Weekend Thrifting! (2)

I went thrifting again and found some great things.

This time I went some place a little bit closer to me. I think it might be my new favorite thrift store. If anyone in Georgia wants to check it out, it’s located here: 3303 Centerville Hwy, Snellville, GA, 30039 (Goodwill, next to the Ingles grocery store)

This time I spent a total of $33.46 (tax not included) on 8 items.

1.1370121358531b
4 pairs of shorts

2 x denim
1 x tanned(?)
1 x pink gym shorts- the funny thing about these shorts is that they say “GT” on them, I still would have gotten them regardless… but GT stands for Georgia Tech (Georgia Institute of Technology). A school where all of the super duper smarties go. I’m not even trying to front like I went to that school, currently go to that school, or have any plans to go to attend that school lmao! It would be nice if I knew how to remove the logo… anyone know? *shrugs* oh well.
Price: $3.93 each
Brands:  1st (never heard of it, couldn’t even find it with google o.o), Bongo, Paris Blues, Champion

The REAL color. The flash made it appear lighter in the other photos

A green blouse, it’s really sheer and although it’s long sleeve the fabric makes me think it’ll still be light and airy. And I don’t know if you can see it, but there is a small dotted stain on the front of the blouse. Hopefully it’ll come out.
Price: $4.94
Brands: Courtenay

My most favorite find of them all!! I have to work on the back zipper a little bit, but it’s nothing serious. I initially thought it was a dress (found it on the dress rack), but after trying it on, I was like… no… I’d have to definitely wear short/pants/skirt under this. I love the pattern sooo much. Only problem is I have no clue what shoes to wear with it. Any ideas?
Price: $4.94
Brands: N/A (:( I really want to know where I can find more things like this!!!)

And that’s it. :)

June 2013 Squats Challenege + My workout Calendar

Hey people!
What’s going on!?

I’ve gotten so interested and distracted by fitness related things, sorry for the lack of posts. I do have some in the works, I’ve just been lazy about it.

But anyway, before I post this months Squats Challenge, I just want to say I kind of don’t do them any more. Don’t get me wrong, squats are great- Buuuuuut, the workouts I’m doing now pretty much incorporate a lot of squatting exercises in them AND weights, so I’m over the challenges. If you want to stick to the Squat Challenge, good luck, I’m still rooting for you! :D And if you’d like to try out what I’m doing… Good luck! Hahahaha!!

Make sure you are eating right. I was complaining to myself about how I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted from Insanity (1 week left!! thank goodness- am debating on starting another round or going into P90x), and that reason is my fault for not eating properly the first month. I was still occasionally eating a lot of junk, basically whatever I wanted. I immediately changed that the 2nd month. I even stopped drinking alcohol. x__x
I eat lots of grilled or baked chicken/fish, hella vegetables and fruits, egg whites, oatmeal, TONS of water, and fruit/veggie smoothies. Yep, it’s all I eat/drink now. (Occasionally I’ll have a protein bar- I can’t afford protein shakes yet, and I can’t use my dad’s- it’s specially made for people with diabetes *sigh*)

And I’ve been going to bed on time now. 10 PM-ish, waking up at 5 AM-ish to run on my treadmill or neighborhood. You get so much more done when you wake up early. o_o

One more thing……. I’m not a freakin’ fitness instructor or anything like that. Consult your physician/speak to a professional fitness instructor before attempting these exercises. I’m merely sharing what *I* do and tips on what MIGHT work for you too.
