Lose It!

Probably the most important part of losing weight is calorie consumption. However,
counting calories can be hard to do on a daily basis. Lose It! performs all of the
calorie calculations for foods you consume and how much work you’ll have to do
to burn those calories. Better yet, Lose It! allows you to hold your smartphone up
the barcode on a food package to get its calories. You can even tap the screen at the
beginning and end of a walk to see how much you’ve burned. To get exactly how
many calories you should consume daily to get to where you want to be, simply
enter your goal weight, current age, height and weight, and that’s it.

Cost: Free

Genetic disorders and testing
 

Is ignorance bliss when it comes to your health? Wouldn’t we all like to know about more about our genes and your overall genetic health? So how do these genetic health tests help you take better control over your health? There are various genetic predisposition tests around and some of the more thorough ones test for up to twenty eight different illnesses. Here are just a few of the ones people are most aware of.

Diabetes: It would help to Know

Healthy living begins early in life. Prevention is far better than cure; a genetic predisposition test will inform you of the genetic illnesses you may develop later in life. Now knowing you are predisposed to diabetes means you may be aggravating the chances of developing the “silent killer” consistently indulging in the wrong foods and getting used to a diet which could, ultimately, precipitate the illness.

Water Filtration with Aqua Vessel Water Filter Bottle

Aqua Vessel Water Filter Bottles from Eco Vessel

 

I have always been a big water drinker.  I’ve never been much of a fan of soda.  One of my greatest joys is bottled water.  However, bottled water is sooo bad for the environment.  I mean, all those bottles have to go somewhere.  Plus, buying a couple bottles of water a day starts to add up.  A water filter bottle is a great alternative. 

Water filter bottles have been around for a while, but it’s really just been in the last couple of years that they’ve gained in popularity.  Prior to this time, you almost had to go to a hard-core camping supply store or even a survivalist catalog to get your hands on one. 

Those days are no longer!  You can find water filter bottles in mainstream stores and catalogs now.  Eco Vessel has a line of water filter bottles called Aqua Vessel.  Aqua Vessel bottles are stainless steel bottles that come in fashion colors.  Better than that, though, these bottles can filter up to 100 gallons of water!    That means that the 17 oz bottles can be filled 753 times before the filter needs to be replaced.  How awesome is that?  I say very.

Matilda’s Postcards for the Wounded Warrior Project

Matilda's Postcard Project For Wounded Warriors

Stacy from Couponing with Boys shared this on Facebook and I thought, “Hey, this is kind of awesome!”  Matilda, an 8 year old from CT, is trying to raise money for the Wounded Warriors program.  Her plan is to get people to send her postcards.  She wants to donate $0.25 from her allowance for each postcard that she receives.   Matilda’s Postcards Project goal is 100 postcards in 4 months. 

Stacy’s idea, which I think is totally awesome, is to send the postcard in an envelope with the $0.25.  Because, hey, almost everyone has a quarter they can pass along.  And the number of postcards that could come in will bankrupt a well-meaning 3rd grader. 

Are you interested in helping Matilda out?  Of course you are!!  You can send your postcard to:

Matilda’s Postcards Project
PO Box 16
Vernon, CT 06066-4529

The Wounded Warrior Project is an organization that aids service members returning from war . 

Matilda loves learning about new places, too.  So, if you could send her a postcard that had facts about your area, she'd love that!

No Jail – No Problems

Get Out of Jail Free card

I’ve always been a major Monopoly fan.  I don’t know how or why it started, but I have always loved that game.  I know it started at an early age, and all I can come up with is that when I was 4 or 5, I had a babysitter that used to let us play Monopoly all day long.  I mean, I suppose that’s one way to keep the kids occupied, right? 

I’ve often wondered what I’d do if I had a real “Get Out of Jail Free” card. I suppose that it would depend if it was for one time use or if it was more like a superpower, where I never had to go to jail.  Because, c’mon!  If it was a one-time use, you’d have to be really choosy.
