For this post, I’m partnering with EyeQue to bring you information on their newest product, a kid-centric vision tracker – Insight.
Before I tell you about the latest technology find that’s got me excited, how about a (related) Throwback Thursday teaser? It’s related, I promise! Me. As a kid. With glasses. Oh, mercy.
Disclosure: I was sent products from ARM & HAMMER™ Simply Saline™ in exchange for this review. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own.
Oh, hello sinus season. This year, you are going down. My family, all four of us, are chronic sinus sufferers. Fall and winter can be absolutely miserable, to say the least. (Think about it, man cold for months, and I’m guilty, too.)
Disclosure: I was sent products (Lice Shield) to review in exchange for a review on my blog. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own.
Arianna has been attending school for three years, and (knock on wood) we’ve been lucky to not have a lice scare so far. (I know, that probably sounds horrible, but with all the dress-up, hugs, and bean bag sitting in pre-school, I’m a nervous mom. As a kid, I had one lice scare, and lucky Jack or I never got it. I say we’re lucky, because I’d honestly probably freak out and shave my own head out of fear!)
I’ll admit, for the last 29 years I have not been so kind to myself. This year, I turn 30 and have turned over a new leaf in my quest to be healthy (and that’s not just the physical, it’s the mental, too).
Specifically, the years I spent in college and in Myrtle Beach were the harshest on my body. I entered college at 253 pounds (eek!) and “never looked back”. There were days when I would eat pizza for all three meals and did not care in the least. I had a “plateau” weight that I pretty much maintained through college then dropped a good bit of it off upon moving to Myrtle Beach, only to pack it back on during an abusive relationship (where I forgot how to love myself, since I figured I was unlovable being beat and broken).
Yesterday, Greg, the kids, and I walked in the Pittsburgh Heart Walk. It was a 5K, and although the crowd and the wagon pushed us over 20 minutes per mile, the fact that we are able to just wake up and walk that far is super.
Today, I am thankful for health. For those who look for cures for heart disease, for those who live every day as survivors. And for my own health. While I am a pretty healthy person, I have been on a year-long journey to keep doing better for myself. I’d like to think there’s a nice difference in my health from last year…
