Your Body Is A Gift

Image
It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

Join Me This Summer And #TeaItUp

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Swiss Premium. The opinions and text are all mine. 

I admit, I was counting down the days until summer. I love our fun summer activities. Usually Lil Man and I spend some time hiking the trails. A new trail system opened near our house, and we got in one two-mile hike before I broke my foot. Less than a week after our first hike together, on the very same trail, I broke my foot while running. So, this unexpected turn of events has changed our summer, but we aren't letting it stop us!

It is summer after-all, and summer fun is a must! Lil Man is my engineer, and he will spend hours on a project. With a shovel, a water hose, an old nozzle and some zip ties, he made his very own sprinkler system. I love his creativity! Along with fun, summer also brings heat. In addition to our water activities, we like to cool off with fun cool treats.

For the first time ever, we decided to make some popsicles. Honestly, I don't know why we haven't done this before. It was super easy! I guess I just never thought of it before. I did the heavy lifting with the gallon jug of Swiss Premium Lemonade.




Lil Man did the honors of putting on the tops. The hardest part was waiting overnight for it to freeze.



I think next time that we do this, I'd like to add some fresh fruit like strawberries or blueberries. I think they'd compliment the Swiss Premium Lemonade.




Don't think I'm letting the boot stop me! We've been to the pool, the playground, and as always, our backyard is a fun adventure. And Swiss Premium Lemonade is my special treat after chasing Lil Man around the yard, retrieving stray basketballs, or helping with the trampoline and swing-set.



Swim Premium contains all natural ingredients. It doesn't have preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. It does contain sugar. However, I feel that moderation is the key when it comes to enjoying treats. And for my son, a small amount goes a long way.

A cold glass of lemonade or Swiss Premium Tea sure satisfies on a busy summer day.
