Working Out Together

Good work out today Sarah, skype is amazing. Day 1 week one. Sarah and i decided to work out together. So this is how we do it. Sarah plays the Jillian Michaels No More trouble Zones DVD on her big TV and she points her web cam to it and i plug my computer via hdmi cable into my TV and Viola we work out together. Until i receive my copy off course then we can just skype and work out from our own TVs at the same time. I discovered an app for my iphone a while ago called My Fitness Pal its a web site too and is great to record your food intake, and will let you know how many calories you've eaten for the day. So three days a week, plus recording what we eat should work right???? anyway good work out, see you Friday. Oh yeah biggest skype looser contestant get your skinny outfit ready i want to see a pic. Till friday

Glow-stick spiders

With Halloween just around the corner,and the kids out for fall break,we have been making lots of crafts,got to keep them busy.This one is really easy
Items needed:
*Styrofoam balls-you choose the size
*glow sticks
*googly eyes
So take a nail or screw and poke holes all the way through you may have to turn the ball over and do it on both sides.Next bend glow sticks and put in hole,glue on eyes.Or if your impatient use the glow stick it may come out uneven,I just pulled it out tried again and it came out fine,glue on eyes
