Friday Four: I’m a eat clean train mean get lean-Professional

Take a last  look, now say goodbye!

Take a last look, now say goodbye!

I know how to loose weight. I just don’t do well with keeping it off! ( That’s what I always say.”She must’ve been reading my mind!”) What I didn’t know was one of my daughters favorite news reporters was on a no sugar challenge and fitness mission. I read her story and felt like she was reading my mind, heart and soul. Her level of transparency was great. I too love my curves, but I know that I dare not put back on the catsuit I wore 15 years ago. (My daughters use it as a costume now.) I’m so impressed by her. If you love life and is a rooter for the under dog, you will be to!

Here’s what Ms Brigida Mack shared:

If you’ve ever struggled with weight then you know the power it can have over your life.  Power you often feel helpless to change.

There are so many stories of that struggle out there. This is mine.259ea894a17411e29f2e22000a1fb37d_7

Full disclosure: I’ve never been one of those slim women. Even as a teenager, my high school boyfriend endearingly (or so he thought) called me ‘Voluptuous Bri’. The truth is, I’ve always embraced my curves. Didn’t mind being called ‘thick’, ‘bootylicious’ or ‘stacked’. Until those curves started to negatively affect my health. But you wouldn’t know that to look at me. You wouldn’t know the number it did on my self-esteem.

Why, you wonder?

Because I always had this big smile on my face, ‘dressed to the nines’, make up and hair ALWAYS on point (even before my life in TV), in hopes that (somehow) people wouldn’t notice the weight. So I would keep people laughing, winning them over with my ‘big’ personality, trying to compensate for my rapidly expanding waistline. Trying to hide my shame and embarrassment of being overweight. A pain that’s left deep scars and known only to those closest to me.

Did you know I’ve lost the weight before? In 2009, I dropped 50 pounds in six months. I know how to lose it – the key is KEEPING it off.

That’s when my trainer Tracy, challenged me to give up all processed sugar for 90 days.  On the way home from my session that morning, it hit me: you never really win the ‘war on weight.’ It’s a battle you choose to fight every, single day for the rest of your life. Lulled into complacency by my success in 2009, before I knew it I was gravitating more to the vending machine at work and the drive-thru on the way home and, of course, the weight came back –with a vengeance!

People ask me how I can resist the temptation of sugar or how I’ve managed to go without it for so long. All I can tell you is that I got sick and tired of being SICK AND TIRED. I was fed up! Done letting the weight control my life. Done with the excuses. Done with keeping up that (exhausting!) charade.

So — I, an admitted chocoholic, and a gal who’s never met a carb she didn’t like — joined #TeamNOSugar for 90 days.

You can, too. Just decide to do it. Take back your power and walk into the life of your dreams!

So, are you in?profile_177967586_75sq_1363660908

Here are 4 ways to avoid sugar. And yes, I’m doing these also -Chocolate demon -BE GONE! (these are my tips):

1.Get rid of it! If it’s otta sight, it’s outta your mind (most times) Tip: Read labels for hidden sugars & sugar aliases
Hidden sugars: tomato sauce, baked beans, packaged foods, chewing gum, mints, and lunch meats.  Sugar aliases: corn syrup, dextrin, dextrose, fructose, fruit juice concentrate, high-fructose corn syrup, galactose, glucose, honey, hydrogenated starch, invert sugar maltose, lactose, mannitol, maple syrup, molasses, polyols, sorghum, sucrose, sorbitol, and xylitol.

2. Drink more water,chew a stick of gum while exercising-but add fruit, mint tea,or herbs. Exercising helps pretty much everything, from depression to joint health. You can add sugar cravings to that list.

3.  Recruit someone to do it with you. Get another mom to hold you accountable! Make it a team effort. support one another through the tough times.

4.Increase your protein intake.Often our bodies will exhibit cravings for sweets when what they really need is more protein. Consider cleaning out all of the change and single dollar bills in your wallet so you aren’t able to feed the vending machine. Make sure you fill up on gas when someone is with you. Go grocery shopping after a meal, so you don’t load up on unhealthy foods.

