Monday's Frugal Things

July 13th, 2015 at 09:51 pm


1. I started the day off right and sold something on Craigslist (just $5, but still...). The person I sold it to is the boyfriend of a friend of mine! We both had no idea when we were working out how to meet up. Small town.

2. Went to weightlifting class at the gym. Free because I teach there. I went to Pilates yesterday. (Still sore! That was a lot of hip work).

3. Had lunch at home (leftover tuna with celery and some crisps; also a plum and some blackberries). I love that there is a ton of fresh fruit in season. We bought cantaloupe, blackberries and pineapple. Fruit makes even my boring lunches sort of exciting.

4. Having some new friends over tomorrow. This always makes me look at our house with new eyes. I identified two quick jobs: fixed trim on a window in our bedroom and sewed a fraying part of our slipcovers. It's nice when new people come over because I take care of small things that I've let go for a while.

5. F seems keen to go to the pool (yay!). She went off the diving board for the first time yesterday (and then repeated her new trick about a thousand times). She's pretty excited to go back this evening. The pool is open until 7:45 pm, so I think we'll bring dinner over and D can meet us there. Tonight: chili and corn on the cob. Yum! Maybe I'l bring some pineapple, too.

I see that I didn't mention work at all in my five things... which is good - it means that everything is going smoothly. I got in enough hours while F was at camp and I got a lot done.

Hoping your day was good, too!

    What kind of weightlifting class?

  2. Buendia Says:

    I teach Bodypump which is a Les Mills class - it's light weights and high reps choreographed to music. It's really, really fun!

    Okay, we have that class at my gym.

  4. Buendia Says:

    Have you tried it? If so, what did you think? It's the only weights that I like to do because it's fast-paced and there's music...

  5. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    No I haven't tried it. I'm doing weights 3x a week right now - lifting heavy/few reps. If I added a class to my routine I'd want either Pilates, or *maybe* yoga.I'm *really* uncoordinated so group aerobic classes, etc. don't appeal at all.
