Spaghetti Squash Alfredo - Shake up your dinner routine with some spaghetti squash Alfredo - coming in at 280 calories per serving!…RECIPE


Here we go… Again. 8/17/14

Day 1 of 30 Day Shred completed! My sister and I are holding each other accountable every day and getting it DONE! Even though she’s in another state! Haha
I also signed up to do a “weight loss challenge” at work. It’s just to see how much weight we can lose as a group. I said my goal is to lose ten pounds. Of COURSE the leader of the group thought I didn’t even have ten pounds to lose but I know I do! My clothes hide my body well and I’m sure I could lose 5 pounds in my stomach alone! So yes, ten pounds in three months is my goal. I’m thinking it’ll be easy with exercise and watching what I’m eating especially since I’m still nursing that’ll help me out even more. I just want to get to my goal weight before Adam weans because I know I’ll probably gain a little after that.


This is what I need to be eating more of!

My mother in law loves me! She gave me her keurig! 😍 Thanks @bonnieg1950

I’ve actually made dinner this week and tried watching what I’m eating. Except today. It was a “fat” day where I had Starbucks and pastries and junk food. BUT I did 35 mins of the Jillian Michaels no more trouble zones DVD tonight.
I need to get back in shape, I should NOT be getting out of breath walking up the two flights of stairs at work. And I’m pretty squishy from having Adam lol
Hoping I can grocery shop this weekend and get healthy easy dinner stuff and LOTS of produce.
I made cauliflower cheese sticks the other night and I’m HOOKED! They were so good! It was cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, eggs, garlic cloves and oregano. So good! I made It with spaghetti and then I ate left overs all week. Haha
All four of us have been walking Emma to the bus stop in the mornings too! This is a HUGE change from last year where we were rushing out the door all crazy and speeding down the street in the car to get her to the bus on time. It was so bad. I like our morning walks we talk the whole way then me and Tommy get back to the house gather our stuff and drop Adam off at my mom’s then head to work and shockingly I’ve been getting there on time for the first time in months!
Trying to get life back together… Tommy and I are both getting out of our depression I think. It’s a good thing and I’m feeling like really great things will be happening soon!

"Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?"
