Training Update: FOUR Days until go time


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Here we are.  I have four days before my first half marathon! I am so nervous I can hardly stand it.  This road has been long and it has not been easy, but I am almost at the end of it. Four months ago I began this journey having never run more than a mile or two in my life.  I had no idea how to run, what equipment I would need, or if I would even be able to withstand the training.  I have had nice runs and not so nice (running in a blizzard).  I have had migrane headaches after my runs.  I … [Read more...]

Training Update: 5 Steps Forward and 15 Steps Back


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Training for this half marathon is like taking 5 steps forward and 15 steps back!  I have started seeing a chiropractor/physical therapist for my migranes and so far I have seen a small improvement.  The trade off is that I am sore most of the day and the following day from the work the therapist is doing on my shoulder and neck. I had a perfect long run this past Sunday.  I ran four miles.  The last time I ran this same distance and route, I was dragging when I got back home and then got a … [Read more...]

This is the Year I WILL Get in Shape


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Every single year I vow to get in shape. Every single year, I don't!  This year is different and I will tell you why... I have money on it!  Not just money but pride also!  This year (actually about 11 weeks from now) I am running in a half marathon.   In non-runner's terms that is 13.1 MILES. That's right, you heard me.  Now, here is the funny part.  I am not a runner.  In my past, if I was able to run one mile without gasping and hacking for breath, I was proud as punch.  Now I am in training … [Read more...]

Happy New Year! Today was grocery day in the Carothers' house! With the Holidays and Jon being out of town a lot in the month of December, we haven't had a shopping day in several weeks.  We sure made up for it today!  We spent the morning printing and clipping coupons and doing match ups for Safeway.  Around here Safeway is King! We always find the best prices and are able to double our coupons and use them along side the store coupons for maximum savings. Today we added a ton of stuff to … [Read more...]

Too Cool to Coupon


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Are you “too cool” to coupon?  I used to be! Yes, I used to think only annoying old ladies used coupons.  I thought to myself, I don’t have time for coupons.  All the clipping, organizing, filing, remembering to take them to the store with me, bla, bla, bla…. No thanks! I really didn’t think couponing would really make that much of a difference.  I didn’t want people to think I was being “cheap”.   I thought I was “too cool” to coupon. When I first heard about The Coupon Wizards website, I … [Read more...]

Getting Your Coupons and Inserts Organized Doesn’t Have to Make YOU Insane!


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

The world of couponing can be daunting.  Trust me, I am not a very organized person in my personal life, and when I first began getting my coupon inserts, I just stared at them.  Inserts with hundreds of coupons?  How do I start? What do I need? For a while I had stacks of inserts all over my dining room table.  Insert Insanity was all too real in my house! I think I went a little insane trying to figure out the right way to go about getting all my inserts put somewhere in a manner that I … [Read more...]

Family is My Christmas Tradition. What’s Yours?


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

I have had the same Christmas traditions in my family for as long as I can remember.  Now that I am a mother of two girls, it has been so important to me to bring those same traditions to them! I grew up in a very small town in the foothills of North Carolina - a town so small it took us 20 minutes just to get to a grocery store!  My entire extended family still lives in this small town even though I now live in Maryland close to cities like Baltimore and Washington DC.   My husband and my … [Read more...]
