PostHeaderIcon When Your Body Asks, WTF but Your Garden is saying YES

Disclaimer: This is NOT a sponsored post.

It is no secret to many that I am a horrible sleeper and I love my food, having a garden has helped. Almost 7 years ago, I became a single Mom. I was okay with it. It was a new journey that I was happy to take. Why? I was a very depressed person. Not happy with my life and I had gained a lot of weight. I was over 250 lbs when this chapter began. Over the course of the years, I managed to lose 50 pounds. This was a big accomplishment for me because I didn’t think I could do it. Stress is an amazing weight loss tool. Not that I recommend doing it that way. Over time I gained a few pounds back.

Currently I have hit that weight loss wall. I will be 40 next year and I know it gets harder to lose it as we women get older. I got to the point where I just ignored it. Out of sight out of mind, right? That just wasn’t working for me.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I recently started Thrive. I am currently on Day 5 and feeling great. I haven’t gone back to bed in 5 days and I am excited to see where this takes me. With the balance of sleeping and moving twice as much during the day, I am hopeful. Wish me luck!

With all of my new-found energy, I started to focus on my garden. I am determined to have an amazing crop this year. Last year we had a lot of cucumbers but nothing else really seemed to thrive. (See what I did there? Completely unintentional lol) So, I decided that I wanted to do raised beds. The ground moles got under the garden and ripped my root vegetables to shreds. I pulled up my radishes with such joy, only to find them chomped on. Very disappointing.

Keeping Your Kids Safe Online - DelightfulChaos.comLike many of us do, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and came across a photo that a friend of mine posted. It was on of those “claim” photos. You know the kind. This one said that you can clean up nail polish with sugar. Since I am a total clutz, I decided to try this one out. I tried it out on a old piece of wood flooring. If you have carpet, sorry! I can’t test that one. There is no carpet in my home. Watch below to see if it worked! DIY is the best way to find out if something works!

PostHeaderIcon Waste less food and save more money

Waste Less Food - DelightfulChaos.com“But MOOOOMMMM I’m full!” How many times a week do you hear this from your children? If you break out the ice cream, suddenly they have a lot of free space in their tummies. Funny how things work like that, isn’t it? When I put out meals, I portion their plates to what I know they can eat, minus a little bit. I can not stand wasted food and watching people eat at a buffet pokes at my OCD. The boys used to be bad about this. While we rarely eat out anymore, they will eat what they take. I am always looking for ways to waste less food. read the rest of this entry »
