Post-pregnancy weight loss goal

The miracle of birth is quite possibly the single most beautiful and magical thing the universe has to offer. It’s also a body wrecking suffrage. There’s no denying that parenthood is a beautiful thing and you love your children more than anything, but there’s also no denying that pregnancy will do horrible (beautiful) things to your body. It can be difficult to pick up where you left off after having a child, but all is not lost, it’s not as hard as you might think to get your body back to its former glory.

Here’s how.

It all comes down to developing and sticking to a workout routine. What kind of routine you need varies from person to person, as we all have different ideas of what we want from our bodies, but there are some universal truths to consider, of course. There endless articles, videos, and more that can point you in the right direction. Once you find a routine that works for you, you have to stick with it.

It can be difficult to stick to your routine. After all, working out is the hardest thing most of us do from day to day. It’s worth trying to reward yourself for adhering to your regimen. In the case of dieting, there’s the time honored “cheat day” where in you can eat whatever you want without worrying about your dietary restrictions. For working out, however, a suitable reward is less obvious, but you just have to get creative and really reinforce your newly developed habit.
Remember to set smaller goals on the path to your primary goal. For example, when it comes to weight loss, you can set the goal of losing 10 pounds by the end of the month. When it comes to working out, your goal can simply be doing more each day than you did the day before. Remember, of course, to dress for your workout. Wearing the right clothes makes all the difference in the world, and Athleta can provide great clothing for all your athletic needs, and then some.

Musical instruments over gadgets

When you heard the word Yamaha, only one thing came into mind, a high quality musical instrument from this trusted company being the largest producer of musical instruments in the world. Why I know this? My B-I-L still plays with their more or less 20-year old Yamaha keyboard. He uses this to practice new songs he will play for incoming events like birthdays, weddings and other special occasions. The loved for music is very apparent and being passed on to new generations as grandkids are taught to play with this instrument at a very young age. Just imagine how much service this old Yamaha organ/piano had done and still doing to the family. 🙂

Besides it’s better to teach children to play musical instruments at a very young age to enhance their creativity instead of just letting them play with gadgets and become dependent on technology. If thinking of purchasing one it’s readily available at different music shops in your area or even online. You can purchase yamaha piano at

Celebrating Our 3rd Year in A Row National Breakfast Holiday

So this is actually the 3rd year that we’re able to make it to McDonald’s National Breakfast Day and needless to say it has always been an enjoyable experience since it’s too early for me to work and the kids all go to school in the afternoon.

But this year, what made the experience even more unforgettable was the fact that we almost didn’t make it in time due to the distance we had to travel. Standing outside the long line it took us way too long to get in with the many patrons already inside. And of course I’d hate to disappoint my kids by coming in late specially when the buzzer sounded ending the event held annually every second Monday of March! When we finally got in, the cashiers at the counter were already signaling the end of the event as it only ran for an hour this time. As opposed to the 1,000 muffin they gave away in the previous years.

So since the game has changed, then next year, we will definitely be waking up earlier to make more time to get that luscious breakfast McMuffin that only McDonald’s offers. I’m sure you’ll know where to go as if you’re shopping for concert ukulele at
