Tackle it Tuesday

I am joining up with 5MinutesforMom again today for Tackle it Tuesday.

Tackle It Tuesday Meme



So in keeping with my Tackle it November theme. I have decided to train for a 1/2 Marathon with my sister. It is a little crazy I KNOW!! But one of the things I really want to work on is my fitness and health and I have wanted to run a marathon for a very long time I just haven't had anyone pushing me or encouraging me to do it. I am not up to the whole marathon so I am going to do the 1/2!! I am using this site to help me train.


Here's to more Tackles!!!

I LOVE this idea! I can't join in today- well, maybe I can this afternoon- but will start next week.

The Hubs took some time off work and will be home Wed., Thurs. and Fri. in addition to the weekend. Our goal is to tackle and eliminate all the clutter in the basement! Maybe I SHOULD just kick back today since I'll be tackling stuff all weekend.

And good for you on the 1/2 marathon training. They say people who have physical fitness goals in addition to weight loss goals (not sure if YOU need to lose weight but I do) are more likely to keep going. I'm thinking about training for the Tour de Cure 100 mile bike ride next summer. Biking I can do, running? No way! Keep going! You're doing great!

Hmmm.... You post about training for the 1/2 marathon (way to go!), and then one of your suggested posts is a picture of a pile of delicious-looking nachos!!!

Makes me hungry for nachos, not eager to work out :)

Will be eager to hear about your progress, though. I AM impressed with your plans!!!

This is a great goal, I normally run 5k's maybe I will set my goal for a 10k before tackling a 1/2 marathon. =)

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
