I am down a pound from last week. I have 25 more pounds until I reach my "wedding" goal.
Now that it is finally spring I am more motivated to eating heathier. I made a tomato, cucumber and onion salad with a spinkle of Italian Dressing. It is so yummy even Hannah loves it!
I also chopped up some strawberries and munch on them when I need a snack.
From this day on I will have a "cheat" day on Sunday.
This has all been mental to me, which, I think I am over now! I know what I need to do and will make it work for me!
If you have any words of wisdom I would LOVE to hear it! Also if you have any exercise routines that I can do with Hannah at home let me know about that!
I have blogged about this before. If you are interested in joining my Houseparty Afterparty, leave me a comment with your email!

Danielle also made a pasta salad with Bacon Bacon from her Tastefully Simple collection. She added peas and some cheese with Ranch dressing, this was a BIG hit, even with the picky eaters!
I subsituted Strawberry pie filling for Blueberry, for the picky eaters. These little tarts were the hit of the night! One batch made 24 tarts! I may consider making these for the dessert bar for the wedding if we are allowed to make some stuff on our own. I have to ask permission from the caterer!

1 tablespoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, to taste
4 pounds baby back ribs, cut into 2-rib portions
In a small bowl, stir together all ingredients except the ribs. Rub spice mixture all over the ribs. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate ribs for at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours.
Preheat the grill to medium heat.
Arrange the ribs on the barbeque and grill for 40 to 45 minutes, turning with tongs occasionally until meat is tender and crisp on the outside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a paper cupcake liner in each cup of a muffin pan.

I saw a story on the news last night saying there are 850 children in foster care now and only 200 foster families. These are desperate times and we need to help in anyway we can. The Clermont County Foster Program is looking to start a library. So I am looking for BOOKS! The CCFP needs books for children and teens available when they are waiting in the lobby, visiting their parents during supervised visits, etc as well as books on parenting that parents have had their children removed from them or are at risk of this could borrow.
The second is a place I found is Inter Parish Ministry in Newtown who is helping folks who have lost their jobs and can't afford anything. These individuals are referred by social workers and will receive toiletries, baby food, clothing, boxed/canned goods, etc. This is their critical needs: Canned Pasta in Sauce (ie. Ravioli), Peanut Butter (crunchy), Jelly (all flavors), Pasta & Spaghetti Sauce, Cereal (cold, all types), Shampoo / Conditioner, Deodorant, Toilet Paper/Paper Towels.
I am sure us coupon queens can get a lot for FREE!
Donations will be taken now until April 19. You can donate items personally April 19 at the Milford Quaker Steak and Lube from 12-4. I am part of "Wicked Women Racing" and we give back to the community everytime we get together.

Walgreens said patients who lose their job and health insurance after March 31 will be able to get free treatment at its in-store Take Care clinics for respiratory problems, allergies, infections and skin conditions, among other ailments. Typically those treatments cost $59 or more for patients with no insurance. You can read more about it here.Thanks to Mummy Deals for passing along this helpful info!
