Becoming a Beachbody Coach

      I have to admit my whole life it was never really the weight I struggled with. Of course after children I gained more the I wanted to, but by all standards I was not obese and if you ask the doctor, while I have a little extra love around the middle. I have never been "fat" What I have always struggled with is my health and fitness. A couple months ago a friend sent me a program by Beachbody called 21 Day Fix and I fell in love. From learning the proper way to eat, and the things that my body loves and doesn't love, to fitness that not only didn't take me all damn day, but was fun and encouraging! After a couple months on the program and a lot of thought and talking with friends I decided that helping others feel the way I feel was what I wanted to do!

      Now don't get me wrong I still have some distance left in my journey, but I feel better then I have ever felt. I am sleeping 8 hours straight instead of 4. I have the energy to wake up early and work late, and of course with 3 kids that is one of the most important things. Old back injuries are starting to not hamper my ability to do every day tasks any more. Now I would be lying if I said this part of my journey has been easy. I have stumbled and fallen, but after picking myself back up I see progress and hope. I am starting to love who I AM for probably the first time ever in my life. Beachbody has given me not only the physical strength to do what I thought I never could, but the emotional strength to do what I thought I never could. 

     I will be posting a whole lot more on the topic in the coming days, weeks, months and years! I can't wait to see where this journey takes me and I hope that some of you will come along with me. Please feel free to learn more about Beachbody on my page and on my facebook page.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

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 li

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.
