                         How do your survive the Turkey day? And not go all out and binge eat......

It is difficult for me! All the yumminess right there in front of your face. It is so good Every year I think I will do fine this time and then I go back for seconds. 

This year I am only going to take very small helpings and then absolutely no seconds!!
I think once I am done eating I am going to leave the table and not be tempted!
I am determined to not gain weight over this Thanksgiving!

I am also going to be working out everyday to help with the calories!

Well I did it a couple of months ago and signed up to be a Beachbody Coach!! I had sampled a friend's Shakeology and loved it! I finally bit the bullet!

I have been drinking it this last week and it has helped with my cravings.  I still eat 3 meals a day and 2 snacks, only one of the snacks is Shakeo! I am down 3.8 lbs this week!!

I also love their workouts! T25 is my favorite! I am loving only needing 25 minutes a day to get such a great workout in!  I am going to start a challenge group on December 2nd on Facebook or if you need it my email let me know!!

Beachbody right now has a great promo going on...

Check it out and let me know if I can help or you need any info....

and here is the website:

Go and check it out and we can find the perfect challenge pack for you!

Urban Dictionary
The woman who loves you unconditionally from birth, the one who puts her kids before herself and the one who you can always count on above everyone else.

Just telling her your problems makes you feel better because mom's always know how to make it all go away.

Even if you fight, know that she's just looking out for your best interests.

I watch the video below today and it got me thinking about my wonderful mother, Pam, she is truly a blessing to my life.  Yes there are things that drive me crazy about her but if I sat down and wrote it all out there are by far more things that I love about her than drive me crazy. 

But after watching this video and knowing that I would state the negative also, I know my mother does. But what she doesn't know it that I think she is a strong person, stronger than I am, she is dependable all the time to watch my kids, she is loving, great listener, she might be opinionated but I love that even though I don't always agree, she is loyal to us girls, she always stands up for us. I love my mom and wouldn't want anyone else to call my mom!

You might need tissues for this!

Farmer's Wife

I joke at times and say "What was I thinking when I married a Farmer!"
But in all actuality I wouldn't want it any other way!

My hubs is a hard worker and knows the farming way!
I do not believe that he will ever stop farming.

I will forever deal with the late nights in the field
Working all weekend
Calving Season
Mudding boots, Mudding clothes
Spending my Saturdays, helping work cattle
Smashing my fingers in the gates

I am very cranky at times, when I get home from work,
I start supper, laundry, help with homework, fold laundry, clean up supper,
read bed time stories, do more laundry, get things ready for the next day....
All while he sits in the recliner, on the laptop, watching his shows.
I know the majority of the time, he is on the laptop researching something for the farm, 
looking for machinery, etc.
But there are times, when he decides he will cook supper (and I will say it is always good food)
He takes our boys to the farm with him.
He makes them help some too. 

It is frustrating, but I know he works outside all day, never stops or slows down.
He doesn't get Saturday or Sunday completely off. 
He still has to check the cattle and feed them. 

I know when we are old and gray and sitting on our front porch, we will still be in the country and looking at our cattle in the pasture!
And I know I will never regret marrying a farmer!

Photo Dump Friday

It's me again...

I have been so super busy with work, starting up my new business venture with Beachbody (super excited about this!) and life....

I have got to start making time for myself in this crazy life of mine... Time for my workouts, time for my blog and time to breathe.  Lately we have been on fast forward and I am ready to slow it down to just play for a while. But what am I thinking the Holidays are approaching quickly and that is never a good sign for slowing down!

I am going to be starting an accountability group on November 4th and will have meal plans for the first 5 days and for T25.  I love this workout video but am terrible and keeping to it. So ladies anyone interested hit me up... Leave a comment or email me at  We can get you set up with a challenge pack from Beachbody.  I am love with the Shakeology from Beach Body also! Yummy! You do not have to be doing T25 but just some kind of exercise workout for 30 days.  There are tons of challenge packs on Beachbody or at the store. Check it out at I will start a facebook page also!

So on a different note, here are some pics for my Photo Dump!!

Workout and Gardening

I did get in a mile on the bicycle, 1/2 mile on treadmill and some abs today. I did not get up this morning again.  But then again I have an excuse or so I tell myself it is a good excuse, I was up until 11:45 canning whole tomatoes.

I also went way over on my calorie intake yesterday.  But today is a new day and I plan on sticking to the amount I have allotted.  For supper we are having steak fajitas.

I know today is a new day but I have got to quit saying that everyday.  I need to start watching what I eat daily and really taking care of myself and watching what I put in my mouth.

I really want Brach's candy corn, but I did not go buy a bag today.... They are absolutely my favorite!

I garden I love to garden and can all my produce.  But I must say I am tired of canning at this point and ready to be done.  I have 97 quarts of green beans, 24 pints, I have potatoes, applesauce, apple pie filling, peach pie filling, cherry pie filling, vegetable soup, tomatoes, salsa, tomato juice, pickles, apple butter, chicken, need to tomato soup and one more batch of salsa.  Then I have corn, green beans, and peppers in the freezer. So to say that my nights are super busy with my garden is an understatement.  Hoping once I am done, I will get some walks in the evening with my boys before it gets too cold out.  Then hopefully workout inside at night!

Well I can barely walk today after leg day yesterday!!! Which is a great thing! Means it is working and waking those muscles up.

I talked to the fitness guru at our gym about calories and told him I was doing 1200 a day and that was just not enough and he said no it is not. So I have upped them to 1500 a day and that is so much better.

I did not get yesterday or today and do T25. I am for sure starting next Monday.  It is my goal.

I did eat after 8 like I said I would not.

I did go over the 1500 calories by 54.

I did not get anymore walking in yesterday. But I went up my stairs a dozen times and cleaned my basement. So I am going to count that.

Today..... I am not going to eat after 8:30!! Will walk when we get home!! All of us. minus hubs he is in the field.  I did arm day at the gym!!

This I pledge to anyone who reads my blog!! Hold me accountable.... Email me......

Peace  Out
