Clever Ways To Stay Healthy As A Family

Clever Ways To Stay Healthy As A Family

Sticking to a healthy lifestyle in modern society can feel like an impossible challenge. We’re all so busy that we don’t always give ourselves the necessary time to exercise or even eat well. Still, it doesn’t have to be this difficult. It’s a challenge to adopt a healthy lifestyle if you’re making a change on your own, but it’s always easier to do so if you have the support of other people. That’s why joggers in the park are often with running buddies. Sometimes, you need that extra push to stick to a healthy routine. And if you want your entire family to be healthier then you’ve got a much bigger support network in your own house. Your family members can help each other to become healthier. If you make some changes as a group then you could massively improve your lives.

175th Anniversary of the Oregon Trail: Exploring Mt. Hood

175th Anniversary of the Oregon Trail: Exploring Mt. Hood

This post is sponsored by Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Remember back in the day when the highlight of the elementary school day was playing the Oregon Trail game?

I didn’t really understand that piece of history at that age. It wasn’t until I reached 30 that I had more of an appreciation for history, especially local history like the Oregon Trail since I’ve lived near Portland, Oregon my entire life.

This last weekend we were invited to meet up with modern-day pioneers who shared a little bit of backstory with us about the pioneers who settled here in the Mt. Hood Oregon area for the Oregon Trail’s 175th anniversary.

Who is a Modern Pioneer? You probably know some. Or maybe you are one yourself. Modern Pioneers are everywhere along the Oregon Trail. They are business owners, makers, and leaders carrying on the entrepreneurial spirit of the original pioneers who set off on the Oregon Trail 175 years ago with the dream of a better life.

Our first stop along the Oregon Trail Saturday morning…

I wrote a similar post a few months ago about how my daughter is a picky eater. I know it’s normal for this stage in her life, but it can be frustrating, to say the least. She will go from liking her usual favorites of chicken nuggets, mac & cheese, French fries, clam chowder, sausage, hash browns and waffles to not wanting to eat any of them at all. Don’t even get me started on vegetables; I must sneak those into blended smoothies since she knows what vegetables are and what they look like by texture and colors. That doesn’t mean she’s tried any of them, she just assumes that all vegetables are gross.

Postpartum Incontinence: Oops, I Pee’d My Pants Again!

Postpartum Incontinence: Oops, I Pee’d My Pants Again!

No, I am not even joking.

As you know, if you read my other post and or see my Instagram photos, I just had my daughter 3 weeks ago. And when you have children, nothing ever goes back the same way it was before, and that includes your bladder control. I literally stood up in the hospital after giving birth, started to pee and didn’t even have the urge; it just all came pouring out at once and I felt so embarrassed since I didn’t think it was normal, but, it turns out that it really was normal. I later learned that having an epidural can make it drastically worse since you just feel numb in that area.

There’s Nothing a Vitamix Blender Can’t Handle

I received this product for free from Moms

The Vitamix E310 may be a budget model without all of the bells and whistles, but it can still blend up and create some pretty great things like; body butter, bread, salsa, nut butters, soups, smoothies and much more.
