Pound for Pound Challenge

I'm a pretty big television dork! You'd probably be surprised to learn that it's not even on right now!
But anyway, one Tuesday night last December there was nothing else on and so I got caught up in the season finale of The Biggest Loser. I'd caught bits and pieces of it on and off throughout its previous seasons but that night I just got sucked in. It's inspiring to see what these people can do in such a short amount of time. Of course, I realize that working out becomes they're full time job while they're on "campus" and when they return home they have a difficult time balancing all their other life commitments with the desire (or addiction) to working out during all their spare time.

So my point isn't to talk about the most recent show I watched or tell you that I started working out because of it. Simply I want to tell you about the Pound for Pound Challenge. If I saw you over the holidays then I'm sure I told you about it.

All you do is sign up at this website and then go back anytime from April 1 to May 5 to report your weight loss. You may not be trying to lose any weight or even need to but just say that you lost 1 lb and General Mills will donate 1 lb of food, up to 5 MILLION lbs of food! So just spend 5 minutes of your day signing up and 5 minutes in 3 months and you'll have helped at least one person eat for the day. Why wouldn't you want to do it?! If you do sign up and don't think you'll remember to go back and between April and May shoot me an email and I'll remind you!

Oh, and how about this for every pound you, my friends lose* I'll match the donation that General Mills would make! Just leave a comment or send me an email letting me know that you plan to work to lose weight (or should I say, get healthier) during this time and then let me know how you did in April or May.*For real weight loss, because I don't have the money that General Mills does!

What an exciting, much anticipated day yesterday was! And that was just the beginning...

I'm proud to have a President that I voted for sitting in office, even if he's in the office with his jacket off!

I'm hopeful he, and this time, will bring about a progression of America that is much needed. He has a lot on his plate and the biggest thing is pulling us out of this economic crisis. I read a great letter from Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman in Rolling Stone. Check it out here:

look ma *both* hands

And I'm off, I'm blogging!
Or at least claiming some sort of variation of the blog address I wanted.

That's all.

And now here's more...

So I've been putting of getting a more grown up email address for a while, as well as the inevitable switch to gmail. Here it finally is, of course I've put it off so long that I couldn't get either of the address I really wanted, kate711 or katerees. So there was a merging of the two and wallah, katerees711.

Of course, with a new email address should come a new blog. I also ran into a wall with taking y first choice of addresses, thank goodness for that 711 for being my back up. One that I might actually write in. It's not as if I have a lack of things to mindlessly post about... as you will hopefully see in the coming days!
