Exercise High and Similac Beetles....

I'm so glad I went back to Zumba after Andie was born. It's amazing how fast that hour goes by when your shakin' your ass to that loud Latin music! I felt extra motivated tonight for some reason and I really pushed myself and it felt AMAZING!! Tonight was the second time I've gone this week so I hope that reflects at this weeks weigh in!

Exercising like that even motivated me to get back on track with eating and tracking! I haven't by any means gone off track as far as my food choices are concerned, just slacked a little on measuring and tracking.

Speaking of eating... I made the most amazing dinner last night. I found a recipe on and amended it a little bit. The recipe was called Baja Taco Blitz. I started with a 96% fat free tortilla (2 points) top with grilled chicken, cubed (3 points), a squeeze of lime, sauted(w/cooking spray) sweet onions and bell peppers, fat-free sour cream, and green taco sauce. It was an instant hit, not only with me but my whole family!

Alright, WTF (please excuse my obscene letters) is with the beetles in Similac? Oh yes it's true.

And guess who had 3 containers of recalled formula? That'd be me.

Next, guess who didn't have any other fomula in the house? Me again.

And Last, Guess who got to run to the store in the middle of the night, stand in front of the baby formula twiddling their thumbs because she had absolutely no idea what to look for in a different formula? Yep, you got it. Me.

I was so mad last night I'm sure there was steam coming from my ears as I walked through the store when I was getting new formula. But, now that I've cooled now and my baby isn't drinking beetles anymore I think this may have been a blessing in disguise. The new Enfamil brand I chose is doing wonders for my sweet little Monkey's gas problems! Needless to say, when the recall is over and the formula is "safe" again we won't be buying Similac.

I'm glad it's all figured out now, and Andie slept for 7 hours last night-she must have been relieved too....

    And yes, Enfami is wonderful...can't say it enough. My daughter was very particular about what formula she would take and only Enfamil would do the trick. This time around with my son, I haven't even tried another brand...just stuck with what I knew was great! Good luck with it, and I hope the sleeping trend continues!

    I've been struggling with weight fluctuations for years since I had my kids but am currently trying these diet pills...i'm no stranger to them but I hate when I try something and it makes me jittery. I went a year with just trying to work out and it built too much muscle. so i found these pills that don't make you jitter and gives you tons of energy...just one a and effective...that's all i fed my gross! makes you wonder if we should all starve...nothing is safe these days:)
