Get Your (Diet) Bets In

diet bet.  i've started a diet bet for the month of september.  the concept is easy - you pay in $10 and submit your weight on september 1 (sunday.)  the bet lasts 28 days and whoever loses 4% of their weight at the end gets to split the pot.  for me, it's (i think) 7 lbs.  i need to do the math still.  but the stats are your own - i, nor any other players, can see your numbers if you don't want us to, don't worry.  and you'll see, there's measures in place to ensure no cheating!  the great thing about diet bet is that, if we all win, they forfeit their cut so as long as you lose your 4%, you will at least get your $10 back.  if you think you can lose the 4%, then there's no downside!  sign up now.

link up tomorrow!  (it goes live friday at 7 pm central time)  don't forget that betsy and i are hosting a linkup at the end of each month related to your goals progress.  it's the last saturday of every month - which happens to be this saturday because holy crap it's about to be september - and you can link up anything related to working on your goals.  for us, it's our progress on our 101 in 1001 lists.  but it can also be bucket lists, weekly goals, 30 before 30 lists, anything you want to write about to keep yourself motivated!  the link up is live for 1 week so post any time.

my new camera came.  the sony nex 5n.  i definitely wanted to get rid of my old camera, so i sold that on ebay and i was looking for something a little more lightweight and thinner.  i settled on the sony nex 5n from a store on amazon with a great return policy.  i'm still undecided on the actual camera.  i love the size and the features but i'm still torn on the image quality since there's no built in flash or image stabilization.  i'm going to test it out a few more times though and see if i really love it or want to try something else.  any tips or suggestions if you have it or have something else you adore?

i'm moved in!  megan came by to help me finish the last few things.  and by finish i mean we moved the last of the wine glasses and then drank out of them.  the cable is the only thing not working, but i honestly just watch everything online anyway.  and the internet is working, which, let's be honest, is what really matters.  and it's not just moving furniture and boxes, it's setting everything up too, it's all done!  i'm particularly proud of my closet, i did awesome.  pictures to follow next week some time.

ok that's 4 not 5.  give me a break, i just moved!
