I'm almost to the End of Week 1 out of 24 for the Be a Loser competition. I thought I would take time to share some information on some fun gadgets I have recently been introduced to. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is a frequent gym member.

Gadget # 1 - Skullcandy - Smoking Buds- These are the most amazing headphones for your ipod or iphone. I was recommended these headphones by one of my team mates. THANK YOU Clarissa! These headphones have amazing sound and the best thing about them is they stay in your ears during your entire workout!I didn't have to fidget with them once. I picked up my skullcandy at a Sporting Goods Store locally. You can also find Skullcandy at Target, Amazon, ebay or you can try your local sport store too. Prices range from ($ 10-35).

Gadget # 2- Polar heart rate Monitors- I was introduced to Polar watches a few months ago. The great thing about these watches is not only are the comfortable they come with a heart rate monitor. This watch also helps track the calories you have burned. I have a Polar F4 with a chest transmitter and I love it. I would highly recommend this watch to anyone who is interested in tracking calories burned during your workout. For More information you can go to

Saturday wraps up week one. One more day of waking up at 4:14.. woo hooo..


Day 1

Today was my first day of the Be a Loser program. I didn't get much sleep last night because of all of the anticipation. I felt like I was back in middle school again. I thought back to the last day of summer break before I would start school. I would be so excited thinking of all my friends I would see and the new teachers and classes I would begin. This morning I felt like I was in middle school again. Even at 25 I still get excited for the Start of a New Beginning.

Week 1 day 1: Today we did our first assessments: sit and reach, sit ups, push ups and we did our blood pressure and body weight. Tomorrow I will put to the test if I am in fact a true morning person. I will be waking up at 4:15 .. Yikes.. I better get to bed very early tonight!

Last thing I will leave you with for the day is a quote we were told at the kick off celebration this past Saturday.
The Man who says he Can and The Man who says he can't are both RIGHT.
