We all strive to be healthy. We try to make healthier choices for ourselves and our family. We watch what we eat and routinely exercise, but we can always be doing more to get fit in our life. While running errands around town, I realized I needed new running shoes. The pair I was wearing was really wearing out. I just did not realize how bad these shoes had actually gotten until I put on my new pair of running shoes, the Mizuno Wave Rider 21. Now, I can hit the ground running with Mizuno.

It’s easy to hit the ground running with Mizuno. Simply lace up and go about your day. You’ll wonder why you waited to get the Mizuno Wave Rider 21 running shoes? The Mizuno Wave Rider 21 is very comfortable and offers great support and stability which is great for running the pavement, marathons, the gym, or errands around town.

My favorite features of the Mizuno Wave Rider 21 are their superior feel and comfortability. They are light-weight enough that it feels like I’m not wearing shoes. Yet, they’re stable enough while performing, which means that whether you’re running a marathon, walking around town, or at the gym, the Wave Rider 21 has you covered.

Busy Moms Love Amwell On Demand Healthcare.


We as mothers have a lot on our plate and with that “Do It All” attitude we neglect to care for ourselves properly, and an illness can sideline you quick. Sometimes it’s not an illness and we just need to talk to someone. Parenthood, stress, anxiety, and other issues can really get to me. I have so much going on in my daily life that it gets a bit overwhelming at times. Scheduling an appointment at a psychologist office I don’t have time for.  So I thought, until I discovered Amwell. An on demand healthcare provider.

Amwell makes it their mission to prioritizing mom’s mental health. Amwell lets me talk to a therapist on my schedule, or if my child is sick I can access the app or visit them online for a health visit. It is definitely my go-to healthcare option. I have healthcare available at my fingertips.

Modern Tendencies in Pharmacology


    Medicine and pharmacology are primarily public services. They were established in order to treat sick people of a country thus retaining working potential and preserving longevity of families. As time went by, both of these sectors became privatized, at least in most countries of the world. Due to this, the entire game has changed and pharmacies, as well as medical institutions, have become highly commercialized like any other economic organization. Today, people performing these professions are highly respected and properly compensated for their work. However, that doesn’t mean they do not make mistakes.

   The pharmaceutical industry has especially become notorious in the last couple of decades. Bogus medicines and numerous customers’ complaints have led to severe changes in this industry. Owners of these companies realized that drugs need to be drastically changed if they wish to retain customers.

The body is a perfect mechanism that has its own defenses. But, it cannot cure every problem and from time to time we get affected by certain diseases. Some of them will even lead to damaged organs and a loss of cellular structure. Until now, medical workers have tried to resolve this issue by providing medicine that will stop the disease. However, as it goes with the body, damage done to it is usually permanent. Even though organism’s have good natural immunity, it is not omnipotent. Also, as it gets older, it slowly loses ability to regenerate. Because of this, prevention is imposed as the first principle of treatment.

    Nowadays, supplements are the most popular pharmaceutical product. There is a positive thing about supplements for both users and producers. By taking these products, the patient is able to resupply his organism and to prevent diseases from happening. On the other hand, the fact that they can be used by healthy people as well as sick, has significantly increased the profits of pharmaceutical companies. Specialists from YouDrugstore claim that these supplements are the precise reason why the entire industry is blooming.  

    Also, companies have taken a different approach when it comes to standard drugs. Side effects were common problem for most of the products that were present in a regular pharmacy. Sensing an opportunity, organizations started making new and improved versions of classic medication. These drugs often have organanic components which make them easy to absorb. They leave no trace or any they do not lead to any other problems.

A New Normal with Violet iodine!

We are again discussing PMS and Breast Health. Every month, we put up with the symptoms of pms and our menstrual cycle. Breast tenderness, swelling and heaviness and aches are very common symptoms that we unfortunately deal with during our menstrual cycle. We can change all of that and have a New NORMAL with Violet iodine!

