10 Good Fiber Foods Your Kids Will Actually Want To Eat

10 Good Fiber Foods Your Kids Will Actually Want To Eat

10 good fiber foods

Happy Wednesday everyone! Last week I took my 7 year old for her yearly well visit with her doctor. We found out that she is 4 feet tall, 51 pounds, and needs some more fiber in her diet. This isn’t something that surprised me in the least.  She has had stomach issues since she was very small. (I blame her father HA!). So I left the doctors office with a plan to find out some good fiber foods that my daughter would actually eat.If you are wondering if your child may be lacking some fiber in their diet, ask them how many times they go to the bathroom a week. If it’s less than once a day, I would consider adding more fiber to their diet.  [Read more…]

Great Songs For Your Fitness Playlist!

Great Songs For Your Fitness Playlist!

fitness playlist ideas

Going to the gym used to be the part of my day I dreaded the most. I’ll be honest, I’m not the most active person, and I will never be one of those people that genuinely enjoy working out, sadly. But the more I do it, the more tolerable it becomes. One thing I absolutely must have when working out, is my music! Nothing makes a work out go more smoothly than a great fitness playlist. No matter what type of music you like, there is something out there that will get you pumped and ready to make it through your work out. On a normal basis, I am a rock and top 40 kind of gal, but in the gym, there is nothing I love more than some gansta rap, HA! There is just something about it that makes me work that much harder. So with that in mind I thought I would share some great songs for your fitness playlist from all genres of music! I hope you enjoy! [Read more…]

Happy Saturday everyone! Today is an exciting day for me, it’s my daughters first soccer game! We have been in the dance studio for the past 2 years, so this is a big leap for her. I supported her decision to try something new, but let me tell you, I never thought I would be a soccer mom. I’m not a huge sports fan (other than UK basketball and UFC) but I will be turning in to one now! [Read more…]

If you have been around for awhile then you might know that I’m been pretty in to fitness lately. Now mind you, I’m not at gym rat status yet, and I still love pizza (hints why I have to go to the gym in the first place), but I can say that I don’t hate going to the gym, score! I also had a birthday recently and I asked for pretty much anything fitness related on my list.  [Read more…]

Lemon Water Weight Loss Recipe

Lemon Water Weight Loss

I was skeptical. I also do not need to lose any weight. I do however workout 5 days a week and I have that layer of something over my abs. I am pretty sure it is cupcakes. It could have resulted by having three babies. It does however need to leave. I am tired of it. I decided the one diet I would do is to change what I was drinking. I drink Spark which I love. What is Spark? I also drink milk but then i have a sweet tea issue. I got rid of sweet tea for two weeks and replaced it with Lemon Water Weight

Lemon Water Weight Loss

1 Pitcher of water

Ice

2 lemons

1 cucumber

1 sprig of mint

Combine the ingredients above.

I drank 5 glasses a day. The question is did it work? Can you lose weight by just drinking lemon water? I mean does drinking water lose weight?  I wasn’t actually trying to lose weight. I want to lose the extra belly layer. The answer was yes. I didn’t lose weight on the scale but I did lose the layer. I think I needed to hydrate. I was retaining water because I wasn’t drinking enough and I do believe the lemon water helped. I would also like to say that increasing my water consumption also resulted in clear skin. The water was refreshing and I still drink it. I just make a pitcher and place it in my refrigerator.
