Total Fail!!!!

Well this week has totally sucked!!! I'm still eating my fruits & veggies but for dinner I changed it up this week and I guess due to that I didn't lose anything at all!!!  

I also had dinner at a restaurant on Thursday with my sister and her family here are visiting from Florida - that meal alone was 1200 calories! What was I thinking! Oh well - lucky for me I don't dwell too long on my mistakes and just try to do better the next day! :)  *shrug* and keep it moving......

Now my biggest challenge has arrived - THE WEEKEND! BASEBALL GAMES!  I NEVER eat healthy or keep to my calorie count on the weekends - I always give into the temptation - cheese fries, chips, soda, burgers.....and it goes on & on.  I already had breakfast which consisted of 2 fried eggs, 2 slices of bacon, 1/2 a roll and my coffee - already a cheat, LOL.  I do, however, plan on packing my cooler with salads & fruits for the remainder of the day - no more bad stuff for me!
Keeping my fingers crossed and hope I don't fail again!

Eat to Live!!!

Well, here we are another Monday and another day for me to struggle with my meals and weight loss.  I tried Herbal Life a few months back but couldn't stick to it.  I just couldn't do 2 shakes a day along with the tea - it just didn't work for me so on to the next.  I gained weight after that and haven't really done much until recently.
One of the baseball moms told me about a book, "Eat to Live" and she asked me if I'd be willing to try this lifestyle change with her.  I was and am worried about being able to keep up an all vegetable & fruit diet but I told her I'd do it and take it day to day.  I won't commit 6 weeks - so I started last Monday.  It wasn't easy, and Monday I even went to bed hungry but as the days went by it got better and easier.  Ofcourse the weekend was a disaster, but that's ok!  I'm back on it today.

All I eat are fruits and veggies (greens, beans).  I just need to use the cookbook that goes with this book to get more meal ideas - I do get bored of eating the same thing every day!

If you are looking for a healthier way of eating, I highly recommend this book.  Its not only for weight loss, it is a full lifestyle change!  Dr. Furhman highly believes that eating a plant based diet is very effective in preventing diseases and staying healthy.


So far I'm doing good - lost 3 pounds the first week.  Here I start my second week - anyone want to join me?

Happy July 4th Weekend!!!

A bit late but hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July!!  We spent it at a friend's house and watched the fireworks on tv - for us it really is the best view!



I've been so busy with my son's baseball season that I haven't much time for anything else!  Every weekend since last month has been baseball, and this will continue through the end of July.  At times we do get tired, and I hate seeing my house turned upside down, but I'm enjoying every minute.  We probably only have this summer & the next with these baseball games as my son only has 2 years left in highschool.  Everything will change once he's in college so I am enjoying every minute of this crazy schedule right now.



Both kids finished school & moved on to the next grade, baby girl finished up her dance classes and will attend 2 weeks of dance camp.  My son has continued to play ball - HS and now travel on 2 teams!  This should be a great summer.

As much as I am enjoying our baseball weekends - I am also looking forward to August!  Baby girl's birthday celebration, a baseball showcase and VACATION!!!!! I've already started planning our vacation - we will be driving to Florida, stopping in NC to see my newborn nephew and continue on our way to see my FL family!!!  I may be adding some surprises along the way - and I'll be sure to report it here!  This should be a great vacation - as long as the weather cooperates.  I am taking my 2 nieces and nephew along - this will be their first trip to Florida, so I can't wait to get them there!  This will be a vacation to remember!

OK - this is it for now.  I gotta get back to cleaning my daughter's room - it is a disaster in there!
