We toured the Grand Canyon, the strip in Vegas, and Red Rock Canyon! It is amazing how even if we have not seen or talked to each other in a long time we get together and it is like no time has passed! I love it! Here are some pics from our excursions!

Sad days on the Homestead!

Ok, Anyone who knows me knows I would love to live in the middle of no where and have a farm. Since, that has not happened I make due. I plant my garden every year and I have chickens. My chickens are like my pride and joy! I have Buff Orpingtons! They are just so darn cute! Anywho, Everyone knows how crazy our weather has been! Like nuts! So, a couple of chickens ended up with a type of chicken pneumonia! EEEKKK! I lost 2 hens and a rooster. Then, yesterday low and behold another down! So now I have lost a total of 3 hens and a rooster! I am praying that the sickness has been contained and no more of my sweets get sick! Here is a pic of my sweet ones!

Also, I am finishing up my free Clean Eating Challenge and will be starting another challenge called 21 Days to Awesome! If you are ready to start eating good and exercising you should join us on this challenge! Just email me at mhtsmith@bellsouth.net for more details! Till next time have a blessed day!

Day 1 again!!

As I told you in my last post I am going to tell you about my 21 Day Fix Journey. Yesterday, I finished my 1st 21 Day Fix Challenge. Today, I am starting over! I know a lot of people say ugh! I can't diet! I am always so hungry or my family won't eat that! Well I am here to tell you this is different! It is not a diet it is a way of life. A way to eat healthier for not only you but your whole family. There are TONS of recipes on Pinterest for the 21 Day Fix! A lot of them are for the crockpot for us busy moms. Also, I have some of the pickiest eaters around and they love these meals. For example, Today, I had 2 scrambled eggs with spinach and 3 pieces of bacon. For a snack, I had my Shakeology shake with a banana and peanut butter. Lunch, I had a wrap with lettuce, turkey, and dressing. For another snack, I had some grapes. For supper, I had beef tacos! So, now tell me you will be hungry or your family won't eat this way! lol! The workouts are amazing too. Now, having a rod in my back I do have to modify some things. But, it is ok as long as you keep moving and try the best you can. You will see results. Tomorrow, I will post my before and after pics from my first 21 Day Fix Challenge. Tell then have a great and blessed day.

New Beginning! New Me!

I know it has been like a long time! eeekkkk! What can I say I let life get the best of me. But, I just had to tell you about my new beginning. You see I have struggled with health problems since I was young! I hate it. My sons have also suffered with things like allergies and asthma. My husband wasn't any stranger to the roller coaster of bad health either. I was sick and tired of all of us being sick and tired. I have tried so many things in an effort to get healthy and stay that way. About a month ago, I joined this online clean eating challenge. Hey it was free and we can all eat healthier! So I did it. Needless to say it changed me. I wanted more. With that being said I ordered the 21 Day Fix and Shakeology! Oh my goodness! Shakeology is like the best thing since sliced bread! lol! It has so many superfoods in it! I researched everything in it and was just so amazed! I then became a Beachbody Coach. I wanted to help others find what I had found and hopefully get healthy and fit! I am going to be posting my journey through this on this blog along with my homesteading things! If you are interested in joining me on this journey you can email me at mhtsmith@bellsouth.net. Till next time have a blessed week!
