20 Second Fitness

 It really is just that time in my life where I am thinking about getting old.lol In January I will turn 30 and as much as I love my mother, and hope this is the one post she doesn't read, I don't want to end up looking like her. So I have really got into being more and more healthy and taking better care of myself. If you are like me though you don't want healthy to mean HOURS in the gym. Frankly with 3 children I don't have the time to spend those hours in the gym, so when looking for something that I could fit in I found 20 Second Fitness
Now think about it, no one likes to work out right?!? Well anyone can do 20 seconds of ANYTHING! Surprisingly I got my husband in on this workout routine which is great because well, he is already over 30.lol After a week of using it we are both seeing more energy! Now if you are skeptical like he was let me tell you, while it is only 20 seconds of an activity it does last 4-12 minutes a day. From day one my entire body has had an ache and it is only after 7 days that the ache is starting to become less noticeable and most days it is a CHALLENGE to finish these workouts. You DO feel the burn :O) while I am not yet down any pounds or inches the energy is amazing and this week we hope to start the diet plan that goes along with the workout system.
With Christmas coming that means New Years is sneaking up as well. What is your resolution?? Being healthy and fit is always a good plan.

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.
