I worked out in the basement last night and I did 10 straight minutes on the treadmill without stopping once!!!!!! I can’t believe how much more I am capable of doing. When I started on the treadmill it was ALWAYS stop, go, stop, go, stop, and go! The last few minutes where the worst! Just when I wanted to give up I kept myself going. I know 10 minutes doesn’t sound like a lot but trust me, try it ha-ha. It feels like forever when you’re on it! At least it felt like forever for me. After that I did 10 straight minutes on the exercise bike with a couple small breaks then I did my weight stuff.
Saturday we had our rummage sale. We were supposed to have it Fathers Day weekend but we just didn’t have enough time to get all of our stuff together so we had it this past weekend. We did great! Didn’t have any high ticket items but I was surprised all together we came out with a little over $200! Most of the stuff was my Moms but she is awesome and we split the $’s 50/50. We started around 8 and closed up around 3. I was the cashier lol and I forgot to wear my tanning oil and I got so burnt! The kind of burnt where it’s more comfortable to not wear a shirt and where it hurts when you put your arm up. It’s gotten better but the first day you could have fried an egg on it from the heat that was coming off of it!
Before I wrap this up I wanted to share a teeth whiting tip I found on Pinterest. If you take peroxide and rub it on your teeth with a q-tip without closing your mouth and hold it open after you put it on for about 10 seconds it will whiten your teeth if you do it daily. Today is my first day that I tried it and it pretty much has the same effect/taste as the strips I used! I’ll take the cheaper method lol. I will keep it up and let you guys know how it’s going because those whitening strips are expensive! It was like $45 for a 14 day kit that my Mom had gotten me.
Also that frying pan I had posted a while back where you can cook without oil/butter works ok. You can’t have the burner on too high or it will burn but it doesn’t stick. It almost seems like it gets hotter faster. I still use my 0 calorie cooking spray with it.
