#NSNation Monday: Time to Lose the Holiday Weight!

As most of you know, I recently lost just over 50lbs. When the doctor told me that I was around 200 lbs, I decided that is it. Time to get my life back on track. If not for me, for my daughters. Well as the holidays tend to do, they messed up my routine a bit. I was not working out and I was not eating right. My husband, my sister-in-law, my nephew, my cousin’s son, and my youngest daughter have birthdays around the holidays so there was a lot of family get togethers with a lot of cake. That is why I am so thankful that I am a part of #NSNation for the next several months!

Make Canning Easy with These Ball® Products! | #BallCanning

As most of you know, I have my own garden. I grow veggies and fruits and then spend several weeks creating salsas, sauces, jams, jellies, etc and canning them. I love to come up with different salsas – just throwing in what has ripened and playing with flavors. Every year, I make several different jams and jellies – usually pepper, cherry, & strawberry at a minimum. I like to have these at my disposal – but because they are more or less strict recipes with no room for imagination (like the salsa), they can get tedious to make. So when I found out that Ball® has an Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker – well, to say I was very excited is an understatement!
