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

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. A… Continue

I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm now waddling. (In case you're wondering, I also joined the pregnant bloggers club, but no one seems to read it). Anyway, if you didn't guess, yes, I'm expecting. I'm now six and a half months along, having a boy. We all know it's going to happen, there's no avoiding it. I've been trying to get some exercise for the health of the baby, as well as for "an easier delivery". Uh huh. So, on days when I don't feel like absolute crap and the weather is nice,… Continue

ET loves his daycare. We love his daycare. What we don't love? Hand Foot Mouth Disease, which we aren't sure if he has or not. Regardless, he has something that is viral.
He is good. We are good. Life is good.
I laugh in the face of illness.

My son was so bad yesterday! He was defiant, mouthy, kept hitting, kicking and throwing things...and I don't even want to talk about once we left church! I said to myself..." I knew this day would come....the day when I could use a Mom-Free day." He was on my crap list. I actually had to put him punishment for half a day! To be honest, I didn't feel that bad either. Got mom woo's, share them in a comment! I'm sure a lot of us can relate!

Today was night one of putting the baby to sleep without a bottle of milk, and letting him comfort himself! I must say irs harder then it sounds! To hear his cry broke my heart! I wanred to hold him and sqeeze him! It would have been alot easier for us to just give in but we dud it! I ended up sitting in his room and put sime classical mysic that he normally listens to on , and he finally flipped onto his belly and fell asleep! He did need to know I was there but at least that kept him from… Continue

We all know what is required of a Disney princess! Cinderella, Snow White, Ariel, Jasmine, et al. Will Disney's newest and first black princess join this mega-popular line-up? Will she measure up? Will the Black community be happy with her? Undoubtedly!
We Black parents are excited...but a little bit worried...http://tinyurl.com/Blackprincess

My last blog was on content and setting up your website. Great! Well I received a few emails from readers who said
"Why didn't you start with Keywords"
Good question! Why didn't I? Maybe I assumed that you know that you should do really good keyword research prior to posting content to your site. Or maybe I want you to write about your product/service from your heart! Make it emotional I said! Right? I truly believe that when you write something about your product the… Continue

I went to my lovely friend (mummy B's) house again on Friday for our weekly get together, I look forward to seeing her so much and our kids get on really well.
We have a range of ages when all our brood are together, my 3year old is only a month older than mummy B's little boy and her 8month old boy fills the age gap between my pudding and 19month old. It is like a mini nursery when they're all together as they run up and down the house following each other like a gaggle of geese.… Continue

My First Session with Dr. Facebook
by Pam Victor
I’m just going to come right out and put it on the table here. I suffer from C.A.P.S. (Cyber Addictive Personality Syndrome,) and I am seeking help for my Facebook addiction. This confession is the first step of my therapy with Dr. Facebook.
Ironically, I heard about Dr. Facebook online. Typically, I try to ignore those insulting advertisements on the right side of my screen. Wondering if the sinewy grasp of Facebook’s… Continue

I have a wedding anniversary coming up and if you asked me how long I've been married I couldn't tell you. It's not that I don't care, I just don't remember. It's a numbers thing with me. Can't add, subtract or recall them in any way, shape, or form. I admit that I am numerically challenged. I rode the "special" bus with the other mathematically dim children when I was in elementary school.
I was married in a beautiful Pacific Heights mansion overlooking the San Francisco Bay. My… Continue

Thanks to the wonderful people at Silver Cross and Amy Jonston at Wolfstar my Halo buggy arrived today for me to review and try out.
The Halo's main feature is the unique elliptical frame (the ‘halo’ around the child) which delivers exceptional protection and simple flexibility. It also Converts to a complete travel system with the Ventura car seat.
I can honestly say it is the best buggy I have ever had. With 2wheels to click on and the hood to be attached (which also… Continue
