Trying to do right
Thursday, November 19, 2009      4 comments

Well, I know I should probably give myself more time, but I'm feeling really frustrated that I can't seem to be motivated to eat or exercise right since I've been back. I am exercising, but not as much as I was. About half of what I was doing.... Read more

As I was sitting here at the computer tracking what I ate today, I glanced up and caught a sweet sight. My dear husband is in the front yard playing catch with my fifth child, the youngest of the three girls. The older four have all done extre... Read more

I'm waiting patiently. Really, I am. Okay, maybe not. I did have one of my previously mentioned dilemmas solved. A dear friend of mine had a few extra swimsuits that still had the tags on them tucked away. Not only do they fit, I was able t... Read more

This blog post is just a chuckle for me. My oldest DD is starting to join into the healthy living lifestyle with me. She really doesn't have that much to lose, but wants to lose a little. This morning we did our weigh in...we weighed the exac... Read more

I know this may not be exciting to most or even any of you, however, it is to me. With a family our size, going on a real vacation doesn't come every year. But this is the year for us! We are going to be spending two whole weeks in Florida. ... Read more

After a long day of business, I knew I needed to walk. However, it's raining in our part of the country. So, I did the next best thing...the Five Mile Walk at Home DVD. My DH and DD even did it with me and I feel GREAT. I'll sleep very well ... Read more

I'm sure some one out there has had a child or two, maybe even three, that seems to want to get into EVERYTHING. My almost 18-month DS is one of those precious children. Oh, to remain calm each time I have I to say, "NO!" would be a blessing. ... Read more

A little flavor to your water
Sunday, October 18, 2009      1 comments

I know that straight up water is the best, but sometimes I like to add a little flavor to it. It helps me keep away from sweets. I just bought Ocean Spray Cran-Peach drink crystals. If you like peach flavor at all, this kicks it up a bit and ... Read more
