Nothing beats a failure but a try – (Thanks Mama)


Failure is not an option

15 Foods that boost Metabolism

Losing weight and getting healthy is typically every one’s New Year’s resolution, I know it’s mine. 


Sometimes it’s easier said then done. We start out with good intentions and somewhere along the line we falter.Not because we’re weak, because we’re bored.


This is the year I want everyone to make their resolution happen.


If it’s boring change it.If it’s to difficult start slow and take baby steps.


It’s all up to you.  Only you can change what needs to be changed.


Take the bull by the horns and lead him in the direction of health and happiness.


You know you can do it.  Please comment below with your stories.  I’d love to hear them.

New year glitter comments, animated newyear gif scraps, happy new year wishes


The New Year is another chance to start fresh, make resolutions and try new things. Our hopes are high and our intentions good.

Our resolutions should be reasonable, in the short term and obtainable but require some effort. Once you have reached your initial short term goal, set another.

Now is the time to make the commitment. Resolutions serve as excellent tools to keep you focused, organized and motivated.

Create a plan of action to achieve your goal(s). Putting it to pen and paper is very beneficial.

If you find yourself straying or have already strayed, don’t give up! Accept it and move on. We all stumble.

Be patient! It takes hard work and dedication, no matter what the goal is.

Good luck and let me know how you’re doing.

Happy New Year Everyone!!

National Barbecue Month

May is National Barbecue Month, like we need a reason to BBQ.
The unofficial beginning of summer is here. Everyone should be getting their BBQ’s clean and ready, BBQ utensils out of the shed and finding those meats on sale to freeze for upcoming BBQ’s.

I can’t wait until I smell the scent of BBQ in the air, one of my fav’s.

BBQ’ing adds a flavor you just can’t be replicated in an oven or on a counter top grill. Not to mention the calories saved by BBQ’ing. The range of items you can BBQ goes beyond the hamburger, your only limited by your imagination. BBQ til your hearts content.

Americans say the top pay-offs of grilling versus eating out or oven cooked meals include:

  • More flavorful food (81 percent of respondents)
  • Inexpensive compared to eating out (76 percent of respondents)
  • Easier clean up (67 percent of respondents)
  •             Easy Grilling Clean Up Tips

  • Healthier (64 percent of respondents)
  • Less cooking time (53 percent of respondents)
    In California we have the Tri-tip, the perfect cut of meat for the BBQ. Everyone should be able to enjoy this cut of meat so I will post information on this in the next couple of days. e of days.
    This month look for bbq and grilling how to info, daily BBQ recipes on anything from recipes for BBQ sauce to desserts.
    I can taste the lemonade now, ahhhh.

    Let’s get started

    If you’re like me your New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. For some reason I keep telling myself I’ll start tomorrow.
    Well if I don’t start now tomorrow will never come.

    I have a friend who went on a diet and lost 72 lbs. It wasn’t immediate but it was fast, 5 months. She lost it by good old diet and exercise.
    She chose an exercise that was fun and would not get boring.

    She did it all with  The Firm: Express (With Fitness Guide and 4-Day Kick Start Plan)

    Power through the excuses!  Start now.
