How cool is this? and a shout out to the motivational bloggers out there!!!

Has anybody else noticed that MOST coupons, discount codes involve not-so-healthy food items??! It drives me crazy when I attempt to save money and clip coupons and 90% of the time, I clip NOTHING. It's all sugary cereals, high-fat foods, mayo and butter??! What the heck!

Here's what I found out about
They will offer "healthy deals" at 50-90% off natural and healthy foods.
Subscribers, pre-purchase the featured brands online and redeem them at their local grocery store at that low cost!
Can't wait to learn more about that and I'll keep you informed as I do!

Today's Workout...was super sticky and humid-yuck! But it went pretty good! I felt like I could have kept running! That's strange for me, since I'm usually looking for the finish line! Maybe I'm all hyped up about this half-marathon and feel myself gaining strength and speed! Woohoo! Or maybe it was just a day for a good run?! My running buddy and I are really focused and I'm so happy that I have her there with me each morning to stay motivated! I'm serious...having a workout buddy seriously helps!

Healthy Tip: when you find yourself losing control of your diet, exercise plan...whatever. STOP. Figure out what's going wrong and tweak it until it feels right for YOU. Things won't change around you until YOU make it happen! Face your fears head on this week and crush those goals that you've set for yourself!

Motivational Bloggers?!: I don't know about you guys, but I seriously find DAILY motivation through my blogging buddies! When I'm lacking the energy to get out there and do it, I find my favorites, read their posts...laugh, cry and then BAM! I'm ready!!! Their stories, struggles, happiness is what sends me out the door running with confidence each morning! I know that if they find a way to make it happen each day, I can too! Anybody else feel that way? Like we're all one, big support system!!! In my day to day life, a lot of my friends and family don't share a passion for fitness and health, the way that I do. So blogging allows me to stay surrounded(via the internet) by motivational people that share the same interests! It's great! Even my hubby likes to get on here and read some of your posts! And the best part? I find more every day! If I look at my favorite bloggers, read their comments, I'll find even more motivation bloggers to add to my blog roll! I love it...

Do you have bloggers that motivate YOU?! If not, where do you find it?

So true about the coupons! I found myself eating crap the other day... and asked myself WHY? What are you doing?... Figured out it's all because my hubby was driving me crazy! Bahahaha! All his fault... again. LOL

I agree that there are less coupons for healthy foods. But there are ways to still save money! My organic produce delivery is way cheaper than buying the same items at the store. There are more coupons to be found online for items like coconut milk, tofu, and veggie meat alternatives and tofu. Signing up for newsletters like Mambo Sprouts will also help. I have found that my key to saving money is to use coupons mostly on non food items - saving 90%+ on toiletries, diapers, etc, and then I can use those savings to buy better quality (organic) foods.

I only use coupons for things like toilet paper and soap - I find that with a coupon, I can justify buying junk. Doesn't matter if it's a great deal and I can afford it - it's just plain bad for my body!

I should really get into coupon clipping but I feel like I don't have the time.. or the know how. So thanks for the coupon tips! I also don't have a lot of healthy living people around me.. they support my habits but don't havr any of their own!! Its pretty frustrating at times! I love reading all my blogger friends, it def inspires me!
Ps im a new follower of you :)