Violet Iodine

I recently started taking Violet iodine, a molecular iodine dietary supplement for woman’s breast health. That helps alleviate premenstrual breast discomfort. Violet iodine is a once daily, non-prescription, non-hormone pill.

When taken daily, before a meal, your body will start feeling the effects after a few weeks to a few months (results vary due to individual needs) You may take either one to two tablets depending on the severity of your symptoms. I mainly took one pill a day, but occasionally took two, when my symptoms seemed worse. Three and a half weeks into my trial I felt the effects of taking Violet iodine daily. The severity of my premenstrual symptoms had decreased. The breast tenderness was not as horrible as usual. They were not as heavy or as swollen as they normally get. I could actually hug my family without it hurting my chest. Because #HugsShouldntHurt ever.

Violet iodine pic

I never thought in my life that I would ever look forward to my next premenstrual cycle. I know Crazy Right!? Just so I can see how much more Violet iodine has helped with the uncomfortable symptoms of pms. After it has had a chance to build up in my body to affect it more. I highly recommend Violet iodine if you want relief from pms symptoms.

This is an easy addition to your wellness routine that can make a huge difference in how you feel month after month. When you take a simple pill every day the result is true relief from pain. You know that you are proactively taking care of your breasts health. With Violet iodine you are 60 days to the start of a “new normal”. A life where breast discomfort doesn’t get in your way. A life where Hugs don’t hurt.

General Precautions- Consult a doctor before taking any dietary supplements. Especially if you are pregnant or nursing, have a pre-existing medical condition, are taking prescription medications, or have had bariatric surgery. If you have a history (or family history) of thyroid disease or a known allergy to or hypersensitivity to iodine. Visit VioletDaily.com for more information.

Thank you Violet iodine and Blogger Babes for this opportunity. Let me know what you think by tagging #HugsShouldntHurt on Facebook and Twitter.

What Do Moms Care Most About When It Comes to their Kids?

What do moms care most about when it comes to their kids? We care that our kids are eating healthy. We want to know what is in the food we feed our families. We have a right to know what is in the food we eat. What’s Scary is right now it’s not possible for me know what is in our food since GMOs are not labeled in the United States.

Great News Moms

We are not alone in wanting to know what’s in the food we feed our families. 93% of American Moms support mandatory labeling of GMOs. A group of celebrity moms have come together and joined many other parents, food advocates, and supporters across the US to sign the Just Label It’s Conceal or Reveal petition in support of GMO labeling. 


If wanting to know what’s in your kids food is important to you, I ask you join your fellow moms, food advocates, celebrities and supporters to Sign the Petition telling the big food companies like Quaker Oats of PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, General Mills, Kellogg’s and Campbell’s to stop blocking Americans’ right to know if there are GMOs in their food and to support mandatory FDA labeling. 

Did you know that these large food companies combined have spent more than $100 million to fight GMO labeling campaigns across the U.S. They support the anti-consumer DARK ACT (Deny the Americans their Right to Know). To me, the more transparent a company is with their practices, the more consumers, like you and I, will trust them. The Dark Act makes it harder for American consumers to get the transparency we deserve. The real kicker is that these companies already label GMOs in their food in other countries, So “why not here at home in the USA?”

Conceal or Reveal 11

The celebrities that have joined the campaign and are featured in the video below are Jillian Micheals, Sara Gilbert, Ginnifer Goodwin, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jordanna Brewster, and Constance Zimmer. The video highlights the question,

“What do moms care most about when it comes to their kids?”

Lets Discuss PMS and Boob Discomfort

plus a Twitter Party

Lets Discuss PMS and boob discomfort, plus a Twitter Party.
As women, we deal with many symptoms of our menstrual cycle every month. Uncomfortable PMS and boob pain are apart of that. Breast discomfort and pain is a real problem for many woman during PMS and menstrual cycle. Everyone’s level of discomfort is different, but the symptoms are commonly similar. I know I’m not alone, this happens to most women. My boobs are very tender and they swell so much. To the point that I don’t want to wear my favorite bra or any bra for that fact. Your forced to wear an old standby and hope by the end of the day your boobs don’t hurt worse.
I remember when my children were little and would run full force to hug me. I would bend down to pick them up and with their little arms flying and smack so hard into my aching, tender breasts. I was happy to get a hug from my child, but was in pain because my boobs were so tender. #HugsShouldntHurt ever, not from your child, your spouse, or anyone.

