Healthy Mexican Food

Mexican food doesn't need to be filled with cheese and fat. In fact, traditional Mexican food is not like that at all. That is our Americanized perception.

Here is some information:

I am going to a Mexican potluck, and I am trying to find a food to bring that my husband will eat. In the end, I think I am just going to bring salsa and chips.

Progress Update: Body for Life

Well, I have two more workouts to go for this week- one cardio, and one lower body and abs. I don't see any reason why I can't do both of them today.

At first, I was just doing the challenge on my own. But, part of me is thinking that doing the original challenge will be a lot of fun.

You can find information on it at the website.

Save Money Online Shopping

This is a sponsored post.

What do you do when you want to shop online? Chances are you search for what you need, find the website, and then make the purchase. However, online shopping can also be about saving money... and making it. I just learned of this site called This is a site where you can earn cash back on purchases you make online, such as target. They offer a free membership and there are around 800 online stores to choose from. When it comes to shopping, getting opportunities to earn money or get money back for my purchases is always a good thing. I've recently begun this program to be more conscious of my spending and save money. is a site that can help me do that. There are some websites out there who try to give you cash back but as far as I can tell, this is one of the best.

Keeping an organized home

When things get busy, one of the first things that gets neglected is my sense of household organization. I am a work at home writer. When I have a deadline, the last thing I want to worry about is the laundry or the dishes. But thanks to the flylady, she helps me get things under control... somewhat.

What I love is that she encourages us to take things one step at a time and don't beat myself up if I neglect something.

Finally... snow

All those talks in Paris this week about Global Warming have been quite enlightening. Of course, most of us have figured out that something is really not right with the climate. Polar bears are drowning, the ice in the arctic is melting, we've hardly gotten any snow here in New England and we've actually seen near 70 degree days, and there are climate related catastrophes all over the place. But who's to say how much of it is normal and how much is man made? Well anyway, it finally snowed more than an inch. My bet is that it will be melted by the end of the week.

Recruiting Field


When it comes to the recruiting, maintaining high quality standards and a good series of protocols is essential. Basically, a recruiter is someone who is hired by a company to go out there and fill positions. It is a third party who goes through the effort of looking for qualified candidates so the employer doesn't have to. But, there are risks involved. That is why risk management is so important. When you can find a way to manage the situation, you will have a greater liklihood of finding the right people for the job. And this goes for any career field.

More Exercise = Cravings for Protein

Well, as I exercise more, I feel my nutritional needs shifting. My muscles need protein to feed them and make them stronger. For a while, I had no interest in protein rich foods. Perhaps it was because I wasn't hitting the weights as hard? The key is to get a nice balance between healthy carbs and protein and honor my food cravings.

Antioxidant Multivitamins for Greater Health

I was thinking about antioxidants and how important they are for your health. Free radicals can really be a problem. These unstable cells can grow and proliferate and cause all kinds of health problems.

Of course, it is ideal to make sure you get enough in your diet. But your diet should be supplemented with antioxidant multivitamins. Just find a formula that suits your lifestyle and needs.
