Weightloss Challenge DAY 3!

Over the last 2 days I have learned so much through this program. A) I am WEAK and I really mean that.lol The lady on the video has only been doing it a while now but where she is using 30 pounds I am lucky to use 7! I always thought of myself as a fairly physical person but sadly it seems that I have not been using my muscles enough. B)Being hypoglycemic on this diet means that I cannot use the low carb option, it just won't be an option for me. The massive headache I had the last 2 days has proved that. C) Eating enough GOOD food is actually HARD whereas most days before this diet I have gone to bed feeling like I am starving. I am really sore after yesterdays workout but look forward to trying to push through it today. I hope today to make it through the cardio program as well :O) it is all about the baby steps in life right?? I have done really good in drinking only water and a bit of milk. I feel like I am already seeing a difference in my waistline.
 If you haven't heard about what I am doing yet it is called the Mommy Bloggers Weightloss Challenge. I encourage you to look into it, it is great for busy moms.

Keep up the great work! Some people never see Day 3 because they don't keep up with the program they start. It's good that you are learning! :)

Nice job! Keep it up, it's hard but it's worth it :)

I'm visiting from Mommy of Two and I wanted to let you know that I just reposted the Twitter Friend Tuesday linky. I plan to repost it each week with the same linky so that whoever is on it will automatically stay. Hopefully that will help you gain more followers!

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.