Will Quaker Oats lose Moms as their biggest supporters?


93% of Moms

Moms across the nation are fed up not knowing if the food they feed their families contains GMOs or not. All for the simple fact that big food companies, like Quaker Oats, DO NOT LABEL it. The more transparent a company is with their practices, the more consumers, like you and me, will trust them. Will Quaker Oats lose Moms as their biggest supporters? because of their practices.

As a mother, I want to know what my food contains that I feed to my family. I want to know that I’m feeding my kids a healthy, wholesome meal. I can’t do that if it’s not properly labeled.

I am not alone in wanting my food labeled that it contains GMOs.

93% of MOMs support mandatory labeling of GMOs.

Are you one of these moms? If you are than have your voice heard and Sign the Petition asking Quaker to support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs!

Did you know that big food companies, like Quaker Oats and their parent company PepsiCo fund millions in lobbying campaigns to deny the consumers the right to know about GMOs and to stop mandatory labeling of GMOs. They are not alone. Other big food and biotechnology companies spent $63 million in 2014 alone, against GMO labeling. Why , what do they not want us to know?

These companies already label GMO products overseas, why not here at home in the USA? Give us the option of knowing whether to feed our children foods produced with GMOs.

8 in 10 MOMS

80% of moms want Quaker to stop funding anti-GMO labeling efforts. 

Why are they willing to lose the trust of MOMs? Everyday across the nation, Moms give their child a Quaker chewy granola bar. All we want is the peace of mind by knowing that our food is labeled as a GMO product.

Join MOMs across the nation in asking Quaker to support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs, Stop funding anti-mandatory labeling efforts, and stand up against the DARK Act! Sign this petition below!

Will Quaker Oats Conceal or Reveal GMOs?

This post was created as part of the Just Label It campaign in which I’m a compensated Labeling Advocate. All opinions expressed are my own.

As a parent I want to know what is in the food that my family eats. Do you want to know what is in your food? Most of the world does know. Most countries, including all of Europe and Asia, require GMO labeling, but not America. Many large food companies label GMOs in their products abroad, so you would think they would at home too, but they don’t.

Did you know that Quaker’s parent company, PepsiCo, is spending millions to keep you and your family from knowing what’s in your food?
Unfortunately, Quaker is one of many Big Food companies using their deep pockets to lobby against MANDATORY GMO labeling. Through the trade association,  the Grocery Manufacturers Association, they are supporting a bill in Congress that we call the Dark Act – because it would Deny Americans the Right to Know whether our food has been genetically engineered.



Sign the petition below to ask Quaker to join us and to support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs! 

Will Quaker Oats Conceal or Reveal GMOs

It’s hard for Quaker to maintain that honest, wholesome image when they are stopping consumers from knowing what’s in their food. To me, the more transparent a company is with their practices, the more consumers, like you and I, will trust them.

GMO crops have led to huge increases in herbicide use, which contributes to an array of threats to the health of people and the environment.  And in case you missed it, the World Health Organization recently labeled the main herbicide used on GMO crops as probably carcinogenic.


People all across the country are fed up with being kept in the dark. In fact, 92% of Americans support mandatory GMO labeling and want to know what is in their food according to a recent Consumer Reports national survey.

That is why I’m working with Just Label It to bring the Conceal or Reveal campaign to Quaker’s doorstep. But we need your voice as well, to help support GMO labeling.

Sign the petition: Ask Quaker to join us and support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs, stop funding anti-mandatory labeling efforts, and stand up against the DARK Act!
