Weekend Newsflash: Food Shame at School, It Happened To My kid. Plus, Body Transformation Inspiration.

FOOD SHAME. MY DAUGHTER WAS THE TARGET.

food shame

Just look at her. Gracie (aka, Greedy Baby) is growing up fast. We took this pic after one of her All Star cheer competitions. I am instilling into the child that she is an athlete and must be certain to make good food choices. Little did I know, she actually listened to my guidance and began buying salads for lunch everyday, and encouraged her friend to do the same.

Gracie was the target of food shame because of salad. Some of her Kindergarten classmates teased her for choosing salads at lunchtime. Apparently it’s a “stupid and disgusting” meal, according to her peers.  Good thing she doesn’t cave to pressure.

Her reaction? “Mommy, the kids at school don’t understand that I’m an athlete. I’m going to keep buying my salads”.

I’m so proud of this little bug. She also eats salad and a healthy a protein after each practice. It’s what she asks for.

Ps. Greedy Baby now has her very own website called GracieGlitter.com I’m still in the process of making her blog extra fab, but the site is live. This is Gracie’s space to blog and share the fun things happening in her life. If you have young daughters who you think might enjoy Gracie’s blog, go on and check it out!

BODY TRANSFORMATION INSPIRATION

I came across this pic on the interwebs. This chick has done a fantastic job at transforming her body. Be inspired, my friends. Be inspired into action.

Colloidal Silver Cough Drops. Do they really work?

Hrrrmmm? When I Googled me up some Colloidal Silver Cough Drops, I was 0% confident that such a thing actually existed. I was ready to quit my day job and build a throat lozenge empire because no one had yet thought of the idea to make a cough drop containing colloidal silver.

But alas. I was wrong. Colloidal silver cough drops do, in fact, exist already. Dammit!

colloidal silver cough drop

I ordered the cough drops a long while ago, just knowing that a fiasco like my hair stylist breathing her infectious breath on me was bound to happen sooner or later. I hate using cough drops like Halls — they pretty much taste like battery acid. Just knowing the power of colloidal silver made me anxious to try these out.

But do they really work?

colloidal silver lozenge ingredients

Heck yeah they work! The lozenge is actually quite tasty and pleasant to suck on. The candy-shaped drops contain organic brown rice syrup, organic evaporated cane juice, honey, lemon essential oil, and a nice dose of 30ppm of silver.

With all the coughing and hacking I was doing, these natural cough drops can go up against any mainstream lozenge. But the bonus is that I actually enjoyed the silver lozenge and never dreaded the time when I would have to pop another one. It also soothed my throat a little better than the average drug store cough drop.

The lozenges did not appear to speed up my cold’s overall healing time, but did provide darn near instant relief of my throat symptoms. You know me! My goal is to go the natural remedy route with just about every ailment me and my family are threatened by, yet despite all this raving about Colloidal Silver Cough Drops, my wish for you is to be non-sick and not even have to deal with any coughing or hacking.

Stay well, you lovely-sexy-fantastic human!

Medical Face Mask: Something gross happened when I wore one.

face

I don’t get sick much, but when I sat in my hair stylist’s chair, she proceeded to hack up 25 lungs in a coughing fit that left me reeling. I immediately knew I was doomed. First the convulsive sneezing started. And within 36 hours I was on the phone calling out sick from work.

I lay bedridden for awhile, drinking hot tea and watching nature shows on Discovery Channel (it’s a damn shame what those hyenas did to that cheetah).

But let’s back up a sec. My first line of defense to speed my recovery from a cold is to up my intake of oregano oil. It’s a critical step that I encourage you to try. Yet I also did something revolutionary: I donned a disposable ear loop face mask for my family’s sake.

The masks have been in my medical supply hoard since 2013. I’ve been saving them for the apocalypse, of course. But the light bulb went off inside my brain and persuaded me to use a mask right now. I pulled out a few masks in the morning before doing the daily prep of the kid’s anti-stomach flu concoction, and then I did some laundry. I looked damn sexy in that mask, but that’s neither here nor there.

And now here comes the gross part: After about an hour, all that coughing, sneezing and heavy breathing I did caused the part of the mask touching my nose and mouth to become very wet. The mask captured all that moisturized nastiness.

Disgusting, isn’t it?

Without my mask, all of those sneezes and coughs of wetness may have otherwise spewed into the air around my house. Sure, I had tissues on hand, but I doubt it would have captured those viral aerosols as well as the mask did. This got me thinking about how other people’s aerosols of grossness are in the air all around us. Nasty, nasty, nasty.

(Sidenote: I no longer go out of my way to shake hands with people. I simply don’t know where their hands have been.)

Who has time to be sick, right? But more importantly, I don’t want my child spawns to be ill. It’s been over a week since I did the mask trick and my gremlin children and doing well with no cold symptoms. The mask was no bother to me at all. In the midst of feeling like total crap, donning the mask gave me a bit of empowerment over the situation. It was comfortable to wear and obviously did the job I needed it to do.  

So consider this: Next time your nostrils and pie hole become a loaded gun of germ-infested ammunition, do your entire household a favor and put a mask on it.
