I have taken on a NEW Challenge! And I need SUPPORT!!

Thursday, December 30, 2010

I have been away for a while. I guess everybody falls off sometimes. But the good news is that I'M BACK! And I've taken on a new challenge. I am hoping this will help me stay motivated to keep going. I'm going to need your help though. Yes you! If your reading this I'm talking to you. Please join me on my journey and help me stay motivated. I only hope that I can help motivate you in return by doing this.

A few days ago I took on a new challenge that I hope will keep me going the distance and lose the weight I want to in order to be free of myself. I have decided to lose weight by playing Kinect game on my Xbox 360. I know what your thinking, "Absurd!, How can you possibly lose weight playing games?"

To answer your question I can only say, we'll just have to find out how. I don't know if it will work, but I have confidence it will. I have been playing Kinect games since it was released in November and have found the games to be very invigorating. After playing I find my arms, legs, abs, back, shoulder and buttock feel like a they have had a good workout and I feel like I have a overall sense of well being. My husband and I joke about me becoming "the girl who lost weight with Kinect" lol.

I have since realized I can implement this into my everyday life. So I have begun a blog where I write about my days workout with Kinect and I will keep track of if here on Sparkpeople. I am resetting my ticker and starting from scratch. I am going to try to keep up with it everyday and keep going until my goals have been met. That's where you come in, I need your help in keeping me motivated.

So please visit my blog and show your support! You can leave me messages on there or on here or on both if you want. I need your help! Also request friendship on here if you would like. I need all the people I can get behind me on this. Thanks in advance!

Here is my blog. http://www.squidoo.com/how-im-losing-weigh

    I am also using the Kinect as tool to loose weight. I just joined the Kinect to Spark team. I love the idea of blogging about your journey. It is something I was toying with as a motivator. Good Luck!

Monday- Getting Restarted

Monday, August 09, 2010

Sometimes it is difficult to find the motivation to get restarted on the working out for the week. I usually take it easier on the weekends, then pick it back up on Monday. Sigh, I just gotta do it or I'll regret it.

Also, the medication I was trying for my pain, didn't work. So that doesn't help me want to get back on very easily. Time to get back to the doc.... again.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great spark to get you going today. Have fun!


Takin the Day Off

Saturday, August 07, 2010

Today is my day off from working out. I did however clean the house pretty good. My mother in law is coming over today while my husband and I go see the movie "Inception". So I had to make sure the house looks nice. I guess I technically didn't take the day off... close enough ;)

I am excited to go see the movie today. Time away is always nice. Plus, we've heard that movie is really good. We were also told to go see it in IMAX. My husband insists that we do it.

I have been holding off eating anything with high calories as well so I can have some popcorn with m&m.... sooooo good. If you've never tried it, you should. Pop em' in your mouth at the same time and.... yum. I always say, someone should make chocolate covered popcorn. It's really good, really, try it sometime.

Anyway, good luck to all you sparks out there. I hope your get your spark on today!!!!

I love free stuff!!

Friday, August 06, 2010

I am addicted to finding free stuff. Especially this site
http://www.listia.com/?r=66485 it's like the ultimate free stuff site. It's called listia and basically you get free credits for being active with the site and then you use credits to bid on things other members are getting rid of.

I LOOOOOVE Listia! It's the first place I visit when I'm online. I love it because I have gotten a lot of needed stuff for my son from there, like clothes or shoes. Sometimes a toy. I also get a few things for me as well.

I have a blog about it here if you want to read more about it.

I also have a a couple other blog about getting free stuff and swapping stuff.

And I promise you, I'm not trying to promote anything. I just wanted to share the goodies with you. These are my favorite sites and I save a lot of money using them. I not going to get anything from you!

So I hope some of you can find this stuff as useful as I think it is. Good luck and Happy Sparking!

    another great one is freecycle.com - you can find your local city and sign up through Yahoo Groups (although I HIGHLY recommend creating an email folder and rule for it because it can be up to 100 emails a day!). I'm a SpEd teacher and you don't get much better than free!
