Move It Monday

Good Monday morning to you all! I hope you have a wonderful start this week! I am currently making my wonderful Monday morning special breakfast and am looking forward to what this day holds! To keep myself moving today, I am planning on doing:

3 loads of laundry-2 DONE

Sweep and mop living room floor

Pull out more stuff for garage sale-DONE

Water all outdoor plants and flowers-DONE

Help girls clean up their room a little-DONE

We are finally done with the school year, and grades have been given out! It was a great year, and I am looking forward to next year's school year already! Austin will start some summer state history and reading today, while Andrew will have a short break, and then start his summer reading. Praise God for getting us through another year!

I hope you all will come back on Weight Loss Wednesday, as I have some great news to share with you! I will tell you this now...I have found that staying on the move all day, really makes a difference on how much weight I lose. I have found that steadily moving around the house all day can be as effective as going to the gym for 2 hours! Good news for us SAHM moms, huh?!


  1. I definitely believe housework is a workout! And the best part is, the results are double. Not only does the exercise help our health, but the house looks fantastic when we're done! It's a win-win situation!

    I'm so glad your boys had a good school year. E and I will start our summer reading too, only this week is VBS so we're more focused on that. Hope you get everything accomplished today. God bless.

  2. You are so encouraging! I watered my outdoor flowers and helped my boys clean up their room. Great minds think alike!! Have a great Tuesday too! ~Amy : )

  3. PS Love Love Love your new blog look!! Any hints on where you found it or how you got it? So spring like!! I like it! Happy Monday!! ~Amy

  4. Thank you Amy! Yes, great minds do think alike!

    Believe it or not, I got the blog look from Blogger! You'll notice on the dashboard, that they have a new feature where the "layout" option used to be. Now it says "design" Click on that and then under the design tab, towards the top of the screen, there is an option for "template designer" new. There, you can find some new options for template layouts. You can change the background, text and link colors, and even where the features on you blog are put. That's how I got the three columns instead of two! Hope that helps!