Here’s a recipe to get you started- compliments of

Wednesday WOW: Lucy Suzie-Woo got hit!

Suzy, Lucy Woo is total lost! Yes, my 15 year old Barney purple mini van is on it’s last leg! She got hit a week ago today. I remember it like it was yesterday. We were in the middle of our homeschool day. We had just picked up a few things from the market & was sitting at the stop sign. Then we got hit! BAM! She made it thunder!!! Bam -BAM! We couldn’t move.DIGITAL CAMERA

The sweet lady that hit us was shivering, my 3 pints of rice cream and 1 pound of dry ice was melting.But everyone was happy to be feeling all 10 fingers and toes! I knew it wasn’t in her plans to hit the lady driving with a van full of kids, so I didn’t feel the need to act badly. this notion sure comforts me

The most aggravating thing was waiting for the police to arrive. They made it out there 45 minutes later. The other lady said “I’m sorry for interrupting your day, I’m gonna send your children some ice cream.” Wouldn’t you know, she sent it. It arrived with the sweetest card.That goes to prove that you don’t have to make an enemy during a car accident. I can’t wait to send her a thank you note. DIGITAL CAMERA

We are now seeing the chiropractor. You should see their eyes when all 7 of us walk into Dr Brandon and Dr. Natalie’s chiropractic office, talk about FUNNY! I hope this will be the caveat to get a new mini van. Keep your fingers crossed that I get something in one color, retractable windows,seating for 8/10 and a working havc system, like the white rental in the picture above.Sweet right?

Till our next ride, Drive safely! QC Supermom

Earth Day 2013:Seeing more!

Saturday was Earth Day! I got up as usual, but instead of the normal going and being busy, I chose to see things differently. Since we took advantage of a gardening class at Home Depot, I figured it was enough acknowledgement for Earth Day.DIGITAL CAMERA

I figured I would surly take a mental break. To my surprise, Charlotte NC is loaded with amazing people, doing amazing things on this Earth. I was able to catch some on camera.

DIGITAL CAMERAClean up was going on on West Blvd. It’s by far one of the roughest streets in the Queen City, but it got done by volunteers!I was happy to see that someone cared enough to be there

DIGITAL CAMERAAs we continued, we got down town. There were so many protesters there. Everyone has a mind and boy were they there sharing them. I seen everything from population control via food poisoning to gay rights protested.

DIGITAL CAMERAFinally we arrived at the Westin hotel, downtown Charlotte. Can you believe this lady had two tiny puppies inside that stroller? Oh my! The bell hop said, “Hi tiny friends!” The dog owners smiled from ear to ear.

DIGITAL CAMERAThis was my lunch. I needed all the energy I could find. I didn’t even have a clue as to how busy the next couple of days would be for us. I picked this up from the Healthly Home Market  on East Blvd. It was really weird eating an entire meal with anyone asking, pulling on, yelling at, or touching me….Oh yes, there is a GOD!……and he loves me! 🙂 DIGITAL CAMERAOk, so I was staring-sue me. But this lady caught my attention. Sure, it was none of my business but obviously she had surgery to  lose ALOT of weight. Her body had collection points where the weight sat at. It almost looked like her body was a collection of balloons made with sand. Bless her heart for trying to get her health together.DIGITAL CAMERACan you read this graffiti? I won’t tell you what it said, But I was surprised to see it on Freedom Drive.DIGITAL CAMERASo why did I observe these odd things? It’s because of those papers up there? All types of sales advertisements for legal help. We got hit the other day in the mini van. We were on our way to our weekly Cooking With Kids Class when this lady hit us. We, 6 of the kids & myself are healing, but we are happy to still be walking this Earth and being able to see things differently than before. Life, and Earth is amazing! I’m so happy that we are able to see more of it.How was your Earth day?ed

Friday Four: What to do in a playgroup

Play pretty! Stop that! Is that your sippy cup or mine? I said SHARE IT! Hush now, Wait a minute, I’m coming! …….. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.I say it all!

