My New WANT

I'm seriously obsessed with this product. I don't own it and I've never even seen it in person. It's the idea of it I love so much! Whiteboard paint. My college roommate painted a wall of her basement (her game room) with chalkboard paint and it was ingenious.

Dry-Erase paint brings it to a whole other level. I am currently trying to convince my office to let me paint an entire wall with this stuff, I love the idea of being able to jot down concepts and thoughts anywhere I am.

The possibilities for the applications are endless. Can you imagine what it would be like as a kid to be ALLOWED to draw on your walls!!!

Available for purchase at Lowes. All I know is if any of you get this before I do PLEASE let me know how it works. I really want this so bad! I filled out a form for a free sample... fingers crossed I'll get it and let you know how it goes.

Solar Beach Bag


The world's first solar powered beach bag. Juice up gadgets like cell phones and iPods using car charger adapters. The solar panel is even removable so you can use it separately from the bag too! Retails for $250, get it here.

Couch to 5k iPhone App

I have recently completed Week 5 Day 2 of the Couck to 5k training program and I can honestly say that I have never felt better about myself.

The 9 week program is a series of interval workouts that last about 30 minutes (including a 5 minute warm-up and cool-down). It starts off easy alternating 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for 20 minutes. As the weeks go on the intervals get harder and harder. For example on Tuesday I'm running Day 3 of Week 5, I'll be running 20 minutes straight! I've never been able to do anything like that before. That's the thing I really like about this system... it gets you to push yourself.

There are a ton of ways you can approach Couch 2 5k, from charts to playlists. I have found that the iPod application works best for me. The interface is SUPER easy (see below) and I am prompted on when I should jog or walk as I listen to my own playlists.


The app is $2.99 and is 3.2 MB, I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about running or who is looking to spice up their workout. 

I started off running on my treadmill and then graduated to the street (which in my opinion is the best was to run). I have picked up some cool gadgets and tricks along the way which I'll share later on.

Also, as an added bonus each pair of Peeky Toes comes with a free drawstring Eco-Bag, designed by an artist who has autism. It's a perfect fit for flip flops! Love it!
