.I know this works for everyone but gosh I measure 3 times and still get it wrong. Maybe I need a tutor or someone to invent an automatic
Good behavior chart: I find this is the best and most effective way to recognize my girls for good behavior or doing required chores. Any time a catch them using manners, getting ready for bed without asking, being nice to each other, feeding animals etc. I drop a bead in their jar. They can hear the bead if I drop it from a distance so they know instantly that someone did something right. They get $3 when the jar is full. It works wonders and seriously worth the weeks of bead drops. I al...
Fried Ice Cream Dessert: "I came across this recipe...It looked easy enough so I made it one weekend. OH...MY...GOSH!!! It tastes JUST like the fried ice cream you'd get at the restaurant. I've made it for work friends, family get-togethers, etc. It will be the dish that everyone wants you to bring to everything - and bring a copy of the recipe because otherwise you'll be repeating it 75 times."~blogger
I have had this encounter a couple of times and trying to explain in the moment while helping calm your child never works. As parents of autistic children, we have all heard someone tell us, "That can't be true." When we describe some of the things that our children go through. There is no time trying to make someone a believer or understand what is happening when you need to focus on your child.
An abdominal workout from Pilates boot camp, my tummy hurts just looking at it, I bet it works too. I figure it’s worth a shot, some of you try it with me and let me know the results. Almost everyone I know wants to get rid of “baby tummy” or a “beer belly,” these exercises should fix that!
OH MY GOOOODNESSSS......HOW FITTING FOR SOMEONE I KNOW!!! CHANGE YOUR MEDS... BUY A JOURNAL.. AND GET OFF FACEBOOK!!! NOBODY GIVES A FLYING FCK ABOUT YOUR DRAMA!!

Another pinner said: I will need to try this... Swarms of Mosquitoes on my patio led me to an old home remedy - Did you know that chopped up garlic makes mosquitoes disappear? I buy minced, dried garlic at local Fiesta grocery stores and sprinkle it around on my patio. I have to stand back as I am using it - mosquitoes will literally swarm out of your plants and bushes to get away from the smell. Works like a charm!!
Vegetarian forms of protein. It drives me crazy when people worry about me not getting enough protein from being a vegetarian (I do still eat seafood), but the truth is that the SAD (standard American diet) is OVERLOADED with protein!! Multiply your weight times .36 and that's how many grams of protein you need. I usually have 1/3 of my daily amount by breakfast, alone.
Promised myself I would post my results online to keep me motivated. So here it is. This summer (may) I was determined to look as fit as I felt. I was weighing in at 168, the worst shape and the biggest I have ever been. I told myself I would not hit 170 and to start getting my butt in gear. I started working out on my own at my school gym with @Nora Viveen and eventually found a personal trainer with my bestfriend #meganferguson. I ended up gaining weight a little bit while I was with him and realized it was too expensive to move forward when i saw no results. When July hit myself and megan thought we would try out Limitless Preformance (@limitlesspreformance kitchener ) as you probably know i am in love with this gym. We started going 3 times a week and even than I started see amazing results. I felt stronger, faster, thinner and healthier because I got excited to eat right and work out. In august when megan went off to school I started to become a regular. No matter what day I was at limitless. I felt like a family and it never felt like a chore to ever work out as hard as I did. I pushed myself and all the older guys too ;) I am currently weighing in at 148 and continuing to eat healthy and work out as much as I can. I know I'm not the skinniest but that wasn't my goal. I am proud of myself and my results. Thank you to everyone who supported me, pushed me, and didn't believe in me
Homemade Laundry Detergent:: 1 Quart Boiling water 1 Bar Fels-Naptha soap finely grated 3 Cups borax 3 Cups washing soda 1 Gain scent booster 1 Liquid oxi clean stain fighter, I used the liquid refill bottle that you spray your stains with although the powder is fine to use also! 1 Large pail, bucket, etc. To hold the finished detergent.( I use a clear tub that has a lid and is a file container) Add 1 Quart water to medium sized pot, place on stove over med-high heat to bring to a boil. Meanwhile grate the bar of fels naptha soad onto a plate, set aside while water comes to a boil. In a large mixing bowl add 3 C. Borax, 3 C. Washing soda, half of the gain scent boosters, and half of the oxi clean. When water comes to a boil pour in the grated soap and stir until melted. When its conpletely melted pour the water/Soap mixture into the bowl with your other Ingredients and stir well to mix. Pour everything In the bowl into your large pail, bucket, container, or whatever your using to store It In. Then pour in 2 Gallons of hot water. Stir to mix it all up then your done! They say its best to let It sit 24 Hrs before using but ive broken this rule several times and It still works. I take my old laundry bottle and a funnel and pour It in to fill my bottle up. shake well before each use! This ensures that everything is mixed properly before use! I do this two times to use all of my gain and oxiclean and consider It one batch! Ive tried doubling It and doing It all at one time but it didnt turn out right at all so I broke it down into doing two batches. Apprx. 5 Gallons of detergent and use 1/4C per load.
When I have time...
Hey all,My name is Jenn… I’m the creator of the “Big Is Beauty Project” on Youtube.I took this picture about a year ago, right after I had surgery.I took it to prove a point. If someone of say, a size 2 were to have taken this picture - it would be beautiful and artistic. If someone of my size takes a picture like this, nothing but negative comments are written about it. Is this right? No. It’s not. Who are you to tell me I can’t be beautiful and artistic? Don’t be afraid of what others have to say. If you like your body and want to share it with the world - GO RIGHT AHEAD!!!!Get to know someone before you judge them. You have no right making other people feel like crap just because you don’t like the way they look.I struggled with body image my entire life, and just recently over the past few years have come to terms with the size of my body. It is possible to love your body, yet hate it at the same time. But, when the hate starts overpowering the love - you need to make a change. You can either try and change how you look, and transform your body into something that you’ll adore… Or, you can learn to accept and love the body that life has given you. You’ll never be perfect. Nobody is perfect. Nobody can say that they love absolutely everything about themselves. Learn to take something negative, and change it into something positive.t’s okay to be fat. Just as it’s okay to be skinny, white, black, gay, bisexual, straight, whatever. You’re you, and you are beautiful no matter what.Everybody is different, every body is different.[Exerpts from my blog; http://missbigbeauty.tumblr.com]BE BRAVE! JOIN THE REVOLUTION!
FITness NOT THINness
25 Manners Kids Should Know #1: When asking for something, say "Please." #2: When receiving something, say "Thank you." #3: Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency. They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking. #4: If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation. #5: When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later. #6: The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults. #7: Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome. #8: When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are. #9: When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had. #10: Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering. #11: When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling. #12: Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect. #13: Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant. #14: Don't call people mean names. #15: Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel. #16: Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best. #17: If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me." #18: Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public. #19: As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else. #20: If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new. #21: When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile. #22: When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again. This is especially true with teachers! #23: Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do. #24: Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary. #25: Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed.
