Man-o-Manischewitz Monday

How y'all doing this morning? I am doing pretty good so far. The winner of the Souper You Giveaway is Sarah at Onmyweightohappiness Congratulations Sarah! If you would like to print a coupon for $1.25 off of four cans you can do that here but hurry if you do because the coupon is available for a limited time only.  I will be doing another giveaway this week so stay tuned for that.

It was a good weekend overall for me. Saturday I spent the day getting organized and doing some heavy cleaning like cleaning behind the fridge, mopping the floors etc. It was hard to get around the fridge (I'm 5'2") so I took a broom handle and put a rag sprayed with 409 on the handle part and it worked wonders. 

I got my bike out Saturday and rode around the neighborhood and it felt FANTASTIC! I really do enjoy riding my bike and I have missed a lot. I even rode to the grocery store and did some shopping. I have a backpack as well as a basket so I was able to pack them up easily for the ride back home.

Sunday morning I did some Wii before leaving for the day. I used the Wii Fit and did the test before moving on to the games. I was happy that I have almost perfect balance. I know I have improved my balance because when I started using using it there was a definite favoring on one side. This is one of the benefits of strengthening your core.

When I was at Target last week, I picked up some 5 lb. hand weights. I used them on Sunday after doing the Wii. I had been using the 2 lb and 3 lb weights but 5 is definitely different. My arms are feeling stronger too. A little sore but stronger.

The rest of the day on Sunday, I went with my cousin Amy to look at alternate living situations for my momma. There are a number of options available we just need to make a decision. My brother is not working and so he is not able to come and help me right now so I need to buck up and take care of it. It really helped having somebody with me. When people offer to help, I try not to take them up on it as I don't want to inconvenience or impose but now I am accepting others help which takes some of the pressure off of me. Until next time...


    Great job on the workouts! I so can't wait to buy a bike, I miss biking so bad!
