Today is day one of cutting my calorie consumption back to 1800 per day. I took my friend Magena's advice and waited until today because of my housewarming party and Easter. Between the alcohol, chocolate and junk food, I'm pretty sure the calorie count was astronomical. I love holidays because they give me an excuse to drink mimosas and irish coffees. Oh wait...I consider that appropriate for every weekend day.
Anyhow, today I'd like to share some of the websites I'm addicted to these days. How on earth did I ever live before the internet. Well, really I was only in high school before the internet really started taking hold so maybe I hadn't lived much. But still.
You can create your own customized music station. It allows you to choose the artists you like and then it plays music from those artists AND it picks other songs you might like. I enjoy a wide variety of music from classic rock to alternative to even the occasional country song, and of course there is no radio station that plays all of this music. But on Pandora it's possible. And it's free. And I can even get it on my Blackberry...for free! This is seriously one of the coolest inventions ever!
This may possibly be the best weight loss tool ever...and again it's free. Do you sense a theme here? It tracks goals. You can find calorie counts and keep a food diary. It has message boards for support. It has articles and reference information. Sooooo cool.
Hi my name is Jennifer, and I've become a facebook addict. I had always used myspace, but now I'm ready to dump my myspace account because facebook is so much cooler. I've reconnected with so many people I used to know, some of which I'm glad to see again and some of which I was less thrilled. Even my family members have facebook accounts! However being the socially lazy person that I am, it is an easy way to stay in touch with people with minimal effort. It just better stay free or I'm outta there.
My blog reading is about 10 times more efficient thanks to this website.
The best knitting website ever. You can find patterns, meet people, see what project people have worked on and track everything possible related to your own knitting projects. I haven't spent as much time on this site lately, but once we're finished with the endless unpacking I hope to have more time to spend knitting.
By the way this was my 300th post after about two years of blogging. Crazy!
