George Foreman, P90X, Giveaways all on Day 18!

Happy Day 18 for me and my hubby and my daughter! Yup, you read correctly! We are now on Day 18 of P90X! We are loving it! Today our workout was Kenpo - that has quickly became my favorite! The first time I did it, I hated it, I even hated it more than yoga, I just felt like such a clutz, I could not move my arms and legs in different directions like Tony wanted me to! But once you get use to it, wow, what a fun workout!

I want to share something my friend Jen said in her Blog some time ago, I love it and want to say it over and over and over again! I feel like it's my family's new mantra since we have started P90X!

"This is not a DIET. This is not a TRIAL. This is LIFE."

That is how I truly feel at this point in time, with the changes we are making with excercising and a new way of eating!

Please check out Jen's Blog, it's an awesome one!

One Tough Girl

I wanted to share a quick, easy, yummy recipe with you all. It's not out of the P90X nutrition guide, but wow, it's yummy, and healthy! I did alter it and used whole wheat buns, I found some wonderful very, very thin buns, and used only the bottoms, we did not have a top on our sandwiches.

But speaking of eating, I have to ask you all - what do you think about your George Foreman grill - in terms of cleaning them? My goodness, I'm using that thing almost daily now, but what a pain in the patootie it is to clean! Wow! First I scrape it with the little scraper, and then do you know what I do? I wet paper towels, lay them on it, and heat it up again briefly, so it almost steams all the gunk, it makes it so much easier to clean!

Now, tell me - who here doesn't love a chance of winning something??? I am going to tell you about two different blogs you can go to for your chance to win two totally different, but incredibly beautiful handcrafted treasures!!!

My dear friend Darla, is an awesome painter, who is celebrating her one year blogiversary!

Another blog friend who is opening her heart after the wonderful responses she received regarding help for Haiti is offering a prize;

I hope you all have a Fabulous Friday!!! I'm so excited it's Friday!!!!



  1. Lori,
    Okay first of all..I totally relate to your feelings about KenpoX. It was like I was punching MYSELF the first time! ha ha
    Now that I do kickboxing at the gym (hitting and kicking an actual bag), I don't care for the Kenpo video too much because I prefer to hit someTHING, but still, it's a great workout once you get the moves figured out and can really put some UMPH! behind them!
    As for the George Foreman grill, I couldn't have said it better! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it for cooking and HATE HATE HATE it for the cleaning!!! Good idea about the paper towels. What I do is scrape it with the little spatula thingies, then spray it with HOT water, wait....., spray again, wait....., scrub, scrub, scrub with a brush, spray again, scrub more. It is TOTALLY a pain. So much so that I sometimes hesitate to use it...but then I think "how else am I gonna cook this?"
    I've heard that they have come out with a new one now that has REMOVABLE COOKING PLATES!!!
    Isn't that AWESOME! I think they can even go in the dishwasher possibly! I am definitely going to check into getting one! (maybe today!) Supposedly they just slide off for cleaning and slide back on for cooking! GENIOUS!
    Thanks for all the compliments and links to my blog! You're a wonderful friend!!

  2. Hey sweetness! Thanks for plugging my little giveaway!!
    Congrats on day 18.......guess what came today :) Yes, my own little torture is about to begin!

    About George..I used to have the regular grill but last year took the plunge and purchased the one with removable plates. BEST INVESTMENT EVER! I ended up paying full price $49 at Target because I didn't want to wait for a sale, but WHEN they put them on sale, they are 39. So totally worth it! I put them in the sink and could literally clean them with a cotton ball, it's that easy! I threw my old one, nobody wanted it. haha

    Love, D

  3. Congratulations on your life change. Keep up the great work.
    Thanks for coming by and commenting on the votive. I am so glad you like it.
    YAY!! George. I am so glad they are making one with removeable plates.
    I am hoping I win Darla's angel too.

  4. Hi my girls Jen and Darla, hello, hello, hello! I have been trying to get a post done this whole entire day - it's been a crazy day at work - is it a full moon???

    Jen, I can totally see now how kickboxing would be fun - I never use to think that, but now I can see that I would love it!!!

    And you have both twisted my arms - I think it will be a new George Foreman for me! I just got this one last year for my birthday, but I definitely want one with removable plates, will that ever be a lifesaver!!! Wuu huuu, so excited! =)

    Bye, Hugs

  5. Hi Marie!!!!! =)

    Thank you so much for the Congrats, I appreciate it!

    I did love the votive holder!!

    Maybe Darla can split the angel in half and we can both win!!!
