Why I was the envy of every other pregnant woman

I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

Pregnancy can be hard on woman for a lot of reasons.  When I was pregnant with my first little one I was the envy of all the other pregnant woman around.  Why you ask, well let me tell you all.  I had no morning sickness, I gained the lower recommended weight and it was all around a perfect 9 months.  You had never seen a happier pregnant woman.  It was the most perfect time in my life.  Now you want to know why you should not curse me under your breath, I’ll tell you.

Sea-Band

My next pregnancy the pregnancy gods got even. I was sick for the whole nine months, there was no first three month for me.  The weight gain was about the same, but this time I think it’s because I spent most of my time nauseas. I was sore, sick and pretty much miserable the whole time.  Don’t get me wrong the end result was worth every minute of it, but boy was I miserable.

Sea-Band

Back then they had a few candy’s you could suck on to help, but for me it did not help too much.  I was so sick just opening one would make my stomach turn.  After I got it in my mouth it was a little better but still not good.  Now they have Sea-Band.  This is going to revolutionize the pregnancy world.  Not only do they have stuff you can suck on, chew or spray they also have one you can just wear.  This is a game changer.  For those wonder well how do I know it works.  No, I am not pregnant now but I did get a chance to try it.

Sea-Band

Last month I had surgery and was on pain killers.  I am one of those people that pain killers help the pain, but I am sick as can be.  So, I slipped on my Sea-Band and yes it did help.  It actually helped enough that I could eat and go about my regular day.  My head was not stuck in the toilet.  I am convinced.  If you know a mommy to be make sure to pick up a few of these.  She will be thanking you for the rest of her pregnancy. If you get travel sickness, sick from pills or any other reason make sure to keep these in your medicine cabinet.

What to Do Now to Get Green Grass In the Spring

For many homeowners, fall is a time of relief. It’s a time to take a break from mowing and fertilizing and managing weeds, and let the lawn fend for itself for a few months. Before that can happen, though, there are a few important tasks that need to be completed. Skip them, and you’ll likely be very disappointed in your yard come springtime – and have even more work to do then.

Green lawn

Raking

When we are kids, raking the leaves doesn’t necessarily equate work. After all, is there anything more fun than jumping in a fresh pile of fallen leaves? As an adult? Not so much. But raking the leaves up from the grass in the fall is one of the most important things you need to do to ensure healthy green grass in the spring. Leaves left on the grass will block light and oxygen from the grass underneath, leaving you with dead patches of turf in a few months. As the leaves fall, rake or blow them, or use your lawn mower’s mulching setting to keep them from killing the grass.

 

Seeding

It might feel odd to spread grass seed in the fall, but if you have a thick, healthy lawn in the fall, you have a better chance of a healthy lawn in the spring. Overseeding the lawn – spreading seed across the entire turf – helps to fill in thin or bare patches and helps introduce hardier types of grass into your lawn. However, you can’t simply head outside sometime in November, spread some grass seed and hope for the best. To ensure the best results, you need to plant your seeds when the days are still relatively warm and sunny, the nights cool, and you can still maintain adequate moisture. This usually means spreading seed in the early fall, before the first frost. In fact, the sooner you overseed the better, as when the frost hits, new, tender grass seedlings will not survive.

Green lawn

Fertilize

Much like most animal life needs to build up their nutrition before a long winter, so does your lawn. Giving your grass a boost of nitrogen-rich fertilizer in the fall (usually in late October/early November) can help nourish the roots and develop enough chlorophyll to ensure that the grass comes back green and healthy in the spring. Choose a fertilizer that is rich in nitrogen and potassium; potassium can help with disease prevention and cold resistance, as well as support root growth. If you aren’t sure which fertilizer formula to purchase, conduct a soil test that will tell you which nutrients are lacking and what you need to add for a healthy lawn.

 

Aerate

Over time, the soil in your lawn can become compacted and thick with roots and stems. This can prevent water and nutrients from reaching the roots of the grass, leading to dead patches and weak grass. Aerating the lawn – using a tool to poke holes in the soil and break up the thatch, can help introduce more oxygen and water and ensure a healthier lawn. You only need to aerate every few years, but if it has been a while since you’ve done it, now is the time. Do it before you fertilize to ensure that the fertilizer can reach the grass roots where it’s needed the most.

 

Mow and Water

Finally, keep up with mowing and watering well into mid-fall. Reset the blades on your mower to keep the grass a bit longer. In general, you should plan to mow your grass 1-1.5 inches higher than usual in the fall, as grass that is too short will not be as healthy come spring. You will notice that the grass grows more slowly in the fall; once it appears to stop growing entirely, you can put the lawn mower away for the winter.

 

Taking care of your lawn in the fall can make your life a lot easier in the spring. You won’t have to correct as much damage, and you won’t find the dreaded dead patches left by piles of soggy leaves. With the right care, plus some seed and fertilizer, you’ll have a green, healthy lawn that is envious throughout your neighborhood..

