I had friends in town this weekend and totally spent too much money. I do not recall how much was spent and where. I am upset with myself and the whole purpose of the savings blog was to help me get a handle on my savings. I guess it is like a diet- if you over indulge you do not dwell on it you just get back on track. That is what I am going today.
I have finally decided to put down some rules for my challenge for working out.
$1.00 for each mile on treadmill
$1.00 for each mile bike
$2.00 for lifting weights
Plus I forget my water bottle and bought one there for $1.25 adding that in to the mix as well.
