Losing Fat Loving Food Friday 3/29

     Another month gone??  Really where is 2013 going?  Spring is here (well for most of the US) and the bikinis are in the stores.  I am no where ready for either.  Winter allows us to hide inside baggie clothes... BUT I have less of me to hide than this time last year!!

Not your modern stone aged family

   Come on admit it, you just started humming the theme song from The Flintstones.
Well I promise you will find more Flintstones further in this post however the family I'm talking about is The Croods.

Look what I got!

OK I know it is a little boastful but I just received an award ~ yeah.  
Big thanks to Carica at Proper Honey

Losing Fat Loving Food Fridays 3/22:It's getting harder

So how much do I have left of the 14 pounds I want to lose before April 6th?  14 pounds. You didn't think I was giving up on this after last week's post now did you? Well in all honesty the reason the number didn't change is I didn't make it to WW's tonight and I am not going to rely on my scale at home.  That doesn't mean I don't have things to share so read on ~

How Long Can We Keep It Clean?

    Right now my house is pretty clean ~ as in you could call and I'd say come on over.  I'm not saying that my home is a pigsty.  I'm also not the person who claims their house is a mess because the magazines are no longer alphabetized.  With those two extremes as 1 and 10 respectfully I'd say my family hovers around a 5. So yeah right now I'm pretty stoked with how my house looks.

Losing Fat Loving Food Friday 3/15

     Well we are officially done with 2 1/2 months of 2013 and so far I have lost 8 pounds. I am a bit disappointed that I will not be able to attain my goal of losing 20 pounds by April 6 however that is life and I am not on a race to reach a goal but rather trying to create a lifestyle that will last longer than the newest iPhone.

Tragedy Hits Our Mini Farm

     I "know" that the whole circle of life is no more evident than on a farm.  What I didn't 'know is how devastating losing a chicken would be.

2013 Book Challenge Update for February

         Here's February's update for the 5 Book Challenges. I didn't do as much as I hoped or hit as many unique needs for the challenges.  I have a plan for March and definitely going to be knocking some requirements out.

Plants and Peeps Update March 3

     It is hard to believe that February is gone and in just a few short weeks Spring will officially be upon us.  I thought I would update you on what's been happening both in and out of the Greenhouse;  Plants and Peeps.

Losing Fat Loving Food Friday 3/1

     Do you have a ritual that you follow on the days you weigh-in?   I do and I am very certain many, many others do as well.  Whether it is the best idea or not I tend to eat little more than breakfast before I hit the scales Thursday @ 5:30.  We changed our near 20 year ritual of having pasta on Wednesday nights, at the suggestion of our Weight Watchers leader, due to its effect on weigh-ins.  I have a selection of dresses, all very similar, that I wear.  No headband, no Pandora bracelet and definitely no shoes.  And I always visit the restroom once we arrive at the meeting.  My thought is by keeping things as similar as possible any movement on the scale is all me and I can't put it off to "my jeans or sweater"  which also means no excuses.  So with all of that the scale this week went down 1.4 pounds ~ yeah!!
