Get Skinny Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given the chance to review a new book by Scott Schmaltz. Scott Schmaltz is a personal trainer who is committed not only the health and fitness but also holds a degree as a nutritional consultant, a certificate as holistic health practitioner, and certificates in rehabilitation. This book was written so he could extend his help to others.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I have read many books about getting healthy and in shape and this by far has been not only the most comprehensive but the easiest to understand and enjoy. It covered everything from the best time to eat to the amount of water and food you should consume. Unlike a lot of books and programs that I have have reviewed this book is not a one size fits all book. While Scott includes a basic menu with specific brand he tells you how to make it your own and still keep it nutritionally equal. He also has a break down for men AND women because as anyone who has tried to lose weight with someone of the opposite sex knows what works for one does NOT work for the other. My favorite part of the book by far those was a chapter over quitting comfort foods. Although I think I use all food as comfort foods, this book has great information of how to eat to live not live too eat.
If you have been trying to get healthy or in shape this book is for you! I have great news Scott has given me the chance to offer this amazing book to one of my readers!If you can't wait till this giveaway is over to make that change in your life his book is now available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.


**I received this book in order to provide a complete and honest review I was in not way obligated to provide a positive review any and all views expressed are that of my own.**

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

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 …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