1mj

One of the most powerful assets a mom can have is her playgroup. The power in playgroups lies in their ability to make friendships and provide support for it’s members. But finding one can be the most important thing you choose besides your mate. It’s got to work for you both (all).

When you find one attend more than one play date before deciding if the group will work out for you, as the saying goes you can’t judge a book by its cover. This applies to playgroups as well, each event will have different people participating so you may find people you click with the second or third time around.100_2793 (2)

If you haven’t gotten that far, let me give you a little help to get you started with my top four tips to navigate your way into a successful experience.  yoga1

1. Bring something to the table. Some play group do a lot of education based events. Offer to help. No one wants to do all of the work alone. Don’t be known as that mom that never shows up or never helps out. If you are to nervous to really make conversation with some of the others don’t let that deter you from participating.

Use this time out of corporate work for you. Use your pre-mom skills In the group. Find ways to bring value that will look great on your resume when/if you return back to work.

2. Think like a mom. Act like a woman. Most moms lead with emotion. All moms should respond with maturity. If you can’t control your emotions, it is unfair and unreasonable to expect your child to control his. It’s important to know that at some point,your baby will cross paths with another lil one. You should be able to know when to intervene or to sit back and watch it dissolve. Yes, I know it’s harder than it sounds when someone pushes, your little one in anger.

3. Know what to expect. There are a plethora of playgroups. Some are support groups.  You just have to be certain of what you need for you and your little one. You may like a highly structured group or a very open group.  Does the age of the other kids in the group really matter? Many groups meet up so during the week, that the need of a licensed pre-school is not useful. (Ponder these option too!)

4. Leave with class. Like my uncle used to say,”Every road has a stop sign.” Every play group organizer knows this. As a matter of fact,unless they become a baby making machine for the next 18-50 years, they won’t want to be in the group either. When you are ready to move on, do it with class. Don’t leave her and the group without a trace.

Here’s how to  leave- I didn’t know there were so many ways of saying goodbye, but I found a few good ones. THE MESSENGER ROUTE, THE SLOW WITHDRAWAL ROUTE,THE DIRECT ROUTE,THE EXPLANATION all of which is on American baby. Here‘s an actual statement from American Baby:  “You guys have been such a great source of support, but I’m finding it’s getting harder and harder to make meetings. I’m sure our paths will cross at birthday parties and preschool!”us

Well, I hope none of my moms are reading this with intentions to leave, but if she is,more power to her. I’d wish her the best. Till the nest play group, have fun!

Wednesday Wow:Homeschooling Questions and Answers

The homeschool community has grown exponentially in the last ten years, and the resources available to homeschoolers now can seem endless in scope.

Garden and plant home school class by Aura Agape The homeschool community has grown exponentially in the last ten years, and the resources available to homeschoolers now can seem endless in scope.

Thinking about homeschooling, so have many others parents just like you! I have put together a few tidbits and hope it helps you in your decision to educate your child.

Home schooling does not  mean that you are non public school….every child has different needs, and every parent has different capabilities.

We home school because we want all of our children to have a quality, well rounded education with minimal distractions, that would prepare them for real life experiences. For us, we wanted to focus on Nutrition, Culture, Physical, the environment, Math, Science, Finance, and Technology.

Literary Circle at our local library hosted by the UNCC early educators interns.

Having them at home ensures character development too which is also essential. At Kelle’s Higher Learning, we make it work for us. I guarantee you that we don’t stick to a clock to tell us how long to teach/learn. Some times it more, sometimes it’s less than the 8 hours.

Discoveries

After years of using math in their daily lives, homeschooled teens are well equipped to teach themselves higher math. Don’t worry about it when they are ten.
You will question yourself a lot. Maybe several times a day in the beginning. This is normal. Find a fellow homeschooling friend. Support each other. Tell each other that it’s okay to sometimes feel that your children didn’t seem to learn anything on a given day. They did, and so did you!

