last fm! :)


I'm just sitting here jamming. Having WAAAAYYY too much fun! Well there is a site that I LOVE. Because you can sync it with your itunes/ipod and you can see how much you listen to each song. And it does it by week/month/year/overall. So you can see what music really hits you. Sometimes it surprises me! I always think I listen to something more or less!
check it!  LAST FM

band to check out, Man On Earth

hey guys! I don't know about you, but bands love me! HAHAHAHAH!! no really, they kinda  do. I just put a vibe into the universe and they find me. They KNOW I love them. They know i NEED them. So they find me... .usually on twitter.  And I will follow any band that follows me. Because you never know what you will find.  There are some great bands out there that no one has ever heard of!!

Well the other day, a band followed me Man On Earth. And after they said they played Gibson Les Paul guitars (my favorite kind! 90% of the bands I listen to play Gibson. My ears love that sound) I decided I better go listen to the music. Well I did. And it was good stuff!!!!! :)
So I decided to share.
It's a good mix of rock/pop/alternative  very radio friendly. They could have a real career one day if the doors open for them. :)

Check it out!!   :)

Spark People-- calorie tracker

well if you can't tell, i'm in full swing of counting calories and trying to lose weight. Don't get me wrong, I'm ALWAYS counting calories..... but after a friend of mine on twitter, Carly, mentioned it, I figured a calorie tracker can't hurt. She told me about the site/app Spark People  where you can track calories, fitness, and make weight loss goals.
It is nice to see them so you know what you have left for the day to eat.  I usually would add all day trying to remember stuff.  This is a bit easier!!!
And the website has a lot of recipes as well to help you keep on track.  Which I find helpful. Because you can go to the store and buy this healthy food... and then you're like "uh.... what to do with it!!!!!" I can be creative..but for some reason not with food! hahaha!

Welll I hope you like it if you try it out!! :)

150 calories! In a PINT??? say wwhhaat?


My sister told me about this great stuff she got to try from her blog  as a review. Well she had some left over and told me to try it.  It's an ice cream (susbtitute, we shall say, because it's dairy free for those lactose intolerant folks) but tastes like a really frozen version of ice cream. It's called Arctic Zero  and it has only 150 CALORIES in a whole pint. Yes, that's correct. The entire pint is 150 calories. Not the serving.... the serving size is actually 37 calories! hahaha! :) How awesome is that!?!?!?!?

Well I tried Pumpkin Spice and it was good!! i"m actually still eating it as I write this! :) Its refreshing and FULL of flavor. Imagine a pumpkin spice latte.....but cold (and without the caffeine! hahaha) Anyway. totally good!!! I was impressed.  Because I know healthy food isn't always delicious as the unhealthy stuff. (or we would all be skinny....) But it really is good!
I was impressed. So i thought I'd tell all of you :)

And if you want to read about the pints and see the other flavors, go here 

Anyway, if you can find it, check it out!!!!

Rockstar Uproar Festival

Hey you guys!!!! I just had a great weekend at Rockstar Uproar  in Bonner Springs, KS.  I saw a total of 13 bands over 10 hours.  I danced. I rocked. I headbanged. I jumped. I SWEATED! hahaha!

it was a great time. I was a little dehydrated toward the end, so some of my rocking was less than when I started.... but I still had a great time. All the bands were really great live.
And plus, the  headliner was Shinedown whom I LOVE so much. They were amazing!!!!

And then there was Godsmack, who I used to listen to all the time, and they BLEW me away!!! what energy. amazing!!!!!!!! I was freaking out. I thought I'd never be able to talk again.

Got to meet the members of Mindset Evolution who were really awesome guys!!! (and cute!) 
 And even met some members of The Wreckage who were also awesome and cute. haha :)
Oh, if you didn't know.... I LOVE musicians. I've made up my mind, I will marry one someday.
Really, this could be the longest blog of all time just telling you about how awesome all the bands were. My advice to you, if it's coming near you. GO!!!!!!!! Here's a link for the tour dates! :)  DATES 


Well I made it home yesterday, and have been hobbling around ever since.  I don't know about you, but when i go to concerts, I go to have a great time. I rock hard! So when I come home, my calf muscles always hate me. I think it's because I jump on my tippy toes... and those calf muscles gets WAY too much of a workout. So at times I walk like i'm 90 years old. But it's ok. It'll be better in a day or two.

