Extreme Makeover-Me Edition


How Bad did YOU mess up?



This is MY FAVORITE!!!!!! I love these little eggs of YUMMY goodness!!!! I eat them very carefully, I gently bite off the chocolatey outside, then slowly eat the "oh so Heavenly" peanut buttery center! That is why the Easter Bunny knows better than to bring very many of these to our home!!!! I confess though...I did endulge, and I enjoyed them. GUILTY!!!!


O.K. so my hubby nor I have family around us, so no yummy dinners to go to. Infact for our delicious Easter feast we had.... enchiladas, which I could live without so whatever. BUT...I also made my oh so hot and wonderful salsa....which I devour...the salsa itself is healthy...the chips however are not!! Luckily this stuff goes through me quickly so it was like a body cleanse(too much info? sorry!) Anyway, Hunter Dan took the last of it to work to share with the guys there, and I am starting fresh! My salsa, and reese's eggs binge is over! IT WAS REALLY GOOD!!!!:-)


So here's this weeks question....


What are you going to do this week to get yourself back on track??


1. Eat less!!! Back on the calorie counting!

2. drink a TON of water

3. exercise!!!!!!!

4. Healthy snacking...fruits, veggies, pretzels...ya know the drill!

5. Be happy...I'm gettin' healthy..how awesome is that!?!


Next week I will come back with a better report! Holidays can be hard, especially Easter with all that pretty pastel candy...seriously, I love the aisles in the store, decorated for this spring holiday! Back to gettin' fit! YAY!!!! Go link up with Amber and get some awesome support from the ladies that have joined Extreme Makeover-Me Edition!!

An Award!!!
The adorable Mom...That Girl over at Sunshine and Rainbows gave me the Mom of the Year award. She is so cute and I love her blog! Why she gave me this...I am not sure..I don't
feel like the Mom of the Year, but I do LOVE being a Mom!
The rules of this award are....
Admit one thing you feel awful about involving being a mom.Get it off your shoulders. Once you've written it down, you are No Longer allowed to feel bad. It's over with, it's in the past. Remember, you're a good mom! I feel like I don't have enough time... I always feel at the end of the day that I didn't teach my kiddos enough, or wasn't patient enough, or worried more about how clean the house was, instead of if my kids were happy! I am vowing to be better!
Remind yourself you are a good mom, list seven things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you.These are the things to remind yourself everyday that you Rock!
1. I love to hear the sound of my kids voices saying, Mom, momma, mommy, and know they are talking to me! How awesome is that!?
2. I love when my son tells me I'm a geek...means the world to me, he's always smilin' when he says that, and I know he likes when I make up weird songs, or do goofy things!
3. I love playing school with Jibbity...she's the teacher, and she's very strict....so funny!
4. I love the sweetness of Lexlee, she is so caring and thoughtful. I look to her as an example!
5. Love, love, love snuggling with my little Ashie...she is dependant on me, I love that feeling!
6. I love when we all do things together... simple things, like running around the living room, and having beanbag fights(thanks again Michelle).
7. I am sooo grateful that I have been blessed with them, they are my world!
Send this to five other Mom's of the year that deserve credit for being great moms and remind them that they are the best moms they can be!! Remember to send them a note to let them know you've selected them, and add a link to the person who nominated you.

You amaze me everyday! Thanks for the award! I'm so glad you found me. I love to read your blog everytime you post. You are also an inspiration in the weight loss arena. I just found long lost friends from about 25 years gone by on face book and I really want to lose before I see them. I can do this, yes I can. You are my example!

That Girl said...

I gave you the award because of the things you listed. You are a great mom!!

Vivienne said...

I haven't received an award in Blog-Land before. Thank you, even though I will have some 'fessin to do. :) I don't know how to add that little graphic or anything, either. (Take one look at my blog and you can see that I'm a stock template kind of girl...)help?

Your loving description of the Reese's egg (and of your kids!) is great.

Enchiladas sound like a great Easter dinner. Will you be sharing your salsa recipe...? :-)

Amy said...

Oh I love those treats. I say I am going to Wal-mart I wonder if they are on sale there. I guess I should walk more instead. Maybe tie them to my little one's stroller it may go faster?

shortmama said...

This is definitely the week for getting back on track! I love how you eat the reese's eggs, I eat regular reese's cups the same way! Well when I actually allow myself to eat them anyway. Congrats on the award!

capperson said...

I eat my Reese's eggs and my Peanut butter cups the same exact way. They are sooo good and most def. my fav!!

michelle said...

My husband loves those too! He made sure there were a lot in the kid's Easter baskets! I made sure the kids had a lot of whoppers. That's what i'm obsessed with! ohhhh; a cake dome filled with whoppers. Now thats a dream. haha.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Good post! :) Those peanut butter eggs and I are on good terms. Too good. Like Terms of Endearment. ;)

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Your seven points were terrific...no wonder you got the award!! Indulge, indulge. I'm glad summer is around the corner and all those delicious good for you things are available!

jennykate77 said...

Those Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs should be illegal! Sounds like you've got a good plan to get back on track this week. I should probably try to do that myself. Congrats on your winnings! Thanks for the award! I'll post it soon. ☺

Hope you're having a great day!!

I found a bunch of those king sized Resse's Eggs on clearance at Target for $.24 each. I literally had to talk myself out of it. I wanted to fill my whole cart!

mama-face said...

ME? Are you sure?? I cannot believe it! Though it is NOT true, Thank you!

Thanks for your other kind words; I needed that!

I purposely buy candy I don't like for Easter (or other holidays)...little trick I learned a while ago! :-)

Have a wonderful day!

Kris said...

I'm definitely guilty of eating a few too many of those, too!

I LOVE your sleeping pictures from the last post! Oh, I'm still laughing!!!!

Staci said...

The Reeses eggs and cadbury eggs have been KILLING me!
Congrats on winning the giveaway and the award! woohoo! Have a great week!

Jennifer said...

My son got ONE peanut butter egg... Before I knew it, it was gone. I was stunned; my hubby threw it out. DIDN'T HE KNOW I WAS DROOLING OVER IT!?? The nerve. I guess he saved me from a few unnecessary calories and a lot of guilt!
Happy Easter mama!
Keep up the good work on your make over.

Xazmin said...

Yes, my dear...we CAN do this!

Maybe we should take turns runnin' laps at the boutique on Saturday!

We could like jog around the whole farm!

Have a good night...happy HEALTHY snacking!!!
