All I need to know I learned from my six-year-old

Here are some great things that I have thought about lately after watching my SUPER sweet daughter grow from a chubby toddler to a very lean six-year-old. You could call this the six-year-old's diet plan and I think we could all learn something from it:

1. Never stop moving
2. Eat when you are hungry
3. Stop eating when you are full
4. riding your bike=fun
5. If you have the choice between walking somwhere and riding there in a car...always pick the walk
6. Parks are for running, climbing, and swinging....not for sitting on a bench
7. Dance your way through life
8. Real beauty comes from the inside
9. Nothing matters less than the size of your pants
10. EVERYONE is beautiful

Ya'll Ready For This!

Are we so excited girls?  January first is almost upon us and we get to make that ever popular obligatory weight loss goal!  I'm super stoked because I need some motivation and a new year really does it for me (for at least a week that is).  Actually I'm mostly excited because I found THIS This is by far the best price I have found on the Metabolic Reset shakes I love so much.  I give these shakes five stars.  I like the taste better than other ones I have tried and they really do fill you up AND when I was really working at weight loss they worked!  I'm having a big old tub of this protein powder shipped to my house once a month for $17.84.  The same size sells at Smiths for $34.99 and at Smiths Market Place for $39.99 (I know, rip off!), and they don't even carry them at walmart.   My exercise plans for the new year?  Jillian Michael's thirty day shred to start me off and then P90X (I'm borrowing from a friend, you know I'm too cheap to buy it).  I'm hoping by May to see some serious results!  Good luck to you and may the weight loss force be with you!
