Cake Shakes?


I started a new diet with Visalus and I have lost 4 lbs in 1 1/2 weeks (I didn't do well my firstt week.) The shakes are really good, and what I like nest about them is that you can mix it with ehatever you want! It comes with some nutritional flavor packets, but I love to add my own fruit.

Here are some of my favorites:

FF Milk
Cake Shake Mix

Frozen Peaches
FF Milk

Frozen Pineapple
Frozen Mango
Orange Packet
Cake Shake Mix
FF Milk

Breakfast and lunch shakes. I have healthy snacks during the day and est whatever I make for dinner. Kind of pricey, but they taste good and I ma happy to see results right away - in fact, I have tons of energy from them too!

My "brother" growing up is getting married on Sept 4, so I need to lose fast and healthy weight by then :) I'll keep you all posted on my success and check it out if you get the chance. Body By Vi

September 1, 2011

I can't believe how 9/1/11 is coming. It is a little nerve-wrecking.

I guess I should explain.

9/1/11 is the 1 year anniversary of my divorce being final, but more than that, 
it is the day I can officially start dating again.

 I started working on myself and making positive changes in my life back when I was still married, but I haven't spent a lot of time getting to know who I am again. I knew that I didn't want to just jump into another relationship. It wouldn't be fair to me or the person I was dating. Then one day, I was listening to a sermon by Andy Stanley at North Point Church (The New Rules for Love, Sex and Dating: The Right Person Myth), when I heard him say it is not about finding the right person, but when you do find the right person, will you be the type of person they are looking for? WOW! I have very high standards this time around and I want to be the person that I am looking for is looking for. So, (even though time had already started to pass) I made a vow to not date for one year so I could become that person. 

Single friends, please listen to it!!!!

So, now I am coming up on 9/1/11, and I am excited and cared at the same time. 
Am I that person? Do I know myself enough? Do I remember how to date? How to flirt? How to kiss? Online dating? Where do I even begin to meet someone? 

Any advice?

I Have A Question...

As the boys are laying in bed:

Ryan: I have a question.
Me: Okay.
Ryan: It is about monster trucks.
Me: Okay.
Ryan: If a monster truck tries to eat me, I run away and yell for help. And, that's my question.
Me: laughing hysterically.

Yep - this happens every night. Some nights a train tries to eat him.

blog design

Does anyone have any connections to someone that will design my blog for me? I want it plain and simple, but with a cute banner.
