Weight Loss: What Not to Do

Some of you may already know these secrets but for others(you know who you are) these may be revelations:

1.Do not awake at 3 am and eat all the cookies in the house with a large glass of milk.

2.Do not live off of Margaritas with salt.

3.Do not stand up while you eat(simutaneously yelling at your kids to sit down).

4.Do not eat and drive.

5.Do not shove food in your mouth so fast that you hardly chew it.(Also a safety tip)

6.Do not go to the gym and sit and drink coffee on the couch for 2 hrs.

7. Do not eat peanut butter out of the jar in large heaping spoonfuls.

8. Do not put blue cheese dressing on pizza that you don't like so that you can eat more.

9. Do not schedule your day around your meals.

10. Do not sit on your As* all day reading blogs and twittering.

Please feel free to add some ideas in your comments. Have a healthy day(or at least just Don't do one of these things)

Wii Fun!

 I know that I am a little behind the times but Santa brought us the Wii this year. We love it! Now we are spending night after night having family Wii challenges! We also got the Wii fit. BEWARE it is brutally honest and my Wii person blew up like a tic after my first test. But since then, each day my graph has gone down. If I don't have the time to go to the gym (which is often). I just hop on the Wii and get a little exercise while trying to beat a computer. The competition is fierce.

Anyway, if you do not have it yet, you have to get it.

No Caffeine for me after 3pm

WOW! I am up and ready to go. I am at my sister-in-laws and had some coffee with her at 4pm and am wired! I have already been on Facebook, Blogger and shopping on Pottery Barn. My 13 year old nephew is wondering when I am going to bed(I wonder why?) The wine I am drinking to counteract the coffee is not working. What to do?

Flushed Away

I need help.

My 4 1/2 year old son will not stop flushing things down the toilet. 

Yes, the other day I found my Michael Kors watch glistening in the porcelain God.

He has been doing this type of thing since he was 2! But it used to just be toys or too much toilet paper.

The fun never ends...

We have had a week of non stop fun with family and friends. My house is definitely feeling the neglect. I spent so much time getting it together prior to the holidays and my husband was amazed at how organized and wonderful it looked! Since this is his busy time of year, he only could enjoy Christmas day festivities while the kids and I have been having sleepovers, playing the Wii and enjoying lots of playtime. Now, the house is in shambles but there are a lot of smiles on every one's faces, even my husband....but I am awaiting the soon to be FROWN:( Maybe I will do an "hour of power" before the next party! 

Whoops, no time I have got to get in the shower! Have a great day.

God Bless Him!!!(or me)

 I am visiting my wonderful sister. Some of you may know her,(she spends a lot of time drinking diet coke and hitting small yellow balls). Thank goodness she did not pick teaching as a career!LOL

She had me bring my new sewing machine so I could learn the basics of threading. After a small tutorial, she left me to thread on my own. When she returned, I had only thread the bobbin. To which her reply was, "You could have not done it more wrong!"

P, I am so glad I still have you:)
