Can You Do 7 Minutes for 7 Months?

Seven minutes doens’t sound long until your thighs are on fire. I just downloaded and used the 7 app from Perigee. Here is the specs of this free app.

The goal is to exercise 7 minutes for 7 months. As you do the workouts you unlock new workouts (or you can purchase them for $1.99). You exercise for 30 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds. The game part is you start off with three hearts. Every month you get 3 hearts. When you skip a workout, you lose a heart. If you miss three in a month, you’re score goes back to zero. Here are some of the interesting information:


  • No internet access needed. Work out anytime, anywhere!
  • Play songs from your favorite music app in the background
  • Fitness enthusiasts can do multiple circuits for longer workouts
  • Armband friendly : vibration or voice mode indicates when to switch exercises
  • Beautifully designed for both iPad and iPhone in a single app
  • iCloud sync to keep your progress up-to-date on all your devices
  • The “Learn” tab includes pro tips on how to perform each of the 12 exercises

I Went Hours Without Eating – And Didn’t Even Notice

I went to the New Media Expo last week. I walked a ton.


I barely had time to eat. A smoothie for breakfast and then “lunch” around 7 PM. I often missed lunch, and never even missed it.

Am I suggesting we all starve ourselves? NO!

I just think many times that I eat it because I’m bored or stressed.

There are times when we eat, and we are not hungry. This past week proved to me I can go longer between meals and not die.

I found a couple of articles.

Everybody I know that is losing weight seems to always seem to say the same phrase:

..and I quit drinking (insert soft drink name).

For me I’ve been stuck on Mountain Dew since I met a girl in my teens who drank it like water (and her ENTIRE family did as well). I go on and off the “Dew Wagon.” I’ve had people say they are tired of me talking about mountain dew, so I want to put to rest. I have placed a counter on the right side of the screen.

I just need to quit drinking it. It’s not impossible.

A can is 170 calories, and 20 oz bottle is 290.

A 20 ox bottle five days a week is 5800 calories a month (1.65 lbs )

A 12 oz can five days a week is 3400 calories a month. (almost 1 lb).

If weight loss is calories in vs calories out. I can easily lose a pound a week by cutting out soda/pop.

Here are the articles I talked about today.
