Holiday Gift Guide: WondaWedge and BookWedge

Now I have to admit, when I first received my WondaWedge and BookWedge my first thought was "Meh." Am I really going to use it? Do I really need it around the home? Is this going to be another novelty item hanging around the house? I was pleasantly surprised at how much I did enjoy it!

Sam's Club Black Friday Event: Starbucks Holiday Blend and Artisan Fresh Cinnamon Rolls #DeliciousPairings #Cbias


Every year I lace up my walking shoes, bundle up in my warmest coat and face the hustle and bustle of Black Friday shopping.  Truth is, I love it!  I love scanning the deals before hand, planning out my route and getting those awesome prices.  I also love the crowds and that rush I get when I totally score that sought after marked down item!  However, there is one thing about Black Friday I am not a fan of; it's having to wake up super early in the morning to beat everyone to those deals.  So early in the morning, that breakfast is usually skipped and only one cup of coffee is drank.

Nutrisystem Week 11: Tips For Surviving The Holidays

It seems like yesterday when I received my first Nutrisystem food package in the mail, I can not believe I have now been on the program for 11 whole weeks!  When I began my journey as a Nutrisystem blogger, my first thought was "Oh no, I will be on Nutrisystem through the holidays.  That's the most difficult time for me!"  Seriously, every holiday season usually ends up with at least an extra 10 pounds right to the derriere!

The holiday weight gain usually begins during Halloween and lasts until a few weeks after Christmas, I just can not pass up "marked down" Christmas chocolate!  Well, this year I got through Halloween pretty unscathed and actually LOST a pound, miraculous!  However, this week was going to be the real test; it was Thanksgiving week, a day of eating, eating and MORE eating.  How will I survive this holiday?!

Little Monsters Gear Review and Giveaway

My kids are Monsters fans!  They love the movie Monsters Inc. and are always pretending to be a monster of some sort.  That is why when I saw the company Little Monsters Gear, I had to check them out!

The company was started in honor of the owners father; he had 15 children and nicknames for each.  She started creating Monster designs based off of each of her siblings nicknames and the company grew from there.  They now have 12 monsters, each with their own story and own characteristics!

Just look at the cuteness of their designs....

Aren't they simply adorable?  Also, each Monster tee comes with their own story AND stickers!  That sold my kids right there, STICKERS!  This company sure has an understanding for kids!

They also have an array of sizes!  I saw they carried onesies and smaller tees.  My son is 7 and I was a little worried they would not carry his size.  Well, rest assured they certainly did!  And he LOVES his shirt, it is amazing how fitting the shirt isHe certainly is my DareDevil!

Besides the tees and onsies, they carry bibs, burb clothes and leg warmers!  Oh. My. Goodness!  Why did I not know about this company when my little girl was a baby.  I love seeing little babes with those cute leg warmers looking all like Flash Dance!

And guess what?!  Today we are giving away a Little Monster Gear product!

Simply, enter using the rafflecopter form below. You only have to do the first entry to win but the more you do, the better your chances of winning. It may take a few moments to load.

PersonaLabs Online Blood Testing: Targeted Risk Assessment

Last year I began having health problems, I started coming down with sickness after sickness, having dizzy spells and overall just felt lethargic.  After a visit with my primary doctor, it was suspected I had anemia (low iron counts) and was referred to a Hematologist.  Hoping to find an answer to this issue I immediately called to make an appointment, but when I did, the earliest I could get was 2 months away...  really?!  I would have to wonder what was wrong with me for an entire 2 months?!  Typical me, I started worrying that it could be something way worse; my mind started racing and I started scouring the internet with my symptoms.  Bad idea but I just wanted to know what was wrong with me!

Well, in the midst of my hypochondriatic episode I finally made it into the doctors and it turned out that I did indeed have anemia, which was a relief, but in this day in age should I have been made 2 months to find this out?  I'm convinced that something is definitely wrong with our healthcare system.  Not only is the rising cost in healthcare a problem but so is the red tape (2 months... really?!).  How can we as patients take control of our health?  This is why I am now a believer in PersonaLabs online blood testing!


"PersonaLabs was founded to give individuals the ability to take charge of their own healthcare through affordable, accessible, confidential laboratory tests and risk assessments."

Nutrisystem Week 10: Eating Until Satisfaction

 "Change is the end results of all true learning"

For many of you that are not familiar with my weight loss journey, let me fill you in a bit.  I began my journey over 10 years ago and 175 pounds heavier.  My journey began with an unsuccessful surgery, many diets, many ups and downs in weight and many weight loss programs.  My weight has been and probably will always be a constant struggle of self control, fighting bad eating patterns and making healthier choices.

Guest Post: The Life of a Minimalist and Minimalist Coaching Session Giveaway

 
Last September I attended FitBloggin' conference in Baltimore.  At the conference, I was lucky enough to meet and room with a very special lady.   She is a minimalist coach and blogs about living a minimal lifestyle and helping moms lose weight.  Her take on the "simplier" life, her devotion to her son and her overall attitude inspired me and I hope you enjoy her guest post as much as I enjoyed reading it!

Nutrisystem Week 9: I Will NOT Be That Statistic


It has now been 9 weeks since I began my journey on the Nutrisystem program and it is really starting to show!  My clothes are getting too big, I can feel my body changing AND I have began receiving the question "Have you lost weight?"  "Why yes, yes I have!"  This question is usually followed up with "How are you doing it?"  They always ask how.  How many of us want to know the secret to success, how many of us are struggling to lose those few (or many) pounds and just want to know HOW?  So, I begin to tell them all about the Nutrisystem program, how delicious the food is, how easy the program is and how it really does work when followed.  They seem interested and nod but as I leave the conversation, I often wonder how many of them will actually make the decision to take control of their health and BEGIN a weight loss program.

Family Movie Night With The Amazing Spider-Man and Webslinger Augmented Reality App #SpiderManWMT #CBias

On November 9th, The Amazing Spiderman is being released on Blu-ray/DVD.  As you can tell, my kids are Spider-Man fans!  My son has had a Spider-Man birthday party for two years in a row, he has dressed up as Spider-Man for Halloween two times and regularly pretends to be Spider-Man fighting crime in his room!  So, as you might expect, The Amazing Spider-Man being released on DVD is a huge event for him!  In honor of the big event, we spent last Friday night hosting a family movie night where we watched an advance copy of The Amazing Spider-Man and played with the Webslinger Augmented Reality App.
