I'm a 35 year old mother/wife/steelworker. I love to read, swim, & take photographs. I love spending my time off from work with my husband & two daughters.

I've been on Spark before. Right after my 3 year old daughter was born I joined weight watchers & then found this site. I used both to lose an additional 20 lbs to the weight I lost from having her. Then something happened & tada! I gained it all back. Boo!!!

So here I am again, a fresh start. I've learned a lot since I was here last. I've read about juicing & I've bought a juicer & gave it a try. Surprise, surprise.......I love it! Who knew juicing veggies with a dab of fruit would taste so amazing! I can get veggies in that I never would have touched otherwise. It really is amazing stuff. I just need to do it more & be consistent with it. Even my 3 year old loves it. When she sees me with a glass of it she wants to drink it. I even froze some of it & she ate them up!

I also have a different job then I did when I was here last. Same company, but I am now in an office Mon. - Friday day turns, instead of swing shift out in the mill. Woohoo! It only took 16 years at this place, but boy oh boy am I happy to never have to work a midnight, afternoon, or holiday ever again!

So here's to a fresh start! And to Spark!

    I am so sorry you don't like fish, because it was SO good emoticon

    The only thing about frozen grapes is that it's best to do it with grapes that are sweet. The ones you sometimes buy that are so-so are ... even more so-so from the freezer - as it is with my current batch. emoticon

    Thank you for commenting on my blog, have a great night!

    Level 390?! Wow, your husband's a pro in Candy Crush!

    One day I will have to follow your lead and get that game off my phone. Already I'm saying ridiculous things like "I'll feed the dog after I'm done with this level." Signs of addiction, right?

    Happy Monday!

    Thanks for your comments on my blog and sharing with me. Also, thanks for the note about the green smoothie. I joined the group and will see what else I can learn about it.

    emoticon to the Green Smoothie Lovers Team!
    Drinking green smoothies is the quickest, easiest way to obtain incredible health results. Simply by adding one Green Smoothie to your diet every day will start to bring about amazing positive change in the body. When the body gets the foods it needs, it can heal itself. Green Smoothies are fast and extremely easy to make. No matter what your schedule is, you can manage making a Green Smoothie. From start to finish, it takes less than 5 to 10 minutes depending on the smoothie you make, and that includes cleaning up!
