I got the Bodybugg!

For any of you who watch The Biggest Loser, you'll know what I'm excited about :)!!
After my boss and his aerobic instructor wife sang the praises of this weightloss gadget, I just had to treat myself! I LOVE IT!
I recently received a check from my mortgage company for excess funds in my escrow account and I really should have purchased new carpet for my bedroom, but.........nope! New toy! A new toy that I'm hoping will help me lose the last 12 lbs and learn to keep it off. I've lost the same 20 lbs. many times over and as soon as I get within 10-15 lbs of my goal I start to slack off. I'm hoping this time, things will be different.

Here is a sample of one of my days. After plugging in all my personal data when signing up, the BB program told me I needed to lose 12 lbs and I would reach that goal by 8/8/10 as long as I maintained a 500 calorie deficit per day. I'm told to burn 2500 calories and consume 2000. I couldn't believe it!
I thought that was a lot of calories to burn and much more to eat than I had expected! This particular day was a zumba day :) You can see in the graph that I sit behind a desk most of the day and then got busy! ha

I'll definitely keep you posted and give further reviews of this program as I go along. So far, I think it's great!

Today there is an airshow at the air base about 40 miles from here. My son and I plan to drive up and see the Thunderbirds do their routine. I LOVE the Thunderbirds and the Blue Angels. So very impressive! It's sprinkling a little outside now so I hope that clears up by this afternoon! It's been 4 years since the air base has had their 'Friends and Family' day.

Have a great weekend everyone!!
