You can watch the updates on my You Tube channel HERE.The challenge I set for myself this week was to continue doing the programs I have been doing as well as drinking only water and more fruits n veggies.

It's a GO! World Food Day! #MAM

It started with just 8 people walking in our Moms Across America March during the McAllen 85th Annual Independence Day Parade. Now I am joining March Against Monsanto (and MAAM) to celebrate World Food Day! After MAAM I created an educational facebook page, GMO-Free RGV. RGV being the area where I live, the Rio Grande Valley (deep south Texas). The awareness of GMO's is very minimal and the people, including my family are in desperate need of awareness. Our culture is 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation migrants from Mexico and I would say 80% of the families know someone who use to or still does migrate to the Northern regions to pick produce in the fields. They come in direct contact with the dangerous chemicals that are sprayed. Watch my Monsanto Video Revolt Video to see my concerns.


Now comes World Food Day! It is celebrated all around the world on October 16th! There are many organizations that are celebrating and putting together event all around the world! Check out last weeks vi…

Sprouts Weekly Deals, 9/25 - 10/2

Sprouts is a local Organic/Natural food store where we usually buy our fruits and veggies and on Wednesday (when their new ad comes out) they have Double Ad Wednesday, so last weeks ad and the new ad is in effect! And they take coupons too! You can use one Sprouts coupon and one manufacture coupon per item. In my experience the printable Sprouts coupons need to be manually entered, so, just a heads up. Oh and also, Sprouts coupons is one per customer. So they are not like internet coupons, you can only print one (per computer)! Hubs now has school everyday so on Wednesdays I give him a list of items to pick up for us. And don't forget, you can also PM (price-match) at Wal-Mart.

You can find more Organic Coupons for some great items and score awesome deals by visiting MomboSprouts.com. They also have monthly contests/giveaways, so you wanna check that out to.

Visit the Sprouts website HERE and you can see the pdf weekly ad for Sprouts on their website as we…

TMB - Weight Loss Journal, Week 3

Welcome to Week 3 of my weight loss journal! I have been working out for the past month but joined a weight loss challenge hosted by Lee on Youtube. Go check his channel out, he's a great guy.


So I decided that I am going to give myself a weekly challenge. The first week it was to drink only water! And I succeeded! Week 2 was to eat Breakfast everyday before 9am! I did pretty good. And this past week it was to do 10 sit-ups and 10 push-ups everyday. That was kinda bad, I only did it for like 4 days, which isn't bad. You can watch the updates on my You Tube channel HERE.
