Getting back on track

 

  

 

 

Dear Readers,

 

I apologies for my lack of posts! These past two weeks McCarthy has been very sick with some type of bug (we are still waiting on lab results). With this sickness came lots of exhausting days, sleepless nights and total frustration that I did not have the power to fix my sick baby. Parenting has been one of the hardest and most amazing things I will ever go through. Just when you think there is no possible way that you can love someone or hurt for someone anymore…Boom! They wake up, call your name and even if you have not slept in days, your heart melts at the sight of them (even if they are covered in a substance you would not wish on your worst enemy).  These past two weeks have been a struggle to be emotionally and mentally present for anyone other than McCarthy. 

The good news is, although we still are waiting on lab results,  McCarthy does seem to be getting better! I have spent countless hours looking up safe natural ways of treating stomach virus, parasites etc.. These are some of the things I really feel have helped McCarthy on his road to recovery (PLEASE CONTACT your Doctor or Pediatrician for advice on what is the best option for you and your baby)

1) Coconut oil

I highly recommend you pick up this book!

 

2) Probitics-  Sisu-probiotic’s for babies and Bio K Yogurt

We really saw a huge change in McCarthy once we increased his probitics. After doing some research on the benefits of Probiotics for babies I headed to Natures Fare and picked up Bio K. Within hours his runny stool stopped, energy increased and appetite picked up. 

 



3) B.R.A.T Diet

Bananas – Rice – Applesauce – Toast

The foods that make up the B.R.A.T diet are those foods that will help cause the bulking and hardening of the stool. These foods include grains, and certain fruits. Below are more foods that will help firm-up and bind baby’s stools when diarrhea occurs.

 

We are on the road to recovery! Be prepared lots of blog posts coming your way!!!!

Enjoy your day and be healthy!

Dress up your luon

 

 

 lululemon Lab

There maybe mixed reviews on this blog post, but I truly feel the matter of how to dress up your lululemon pants is a very important subject. I’m always running from teaching to coffee,lunch with a friend,a last minute date with the husband and I want to look good! There are proper ways and improper ways to achieving the perfect street wear look for whatever your day may hold.  Instead of focusing on the negative uses of the lululemon pants (such as heels with your lululemon, DON’T DO IT!) Let’s focus on the positive ways to achieve trendy looks with your stretchy pants.

 

#1 Play up your street wear look with a bold sweater and comfy sneakers- 

 

Alexandra pulls this look off wonderfully with her bold choices. This is the perfect to and from yoga class outfit.

#2 Add boots and yes faux fur!

So your heading out after bootcamp for a coffee date with the girlfriends and your starting to feel like every time your scene in public your sporting your lulu’s. Not a problem! Throw on some cute boots, pair it up with a denim or leather bomber jacket and finish your look off with your favourite faux fur item. You’ll show up not only looking great but also loving the four way stretch in your tights. (My favourite-The wonder under lululemon athletica)

#3 Add Socks-

If your like me, there are very few times you ever work out in anything other then a crop. So rather then freezing your poor little legs off, add some fantastic knee socks to your wardrobe! Pair them up with your favourite white blouse, the perfect pair of riding boots, a chunky scarf and your ready to start your day!

 

I hope these fashion tips help lift your spirits as you pull on your running tights and hit the gym!
