A Mother's Ramble...

As a mom, there's nothing better for me than spending time with my kids. Well, almost nothing...tonight the kiddos went to bed early and I took the opportunity to take a l-o-n-g, h-o-t bath. It was wonderful. I used my favorite Bath and Body Aromatherapy sugar scrub and bubble bath. Milk and Honey is so relaxing and it smells so good. While the kiddos were sleeping, mommy was enjoying some peace and quiet.

On the weight loss front, I am down 12 pounds in four weeks. I'm eating low-carbohydrate. In essence I'm eating a lot of meats and veggies. What I haven't enjoyed in over four weeks: anything breaded and deep fried, sweet stuff, bread, & pasta. I have found some yummy sugar free chocolate pudding that I top with whipped cream. I try limit myself to one or two of those a week because they tend to make me crave sweet stuff. Russel Stover also make some sugar free candies that are pretty darned close to chocolate! I am still using my Wii Fit for work outs and I love it. Last week I worked out every single day. I've started the Yoga. I hadn't tried it before last week just because I didn't think I would be able to do it. Now that my balance and coordination is a bit better on the Fit Board, I am doing Yoga and I'm actually enjoying it. It's a great tool for a busy mom like me who can't make it to the gym.

This month we're taking the kiddos to Disney on Ice in Little Rock. They're super excited about it. I'll have more details about the show as it gets closer.

Next month is our annual Family Reunion on my dad's side of the family. Although I'm not very close with my dad. In fact I've only spoken to him a handful of times since last year's get together. I haven't seen him at all but I still enjoy going and visiting with the rest of the family. Usually it is far away and we get a hotel. The kiddos love to stay at a hotel. This year it is pretty close so we will not be staying over. I am sure the kids will be a bit disappointed, but I just don't see the point in spending the extra money for a room when it's only about a 30 minute drive back to our home.


Are you going to win one of the DVDs in my give away?!

Twelve lbs!!! Good for you! Boy, I need to do that, too. I feel the pounds piling up and I've got to put the brakes on, fast
I'm a carb addict. Literally. And it's all in my gut. Just charming...
Protein is good at burning fat and help with the hungries. Carbs are killers - and I love them SO much.
Continue success to you!
