A Big Thank-you and a Luxe Box

Posted by CheapRunnerMichelle

Good morning friends! I just to say a HUGE thank-you to ya'll after my last post.  I really appreciate all of your comments, emails, texts and Facebook messages - you really know how to make someone feel better after having a bummy week; soooo


So after my last post I figured we better talk about unicorns and rainbows today


No?!? Ok - well moving along then.

One of my goals this week was to be good with my eats and increase my workouts - and I am happy to report everything is on track to meet my goals this week. I finally convinced Mike to join me for a BodyPump class on Monday night, yesterday I took J swimming during the day, after we picked Mike up from work - we went on a 3km family run and Mike and I wrapped up the night with the super fun P90X Ab Ripper.


Then this morning I met Rhoda at the gym for 6am body and fingers hurt just typing this post.'s nice to feel the pain again :)
My Luxe Box arrived the other night...and the smell as soon as I opened it was soooo delicious! I haven't had a chance to try any of the products out yet...but I gotta say, this had probably been one of the better boxes that I have received...check it out for yourself:


Lastly is just wanted to leave you with a couple of posts that I have really enjoyed this week

Day with KT -   The Ebb and Flow of Friendships

Runner Girl Eats - Sometimes Quitters do Prosper

What's a post that you have enjoyed this week - that I need to go check out?

We are dressing up as a family tonight for a Halloween party at church...any guess what we are dressing as???


  1. Oh - thank you, Michelle!!! So sweet of you to link my post!
    I'm guessing y'all are going to be something Disney?!

  2. You're welcome!....nope....keep guessing....

  3. Glad things are going better- I love that your family makes a point to be active- and also be active together! So awesome! P.S. Ab Ripper makes me burn just thinking about it.

  4. ...yeah I'm not going to s.u.c.k.s...and to top it off - you only burn like 90 calories doing it

  5. Yay to working out together! I don't have a gym membership but that would be so fun, I guess we could do a video together, I'm not sure I could be as convincing haha

    Loved both Kims and Karens posts!
    Keep rockin!

  8. That's how our family fitness journey all began...I bought P90X, and asked (ok told) Mike that he was going to complete it with me :)

  9. You are very welcome. It was a great outlook on things that sometimes consider as "failures" in our lives
