Today I bought the new Kinect system that works with XBO 360. You can play games and stuff on it but you dont need any controllers. I bought a dance game and a sports game. We have been playing for 2 hours! I danced, played ping pong, bowled a complete set, and had a 3 ring boxing match and let me tell you, playing is a lot of work! This is going to be a very good thing on nights when we aren't able to take the Baby for a walk due to weather. She will be sad but we will be in good shape. You actually do the activities so it is running, throwing, swinging, dancing, boxing etc... It is gonna be a great work out, plus it is gonna be fun.
Kady and her Art played with us and it was a riot. If you or your family has 360, go get the Kinect because it is a blast!!!
The technology is amazing! It watches you and mimics your motion in real time... pretty amazing, this world we live in!!
I gotta go log my fitness minutes cause I have to go to dinner for Kelly's BF Art's 30th birthday. Uh yeah. Mexican food. After eating pizza last night!! Same plan tho... get a salad as soon as possible to stay out of the chips! Then have a single ala carte item or a salad without the delicious fried flour tortilla.... Wish me luck!

We are leaving in a few minutes to go meet some family at a big pizza place that has a buffet and a bunch of games and stuff. I have eaten lightly today and my plan, you ask??? I am gonna hit the salad bar FIRST! Then if they have soup, I am gonna have that. THEN, (and only then) I will have a peice of pizza (veggie or ham and pineapple). Two peices if I want it and they are small.
Then I will go and play some games and have fun with the kids in the family...
Have a good night everyone!!!

I have spent several hours on SP this morning and I have to say:
Stop whining! I am actually thinking about quitting one of my teams because of how negative people are.
Look, this is not easy. We knew it wasnt going to be. There are no secrets! Do you not get that yet? Do your profile, stay within the ranges, track your food on SP, do a bit of excercise and no it doen't have to be hard! Go for a damn walk! You do not have to run or join a gym or by a Wii... Just move more than you did yesterday. Put some music on and dance for 20 minutes, just do a little something.
The weight WILL come off! Nobody finds it any easier than you do. Nobdy is "Lucky" to have lost the weight. They have worked hard to do it. We all struggle. It is a journey,
Learn to enjoy your life instead of whining and complaining about how you hate how things are. Especially when you are the one who created it! We only have one. One day, one life. Make the best of it while working towards a better one!
Whining is not the same as asking for help or reaching out because you are having a tough day.
The definition of whining is: A feeble or petulant complaint
Stop it. Please.
If you need help or have questions, I am here but if you just want to whine, call your Mom.

I dont know why, but I woke up with this blog in my head. Im weird, I know.
I want to talk about potatoes. They are heavy for their size, we can do alot of different things with them, most people love them, they are versatile and delicious!
The potato skin is what we see when we look at them. The ugly, dirty, lumpy skin. But we still love them, still desire them, still want to consume them. And when you peel them, there is the lovely, delicious, shiny part that everybody loves, inside. Even if you don't peel it and you just scrub it, it looks better, shiny, clean, dark and lovingly holding the fluffy stuff inside. But the skin has all the good stuff:The vitamins and minerals that make the potato valuable.
We are kind of like that. We want to be the fluffy, yummy stuff that everyone loves but we have the skin on us, the weight, the fat. We want to peel the skin and just be the potato but we cannot separate it that easily. We forget that we are still loved even with our "skin" on us.
The skin is important. It protects that potato like our weight protects us. It keeps the yummy inside safe and clean. But if a potato is left alone too long, it becomes bad. It starts getting soft and green and rotten. Potatoes are meant to be consumed. That is what they are made for. If they are not used for their purpose, they have wasted their existence. If losing the weight is what it takes for us to use our lives and fulfill our purpose, then great. But dont hide behind it anymore.
Let's not waste our lives complaining about the skin. Let's scrub it up, make it as good as we can, let people see how important the entire potato is. Some people think the skin is the best part! I mean, have you ever gone to an appetizer section in a restaurant and NOT seen potato skins on the menu? No. Have you had the mashed potatoes with the skins mixed in? How much better they taste? How much better they are for you? And come on, who doesnt love Natural cut fries with the skins still on?
Today, be the best "potato" you can be! Fry it, cut it, slice, dice, chop, shred, mash, bake it up, but use it. Don't let today go by shriveling up on a shelf. Be consumed!
