Harry Potter - Weasley Family

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Do you like Harry Potter, reading the books and watching the movies?
There is a team Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

If you are a Harry Potter fan and like role playing, this is a team for you. Just let me know if you are interested.

We have: challenges, support and fun. Come discuss the books and movies. It is all positive. The only magic is losing weight and eating healthy and making new friends.

The team is made up of 4 families: The Weasleys (which I belong), The Blacks, The Malfoys and The Potters. I mainly know about the Weasleys.

We have weekly challenges between the families. Do what you can if you don't have time to devote to the whole challenge. A little is better than none.

Some of the spells we've used:
Diffindo - split leftovers into single portion containers
Impedimenta - chew each bite 24 times
Reducio - use smaller plates

This is a private team, so you will need to contact me so I can have an invite sent to you.

  Great recruiting idea, Courti!!! I agree with you - I love our Weasley family, and the challenges are nice. I hope we get some new "adoptions" to the four families from this!

    We do have weekly challenges. We post on our home thread and have a separate tracking thread for challenges (like BLC). It is a competition against the other families. If you don't have a lot of time to put in on a challenge, the least little bit helps.

Hogwarts Fall Term begins

Sunday, October 03, 2010

The Fall Term at Hogwarts has begun!

The three lessons we are to work on:

First: to blog about 3 goals I want to work on this term.
Second: blog about a song that has particular meaning to me and my journey toward living a healthier life.
Third: decorate my dorm (spark page) or blog with pictures to show my house spirit. A bit hard to do when I have other teams to decorate for as well, so I may blog and split the décor between the two teams.

This blog is dealing with my 3 goals:
1) Catch up on my reading (the only time I seem read is on the bus while taking my mom to the doctor appt and in the doctor’s waiting room. I have three books started.

2) Try to avoid temptation
I had something else here, but lately I see the need to work on not being tempted by people or just my own temptation to eat the wrong things or out of my range.

3) Eat at least 3 freggies a day, whether fresh, frozen etc. As long as it has fruit or veggie

    Courti, you're going to do great this term. After all, aren't we Hufflepuffers patient and unafraid of toil? emoticon I can't wait to see what you have in store when you "redecorate", lol. Lots of luck on your goals, my fellow Huffie!

CoHP Summer Term Final Blog

Monday, September 27, 2010

We had to write out 3 goals that we wanted to work on during the summer term at Hogwarts.
My goals were:
My 3 goals for this summer challenge are:
Goal 1: Clean/organize some hot spots around the house
Goal 2: Do my exercises before I go online
Goal 3: Keep up the laundry

I haven't kept up the goals as I had wished but I have gotten them done. The house doesn't look like a horder lives here; I do get my exercies done, even though I do go online before hand (in fact, I think I'm doing better now) ; the laundry basket isn't piled to the ceiling.

I figure in the long run that I have made progress.

    Progress comes before perfection. I'm not sure perfection is even a good goal.

Correction to previous blog

Monday, September 13, 2010

Okay, I guess I was just too upset to think straight when I posted that I did 110 cardio min. I did do 110 exercise minutes, but only 71 was cardio. Sorry.

Better day

Monday, September 13, 2010

Well, mom didn't wake up at all during the night. That was a surprise. I even got a lot of my exercise in.
I was thinking about how many people on SP and from different states & countries. Where else can a person communicate so often with so many people from around the world?
I always said I never traveled to another country because I didn't have to fly. Canada is attached, but I think I'm doing Canada a misjustice (is that a word?) If Canada wasn't attached, I wouldn't be able to say I've been to another country.
I just wish I had more time and could have visited further north. We just went to museums and saw the falls. Awesome sight!
I'm very happy to have been able to visit this great country.
Maybe someday I'll be aable to travel across the seas to other countries. Would love to visit Australia, NZ, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany and so many more.

Maybe I should play the lotto...

    I know what my next plane ride will be, not a pleasant one. My dad is buried in Ohio.

My husband and I use to go to either Daytona Beach Shores or Kissimmee, sometimes to a theme park.

I agree; Spark is a fabulous way not only to make new friends but to meet people from all walks of life!
