BreakPal – Fitness at Your Desk

BreakPal – Fitness at Your Desk

I spend a lot of time at my desk in my home office. Too much to be honest. While I have been doing the walking thing and trying to be healthier I thought I still needed more. A few weeks ago my friend Zippy had a review and giveaway on her blog, Champagne Living, for a BreakPal membership. I entered (of course) and was thrilled that I won! So for … Continue Reading →
Walking & Talking

Walking & Talking

For the past several weeks I have been walking every day. I am way out of shape, but I am proud of myself for getting out there and doing it. Hubby and/or T always walks with me. They are very supportive of me trying to get in better shape. Along with being healthy for us it is also a nice time to just talk. We are a pretty talkative family … Continue Reading →

CPR Anytime Giveaway!

Do you all remember my review of the CPR Anytime Kit earlier this month? I really think this is a fantastic product and was thrilled that I was able to review it from Mom Central and the American Heart Association. I was so thrilled that I asked if they would like to offer up another kit as a prize for my readers and they did! Even if you have learned … Continue Reading →
CPR Anytime – American Heart Association

CPR Anytime – American Heart Association

As I briefly mentioned last week I had a trip to the emergency room. At the time I went I honestly had no idea what was wrong with me as I felt so lousy, I was really worried it was something with my heart though. I am overweight and do not take care of myself (I’m working on it) the way I should. The entire day was very scary. Ironically, … Continue Reading →

Win a Digital Video Camera & Help Save a Life!

It is amazing how I keep finding out little things I have in common with so many of the other folks I’ve met thru blogging and twitter. Recently I learned that Amy aka Resourceful Mommy is the mom of a preemie; T was also a preemie. Then I found out that Amy participates in the March of Dimes annual March for Babies as Team Emma. She is looking to meet … Continue Reading →

I Don’t Want To Miss…

I mentioned last week everyone here had the sniffles, we are all ok now. However, as T gets older him becoming sick really will start interfering with his social life. When the kids are younger it’s not quite as big of a deal and we talk about prevention a lot but then that sort of falls to the wayside as they grow up. Well, as teens they have more important … Continue Reading →
“Down There” Treatment Options

“Down There” Treatment Options

This is not a normal topic for me on my blog, but it’s an important topic and I have some info to share. I know there are a lot of us who really dislike going to the OB/GYN, but it’s a girl fact of life. Here is a statistic for you: The US News & World reported that, out of the one in four women who receive hysterectomies, approximately 85% … Continue Reading →

As flu season draws closer, we suddenly start hearing the sounds of coughs, sneezes, and groans from people caught in the traps of sickness. But you and your family do not have to be one of them. Families Fighting Flu, a non-profit organization made up of parents who have lost a child to the flu, partnered on the Say “Boo!” to the Flu program to help educate families about the … Continue Reading →
