Oh, hello Friday; I am welcoming you with open arms! Today’s post is a Five Things Friday with the categories of Food, Fashion, Baby, Health, and Fitness. There’s a little something for all of you!
I ordered a pack of Essential Coconut coconut butters and they just arrived! Creamy cashew was the first I opened (fantastic!), and I made myself a rule that I will only open one a day. I could honestly literally eat an entire jar of nut (or coconut) butter in one sitting. Not healthy, I know, people. Moderation. The other flavors are sweet almond, honey pecan, and original. DROOL.
I’m all about shopping online these days. My life is busy, and running errands with the little man is hectic enough. Trying on clothes with him while out? Forget about it. My favorite online boutiques with affordable prices are: Simple Addiction, Mindy Mae’s Market, and White Plum. I bought several pieces for the winter, and am now in need of a few new ones for the spring. Are there any other boutiques I should know about?
My baby has his first ear infection! Last week while in Arizona, William’s sleep was the worst it’s ever been. It’s no secret that he’s never been a good sleeper, but last week was atrocious. I attributed it to being in a new place, but it got worse when we returned. Long story short, I took him to the doctor on Monday and they discovered he has his first ear infection. I’m glad they found something which was causing his discomfort. It was so sad to see him miserable. He’s definitely on the mend now thanks to antibiotics!
As most of you know, William is a frequent vomiter. We’re still not sure of the cause, so I thought I would try some probiotics for him. It was good timing because probiotics restore the normal flora (bacteria) in the stomach that the antibiotic kills. The probiotics I was recommended was Garden of Life RAW Probiotics for Kids. They’re organic and I ordered them from iHerb (affiliate) because they have the best prices. I’m not sure yet if they are making a difference because it’s only been a few days, but I’m glad to be giving William probiotics while he is on antibiotics and will most likely continue even when we’re finished with his medication. I mix them in with pureed baby food or yogurt, and he doesn’t even notice a difference.
- 50 Wall Balls: This was the worst part. BRUTAL.
- 40 Kettlebell Swings: Be sure to maintain proper form. Don’t try to swing too heavy if your form will be compromised!
- 30 Box Jumps: These are so much fun! Love love love!
- 20 V-Ups: These were supposed to be “toes to bar,” but I can’t do those.
- 10 Pull-Ups: I did banded pull-ups as a modification. The original workout called for “muscle-ups.” Those are impressive to watch – my brother especially!
Tell me something about: food, fashion, baby, health, or fitness!
