Tipful Thursday

Today’s Tipful Thursday topic is, removing stains. What is your favorite remedy for removing those pesky stains?!

Even though P is only 10 weeks old, he can still cause some massive stains on his cloths! We have had a few blowouts and when he got his vaccinations at his 2 month visit, I found a little blood on his onesie.

We have been pretty particular about the cleaning agents we have been using around and for P. From dish soap, to detergent I wanted safe and green products. I didn’t want stain remover to be any different. We do a good amount of shopping at Buy Buy Baby and found a line of cleaning products called BabyGanics. I am a fan of several of their products but my favorite is the Stain Remover. It has gotten every stain out I have thrown its way!


WW Wednesday

Well only a few short weeks ago I wrote this post promising that this go around with Weight Watchers will be different. Of course, I find myself staring at my weight tracker realizing that I haven’t gotten to a meeting in over a month.

I thought wanting to lose weight would be enough of an incentive but am finding that it isn’t. I decided to resort back to a few of the things that helped me lose almost 50 lbs last time.

The first, is to have a set date in mind with a certain weight goal. I chose February 28th which I will explain why in a moment. I also chose 140 lbs as my goal weight. This means I need to lose 60 lbs in 6 months. That is a high ambition but between breast feeding, being home and the ability to challenge myself, I think I can make it happen. The key will be not to cut out tons of food, but eat tons of food that are healthy and low in WW points. I certainly don’t want my supply to tank!

The second, have an event or something important to look forward to. This is why I chose February 28th. I recently purchased a Living Social Deal for Glamour Shots. The voucher expires February 28th so I have exactly 6 months to get my butt in gear! I wanted to have some pictures taken before Rob and I are ready to grow our family even more.

The third, is to make a calendar countdown so I can see my progress and how much time I have left. I take poster board and after a little math, drawing tons of straight lines with a ruler and some old photos of me at my goal weight, I have visual inspiration every time I wake up in the morning.

I am hoping that I can finally get myself focused. I am finding that I don’t have a lot of pictures with P because I am so unhappy with the way I look. I will never forgive myself if I look back 10, 20 even 30 years from now and regret that over something I HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OVER!
