Good morning!! :mrgreen:

First things first: BREAKFAST! I started my day with two slices of toasted carrot raisin Manna Bread with Barney Butter spread on top. Melted Barney Butter is pure heaven to me.


On the side, I had a few slices of watermelon. I also plan to drink a glass of iced coffee with soy milk as no morning is complete without one! 😉


Cost of Your Health

So, I had no idea what to blog about this morning. Most mornings, I wake up with a zillion ideas running through my head, but not today. I just stared blankly at my computer screen. I wrote about “splurging” at the grocery store over on Trading Up Downtown this morning, so I thought it’d make for an interesting Question of the Day on CNC.

If you regularly read Trading Up Downtown, you know that I am a total cheapskate. I’m always looking to save money and I don’t easily part with my hard-earned dollars. But, when it comes to my health, I’m more likely to spend. I do, however, make an effort to save where I can. For instance, I’ll shell out extra bucks on a Garmin because I know that I’ll use it A LOT, but I save on workout gear. I buy shorts and pants from Old Navy and Target and cheap tank tops and socks from Walgreens and Kmart. (That stuff just ends up sweaty and gross!) In the food department, I splurge on Greek yogurt and sometimes organic produce, but I save on my grocery bill by meal planningbuying reduced/damaged produce, and cutting coupons. For me, being healthy doesn’t need to be expensive, but sometimes my health is worth the splurge.

Question of the Day

In what ways do you splurge and save on the cost of your health?
