Is Your Lifestyle Killing You? (plus an Offer You Do not Want to Miss)

How healthy and fit are you? Really, on a scale from 0 to 10 (0 being a complete couch potato and 10 being a Navy seal) where are you?

A few weeks ago my husband participated in a fun event called the Marine Corps Mud Run. When he signed up for it he didn’t know what he was getting into. I must say that my hubby is in pretty good shape – he runs and lifts weights most days of the week. When he started the race he thought that his fitness level was around 7, when he was finished he felt like a “3.” Why am I telling you this? First of all I want to take part in a Mud Run next year (the idea of running, getting over obstacles while covered in mud for a good cause has some masochistic appeal to me), but also it means that I have to work hard to get my fitness level up.

Do Not Eat Poop in Life

Yesterday my worst parenting nightmare came true. I would really prefer not to have the experience that I’ve had yesterday but it made me think about life actually.

Yesterday my 16-months old babies were playing in their room. We were getting ready for a big trip to the grocery store (they usually like riding in shopping carts and that’s a big deal for them). Suddenly my husband and I heard very loud coughing followed by screaming and crying. Our first thought was that one of the girls was choking on something and she could not breathe. Needless to say that our hearts sank and we ran as fast as we could into the baby room. By the time we got there everybody was crying and that was a good sign, it meant that both of our girls were breathing.
