Whipped out the CDs

After Little Sister was out of diapers, I couldn't bring myself to get rid my cloth diaper stash. I have held onto them for 5 years, yes, I said it 5 YEARS. Every time I came across the rubbermaid with my stash in it, I just Ooohed and Aaahhed and then replaced the top and stored them away. Well, I decided this week to bust out the CDs and use them on LiL Man.

I will TOTALLY and gladly admit, I have MISSED having a baby in cloth diapers! There is just something special about that over-sized FLUFFY bum that sends warm fuzzy feelings up and down my body. Oh how I have missed them so. It was like reacquainting myself with an old friend.

I feel the need to do some Cloth Diaper research again. I mean, I've been out of the loop for 5 years, there has GOT to be new advancements in Cloth Diapers right? I feel like a giddy school girl, anxious and excited to see her crush in school.

This week has actually gone REALLY well.  All of the diapers that I have that are Gender Neutral are One Size Pockets and he is easily fitting into them at 5 months old, with plenty of room to grow. I had been having issued with him leaking and having horrible poo explosions with disposables,  and every time we have used the cloth diapers I am once again amazed that those issues just disappear. Oh how I have missed them so.

So for all those new mama's entering the world or cloth diapering or those that are re-entering it, like me, welcome to the club and its nice to share this experience once again!

If you have a moment, leave me a comment and tell me your FAVORITE cloth diaper brand. Are there any great new ones out there?

Have a beautiful day dear followers,

The Young Messiah

Have you ever wondered what Jesus was like as a child? Obviously, he was raised by Mary and Joseph, but what would it have been like to be Jesus' parents? 

Parenting isn't easy and I can only imagine the trials they went through as parents. 

March 11, 2016, a movie about young Jesus is being released, The Young Messiah.

Inspired by Scripture and rooted in history, The Young Messiah imagines a year in the boyhood of Jesus. Remaining true to the character of Jesus revealed in the Bible, this story is an inspirational story about the childhood of the Savior for the whole family.

When the mystery of Jesus’ divinity begins to unfold in His early years, He turns to His parents for answers. But Mary and Joseph, in an effort to protect their child, are afraid to reveal all they know. How do you explain the ways of the world to its Creator? How do you teach the Teacher? How do you help the Savior who came to save you?
Follow the young Messiah as He and His family take the extraordinary journey from Egypt to Nazareth and on to Jerusalem – where His true identity and profound destiny are revealed.
Check out  The Young Messiah “Parenting” featurette and leave a comment with how the holy family inspires YOU and what it means for family to support and protect each other.

Sound interesting to you? Me too!!!

Sooooo, with the help oRibbow Media Group I am offering my readers a chance to win 2 AMC Movie Tickets to see The Young Messiah! Each household is only eligible to win 2 AMC Movie Tickets via blog reviews and giveaways. Only one entrant per mailing address per giveaway. If you have won the same prize on another blog, you will not be eligible to win it again. Winner is subject to eligibility verification.

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

My sweet Lil Man is FIVE months old today! How did that happen? I don't know if it is because he is my last baby and I am trying to savor every moment of him being a baby or what but is seems like time is just FLYING. It seems like EVERYDAY he does something new, it is wild! With the girls I just don't remember them growing SO fast. Lil Man is Five months old and has mastered rolling. WHAT? Yes, rolling, which means I am in SO much trouble soon. After rolling comes crawling and after crawling comes WALKING! What am I going to do? I imagine he is going to be a lot like Little Sister and walk at an early age, he adores his Sisters and I just know he is itching to follow them around and join in on all their fun. I'm not going to lie though, I would be more than happy if he decides to wait as long as Big Sis did to walk. She was 13 months old before she took her first steps.

Oh the joys of being a MOM!

What are your little ones up to these days? Leave me a comment, I'd love to hear your stories!

