Frugality, Fitness and Fun
Only leaving out the 'food' part of Food, Fitness, Frugality and Fun today....
Since exercise has become so important and central this week, and I've been faithful each day to working out, I have SO Much energy! It is exciting how much I can get accomplished in a day not being tired! (at all) The Couch to 5K program has been a blessing. Five minutes of walking, 60 seconds of jogging, 90 seconds of brisk walking, alternating to 60 seconds of jogging again. This continues for 20 minutes for the first week. (I have also been doing 20 minutes eliptical and 20 minutes of weight training)
Frugality is Fun, but we'll keep the two topics separate here :) The pantry has become a little sparce after the September No Spend challenge. However, there are items that should be used or tossed. There is a key lime pie cheeseball from Pampered Chef, that I don't ever remember purchasing....should I just toss it? Or give it a whirl? Other items like horseradish dip mix, and alot of canned milk that I'm not even sure are in date anymore... It will feel fantastic to clear all of this out. Even though it may be wasteful to toss an item, if it is not going to be used, or can't be given away, it shouldn't be given a place in the pantry.
Fun is really my new focus. Life is so full of opportunities! For example, I'd only heard of Etsy just recently, and I know that I really love making handcrafts, so when it was brought up that I should open a store I thought it may be a perfect fit. There are a lot of questions that I still have before I would open the doors of a store, but I did come up with a name :) "Abundant Harvest Creations" I may actually list some things after I become a little more comfortable with the whole process. Kind of exciting, and fun.
Blessings, you are all so great! I appreciate your taking the time to stop by the blog :)
