When I find a good thing... I pass it on! This is one of MY FAVORITE THINGS I own!

It's Revlon's ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor. I have it in Always Sienna. One coat on the lips, let it dry (make sure you get it where you want it), add some gloss, and VIOLA!! Color is on until you literally take it off!!

I kiss my girls all day long, especially the baby, and it doesn't come off. It actually takes a bit of work to get it off at night with makeup remover, but boy is it worth it!

You may need to reapply some gloss here and there, but it's fabulous! Especially when teaching my classes and presenting! Love it!! ~Amanda

Thank You!

Here's the outfit from sweet Raphael at BodyWorks - thank you!

So cute on her!

My Before & After

April 19th (almost 3 weeks after baby). I'm in jeans, but they were my 'big girl' jeans. You can tell I'm pretty weighty in the middle.

Sept 24th (almost 6 months after baby) I love my new pants!

I'm almost to my original weight before having Brooke. It's taken me a while just to get here, but I'm on my way - at least I can see the light now!

The 'Turbo 10-day Slim Down Challenge' helped me a lot to kick-start it. Doing some workout - even if it wasn't at the gym - kept the calorie-burning going. I'm going to try P90X now to see if that will get me my next results. More to come...

Even Celebs do P90X from BeachBody!

This is Roselyn Sanchez - she is on "Without a Trace" as a sultry sleuth.

This is what she says: "My hips. My legs. My stomach used to be really flat, but now I have to be careful with what I eat." She keeps in shape with P90X, a 90-day workout plan that has 12 DVDs designed to target a different area of the body. "I swear by it," says Sanchez, who's been doing the program every morning for six months. "Every girl needs to give it a try. It will change your body!"
Courtesy of TV Guide (June 30-July 13 edition).

(As Seen on
You might know Jennie Garth from the show "90210". She toned up for her comeback role on the NEW 90210 by working out five days a week with husband (actor Peter Facinelli) to trainer Tony Horton's P90X DVDs. "Every day is different," she says. "One day is really hard yoga. Then arms and shoulders, legs, then karate. His program is made to confuse the muscles so you don't plateau. I feel better now than I ever have."

2 Week Mark

I'm in jeans! When Brooke & I hit the 2 week mark, I tried on my jeans. (Granted, they are one size too big normally for me - got them instead of maternity ones!) But they fit! I was very happy because I love wearing jeans!

When I find a good thing - I tell you. Here are two things that I've liked from Shaklee for over 8 years now you can like it too!

This is a shake I give to my girls for breakfast or as a snack if they haven't eaten much during the day. They LOVE them and request them every morning - it's usually the bavarian chocolate one that they opt for, but the vanilla one is good too. If you have a picky eater...this comes in handy!

I love this protein powder in just water, in orange juice or whipped up in some vanilla yogurt, milk and maybe a banana or berries. Yum and it's smooth!

More good stuff at the link to the right (scroll down) - first link called Get Clean - Go Organic.

Length: 20.5"
Personality: Awesome - super sweetie!

So who got it right and voted GIRL? Congrats to you on a good guess! We were a bit surprised, but not surprised, and oh so happy with this little bundle of joy! She sure is a new gem and the girls just adore her. We couldn't be happier and are so glad she's joined our family. We are officially a party of 5! It's amazing to have a new baby in the house again! I got home yesterday - Thursday, and I'm grateful to have my mom here (with Chris) from CA helping us out with everything. Thanks mom!

It's been a physical, emotional, and spiritual experience for me personally and I am just honored to be a mother once again. I am in awe of the creation, the development, and the birth of a new life - truely a blessing to be a part of in every way. I love being a mother to my 3 girls and I look forward to all of the growth yet to come with all of them.

All my love to you and yours! ~Amanda

Mom & baby are doing great!

Dad is still King of our castle... with a new princess!

Big sisters -Morgan & Kelli- are SO loving their new little sis!!

I made them cute new BIG SIS shirts too!

This is me at 38 weeks just before class at Tone Up! What did I teach? Turbo Kick of course!! =) It's definately harder to breathe and I burned 615calories that night in just 45 min! My heart rate is way up. Wednesday was my last class with the diehard Turbo Kickers at Body Works in Wake Forest - nice going ladies!
So now it's Friday and I have just a couple of days left and then it's BABY time on Monday morning! This week has totally flown by for me and I only taught 2 classes!

I will miss all of my classes and especially everyone that joins me in them!! Can't wait to be back to normal already so I can get back in the gym! ;) Happy Spring and I'll see you in the summertime!