By no ones measure are my kids social misfits. I have a stay at home mom support group with children very close their age, and because of  the kids next door, their friends at ballet, 4-H and Karate there is no reason to ever be concerned about that.

Another concern I hear is whether their child’s SAT/ACT’s results will get into college. Every year, colleges across the nation and the world are opening their doors to homeschoolers. Many of the most prestigious colleges around the nation have accepted homeschoolers: Brown, Georgetown, Harvard, MIT, Princeton, the United States Military Academy at West Point, UC at Berkeley, University of Michigan, Notre Dame, and Yale, just to name a few. My son was homeschooled for just two years and today he is at Hampton University . So, trust me, it’s ok.

The key to homeschooling both older and younger kids together is all in strategy. Teach them how to learn. For example, when were are doing science projects, the older ones get the research part of the assignment. The younger ones get to help create it! Everyone enjoys it!

Homeschooling is an act of love. It does require loads of structure, determination and immense creative skills. It's a very personal decision, and you must be comfortable with yourself.

To get started in North Carolina there are three requirements that homeschools must meet: 1st visit the NCDNE here’s the link: Click Here!

Once you give the state notice of your intention to homeschool, wait for your “license” to begin. If you are living on a budget as we are and have multiple children as we have, do yourself a favor and get free/ affordable help. Many businesses and even libraries offer free help for students of all ages. Try K12, Connections Academy, Insight or Kaplan. They all offer free programs. Khan Academy is our favorite! They are a not-for-profit educational organization that believe in providing a high quality education for anyone, anywhere.

Being  home schooled allows children to work at different levels. My 6 year old is doing division, multiplication and reading well on a first grade level.

Don’t forget educational games. There are so many amazing ways to engage your child in learning while they are having fun, thanks to technology and the internet. These green friendly options allows us to be more mobile by just googling: free learning software for kids and free preschool curriculum, a truss of goodies come up. I suggest Jumpstart. It’s an affordable software and a few of the lessons have hard books and match games. Also check out local newspaper for opportunities available to you as a homeschooling family.

Homeschooling is a lot of work. But it’s worth it. Every time I’ve considering putting them back in public school, I go back to thinking of the reasons why I chose to homeschool in the first place and start on my lesson plans for next week. In closing, if you try it and it doesn’t work, put your ego aside and send them back to public school. You can always move to a better school zone*. If you need more detailed information on this topic get it my upcoming guide I’ll share it here on this blog post in the comment section.

Wednesday Wow: I have a mind virus stuck in my Messiah Trap.

In all of my life  I have never heard the term ” Messiah trap.” It refers to someone who tends to help other more than them self.  Mind virus is another word that was new to me until today. Both words make really good sense when defining someone that has a deep seeded fear of succeeding.nelson

I had to meditate on this post. I wasn’t sure if I wanted such a  vulnerable side of myself to the world wide web for all to discover.

But maybe it will help others. Who knows!

Some times I ask myself: “If I made a million dollars this year in sales generated from mom consulting, nursing cover ups, Cooking with Kids Classes, and other services that I provide for my moms support group, what would I do with for my self, also I ask, If someone I admired, said that I was amazing, how would I respond? I can see myself, just smiling and quickly throwing back a compliment, because I’m not the best compliment receiver. 

So am I a procrastinator (mind virus) or am I stuck in the Messiah Trap    (wanting to help others reach their goals MORE than I do mine)

 With 6 children in the house,it’s hard to make regular time for my other pursuits. I figure, if the old saying is true”What’s for me is for me. It won’t go anywhere. I can pick up my “steam ” once my youngest gets 6 years old. But to my defense, It has word.I have done ALOT OF GREAT THINGS that happens to be inline with what I want to do later on a full time basis.This year alone, I have created job sharing opportunities for my moms group, negotiated many group discounts and even organized some amazing mom support workshops and events. So I’ll give myself a little break.bc

