I got the Apartment!


I got the call today that I got the apartment! Yay me! It will be nice to have some wiggle room (studio vs. 1 bedroom) and I will be saving $125 per month on rent alone. I can also get Dish Network and save money AND get a DVR. What is wild about this is in the back of my mind I have been thinking it was time to move but wasn't doing anything about it and then Danielle called and said she saw it was available Saturday and as of Monday I am moving. God works in mysterious ways! So Carla over at Mizfit asked me if I thought the bodybugg was worth the money. My opinion is a little skewed because mine was a gift AND I am using the older model. However, I think the bodybugg has been the key to my success. It is a GREAT tool to help understand the equation of Calories burned vs. Calories Consumed. I am a visual learner and it really put it into perspective for me. There are pie charts, bar graphs, line charts - you name it! They do retail for $200 but they do go on sale on occasion and you can also get one on eBay or craigslist for cheaper. I saw one the other day on Craig's for $75. I also read about a sweepstakes for a bodybugg thru 24 hour fitness. You need to be a member but all you have to do is enter how many calories you burned in your last workout. I may even enter because I wouldn't mind having the newer version. Anyways, had a mellow night last night. Made the chicken for dinner and did some laundry. Now I have to think about packing. Yikes! At least we are doing the garage sale and I have to go through my stuff anyways. Planning on going to the gym with Karla. She has been doing really well and went 3 days last week! Until next time...

P.S. Jenn over at Watch My Butt Shrink gave me the honorable Honest Scrap award. Thank you Jenn! You are too kind!

  2. Hi KatieJ,

    I love names like that! Congratulations on getting your apartment. When will you be moving?

    I don't know what Bodybugg is but will check it out from your link. Sounds interesting, and like it could be a useful tool on this journey.

    Packing's a drag, but when you unpack in your new place, it'll be like Christmas. All your stuff will seem fresh in a new place!
