Tuesday Tidbits...Tervis Tumbler, Brrrrr and the Bodybugg

I enjoy drinking water....ice cold water. I have searched high and low for the PERFECT glass. You know, one that is big enough, that will keep my water cold and that I can take with me. The search is OVER!!!! I was given this Tervis Tumbler as a gift and I now want one for each day of the week.....well, maybe at least just one more. It is 24oz., it fits in my car drink holder, it has a lid and it keeps my drinks cold. Did you know that if you drink cold water you will burn more calories? Yep, your body has to work to bring it up to your body temperature so you burn more calories. Drinking water also increases your metabolism. To me, it is a win-win situation. I have seen them at Bed Bath and Beyond and I know you can find them online. They come with a ton of different designs to fit your personality. No, I am not getting paid for this, I just love mine and am sure you will too!!!

How cold will it get? We are at 3 degrees right now and the "arctic air" isn't even supposed to get here until tonight!!! I could never live in Alaska!!!! I can't wait to wear my flip flops again!!!!

Do you watch the Biggest Loser? I just started and found out that THIS is what they have on their arms.....a bodybugg. It is state of the art technology that monitors your calorie intake and the calories that you burn. I immediately wanted one but about fell out of my chair when I saw they were $349!!!! I was telling my sister in law about it and whining that I wouldn't be getting one anytime soon because of the price and she said........"or you could just use common sense and don't put the donut in your mouth because you know it would be more calories than you need". I am so lucky to have the best supportive friends!!! The biotch is going to be mad when we go to the beach this summer and I am no longer wearing my cover up!!!!! Love ya Susie Jo!!!!
I still want a bodybugg but won't get one unless there is a) a rich uncle I am not aware of or b) an executive from the makers of bodybugg actually reads my blog and feels sorry for me and sends me one. .....hey if they send me two, I will think of a cool contest to give the other one away!!!!!

I did not know about cold water burning more calories. I will have to really ice my water down when i drink it. I really don't need another cup around here but if that one is as good as you say I'll have to check into it.

Great Gift Idea

Below are a few examples of photos that I have taken over the years. I can take any photo you have and turn it to black and white and leave a certain item in color. Contact me for pricing information if you are interested. If you live close enough, I can do a photo shoot for you with all of your photos on a cd for YOU to develop!!!
