Stop Making New Years Resolutions

     We have all done it, and most of us likely still do. Every year on New Years Eve we sit and think of all the ways we want to change our lives. I want to get healthy. I want to save money. I want to pay off debt. This year instead of just saying what you want let's get real and actually plan for what we are going to achieve! It has been said that Failing to plan, is planning to fail. It the last 3 months I have found that as true as ever. You can say you are going to do it, but how? How are you going to get healthy? How are you going to save money? How are you going to pay off debt?

Time to make a plan!


Here are 6 steps to successful planning that will help you break in the New Year in style!

1. Start with a purpose! 
~~What is you goal this year? (these are mine feel free to make your own)
****I want to get healthy
****I want to help people achieve their health goals
****I want to save money

2. Set a time frame!
~~When you you want to achieve this goal by?
****ASAP
****All year long
****All year long

3. Find resources!
~~How are you going to achieve these goals?
~~Who will help
****Use Beachbody account
****Reach out to people that are looking for help
****Start meal planning

4. Surround yourself with like minded people!
~~Who supports your goals?
****My Beachbody friends
****Positive people
****Thrifty people

5. Plan your time spent!
~~What times will you use to achieve these goals?
****I will set aside 30 minutes a day for myself to work out
****I will set aside an hour a day to help other achieve their fitness and health goals
****I will set aside 15 minutes a day to plan out meals

6. HAVE FUN!


Now keep in mind my examples are just that, my goals for this year. I have a more indepth notebook to help me decide these goals and just how I am going to succeed. I suggest you do the same. Set aside that 30 minutes right now and look deeper into  your New Year! If you are reading this after the first don't stop, it is not to late to start now. Start any time of the year no matter day or night. If not come 2017 you'll wish you had already started!

#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

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place . With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days. Considering we hit a record high 103 degrees yesterday it came none to soon! Here is the adorable outfit that she picked out :O) she had to model it of course! Butterfly Shirt $6; Matching Shorts $6;Flip Flops to go with her out fit $3.50. The excitement of picking her outfit herself Priceless. She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the

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
