The big E

I'm impatiently waiting for Christian to be done with his workout. To pass the time I figured I am due for another blog post...this time with pictures of the kids. I took some pictures of them last week in their Easter outfits and for a not-so-great-at-photography-person I think they turned out okay... I wish Ava would smile as easily as Spencer does. These smiles were FAKE and I only got them because I bribed her with "Princess Soup"! Comes with being three I guess!? Anyway, this was such a fun photo shoot and a good learning experience. Does anyone know of any good photo editing programs that aren't too expensive?

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Our day started with green eggs, 'rainbow' cereal, and green milk...and of course served with green dishes! Later we are off to the park for a St. Patrick's party filled with green food and a leprechaun scavenger hunt! To top it off the weather will be PERFECT! I'm excited to get our day going...OUTSIDE!

My Fitness Pal

MyFitnessPal is so simple and I can't figure out why it is so motivational...I can't put my finger on exactly why it is working for me and a lot of other people. Maybe it's the fact that my friends and family that are doing it also can see my progress...they can see if I stay below my calorie intake goal and if I am losing weight. It's so cool cause not only does it count calories but it shows you the sodium, sugars, cholesterol, vitamins, potassium, etc in the food your eating. So now I can look at a food and say, "That is really high in sodium so I'm going to pass on that" and that results in weight loss!

The point of this blog post is to invite ALL of you to join My Fitness Pal. It really works and I think it helps to have friends and family doing it with you! If you do join look for 'cocacole77' and request me as a friend!
