1. Take the stairs
The first main thing that you can change is to say, I will never take an elevator again.Unless your in a ridiculously tall high rise,choose the stairs whenever possible. Makes sense right?Yet, at times we get caught up on rushing through our day. Make an effort to take stairs to get your heart rate moving and add a little skip to your step!
2. Park your vehicle farther
This can be achieved anywhere you go along as you think safety first. Walking gives us such healthy benefits we tend to ignore wanting only fast and convenient . Incorporate more and more walking throughout your day. Take a walk on your break, on lunch on your day off. Ask a friends or co-workers to join you. Start a walking club!
3. Put on your favorite music

They almost reminded me of dinosaurs hatching. Not sure why.
I'm very limited with space on my balcony so I try to use some self control when I go to Target to buy my garden supplies. I live right across the street from a Target. Scary, I know. I buy the seeds from the $1.00 section and splurge on the actual seed packets when I can. If it's not in the budget a month ahead of time-it's a no go. I must use this self-discipline or my place would like a straight jungle and people would start calling me Jane. Seriously.
My holiday tree dressed up for Spring. My daughter,Julia made the paper dress. She found the how to and whipped out a few! They are adorable!
I'm experimenting with this class container to see if Roses will bloom.
This is my Target on a budget Garden. What are you planting this season?

We stopped at Forever 21. As we walked around Julia saw such cute fashionable items. She spotted a jacket with a price tag of $62. Even though she works as a barista and has her own money, she knows a jacket at that price is not within a teenagers budget. Don't get me wrong she left there with several items under $41 dollars. If it were a special occasion I'm sure she would have considered it. I'm happy she is methodical on her purchases. She has me go with her to the dressing room and models outfits. I love my opinion matters to her at the age 17. I can be honest and tell her some fabrics, cuts and designs are not flattering.
It's also important to instill a sense of budget and modest dressing for that matter. We even go over tithing to our church and savings. They don't teach this stuff in High Schools like they should. I'm trying each day to rewire my brain pattern. With all the woes and trouble in the world, it really does start at home. One child at a time. One Parent at at time.

The class is basically for us woman who need a support system to help us become healthier. Sharing and caring for one another through our food addiction. Using biblical principals since there's a real spiritual, emotional and physical battle going on within ourselves. Bringing it to the forefront, sharing and caring our way through it.
I'm excited along with the other ladies to go through the book, share our stories, exercise together at Skylines gym and make healthy dishes and smoothies in our stat of the art kitchen with roundtable talks and praying .
I'll keep you posted on the amazing results.

Well, they said it would rain this weekend and it did. Power outages and down trees galore. I'm laying here in bed ready to call it a night and all I'm thinking of is springtime. I love planting seedlings and seeing them grow. What grows in your garden? I'm pretty limited with space here in the condo. Look what I started. You can barely see the little cilantro leaves. My little farm animals can't
