Staying motivated, not easy when it’s cold.


A cyclist with a mountain bike gets a workout ...

Today I let myself down. I was wanting to go on a winter mountain bike ride on my GT in the middle of the day when it was at its warmest. I recently bought some medium duty cold weather gear from http://www.sunnysports.com and have been itching to try it out. Now you do have to understand that it has been super cold here in Colorado for the last four days. But I was all set. The forecast called for it to be 37 degrees. I ran an errand in my car and saw people commuting to work or to CSU which all got me excited to go. Than I got home and the chill set in and I wimped out. When I looked up the temp it said it was only 22 degrees out. But I should have gone outside. Later when I did go outside it didn’t even feel very cold. I was really bummed and disappointed in myself.

But I’ve learned from it, and I plan to remember this little episode and grow from it. As long as I do that and in the future don’t miss chances like today than I can live with it.

Staying motivated, pushing one’s self, that is what it is all about!

Rise up and throw off the blanket of ignorance you are snuggled under!


SHARM EL SHEIKH/EGYPT, 18MAY08 - Muhammad Hosn...

Image via Wikipedia

You’ve heard it before. Ignorance is bliss. Well yeah in some ways that is true. But want to know what kind of bliss it is? It’s the daily humdrum of just getting by. It’s the reason we find ourselves more and more obese even tho we claim to be health conscious. Just look at the people of walmart website.pow It’s disgusting. man boobs, side boobs, back boobs. Who knew there were boobs we did not want to see?

You must rise up!! Throw off that security blanket of ignorance. Fight back! To quote Anti-flag “you gotta die die die for your government, die for your country THAT’S SHIT!” Our government should be giving its life for us, the citizens not the other way around.

If you think President Obama will affect change you are seriously delusional. If you think a republican/libertarian or any other member of our current government system will affect change you are seriously delusional.

You can’t change the system from with-in. It’s a fallacy. Much like the 3rd party system which is promoted simply to placate us and waste our time. By telling you to vote for a 3rd party, or convincing you that by becoming the man, you can beat the man they cut you off at the knees. They stop you from really doing anything. Complacent and happy it’s a lot like after thanksgiving high on turkey we want to move.

I get it. We can’t all quit our jobs and lead a revolt. And we don’t all need to have a bloody coup like they have tried in some places. At times it can be as simple as not settling. Speak up when things are wrong, make your voice heard. Preach the truth from the roof tops.

And sometimes, just sometimes an injustice comes along that is so large and so grave we must rise up. They are doing that right now against Egyptian leader Mubarak. Those people started a peaceful protest, they wanted to make their voice heard. They were trying to do the right thing and violence lashed out at them. These people are amazing. They are risking their lives. This stuff is really happening!!! It is going on right now. Don’t be put to sleep by the daily routine. Pay attention, raise up, speak up, stand out!!!

To protect your future you must be strong and willing to participate. You can’t complain when you do nothing about it.

For on the ground real news about Egypt‘s revolution follow 3arabawy and sharifkouddous

Education yourself, make up your own mind and then tell others!

Android App Review: Calorie Counter by Fatsecret


Retro Video Game Cupcake Tower

Calorie counters. There are a lot out there. I guess I got lucky. Because my first installed app is one I love. Since than I have tried a few others for giggles but none compare. I really had to weigh all the apps on my phone and really decide what one to do my second review on. I picked this one because it works great, links up online which always means easier management and it has many cool features.

What do I like the most? It’s database. It is huge. From general items to specific items you can search for them or you can use the bar code scanner. If by chance you can’t  find what you are looking for or you don’t agree with the nutritional information that it comes up with you can even make your own entry to the database. This means that if you have  a favorite family dish that you like to make you can add it in. For those of us cooking at home, watching our calories and intake and taking the time to prepare it yourself this in an invaluable tool.

I have tried other counter apps and they tend to be too complicated or too simple. Another thing that makes this so great is the fact that it is really easy to adjust the portion size to how much you ate. From recommended portion sizes to custom amounts by ounce.

Yet another great feature is the fact that if you want you can track your exercise along with it see how that matches up with your calorie intake. This is very useful in having a good picture of how you are doing overall.

In the end I would highly recommend this app. It is free, works great and has no real draw backs. Hard to beat that.

My "personal" excitement level (via God’s Greasy Hands)


A great short blog about a new auto ministry. It is worth the read and the follow for sure

This ministry is certainly not about me. In fact I don't even want my name to be in here. That does not mean I can be excited. Because I really am and I want to share that with you. But what it is really about is helping other people, making a difference in their lives and being part a part of the foundation in their relationship with God. Helping to maintain and repair the vehicles of fixed/low income families is how we plan to do that. We are j … Read More

CardioTrainer by WorkSmart Labs Inc


cardio trainer
First off let’s line out the basics.
What do we all want to know?
Cost-basic is free, with the ability to upgrade to a full trainer mode as well as a race mode
Add-ons-Move your bot game, and Race yourself and a calorie tracker.
Facebook compatible Yes, status posts and profile box
Twitter compatible-Yep, that too.

What does it do? Well it basically tracks your workouts. It uses both GPS and a pedometer so for those of you always running down your battery you can save it if you need to. It also calculates your calorie burn and lets you enter your weight to keep it accurate. The map feature is really great. I really enjoy being able to see where I have gone and share it with others.

Another good feature is music integration. It will start automatically if you choose or you can turn it on when you start the workout.

It also connects with google health as well as Facebook and twitter so no matter what social network you like it will do it. Unless you still use myspace but then if you do you probably don’t have a smart phone either. Cause that is so 2000.

They are constantly updating the app and making it work better. That is always a plus. They recently updated it to work with a blue tooth heart monitor. This is really neat. I don’t have the money to buy the monitor, and so will have to stick with using the one I have that feeds to my watch but that is a great feature.

I don’t use the add-ons. For counting calories their system is to basic and I don’t care for it. I use Calorie Counter instead. And the other add-ons are more to kinda take up time and I don’t have enough of that as it is.

Overall I would rate this app 4/5 droids. If the calorie counter was as good as the one I use it would be 5 for sure.
