SHUTTING DOWN BLOG

June 29, 2011

I’m closing down this blog….

I’ve decided I need more focus on what to write, and I’m moving my health stuff to sparkpeople.com.

Come check out my new blog: Crazy Cat Nerd. It’s still a personal blog, but it is more focused (cats, nerdy stuff).

A bit better; but an idea for improvement

June 13, 2011

 

Better than last week, but not as good as when Jimmy was gone! I’m having difficulty keeping up with the Wiifit and Hooping since he has kind of taken over the basement. I just need to try to complete my health goals earlier in the day, and work on other things in my office when he is home in the evening. 

Weight Change: +1.1 from previous; +5.3 from initial 

Last Week’s Goals: 

Water:  Drink an average of 24 ounces/day this week; Completed…Now that the weather is warm, I’m drinking more water, so this has become easy.

Hooping: Hoop an average of 7 min/per day; Failed…I had one day of 17 minutes

Yay!

May 23, 2011

So…the 1.5 I gained last week? I lost it and then some this week!

Weight Change: -1.8 from previous; +4.4 from initial 

Last Week’s Goals: (3 of 8… still taking steps backward)

This week was a real challenge, Jimmy was leaving on Saturday for a conference and we had tons to do before then. I pretty much ignored my goals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.😦 So, considering that…I think I did alright.

Water: Failed!  AGAIN. Drink an average of 24 ounces/day this week…this was attempt #5…I made it to an average of 23, though.

Motivation: Completed! Post to HCR twice

Education: Completed! Read 1 article.

Exercise: Failed. Yoga for an average of 5 min/day…Attempt 5…I made it to 3.7…I went for 10 minutes yesterday, but I missed several days.

Steps: Failed. The pedometer is AWOL. No idea where it went.

Spark Points:Failed. Earn 45 points on sparkpeople…I managed 32, though.

This coming week’s goals…

I’ve decided when I’m only going to move goals forward when I complete all of them. So this week will pretty much be a repeat of last week.

Giveaway at SoapOpi!

May 12, 2011

I’m currently hosting a giveaway at SoapiOpi!

In case you are not aware, I craft soap as a hobby. I sell my soap to friends and family at prices that just cover the cost of my materials- I’m not doing it for the money, but because I enjoy playing with color and scent.🙂

My facebook page: SoapiOpi is where I post items I have for sale.

Currently, I am hosting a giveaway. By simply leaving a comment on which scent you’d be most interested in seeing me create soap with, you are entered to win one of THREE prizes.

Currently, there are less than 25 people entered to win, so your odds aren’t bad. I will ship the soap free, as well…so it’s 100% free.🙂

When I hit 25 entries, I will add another prize into the mix!

I’m running this giveaway as a thank you to the fans of my fb page, to celebrate SoapiOpi having over 50 fans on facebook, and to get my soap to a couple of folks who might not have purchased any yet.

The contest ends tomorrow…so run over to SoapiOpi now!
