The most exciting day of the week!
Here comes another weekend and all though I’m excited I get nervous. I do so good all week long and then Friday, Saturday and Sunday come along and usually trash out the progress I made during the week.
I did great this week as far as eating. I hit another all time low Thursday morning at 243.5. I was supposed to go to families for dinner and it got canceled so I rewarded myself to a meatball parm hero from a nearby pizza place. Don’t worry, I made sure that I budgeted plenty of calories for this.
Last night I made a whole bunch of impulse buys on AMAZON which I usually never do. We needed new guts for the inside of our toilet and all the local stores needed to special order it so I figured I’d just get it online. While I was browsing I remembered a few things I think I want from time to time but always think I’ll never use them. I thought maybe if I just bought them I’d get around to using it.
Hopefully having this blog will give me the push to try some of this stuff out and maybe even post more reviews. Majority of what I got is diet and fitness related so lets share some of these purchases.
Peanut butter & Jelly Quest Bars – I see all my friends on Facebook raving about how great these are. They are kind of pricey but I figured I’d give them a shot and the’ll come in handy as a sack on the run or meal replacement when I’m busy.
P90X Workout DVDs – Now this is a commitment if any but if I can get myself to actually do the program I’m sure to benefit from the results. Probably the biggest impulse by but hopefully I put it to use.
Perfect Pushup Elite – I suck at push-ups and a friend posted these on Facebook and said there awesome. Figured they weren’t that expensive so I’d grab them while buying other fitness related crap.
Resistance Bands – This was the last thing I grabbed because I figured I’d need them with P90X. There are a few sets but these looked to be the highest quality.
Polar Ft7 Men’s Heart Rate Monitor – This was the least impulsive buy. My Fitbit is great but if I plan to switch to other means of exercising other than walking/jogging I still want to know how many calories I’m burning. I’m curious how an hour of weight training compares to the treadmill.
I’m excited because its all really great stuff. Getting myself to use any of it is another story but if I do we’ll see if anythings worth of being added to my Weight Loss Weapons page. Also keep an eye out for reviews of these as I love to share my honest opinions of products I use.
Have a great weekend everyone and keep your fingers crossed that I don’t end up at an all you can eat buffet and get rolled out in a wheel barrow!
