CrossFit Chesapeake and Eating Healthy On A Budget 6/9

Tonight I ate the last piece of pizza I am going to eat for a while.  And I am very excited about it.

Today I began a partnership with a fantastic organization in Chesapeake, VA, CrossFit Chesapeake.  I have always been fascinated by the idea of CrossFit and going to their facility today it was obvious to see the differences from a traditional gym.  I didn’t see a stairmaster or spinning bike.  There are no bright colors or flourescent lights.   But I saw lots of weights, BIG weights.  And a family who is passionate about people live healthy for the rest of their lives.

You will see the name Wilkes on their website alot- that’s because CrossFit Chesapeake is family owned and operated.  From talking to Chris “Coach” Wilkes today he knows his stuff about nutrition.  And that’s exactly what I was looking for- because while I will be working out with these guys and attempting to lose weight that isn’t my primary goal.

I hear people tell me all the time that it isn’t possible to eat healthy on a budget- that all coupons are for processed food.  That just isn’t true.  So whether it is using coupons, stocking up when things are on sale or finding things online at discounted prices I am going to try to add posts with healthier options for you and your family. Coach is going to teach me about eating healthy so I can prove it can be done.

So periodically you will see CrossFit Chesapeake pop up on A Frugal Chick’s facebook page.  I will share deals on healthy foods that I find both in the stores and online- especially products that I don’t know much about.  As I learn how to use them I will let you know. 

I will probably complain a LITTLE bit about some sore muscles.  

And hopefully as you watch me on WVEC on Sunday mornings (for those of you in Hampton Roads) you will see there is a little less of me every week.  And I will share (on the facebook page) when I have successes in weight loss.

If you don’t want to know about eating healthy food don’t worry- I will bring you the same deals I always have.  What you eat is your decision, not mine.  But I want to give my readers the options to make healthy choices and still have the option of “Living Well Without Going Broke.”

So wish me luck- I begin at 6:30 tomorrow morning!

By the way if you want to come and work out with me CrossFit Chesapeake offers a week free to try it out!  If you like what you hear from me you can check it out with no cost or obligation!  Just check their website for details!

The New Reality Television Addiction

Some people close to me have a new addiction.

It’s very fun, frugal and educational so I thought I would pass it along.

At the nearby Norfolk Botanical Gardens there is an eagle and babies in a nest with a camera on them most daylight hours.

At last check two of the eggs had recently hatched and two very cute babies are making their way around.  The final egg still has not hatched.

So if you need something fun and educational to watch, why not check out Eagle Cam?