Alright. I just wanted to tell you how amazing it was!
OOH OOH!!!!! I forgot to mention how much I love Rockstar! They had a tent where you could get FREE ROCKSTAR DRINKS!!!  How awesome is that?!?!?!?!?!?! I had like 3. hehe And they have this new one that was Blueberry Pomegranate. WOW that was delicious!!!

AND Matador Beef Jerky was giving away free samples as well!!!!! THANK YOU!!! I felt like God was smiling down upon me! hehe :)

Overall it was an amazing experience. And I would do it again, in a heartbeat! (well with more water and maybe a little more sitting. hahaha)

Netflix you blessed thing.

I just want to say how much I love Netflix. My friend got wifi at her house where I babysit her almost 1 year old daughter.
But I've spent the day watching "to gabba gabba" , "supernatural" , and south park. :)

Definitely can't complain. Haha they have so many good shows on instant watch and on DVD.
They will never lose a customer out of me. :)

Have a good day!!!!

Burn 100 Calories NOW!


If you read my post yesterday, you know I was looking for a way to burn some calories that wouldn't hurt my knees too bad.  Well I was on pinterest like most of the day yesterday.. i was SO bored!!! And ended up stumbling upon this pin on how to Burn 100 Calories .  So I tried it!
It was easy enough to do... took about 10 minutes. and hey! I burnt some calories. Rock on!
I wasn't sure exactly what the "long jump" was so i didn't do it.  If you know what it is do it. If you don't, then substitute it for something else or leave it out. And then do another exercise later to replace it.  Just do what you can :)

Also if you didn't know, it takes 3,500 calories to lose a pound. So if you do this once a day... you can lose almost a pound a month. That doesn't take in any extra exercises you do, or if you are cutting any calories. But every little bit helps right?
And plus, you could always do it once in the morning and once at night.  :)

Weight loss

Hey guys.  I have been wanting to lose weight for years now. And everytime I try, I can lose about 5 lbs and then I gain it right back. Cutting calories just doesn't seem to work that well for me.
And a lot of exercises I can't do, because i have bad arthritis in my knees, so some of the leg exercises i want to do, hurt too bad.  And sometimes I wanna push through the pain, but I've read, that its not a great idea.  I could injure them further.
I also read it's best to make yourself SMALL weight loss goals, so you don't try so hard and when you don't reach your goal, you give up.  So I made my goal 5 lbs in a month. Which I know is do-able.  I just need help getting there.

I 'm going to try to cut back on calories (but that will be hard, since I don't have a job and my roommate does all the grocery shopping and cooking. And she has NO desire whatsoever to eat healthy) and doing some exercises.
So I'm asking if you have any good ideas for dropping a few pounds in a month please let me know!!!!!!
And don't forget I can't BUY anything right now. I don't have any money. (it really sucks. ... hopefully I'll get the job I interviewed for the other day)
And if you could please remember that bending my knees causes extreme pain, so try to find other exercises to do instead.

Really, I know most of us are trying to lose weight. Some of us really need some help!!!!!! So if you can help, please do.

Justin Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me” Video

Justin Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me” Video

ok ok ok.. i know some of you are gonna be like "justin bieber?? are you KIDDING ME???" But really, I swallowed my pride about a year ago and he got me too. hahaha He's not for everyone but ... you know... he's good for the rest of us! haha

Just watched it... and my thoughts are............... Not a bad video. Interesting that he has the dude from Resevoir Dogs as his lover's daddy. hahah! The song is great. I LOVE the song. especially the lyrics. You're missing out if you don't at least listen to them.  Very heartfelt.

And if you DON'T like Bieber.... watch it anyway. hahah He gets his ass kicked at the end. So you can at least enjoy that much ;)
