Two BIG things occurred to me while I was doing all that walking: first, I really need a new exercise bra (TMI?) and second, I could be toning while I walk. Thus began my quest for the perfect deal on a pair of Skecher Shape-ups. Yes, they're...unattractive. But everyone I know who owns a pair swears by them.
The problem? They retail for $100. Gulp.
Weight Watchers had coupons for 30% off a pair, which would bring the price down to $70. Not bad, but still a bit steep for me. I went to the Skecher outlet, where the lowest price was $65.00. I tried to tell myself that it was an investment in my health. I was not convinced.

They had TONS of Skecher Shape-ups! All styles, colors and sizes (for men too). They even had other brands of toning shoes like Reebok, Fitflops and more. After trying them all on I settled on the perfect pair of comfy Skecher Shape-ups for FORTY DOLLARS. FORTY! Which meant I had just enough left over for a cute red Champion exercise bra ($8.99). That's $125 worth of badly needed fitness gear for under $50!
I am one happy mama! I found some other awesome stuff that I think I have to go back for, like ankle weights for $4. And something that would be the perfect giveaway for one of you next month....but I'm not telling!
