The Post Where I Brag a Little

So I mentioned the other day how I love to work out.  I thought I better put my pictures where my mouth is so you don't think I'm just making it up....
This was taken at the CBC Conference in May of 2010.  I didn't take off my jacket because I was embarrassed of my chub.  I was happy clearly but not the best version of me.
Not the best shot but the only other pictures I have are in my sports bra and workout pants and I am not quite ready to put that all out there just yet.  
I have been working out with a great group of women for the past year. We encourage each other we laugh together and we get strong together.  We share recipes, workout tips, and our lives.  We call ourselves Super Mom's.  We have our own support group ahem I mean Facebook group.
Then in October a cute facebook friend Jill invited me to a LeanMoms event.  At the time I wasn't sure what that was exactly but it sounded fun it involved healthy snacks and a Saturday workout. It was the best decision I have made in a long time. Lean Moms and Super Moms united and I started to see some real results. Clean eating and weight lifting are the answer for me.  Apparently your muscles are made in the kitchen AND the gym not just one or the other. 
 To read more about Lean Mom's go to the website. It might change your life too.

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!
