Healthy Living Link Party #22

The last week of July sure has been a busy one. We are getting ready for another adventure, 11 days away. It’ll be so much fun but it’s a lot of work getting everyone ready, making food preparations, & making sure nothing is important is left behind. I’m excited for a new adventure and what awaits us.
My pick for this week’s feature was such a fun way to incorporate more fruits and less cake into the mix.  I loved that this watermelon cake didn’t include any sugary topping and how creative she was in turning it into a fun truck.  Feel free to check it out along with our other featured posts.  And as always we hope as many of you participate as possible, making the party our best one yet.  Feel free to link up any post of yours, old or new, anything that pertains to healthy living, living a healthy lifestyle.
Welcome to the Healthy Living Link Party #22. We’d like to thank each and every one of you for making every week so amazing! Keep sharing your healthy posts with us and helping us grow our party.

The Pioneer In All Of Us

A Mother’s Shadow

I believe we still have the courage and stead­fast atti­tude to make a dif­fer­ence for GOOD in our soci­ety today. So many peo­ple do the hard things, make dif­fi­cult choices and  stand up for what they trust to be the cor­rect course in life, despite the con­se­quences.

My sparkling infinity scarf refashion made me fall in love with this old scarf all over again!

Healthy Living Link Party #21

GRILLED CORN AND POTATO SALAD – NAPA ROSE

THE DISNEY CHEF

Summer is a season all about fresh vegetables, cool salads, picnics, and grilling.  This recipe combines the absolute best of all of these summer perks!  Grilled vegetables and a sour cream dressing along with crisp fresh herbs blend together for a potato salad worth having a picnic for!

Frozen Butterbeer Recipe

Rae Gun

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making a Frozen Butterbeer Recipe ever since I visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter a few years ago. Since we’re closing out this year’s Happy Harry Potter series I thought it was the perfect time. This recipe is so easy and yummy you’ll feel like you’re at The Three Broomsticks.

lemon sunshine baking cup cookies

hoopla palooza

although these cookies do require you to turn your oven on, the baking time is so quick you can get back to your normal tortured summer heat of a cool 90+ degrees.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp & Pineapple Skewers

Life With The Crust Cut Off

Hey guys!  Today I am going to talk to you a little bit about everybody’s favorite thing, bacon!!  We all love bacon right?  Some people might even think all bacon is created equally, wrong!  Some people might also think bacon is just for breakfast, double wrong!!

The People God Uses

Doorkeeper

To the discouraged blogger who is thinking about giving up

My Love for Words

Dear discouraged blogger, I know you feel like you’ve had it. You’re just don’t feel cut out for this blogging thing.

Homemade & Baked Chocolate Donuts

My Heavenly Recipes

One of our guilty pleasures are Chocolate Donuts. But, with this Momma on a lifestyle change and eating healthier these Baked Chocolate Donuts have become a weekend regular around here!

No-bake Oreo Cheesecake Cups with Cherries Recipe

Upstate Ramblings

A few weeks ago my husband and I were out for dinner, and the restaurant had Oreo Cheesecake on the menu.  We were too full for dessert, but I decided I had to make Oreo Cheesecake for the family.  Since it has been so hot I didn’t want to run the oven, and decided to create No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Cups for the family to enjoy.

Latest Crochet Creations

Life Breath Present

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been getting back to crafting, specifically crochet, which makes me oh so happy! It’s just a wonderful feeling to see something come together. Neither of these projects are solely mine, as I’ve used patterns created by others. But, when something is just so beautiful, why reinvent the wheel, right?

White Chocolate Cookies with Strawberry Buttercream

Homemade Hooplah

I’m having one of those weeks where it feels like I’m working twice but for half the result. I know it’ll pay off in the long run, but for right now, it feels a bit like I’m wearing myself running in one place. I’m being a little vague on what’s going on, but that’s on purpose – my busy week has a lot to do with all the marketing and promoting I’m doing for this blog, and I’m sure you don’t want to read about that any more than I want to write about it.

