100th Post and exciting new adventures!

Welcome to my 100th post! This is very exciting for multiple reasons. First, well, 100 posts is awesome! I guess I have a lot to say! Second I have 2 really awesome things to talk about!
First - I am the LEADER of one of the 10 groups in the US chosen for the Fit Bottomed Girls Weight Loss Challenge - July. I am SO excited about this opportunity, as many of you know. I see this as a stepping stone to my ultimate goal of helping people become healthy, fit and happy as a career. I am currently looking for DEDICATED, HARDWORKING, MOTIVATED ladies to join this group. Together, in 8 weeks, we are really going to change our lives for the better! Never heard of Fit-Bottomed Girls? Check them OUT! More about this as we move toward July...

ALSO - I got my FITBIT last night! I am SOO excited. As I learn how to use the program and see how it uploads itself, and tracks all of my movement for me, and I log my food into the data base - I can really see what I am burning vs. what I am taking in. I LOVE it so far! It also tracks your sleep and tells you what % efficiency you are getting from your sleep. For example, last night, it took me 14 minutes to fall asleep, I woke up 7 times (most of those I don't remember), I was in bed for a little more than 8 hours and asleep for 7 hours, 45 minutes total, and my efficiency was 95%. Yes, it gives you ALL that info. It's SO interesting. Why would you care about your sleep, you ask? Because many studies have shown that people who don't get enough sleep can have a harder time losing weight. Also, if you see that your efficiency is not what it should be, it could be because of a medical condition, and it could help cue you to see your doctor! So far, I REALLY LOVE my Fitbit...and my hubby is super jealous. Eh, Father's Day is coming - maybe I can talk the boys into getting one for him ;-)
So, I am super excited about lots of stuff today! I hope everyone else is having a fab day as well!


  1. Congrats on post 100. Please do blog more on the fitbit. I'm sure many folks out there would be interested on how you wear it, use it, how it helps. Maybe a pic of where you clip it, etc. I have been tempted by the BodyBugg for ages...but never caved. Who knows, might like the Fitbit better, right?

    Happy new "century" of posting.

  2. Great ideas, Princess! I will do that! I'm going to get the workings of it down pat, and I will give a full blown review! So far - I am loving it!

  3. Congratulations on 100 posts! As a reward, I have chosen your blog for a Stylish Blogger award!