Have a blessed day dear followers,

22 Minute Hard Corps

I posted this on my personal facebook page but want to share with my dear followers as well!
During the Super Bowl I had a rare opportunity to try out the newest workout program through Beachbody, 22 Minute Hard Corps, before it was released. I will spare you my silly video, it was definitely um, well, we'll just say interesting lol. However, despite it being out of my current workout level (I'll get there some day) there are several reasons why I LOVED it...
1) It was Challenging yet had a modifier so you could take it at a slower pace if needed but still keep moving.
2) Participants in the videos are real US Military Veterans, which totally rocks!
3) The workouts are only 22 minutes, hence the name 22 Minute Hard Corps, so totally doable with a busy schedule.
This PT style workout would be awesome for people who have experience and love FOCUS T25, P90X3, P90X, are looking for something challenging, prepping for Basic Training, are Veterans that still want to keep their military muscles, or those in physically demanding jobs like Police Officers and Fireman. And I'm not just saying this is great for men, I imagine it'd be great for ladies wanting to get toned and bikini ready for summer.
 I wanted you all to know about the deal they are offering new & existing customers and new Coaches until March 31,2016. You can get a free PT Sandbag, a $35 value, with the all-new 22 Minute Hard Corps and Shakeology Challenge Pack. With this Challenge Pack, customers will receive the 22 Minute Hard Corps fitness program, Shakeology, and a free 30-day trial membership to the Team Beachbody Club, plus the PT Sandbag – an easy-to-use training tool that helps sculpt and tone your entire body.
If you want to check it out or order you can check it out here:
OR comment on this post and I will send you a message and can go over any questions you may have!
OHHH OHHH OHHH and something SUPER cool that I found out the other day...
In celebration of the 22 Minute Hard Corps launch, Beachbody is partnering with "The Mission Continues" whose mission is to help empower veterans who are adjusting to life at home to find purpose through community impact. Veteran Fellows from The Mission Continues harness strength and skills learned in the military and apply them to volunteering with non-profits in their community. They're giving $5 for every 22 Minute Hard Corps Kit or Challenge Pack sold in March, up to $500K, which will go towards empowering up to 50 Fellows.

Blessings All Around

Welcome to March!

When I think of March, I get a tingling hope of Spring. This past week has given us a glimpse of Spring with new life. Two of our does freshened, each with a healthy set of twins.

 The first doe, Mary, one of my first two originals, freshened with a buck and doe. Ruby followed the next day with a beautiful set of twin does. Thankfully, I was able to be present for their births. Ruby did wonderful delivering her first doe, but the second one took her sweet time and then ended up being stuck in the wrong position. I had to reach in and rearrange her a bit so that she could make her grand entrance into the world. As nervous and impatient as I get around kidding season it also gives me feelings of joy, hope, wonder, amazement, and awe. I can't put into words how blessed I feel to witness these births and each time it is so special to me.

I am eager to for Spring to get here, as we have decided to once again raise a small flock of chickens for eggs and this year will dabble in raising meat rabbits as well. Our garden last year produced so much that I had wished I knew how to can. This year my goal is to do some research and learn to can so I can save our harvest and lower our grocery bill. I am also very excited for the apple trees to fill once again. I found an awesome recipe for apple pie last year and it tasted especially divine using our very own apples. We also have a cherry tree, which I didn't take advantage of last year but I hope to figure out something to do with the cherries as well.

What are your plans for Spring? Leave me a comment and tell me all about it, plus I'd love some tips about raising rabbits!

Have a wonderful day dear followers!

Busy Mom Breakfast

Hello Dear Followers,

 I am so glad to be back at writing again! I love being able to tell you what I'm up to. A couple posts back I told you about a couple Shakeology recipes I had tried. The key for me is definitely the frozen banana, it makes the shake thick and smooth just how I like it. 

It has been a lifesaver this past month and I don't know how I ever functioned without it! My energy level is so much better than it has been in such a long long time,

 Shakeology has become my Busy Mom Breakfast! 

 My shake takes literally a few minutes to whip up and I have a full healthy meal in a cup that I can take with me on the go . Is that not completely awesome or what? I have also been seriously impressed at how well it has upped my milk supply, which has helped me breastfeed my son even longer than I thought I'd be able to. With Big Sis, I stopped producing at 2 weeks. With Little Sister, I stopped producing at 1 month. Lil' Man is almost 4 months old and we are still going on strong! Talk about awesome! 

Another really cool thing that I have noticed as well, has been my resistance to colds. Since drinking Shakeology I haven't been sick, not once, not at all, not even a little! This is Cold Season, Big Sis brings home who knows what in the way of germs from school and I have stayed healthy. I am pretty sure that the nutrients in the shakes have helped boost my immune system, a side effect I am not complaining about at all!

I am now on my 2nd month of Shakeology, the first month I tried the Neopolitan Combo pack which included individual packs of Chocolate, Tropical Strawberry, and Vanilla flavored Shakeology. The Chocolate was a little too intense for me, but I loved both the Strawberry and Vanilla flavors. My girls have been extremely impressed with the Strawberry as well, they beg me for a cup ALL the time now. 

This month is my second month of using Shakeology, I am working on a Vanilla bag instead of the individual packs again. I think next month I may switch to the Tropical Strawberry bag, just to give myself a little change up. Changing flavors is super easy, Beachbody has a quick little form I submit before my order ships and they will change my monthly flavor to whichever one I choose. 

If your a busy mom that could use some extra energy and a quick healthy breakfast each morning, but no time to fix on for yourself, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED! Yes, I am shouting, and I'll do it again.