A friend said to me a few days ago, “Kelle, any time you start something big or life-changing with labels like not good enough you shut down your growth before you’ve even begun. Messiahs come in various varieties. You may see in yourself any of the following: pleaser, giver, rescuer, counselor, teacher, protector, or crusader. Whichever combination, you are susceptible to becoming overextended and over invested in the lives of others.”  a big part of letting go of the messiah trap is connecting to others on an equal footing. Taking your turn as well as giving other’s theirs. Not only do we all need support, but we deserve it as well..Although it felt weird to hear my name in the same thought of a Messiah, I understood the message. I’ll continue onward towards my next goal in small steps. My mom’s group, Queen City Stay At Home Moms will be hosting a EFT event  at The Baby Grocery Store in a few weeks. I heard the tapping can help me get over my subliminal fear of success . We’ll see how that goes.

The Easiest and Cutest Planter Gardens EVER!

I LOVE watching things grow! Hair,kids, bank accounts and my plants!

pepers

I grew up in the fields of South Carolina. My grand parents had a large field on their property and we had the honor of sowing and harvesting it on the weekends, and boy how I hated it. I was too happy to leave for college to escape it. Eventually I forgot all about that part of my life. I forgot what it meant to grow real food. I even forgot how to replenish the earth and how to really feed my family. Lately, I had the “green ghost tapping me on my shoulder” reminding me of my “roots.” I began to want better tasting, safer to eat, veggies like the ones I had as a little girl. Then it hit me…..”Kelle, grow your own. S t a r t small!” “Duh!” So I did. The house we moved into is a rental and many owners do not want their property carved up, so I had to come up with a plan B. For me it was container gardening.

planter5

It turned out to be easier than I thought. The Gardening Gods are smiling on me! Sure every plant does not make it to fruition but we are having the time of our lives experimenting, discovering and digesting safe, clean amazing herbs, veggies and other plants in our funky, fresh containers. With just a little work and creativity, you can find the right space, container and plant to satisfy your gardening needs.  Not only will you save dinero, your kids will love the opportunity to be hands on with the container selection, prep and planting.

sy it is to find a planter very affordably. We have a son that is in another state attending college. He wears a size 15 shoe. Using his sneakers as a planters is on our list of things to do. It should be very fun to see a part of him every day in this function better known as “a growing foot”

 Here’s a few tips to get you started. Buy healthy seedlings or buy in season heirloom seeds. To start, go with mint, rosemary, chamomile, lavender, basil and oregano.

Proper soil is another crucial part of growing indoor plants. To make your own, mix potting soil with sand and a small amount of lime to give your herbs the best soil conditions for growth. When your herbs receive the right amount of water, they will flourish and thrive. A good idea of how often you need to water your herbs is every 1 to 2 weeks.

Breastfeeding ROCKS! I found some friends to have my back as I fed Noah the other week. By the way, the 9 month old guy is walking now. Go Noah!

Here’s something else I’m working on. A Woman’s Workshop.

Ok, sure no women wants to fix our own cars, but wouldn’t it be great to actually know spark plugs from  piston rings? To know when someone is overcharging me is also a great incentive to have a working knowledge of mechanical abilities. I can’t wait till my workshop for women begins next month. (I do stay busy don’t I?)

By the way, since I am rambling,  The Total Children’s Wellness Fair is looking very promising. I’m so excited.I’ll be sure to keep you all in the loop. I thank you all for the outstanding support. You will be thrilled on 11.16.13!

I oozed through Easter with out one bag of Kit Kat bars. As a matter of fact, I wasn’t going to doing anything at all this year. Well that was my plan. The kids have a way of changing my mind. I had a BUNCH of large plastic eggs in the house. So I purchased art supplies, nail color, tank tops, colored caulk, The Justice League underwear & matching socks, and a few other essential goodies and packed them snug and tight for the kiddos.Then placed them on the floor like droppings.

I figured the ridiculous story about a “rabbit” could handle a few large egg droppings in the punch line.

I even made  gift for my husband. They loved it. Tuesday, we gathered a couple of kids from my moms group for a scavenger hunt in the park. Eaim, 6 year old was the only one that asked “Where the candy at.” ….he’ll be okay, bless his little heart.

Till the next dropping, take care,
