You put your right arm in.....

Those who follow me on twitter may know that I've had a bumpy week this week, hubby has ruptured a joint in his shoulder. Not nice i can tell you, it ended up in a trip to A&E, an x ray and now an appointment to see a surgeon next Tuesday....hmmmmm.

Definitely not the best news I could've done with, I've had to cancel my volunteer course which was due to start on Tuesday because he can only use one arm and one arm against 4kids is not a happy ratio! We were putting the house on… Continue

The Not So Lonely Firefly

A book that we enjoy over and over again with my boys is Eric Carle's, The Very Lonely Firefly. The Very Lonely Firefly. The book is about a little firefly that could not find other fireflies. It went around looking for lights, but all it could find was flashlights, cars, and even an owl. Until the end when it finally finds another firefly. In the last page of the book the fireflies light up. It is such an enjoyable book and I always love watching my…

Moms' Expectations About Infant Sleep: Is There a Connection to Actual Sleep Patterns?

A new study just released in the journal Child Development addresses an interesting issue--do moms' thoughts and expectations (i.e., cognitions) about infant sleep actually influence how well (or not so well) their babies sleep? It's an interesting idea when you think about it. The concept is that parents have certain expectations or preconceived ideas of how their child will behave, whether it be in regards to sleeping or eating, playing, etc. These expectations may actually influence how… Continue

You Can’t Judge A Food By Its Package Cover! Sunmaid Yogurt Raisins vs. Raisinets

Advertisers work hard to earn their money. They can take any food and make it sound nutritious. Very few laws protect the consumer from advertisers’ half-truths. It is up to us to learn how to tell what it a valid claim and what is just hype. How can you wade through the misleading information to find the truth? Easy… just look at the nutrition label and the ingredient list! The nutrition label and the ingredient list have all the information that you need to determine whether a food is… Continue

The Write Stuff: My Brilliant Career + Writing Class with 826LA = Kids Off The Couch

If your child dreams of being a successful author, or if they simply love to dabble in their journal, they'll appreciate My Brilliant Career, a film that had an impact on us when we were young women. Judy Davis makes her debut as Sybylla Melvyn, an impoverished Australian farm girl determined to fulfill her dream of becoming a great writer, even though it means rejecting a man she loves. Although the film's ending surprised the kids -- our modern… Continue

Working towards my goal....

I have 8 weeks to go before I hit the beach and I must admit that even thought I haven't entirely reached my goal, I am still very pleased with my progress. I am eating better and working out harder than I ever have. I know that with this combination that by the time I turn 35, just 9 weeks away, that I will have reached my be in the best shape of my adult life. I will always have room for improvement though because I don't want my journey to end with a trip or when I have a birthday… Continue

What Product Inspired Dr. Dolgoff’s First Giveaway?

This blog post contains my first giveaway. Read on to learn what product made me excited enough to want to share it with my readers. THREE readers will win this mystery product.

I woke up this morning, itching to move. I’ve been working so hard this week and didn’t work out. I started to write that I didn’t have time to work out but that’s not really true. Anybody can squeeze in a quick workout if she really wants to. It’s just a lame excuse. Even with everything I have going on, I… Continue

Oh sure, so NOW I get it!

I had one of those revelations the other day that really should have come at a much earlier point in my development. I can’t even remember what spurred it on, but I finally figured out that if I tell people what I am thinking, rather than have them figure it out on their own, things tend to go much smoother. It is so easy to misinterpret words, expressions and phrases that are bandied about without thought. I find that people either (a) give me too much credit and read way too much into what I… Continue

Do you, should you, fight in front of your kids?

An interesting conversation took place between my son and I last night. He was visibly shaken from the news that friends of ours are in the midst of a divorce. They have young children and, from his point of view, an ideal life. He could not grasp that they could really be separating. They always seemed to be so happy and he said to me, with his eyes looking up while his head bent down, "Mom, don't take this the wrong way, but if I had to pick between you and Dad or Mr. and Mrs. X. getting… Continue

The Mabel Lifestyle

I was recently sitting around with my business partners chatting about our Mabel journey. We realized that over the last few years, the Mabel lifestyle has at times been a bit crazy. We have certainly found ourselves in some pretty wacky situations. So entertaining was the discussion, it’s worth sharing a few moments.

The Early Days:

- We were working out of a tiny basement making labels until 3:00am then going home to start the day with our kiddos at 6:00am. Oh, and three… Continue

I am one with my nerd self.

I used to be cool. People used to look up to me for "coolness" and I would supply the cool to those thirsty for the cool that they were searching for. I used to be a skinny beautiful young girl who would carry a bat, beating off all the stupid boys who were vying for my attention.

I wasn't suffering from lack of dates. I used to carry a date planner and it was packed full of whats his faces numbers. Then, it all ended. I met my Captain… Continue

How Much Do I Eat to Lose Weight?

This is probably one of the top questions for anyone embarking on a new diet and fitness plan. Follow these simple instructions to determine the approximate number of calories you should be eating to lose weight. To lose a pound a week, you must create a 3,500-calorie deficit, or burn 500 calories per day more than you eat. Here is an example of how a 150-pound personal would achieve that:

Add a zero to your body weight (150 + 0) =… Continue

Body After Baby Challenge

Every Monday on Mama Notes, we come together to talk honestly about are bodies after having babies. It sure does change things doesn't it? Unless you're one of those gals born with perfect body and have stayed the same size since high school. Your body is different now that it's carried a child. Maybe your hips are wider, your skin is looser, or your muscles are weak. You're carrying an extra 5 pounds, an extra 30 pounds. You might have red stretch marks that make you feel self conscious.
