My Plan Day 1-Down 3.8 pounds!

So I have been working for some time to lose the weight that keeps growing around my middle. As a woman we all know that is the worst place for it to flock to. I mean go to my boobs or butt and we can work with that, but the middle is unattractive an unhealthy! I decided to give The Plan by Lyn-Genet Recitas a shot. This year I am giving myself the gift of health plain and simple. And after watching reviews, listening to podcasts, and reading books I thought THIS would be the best place to start. So on to day 1 and how it went for me :)

Day 1
Breakfast- I had in my mind I would not be able to eat the granola on The Plan.....Soooo I had a brilliant idea to make a smoothie out of all my breakfast ingredients. Let's just say I am not going to be winning a noble peace prize ANY TIME SOON! It turned into an instant blob of jelly nastiness.lol So breakfast didnt go so well and after adding over a cup of water I chugged down, while gagging, my creation. Now I do have to say it kept me full till lunch!

Lunch-Now lunch was pretty good, I had the Carrot Ginger soup that The Plan calls for. Now I really think I am going to have to play with the spices a bit more :) I usually rely on the package to spice things for me and didn't add enough, but on a bitter cold day a big hot bowl of soup with some yummy brocoli really hit the spot. Now I did forget to eat my half of a pear this day. :/ oooppppsss I wish I had eaten it by 2 pm lol.

Snack- Snack was just a half of an apple, which no isn't a lot but it was just enough to fill the empty void in my tummy.

Dinner-No dinner is where I wanted to cry! I'll admit I have never had a mushroom, never had a beet, and never had kale! To top that all off I hate carrots lmao. But I prepared my food and choked most of it down.lol I am really not a fan of kale it really burns my tongue. I do have to admit the carrot and beets were probably the best part of the night.

So yesterday was rough and I went to bed feeling really hungry! I guess I can say it paid off BIG TIME when I stepped on the scale this morning and was down 3.8 pounds!

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.
