Another week of Doctor’s Appointments, urgh. I had a UTI, then a kidney infection and now who knows. I’ve gone through medications and all these tests(which all came back negative by the way) and they still don’t know why I’m in pain and discomfort. It’s just so frustrating. They’ve scheduled me for an ultrasound to see what’s going on so we’ll see how that goes.

I did buy a book this week. The One Week Budget by Ms. Tiffany Aliche aka The Budgetnista. I have not started this book yet but I am very much looking forward to it and hope to learn a lot. I’ll let you guys know how it goes.

So this week I had an unexpected expense (my doctors appointment) Luckily it wasn’t too bad, I honestly thought it would be more so I’m happy. I had been feeling some abdominal pain off and on for about a week and decided to go to the doctor to make sure everything was ok. (side note: guys have it way too easy, they don’t have a doctor al up in their business poking and prodding at them, just saying) Anyway, they gave me a full lady exam and turns out that they are still not sure what’s going on with me. They gave me meds for an infection but and told me to take it and see how I feel. I have some signs and symptoms of an infection, but not enough for them to be sure. Hoping and praying it’s nothing serious. I also bought some other items for the house. We’ve had this three pictures rolled up in a tube for over a year and have never found frames for them. We looked for a while and couldn’t find anything so we gave up and now that we moved into the new place, we were reminded of them so I decided to look for frames again. We found some we liked and I went ahead and bought a couple more items we needed. We’re trying to buy better food for our dog Dylan. He eats so little as is, so it’s not like we’ll go broke from buying him better food. He deserves something good, right? As for the juicer, it’s my mom’s birthday next month and she’s been talking about a juicer ever since I did my juice cleanse so we decided it was time she got one. I normally never shop on HSN but a friend told me about this juicer they had as their deal of the day; 50% off, you can’t go wrong with that. We got it for a good price plus we don’t have to look for a present for my mom.

How was your week? Any unexpected “emergencies”?

Being Healthy Ain’t Cheap

snack timeI’ve started a new workout and I’m so excited. It’s fun to do and I’m getting addicted which in this case, it’s a great thing. I’ve always liked exercising but finding something I truly have fun with and get a workout at the same time, now that’s the trick. I’m currently doing the Brazil Butt Lift DVDs and they are incredible. You really feel the workout and you actually sweat. Plus the guy has a funny accent so even if you don’t do the workout, you exercise your abs from laughing at him. Anyway, as fun as working out is, it ain’t cheap. My gym membership alone costs me $33.56 a month. Then you need workout clothes, and workout shoes and those are definitely not cheap. Then you start adding extras like DVDs to work out at home, plus your  essentials like a yoga mat, a cute water bottle, a pedometer, etc… You get the idea. Just in workout gear, you’re up $200 easy. But working out isn’t the only part of a healthy life style.
