Mardi Gras and some! Wednesday, Feb 22 2012 

As I sit here enjoying my popcorn, because I have already had my King Cake and about a months worth of sweets today, I realized that I have not blogged in a few days.  That’s just not nice of me.  So many things going on.


The weekend was filled with fun, food, and friends.

Friday night we hung out with some friends and enjoyed beer and champagne.

Satruday night we attended a Mardi Gras party.  Not quite Louisiana style but definitely reminded us of  home.

Sunday night the hubby and I finally went out to celebrate our anniversary.  We went to The Melting Pot.  It was so yummy.


Monday the kids were out of school.  We had company over for some Gumbo, Potato salad, deviled eggs, sweet tea and King Cake.  Yes, I ordered my King Cake.  We also found out that we will be moving to Tampa, Florida this summer.  I am so excited.  I have wanted to go there forever.


Tonight my blog is also about Lent.  I am not part of a Religion that gives up things for Lent.  However, I have decided to try it out this year.  What better way to give up something?  Therefore, with the support of friends and family, I have decided to give up smoking!  There I said it.  The way I look at it, I am not getting the full benefits of clean living if I am still smoking these nasty cigarettes.  I guess my biggest fear is weight gain.  OF course, I am in the gym a lot so I am hoping that will be enough.  Wish me luck! Please


Also, I have been trying to figure out why I hit a Plateau so fast.  I figured it out this weekend.  It is my emeals that I love so much.  Thing is, I haven’t reached my goal weight.  Therefore, I am at a stand still and just maintaining.  Good thing is, I haven’t gained any.  I will resume my emeals once I have reached my weight loss goal.

I hope you enjoy this post and I hope you all have a great evening.


What a week! Saturday, Dec 3 2011 

This has been one heck of a week.  I am not so sure that I am ready for the weekend.  Not to mention I only have two weeks to get everything done to prepare to go to Lousiana for Christmas but before that we are doing our Christmas here in Kansas.  This means that I have to coordinate with Santa to make sure he knows which house to come to.  Otherwise, I may have some very disappointed kids on Christmas day.  It is going to be alot of work but it will be great to spend Christmas with family down south this year.  We haven’t been home for Christmas since 2001!!!  Should be exciting!!

As for my week in work out and eating clean……. big fat :p  Didn’t do so well this week.  Mainly because I haven’t been able to eat.   I think it is sinus but I hope I am not coming down with something. When I did eat, I ate somewhat clean.  So I guess that’s not too bad. I did work out Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  I just could not get there Thursday and Friday.  I am hoping next week will be better.  Maybe I just needed a break.

Speaking of eating clean… my husband came home early and I was volunteering at the Exchange to wrap presents so I wasn’t here.  I called him and asked him to thaw out some ground meat so that I could make chili.  He did just that, only problem, he didn’t take out the clean ground beef…..So, do I put the ground meat back and take out mine while risking him never wanting to help again or do I just go with it?  You got it, I went with it….. 🙂 I cooked up some homemade chili and everyone is happy now…

I also found a natural, clean snack the other day that I am very excited to share with you.  I will be posting a picture later this weekend.

I am done here for the night.  Make sure you check back………
