Made the Leap to Wordpress!

I FINALlY made the leap from Blogger to Wordpress!! Well, since I basically slaughtered my blogger page (trying to update the layout), and lost ALL of my followers, music playlist, picture, Blog Roll and who knows what else, I decided this was the perfect time to make the switch over. Also, don't forget about my GIVEAWAY!! So, please if you were following me before or if you are new, please come and check me out- because as of now, I have no followers! Boo. Hoo.

Snikiddys for kids and for the kid in all of us!

Lookie what was on my doorstep- Thanks Mary! :D

Of course, we couldn't wait to dig into the NACHO Cheese puffs! We ALL (including the dog) loved them! Yum! Founded in 2006 by Janet Owings and Mary Schulman, a mother/daughter team with a shared passion for children’s health, Snikiddy® is a brand of great tasting, family-friendly snack foods made from simple, wholesome and real ingredients. Snikiddy has also been featured on The View- Elisabeth Hasselbeck promoted these snacks for her G-Free diet and Rachel Ray featured the Mac N Cheese Puffs as snack of the day. Visit and receive a $1 off coupon. ________________________________

We also tried the Pizza Puffs and boy they are so yummy!! They definitely tastes like pizza and melt in your mouth- I know a certain nephew (Austin) that would go crazy for these!! My nephew and niece are coming up next weekend (or is it this one?) and I am going to let them taste all of them and see what they think- I'll update once they try them all! The great thing about these Puffs are that they are made with REAL cheese ( I hate the artificial cheese- gross), 30% less fat & 20% fewer calories than other leading brands, Gluten & Wheat Free, No Preservatives, Low in Saturated Fat & cholesterol. What more can you ask for? _________________________________

Later on, we tried out all of the cookies- I promise you, there were NO complaints to be found, not a one! I have to say that my Favorite was the Oatmeal chocolate bites-I had to stop myself from eating the entire box too many! The hubby LOVED the chocolate chocolate and chocolate chip bites- there is maybe a handful left in each box now! Roscoe, our dog was begging of course, so we let him have an oatmeal since it seemed to have the least chocolate, which he proceeded to eat swallow quite happily. The great thing about these cookies are that they are made with whole wheat flour, real butter and unrefined cane sugar and a good source of whole grains and fiber- SERIOUSLY, where can you find cookies like that? I don't have kids but I will definitely be sharing these with some parents for their kids-I can't imagine any kids that wouldn't like these! And what is so great, is that you can practically find them EVERYWHERE! Whole Foods, Wegmans, even Toys R' Us and Amazon, and many more places!

Gym & A Giveaway!!

What do you think about this as a Giveaway??
would you want it? tell me what you think
2 months free- I am going to check this out TODAY!!
So yesterday was my first day back at the gym and they let me have the one day free- I loved working out again! I stayed at the gym for 3 hours in total working out and I did the sauna for about 25 minutes or so. I had a raw crunch bar while I was waiting on Reggie to pick me up- I'm not sure if I am signing up with Tony's yet because I have a 2 months free coupon at PT Gym which I can WALK to if I want! So I'm seriously thinking about it! Today I threw my tennis' in the wash- they need some SERIOUS help or I am going to look at getting a new pair soon. I have another review to do today then I need to start painting the dining room before I hit up the gym with Reggie this afternoon. I will catch up with you girls later!♥

