My Top 5 New Year's Resolutions for Getting Healthy & Fit in 2010

On top of most of our New Year’s resolution lists are increasing our fitness levels and living a healthier lifestyle. Ubisoft Entertainment and TwitterMoms have teamed up to bring us a fun sweepstakes with some great prizes and hopefully a little inspiration to get you fit and healthy in 2010.

The Question is: "What are your top 5 New Year's resolutions for getting healthy and fit in 2010?”
Here's my answers:

1. Drink plenty of water. We all know its important to drink water. But- I usually don't. I love Diet Coke. And while I'm not going to give that up completely, I am going to try to drink more water.

2.Eat Breakfast. I need to eat breakfast every morning. I know that this is the most important meal and I usually skip it.

3.Eat Healthier. Besides cutting back on all the sweets, I am going to try to eat more fruits and vegetables. I want to choose better foods for my whole family. Eating healthier options like whole grains and avoiding process foods.

4. Exercise. I need to get back into my routine. I need to do at least 30 minutes of exercise 4 to 5 days a week or more.

5.Get my Family involved. I need to set a good example for my kids.
We need to eat healthy and exercise as a family. The Wii has alot of fun active games the whole family can enjoy. We need to set a Family game night of bowling or boxing and/or other fun exercises on the wii. When the weather is nicer here, we need to go for walks and bike rides.

Okay those are my 5. What about yours? Please share your own tips and thoughts. And check out TwitterMoms and enter this contest or read the other moms answers.
I would love to win this Your Shape game to help me meet my goals.

Baby's First Phone Call Giveaway

baby's first phone call

Having a Baby is such a special time in our lives. We want to tell everyone about our new bundle of joy as soon as they arrive. But, after just getting that cute baby in our hands, we really don't want to be talking on the phone and calling everyone. Or forgetting to call some of our family,friends and co-workers.

Well...Here's the solution...
Alleviate some of the chaos of those first hours for the new parents by giving them an easy, reliable way to notify all their friends and family of the new arrival.

Baby's First Phone Call is an automated call tree that allows you to notify all of your friends and family of the arrival of your bundle of joy without the hassle of making dozens of individual phone calls, or leaving some friends and family to find out second- or third-hand.

With Baby's First Phone Call, you set up an account before your baby is born—when you still have a moment of time to yourself—and enter the names and phone numbers of all the people you want to notify when the baby arrives. Then, after the baby is born, you make a single phone call and leave a personal voice-mail message of any length with all the details you want to share.

Not only can you tell your friends and family when your little bundle arrived, you can share information such as the hospital and room number you're in and whether and when you'd like to receive visitors.

This system places calls to each of the phone numbers in your account. If the person answers the phone they hear your happy message. If they don't answer, the message is left on their voicemail or answering machine. In either case, there is an option for them to leave you a return message that you can pick up at your convenience.

Use Baby's First Phone Call to notify your group of any size, your friends, your co-workers and your extended family. Now you have the perfect way to send a personal message with your joyous news to everyone in your network!

With Baby's First Phone Call, you won't forget to notify anyone of your news and nobody will be the last to know!

I wish this service was around about eleven years ago when I had my first Baby. And I'm not planning on having another baby just to let you know how great this service works.(LOL)
A gift certificate for Baby's First Phone Call is a unique baby shower gift! Whether you're a friend or relative of the mom or dad giving the gift of Baby's First Phone Call is a great idea. You can purchase these in any amounts with services starting at just $20.

Better yet..Four of my lucky readers can win a $50 Gift Certificate to Baby's First Phone Call. (That's notifies unlimited family and friends)

GlassesUSA.com Review

Looking at me, You would not know I wear eyeglasses. (In most of my pictures,I have my contact lenses in.) I have been wearing glasses ever since I was in the Second Grade in school. I can giggle now, looking back at my school aged pictures and here I was with these big glasses. I know that I was "Cool" then and wow, how the fashion has changed.

After I was older, I remember getting contact lenses. Now, I wear contact lenses about 60% of the time. I wear contacts because I coach gymnastics and I don't want my perscription glasses to get broken if I was to get kicked in the face. When I'm home, I like to wear my glasses. My insurance covers a new pair of glasses every two years but it usually is the basic, cheapest frame. Prescription glasses can be so expensive, especially if you want to get "stylish" looking frames.

