Bonus Blog: CoHP - The Staff Room

Monday, September 06, 2010

Professor Lupin has found another boggart in the wardrobe in the staff room at Hogwarts. This boggart has a special “talent”: it turns into what tempts you most to not live healthfully. Write a blog or journal entry in which you detail what you see when faced with this boggart and what you turn it into with that wonderfully helpful spell, Riddikulus. 40 points (once) for writing this blog.

As I open the wardrobe door out jumps a huge chunk of chocoate. As it jumps towards me I raise my wand ~~~~ RIDDIKULUS!! And it turns into a nice juicy delicious red apple.

I’ve been on a couple of freggies challenges that have helped me incorporate fruits and veggies into my diet.

I plan a menu for the whole week and put freggies down for my snacks. I try to keep up my calorie range as well.

I don’t know how long I will be able to do this, but I hope I can make this a new healthy habit for life.

I don’t feel as full and have lost weight.

A CAMPING I DID GO, A CAMPING I DID GO…….

Thursday, September 02, 2010

And I did have fun, virtual fun, but real fun too. I know it was the people who made it happen for me. My cabin consisted of: KPACE7, MAMAPH, KARALYN, ELLE, BEACHLVRM, KIN59VARA, KARENG717, MRSSARAHPHALEN, LOSINTOCRUISE, CHANILYE, RUNNERJUDY, NANCY-GIRL, ROX5CAR, JOYGILKHIL, *~*MICHELLE*~*. The counselors: JNJASHBY, AZ_CHICA2011, SUR@723.

We have some pretty good pranksters in our cabin, but I also have to do a shout out to HILLRUNNER, she‘s sneaky. There were a lot of others who would sneak into our cabin and leave a ‘present’ then sneak out. I remember you too RUMBLETIGER, I'll be back at LBB before BLC-14 starts. Never a dull moment.

Hey, you can have fun on virtual campout. We had pillow fights, story telling, treasure hunt and pranks, visits to the boys camp across the lake....oh, sorry, I wasn't suppose to tell that.

I’ve made close friends just like you make in real camp, just not the personal contact, but still a good friendship.

I wish I had gone to ‘real’ camp, but as a kid I was super shy and not into sleeping in same room with other people and eating….ugh! Picky, picky, picky. I’d have starved.

I love my teams on SP, especially the role playing ones. It gets me out of this world and responsibilities to a fun and different world.

I know there is probably a lot more I will think to say later, but this is this for now.

Harry Potter - Getting to Know Myself Part 2 - Follow up on Goals

Thursday, August 19, 2010

On July 12, I wrote a blog for my The Challenge of Harry Potter team -Getting to Know Myself. We had to come up with 3 goals we wanted to work on for the week.

This week we were asked to evaluate those goals with the following guidelines:
S.M.A.R.T. = Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic & Timely

Goals:
1) Clean/organize some hot spots around the house
2) Do exercises before going online
3) Keep up the laundry

Evaluation:
1) I do hit a hot spot like the coffee table, kitchen table or kitchen counter. Places that company would see when they visit. The coffee table seems to be a landing spot for the most: newspapers, books, pencils, remotes, socks (don’t ask). Periodically, I do a quick sweep and put things where they belong.

2) I sometimes log online just to check out teams and any new info I should know about a head of time. Also, I have been getting 20 - 30 minutes of exercises done before my mom calls me to get her up. Of course, she has been sleeping in later lately so that helps too.

3) I have been keeping up the clothes pretty well, now towels are another matter.
They seem to have a life of their own. Just magically appear in one big pile. {Poof!}

All in all, I believe I have done pretty well on these goals.

    I think that is wonderful I am so proud of you Courti. All we can do is our best to reach out goals.
Looks like you are doing just that.

Hey that magic pile of towels............one of my friends refers to hers as Mt. Washmore...........Nims falls on floor laughing hysterically, the tears, the tears, can't breath.....

Quick Track Fitness Counter

Saturday, August 14, 2010

I keep forgetting to post my exercise minutes on the tracker for the week. Makes it look like I've done a zillion minutes in one day....well, maybe not quite a zillion.

I don't post my cardio in the bottom breakout part, just in the quick track. Guess that is why I never know if I'm burning enough to match what I'm eating.

Someone said I can't post cardio in both quick track and at the bottom because it would be double posting so i pick the quick track as it is....quicker.

Hate to post strength at bottom as it takes so much time to put all the type of exercises in and I end up with a long line of strength moves that I don't use everyday. So, I post all in the quick tracker.

Oh well........

  Right after I started at SP, I decided to only use the quick tracker. It works for me! Just keep moving.

    I don't think it matters so much where or how you track it as long as you are doing it. Keep up the good work!

    Yeah, but I lost 2 pounds since last Wed!

I'd gained a pound after BLC-13. I'm going to miss the Appalachian Trail and the pictures. Amazing! I definitely would love to go there.

I have to find out what to do about the badges. My Aspiring Fan-atic Fitness Badge was up yesterday. So many things on the other badges I know I can't do.