Lose Weight By Playing With Your Children

**This post is part of my series “TWLD”  which is meant to be posted tomorrow but we are spending our day at the ocean so it’s a little early.**  To catch up with this series click here to read all the previous posts.

There are numerous ways to add in exercise & lose during the warmer months.  It just depends on what your goals are.  For me, I don’t like exercise if it’s a routine.  Blame my adhd on this one.  I like to mix things up a bit and can’t commit to doing the same home exercises each day.  That’s just super boring to me.  But if you can, that’s great!  It just isn’t in my DNA.

There are numerous ways to add in exercise & lose during the warmer months.  It just depends on what your goals are.  For me, I don’t like exercise if it’s a routine.  Blame my adhd on this one.  I like to mix things up a bit and can’t commit to doing the same home exercises each day.  That’s just super boring to me.  But if you can, that’s great!  It just isn’t in my DNA.
I love biking, rollerblading, hiking, swimming, & walking.  But my most favorite way to exercise is by playing with my children.  Running around with them playing tag or playing hopscotch or going for a hike exploring a new area are just a few ways I can enjoy my time with the kids as well as get some exercise in, which in turn helps me lose weight.
The sheer energy children have is amazing and if I can keep up with them there’s no doubt the weight will be melting off me.  Each day I make it a point to engage with my children, being active as much as I can, all the while enjoy their company.  They don’t see it as exercising but as quality time together in which they have my undivided attention.  Plus, I want my children to grow up being active, so when they are adults, they don’t stop being active.  That was the biggest mistake for me, once I hit a certain age, I stopped being active.  I thought being thin meant your healthy, so I never exercised.  That was a hard lesson I learned when I got sick.

2012-06-25 16.32.15

Visiting the Ocean two years where we spent a good portion of our day chasing each other running up and down the coast.

To give you an example of how much calories you can possibly lose by engaging with your children, I used myself as the example below.

  • play tag- 78-200 depending on weight & duration 
  • hopscotch- 104 to 222 calories depending on weight & duration
  • running around playing tag238-327 for 1 hour depending on weight
  • hiking400-526 depending on duration & weight
  • walking– 148-204 depending on weight & speed for 1 hour ( I used slow speed as the example)
  • swimming- 400 calories in 30 minutes
    information taken from: Nutri Strategy & Modern Mom  

As a bonus I’m adding a helpful chart I found that breaks down some household duties & calories lost:
Chart was taken from: Popsugar

Activity Calories Burned
Running after/playing with kids (20 min.) 78
Playing outdoor games like hopscotch or dodgeball (30 min.) 104
Carrying your infant on a walk (30 min.) 109
Walking while pushing a stroller (30 min.) 78
Picking up toys (10 min.) 29
Vacuuming up the plant, food, sand or whatever else your toddler dumped over (10 min.) 29
Mopping up milk, maple syrup, and other spills (10 min.) 44
Washing dishes (10 min.) 22
Sleeping while they nap (45 min.) 41
Putting away groceries (10 min.) 26
Dance party to The Wiggles in the living room (15 min.) 88
Reading stories before bed (10 min.) 10

Aren’t the numbers crazy?  Who needs a gym when you have kids and household duties to attend to?  If you put your mind to it and stay as busy as possible during your days, you can burn through a lot of calories.  Add that to a healthy diet and you have a great way to lose those extra pounds, all while having fun with your children.  
What is your favorite way to exercise?  Why?

What Are Your 3 Must Have Traveling Essentials?

As your getting ready for a trip, you realize you that all your basic needs are met but it took more room than you thought.  You only have room for a few items, my question to you is:  What are 3 must have traveling essentials for your upcoming trip?  Why?  What do your choices say about you?

untitled (1 of 1)-5_tonemapped

For me my must have traveling essentials are the things I couldn’t live without.  After looking at my choices, I realized that all my items are what I use for when I’m creating, they are all part of my creative process.  Each one brings me inspiration, which is why I couldn’t travel without them.  I guess my creative side is more important to me than I thought.  My 3 choices are:

  • my camera 
  • my journal
  • my ipod

Now, it’s your turn, I can’t wait to see all the things you guys come up with.  Be as creative or practical as you would like.
