It's been over a month after the birth of my baby and I've managed to lose a bit of weight. My prenatal weight was 57 kg and three days before I put to bed I weighed 74 kg. Now, a month after delivering my baby, I’m just a little over 62 kg. So yay me!
It's well known that mothers who breastfeed burn about 500 calories a day, so its very important to top by eating, albeit eating healthy.…

Since being either pregnant or breastfeeding for the last three and a half years, I haven’t really spent a lot of money on clothes. Or bought many clothes at all for that matter. Why bother when I’m a new size every month? I didn’t bother with maternity clothes since I am far to frugal to buy pricey maternity…Continue
Once my children enter the house after a day at school, they take off their school clothes, "get comfortable" and then wash their hands. Throughout the day, they're washing their hands after a visit to the bathroom,…Continue

We think all moms' bodies are beautiful. So we asked moms around the world to show us their mummy tummies!
I like Dial body washes so much that when they're on sale, I stock up! It's affordable and it's something that local centers can appreciate when you donate a box to them! Who wouldn't want to feel clean and smell good?

When I was young(er), I played sports, worked out often and did something a lot of kids do not do today...I played outside! I tried a different brand of sports drink during my active years and never liked them. The taste reminded me of water with a squirt of lemon, salt and a tablespoon of sugar. I couldn't understand the fixation other athletes had with it. Back then, that sports drink was our only option, because we were told…Continue

My kids have always LOVED commercials. Maybe it's because their dad works in advertising, or maybe it's because, unlike me, they never ever get tired of hearing the "Flipeez" theme song that seems to play on repeat between shows. Whatever the case, when an ad pops up on the screen, my twins are completely riveted. So when a totally inappropriate commercial was shown during a KID movie on…Continue

Born in the high desert country, in Alamogordo, New Mexico, Florence loved exploring the wilderness on foot and horseback. Those grandiose landscapes formed her sensibility. Hidden pockets of unexpected greenery tucked away near springs in folds of barren mountainsides spoke to her of gentleness and beauty in an otherwise harsh world. She published her first poem in a children’s…Continue

Good Morning Dolls! I am in an excellent mood this morning, want to know why? Well, its because last night I did the unthinkable and went to bed at exactly 9:53p. Not only did I go to bed early, but I had an uninterrupted sleep; I turned my phone off, turned off my tablet and simply slept. It was absolutely perfect! I am now a firm believer that rest makes for a happier mom indeed! …Continue

We all know that kids really don't have any kind of a filter when it comes to speaking their minds. The thoughts just tumble out of their mouths like the trash rolls out of my purse when it falls over. They don't mean to hurt your feelings -- they just call it like they see it. For example, when they say I have a…Continue

Society plays a huge role on how people perceive themselves, especially in terms of physical appearance. Men are judged heavily if they are not tall and muscular enough. Women are perceived ugly if they don’t have a buxom or ultra-thin model body. It is a sad reality because the media plays a huge role on how society perceives the ideal body image.

Understanding how your body will use the calories you consume can help you in setting up your nutritional program. Simply counting calories will not lead to body fat loss.
Not all foods are burned completely to produce energy. Some of them are only partially degraded to provide building blocks to support repair and growth.
Generally speaking, the calories coming from protein are used to maintenance, repair and growth of new tissue and organs.
