To Do: Check Out listography.com It’s A Great Find

I’m so happy!  I found the coolest site,  listography: life in lists.    It is just what I need!  I have already made a grocery list, an on-going to do list, and a to do list for today.  That is just the beginning for me.  I can’t wait to have the time to add more lists on there!!!!  That will be my reward for finishing off the daily list, ha!

I am currently in a SparkPeople Biggest Loser Competition.  Today is weigh-in.  I hope to lose .5 lb./week.  I have 13 lbs to go before my goal weight of 125 lbs.  I have been walking a lot more this week.  I love my  free  Walk Across America program.

My son got a laptop for his early birthday present yesterday.  He loves it.  I might check it out later with him.  It’s an HP 15.1 in.  My husband can always find the best deals.  He’s the greatest!

Now, on to the list!

Drop Dead Diva Is The Best New Show! Plus, More Guaranteed Rambles!

My favorite new show?  Drop Dead Diva!!!!!  I can’t wait to watch the next one.  I have set my DVR to record the series.

I don’t feel very inspired this morning.  I do feel great, but not full of bright ideas.  I guess I’ll just ramble on as usual.

I have walked 11.6 miles so far.  I have been tracking my miles for about a week now on exercise.lbl.gov.  I began in Yorktown, VA.  Now I’m 1.3 miles from Williamsburg, VA.  There’s pictures to “see”  where you’re going along the way.  I’m taking the TransAmerican Trail.

I continued making my music list with speeds yesterday.  It is so fun to walk/run to the beat of your favorite songs.  Time and distance go by swiftly that way.  I hope to get in a long walk/run today.

I tried out my new body ball yesterday.  My son wants one of his own.  We wound up taking turns using it, after a song played out on the radio.  I like to bounce to the music.  It reminds me of the exercise equipment I jumped on in elementary school decades ago.   I know this is not the best way to get in shape using the body ball, but it is a very fun warm-up exercise.

I plan to scan some more of my grandpa’s letters today.  Here is a Christmas postcard that he sent to my grandma.

Bye for now!  More ramblings later!

Hmmmm….How Can I Make My Blog Inspiring?

My blog’s name is “Inspireandbeinspired”.  I would like for this blog to be inspiring, but it is just a taste of my simple life with a few things that I have found interesting.  After reading my posts, I realize how mundane my life sounds.  This isn’t inspiring!

IDEA:  I’m thinking of writing some things down that I like to do and dream of doing, adding some images to create some inspiration to this blog. I’ll try to post in this way for the next blog.

I had fun with my workout today!  I listened to the songs on my mp3 while adjusting the speed of my treadmill to match the rhythm.  Here’s the list that I worked out to and the miles per hour that I was walking/running for each song.

  1. “Vogue” by Madonna – 3.1
  2. “Keep Your Hands To Yourself”  by Georgia Satellites – 3.1
  3. “Wild, Wild West” by The Escape Club – 3.8
  4. “Material Girl” by Madonna – 3.6
  5. “Stay” by Maurice Williams – 3.1
  6. “Tonight She Comes” by The Cars – 3.8
  7. “My Prerogative” – by Bobby Brown – 2.9
  8. “La Bamba” – 4.0
  9. “Lean On Me” by Club Nouveau – 5.0
  10. “Jump” by the Pointer Sisters – 3.6
  11. “99 Luftballons” by Nena – 5.6
  12. “Love Man” by Otis Redding – 4.0
  13. “When Doves Cry” by Prince – 3.3
  14. “Doctor, Doctor” by Robert Palmer – 3.7

I’m planning to figure out the treadmill speeds for the rest of my mp3 songs.  After writing all of the information down, I want to make a polished playlist, picking out the songs based on their speeds.

I went 3.1 miles on the treadmill today!  I hope to get more in tomorrow(actually today now).

I love to eat Honey Nut Cheerios with yogurt!  It’s my new snack.  You know what’s so much tastier?  Honey Nut Cheerios with cherry vanilla ice cream!!!!!  Yogurt by itself is blah!

OK, I’m rambling!  This blog was not created in hopes of having a rough draft for publication.  I am trying to be more spontaneous and I need to loosen up in life. Life needs to be fun!

I love this new website called exercise.lbl.gov.  You can virtually walk across America and check out the scenery as you make your stops.  You enter your miles for each day walked.  Your information is saved and recorded onto your calendar on the website.  There is an option to be emailed when you cross each state line.  You can go by your user ID number or your first name.  Hmmmm….!!!!

I’ve noticed that it is now after midnight, but I’ll finish this post with the same title that I began with .  When I began this blog, I decided to just use the date for my post titles.  It’s just simpler.

There are 2 more websites that are interesting to me.  I will note them here.