Better than Wine!♥

Lookie what was on my doorstep this morning!!♥
Pom Wonderful + Daily Macrogreen powder = Pom & Water- loved it! There are antioxidants …and then there are ANTIOXIDANTS. Quite literally, some are better at neutralizing free radicals than others. Compare a glass of pomegranate juice and a glass of red wine. As for quantity, our tests found that ounce for ounce, pomegranate juice has 17% more polyphenol antioxidants than red wine. This not only suggests that pomegranate juice contains more polyphenol antioxidants than red wine, but also that each antioxidant molecule in pomegranate juice is more potent than the corresponding antioxidant molecule in red wine. POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice is the ONLY pomegranate juice backed by $25 million in medical research. Actually, we are the only pomegranate juice backed by any medical research at all.There has been a lot of talk lately about the role of pomegranates in promoting heart health, prostate health, and proper erectile function. But while these results are promising, keep in mind that all of the research has been done on POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice. Our juice comes from a unique pomegranate variety (the Wonderful), which is grown in a unique location (California), and which is juiced with proprietary technology (ours!). No other pomegranate juice can claim these distinctions, and no other brand has been clinically tested. ____________________________
I have to say that I loved the taste of Pom Wonderful- I tried it with my daily green powder and it definitely made it taste better! It's great with just water mixed in too! I think I will try it in a smoothie tomorrow- yum! :D
More good news. 100% Pomegranate Juice: contains NO added sugars, preservatives or colors is a good source of potassium is gluten free is flash pasteurized to retain both flavor and nutrients is certified kosher
A final word: maybe you’re on a diet (who isn’t?) and are worried about the calories and carbohydrates in pomegranate juice. Just remember that the carbohydrates are from naturally occurring fructose and glucose found in the fresh fruit. And that a single glass of delicious POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice won’t make you fat…but may help you be healthy. They have loads of great recipes for smoothies, mocktails, desserts, etc. so go check out !

Getting ready to meet my friend and hit up the gym! :D
I've been so busy lately with my To Do lists and errands, so this post is partly Tuesday and Today mixed. Yesterday I mowed the back lawn, made hair appt. for Wednesday, did TONS of laundy while I watched the Bachlorette- which I LOVED btw! I went walking with my friend for 2 hours, then Reggie and I hit up Lowes and got our paint for the den, then we went by his parents to pick up the veggies Mom had for me. We ended up eating dinner there- I had an avo + pest. free tomato + sea salt, couple handfuls raw brazil nuts and 4 fresh strawberries. Reggie had the squash casserole, green beans and red potatoes and cornbread- all fresh from the garden, fresh made.
Woke up at 7:20 today, had hair appt. at 9:00. When I got home I mowed the front lawn, made up our bed, did dishes, painted area in den, did MORE laundry, and made some more raw soup and raw Banana pudding- which btw if anyone would like the recipe, just ask! Now I'm going to take a nice bath so I can get ready to hit the gym! :D

Playing Catch up :D

My "To Do" List for Tuesday
Samples from Murad Ruby Tuesday's Coupons- sign up for So Connected and get Dining coupons! My Daily Green Juice Cocktail :D
Making more cashew milk/mixed w/rice milk
Making RAW Soup- YUM!
Raw bar for energy before working out
My first watermelon for this year- I LOVE Watermelon! :D
Reggie saw this recipe in Sam's booklets they were handing out,
so we went home and cooked it together
along w/organic oven roasted potatoes & mac & cheese
I really don't think he liked it very much...
then we watched Survivor Finale & Reunion-gotta say I LOVE that my good ole' southern boy JT won BOTH the million & sprint fave!! I was so happy for him! :D
had a cup of OG Yerba Mate & rest of the Koka Moka ProBar while I watched
Got snacky- shouldn't have...but ate this teeny bag of chips- they were super yum!
So, Monday I was pretty busy which is why I am posting today. I did the dishes, stripped the beds, put some things away in the attic, started to mow the grass-but didn't have time because it was time to meet my friend to go work out. We power walked for 2 hours and afterward, Reggie picked me up and we went to Sam's and got a few groceries then headed home. Reggie saw a recipe that he wanted to try out, so we both cooked up a nice din. together- it was definitely a "MAN'S" Meal- not something that I would eat. I had some raw avo soup that I had made earlier for lunch- I had it for din also- very good! I FINALLY got some ECOS Laundry detergent from Sam's- the laundry was really starting to pile up! So last night, I put a load on as soon as we got home! On to another subject, I seriously am thinking of rejoining the gym- I REALLY miss working out with the weights, spin class, aerobics- I definitely need that type of environment to push myself- I am going with my friend on Wednesday and I am really thinking about signing up! :D
