$21.25, Meta Day 1, What Rebounder to Buy?

So as of yesterday, I was up to 19.25.  Today, my new total is 21.25.

I have been having protein shakes for breakfast.  The hubby likes them, too.  I had some quinoa pasta and mushrooms with marinara sauce for dinner, but I had some cookies, too, for snacks, so that was negative in money.   I am definitely losing money on the snacks, so I need to be careful.

I really love getting back to Metamorphosis!  Day One went very well, and my endorphins were running high afterward, which was   I did 15 minutes on the rebounder, which was GREAT.  It was really nice to do cardio on the rebounder.  It was exhausting, though.  I had to do five minute incraments.  I also did 15 minute Ballet Beautiful Arms.  So I did one hour today.

The rebounder I have is a Cellerciser.  I have the half bending one, and I do have the stability bar to hang on to, like an old person.  ; )  David Hall, who makes them, is incredible, and has a neat testimony on his page.  You MUST be careful about what rebounder you buy.  You can buy very cheap ones for under $100, even sometimes under $50, and they will do horrible things to your body.  You can seriously injure yourself.  If you want to get a rebounder, make sure you buy one and invest in it.  Another reall good rebounder that is VERY expensive.  Another great brand is, which are bungee cord rebounders, but those are VERY expensive.  The cellerciser is expensive, but not quite as expensive as a bungee rebounder.  The cellerciser can be slightly noisy, but it doesn’t bother me.

And don’t forget, if you haven’t already, to stop PIPA and SOPA!!  Check out this link: 

I hope everyone had a nice day!  <3

$18.25, Weight Staying Steady, Meta Starts Tomorrow

Well, I went up a little in my money, but not quite as high as I had hoped by any means.  I ate way too many neutral meals, and then I flew today and was super queasy, so unfortunately, carbs is sometimes the only cure for that.  I almost threw up on the plane, so that wasn’t very much fun at all.  I usually fly much better, but it was just a nauseating flight.  My sister felt sick, too.  Ick.

So I am up to $18.25.  For sake of easy math, I am forgetting about my cute penny I found on my walk the other day, though it is still in my money jar and it will be counted at the end.

I am now home, though, safe and sound for a while, and I FINALLY get to start doing Tracy Anderson METAMORPHOSIS starting tomorrow!  I am SO beyond excited about it.  And I have access to my rebounder, so I will be doing the dance cardio mainly on that since it is so good for your lymph system. 

My weight has stayed the same, too, so still down only two and a half pounds.  I know it is because I haven’t been pushing my workouts the past few days and seem to do every other day, which is good, but not good enough.  I am definitely not making enough money for my year goal fund.  I unfortunately don’t have a working scale currently, so I will have to go by my clothing feel for a while, which, let’s be honest, is better any way.  However, I am feeling my love handles shrinking a bit, and my pants are starting to fit a bit better.

Well, it’s way past my bedtime, so I hope you all have a good night, or a great morning, whenever you read this.


Up to $16.76, Down -2.5 pounds

Well, my weight loss journey is going quite well!  In the first week, I am down two and a half pounds, from Friday to Friday! 🙂  I also have made a total of $16.76 from working out and eating well.

Yesterday and today for breakfast, I made myself a quick shake using unsweetened almond milk, vegan Sun Warrior protein powder, raw cocao, and a tiny, tiny bit of organic brown sugar.  Two healthy breakfasts = $1.00

For lunch yesterday was the…Cheesecake Factory, but I did so good!  I had a spinach, shitake mushroom, and goat cheese omelet (didn’t eat the whole thing), and one tiny bite of banana cheesecake.  It was a neutral meal, but my mom was so proud of me, she contributed 75 cents to my cause! 🙂  = $0.75

For lunch today, I had a small tuna sandwich, some olives, and some raw sauerkraut.  Neutral meal.

For dinner yesterday, I had some organic peanut butter and some “healthy” jelly on a few crackers.   Neutral meal.

For dinner tonight, I went to PF Chang’s and had the Singapore Street Noodles.  They are made of rice noodles and have chicken, shrimp, and veggies.  I consider this a neutral meal.  It isn’t fried, so that’s good.

For snack yesterday, I had blueberries!  = $0.50

For snack today, I had some homemade banana bread.  = $-0.50

I did not work out yesterday because we were in the process of moving, so I got movement done, but I am not counting any of that towards “working out.”

Today’s workout went well!  I went on a 25 minute walk, and…I FOUND a penny!  See, I AM making money working out.  ; )  I also did Buns of Steel video, so I worked out 75 minutes today.  I was feeling a bit lazy and was going to only do part of the video, but my sister said she would kick in 50 cents extra if I did the whole video.  : )  So I did.  I made = $3.01!

So my new total is $16.76! 🙂  It is great finding money on the ground, huh?

At dinner today with my AWESOME friends, we were talking about Tracy Anderson’s workout and Bootcamp.  I find myself missing Bootcamp.  I can’t wait to get into Metamorphosis starting Tuesday (hopefully) or Wednesday.  She just is such a great trainer.  When I see people who are consistent with her Method, the results speak for themselves.  I am also glad working out has given me two and a half pounds this week.  Hopefully once I get home again, I will be able to workout MORE.
