In a pot with a small amount of water slice
3-4 med potatoes
1 small onion
Bring to boil and let it cook until the vegetables are soft. Strain out any excess water. Add the browned Beef into the pot.

Add Sour Cream until you like the flavour, if you want more sauce leave some of the water in with the vegetables.
How about travelling with 4 children, for the weekend, to another city to stay in a hotel room, does that sound like fun or a gong show?
Sometimes I can romantisize it and think “what great memories that we are giving the kids”, sometimes it is out of guilt, “that they all will want to go” and sometimes it is because I just want them all to come along. Although it can seem a bit like a gong show at times , here is how I get through it and hopefully make it a great experience!
Family time can be fun, but it can also be crazy. I do remind my self many times while in such close quarters that I need to remain calm and patient. EXAMPLE when they continually jump from bed to bed and sometimes jump on the person sitting on the bed. A FUN manager… that is what I become… lol
Enjoy the times you have with your kids, one day not to far in the future, they will no longer be travelling with you. You will think back to the days that you are experiencing now and wonder where the time went.

Have you been hearing all you life about how important it is to drink water and get exercise daily. How about you have to run for 12 minutes to get you heart rate high enough to make a difference.,
Even when I think about it now it makes me feel like I am not doing enough.
SO what can I do about this idea of exercise everyday, how can I make it simpler and easier?
I learned a few years ago to take advantage of each moment in the day and use what I am doing as a reason to get some exercise in.
1. Walk with a Purpose -For instance after watching my then toddler walk, with his cute little butt, I noticed that when he walks he fully tightens his leg and butt each time he steps, I don’t do that, my leg and butt have become lazy over the years and just don’t get the workout. I purposefully walk and squeeze my butt now, if that will help to tone my butt in day to day walking, I will do it!
2. Body Resistant Exercise – I started was to do 100 push-ups a day. I know that totally sounds like a failure statement (who really does that?) but I started looking for excuses to do push-ups. I started by doing 10 at a time, 10 times a day and” Yes” I did start from my knees, and then 1 full and 9 from the knees, it was hard work. When was a good time to do push-ups? Any and all the time. When I was in the kitchen and waiting for the water to boil I would do 10, if I got the slightest bit cold, I would do 10. What I didn’t know when I started was that a simple push-up works more than your arms. My core got stronger just by doing push-ups. This was my main workout for a couple of years, having little babies, this was the time that I had available to put into a workout.
3. Add in exercise all the time -At other times you will see me pumping gas and taking those few moments to do some calf raises as well doing these at the kitchen counter. Taking the stairs when I can is also a great way to fit things in. As well walking a few times a week, but honestly the push-ups get done more often then the walking.
Eating well, supplementing well and exercising well for me needs to be easy, simple and something I can get done during the day as I am experiencing life and the lives of my children. Are you into the gym for hours or are you wanting to get things done during the day with all the others things that you have to do. Easy, Simple and implemented into your day…. perfect to me!
Find those easy and simple steps that work for you too.
See you there.
