Stay Healthy & Fit in the New Year With Best Buy

Almost all of us do it, make New Years Resolutions. Like many Americans though I often fail within the first month. I have been told do something for 21 days and it becomes a habit. So this year I was bound and determined to make it those first 21 days. If I could make it those 21 days I decided I would reward myself by picking up some of those favorite items that I always wanted but never bought because, well I'm a realist and knew I wasn't ready to truly get healthy and fit. This year is different, whether it is turning 30 or some peer pressure it is going amazing and I get my prize!
While looking through Best Bust I realized they had so much more then just things for entertainment. I have always wanted a juicer, yeah I know kind of silly but think about it with all the things that are put into our foods these days what could be a better investment for the health of me and my family the a great juicer! The Cuisinart Pulp Control Citrus Juicer really caught my eye with it's adjustable reamer I can control how much pulp I get in my cup. So I can juice with heavy pulp for my husband*gag* or I can go nearly pulp free for myself and the children. After all we all know the best way to keep a man happy is through his stomach right ;O). As a bonus feature the parts are also dishwasher safe! Which if you hate doing dishes as much as I do before leaving for work or even after a hard days work THIS is one of the best features a product could have. I've had my eye on two other things this year but I feel I should probably pick out one of them.lol The BodyMedia FIT CORE Armband is a great fitness tool that I saw on TV. It hooks up to your computer and you put it on daily to record every aspect of your healthy fitness routine........or not so healthy really if you are just beginning. It allows you to track you progress as you work to a healthier you. Bonus about the BodyMedia FIT CORE Armband is it is on sale right now for $99 PLUS FREE SHIPPING! My only concern is how well it tracks your actual distance??? Or does it.....so I am looking into another device as well. The NIKE+SportWatch GPS is powered by TOM TOM and working with a device for your show it records with GPS technology EXACTLY how much you travel. So I have to wonder if you were me which one one would you chose??

The Nike GPS watch is exactly what I need! Whenever I go jogging I am always wondering how far I have made it and what I accomplished for the day. Seems like a really nifty little gadget!

I have been researching the bands lately as well, there are so many choices. I will definitely have to decide so I can use the 20% off coupon, I love Best Buy, when I buy something from them, they never act as though I am a complete idiot when I need instructions on how to use it.

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.
