How is it going? Well, here it is the kids first week out of school and already I am slacking! But I am kinda glad I am this week, my 3rd months shipment of food came in and I did unboxing videos! I sure, did! This is all my food for the month. And this month my Weight Loss Counselor, Graham, made sure I got to try some of the foods I had not received yet. So, yeah there are two videos for you to check-out. I unboxed my frozen and myshelf stable food, sorry I got a little long winded....but I hope you enjoy.

**Sorry about how my hair looks, but hey it's summer and we have been spending lots of time in the pool! This is real life, just me :).

Here is just some random stuff. So, my new scale has yet to get here *sigh*. But I asked my hubby to pick up some batteries for my old scale. I got an email to order my 10 lb Nutribear! I'm excited for that, just a little acknowledgement that I am doing this. I have been spending lots of time in the pool exercising. 

As always if you have any questions please free free to contact me! I will try my best to help you in any way I can!

Ultimate Volcano Kit Review #discoverwithdrcool




Discover with Dr Cool
#discoverwithdrcool

What I say:

Summer time, sweet-sweet summer time! Not even out of school a week and I hear-"Mom, I have
nothing to do!" My son, Wade likes hands on projects so he really loved this kit and had a great time with it. We got all our stuff together and put paper down on the floor to protect it. I have worked with plaster lots of time.  I will tell you there is more in the bag than you will need. If you mix it per instructions it will not come out like you need it to. So start slow, I used half the bag of plaster and added water as needed-BUT YOU HAVE TO BE FAST! So I did this part mush to Wades protest. Over all it's a cute and fun kit that we had fun with even if it did not make a big boom at the end like he wanted it to. There is more than enough eruption mix to use it more than a few times.

What's in the kit?

  • Volcano Mold
  • plaster
  • paints
  • brush
  • eruption powder(2 that will need to be mixed)
  • 3 real specimens (pumice, obsidian arrowhead, and a geode)
  • Full-Color Info and Activity guides




Product Description

* Make a volcano erupt and collect 3 real volcanic specimens (pumice, obsidian arrowhead, and a
geode)
* Ultimate kit includes: Volcano Mold, plaster, paints, brush, eruption powder, and 3 real specimens
* Perfect science fair project or gift for kids 6-12 that are interested in volcanoes, earth science or geology
* Full-Color Info and Activity guides were written by teachers are filled with cool science facts about volcanoes and puzzles to solve
* Winner of Gold Award from Family Review Center, Kids Product of the year from Creative Child Magazine, and Seal of Approval from the Toy Directory


We've turned this classic science experiment into the ultimate hands-on volcano experience! First you'll use the plaster and mold included to make your volcano chamber. Then you'll use the brush and paints included in the kit to decorate it. Next
you'll make the volcano erupt over and over again with the eruption powder (included). Plus you'll get to examine 3 genuine volcanic specimens including: a real geode, an obsidian arrowhead, and a floating piece of volcanic rock called pumice. The information guide will teach you all about your specimens as well as how volcanoes form and why they erupt. Also included is an activity booklet with 10 fun games, puzzles, and challenges to complete. Because everything is included in the kit, you won't need to run to the store for additional supplies. If you're doing this project for the science fair, you'll love how nice this volcano looks---it's way better then those paper mache volcanoes. This is the perfect science kit for anyone interested in geology, earth science, or volcanoes.


AWARDS WON: Gold Award - Family Review Center 2012, Seal of Approval - Family Review Center - 2012, Kids Product of the Year - Creative Child Magazine -2012 and Seal of Approval - Toy Directory Monthly 2013.


SPECIAL TIPS:

Some tips for casting a successful volcano: the Ultimate Volcano directions call for one cup of water to be added to the plaster, and this amount works for most customers. However, if you have added a full cup and the mix still seems too thick to pour into the mold, stir in a little extra water, adding a bit at a time (up to 1/4 cup). The ideal consistency should be thick, but pourable. We also recommend working quickly and using cold water throughout, since warm or hot water can make the plaster harden more quickly.

