Happy Mother's Day (Everyday)!

Happy Mother's Day to all! I will admit the older I get (and now that I have children, LOL), I'm more interested in the love I get the other days of the year than to put tons of expectations on one day.

The boys are taking baths in the regular bathtup now that they can sit up more stably. Phoebe helped me. She took her shirt off later, but I didn't want to post those pics, as she's getting older now and who knows what perverts are out there.

Liam was too distracted to look at me, but here's Tommy

Then I tried to take a pic of them together in their PJs. They wouldn't stay together though.

Unless a book was involved. They love this Elmo book!

Then pics of them being tucked into bed. Liam loves to sleep and his blankie. Tommy will not let me tuck him in anymore. He wants to go back to playing in his crib and standing.

So sweet! I love babies in the bathtub. And Phoebe is probably just the right age to enjoy their playfulness now, I guess? The boys' hair has grown so much! It looks like it's basically the same color as my girls'. Happy Mother's Day!!

Phoebe's Fifth Grade School Picture

Here's Phoebe's 5th Grade School Picture.  I really like her in red or bright colors.  She's definitely becoming quite the little lady.

Improving Habits

I've been a little bad on my diet beta test plan over the weekend, eating bread and drinking wine.  I'm ready for a hard do-over and get myself ready to try my first supported fast. Over the weekend while I was doing some much needed weeding, I was listening to podcasts, especially The Chalene Show, and one in particular about working on your habits.  Right now I have two habits to work on - not drinking a glass of wine in the evening after the kids go to bed and exercising daily.  I'm going to use the replace tactic for the wine and swap it for herbal tea or ginger-turmeric latte.  On the exercise, I need to keep to simple workouts like PiYo on Beachbody On Demand and remind myself how good I feel when I workout.  Today my nutrition was as follows:

Waking - coffee, black
Morning - intermittent fasting, drinking lots of water, until almost 11AM when I had my chocolate vegan Shakeology with unsweetened almond milk and coconut butter
Lunch - salad with chick peas, avocado, …

Diet Beta Test Update

Wow!  I will tell you this is life changing stuff!  I've been wanting to give an update to everyone as I've been having great success experimenting with fixing my metabolism.  Partly why I wanted to try this program, is I already was experimenting with different things like healthy recipes, cutting out dairy and intermittent fasting and was having some results.  What I was really looking for was more guidance on protocols and why one would choose to try different protocols and why.  That is exactly what this program is.  You listen to lots of different audio programs talking about the following ideas:

Healing gut health - this is one of the key ideas that we need to do in order to repair our metabolism and ensure we are receiving full nutrition from the healthy foods we eat.Eliminating inflammatory foods - inflammatory foods do not help your metabolism and gut health.  I've been avoiding dairy, gluten, alcohol, peanuts and nightshade vegetables (tomatoes, egg plant and pep…
