My Plan Day 2- Down Another 1.6 pounds!

      All I have to say is wow! I thought surely after yesterdays HUGE weight loss I would be lucky to see the scale budge at all let alone that much. While I do I have to say I try to follow The Plan diet as much as possible I have made a couple modifications due to availability of items and money. The one thing I have noticed is this book could be expensive to follow to a T. I am not taking supplements and couldn't find detox tea but ALWAYS ALWAYS start my morning with two ice cold glasses of water with some lemon in it :)

Breakfast today I did NOT make a smoothie out of my items lol. I chewed and chewed and chewed my flax seed and made a smoothie out of my rice milk and blueberries though :). Why you may ask.....well I hate blueberries lol, and while I completely understand the importance of including them in a diet, like a small child the quicker I can get them down the better! I think the important thing is I got all my items in my stomach ;).

Lunch was soup, it's been freezing so soup is great. I have to say I have eaten so many carrots and as I look through the book the promise of carrots for every day is a little overwhelming. Now I didn't realize at the time I completely miss my sunflower seeds with this meal which I probably would have enjoyed! And on top of that I cannot force myself to eat an avocado :/

Snack was another first for me.....yes in 31 years I had NEVER had a raw pear! I have to say it was pretty good lol. At least I added something new for me into my diet today. That is the hardest part of this plan is most of these things have never passed my lips and I am nothing short of a little scared of many of them.

Dinner was gross......yeah I know that is awful to say but I didn't enjoy the kale on day 1, reheating it didn't make it any better, and plain brown rice......well it didn't do as much for me as I would have hoped lol. The beat and carrot salad was still surprisingly good and most of my meal seemed to consist of it because I couldn't gag all my kale down.

Now I have to say that the last two days weren't as hard as many people had said, I'm not sure if that is because I had given up caffeine, soda and alcohol 4 weeks ago or I had just worked my fear up so high that it is easy lol. I actually feel really great and beside a little sleepy probably even feel better already, if nothing else I am more then 5 pounds lighter already!

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

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

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 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 After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
