Keep Your Resolution On Losing Weight With The Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit From WalMart!

**I was provided a free Jenny Craig Weight Loss Start Kit. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own.**

A lot of people make the New Years resolution of losing weight. But around February, some give up. I'm here to say, DON'T! Keep trying. You can do it.

To help, I suggest picking up a Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter kit.

It's filled with a variety of meals and snacks that will last 5 days. Everything is conveniently packaged and labeled with the different meal names. You barely even have to use dishes, which is a huge plus for me since I abhor doing the dishes.

My favorites?

The zesty tortellini soup for lunch. It was flavored well. I cannot stand bland foods.

I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so I was a fan of the s'mores bar. I felt like I was eating a candy bar, only without all the calories.

I knew I was going to enjoy the White Bean Chicken Chili as soon as I opened it. I could smell the cumin. Delicious!

I won't lie, I was worried about the Cranberry Almond Barscotti. It looked sort of like bark to me. But I was impressed with the taste.

I'm a huge lover of Cheetos, but I can go overboard, so I was happy to find the Cheese Curls.

For an easy dinner, I enjoyed the Cheese Ravioli. Sometimes microwave ravioli has nothing inside, but these were packed with the cheese. The sauce was warm and tasty.

I also loved the Rotini Pasta & Meat Sauce:

I'm half asleep in the mornings, so I was happy to be able to grab the Cranberry Almond Cereal. Crunchy and filling. I've always loved cranberries.

Another easy breakfast was the Mixed Berry Bar. This was perfectly sweet.

The rest of the food in the box were tasty too, don't get me wrong. But they didn't have as big as a "mmm" factor as the items pictured according to my taste buds.

To see every item in the box, check out my unboxing video. You'll also hear my eight-year-old begging for some of the food.

The kit also contains $50 in food savings. You'll also get a suggested menu of what to eat, which I found helpful.

You also get a free month of one-on-one consultations.

You can purchase your own Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit at WalMart for $44.88.

What would you be most excited to try in the Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit?

Has Your Kid Ever Spent $100 In The Apple App Store?

I was checking my e-mail and came across one from Apple. It was a receipt from the app store. I was baffled because I hadn't bought anything from there in a while. I opened it and...

....nearly fell over from shock.

"Our credit card has been STOLEN!" I shrieked to Tom. He flinched at the high-pitched tone of my voice. "Stolen, I say...wait. Doesn't Natalie play that game?"

Tom blinked at me. It's not that he doesn't know about the children's activities--it's simply that I know more, because I'm home.

I jumped up and opened the front door. "Natalie!" I bellowed. "NATALIE!"

I imagine half the neighborhood was like, "What the living hell is going on?"

Natalie was outside with her friends and she came over and was like, "Yes?" like she hadn't just spent $100 on gems for a fictional game.

I showed her the receipt on my phone. "What's this?"

"A phone."

I don't think she was being snarky. Then again, she's nearly 9, so she probably was.

"No. You see? This receipt? You spent $100 on a game. About dragons."

Natalie peered at the screen. Recognition filtered down her face. "Oh. That."

Her friends were staring.

"Let's go inside," I suggested.

"But I'm about to--" she began, but then she saw my expression and swallowed it down.

We went inside and Tom asked her what she was thinking. Natalie hates disappointing her Daddy, so tears immediately prickled her eyes.

"I didn't know," she sniffled. "Something popped up and I said yes and...and..."

"You put in the password," I finished. She figured out the password last month. I should have changed it.

Natalie wiped her eyes. "Yes. I'm sorry. I didn't understand."

"Yes, you did," Tom boomed. "You saw that it cost money and you said yes and willingly put in the password. I'm very disappointed in you."

Natalie's face crumpled. "I'm sorry."

"You better hope we can get a refund. Otherwise no allowance until you pay it off," I said.

"Okay," Natalie answered in a quiet voice.

I started a chat with Apple. I was impressed on how quickly the chat began. The lady was very understanding--this happens a lot with children, apparently. I was given a refund. I was finished with the chat in ten minutes.

"Good news," I said to Natalie. "We're getting a refund. But. You will never get another thing without our permission. I'm changing the password."

"I'm sorry," Natalie repeated.

"Don't ever do it again," Tom warned.

"I won't," Natalie replied solemnly.

The moral of this story is to never let your kids know the password. Always have your settings as high as they can go so they aren't able to get a thing on the iPad.

Has something like this ever happened to you?

Hey, It's Okay Tuesday!

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your blog. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either. Just make sure you link up and that the post you link up is a Hey, It's Okay Post. Grab the button if you'd like!

--To be excited for the Me Before You movie. I loved the book.

--To have started watching a show on PBS called Mercy Street. It's about a nurse during the Civil War.

--To be going to Natalie's school on Thursday to help serve food at the Valentine's Day party. They don't have school on Friday because it's parent/teacher conferences.

--To have not watched the Super Bowl. Tom would turn it on now and again to see what was happening, but I was either reading, cleaning, or on the laptop. By 8 I proclaimed football to be over for the night and we watched our recorded shows.

--To be surprised that Casey Anthony, the lady acquitted of killing her poor daughter, wants to open a photography business. I don't know about anyone else, but I wouldn't want someone like that around my daughter. I still believe she had a hand in killing her daughter.

--To hope no one else gets sick. Tommy was sick last week and had to stay home for two days. Natalie was sick the week before that. I felt ill too. Tom also felt sick when Tommy was sick. No more sick in this house, please!

--To be Natalie's hero because I found a Found Nights at Freddy's shirt at Target. She loves that creepy game.
