Getting Fit and Feeling Great with Ellie!


DSCN6005
Since the first of the year I know you have heard me talk a lot about getting fit. It has been great to have a great support team at work and I have to admit I am a little afraid that come summer break I will slip. Recently I have been back sliding a bit with my busy schedule so when I got the chance to review a new workout outfit from Ellie I was SUPER excited. Looking through their website of super cute outfits it was really hard to decide what I wanted. After much thought I decided to go with the Little Black Capris and  After Dark Shirt making sure to use their handy size chart to figure out just the right fit for me.
I did avoid this time going with the "let's get the size I would like to be" thought that was running through my mind. After all this outfit is the motivation to get to that size not an outfit I wanted to wear at a later time. When I check the mail and saw a shiny pink foil envelope in the mail box I didn't even have to look at the sender it was like a kid at Christmas lol. Opening the bag I first noticed the feel of the material. I hadn't had work out clothing made of this material before. It is very thick and stretchable. I wasn't sure if this material would make me sweat or keep me dry! Their TruFit technology ensures that it will never shirk and always be flattering, well as much as a fat roll can flatter.lol I do have to admit compared to the other brands I currently use I do look a WHOLE LOT better in this great Ellie outfit.

When I selected my outfit I had several things in mind. First I wanted something that was designed with enough coverage that I would feel comfortable wearing it out in public. Then I also wanted to make sure I could wear it out and get a little sun and TRY to stay cool! Here in West Texas it is hot from sun up till sun down, so any outside workouts are going to require that you are hot. In fact when I woke up this morning for my run it was already 65 degrees before the sun started to rise. The Capri pants give me the coverage that my legs need to make sure that as a teacher I keep modest in covering up. Shorts on me always tend to be a little risky. The top I wasn't to worried about as a small chested woman I don't have much struggle with that :) but the Shirt provided me with the exposed back so that I could work on my tan a little bit to while I was working out.

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.
