A special day at School - Getting Fit

Today was a Special day at our Elementary School.
Our Sponsored Walk-A-Thon in which each grade gets 40 minutes to walk the bus circle (as many laps as they can walking). They asked family and friends to sponsor them for the laps. It's essentially a fundraiser for the school but the kids think it's a fun get-fit day. I was excited because even though my boys are several grades apart, their times were back to back.
Ozzie the Osprey (our mascot) was there for support today!

I am a #Shaklee180 Blogger (in March) YAY !!!

I am very excited !!
Over 450 bloggers applied to be a part of a 6 month Shaklee 180 program.
I was one of 90 chosen !!
I can't wait to begin this program and share my results with you!
I am looking forward to the beginning of March
photocredit: photobucket
 I am in need of a minimum of 30 pounds off to feel better physically about my appearance. I would guess that if I lost 45-50 pounds, I would be a very happy woman!
My weight right now is (gulp) 212, which sounds big to me. It was the weight when I gave birth to my 1st son, and just 15 pounds less than when I gave birth to my 3rd son.
I lost both of my parents when they were still young.

My Primary Care Physician has been on my to lose weight for several years.
I am very excited and hopeful. I need to change my life so that I am here for my children, and that unlike my parents, live to see any grandchildren!
This is a sponsored post as part of the Shaklee Corporation blogger program. I have received free products, online support and incentives for participating. My opinions are my own.  People following the weight-loss portion of the Shaklee 180™ Program can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week.

My skin is in heaven with #NIVEA #CBias

While the winter here in Central Florida is very similar to Summer in other parts of the country, we've been battling some whipping winds that wreak havoc on our skin. Plus, with the sun beating down on us everyday, our skin dries out quickly.

I love the NIVEA Essentially Enriched Daily Lotion.

I don't like lotions that leave my skin feeling oily minutes or even hours after they are applied, so it's a lot of trial an error with me. I am grateful NIVEA is one of those lotions!

The NIVEA lotion scent reminds me of baby lotion, so putting this on my body just soothes my body like nothing else. My skin feels hydrated and soft.

I purchased this 16.9 FL OZ bottle as part of a 2 pack from Sam's Club.

I've kept both bottles because I we go through so much lotion.
I have one bottle in each of the bathrooms in my house.


This lotion works wonders on my Anthony and his skin. I think NIVEA on his back may become a nightly routine!

Check out my trip to Sam's Club via my Google+ Album !!

Excited about a new Craft Project for Scouts

This coming weekend, our Pack will celebrate the Birthday of the Boy Scouts.

Each Den is to create a craft. We are making some posterboards with Cub Scout items, mottos, etc, but we are also creating an item to raffle off.

Our Den is going to create a smaller version of this Candy Bar cake.
We'll end up with 2 smaller versions.
This is our base for our version of the "cake".
I have yet to purchase the candy as well, so that may differ also.
I cannot wait until Thursday to see how the boys decorate the "cake"
