Weight Loss Website

I have heard that this site can help you with weight loss. It looks really cool. The site is Sparkpeople, and the biggest way it works is just by making you mindful of what you are doing. It has nutrition and fitness trackers, and it makes it very easy to use. You can keep track of all the dietary info, such as how much calcium or sodium a certain food has. It has meal plans available, and you can search for certain foods- not just something like “soup” but “Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup”. Also, if you don’t have a nutritionist or trainer, it can figure out a meal plan and fitness routine for you. It will also tell you how many calories you need per day, etc.
It’s incredibly useful, and it works well with any diet plan out there that you may already be using. See, their philosophy is not to tell you how to lose the weight, but to help you track everything .

Best part- it’s completely free. No cost at all.

I can't wait to start TOMORROW with tracking what I eat! Hopefully this will help someone else!

OMG where does the time go?? I feel like there is never a free moment ever!! I did, however, make time to make these cutie valentines chocolate boxes for my friends. They are the perfect size to hold 3 Ghirardelli chocolates. I found the inspiration and instructions for making this box here on ChiChi Allen's Blog. She provided great instructions for creating the box which was really simple and fun to make!

Stamps: Polka Dots and Paisley
Ink: Tempting Turquoise (marker), Only Orange (marker), Pixie Pink (marker), & Basic Black
Paper: Kraft & Whisper White
I just used the template from ChiChi's Blog and stuck everything together with Mono Adhesive.

Hopefully I will find the time to post more frequently than once a month! We will see how it goes. Until next time...
