Rise and Shine Feb. 28 – I lost a LOT in February, Safeway deals, last day to print coupons!

Good morning. It’s the last day of February. What a month it’s been!

For us personally, February was a month of minimizing. We went through the whole Clutter to Clean challenge, we paid off our student loans, and I lost 15 pounds on Weight Watchers! I haven’t mentioned much about Weight Watchers but I plan to make it more of a theme in March. It’s the only “diet” that has worked for me and I love that I don’t have to buy anything supplemental besides the membership – I eat regular food, but I watch my portion control and make smart choices about how I want to use my calories. I plan to share my favorite recipes, snacks and tips for Weight Watchers through the month of March. I’m not sure how it will come together – but I’m in this for the haul (I have a lot to lose) and I will bring you along for the highlights, if you’re interested!

And as a side note, I rarely accomplish so many big things in a month – many of these things (like the debt) have been a long time coming – and the clutter purge and weight loss was me just finally saying – go away! and making a choice to do something about it. It just all happen to correspond in the same month. I’ll share more about this later, but I didn’t want to sound boastful or insanely crazy for tackling it all in one month – it just happened this way.

Today is the LAST day to enter to win the night stay at Skamania Lodge, near Portland, Oregon!

Yesterday I shared a round-up of ways you can make money and earn rewards!

  1. I am so looking forward to your weight watchers recipes this next month. Just like you I am on WW and have lost over 50lbs. I love the program and I’m always looking for new ideas. Keep up the good work!

  2. avocadogreta says:

    Thank you for the Anne books – these have always been a favorite of mine and I’m excited to introduce the stories to my little girl and also listen to them as well! Thanks again! :)

  3. Looking forward to the Weight Watcher tips and hearing about what you are doing to lose weight and eat healthy. As someone who suffers from thyroid disease it is nearly impossible to keep the weight off, let alone lose it. It would be a dream come true to drop 15 pounds. Good for you!!!

  4. Way to go on a productive February! I look forward to your WW tips and recipes. Sometimes I avoid the coupon blogs because they tempt me to buy unneeded/unhealthy things. I think the WW posts will be an excellent additions to your wonderful blog.
