I have a confession

I have been doing great with my exercise plan. I have it all mapped out for the month and following it. What I haven't been doing really well is tracking and measuring my food and the scale reflects it. The best ab exercise is to walk away from the frig and you can't outwork what you put in your mouth. So I have re- dedicated myself to the diet plan and containers. I'll let you know how it goes when I check back in next week.

Happy Birthday Avery Rose

Hard to believe you are 17 years old. Seems just like yesterday they were putting you in my arms. You have grown into a very amazing young woman and your dad and I are very proud of you. Happy Birthday sweet girl.

I have Vacation ADD

I'm not sure where to begin. I want to hike. I want to workout. I want to quilt. I want to clean. I want to read. I want to plan. I want to watch movies. I can't think of what to do first. Good thing I have two more days of work to figure it out. huh?

Hi Again

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted on here. My computer hard drive took a dump and I just got it fixed. So since my last post I have been doing the 21 day fix since February. So far I am down 12.5 pounds and 13 inches. The biggest part of this for me has been the eating. That is why this week I am running a 5 day Clean Eating and Water challenge. No sugar. No white flour, bread or rice. No processed foods and half your body weight in ounces of water daily. I  have never peed so much. After the first day it was note to self "buy more toilet paper". I may even get brave and put my before and after photos on here. Bye for now. Come get healthy with me.

Be Enough

Take each day at a time. Plan~ but don't be overwhelmed by the big picture. Take baby steps to your goals and little by little you will get to the place you want to be. Let whatever you do today be enough

Waste Not

so huge sadface. My computer is broken and I'm still trying to figure out how to post pictures and blog from my Ipad. I made another mini quilt out of scraps. Trying to use up all the fabric around my desk before I start a new project and I have 3 baby quilts to make. Lots of mini quilts to make and a fabric stash to organize. Also part of the "waste not" is shopping in the freezer and pantry to come up with a meal plan for this coming week. My challenge is finding meals that I can eat with the 21 Day Fix plan that my family will also eat. This week looks like this:
Sunday- Spinach chicken balsamic dressing
Monday- stuffed bell peppers
Tuesday- Baked potatoe soup
Wednesday- Zuchini boats
Thursday-Chicken salad in wheat pita
Friday- flank steak and salad
Saturday-Vegetable Quiche
We've also rented a U Haul to take all the boxes we've been storing from our move to open up the third bay garage for Avery's car. I  feel a little weird about this. We've kept them 3.5 years. So I hope there is not another move around the corner. The great thing about doing this is I found all kinds of wooden embroidery hoops and some more fabric. Any tips for blogging from your ipad and posting pictures? Thanks

New Sunday Prep

 Tomorrow I start the 21 day fix. I've taken my measurements, made my video, took my before picture- none of which I will be sharing with you. Trust me you don't want to see that %^&$. But I will tell you that I will be exercising EVERY day and all those fruit and veggies containers I've been making will come into play. It takes 21 days to create a new habit and my wish is to create many habits that will lead me to a more healthy lifestyle. Without our health we have nothing. So this Sunday I have prepped our food, laid out my work outfits and planned my workout times.
