Weight Loss Shakes: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly Truth

Today I hesitantly joined a workout class that I have always been inconsistent with going to. I take insane amounts of mental preparation before I step foot in that door. I look for excuses not to go. Oh, it’s started 5 minutes ago. I’ll be too sweaty. What if I fart?  Then today I realized something, I am awesome at this class. I love this class. I hate cardio, but I love this class! It is an hour strait of cardio kickboxing moves and I thoroughly enjoy every second of it! So naturally, during some kicks and punches I started wondering why if I like this class so much, does it take so much for me to get psyched about it?

Let’s talk about the good, the bad and the harsh reality that it took me a year to accept (and still keep working on.)

However, there are 5 pantry must-haves to make healthy, frugal meals for your family. Let’s dive into what those 5 affordable pantry must-haves are and I’ll give you some ideas on how they can help you stretch your budget.

$100 Costco Shopping List for Organic, Healthy Food for a Family of 5

People are blown away when I say we spend around $100 per week for our family of 5. They are even more blown away when I tell them the majority of our shopping is done at Costco.
