I am NOT a hoarder!!

I like to think of myself as a "collector" lol but in all seriousness our back room was bulging at the seems and the husband was getting a little upset a little out of control.

Exhibit A: (ok maybe a "bit" embarrassed?)

Exhibit B: (notice you can NO LONGER walk into the room?)

Exhibit C:

Now in my defense this is all stuff from couponing!! I am getting so good and I am LOVING giving most of it away. The hubby is too, he is bringing stuff in to the people he works with too. But I have actually been running into problems GIVING it away!!

See I had brought a huge box to a food cupboard that we had volunteered with? Well they REFUSED to give the stuff away.

THE WERE CHARGING PEOPLE FOR IT! So I asked for the reasoning behind it, I mean they give away food why not the toiletries and they said, and I quote " People take advantage of it so we have to charge for it."

And they were charging like $2 for shampoo and $1 for baby wipes!! I did not donate the stuff that I got for next to free for them to make a profit on it!

And then I called this womens shelter because I had TONNES of makeup and "lady stuff" that I had aquired and call to see if they would like it and was told "No we do not take donations like that because of an incident they had YEARS ago"

Want to know what it was? Some lady donated a BUNCH of Avon stuff and then tried to "enlist" the ladies at the shelter to do the business because it would help them get their lives on track?

Oh yeah.

Anyhoo.. Moving on I will find some other places that need it! I was thinking of the Ronald McDonald House and there are a few shelters around here that I have to call.

But in the mean time while I build up my stock again I am going to get a table at a flea market and DOWNSIZE everything I have then only get stuff that the places I contact will be needing...
Voila! There is a bed in there!

Free Yoga and Massage!


This sounds a little too good to be true. But in help of me getting back into shape and losing weight I started checking out Yoga Studios in the area.

I have mentioned here my LOVE for Bikram Yoga so in my research I was looking for a Bikram studio that does not charge $17 a class.

Yeah I know.

Expensive. But when you burn over 1300 calories in a 90 minute class and it can make you sob (in a good way) like a baby, $17 is worth it.

But its a little out of my price range at this time seeing how restaurants SLOW WAY DOWN in Jan and Feb and my schedules this week PROVES IT. (I have gone from 11 shifts between 2 jobs (70 hours a week) to 6 shifts (about 30)

Ugg yeah

But this studio I found has FREE YOGA AND MASSAGE for anyone who works the daycare for 1 hour a week.

1 hour y'all. I can do that!

Fingers crossed this all works out.. I could SO use a massage and a good yoga class to get my mojo back!

Bad Blogger

Life has been busy....

Working 2 jobs is for the birds, the hubby and I are waiting to see if we will be moving again in the near future.

Oh yes moving again (fingers crossed) hopefully to somewhere warmer.

I am over the winter its been SO COLD outside and all the snow can go too!

I have not done a shoe update lately so one is coming! I have to get my pictures together..

And this new year like every year I am working on me. I am not getting any older and I have no more excuses for not losing these last 30 pounds (or 40 but ill take 30) so far I have lost 5 in 7 days so if I can keep this up I will do really great.

Any tips on staying motivated to eat right? Go to the gym?
