What’s New on SLPerryman.com and What’s to Come

Over the last week I have been working on this site adding new content.

If you look in the menu section you will see a few new additions to the site. My goal is to continue adding new content to the site over the next month or so.

So what’s New?

Aspiring Authors– I was an aspiring author not too long ago. I understand the confusion and unbelievable amount of information you have to learn when first starting out. I created this page to compile all of the information and resources I have found useful into one easily accessible place for anybody who aspires to someday become a published author.

Downloads– This page is a sub-page for aspiring authors. Here you will find handy printables to help you on your journey to publication. You will find everything from fill-in-the-blank Outline Sheets for your next project to help make your ideas flow smoothly, to checklists, and even printable Book Promotion Site Lists. I will continue adding new printables to the page as time goes on so check back regularly or sign up to my email list to be notified when there are updates made.

Winners Circle– This page is dedicated to my giveaways and the winners of the giveaways. Each time I host a giveaway I will post an announcement on the welcome page, blog, as well as in the Winners Circle. If I have multiple giveaways going at the same time they will all be listed in the Winners Circle together.

Store- You will notice that the store tab has moved but is still live so if you want to make purchases you still can.*

*More things to come.

What’s to come?

Realms Merchandise-Very soon you will be able to purchase The Realms Series apparel. I am working on getting some Realms Creature Plushies made as well as some surprises. More on that at a later date.

Free Book when you sign up to my mailing list offer– Very soon I will be offering a Free eBook when you subscribe to my mailing list. If you are already subscribed you will automatically receive the free book when it goes live.

Print and Audio book availability– In the next few months Sapphire’s Destiny will be available to purchase in audio book and paperback formats through the Store. Keep your eye out for the announcement.

Book Promotion Newsletter– Soon you will be able to sign up to receive special emails with Free or Discounted Book Deals. These emails will be sent out once DAILY with new deals every day. Current Newsletter Subscribers keep and eye on your mailbox for the Launch Announcement.

#chachaslidechallenge: My spring time weight loss plan!

So spring has officially sprung and with the warm weather comes the time to shed all of our winter hibernation weight, you know the 15 or 20 pounds that crept up on you thanks to that amazing Thanksgiving turkey and the endless supply of holiday treats.

You may have looked in the mirror this morning (something that you have avoided doing for quite some time) and though “Dear lord, where did this cellulite come from? Oh my god, is that a double chin?” I get it, I’m in the same boat as you only mine is more like the 50+ pounds I’ve been fighting with for the last 3 years since my son was born.

Loosing weight is probably one of your top 10 new years resolutions, as it most likely has been since you hit puberty and started becoming more aware of the way others look at you, not to mention judge you for it. And yet , here we are 3 months into the year and you have barely noticed even the slightest wavering of the bathroom scale in the right direction.

Same here, only, I have decided to take matters into my own hands and do something about it. Last year I had some luck in the weight management department. I started walking 2 miles a day and doing 30 minutes of Tae Bo twice a week. The scale didn’t drop much but I can at least say that I didn’t gain anything either.

This winter I was less motivated and I hate the cold so I definitely didn’t go outside unless necessary. Instead I relied on house chores and the occasional motivation to participate in the plank challenge.

I have come to realize what they say is true, “the less you do the less motivated you are to do anything”. So this year I have taken a vow and promised myself that no matter what I will do something everyday. No more relying on my metabolism to determine if I will gain any weight or stay a hefty 250 pounds for another month.

With my new mindset, I turned to the most vast knowledge on this planet right now in search of creative ways to stay active. It seems that working out has become quite popular and diverse with new variations of the old favorites.

A plank is no longer boring but has become a fun game where you dance to the Cha Cha Slide and dons the hashtag #chachaslidechallenge and  the Bring Sally Up plank challenge. Squats of old are now done to Dark Horse by Katy Perry.

With so many fun challenges to choose from, I’m sure I will not only loose weight without getting bored, but have fun doing it.

So here is where you guys come in, I want you guys to do this with me. All you have to do is video tape yourself doing the challenges and upload the video to Youtube.com and drop the link in the comments below. If you want to share your weight loss story  you can send those to me at sissy_1990_18@yahoo.com. Be sure to include a before and after photo unless you want to keep your identity confidential.

Have you heard of another awesome weight loss/work out challenge? Post it in the comments and I will check them out, I might even video myself doing them and share them with you.
