Head over to G-map to find a neat tool.  The G-map tool will allow you to map your run or walk using Google maps (at street level) to figure out the exact distance you travel on your morning run/walk.  It even has a calories burned tool added on.  I found out that the morning walk I take, which I thought was 1 mile long, was actually 1.56 miles.  And here I was thinking I was running 20 minute miles.

Have you guessed yet?  Well if you haven’t here is the answer…

Working out or playing around?

Tomorrow’s post will show you where to find ABSOLUTELY FREE fitness equipment, that you can use for MULTIPLE exercises, while enjoying HIGH-QUALITY family time.  Trust me, you will never find a Solo-flex or Bow-flex that you will enjoy as much as the workout equipment I will show you tomorrow.

IT might even feature video- assuming my digital camera is working properly.

I just had my first bite of vanilla chocolate chip and blueberry ice cream made with sweet perfection sugar substitute. It was delicious. It tasted just like sugar ice creams. Here is what I dropped inside my ice cream maker tonight… (more…)
