The Biggest Loser

Five girls.
One house.
Skinny, sexy, bodies.
It happened late last night. The roomies and I were sitting around and decided to embark on the journey of the biggest loser (seeing that we all have a few pounds that need to be shed). Since we are all very competitive people we agreed to make a competition out of it. Everyone put $50 in. I know this seems like a lot of money for a student, and that is because it is. However, we all agreed that to really get our butts in shape there has to be something to lose...and an even something bigger to gain. So this morning we had weigh ins...let's just say that that has not been the highlight of my day :( I am determined to win this competition, and in order to do so I will be doing two-a-days at the gym, and am following a strict diet. I will win this competition, so everyone needs to keep checking in on me to keep me in line. haha I will keep you posted...

Heating Blanket

So the biggest down fall of living in Salt Lake is definately the winter season. Let's just say that it is freezing! However, we are always trying to save a penny here and there, so we are yet to turn on the heat. This has made my nights pretty unbearable seeing that I never can get my feet warm. One night I even had six blankets on my bed and I still could not warm them up. The next day, just as I was I was thinking there was no hope to keep cozy this winter, my roomie Marci brought home a heating blanket. This is the BEST item that anyone can ever purchase. Every night now, about an hour before I go jump into bed, I turn the heating blanket on. This makes my bed sooo toasty when I get in... I love it. The only problem is that in the morning I can't seem to get out of bed knowing of the chill that awaits me the second I rip the covers of off my body! For now though, I am just happy to get a good nights rest.
