DAY#8 of 365- The National Weight Loss Challenge and Saturday Night Ice Skating Party

Today I went to register for the “X-Weighted Challenge” nation wide weight loss challenge, event with a friend.  .

It took place at X-Treme Fitness Gym at Yonge and Dundas.

They gave us a gift bag, containing a measuring tape, granola bar and coupon, portion control fridge magnet, a blue nap sack and a pedometer.

It is a 26 week journey to get into shape and in the end there is 7ooo dollars worth of porizes for the winner!  I am crossing my fingers and I am feeling lucky.

Why don’t you join me if getting back into shape is one of your New Years Resolutions?  Week 1 starts today.

Every Saturday night at the Harbourfront there is free a DJ Skate Nights.

A live DJ plays music until 11pm.  Tonight was a 50 and 60’s dance party theme.  Next week it is house music.

It was so much fun, even though I was on my behind half the night.  It has been almost 20 years since I have skated.  I forgot how much  fun it was.  I rented skates for 5.00 but will buy a pair of my own skates.  And its also a fun exercise!

They even provided free hot chocolate the entire night and that is until Feb 13th.

They also sell other hot beverages out of a vending machine for only 1.00… like coffee, soup, cafe mocha.  Or food and drinks in the indoor cafe which is a great place to take a break, play games, chat with friends and family and warm up.  Or fill up your thermos at home and bring it with you.  The last day to skate is March 5th.

Just remember to dress warm and you will be fine…

It was a fun night and I will go back a few times at least, before the season ends.

I am going skate shopping this week and for some pink laces like I saw one woman had.

The next time I will strap a pillow to me for protection :-) .