With GlassesUSA.com you can find very stylish eyeglass frames at a great price, all without leaving your house. This is so easy and convenient. By visiting their site, you can browse through their many selections. They have all their frames broken down in categories that make it easy to find eyeglass frames that you like. The categories include full frames, classic frames, retro frames ,flexible eyeglasses, etc. As well as searching by the price, material, gender and lense type. They also have the most popular eyeglasses, new arrivals and weekly deals. I did this and found the frames I wanted in no time. I picked out the Twister frames in Blue (with the lenses) they were $54.95. These glasses would have cost alot more buying them at a vision center. I love their prices. I think any of these frames are a good deal. At GlassesUSA.com you can find a full set of single vision glasses(frames and lenses) for as low as $18. You can also get free shipping if you spend over $99 and all their glasses are 100% satisfaction guaranteed!

glasses usa

My only thought was What if I didn't like the glasses I ordered? Or what if they didn't fit right ? I am the one who takes forever trying on glasses. I can honestly say, I would be at the vision center All Day trying on glasses. I am very picky and want to make sure that I get the perfect pair that fits and looks just right. I wasn't sure when I picked out my glasses that I would like how they looked and fit.
No Worries...They have a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
I was so surprised ,when I got my glasses in the mail, that they fit so good and looked great on. They are perfect for me. They are very light and comfortable. I love them.

There are a few things I want to share with you about GlassesUSA. They’re not just out to make money – They actually care about society! All of their returned eyeglasses are not restocked as they are with most optical stores. Theirs are “recycled”! What does that mean? Well, they believe that everyone should have access to vision care. So, they donate all of their returned eyeglasses to various organizations around the US who then sanitize and redistribute the eyeglasses with the correct prescription to people all over the world who can’t afford vision care!
Seeing properly shouldn’t be a luxury – it should be a necessity. They do their best to help their customers and they take their vision needs very seriously. They are an international company with two offices: one in New Jersey (their headquarters) and one in Israel. Their eyeglasses are produced at both facilities in order to provide their customers with top quality lenses in the hottest frames available!

*I was lucky enough to get a complimentary pair of glasses to review, but GlassesUSA.com would also like to offer my readers a discount. If you want to order through GlassesUSA.com apply the following code for a 5% off your total order.
The code is: Mommy5 and This code never expires.*

Country Bob's Sauce Review & Giveaway

Giveaway now Closed. Congrats to Nancy and Carol.Photobucket
It was 1968 when Country Bob Edson perfected his steak sauce recipe and he called it an All Purpose Sauce because it was more than just a steak sauce. Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce has remained the flagship item since 1982 when Country Bob, Inc. was established.

Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is in a class by itself. It is more than a steak sauce, because of its unique flavor and the variety of uses. You can grill, cook, and marinate with it, or put it in your soups, stews, baked beans, and your other favorite dishes. Experience the Taste of our Gluten Free All Purpose Sauce!

You can Use Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce on:
Steak, Chicken, Barbeque, Fries, Hamburger, Fish and so much more!

My Thoughts:
WOW!!! I loved it!!! Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce is GREAT! I think BBQ Sauce is ok but prefer to put ketchup on most foods. I don't use Steak Sauce, I don't care for its taste much. So... I wondered if I would like this sauce. I stuck my finger in the bottle and liked the taste. It reminds me of BBQ sauce with a tangy kick. I first tried it on french fries, I would normally smoother in ketchup, but not any more. I Loved it! Fries are awesome with Country Bob's sauce (Move over ketchup). Then I cooked a pork roast in the crock-pot and forgot about it -So my pork was perfect for pulled pork sandwiches. I put this sauce on my pork instead of regular BBQ sauce and it was Very Good. My hubby decided to try it and He loved it too. We are Hooked. I have to say it's good on fish too. I think that my ketchup is getting jealous. (LOL) I can't wait to try it on chicken and hamburgers.

You can purchase it on Country Bob's Site

Listen Up! Campaign To Prevent Hearing Loss in Children

As Global Influencers,working with ASHA to spread the word about hearing loss in children and teens, We want to help educate parents about the ways to prevent potential problems and how to recognize the warning signs of hearing losslisten up! CampaignDid you know that when MP3 players are purchased as gifts, the majority of purchasers are moms? That finding emerged at the Mommy Tech summit at the recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show.

