New Coke coupon

Be sure to HURRY and print this awesome COKE coupon HERE . It's $1.00 off the purchase of any 2 - 20ox Coca Cola products. I'm sure they'll go fast.

We were able to snag some completely awesome Coke deals at our local Piggly Wiggly today! We got 3 - 20pk Coke's for $2.27!!! They were on sale for $3.27 each, plus I had a $1.00 off coupon. That makes the Coke's only .11 per can! Needless to say we were pretty happy with this deal! :)

Join me....

On my journey to get healthy :)

I don't know why I've put this off for so long. I've completely let myself go :( I've been looking at a picture of me taken at a family reunion a couple of years ago, and to be honest, I'm so ashamed of what I've become.

I guess when my Dear Husband and I bought a scale a couple of weeks ago, that was the end-all for me. I knew I had gained even more weight, but was so depressed when I actually got on the scale and saw that BIG NUMBER! ARG!

(Oh yea, that's me, the picture of the pig on the scale! LOL!)

Anywho, I'm starting my journey. Do you want to hop on for a ride as well?

I've done Zumba for Wii the last three days, and I can tell you, I'm already noticing a difference.

This is really a VERY FUN, LOW IMPACT, aerobic workout! I love the latin music and the ability to be able to do it AT HOME, with no one laughing at me (ah-hem, my children to be exact!). It's a good thing I can laugh at myself! I've started off gradually (beginner 20 minute workout, Zumba Class), but I've already advanced to the next beginner level (2, instead of 1! LOL!) on my next work out, which will be tomorrow. I've also walked 2 times at night (the long walk, 3.3 miles, will be tonight with a sweet friend of mine!), so I'm mixing things up a bit.

Yes, I'm eating, not starving! I've just made my mind up that the oooey, gooey chocolate and sweets that I love so much are going to be VERY FEW AND FAR BETWEEN! (Although, I'm being a good Mom and eating the two boxes of Whitman's that the kids gave me for Mother's Day, but only 2 pieces a day!) Yoplait yogurt and fruit have taken the place of them. And to be honest, the yogurt, with names like Key Lime Pie, Boston Creme pie, Strawberry Shortcake, Banana pudding (you get the picture), are such a good sweet in itself, that I don't feel like I'm missing out on much!

I weighed myself, took my measurements and have started a journal. Hopefully small baby-steps will help in my overall journey to a healthier me! Come along, we can be good company for each other !:)

Salmon Patties.......

Wish I would have taken a picture of these before they flew off the plate! My kids LOVE these and request them often! It's a super simple recipe....ENJOY!

Salmon Patties

1 Can of Salmon
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I make my own)
1 tbps parsley
1 tbps worchestershire
1 tsp crystal hot sauce
1/4 tsp pepper
1 egg

1 cup fine corn meal (or flour)
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup oil or 1/4 cup EVOO

Mix first 7 ingredients with your hands (my daughter LOVES to do this!), then pat out whatever size patty you would like. Refridgerate for 20 minutes. Dredge in cornmeal or flour, then cook in butter/oil over medium high heat for about 4 minutes on each side.

I usually serve these with french fries or tater tots and a salad. Great quick meal for those nights that you're on-the-go! Bon Appetite

Free Yoplait

Go HERE to get your free cup of Yoplait Yogurt! Just fill out the form and you'll get your free coupon in the mail in a couple of weeks. I LOVE YOPLAIT! I'm really trying to watch my weight, so having all of these yummy flavors really helps. Even though I'm having "Red Velvet Cake", "Key Lime Pie", "Cinnamon Roll", it's only 100 calories and is a great 'tweener' snack! I don't feel so guilty and am getting something sweet to boot!

Fabric bandaids

Look how cute these fabric band aids are! Toni over at Design Dazzle has a great idea for "chic-ing" up the tired ol' bandaids......I'd love to make these, and they are so simple. I think once I do tho', Miss M will mysteriously have cuts show up that need a cool new bandaid!

These would be great for our teen/tween girls with peace sign fabric on them.....what about Dr. Suess fabric for little ones? Super COOL sports fabrics for the boys? The possiblities are endless! Let me know if you do this and send me pictures!
