The Pioneer Woman's Donut Story and a Trim Healthy Mama

This week, I am implementing some "new things" into my life.  Namely a book called "Trim Healthy Mama"… also known as "THM".  I ordered it after having read quite a bit about it on various blogs and on Pinterest.  My friend Cinnamon on "Knights and Maidens Gathering" has been talking about and following the THM book for several months now, and she got me intrigued.  I finally ordered it several  weeks ago.  I really like all that I am reading and am beginning to make out my recipe and grocery list for the week.  So here goes… I am blogging it… and now I am committed right?   I'm not saying I will do any "before and afters" on the blog; I'm not that brave yet… but I might mention how I am doing with it now and then, and will publish recipes at times that are compatible with it, along with some of my standard family recipes.  I am excited to begin.  I have not completely finished the book yet, but have gotten the "gist" of it, and it is right up my alley in terms of healthful habits and the food we eat, and I feel as if I can add it as a supplement to the "Eating Well" thoughts I have had in my own conclusions about food.  I am looking forward to balancing my hormones and blood sugar as well as loosing some weight.  While I was reading the THM book, I also happened to read Pioneer Woman's "Donut Story".  Now if you haven't read that story yet, get ready for a good laugh.  I can completely relate to her in this story… sounds like something I would do… so I couldn't resist linking it here as I begin my THM lifestyle…  a reminder that we are all human and…. well as I said we can all use a good laugh right?  Read it for yourself.  It's called  "All I wanted was a Donut" : To me laughter is a wonderful fuel for life.

Also, here is a link to Trim Healthy Mama.  Click on it and then click on their video if you want some info about it… they are cute girls, and I loved their video….I think you will be blessed by it as well.

Here's to a new Year of health and laughter.  Have a great week everyone.


  1. Hello There!

    Oh man, I needed a good laugh at that story about the doughnut was hilarious! It might be something I could have done considering I'm a klutz on a good day. (And that's why I would rather have a prepackaged bag of doughnuts) Smiles!

    I can relate to what you are saying about being healthy and watching sugars and just trying to eat healthier foods. I'm ready!

    I hope you have a wonderful week!


  2. Yes, I love this Mom! I can't wait to hear more about it and how it works! We have been working on cutting out sugar and white flour here, 'sniff' but I am so excited to feel better and not be tired anymore! Oh and I about woke up Winston from his nap laughing so hard after reading that donut story!! HA!!!

    I LOVE YOU!!

  3. Happy New Year to you! Time for me to catch up on some blog reading now!

  4. Hi Pam~ I enjoy the Pioneer Woman. I'll have to go check out her story this afternoon :)

    I'm so glad you're starting. It is amazing how good you will feel in just a few days and the most amazing part is you won't feel hungry/starving like a lot of "diets" leave you feeling. That's just it THM isn't a "diet".

    I would encourage you to take your measurements, date them, then tuck them away. Check them out in a couple months and re-measure. You will be amazed.

    I'm peeking at your Pinterest boards and enjoying all you share there.

    So what are you putting on the THM menu this week? I just tried Overnight Cinnamon Raisin Chia Pudding. Yummo!! I didn't have raisins but it was still delicious.

    Have a super day!


  5. Okay just for the record!!!
    I read the doughnut story yesterday on this post, but after reading it I was so distracted and in shock over it, I forgot to leave a comment!
    I laughed so hard...
    All I wanted was a donut!
    Love Ya, Roxy

  6. I laughed so hard I have tears in my eyes. I would just have to find a hole, crawl in, and never come out again I would be that mortified!

    I'm reading backward through all your posts so I can catch up. Can't wait to try those flax buns!