But do you know about the potential risks? Kids often don't know how to use audio technology safely and they can harm their hearing as a result. In fact, hearing loss among young people is reported to be on the rise and there are strong concerns that a generation of young people could end up with prevalent hearing loss.

"For some time, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has warned that hearing loss in the United States could rise significantly due to the misuse of personal audio technology," ASHA President Tommie L. Robinson, Jr. explains. "Unfortunately, a report released today by the Kaiser Family Foundation cites some alarming trends about excessive entertainment media consumption among our nation's children, indirectly supporting ASHA's concerns. This should be a warning to parents that they must regulate children's exposure and fully understand the potential health threats associated with misuse and over exposure to such technologies."

"ASHA will continue to bring these issues to the forefront and appreciates the Kaiser Family Foundation's contributions to the national dialogue," Robinson adds.

According to a 2004 study by the Kaiser Family Foundation, children were reported as being exposed to 6 hours and 21 minutes of media (TV, music, internet, etc) per day. By 2009, this statistic had increased dramatically to 7 hours and 38 minutes per day. When media multitasking is taken into account, this leaps to 10 hours and 45 minutes per day. This massive consumption of media has led to decreased grades in school and ASHA contends it puts kids at an increased risk of hearing loss.

One thing that is clear from the study is that parents can be very positive influencers on how their children use entertainment media.

How You Can Help - Spread the Following Message
Whether your child received an MP3 player, gaming device, cell phone, laptop, or any other device with headphones, don't overlook the important health threat of hearing loss. Now is the time to reach out to other parents about the importance of hearing loss prevention, the damaging effects of excessive media consumption, and the resources available to them through ASHA.

Here are two simple ways to protect your children's - and your own - hearing.

· Keep the volume down. A good guide is half volume.

· Limit listening time. Give your hearing 'quiet breaks'.

You Can Find more information and statistics at ASHA's website.

Denise's Daily Dozen Book Review & Giveaway

Giveaway Now Closed. Congrats to Jason, Mary, Pam, Sheila amd Heather.denise's Daily Dozen book
Book Description:
From Denise Austin comes the perfect health book for anyone who wants to live better but just can't seem to find the time. Much more than just another excercise book, Denise's Daily Dozen covers a whole range of health and diet related concepts yet manages it all in a no-stress, time-conscious program of 12's. At it's core, this book contains the minimum daily requirements to keep the reader flexible, strong and trim. Organized simply into seven chapters, which equal the seven days of the week, it covers a full week in daily allotments. Each day will have it's own focus from Monday being "fat burning day" to Sunday's "recharge and rejuvenate."

Denise has created a total body program, including a 7-day balanced meal plan that includes healthy recipes, and a workout that encompasses 12 exercises done in 12 minutes each day. Everyone can take just 12 minutes, at whatever time of the day works for them, and turn it over to these simple and fun exercises. Cardio, toning, yoga and breathing exercises...they're all here but in a way the maximizes effect while minimizing time.

Beyond a dozen exercises for each day of the week this book will include many other of Denises dozens for each day.

About the Author:
A native of San Pedro, California, Denise started gymnastics at the age of 12 and earned an athletic scholarship to the University of Arizona, graduating in 1979 with an exercise physiology degree. She began her career teaching aerobic exercise classes in the Los Angeles area and went on to cohost the The Jack LaLanne Show, in 1981. (Denise considers Jack LaLanne one of her role models, and she is delighted to still speak regularly with the 94-year-old fitness legend.)

During more than 25 years promoting health and fitness, Denise has created 82 workout videos or DVDs. Her enormous number of sales led to her 2003 induction into the Video Hall of Fame.

Denise has been married for 25 years to Jeff Austin, a sports attorney and brother of tennis champ Tracy Austin. They share a home with their two teenage daughters, Kelly and Katie.

My Thoughts:
I really like this book. This is an easy to read and follow book. I love how this book gives you a three week meal plan to follow and a very quick daily workout. The pictures show you exactly how to do each exercise and the directions are very descriptive and easy to follow. I love the Variety and each day of the week You have a different Twelve minute work out to do. This really spices things up and keeps it fun. There is also great Tips and advice in this book. One of the best aspect is that you don't need any fancy, heavy equipment and you can do these exercises in your own home in a short amount of time. This a program designed to help you make healthy lifestyle changes and is not a short-lived diet plan. I really feel that I can benefit from this book and I started doing the daily exercises. I hope to have good results by losing a few pounds and by making exercise a daily habit.

