Friday is Mega Swag Bucks Day

If you don’t use Swagbucks, you need to check it out!  Especially on Fridays where you can get as many as 100 points for a search!

Swagbucks is a search engine, powered by Google, that gives you points for searching the internet. Just use it like you would Google or Bing, but you earn points for seaches. After you have banked enough points, you can trade them in for free items! Plus, they often offer special Swag Codes for additional points as well, so it’s not hard to rack up enough points to redeem often!

Check out my post here on how to maximize your Swagbucks!

With Swagbucks you can earn gift cards (my personal favorite) and other rewards just by searching the internet. IPods, LCD televisions, and IPhones are some of the more fun items in the Swag Store.  It’s only 450 swag points to get a $5 Amazon gift card- you can be saving those for the holidays!

Plus, if you use this link here you earn Swag Bucks just for signing up!

A Chick’s Opinion: Wii Play Motion

I got a nice surprise in the mail last week- a new Wii game to try out!   The Wii Play Motion game comes with a black Wii remote so now I had two remotes!  Time to get a friend to come help me test out the games.  So I invited a more Wii proficient friend to try out all 12 games featured on this one disk!

The twelves games are:

1- Cone Zone – you use your balance to build a tall ice cream cone.  I only played this one once. 

2- Veggie Garden- this game is completely addicting.  Remember whack-a-mole from when you were a kid?  This is a chance to relive your childhood.  I LOVED it.

3- Skip Skimmer – This one is tied for my favorite game- you skip stones across a lake. But once you get 50 points the stones change- some of them make different noises and do interesting things.  SOOO much fun!  

4- Pose Mii Plus- only played this one once as well.  It’s sort of like that TV show “Hole In The Wall.”

5- Trigger Twist- this one is tied for my favorite.  You get to save the little Mii characters from ninjas, spaceships and dinosaurs.  I think we played this one the most! 

6- Jump Park- this one confused me, but people who are more into gaming will enjoy it.  My friend did much better than I did!  It involved the Mii jumping towards targets and other items.

7- Teeter Targets- this one had the feeling of old school video games.  Lots of fun- you hold the Wii remote sideways to control a wooden teeter totter to bounce a wooden ball around the screen. 

8- Spooky Search- people on-line loved this game and it drove us crazy.  It’s basically like “Ghostbusters”- you are trying to catch the ghost and put him in a box.  I think at this point we were anxious to get back to rock skipping so we just played it once and moved on.

9- Wind Runner- LOVED this one too.  You hold your Wii remote like it’s an umbrella handle and then let the wind blow you through a course.   Had sort of a Mario Kart feel.

10- Treasure Twirl-  This one reminded me so much of Mario swimming under water except with amazing graphics. You lower your Mii as a deep-sea diver by continuously twirling the remote (as if you’re unspooling a line) and try to pull up a treasure chest. You can swing your Mii left and right as you’re descending to pick up oxygen and avoid stringing jellyfish.

11- Flutter Fly- this game drove me crazy.  You hold the remote straight up like a fan, and fan some balloons through an obstacle course. I kept popping the balloon but again, someone with more Wii skill would probably do great.  Plus as I practice I know I will get better!  

12- Star Shuttle-  I have to be honest- we couldn’t figure it out.  After a few attempts we went back to the other games we enjoyed. You control a spaceship to dock with a space station- we kept going out of orbit and blowing up.

This game is alot of fun and has something for everyone.  Four of the games can be played by four players and all of them had atleast a 2 player mode.  I can easily picture each person in a family having their favorite game that they excel at.  The skill levels varied alot so I think a variety of ages would enjoy and excel at different parts.

Once my schedule settles down I will be taking it to friends’ houses so we can try the four player level!  I can’t wait!

If you want to check out all the details and see what other people think click here to check out the game!

CrossFit Chesapeake and Eating Healthy On A Budget 6/9

Tonight I ate the last piece of pizza I am going to eat for a while.  And I am very excited about it.

Today I began a partnership with a fantastic organization in Chesapeake, VA, CrossFit Chesapeake.  I have always been fascinated by the idea of CrossFit and going to their facility today it was obvious to see the differences from a traditional gym.  I didn’t see a stairmaster or spinning bike.  There are no bright colors or flourescent lights.   But I saw lots of weights, BIG weights.  And a family who is passionate about people live healthy for the rest of their lives.

You will see the name Wilkes on their website alot- that’s because CrossFit Chesapeake is family owned and operated.  From talking to Chris “Coach” Wilkes today he knows his stuff about nutrition.  And that’s exactly what I was looking for- because while I will be working out with these guys and attempting to lose weight that isn’t my primary goal.

I hear people tell me all the time that it isn’t possible to eat healthy on a budget- that all coupons are for processed food.  That just isn’t true.  So whether it is using coupons, stocking up when things are on sale or finding things online at discounted prices I am going to try to add posts with healthier options for you and your family. Coach is going to teach me about eating healthy so I can prove it can be done.

So periodically you will see CrossFit Chesapeake pop up on A Frugal Chick’s facebook page.  I will share deals on healthy foods that I find both in the stores and online- especially products that I don’t know much about.  As I learn how to use them I will let you know. 

I will probably complain a LITTLE bit about some sore muscles.  

And hopefully as you watch me on WVEC on Sunday mornings (for those of you in Hampton Roads) you will see there is a little less of me every week.  And I will share (on the facebook page) when I have successes in weight loss.

If you don’t want to know about eating healthy food don’t worry- I will bring you the same deals I always have.  What you eat is your decision, not mine.  But I want to give my readers the options to make healthy choices and still have the option of “Living Well Without Going Broke.”

So wish me luck- I begin at 6:30 tomorrow morning!

By the way if you want to come and work out with me CrossFit Chesapeake offers a week free to try it out!  If you like what you hear from me you can check it out with no cost or obligation!  Just check their website for details!
