So as I have mentioned I started working out and I have also tried to eat better. I refuse to go on a diet because that messes with my head and makes me want to eat more. But as you have heard before it is about changing your lifestyle and eating patterns so that is what I am trying to do. I have discovered there are a lot of smart moms out there with great blogs and they share their recipes. I know I am so behind the times. Sunday Baker is one of those and she has some great recipes as well as Moma and Baby Love. I made some homemade chicken nuggets and what I borrowed from her recipe was that she used parmesan in the crumb mix. I also added flax seed to give those well needed omega threes. Now I am not a nutritionist and I have been known for eat bad food until the cows come home but I am just trying to make a change for me and my kids. Anyway I digress the kids loved the chicken nuggets and I am going to try to make these and freeze them so that when we want chicken nuggets they are ready. Let’s face it the appeal to the chicken nugget is that it is convenient so I am going to try and make my health versions more convenient. I change up recipes like I change up decorating ideas. I just use what I have and make it work. I didn’t have almond flour and I looked for it in the store but it was really expensive. Her recipe was to be gluten free and I didn't need mine to be so I used some regular flour and bread crumbs the parmesan made them taste really good and we couldn't even taste the flax seed. Here is a pic and here is my recipe: Skinny Taste Happy Cooking!

This morning I worked out and I am very proud of myself. I have been getting some great workouts from a fellow blogger, http://lifeplusfitness.blogspot.com I did some of the arm workouts this morning she suggested and they kicked my butt. I am so hoping to keep it up. The rumors are true, I feel great when I work out, and I feel like it helps me combat my depression. Anyway I wanted to tell yall that I am going to be posting pictures of my house soon. I have always had a desire to own a home and was able to buy a home here in Nevada last year. There are so many things about my home that I love, but there are also so many things I would like to make better. I feel that the house you live in plays a part in your design decisions. So I look forward to showing you my new home and the projects I have in store. I am always looking for fun and inexpensive ways to decorate. Happy decorating and hope you all enjoy the pics look for them on the tab marked my home.

Revelation for the day, I have drunk more water today then I have in a long time. Did I have a big jug of water on my desk? No, I had a tiny little bottle of water because there were some left over from a party, an 8 oz size. So here is my thinking, I thought that there is a mental block for me when I have a big bottle because I think I will never get through it. Yes, I agree that if you just have water around then you will drink it, but just having the little bottle made it much more doable for me and less daunting. Also the added benefit of getting up and filling up the little cutie was helping me move and for those of you who have a desk job like me you know it is a good idea to get up and get moving. So here’s to happy drinking in little bottles, even though it’s just water, ha!
