Extreme Makeover-- Me Edition and A Big Day

This week Amber who began an Extreme Makeover Me Edition has posted the question of the week. What are some methods you use to stave off temptation and/or keep from overeating??

One thing that has helped me these past couple of weeks has been green smoothies. Guys I know I sound like a beaten record now. They have taken away my sugar cravings! I have also been drinking lots of water! One of my followers tried the green smoothies and enjoyed it! You go Lela! If you still think you might try one, but are unsure....just google "green smoothies". That is one huge thing that has helped with temptation. Nuff said!

This week I also started exercising. My goal is to exercise 5-6 times per week. I am doing The Biggest Loser DVD. My booty is sore!! It reminds me to get off the computer and get to moving!

With all that said I am pleased to report a loss this week of 3.2 lbs.! Woo Hoo!

Drink your water!! Move your body!

A Big Day

Speaking of sore 7 year old sure has had a lot of fun with today. (April Fool's Day) My booty was almost stained blue!! My little sneaker got into the cabinet and got some blue food coloring out. Next, he proceeded to color the toilet water blue and put some on the TP. He later informs me that when you go to the bathroom the water turns green.

Yes, yellow + blue = green.

Then he left this note at the front door for Daddy...

But this is what has been taking up most of my day.............

This is who kept crawling in my bed last night and off and on all day! Caden picked up Daddy's headache, stomach ache, and a fever! My heart aches when my kiddos don't feel good! Gotta take care of my sick baby!

One last big thing today was Parent/Teacher Conferences. I am so proud of Cameron. He is such a bright, outstanding boy. He had all A's once again! He is a hard worker and tries to do his best! I've got the best boys in the world!!!'s all Folks! That was my big day!

Enjoy each day and smile!

Keep it all up Rhonda! You're doing great! BTW, it has taken me over 3 mos. to lose my 10.5 lbs. Very slow going, but it's those last 10 that are the hardest :)

Have a blessed week!

P.S. I hate when my kiddos are sick, too! It's just heart wrenching. I hope he's feeling better today :)

Great job with the weight loss!

Oprah talked about a green smoothie a while back but I'm not sure I can get all of the veggies to blend in my blender. Seems like a lot of stuff!

Sorry your little man is sick, sick kids are the worst. Nothing like feeling completely helpless!

Congrats on the weight loss....I am doing the same thing around here. To bad we don't live closer so we could be walking buddies. Have a great day!
