How to Weigh Yourself Properly!

LMAO Okay okay so I think we all know that it really isn't the right way to get a good measurement but it is pretty funny. The human body can fluctuate every day in weigh several pounds so some times it can be discouraging to step on the scale. Here is the best tips for making sure your results are as accurate as possible.
1.Weigh yourself naked ;o) yep I said it. Clothing however can weigh up to 5 pounds if you are wearing shoes. If you don't feel comfortable naked then make sure you are wearing the same thing every time.
2.Always weigh yourself first thing in the morning. Weighing before you eat or drink is the best weigh to make sure you are at the same level as the time before. If one week you weigh yourself in the morning before eating and the next you weigh yourself in the evening after several meals, of course you will weigh more.

Remember it is nearly impossible to gain a pound in one day. You would have to eat 3500 calories MORE then you usually do and well most of us will NEVER do that :O) don't get discouraged by the number on the scale it is just a reference. As you workout you may in fact gain weight while getting smaller Muscle weighs more then fat.
Which would you rather have????

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
