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.

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 …
