Welcome to the fabulous and sometimes insane life
of a working mother who is trying hard not to
let her whole existence be determined by her
cute little munchkins, yet continues to be drawn
in by the adorable and sometimes annoying tiny people!

My sister and I are both trying to lose weight. She has lost a total of over 65 pounds. Can I hear a WOOT! WOOT! for Leslie? She has been working her tail off for quite sometime, and has really helped me in my weight loss journey. Granted, thanks to genes, I did not have near as much weight to lose. I inherited my mothers genes and she inherited my dear father's genes. Therefore, she has had to work much harder! I am so proud of her dedication. I have watched her count out chips and then roll up and put away the bag so she can't get any more. Me...I have a hard time not gorging myself. She is my inspiration! Do it, Sissypants!!

What she has taught me is that everything you put into your mouth counts. That one Hershey's Kiss, that one Lay's potato chips (of course you can't have just one), that one drink, be it a sweet tea, coke, or beer. The drinks or one drink is what inspired this post!

She developed a super delicious, refreshing, and diet concoction. I am calling it Cran-A-Licious! You will love it even if you don't like cranberry juice. 
Passion Fruit or Rasberry Rum, 
Diet Cranberry or Cranberry Promegrante juice, 
Sprite Zero

Place ice in cup. Pour 1 ounce of rum in glass. Pour enough juice in cup to color rum, We usually fill the glass to about half way. Top of the drink with the Sprite. Stir well and enjoy your 60 calorie drink!!
