Half Way There EA Sports Active Update

Today is day 15 of my EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge!!! I took two rest days yesterday and the day before. Today I did a medium intensity workout but my heart couldn’t handle the running, so I skipped the medium and long running sessions which took my calories to be burned lower than expected. Not sure  you read this but my blood pressure was 140/100 or something like that .. I believe the higher number is above the lower number, right? Basically those are the two numbers and to be honest with you ever since I have had my boys it’s been a fight with high blood pressure. Prior to having my two sons I had what doctors told me to be the blood pressure of an athlete so hopefully exercising, paying attention to what I eat and increasing my water consumption will help alleviate this high blood pressure issue!

Review Busytown Mysteries

Busytown_LogoAs a child I recall seeing the books from Busytown Mysteries, I am uncertain if I ever really watched the cartoon on television, however, when the One2One Network asked if I would review this DVD I accepted because Busytown Mysteries introduces children to deductive reasoning skills; who, what, when, where, why?

As a young child I enjoyed reporting on various events and turning them into a mystery type of story. I can only hope Busytown Mysteries will pass my love of creating and solving mysteries down to my three children. This morning I sat on my couch in between my three children and watched the DVD sent to me for review and I loved watching my 7 and 3 year old interact with Busytown Mysteries to help solve the mystery of the falling cherries!


Some key points regarding Busytown Mysteries:

  • Richard Scarry’s books have sold over 150 million copies and have been translated into 30 languages over the last 40 years.
  • Busytown Mysteries can be watched on CBS weekend mornings, here is a schedule for Busytown Mysteries on CBS.
  • Busytown entertains and educates children from home anytime with their Busytown Mysteries website.
  • Busytown Mysteries is a half hour program on CBS but includes two 11 minute episodes, which is great for the young ones who don’t really have a long term attention span (like my AJ).

You can purchase a variety of Busytown Mysteries on Amazon, but first check out the Busytown Mysteries website and check out all that Busytown can offer your child.

Make it a Happy Day!

Disclosure: I received a DVD copy of Busytown Mysteries to allow for an unbiased, personal opinion about Busytown Mysteries from the One2One Network. All opinions set forth of those of my own based on my families personal interactions with Busytown Mysteries on DVD.

Yesterdays Searches

I decided to hop on and check my Get Clicky traffic stats and well the searches were normal with the words Happily Blended but then the other two were weird .. someone searching for the following and “brandy’s children” I mean really? Is someone searching for my children? LOL

Brandy is a common name but odd that it is so common the person still ended up on my blog …. here they are:

diaperboy wrestling in diapers

brandys children

Well …. they are not as bad as some I have seen over at MomDot!

Day 12 & 13 EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge

Today is Day 13 of my EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge and I am starting to feel great! Not only is the workout toning my arms and legs but it’s boosting my happiness. I am feeling great about myself and great that my children are a part of my daily workouts, this teaches them that exercise is an important part of your daily routine!

So yesterday I decided to switch it up a notch and go from low intensity workout to medium intensity and wow did I sweat! I didn’t run out of breath but I definitely enjoyed the workout a lot more than the low intensity as I could feel the muscles working hard! Although I am glad I worked out before my shower because I seriously did some sweating!

Today is day 13 and it’s my rest day, and I feel I deserve it after three days of hard work outs! I had a blast and I can’t wait to get back on the EA Sports Active tomorrow! I lost 3lbs, not much but hey I don’t plan to lose a whole lot on the scale since I am taking fat and turning it into muscle! Took body measurements on Day 10 so hopefully in a week I will have some updates with inches lost!

Day 12 Workout
