3).
