Staying out in the sun all day isn’t my idea of fun, but my kids are having a blast at Grammie’s… where they’re outside and need lots of sunscreen!
Are you addicted? To smoothies? Smoothies are a good addiction to have — no judgment here! When I started making smoothies at home, I realized I enjoyed the straw almost as much as I enjoyed the smoothie itself. Okay, so I get that it sounds a little weird, but when I go to a cafe they have those straws that make it easier to sip from. I ordered a package of those straws, and was in heaven. :) Then, I realized I shouldn’t be wasting all that plastic. If I gave up plastic water bottles, surely I could give up plastic straws. But it’s not like there are reusable straws all over the place… where do I find non-plastic straws?
Rachel really looks forward to her “cheat” day each week – like, seriously looks forward to it. It’s pretty much the only reason she wakes up on Thursday mornings. So, anyway, today is Thursday! I cooked her a Vegetarian Cheeseburger Pizza.

I was sent Couponing for the Rest of Us, written by Kasey Knight Trenum, to review and blog about. Couponing for the Rest of Us is the Not-So-Extreme Guide to Saving More.
Take stock of your pantry, create your stockpile, and learn how to use coupons on your terms. You don’t need to spend hours each week clipping coupons to save a few bucks. Couponing for the Rest of Us teaches you how to organize your coupons, use them at the best time, and stock up on things you will actually use. Slash your grocery bill by 50% or more by using Kasey’s strategies, which are outlined step-by-step in her book. She even has a section with tips for couponing with kids! We all know how hectic that can be.
Because of my slight purse addiction, I’m always looking for new ones. I bought one this weekend that is SUPER cute, and posted about it on my Facebook page. When I got home, though, I was inspired to make another. Because my boobs are way too big to use my own bra for this project, I headed to Goodwill to find the perfect bra to use to make my bra purse tutorial.
At the end of the tutorial, I included a photo of Rachel wearing one of the bras… which I think is quite adorable. ;)

My scale has a dead battery so I can’t weigh in, or calculate points. :/ I will calculate the rest of my points tomorrow when I can hopefully weigh in. I am fairly certain I maintained but not sure about any weight lost.
I’m gaining weight. Blah.
2 pound loss. Working VERY hard… it’s shark week so that means working even HARDER to show a loss on the scale.
2 pound loss. Been waking up at 5AM to work out every day. It sucks. I hate it. Better show a big loss next week. Still can’t give up my iced coffee (calories!!) yet.
1 pound loss. Exercise this week was pretty good. I was lazy on one morning but still made up for it the rest of the day. Why did I only lose one pound this week? I’m going to be 100% honest: FOOD! Thursday, I had crazy carbs and even ate a piece of pizza (which I later puked up because my stomach wasn’t used to that kind of food this week). Then, I had a soda yesterday. OH and a few bites of gooey butter cake. And a cup of ice cream. So, my one pound loss is MY fault and nobody elses. I am hoping for 2 pounds this coming week, though.
Leave your points for the week in the comments. I’ll be choosing a few winners of some REALLY cool prizes soon! Congrats to last week’s workout DVD winners!

Recently, I have caught a bit of flack for my “no nonsense” approach to weight loss, and weight loss advice. I have been trying to blog about various things all day, but none of the posts are finished… because I just have to get this rant out. Then, hopefully, I can go back to my regularly scheduled blogging duties. :)
Every time I post something about fitness on my Facebook page, I get tons of interaction. That tells me that you guys either love fitness, or love that I’m finally getting off my butt and doing something about this last 50 pounds I’ve been holding onto. Either way, I’m enjoying it and it’s pushing me hard to work out! Rachel has already lost 40 pounds, which is ridiculously awesome, so I’m trying to follow in her foot steps! If you ask her the “secret”, she will kick you. There is no secret.
