It’s been awhile since I talked about my exercise routine. I was walking with my co-worker twice a week during lunch. I had two motivations for doing it.

The first reason was I wanted to burn some calories. I felt like I didn’t have any time to do anything with my schedule and noticed lunch was a bit open ( I had an hour for lunch). 

The second reason was I was spending too much money eating out. I rather save the money and improve my health at the same time.

Where am I now?

I’m now walking at least 30 minutes a day 4 days a week. It’s light, not strenuous. With this heat, it’s just right for me.

I’m also working out with my husband during the evenings.  We’re trying to get in shape and have more energy. It’s motivating to work out as a pair at home as it keeps us accountable without the scrutiny (and costs) of going to a gym.

We bought some items for the workouts. My husband is using dumbbells and I’m using resistance bands. We went to Wal-Mart and got our equipment.

Purchases we’ve made on exercise equipment:

  • 3 Dumbells ( 2- 15 lbs weights & 1-8 lb weight to make a pair)
  • 2 Resistance Bands
  • 1 Heart rate monitor (The monitor is was the most expensive item. It was $28)

The total spent this month: around $60

Please wish us well. We’ll try to occasionally update you on our progress.  If you have any tips or advice, please let me know!
