Big check for me!!!

Okay so I just signed up for 3 sessions of personal training.  I'm going to start off 3x a week in June, then up it to 5x a week in July and August.  Yay!!!

I'm excited to start working out for the first time and hopefully getting my body the way I want for my wedding.  I look at it as an investment and lifestyle change because I want to be a healthier weight and have healthier food habits. 

The truth is...I know how to eat right, but honestly, it is EXPENSIVE to eat healthy.  Chicken breasts at Publix cost about $13, and when I compare that to a 99 cent value Chicken Nuggets..it just seems like a better buy.I

I wasn't really going to work out, but I went to the doctors and he said according to my BMI, I am overweight...not obese YET, but getting there.. :c/  Then he said my cholesterol and triglycerides were high too, so I decided this may be just what I need. 

Thanks for letting me share ladies! ;c)

    Great, Cat! And changing your diet will be good for your little girl too! A little tip re: prices. I too struggle with grocery prices here in Florida, I miss my Trader Joe's! I'd recommend checking out the grocery section at Target...many Targets have one. You'll probably still want to buy some things at Publix, because Publix will have a bigger variety, but usually the prices at Target are better than regular grocery stores!

    Congrats on that decision!  (I need to get moving on that too!).

    Re. prices... do you have a Costco card?  It may be worth the investment.  We keep bags of chicken breasts in the freezer from Costco.  It is a whole lot cheaper than the grocery store.  So are the rotisserie chickens.

    And for fruits and veggies, are there any farmers market shops/stands around you?  We just found this awesome one where the produce is ridiculously cheaper than the grocery store.  They actually sell most of their stuff by the bucket (smaller, but still impressive) for a couple bucks.