By The Sea Candle Wax Warmer #scentsationals




#scentsationals
Buy it on Amazon

What I say: 

Being from Georgia this By the Sea candle wax warmer reminds me of Savannah. It is truly a beautiful piece that will warrant attention. This is the first time I have had a warmer that used a light bulb as heat. The light just adds to the beauty making it look like a light house in the dark. It has an extra long cord so there is not really an issue about were it can be placed. The warmer tray is easily removable for disposing of the wax melts and it deep enough to accommodate different size melts. The only issue I see could be an issue is the decorative star in the middle of the warmer tray would make it hard to place the larger tarts in it.  But with so many wax melts of the market that is not a really big issue at all. I currently have it set on my stove top, is it wrong that I want to redo my entire kitchen around a candle wax warmer?

Week 6? Really how is that even possible? So what's going on? We got our pool up and running, that is truly a blessing to me. It is so much easier for me to exercise in the pool, the water really helps support the weight of my body and I find my joints so not hurt the next day. I also find that I exerciser longer than 30 minutes and my kids do it with me! This is also my 3 children's last week of school so that means I will be cooking more because they stay hungry all the time. I spoke to my Nutrisystem counselor about my next months shipment and some of the foods I would like to try. I'm am very excited to be getting in some of the new foods.


My new scale has yet to make it to me-but my son had a doctors appointment last week and my weight was way less on the doctors scales then it is on my home scales. Since my home scales are the ones I weight on weekly I will be using that weight. But, if you want to know it was a eight pound difference between what their scales said and and what mine said. 

This week I have really found myself missing the shakes I got on FAST5, I have been craving the energi-ZING! 

And now a few of the questions I have been asked:

1) Where are all the food photos you were posting? Sorry, I will do better. It's just for the most part I was posting the items as I tried them. So I was not re-posting the items you had already seen. 

2) Where am I losing the most weight at? part of my body? My belly/stomach-that is were I see it and feel it the post right now. I should of took measurements when I started. I could never find the measuring tape and I keep forgetting to buy one. And to tell the truth I have a lot of loose skin on my body so I really do not know where to measure. 

3) Do I feel better? Ummm...YES, with only a 16 pound weight loss my blood sugar has been reduced and so has my blood pressure. 

4) Does the food taste bad? NO! It really is good! 

5) Will I stay on the program after the 3 months blogging? I would LOVE too. But it is not in my family budget at this time. But if i can find away to, YES, I will and very want to stay on the plan. I'm just going to PRAY about it!

6) My goal weight? My goal weight is: HEALTHY! I lost my mom a week before I graduated high school. She had issues due to being over weight and being a type 2 diabetic. When I was in Jr High she lost a leg due to uncontrolled sugar issues. She passed away from a massive heart attack. I had gestational diabetes with 2 of my 3 children-so I worry! I want to be around for my children.

start weight: 338(yes I am a big girl)

(4/20): 326
(4/27): 324
(5/4):   323.6

PestNoMore Rodent Zapper - Electronic Rat Trap #rodentzapper




#rodentzapper
Pest No More
Buy it on Amazon

What I say:

It's pretty much just a fact of life in the county that mice and rats want in! We have a cat, free range chickens(yes, chickens eat mice) and a 2 1/2 pound chihuahua that help keep down the population but occasional they do make there way in. For the most part I really have not seen them but I have found their poop! We have tried other methods of control in the past like, poisons, glue traps(I have stuck my hand in one-yuke) and snap traps(I fear these thinks-snap snap). But I worry about some of those methods of removal because we do have children, a cat and also two very small inside dogs.
PestNoMore Rodent Zapper - Electronic Rat Trap was very easy to set up right out of the box. I clicked it together with no issue at all. I love the fact that it can be ran off batteries(not included) or plugged in to a wall outlet. I have had it installed over a week now in our home but have yet to catch anything...I'm taking that as a good thing(because I have not seen any poop either) Today I am moved it out to our barn, where we keep the chickens food because I have noticed some activity there. Within an HOUR I had to empty it! Am I pleased? YES!!! I don't have to worry about a poisoned mouse wondering off and our cat or chickens eating it. I no longer have to worry about them eating our chickens feed and having poop everywhere!