Dinosaurs For Kids~ Book Review~

dinosaurs book
Dinosaurs For Kids
By: Ken Ham


Book Description
Peek inside a dinosaur egg, discover what dinosaurs really ate, and learn how dinosaur tracks are made - all in this awesomely-illustrated book!
Dinosaurs for Kids shares the unique world of dinosaurs and their true history like never before as you:
~meet the most unusual creatures to ever walk the earth, stalk the seas, or soar across the sky!
~discover how dinosaur bonebeds are made, and other kinds of fossils beyond just bones!
~learn the truth behind museum exhibits and flawed evolutionary timelines!

Within these pages kids will uncover the facts about dinosaur history from the Creation to recent discoveries. Let Ken Ham take you on a journey through time to explore these awesome wonders of God's design. From where dinosaurs lived to what scientists assume they know about these great creatures, dinosaurs have never been this exciting, revealing, and simply amazing!

About the Author
Ken Ham is founder and president of the Answers in Genesis US ministry, and one of the most in-demand speakers in the world today. He has been a featured speaker at hundreds of events throughout the years. Including seminars in local churches, conferences for pastors, and Christian education venues. Noting the foundational importance of biblical and scriptural authority, Ken shares powerful and relevant insight on the book of Genesis.

My Thoughts:
This is a great book. The illustrations are great,so colorful and very detailed. This book is full of interesting information. There are quick facts on nearly all the pages, as well as detailed descriptions of things like the dinosaur names and how to pronounce them, why evolution doesn't work and the Biblical truth behind creation. I learned alot about dinosaurs reading this book. This book is geared more for older children and would make a good book to discuss at a bible study group. My children both enjoyed reading this book and learned alot about dinosaurs and the biblical truth.

This book may be purchased at Amazon.com

Chicken Soup for the Soul ~All in the Family

101 Incredible Stories about Our Funny, Quirky, Lovable & "Dysfunctional" Families

Almost everyone thinks their own family is “dysfunctional” or at least has a dysfunctional member or two. These stories of wacky yet lovable relatives, holiday meltdowns, and funny foibles, along with more serious stories about abuse, controlling family members, and flare-ups, show readers that they aren’t alone. All in the Family is a quirky and fun holiday book, and a great bridal shower or wedding gift! Norman Rockwell’s famous “Freedom from Want” Thanksgiving family painting appears on the back cover and is lovingly parodied on the front, driving home the point that all our families, no matter how much we love them, are just a little dysfunctional!

My thoughts:

I love the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. What I love the most is that they are all great and composed of many short stories. You can read a few pages, a story at a time or the whole book at once,depending on how much time you have. In Chicken Soup for the Soul~ All in the Family you can find many great stories. Some are very funny and some are serious and emotional. I love that the stories are divided into categories so you can choose which type you would like to read. In this book, You will find some topics like Forgiveness, Memories, putting the fun in dysfuntional, and family secrets. This is a great book and some of these stories may remind you of your family members and will make you appreciate and love your family. You will see that we all have a couple of "dysfunctional" family members and your family is quite normal.


You can purchase this through amazon.

General Mills Cereal and Commitment

Photobucket
Cheerios has been A family favorite for decades - and with good reason. Made with whole grain, Cheerios is the only ready-to-eat cereal clinically proven to lower cholesterol when eaten as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

The wholesome goodness of Cheerios is ideal as a nutritious breakfast or snack for kids,teens and adults. This is my Eight Year old son's favorite Cereal. He loves to eat Cheerios for breakfast with milk and he also likes to eat these plain as a healthy snack. These are a favorite with the little ones too.

General Mills has announced a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children´s diets.

Other cereal benefits:
•Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children´s diets.
•Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child´s diet today.
•More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.

Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.

For more information about kids and cereals, please visit Cereal Health and Wellness.

Right now if you visit here you will find a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals. So take advantage of the coupon and go grab yourself a box of cereal!

Indoors or outdoors, work or play, or on occasions when you sit on your butt all day, don’t let your buns get red, use Anti Monkey Butt Powder instead!

Anti Monkey Butt Powder is perfect for the active man, like my husband who takes part in physical activities and hobbies.

Excessive sweat can cause irritation of the buttocks and inner thighs, also known as "monkey butt". Unlike other powders, Anti Monkey Butt Powder has calamine and talc which gives it a cooling sensation instead of the burning that you might get from other products.

