It's Not Rocket Science

Last week, I did a post about the child obesity epidemic in the United States.  In that post, the first point I wanted to make is that food is fuel.  When you realize that very fact, it becomes easier to make better choices.   It’s all about how you view yourself.

If you could buy yourself a brand new car and money was not an option, what kind of car would it be?  Visualize that car.  Imagine yourself in the driver’s seat.  Take in that “new car” smell – actually don’t…

Is your heart heading for disaster?

Have you been told by the doctor that you have high cholesterol? Does it concern you? I have and yes it does concern me. The build-up of plaque in the arteries, called Atherosclerosis, can be very serious. With an unhealthy diet, cholesterol collects in the artery walls and can cause deadly heart attacks. I for one, would love to be around to see my grandkids, if my son ever has any that is (he is a little shy, but that’s a whole other blog…lol). In my research, I have learned that certain…

Children - The New Faces of Obesity

It’s no secret that obesity is a problem in the United States.  And in spite of the fact that a hunger problem exists as well, our population as a whole eats more and moves less than the citizens of other countries.  Sadly, it’s no longer just affecting adults, but children as well.  Even though medicine has made huge strides and people, on average, are living longer, it has been said that today’s generation of children and teenagers may not live as long as their parents will.  So,…

The Awesome Power of Music

In my family, we are serious, music-loving fools.  Now, granted, none of us can actually play an instrument (well, not yet anyway!), but we sure as heck appreciate people who can.  Yep, we dig it so much that it's generally playing in our house in some form or fashion 24/7.…

Nifty Niacin - It's Not Just a Word on Your Cereal Box!

If you would have asked me a few years ago what niacin was, I would have likely said it was one of those funny sounding vitamins that I used to read on the side of the cereal box in the morning.  And it is.  But it was only recently that I realized just how important this little gem of a vitamin really…

Watch Your Steps, Lady!

Wordless Wednesday as some blogs post up on this day... but as for me, it is a OUCH OUCH day...



Very early this morning I went for my breakie in a not-so-familiar food court.  It was quite crowded and most of the tables were occupied... Instead of looking for a table first, my eyes were up on the stalls' banners .... doing just that, I paid the price... cos....



All of a sudden, my right leg twisted and I came tumbling down on the floor...then only I realized that there…

Things I've Learned This Week

I apologize for being MIA on here lately, but unfortunately, my father had a bad stroke and was hospitalized.  It's been pretty horrific to say the least, but rest assured, I HAVE been keeping a mental list of wacky things I've learned.  And here they are:

** The…

SEE What These Foods Can Do For You!

When I was growing up, most people I knew must have had pretty good vision.  I say that because contact lenses weren’t the norm like they are today.  If a person couldn’t see well, that person wore glasses.  And most of the people I knew didn’t.

Sure, my grandparents wore glasses, as did the lady at the front desk of our library, and probably a couple of…

Red is Not Just for Valentine’s. What Every Woman MUST Know!!

Here in the Chicagoland area, people are wearing RED today as part of the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign.  Many people still do not realize that Heart Disease is the #1 killer of women over the age of 20, according to the AHA.  The upside to this?  It’s largely…

Orange You Glad They Like It?

I absolutely LOVE my local Whole Foods Store (if you can call an hour’s drive one way local).  When you walk in the door, you are met with a HUGE produce section that looks alive.  It’s almost like a giant piece of artwork.  So many different colors, different textures, and different smells are just waiting for me…

Can My Own Book Be My Favorite?

Okay,  so is it okay that my favorite is Little Patient Big Doctor?  I'm a bit partial since I wrote it.  Though to be honest it's taken me a while to make that statement.  I'm not one of those people who think that just because I did it -…

Green Moms and Germs

During my many years of parenting, I have discovered there are many things I would prefer not to touch.  Some of these things are pretty obvious – various bodily fluids, “icky” things like frogs (maybe that’s just me) and anything that could potentially bite me.

During flu season (I recently learned there is no such thing as cold season), there are some “not so obvious” things that I would prefer not to touch as well.  These are those every-day items that we routinely touch without…

What Have These Brave Kids Got to Lose?

I am a huge fan of The Biggest Loser TV show.  To me, it’s not just about a group of people losing a large amount of weight and competing for a prize.  It’s about so much more than that.

I am overjoyed that the group behind this show has finally decided to take on the matter of child obesity.  It’s a sensitive subject and, so far, they have handled it beautifully.

Our children watch our every move.  We are responsible for the food we bring into the home, how many times we allow…

Coping With Sandy Hook

 

Like every other parent in America, I sent my kids off to school yesterday morning with a giant lump in my throat.  The horrific events of Friday's mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School were at the forefront of my mind as I hugged each of my twins as tightly as I could.  A small part of me even wished they were sick so they could stay safe at home with me.  However,…

Turning 50: 8 Pieces of Advice I Would Give My 20 Year-Old Self

By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor

My husband surprised me with a 50th birthday party this summer. He invited all my friends throughout my many stages of life to come and share pictures of me when they knew-me-back-when. It was really fun to watch the slide show and reminisce about the good times with old friends.

There was one of me on my father’s sailboat that my…

Helping Shape Children’s Expectations

We parents often have high expectations from our children. It is a natural way of thinking because we take pride in giving much of our time and energy in molding their characters.

Just a few weeks ago my children had their 2nd grading final exams. Now in only a few…
