X-Box Kinect FAIL!!!!

My husband is paralyzed and wheelchair bound but a very active guy. My brother-in-law got an xbox kinect for Christmas. My husband and I were over there and we wanted to try it out. I played one game and thought that it was really fun. So my husband goes up and the game DOES NOT RECOGNISE HIM! As first we thought that he was just too short so we callibrated the game, no big deal. But the same thing happened, it doesn't recognise him. So we had our little niece, who is shorter than him, stand in front and the game recognized her and callibrated itself accordingly. Then she moved out of the way and my husband rolled up and the same thing happened. Guess we won't buy that system EVER!!! Glad we figured that one out BEFORE we purchased the whole system and it didn't work. BIG FAIL XBOX KINECT!!!!

Thankful Thursday (I know its Friday)

I am thankful for a few things this week....
1. My health, it may not be what I want it to be right now but I am alive, breathing, and can get healthier
2. Random acts of kindness, I lost me job a month ago, Sunday morning someone left a bag of food on my doorstep, I don't know who it was, but I am so thankful.

So I always thought that high cholesterol was for old people to worry about. I am going to be 31 next week and never thought that my health was in jeopardy at all. I had my usual yearly physical and female exam on Tuesday, (yeah I know you are all extremely jealous) and my cholesterol levels are double what they should be!!! Yes I said double!! I was pretty shocked. My Doctor immediately put me on lipitor and said I should loose about 15-20lbs in the next couple months if I can. He also said to get a low cholesterol diet. So I spent last night looking up low cholesterol food. Again I don't think I am unhealthy at all but I don't want to end up having a heart attack or heart problems before I turn 40. Now I am even more motivated to get in shape and have a healthier lifestyle. I will post my low cholesterol meals on here to show how things are going.
Todays breakfast: 2 egg whites, whole wheat toast and margarine (not butter)

Job Hunting

As some of you know I am job hunting and that is always a fun and emjoyable experience.(Not really but we can pretend right?) I am finding many jobs that are available but the pay is horrible. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Behavioral Science with an empahsis in Sociology. I spent YEARS going to school to get that dumb piece of paper and NOBODY CARES!!!! Which is the worse thing ever!! Some employers have started off saying that they have VERY competative wages and then offer me $10 an hour. REALLY??? $10 an hour for someone with a Bachelors Degree is competative? Compared to what?? Its so frustrating because obviously I need to find a job but I can't afford to work for $10 an hour. Yes it is better than nothing but I make more on umemployment than I would taking a $10 an hour job so its hard to justify it. I actually had a second interview with a company yesterday and I am REALLY HOPING that they cal me back today. That's another thing, I wish that companies would call you back, even if the answer is no, we will not hire you. Then I don't have to worry about it anymore. Okay ranting is over, thanks for listening!!

Thankful Thursday (Gratitude Page)

One of my new resolutions for 2012 is to keep a gratitude page, which I will call Thankful Thursday. So from now on every Thursday will be my gratitude post. So this week I am greatful for a few things.......
1. My husband, he is AMAZING!!!! He works so hard and I love so much for that
2. My washing machine, yes I love it, because I know how much it sucks to go to the laundrymat and to not have clean clothes, I might not like laundry day but I love my washing machine and my clean clothes

Happy New Year

Another year over, thank goodness!!!! I am very happy that 2011 is gone and done with! Now with a new year comes new experiences and challenges and resolutions. I know that EVERYONE sets a goal to loose weight and then usually everyone doesn't follow thru with it. Last year at this time I was ending a weight loss challenge. Sunnie and I challenged each other to loose 30 lbs by our 30th birthdays. Mine birthday is this month and last year at this time I was ending a weight loss challenge where I lost 26 lbs in 5 months. I felt wonderful and not to mention I looked prettier good too!!! unfortunately, just like everything else it didn't stay off very long. I have decided that I am going to get healthier. I am not going to set a ridiculous goal that I won't follow or that I will give up in a week or two. I want to get healthier and with that comes a few challenges. But challenges that I am ready for. I will definately follow thru because I want this I want to be motivated to be healthier.
1. I will work out 3 times a week for 20 minutes, This is a goal that I will follow because its not everyday.
2. I will cook dinner at my house atleast 5 days a week, Now this one might sound kindof funny but because my husband and I work so much its so easy to grab food on the way home this will help us not do that
3. I am starting a gratitude page, I will keep a gratitude page of things I am greatful for, this will keep me motivated and I will share these gratitudes with each of you.
4. I will share my fun cooking recipes with each of you, so you can see what I am making at home
5. I will also share my workouts with you, whatever they may be, I do not have a gym pass, nor do I want one, but will let you know how I worked out during the week
6. I will also chart my progress every week and let you know where I stand