Have a wonderful day dear followers and Shake On :)

Disclaimer: Yes, I added a LOT of affiliate links. Yes, I did it on purpose. I want to encourage all my followers old and new to get healthy and give Shakeology a try! I do make money but it doesn't affect your orders if you choose to buy, it just helps me bring in a little income to help provide for my family :) Also, this post was meant to tell you how Shakeology has helped me, I wish I could guarantee it for you as well but I can not make those claims since I am a regular person and Shakeology has not been evaluated by the FDA.

Fitness Confession: 10 pounds down but at what cost?

It has been a month since I started my Cize & Shakeology Challenge Pack. I wasn't sure how it was going to go, I didn't know if I was doing the right thing, I felt guilty about taking care of me, but I was excited. I was excited I finally decided to take control of my life, my health, my fitness, for my family.

This excitement quickly diminished after the 2nd week. I was in pain. My body felt broken. I felt defeated. I didn't realize how much abuse I had put my body through until the pain came screaming back at me during each workout. I tried pressing on, no pain no gain right? But it got worse. I had to stop, I missed a day, then tried again... it was bearable so I did the workout again... next day I skipped... next day I skipped again... next day I could workout again. I felt like a failure like my body was completely betraying me. I wanted this to work so bad that failing this so soon was depressing.

It took me a couple days to realize that I wasn't failing. I was listening to my body and doing what I could. I was doing something, which was more than I had been for the past year. I was still drinking my Shakeology every day. I was still watching my portions every day, I just couldn't perform the workouts every day.

Thankfully, I had a check up with my doctor scheduled last week. I told him everything I was doing as well as my concerns. Evidently, exercise is the best thing I can do
right now. We discussed some options for the pain and I was sent home with a new outlook.

Failing would have been throwing in the towel and stopping everything. Failing would have been taking steps backwards instead of keeping the pace and trying to move forward. Failing would have been not seeking my doctor's advice. Failing would have been hiding behind the keyboard and keeping this confession to myself.

And despite it all when I stepped on the scale I was absolutely shocked that I had lost 10 pounds.10 pounds, just doing what I could do!

So today, this is my confession but it is also my hope that it becomes your inspiration. Keep it up and fight the fight. You are winning even when it feels like you are not. You are winning by just doing!

This experience has reminded me so much of what I need to do in my faith and my relationship with God. Some days I get so caught up in what I am not doing, what I should do, that I forget to remember what I have done and what I am capable of doing now even if there are things I can't do or that I don't know. God sees my efforts and knows my heart. I just have to keep up my fight for him and search for him.

Have a wonderful day dear followers!

My Journey Has Begun

Yes! My Cize and Shakeology Challenge Pack showed up just in time for me to start my fitness journey on January 1st! The Pack came on Dec. 31st and I was headed over to visit my Mom when I noticed the box on the porch. I decided to take it with me and check it out when I got there. When I arrived, I decided to pop in the first Cize dvd to see just what I got myself into. The first workout wasn't too bad, really easy pace, moves were demonstrated and explained well, and they gave you plenty of time to get the hang of it before moving on to the next move. My mom even liked it, she wants to schedule a day or two to dance.... I mean Cize, with me ;) So, to me, this is a winner!

I'm also so excited my mom got us a blender for Christmas because it made making the Shakeology shakes a piece of cake and yummy! I've been playing with it for the past three days.

Jan 1
I started out making a Strawberry Lemonade shake... Added Lemon Juice, a bit of Honey, Water, and Ice to my Strawberry Shakeology mix. To be completely honest, it wasn't great. I think I added too much water and ice, it watered it down and didn't taste that great, however it wasn't horrible and I drank the whole thing. To my surprise, I felt awesome. I had more energy than I've had in a long time. I took down our Christmas tree amd Christmas decorations, cleaned, reorganized, and vaccumed the living room with tons of energy to spare.

Jan 2
I decided to skip the ice and cut up and froze a banana and some blueberries instead. I added those to my water and Strawberry Shakeology mix and it turned out rather tasty. The shake was thick and creamy and delicious! I also had even more energy than the first day. I decided I wanted to move the girls' bedroom into the playroom, move our room into the girls' room, and move the playroom into our old room. I got everything done except vaccuming our old room and moving the girls' toys into it done.

Since I mastered the Strawberry shake combo I changed it up and went with Vanilla Shakeology mix, water, and a cut up and frozen banana. Amazing! I think I'm going to like having shakes for breakfast now! This new found energy is great, I woke up refreshed this AM and got out of bed easily. After church I was able to finish the remaining movement and cleaning to transistion  our old room into the playroom.

I probably could have done more, with all the extra energy I had but decided to hang out and spend time with the girls before Big Sister has to go to school tomorrow.

Have a blessed Sunday dear followers!
