Bouari Update

So I’m about 10 days into this now and some of it is becoming easy and some not so much.

I haven’t weighed. We actually don’t even own a scale in our home, but I think I’ve lost some more weight or inches because my clothes seem to be a bit loser and all of the sudden I’m getting comments every time I turn around about how much weight I’ve lost.

However, I will say the struggle for me has been the food part of this diet. I have an easy time with taking the spray in the mornings and evenings. The appetite suppressant works well and gives me extra energy. But there’s no official diet plan and definitely not prepackaged foods or anything so I’m having a really hard time figuring out how to gauge how many calories I’ve eaten or if I can eat something else. And then there are all the blogging events that happen – which generally food and drinks that I’m supposed to consume and then blog about it!

I’m afraid I’m eating way over the recommended 600-800 calories a day. Because I had already reached so much of my weight loss goal before beginning this plan, they told me I didn’t have to follow it as religiously as someone who was brand new to weight loss and looking to lose 50-100 pounds. But I also don’t want to be so laid back that it doesn’t illustrate the effectiveness of the product.

Next week I go for a checkup and weigh in so I’ll let you know what they tell me then. I seriously think this stuff is working though, even if I’m not very good at following directions!

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
