One 2012 Goal-Weightloss!!!

So I have figured out in more detail my goals for fitness.  I have some great motivations for the year which include 1. a wedding in June that I will be a bridesmaid and 2. my 10 year class reunion will be sometime this year.  So it is easy since I want to look great for those 2 things.  The other motivation I have is within my family.  Today my dad, sister, hubby, and I each weighed in.  We each wrote down our goal weights.  We will weigh in each week and if we gain weight we have to put money in the pot.  At the end of the year we will decide what to do with the cash... probably a family dinner thing.  

So I am going to do my goals in 3 steps with 3 great motivators on top of the ones already mentioned.  

My start weight is 130 and my goal weight is 115.  After I loose the first 5 pounds I am going to go get my hair done (cut n color), at ten pounds I am going to get a pedicure, and at 15 pounds I want a night in a hotel with only my hubby no kids allowed.  3 great motivators for me!  :)  Also if I lose 15 pounds I am sure some clothes shopping will be included!  :) :)  
I should have a few more goals posted later this week.  Still thinking about each one.  :) Since I do Christmas at my dad's over New Years I need some time after to get a game plan.  :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
