July 2019 Empties

We are already at the end of August and I realized that I havent posted my empties for the month of July. So, without further ado, here are my empties for July.

This months empties total is $42.68!!

I was most impressed with the Pixi Glow Tonic and I am not surprised that it has a cult following. I had definite results by the end of the bottle. I have repurchased but I do have to use up a few other toners before I can open another. Its safe to say that Pixi will now be my toner of choice.


My year end total so far is a little over $900!!!! How are you doing this year on using up products? Are you keeping track?

I joined a gym!

I wont deny that in recent years I have gained some weight (and inches). A few years ago we belonged to the YMCA but had to quit due to a layoff and unemployment only goes so far.

I had been doing at home ‘workouts’ – basically yoga videos for light stretching and the occasional cardio, but definitely nothing that would show any type of actual results.

I had always struggled with my health and was always underweight (I weighed less than 100 pounds a decade ago). I was placed on a medication (prednisone) that literally packed the pounds on. At the time the addition of that weight was a good thing but with my age and sedentary lifestyle the pounds just kept piling on and before I knew it, I had gained almost 100 pounds in 10 years!

So back in June we made the decision to do something about our health. We rejoined the YMCA and we are taking it very seriously this time around. I love the group classes (Zumba, Body Pump, CXWorx) because they keep me motivated and I really enjoy the instructors.

Since June I have not lost any weight but I have lost more than two inches from my waist-line! Im incredibly motivated by these early results, but I know I have a long way to go!


Are you a member of a gym? Do you workout at home? Have you seen any results?
