There's good news....and bad news.....

Hello!  I've got some projects to post, but just don't have the time to set them up for today......so instead...I'll share some good and bad news.

Good news first!
Yesterday I entered a "Smallest Winner" contest (a take on the Biggest Loser) put on by a friend of friend.  For $100.00, it's a 7-week contest to see who either loses the most body weight percentage or changes their body composition the most.  I entered the body composition contest and yesterday morning I woke up at 6am in order to get to the 6:45am "booty camp" class.  Wow...did she ever kick my booty! But - it was a great work out and I'm glad to have some motivation. (That's not even the GOOD news)........

I had to go back at 11am for the official weigh in.   I weighed myself at home last week and was not happy with the weight that I've allowed to creep up.  So, I was not really looking forward to what the gym's scale said.........but then.........much to my shock................the scale said I was SEVEN pounds LIGHTER then my home scale said!!!!!!  Yahoooo!!!!    So as you can tell.......I'm quite excited by THAT news!!!

But now..........the bad news..........

Because I'm involved with animals and rescue, I was so upset to see that Google/Android has allowed a new app to be offered called "Dog Wars" which is a virtual dog-fighting game. It just disgusts me.  Here is a blog post from Best Friends Animal Society about it - if you want to read further.

If you are disgusted by this - please take a moment and click on THIS link to report an Inappropriate App.  The Application name is "Dog Wars" and the Developer is "Kage Games, LLC"   Thanks!!


Thanks for your visit!

First of all, can I give you a whoop whoop for the news on the scale! That is awesome!! Ps: throw that home scale away...it is a liar! Haha!

I don't even know what to say about the bad news, though. Grrr! Why do people think that is a form of "entertainment"? It is ridiculous! Thank you for providing the links to report the app. I'm in and I will be forwarding the info along, for sure.

Oh Maria, congratulations to you and your wonderful weight loss - you are doing GREAT! That's not an easy feat and just keep on keepin' on and you'll be at your goal in no time :) Wonderful!!

I'm just sickened over the news of the ap - I haven't heard of it and am a big time animal lover - dogs being my weakness (huge blog post on that soon!) but that is just sickening - is there no shame, no integrity? I'll be following up on that and passing it on as well - thank you for enlightening me! I have a 6 year old son who LOVES his Wii and DSI and various games - will be looking out for that specific name and checking things twice!!
