Marathon Compression Socks: $19.99 (reg. $50)!

Groupon Compression Socks

Here is a great deal for my runners out there! You can snag a pair of Marathon Compression Socks for just $19.99 right now on Groupon. These socks retail for $50!

Here is a description of what they do, from Groupon:

Made from a soft blend of elastic material, these knee-high compression socks promote lower-leg circulation under a wide range of conditions, including running, travel, or muscle recovery. During airplane flights and other periods of prolonged sitting, the graduated compression helps prevent blood from pooling in the feet, reducing circulation-related discomfort. When used while exercising, the socks support the muscles and fight post workout inflammation and soreness. The socks are designed for both men and women.

My pal Jamie swears by these and recently passed this deal along. I’ve been hemming and hawing at the $50 price, so for $20 – I decided to give them a try for the long runs I like to do on weekends. Choose from a variety of fun colors.

Head to Groupon to learn more, and snag a pair. Quite a few have sold as of this posting, so not all color/size combinations may be available. Shipping adds $3.99, or FREE if you end up buying two pairs.

If you run with compression socks (or use them for other reasons), I’d love to hear what your experience has been! Please share!

Thanks, Jamie!

Losing Weight on a Budget: Sticking with your Diet on Vacation

4 Tips for Sticking with your Diet ... on Vacation (Yes! It can be done!)

For the month of January I’m running a new series: Losing Weight on a Budget. If you’re just joining me, I encourage you to head to the Series Page to catch up on the last couple posts you’ve missed to learn more what this is all about. Then, come back and read today’s post!

About a couple months after I started logging my food intake and running, my family headed on a two week vacation to the South. I knew we’d be passing through places known for great food, and I wanted to be able to enjoy it. However, I didn’t want to put on the 15 pounds I’d worked so hard to lose, either!

I’m pleased to say that it only took a few simple strategies to come back from that trip without having put on a single pound! Even better, I was able to enjoy beignets in New Orleans and barbecue in Memphis. The next week, I was able to pick up where I left off and I was able to successfully complete my weight loss journey.

Here are some of my best tips for enjoying yourself in vacation, but not packing on the pounds:

Tip #1: Consider eating at Weight Maintenance Level

In my post about how I log my food, I mentioned that there are two numbers you should know: how many calories you should eat to lose weight and how many calories you should eat to maintain your current weight.

Pictured above: beignets at Cafe du Monde, New Orleans. YUM!

One way you can enjoy yourself a bit more on vacation is by simply deciding to eat to maintain your weight (versus losing weight). Being able to eat 200-300 calories more per day gave me a bit more wiggle room when eating out and enjoying special treats.

FREE personalized Valentine’s Day card from Cherishables (pay $0.99 shipping)

Order a loved one an extra-special card this year with a free personalized Valentine’s Day card, courtesy of Cherishables. Use the coupon code LOVEVAL at checkout through Tuesday, 1/27 (or while supplies last) to get in on this deal.

Please note that you will have to pay 99¢ shipping, but I still think that’s a great offer for a high-quality card that includes your own special message or photo. I’ve given photo cards to relatives and friends for various occasions and they’ve always been well-received.

Besides the free paper card, every order qualifies for a free e-card, too!

DiscountMags Multi-Year Sale (1/24 and 1/25)


Whether you’ve been meaning to start up a magazine subscription or you’ve got a gift idea in mind, I encourage you to check out this weekend’s DiscountMags Multi-Year Magazine Sale which is going on today and tomorrow only (through Jan. 25).

What I like about DiscountMags as compared to other sites is that they sell non-auto-renewal subscriptions and do not charge shipping or tax. You won’t find a mysterious charge on your credit card down the road – your subscription will simply just stop.

Plus, if you already subscribe to any titles that they sell you can simply extend your subscription by entering the same name and address you currently use to subscribe. No need to fill out one of those postcards from the magazine itself and pay a higher price!

Some popular titles that might be of interest to you:

Better Homes & Gardens: $4.99/1 year, $8.99/2 years, $12.99/3 years, $16.99/4 years

*HOT* Amazon Prime 1-Year Membership for $72 TODAY only!

Amazon Prime membership

Today only (Saturday, January 24) Amazon is offering a 1-year Prime membership for $72! Considering the normal price of a 1-year membership is $99, this is a significant savings and a very rare discount. Please note that this offer is available to new members only.

Benefits of an Amazon Prime membership include:

  • FREE Two-Day shipping: unlimited deliveries with no minimum order size on 20 million eligible items
  • Watch unlimited movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video: options include blockbuster films and popular TV shows and over 40,000 choices
  • Unlimited music streaming: Prime Music gives you unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs and hundreds of custom-built playlists
  • Free unlimited photo storage: save your photos in Amazon Cloud Drive and access them wherever you are
  • Early access to Amazon Lightning Deals and get 30-minute early access to select Lightning Deals and shop new events on 30 minutes early
  • Kindle Owner’s Lending Library: over 500,000 free e-books – you can borrow one a month with no due date

Why I’m an Amazon Prime Member

I’m a happy member of Amazon Prime for a number of reasons:

  • I’ve made about 15-20 small purchases over the past year where I would’ve had to pay shipping, were it not for my Prime membership.
  • I use Amazon Instant Video usually once a week. When I was late to discover Downton Abbey, I was able to catch up on all episodes of Seasons 1 & 2 thanks to Prime. I watch a Mystery Science Theater episode about once a week or every other week. About once a week, I enjoy watching a comedy or documentary.
  • My kids access Amazon Instant Video frequently from my Kindle. If you are not a fan of the shows on TV these days – or maybe you don’t want your kids watching all those commercials – check out Instant Video. I was elated when my kids discovered Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood!
  • I sometimes borrow titles on my Kindle. As mentioned above, Prime members get the opportunity to “borrow” select eBook titles. I’ve done this a few times now and it’s been nice to just borrow a book without having to buy it!

I find I’m more likely to take advantage of the hot deals knowing I don’t have to “pad my order” to get free shipping. It’s also nice to pick up an otherwise hard-to-find item in stores (such as these BPA-free silicone ice pop molds I bought a couple months ago!) knowing I’m paying a good price and saving on gas money, too.
