Not All Programs Work For All People

I have felt all week like such a failure as I just continue to gain and get sicker on this program I am doing. By everything I have learned in school and through reading it really should be the perfect program. I have been really down on myself telling myself it must be something I am doing wrong. Going over every calculation over and over again to see what I am doing wrong. I think I just need to accept the fact that not every program works for every body. Dustin has designed a great program and support system with his Mommy Bloggers Weightloss Challenge. I just don't fit the typical mold. As I continue on my path to health and physical fitness I will share with you any ideas I may come across. I hope some can help you but like me remember every body is different and you  will probably have to try different things before finding something that works for you. Most importantly just never give up! While I may not be able to follow the program set forth by the Mommy Blogger Weightloss Challenge because of my health I have found a great band of women to travel the journey together with and you never know maybe another fitness program on Fit Moms will work for me. I certainly loved the book and found it very motivational :O)

You definitly have to find the right program for you and your body! I tried one over the summer that was great nutritionally but it had no support. I am going to try out Weight Watchers again and see if I can get what I need from their support group setting. Pick and choose right?

It is hard to find something that just clicks. I did my own program with exercise and measuring food. I worked for me but did not work for my daughter. Good luck in your endeavors.

Don't give up! I tried quite a few before I found Weight Watchers & that one worked great!

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.
