WorkIt Wednesday : Announcing...

Hello Neighbors!

Here is the news I have promised to announce this Wednesday...

My two sisters (H. and M.) and I are participating in the SGMA Hall of Fame 5K Run!

SGMA Hall of Fame 5K

Okay, so we play all sorts of sports (volleyball, racquetball, etc.), take TaeKwonDo, etc., but we haven't done a whole lot of running.  Just about two weeks ago the three of us saw this and decided to sign up and start training.  

Current Sponsors :
  • FlipBelt
  • runninGluv
  • FitSok
  • LaceLockers
  • BolderBands
  • Words to Sweat By
  • Ozeri
  • MaxFlow Sports
  • TrailHeads
  • Modest Poppy
  • BottleBand
Okay, so now I'll tell you a little bit about our training.  Five days a week the three of us head out for a run.  We started out with intervals of 1 minute run, 1 minute walk, etc. and have slowly upped it.  We have had a couple of cooler mornings, but other than that it has been pretty hot.  We come back dripping with sweat, and threaten mom with hugs.  :)

Here are a couple products that have been really nice to have during training...

The Ozeri Pedometer has been really helpful.  It not only counts steps, but mileage, time, calories, etc.  It counts the steps pretty accurately and it comes with a belt clip to clip unto a belt or waistband.

Another sponsor's product/s that have been great is FitSok's sports socks that they sent.  I received two packs of socks, and have had several pairs "borrowed" by my sisters.

FlipBelt is a must have for any walker/runner.  It is a belt that has a single tubular pocket with four openings (two in the front and two in the back).  It is really nice to stick a phone, mp3 player, cash, etc. into the pockets and know that everything is safe.

MaxFlowSports sent me a pair of Low Show Women's Performance Socks, and a Cross-Grip Hairband.  I have to tell you.  The first day we used these, one sister took the pair of socks, and one sister took the headband.  My little sister (M) is loving the headband for any sports we do.

I'll be back next WorkIt Wednesday with more products that I have been using for training, as well as a review or two!  See you At the Fence!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important. If you’re moving abroad soon, or think that it’s something that you’d like to do in the future, then here are ten things that you need to do before you start your new life. 1.
