Transition Lifestyle

Okay, I am not one to try all these different diet plans, I did last spring join Weight Watchers. I was having great success but then my parents moved down and it took me way off track. I totally gave up in trying anymore because mom was cooking fabulous dinners and etc. As you may all know moms cooking is the best.
I recently took a class called Transition Lifestyle. It's an amazing thing. One that I could totally see how it works. It says it all in its name. It just making changes in your lifestyle to how you are eating. I have joined this ladies group, it's 6 week program. Basically you eat low-glycemic meals cut bad sugars. I am held accountable because they do a weigh in and measurments and body comp too. This is something I need to do. Make changes in my eating habits. I'll meet with her once a week for 6 weeks and then after the 6 week she'll meet with me once a month to still be acountable for myseld and track my progress. The 1st week you eat plenty of fruits and veggies, drink tea because its a detox week. Then from there you eat according to the book they give you that shows you what foods are low glycemic. I also have been turned on to Agave - which is a sweetner. Much better for you than the sugars and sweeteners out there. I'll try to document my progress weekly after I have my weekly meetings. I hope this makes the positive changes I am looking for in my life.

Wish me luck!!

Pumpkins, Pumpkins and more Pumpkins!

I LOVE Pumpkins!!! This past weekend we had our family friends in for a visit on Saturday. Sunday was a lay low kinda day. We ended up taking a ride to a side of the road pumpkin patch so that daddy and I could pick out our pumpkins. Brayden had already gotten his from Kersey Valley Maise Adventure but we still needed ours. So one night this week we will sit down together and carve them. Other than that on Sunday we didn't do too much. I did some baking. Saturday morning I made my lovely Pumpkin Rolls and Sunday I made Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were delish!! I also go all the ingredients to make my Lasagna Soup again!! I enjoyed not doing much this weekend. I am thinking this coming weekend will be the same as well. Family friends visiting Friday night and laying low Saturday and Sunday. My house is nice and clean. Most I'll have to do is laundry and maybe run the vacuum again. Enjoy the pictures of Brayden at the patch! Scrapbook too!!! Have books I need to finish!!!

Loving: The Fall time weather, the leaves changing, the smell of my Pumpkin Spice glade plug-ins, my Family.

Reading: Confessions of a Scary Mommy by: Jill Smokler - Laugh Out Loud funny, great read, highly recommend!! Getting ready to start Fifty Shades of Grey. (Yes I broke down and bought it, figured I'd give it a whirl)

Watching: Jersey Shore, The Voice, Mike & Molly, How I met your Mother, Big Bang, Two Broke Girls, The Office, Two and a Half Men, CSI, Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, The Dead Files Revisited (NO, not at the actual times they air, we record all and watch them when we can, busy life with work and a 2 year old)

Anticipating: Halloween, taking Brayden trick or treating for the 1st time ever. Hoping he'll enjoy dressing up and getting candy!! Our family friends are visiting this Saturday and then another the following Saturday, carving our pumpkins, making my pumpkin rolls.

Listening to: The only thing I listen to is Katie and Jared in the Morning on 1075KZL and then at work I play No Shoes Radio by Kenny Chesney.

Planning: Christmas gifts already. Almost done shopping for Brayden and a few others are finished. Only a few more to go!

Working On: Trying to finish my parents photo album of Brayden's 1st year.

Wishing: For a change in my life that MAY be happening. I'll be praying it pulls through. If it does it's an awesome change and will change my life for the good!! Please pray for me as well. Thank You!!!
