Restaurant.com 80% off code!

I quite like restaurant.com; I love how I can try new places for a discount. Sure, I admit, some places aren't worth it but when you find that one, its amazing! I had such an experience when I was in Georgia and there's this one little restaurant that I would love to go back to if I ever head back. The decor and atmosphere was just great, simple and cozy, but stylish! It was a bit on the pricier end but with these gift certificates, it really helped! ...And it made for a great night out with my significant other...just absolutely romantic. :)


Use "PLATE" for 80% off their certificates. Get a $25 certificate for $2. Have a night out! Just make sure you read the terms of the certificate before you use it. Some places require you to present it before you order.


Enjoy!

Weight Loss Wednesdays 4: Moving On...


I think I've had more than a lifetime's worth of packing boxes and lifting them. I learnt an important lesson this week...STOP BUYING THINGS!! Our house is filled with things that we've picked up at one time or another thinking it was useful and then they were used it once and after that, they have become professional dust collectors. Its been ample training for me because every single box I've packed lately could definitely weigh ~50lbs with all my university notes and textbooks. Talk about paper weight! 


Last Wednesday, I went and took a break and played a round of 18 at a beautiful course in the mountains. Such breathtaking views and you know what? I came home and my baby abs :) were sore the whole next day...even the bottom trouble area, which I was very surprised about. So, my advice this week is although you're out there enjoying yourself when playing a round, I personally like it when I walk the course because it gives you added exercise and plus, if you carry your own bag, a bit of weight training as I like to call it.  

Have a great week and come back next week for my newest updates. 


Join in with Tracey who started Weight Loss Wednesdays and I for moral support as we each go through our own unique weight loss journeys. She's currently also got a great giveaway going on for after workout recovery drinks! Go check it out.

Weight Loss Wednesdays 3: Falling Behind??

This week has been another hectic week. Helping my family prepare to move has been crazy. I've never realized how much work there is involved with moving...probably because I always just leave my stuff with my family when I move and only take the necessities. I don't think I've done as much lifting in my life as in this past week. And there's definitely more to come. I was only able to fit in 1 day of 10 minute trainer this week but the heavy duty work from dawn to the early morning hours does more than fulfill my daily exercise regimen. Surprisingly, I've actually lost weight...not very much but every little bit counts. Now, I just have to stay on top of my eating habits and continue to work and try to sneak in a bit of 10 minute trainer when I have a chance!


So, sadly, I seem to have fallen behind with 10 minute trainer but am making it up with all the lifting and physical work I've been doing this week. I'm taking a partial day off tomorrow to play a round of 18...of course, that's a lot of exercise too. No golf carts! Pure walking and carrying my heavy golf bag. Let's try to keep up and look forward to next week's weight loss Wednesday!


Join in with Tracey who started Weight Loss Wednesdays and I for moral support as we each go through our own unique weight loss journeys. She's currently also got a great giveaway going on for after workout recovery drinks! Go check it out.

Ice cream anyone? Baskin Robbins Buy 1 Get 1 Free Coupons

Baskin Robbins has my absolute favorite green tea ice cream. It really is to die for... I found some links to some buy 1 get 1 free coupons that expire September 05, 2010. I know these are valid in Canada but I'm not sure about the US. If you want to print one out and try it and then come back and let me know, it'd be awesome.  Anyways, a wonderfully frugal way to keep you and someone else cool this summer! Or in my case, I'd probably just eat both!
