The shred is going well. I have skipped a total of two days since I began it at the end of July. Pretty darn good if you ask me. I started level 2 last night and it is challenging!! It seems to work a set of my upper body muscles, mostly arms, that I have not really worked hard before. A lot of it is done in the plank position (kind of like a taller push-up position) and I feel like I'm either going to topple over or break. Fortunately I'm not terribly sore today, which either means I didn't do it right, I didn't do it hard enough, or my endurance is getting better. I'm going to go with a combination of the three! :) I sure did sweat so I know something was happening. I am feeling a difference all over and I can't wait for the one month check!
I love to coupon. I love to shop sales. I love leaving the grocery store and having saved $25+ on things I actually need. But how does one coupon when on a diet? I was going through my coupons this morning and throwing away the ones that were expired (and that I clipped pre-diet) and realized that soooo many of the coupons I had were for processed foods I'm avoiding now. Even when I looked through the recent circulars, most of the coupons were for things in a box or a can. I still eat some of that, but I'm not sure it's enough to get my major grocery store savings.
How do you shop healthy and still save?
