Happy Birthday to my dear son who turns 21 today!!! Wow, you are so grown up and I am so proud of you and your accomplishments! I know God has great plans for you and you are going to do great things with your future! Just always stay close to the Lord and seek to do HIS holy will.
I think of you whenever I hear this song:
"is able to build a trustful relationship. "
" is well liked by fellow classmates because of his ability to lead by example. "
" is quick to volunteer his time to participate in community service events or to organize an event."
"ability to teach and interact with people on a thoughtful and compassionate way"
" able to work independently and completed tasks with accuracy and on time."
" motivation and focus seemed tireless."

My recent hour workout schedule looks a little like this:
Thanks to my personal trainer who helped me make a plan:
Gym 6-7:15 or so
Do HIIT run-looks like this:
warm up on 5 for 2 min
go to 6.5 for one min
go to 7 for one min
go to 7.5 for one min
go to 8 for one min
go to 8.5 for one min
go to 9 for one min
then back to 6.5 and do it again
I do this the circuit three times
Then I go to do weight training:
(do each 15 times for 3 rotations)
1. Chest Fly (on back with 15lb weight in each hand-bring up to each other)
2. Back Row (on each side with 25lb weight, knuckle on bench, knee on bench, back straight, pull up weight like pulling a lawn mower cord up)
3. Shoulder Raise (10lb weight in each hand, stand up straight, lift up arms at the same time
4. Bicep Curls (hold a 15lb weight in each hand one at a time curl up arm-15 sets, so 30 times)
Then I do some ab workouts...sometimes the roman Chair, then some leg lift/crunches, jack knives, and scissors.
On Tues/Thurs (5-6:15am) I use a ARC Trainer. I use 2lb hand weights in each hand doing arm lifts/boxing punches, and just pumping my arms with them. Not sure how I would do without my ipod. I have an hour worth of Christian pop music that really helps me get moving. Then home to shower and wait for the babies to wake up!
On Sat/Sun I take off, sometimes I do a short run, workout video, or ab workouts. It all depends on our busy schedule.

I read lots of blogs from amazing women who cook up a storm...wow, their photos could be in a cookbook they look so good.
Do all bloggers have to be good cooks? Well people this one is not!!!
I have pretty much always been a bad cook. Sure I have some things I can make easily, but others...wow, it's like brain surgery!!!
So, when I do post a recipe it is usually easy with a few ingredients.
So here is an easy fall back especially in the winter when you want some comfort food.
Chrissy's super easy yummy chicken broccoli casserole:
This is especially good when you forgot to take out meat for dinner and have a freezer full of chicken breasts like I do. This recipe calls for boiling chicken in a pot of water which takes about 30 min with frozen chicken!
2 Tlbs. lemon juice or fresh lemon
can of cream of mush soup
can of cream of chicken soup
(really 2 cans of cream of anything would work)
1/2 cup of mayo (I use fat free-can't tell the difference)
3/4 cup of melted butter
one pack of Italian Seasoning (I think this is the secret ingredient)
1/2 cup of cheddar cheese
Pack of chicken breasts or any boneless chicken or chicken meat off of the bone (about 5lbs)
bag of broccoli pieces (you choose how much you want)
cook on 350 degrees for about 45minutes
My kids all like this even though the little ones get scared when they see the broccoli! Also they like to dip lots of bread in the self made gravy, so make sure you serve with bread.
Also, the other secret besides me not being a good cook...my house is usually a mess and I am not a very organized homeschool mom...(Boy someone is gonna take away my blog license!) But, my husband and kids are really cute and I love them so much!!!
THY WILL BE DONE!!!