#beautylovers September Adore Box Review

Adore Box

Yaaaaa it’s a new month and my favorite subscription box has showed up.  Like normal Adore Box has knocked it out of the park.  I love that in this box I get full size and trial size products.  It gives me a chance to try new things without spending big bucks on the full size.

Adore Box

In this box I got to try the Mac Strobe cream.  It went on smooth and I love this one for days I don’t want to put on makeup.  I helped even out my dry dull skin.  The Korean Essence face mask was awesome when I got to relax at night.  The Mabelline Master Prime.  Went on smooth and help keep my eye shadow looking fresh all day.  The Milani Moisture Lock Lip Oil was one of my favorite.  I am keeping this in my purse.  It glides right on and keep my lips looking and feeling glossy for a long time.  The Sorme Smearproof Eyeliner went on perfect and stayed.  I even forgot to take this off overnight, and did not get the black eyes the next morning. As you can tell I got a ton of fun stuff in this package.

Adore Box

If you are looking for a great subscription beauty box than look no farther.  They not only have a great price, but every month I get great new products that I love.  Adore Box is a beauty lovers dream come true.

My little Pony FLUTTERSHY Review and Giveaway

My little Pony

I remember growing up My little pony was one of my favorites.  I had all my, My Little Pony’s lined up when it was time to watch them.  Back then they did not have the copy’s you could watch at home.  Of course, there was also no DVR’s either.  So, we had to be ready when it came on.  Now kids can watch their favorite movies or shows at any time.  I love that my son can watch when he wants too, and My little pony is a great cartoon for him with great life lessons.  I can feel good about my son watching such a great show.

If you are anything like me in the morning I am busy.  So, if I want something to eat it has to be a grab and go.  I would prefer that it’s not filled with sugar so the Proteins bars are perfect.  I keep them in a little basket by the door and I can just grab one when I am running out in the morning.  Once it is winter I can just keep them in the car with our cold weather I know they won’t melt.  I love that I have a great alternative in the morning.

The 8 Worst Things to Do After a Workout

You must exercise regularly to lose weight, feel happy, reduce stress, and prevent chronic diseases. Based on your lifestyle, you can hit the gym regularly, exercise at home, or indulge in simple physical activities like walking. The latest fitness trackers further make it easier for you to improve exercise performance by providing vital information like calories burned, heart rate, and sleeping habits. But it is also important to avoid certain things after a workout session to stay healthy and fit in the long run.

8 Things You Must Not Do After a Workout

1) Not Cooling Down

You can easily accelerate weight loss by performing a variety of workouts. For instance, you can consider walk for about five minutes after completing a five-mile work. But you must perform different types of workout continuously. It is always a great idea to take a short break and cool down. The cooling down period will normalize your blood pressure and heart rate. Also, the short break will help you to prevent blood built up in the veins.

2) Forgetting to Stretch

When you exercise rigorously, your muscles need to recover and rebuild. You must stretch for a few minutes after the workout to recover and rebuild the muscles quickly. The stretch will further accelerate the health benefits of workout and prevent muscles from contracting.

3) Touching Your Face Directly

Many people touch their faces or rub their eyes directly after a gym workout. You must remember that the same fitness equipment are being accessed different members of the gym. Hence, the gym equipment may transmit many unwanted germs and bacteria to your hands. Instead of touching your face directly, you can consider wiping the area with a towel. Otherwise, you must wash your hands after the workout and before touching your face.

4) Not Changing Sweaty Gym Clothes

There are always chances that you may find your gym clothes both stylish and comfortable. But you must remember that gym clothes become sweaty after a workout and may lead to body acne or yeast infections. You must make it a practice to remove the sweaty gym clothes immediately after the workout session and take a shower.

5) Not Sleeping Properly

When you workout rigorously, it becomes essential to heal and rebuild your muscles. You can rebuild your muscles in a number of ways. But the easiest and most natural way to rebuild and heal muscles is to sleep adequately. A good night’s sleep will help you to rebuild your muscles and get ready for the next workout session.

6) Not Tracking Your Workout

The latest fitness trackers help you to monitor and measure your workout without putting extra time and effort. You even have option to choose from a variety of fitness trackers according to your fitness goal and choice of physical activities. You can use the fitness tracker to calculate the calories burnt, measure your heart rate, and evaluate the exercise routine.

7) Eating Unhealthy Foods

You can easily burn additional calories by exercising rigorously and regularly. But it is also intake protein, fiber, and vitamins after the workout session to regain the lost energy. You must make it a practice to eat low carb and high protein snacks after the workout. You also need to avoid processed and unhealthy foods to rebuild your body without consuming additional calories.

8) Not Remaining Hydrates

Each time you exercise rigorously, your body keeps dehydrating. You must keep your body hydrated after the workout session to feel energized and refreshed. It is always a good idea to keep the water bottle handy and drink about three cups of water after the working out.

On the whole, you must exercise regularly to reap a number of physical and mental health benefits. But it is always important to work out in the most appropriate way, and avoid a number of things before and after a workout.
