Take that First Step with Jenny Craig 5-Day Weight Loss Starter Kit

I was provided a free Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit and compensation. However, the opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

Let's face it ladies, trying to lose weight is hard, but trying to lose weight alone is even harder. No matter what our "ideal" weight is, it can be a struggle to get there and to stay there. We've all been there a time or two - whether it's 20 lbs or 100 lbs or more, we struggle with losing weight. We're always looking for that miracle fix, right? Well, why not let someone help you this time? 

Getting to that healthy point and staying there for the rest of our lives can be a rough journey. I know. After hitting menopause 20 lbs crept up on me before I knew it. That extra weight caused me to not be able to wear many of my clothes that hang in my closet...and that's frustrating. Isn't our number one goal in losing weight to feel good and be healthy? I think so. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it. That's why I say find a partner or neighbor to walk with, or take up an exercise program and find a good meal program like Jenny Craig

So no matter how much weight you set out to lose, it's those first few steps we may need help with, or perhaps it's the weeks into our journey that's the hardest. Where ever you are in your weight loss journey, Jenny Craig counselors can help you stay on track and reach your weight loss goals with their proven program.

The LEGO Movie 4D at LEGOLAND Discovery Center is Back!!


Emmet, Wyldstyle and Friends Reunite in All-New, Totally Original, 4D Movie 
Debuting Feb. 27 Only at LEGOLAND®

DALLAS, TEXAS (January 5, 2016) – For the first time ever, LEGOLAND® Parks are offering a look at an exciting new theme park attraction that reunites the stars of “The LEGO® Movie™” in an all-new story appearing exclusively at LEGOLAND® theme parks and LEGOLAND® Discovery Centers.

The 30-second trailer released today gives fans the first glimpse of what happened after the blockbuster movie, when Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny reunite at the invitation of a shady new character, Risky Business, who plans to open a curious theme park bearing a suspicious resemblance to LEGOLAND®.

Returning to voice their iconic characters are actors Elizabeth Banks (Wyldstyle), Nick Offerman (MetalBeard), Charlie Day (Benny) and Alison Brie (Unikitty). Actor, writer and comedian Patton Oswalt lends his voice to the scheming Risky Business, whose Evil Secret Plot requires the heroes to call on the Master Builder skills of a surprise ally to save the day.

“The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” premieres Saturday, February 27, 2016 at LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Dallas/Fort Worth.  Included in the price of admission, the short 3D film will play several times a day, with “4D” effects such as wind, water, fog and more bringing the action bursting off the screen and into the audience.

Los Angeles-based Pure Imagination Studios is creating “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” with input from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the talented writer-directors who brought “The LEGO® Movie™” to life, along with contributions from Rob Schrab, who is directing the movie’s eagerly awaited sequel, due in 2018.

Also upcoming for LEGO fans are three more feature films:  The as-yet-untitled LEGO BatmanTM opens on February 10, 2017; “NINJAGO,” on September 22, 2017; and “The LEGO Movie Sequel,” on May 18, 2018.

Mean Green Quinoa Bowl Recipe

I love a one-bowl meal, don't you? What I like better is a quick and simple one-bowl meal. And what I like better than that is it being a healthy bowl!! That's what you'll find with this recipe. The recipe below is for one person.

Quinoa is considered a superfood and is known for it's nutty flavor. It can be added to so many dishes, either knowingly or inconspicuous. It's nothing for me to had quinoa to my morning oatmeal, and I even sneak a little in my son's oatmeal. He never knows. Being one of a few plant foods that are considered as a complete protein, you'll want to keep quinoa as a staple in your kitchen.
