Sweet 'N Low Makes Everything Sweeter

  I had opportunity through Crowdtap and Sweet 'N Low recently to try out some new drinks.  I was sent some packets of Sweet 'N Low to use with some new drink recipes.
Grape Ice Tea

  I made Grape Ice Tea, with ice tea, grape flavoring, and Sweet 'N Low.  It was very good, with hardly any calories.  I think I will have to make this drink a regular one.  Do you have any favorite drinks you make with Sweet 'N Low?  Care to share?

Kids Academy Giveaway

Kid's Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.

Weigh To Go!

  I have been on a hiatus from dieting.  Not a good thing in any case, but for the past week, I have been trying to get back up on the wagon. I am trying Weight Watchers to help me out this time.  I found an app for my Kindle, and it is helping me with my points.  I put a link in this post to the app.  It says on the link that it is free.  If it doesn't say that, I wouldn't purchase it.  I am trying to keep myself on track by posting my weight here.  But I also need help keepong myself motivated.

  If you feel like giving me a kick in the motivation, I can definitely use it.  I am down to 300 pounds.  I know, I know, it sounds like I still weigh a whole lot more than I should.  In my defense, though, I did start out at 353 pounds.  So I have lost 53 pounds.  I just got stuck at 300 pounds, and I haven't been able to move either one way or the other for some time now.

  Now I am going to have to keep myself on track for sure, because I am going to be posting here at least once a week.

  I have to try to diet on a budget.  This shouldn't be as difficult as I think  it will be.  Seems like all the healthy foods I can think of are not affordable.

   I could use some ideas on healthy, inexpensive eating.  Does anyone have any recipes to share?

   My goal is to get down to 275 pounds by the end of this year. That is 5 pounds a month, which works out to be 1.25 pounds a week.

    I think I should be able to do this, if you help to hold me accountable.  I need to stay motivated.

   Do you think I can do it?  With your help, maybe I can.