My thoughts:
This product has such a cute logo. I love the Monkey and his red butt. I haven't tried this but my husband has and he loves this product. This is great for him to use this time of year, while he's in the truck snowplowing for many hours. I think he will continue using this in the summer too. This will help absorb the sweat while he's working out in the hot sun and playing baseball. Using this powder in the morning after showering has helped to keep him more comfortable and sweating less.

The Berenstain Bears-God Loves You ~Book Review~

berenstain bears book

About the Author:
Created by Stan & Jan Berenstain with Mike Berstain
Stan and Jan Berestain introduced the first Berenstain Bears book in 1962.
Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents, Stan and Jan, working together to write and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Mike is married to Andrea and they have three children. They live in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks a lot like Bear Country.

Book Description:
The Berenstain Bear series helps children learn how God wants them to live every day. When the Bear family practices going to church, praying, and being kind, plus remembering how much God loves them, their lives are much more joyful.

In God Loves You! Brother and Sister Bear discover that God loves them, not because they’re successful, but because he made them. This book helps children appreciate the many ways God shows his love to them.

My Thoughts:
This is a beautiful book. I have always loved reading the Berenstain Bears books and watching them on tv. They are a typical family. The bear children act alot like my children and I can relate to many of their stories. This book is one in the Living Lights series that helps children learn how God wants them to live every day. I don't want to give it away but this is cute story, that lets you see that God Loves You not because you are a Star or Successful, but because he made You. This book is great for 4-7 years olds and helps them to see the many ways God show his love. This is a Great story that any parent would love to read to their children. The back cover even gives you activities and questions for further discussion.

You can visit The Berenstain Bears wesite for learning and fun activities and to purchase books.

captain Mac.A.roni

Produced by:Daystar Television Network
Animation Collective: Larry Schwarz

Synopsis:
Set sail on a hilarious adventure on the high seas that's fun for the whole family with "The Cheesy Adventures of Captain Mac.A.Roni". Join the young courageous trio of Princess Sandy, Mikey and Eddie, as they set out to rescue Liberty's Islands greatest treasure from the sinsiter clutches of Pirate Grime. With the help of the valiant and outrageous, Captain Mac.A.Roni and his pie-throwing sidekick chicken,Cheese,our trio sets sail on a dangerous and inspiring mission full of laughter and mayhem that ultimately leads to a meaningful conclusion, teaching children valuable, biblical lessons about forgiveness and love in the face of adversity.

My Thoughts:
It's nice to have a cartoon that's entertaining that teaches children meaningful lessons. I think that many young children would really enjoy watching this. This is full of adventure and humor with the jokes but teaches a great lesson. Parents should be able to watch this multiple times without getting annoyed like some cartoons and they will be happy to know it's appropriate for children.

This DVD was released in May of 2009 and is for sale at www.daystar.com or Amazon.com

Wen Cleansing Conditioner

wen cleansing conditioner
The WEN® Cleansing Conditioner by Chaz Dean
is a revolutionary new concept in cleansing your hair that has Hollywood buzzing! It’s special because it cleanses hair thoroughly but without lathering and all the harsh ingredients that may be found in ordinary shampoos — it is designed so it won’t strip your hair and scalp of their natural oils. Your hair is left with sheen, moisture, manageability and better color retention. The Wen® Cleansing Conditioner is designed to eliminate ordinary shampoo without sacrificing the integrity and beauty of your hair.

My Thoughts:
I have dry damaged hair, I believe from coloring and styling products,so when I was given the opportunity to try this Wen Cleansing Conditioner, I was hoping it would give me healthy and better looking hair. It did!!! I like the smell,it's minty and fresh. I read the directions and it says to use 16-24 pumps, but I have short hair so I only use about 5 pumps and that works pretty good for me. I have been using this for a few weeks and I can notice quite a difference in my hair. It doesn't seem to be as dry or damaged. This is really working well. I have way more body and shine after using this. I have tried other specialty shampoos and conditioners and have not had as good of results as I've had with using the Wen Cleansing Conditioner. I would recommend this to anyone who wants great hair. This is so easy to use being a single step process that cleanses and conditions all in one.

For more information about this product or to purchase this, please visit www.wenhaircare.com

**Disclosure: I received a full 12 oz bottle of the Wen Cleansing Conditioner free of charge to use for review purposes. This is my own opinion and results from using this product.**
