Getting kids into gardening!

Gardening can be super fun for the children and the adults. Hard work does pay off when you use some little mommy techniques. I did alot of gardening for my mom when I was young and the work was awful.

When I grew up I thought Id never put my kids thru that. Then two years ago I decided I wanted a garden. I wasnt gonna make my kids work in it though. That year I learned alot.

Amaze Them:

There are many things about children and the most thing I can think of is that they never seem to stop being amazed as long as you dont stop trying to amaze them.

I have great boys and one year in our garden we decided to write there names in the pumkins and see how they turned out. Much to my surprise they were great.

We decided to plant pumkins. Along with various other stuff but pumkins seemed to be our great triumph. The boys helped me plant the seeds and then I did the labor of getting them to sprout and loving them. They watched with no patience.

After about 2 months they were ready. I went out one morning and tried my art work then turned them over so it wouldnt be noticed till a later date.

As they grew I was eager to se the results. About 1 month later I discovered the pumpkins were ready. I was pleased with my results.

When they time was right I sent my boys out to harvest the pumkins and much to there surprise it was grown just for them. So from that monent on I have had help in my garden for the pure purpose of anticipation

Heres what you do:

After you have planted pumpkins and they are still green but big enough to write on, find a sharp object like a stick. On a green pumpkin write your child's name on it. When your pumpkins turns orange have your kids harvest the pumpkins and pay close attention to the names on each. The name you put on will now look like the pumpkin grew in your garden just for them...the engraving will look like part of the pumpkin.

Weightloss thoughts

Do you ever wonder what is making it so hard for some of us to lose weight? It is said to be proven that eating several times a day in small portions can really assist weight lose.

What diets do they have for those of us who have no appetite problem and still cant gain weight? This question has boggled my mind for years. I a desperate to lose weight and would like the answers But all anyone ever says is eat less, excercise ect ect. I have had my health checked and there is nothing wrong but yet to no evail even the doctors tell me to eat less. I only consume about 1000 calories a day. And yes Ive went back to one meal a day because eating more makes me fatter.

I want to know then why is it I gain. I count calories, take Acai herbs (rachel Ray Diet) , and if I eat more than once a day I gain ten pounds in a week No Joke! So tell me....waht are the choices we have here.

Weight lose choices Eating multiple times a day:

If a person eats more times a day it is to prevent the body from going into starvation mode. Meaning only eating once a day tells your body that it isnt getting enough to sustain all its needs and therefor everything you do eat the body stores. Thus you have the weight gain.

If a person has no appetite all those appetite surpressant remedies are to no evail to us. And eating several times a day is way way hard. This increased eating acan also lead these people to gain way more weight before they level out there body and lose anything. Gaining weight is by far the hardest part to endure if your on a weight lose mission.

Weight lose pills:

There are several of these out there also. Green tea, Slim Quick,Cleanse formulas, Lypotrim, Slim Fast, the list goes on. Then you have the one I currently use Acai . This like the other promise the same results and yet to no evail.

I ask you what pills have you used and did any truely help you lose your weight? Most of the high dollar pills have a cost that well outweighs the success of the product.

Best Bet Diet:

As far as remedies to MY weight problem there seems to be none. If you know otherswise then please let me know. I think it is true the old fashion way is the best way to get it done right. Hard work and lots a grueling exercise. There seems to be no other real choices left that truely work. And to be the biggest loser you must be the hardest worker.
