Checking In

I wasn't able to get the photos done for the post I had scheduled today. So today's post is just going to be a little bit of randomness. Sorry!

I just got back from a shopping trip to the PX. We finally got our insurance money last night, so we went today during Hubster's lunch hour to pick up a new MacBook. I'm excited to finally have a decent working computer again! PCs seriously feel primitive at this point. Normally I don't really go out of my way to shop at the PX and avoid taxes, but I insisted this time. So not only was the laptop tax-free, but it was also $10 cheaper than anywhere else.

V is going to start gymnastics tomorrow. I'm extremely excited for her! She's pretty excited as well. After watching my sister in gymnastics for pretty much her entire life, I know the kiddie classes are kind of BS, but I decided to do it anyway since it isn't very expensive for a 10 week session. She'll be doing the classes with a  coach, because I really wasn't interested in the mommy and me thing. I can't wait to get some shots of that!

Have you heard of the app GymPact? I've tweeted about it a couple of times and I tweet when I'm done working out to make myself look cool. Can I just say that I'm in love! It's an app that makes you workout, or it charges you. You set the amount of days for the week and the amount that you want to be charged if you don't workout, and at the end of the week, if you meet your goal, they pay you. If you miss a day, they charge you for the amount you set. It's meant to encourage you to work out, which works for me. They use what they take from those who don't work out, to pay those who do. So far I have it set for three days at $10 per day. It's easy enough to just strap the phone to myself and run up the stairs, or just jump and dance with the girls. The app requires you to be in movement for 30 minutes, which isn't bad. You can also check in at a gym, or use the GPS feature to track your run.

I feel like I really haven't had this blog design for a while, but I'm so excited to be working with Munchkin Land Design to get myself a new and improved prettier blog! I won a contest a while back for a blog design, and it's just about finished. Jenn has done an amazing job putting together a beautiful page.

Make sure you check out my birthday giveaway, which is going on until the end of the week, and my newest sponsor Angel, at the bottom of this post as well as the ladies on my sidebar.

  1. I've heard good things about that app! I normally don't workout with my phone with me though.

  2. I'm going to have to check out that app for sure ... you know how much of a gym whore I am!
    And Miss V is going to have a ball at gymnastics. Reagan loves it too!

  3. Yay for gymnastics!! Never heard of that app but sounds pretty damn awesome! I'll have to look into it when we get settled down!

  4. How is that app working for you? I used it for a bit and then I was like are they really going to pay me. So I ended up canceling it. But if it works for you I may have to check it out again.


I love hearing from you! Thanks for stopping by!
