Simple Gal: My fav apps

Yup, just like the title says... when it comes to apps on my phone, i'm a simple gal. And I actually don't have cell service, no one calls me anyways, lol. I cancelled my service back in November to use that $55 for a gym membership. Did that happen? No, lol. Oh well. We can use that $55 for something else. So, I do use my phone when there is wifi. Other than that, i'm using my laptop.

I'm not big on having a lot of clutter on my phone, plus I use my phone to take pics and video for my youtube channel as well. My phone slows down when I have too many apps, so I do have a few that I download to just use for a day or two. I don't have any games or dumb apps, cus, well, they're dum, lol.

So here are just the apps that I am currently using and I love...
These are on my home screen (well, second screen). Then on my Apps page I also have
  • Calendar, Google+, and Messenger.
Others that I download to use occasionally are the Cartwheel app, Ibotta, Checkout 51 and Runkeeper, which I wish I used more.

The one app I wish I could use DAILY is MFP (My Fitness Pal), but I have a love/hate relationship with that darn thing. I also use to have FlyLady app, which just took up too much room, and the Cozi Calendar, which I also loved, but now I have the Yahoo Calendar that I use for my blog and other daily reminders, events and such, so it works. I also had c25k app on my phone, but since I finished it, I took it off. I highly recommend that if you are a beginner runner, it's a 8 week program, starts slow and then you add more running time as you go!

So tell, me, what are your fav apps? Do you have one that you love and recommend? Please share. Also, go to my FB page and feel free to share your homescreen or lockscreen photo!!

MPM - Daddy Dinners - 1/19/15

Happy Martin Luther King Day!! How are you celebrating... i'm sitting on my rocking chair, bundled up and watching Mikey Mouse, lol. Well, mama is still sick and Eliada didn't have school today, lol. I had plans, but since I went to the ER, I've felt horrible! I wanted to go help with a clean up and later this evening there is an event in downtown McAllen, 5th Annual MLK Day at El Cine del Rey. Anywho, so this weeks menu is brought to you by hubby! I'll probably cook dinner once, besides heating up some soup. Pray for me, lol. But seriously, when my kidney stones move, i'm curled up in the fetal position.

Breakfast: Oatmeal, fruit, smoothie, biscuits
Lunch: Soup, Salad, Fruit, crackers

Monday: Chicken stir-fry (didn't have it last week)

Tuesday: Chicken Soup with rice

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Sandwiches

Friday: Pizza

Yeah, I'm making him make the stir-fry cus I bought zucchini last week, lol other than that, he says he's just going to HEB to get what he needs for that day, ugh. MEN! I can get up and make dinner, but when I walk around too much, I pay for it later that day. It sucks!

Oh and I've been eating a lot of fruit with high water content, to help with the kidney stones, and smoothies. I'm gonna try out this recipe (I pinned it on my pinterest, "Recipes to Try" board and here's the link to Budget Bites if you want to check it out, how to make smoothie packs!

Weekly Family Vlogs!

Life! Life happens, it's a great journey and 2014 was so eventful that I thought we'd attempt capturing our lives each week and then post a vlog with all the clips! How fun right?! Well, if ya'll know, I have had a channel on Youtube for over four, maybe five years! WOW, and my videos have NEVER been consistent. I have done several collabs and things like VEDA and stuff, but this will be so much more fun. I already have our first one up, and I plan on capturing footage from Saturday - Friday, and upload on Friday or Saturday :) Check out the first one below... let me know if there is anything you'd like to see. My blog name is The Mami Blog, mami, being the Spanish word for Mommy (pronounced the same), so I want to incorporate more traditions from the valley. So excited! Be sure to subscribe to get each video.

Ohh and one more thing. I'm also going to attempt to do videos to post on Monday & Wednesday, so I don't bore ya'll with my life, lol, so, suggest what videos you'd like to see :)

Trip to the ER!

Usually, when the whole family gets sick, mami is the only who stays healthy and takes care of everyone. Well, last night after dinner, I took a turn for the worst. Short post but wanted to share and document.

It's no secret taht I hate doctors, not because I hate medicine, but because they rarley get to the root of the problem. I'm all about prevention. I'm sure it has to do with my fathers story. He was in so much pain for so long and 8 days before he past, he was finally diagnosed with cancer.

So, two days ago I had pain in my hip and down my leg, but I was able to sleep. It woke me up once and went to the potty. The next day, I was fine during the day and then pain was in and out for the rest of the day. I also had cold symptoms, stuffy nose, coughing and sneezing. Then when I got up to sweep and get ready to get ready to take a shower the pain got very bad. I was bent over and after I got out, I realized I didn't wash my hair! lol So, I went to go lay down in bed and I knew I was not going to go to bed, I knew it. Pain was like at a 8. Almost as bad as when my water broke!! yeah, that bad. So hubby came and asked if it was time to go to the hospital and at first I said no, but then like 5 minutes later I called him back into the bedroom and said, "Yes, let's go!"

It was 2am... we didn't live till 5:30am! Not too bad. While in the hospital, I'm glad my pain went away, but then it came back with a vengeance and made me throw-up! Gross. I hate vomiting! The doctor was already going to take me home, but then asked if there was history of galstones and I said, no, but there is with Kidney stones, my dad had them twice. So I was sent for a CT scan of my abdomen and sure enough....

Two Kidney stones, one in each kidney, an ovarian cyst in my left ovary and a viral infection! Oh joy! I went in with one problem and walked out with four diagnosis and NO MEDS!

So, now I'm here sitting on my couch, in pain, and just having to wait it out. Obviously I have to go see my reg doctor or OBGYN to deal with the cyst, but focusing on the darn stones first. Any tips? I was reading, now I need to stay away from healthy food?! lol Drink lots of water and rest. How fun, right?! I guess I'll be doing lots of crocheting this weekend.

I had plans, everything is on hold, the house is a mess and it won't be fun. Hopefully they pass by Monday, MLK day!
