My Plan Day 3-Down 1 more pound!

   
      Wow I have to say waking up the morning of the last of the cleanse phase and being down 6.4 pounds already I just can't wrap my head around how this has happened. Breakfast, lunch, and snak were all pretty uneventful today.lol I am a creature of habit and this book says that is bad.....but so far I just keep eating the same things and it is a lot of carrots haha. The excitement for the day though is I got CHICKEN BREAST WOOHOO! Now I was shocked how much 2 ounces of chicken really was. I wanted to start on the slow side of the recommendation because well....... I'm not really that big of a person. At 5'7" I am at 126.6 pounds today and what started as a 10 pound weight loss goal I am now completely unsure of my goal. I guess my goal is what my body wants it to be :p. That really seems to be the thing is we gain weight and I guess the numbers in our head all spin.This time my plan isn't about loss though it is about health! Now many of you have heard me talk about my involvement with Plexus which I LOVE....we about 5 pm tonight I started getting lightheaded so even though I said I was going to cut it out till it could be tested I had a Plexus Slim about 30 minute before dinner to help my blood sugar levels. I guess we will see how that reflect on the scale tomorrow huh :/

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

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 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 …
