The List You Are Missing in Your Parental Journey
When you find out you’re pregnant, you get bombarded with endless lists. “Don’t eat this” list, “Don’t do that” list. You get the “What to pack for birth” and “What you need for baby” list. You get the “Top 5 prenatal workout tips”, and even the “Top 5 relationship tips” list. But amid the seemingly helpful advice, we are missing something.

Oranges still find their way to a few sports fields, but is seems like this nutritious half-time snack is a thing of the past…
Take a Knee: Action Steps to Prevent Sport Injuries
It’s a familiar scene. Parents and friends cheering loudly from the sideline. The ball is moving rapidly across the field as players shift and chase. Then, all of a sudden, someone is down. Everyone on the field takes a knee while the coach runs over to assess the injury. Cheers are replaced by silence, and a concerned mom or dad inches closer to the field. Everyone waits. Finally, the injured player stands and limps off the field with the help of the coach and everyone claps as the game resumes…
Your Fit Buddy Has Four Legs
A 2017 study in the Journal of Nutrition found that walking just three hours per week increased weight loss and decreased body fat percentage for those already doing a nutrition program. The simple truth is that small steps add up… pun intended. Walking short distances will eventually add up to miles, that lead to a healthier body and pounds lost.
