Reading Trim Healthy Mama

Reading Trim Healthy Mama I’m still reading my digital copy of Trim Healthy Mama. I am encouraged and inspired. I need more hours in my day just to read it. So, here I am in bed, at 8pm on a Sunday night, getting ready to read as much as I can before I fall asleep. My goal is to have the majority of the book read by the time we get groceries on the 20th. That gives me a week and a bit to fit in 600 more pages of reading before I need to write a grocery list and …

First Impressions

  First Impressions My print copy of Trim Healthy Mama is in the mail, but I realized last night that I could purchase a digital copy and read while I am waiting. The thought of only working off a digital copy for highlighting, underling, and scrolling for recipes was why I purchased paper copy (I opted for hardcover), but there was no reason why I could not purchase a digital copy to just “read” and get familiar with the whole concept. I went and purchased the download directly from Trim Healthy Mama (they have a ton of different options). Then …

Trim Healthy Mama

I ordered a print copy of Trim Healthy Mama from Christianbook.com! It should arrive early next week. I got so excited about the possibility of change (while writing this post) that I went and purchased a PDF copy too, so I can get started reading right away. Okay, are you ready? So, let’s be honest. I am overweight. Very overweight. I know that. The last time I started to work on my weight and was actually making some progress, I got pregnant with twins (they will turn 6 this year). Instead of continuing to work on my weight during their …

Where is Sochi?

While I have been to Russia, I must admit that I had never even heard of Sochi before. I got curious today and had to see just how far away St. Petersburg (where I lived) was from Sochi. Well, it is quite far. I took a screen shot of the Google Map showing the difference. Where is Sochi? The first time I went to Russia, I had the pleasure of visiting Moscow with my family and also travelling by train to St. Petersburg (and back to Moscow). The second time I went to Russia, I stayed in St. Petersburg and …

Winter Park Fun

Daddy took the 4 younger kids on a walk to the park. It was a cold day, but not too cold. The kids ran races across the field, climbed on rocks, played on the playground, and explored until they were exhausted. It was a fun day for all.

It is snowing…

It has been snowing since we got up this morning and now the snow is sticking. It is so pretty. Hosanna ran around the house singing, “It’s Christmas, it’s Christmas,” which led to a discussion about the difference between Christmas and winter. This afternoon a few of my kids ran outside without coats, threw a few mini snowballs, and quickly realized they were cold. Then came the complaints that there was not enough snow to do anything with. And poof, before you know it, all the snow is gone. (PS – These were the only pictures that didn’t have cousins in …
