You were just told your child has an egg allergy, now what? Eggs are found in cakes, cookies, pancakes, waffles, so many different types of the meals prepared daily. This is exactly what happened to my cousin a few weeks back. Her one year old was just diagnosed with an allergic reaction to eggs. Not many people, myself included, know much about this type of allergy. I am very much aware of peanut, milk, and seasonal/environmental allergies, but so much about eggs. As a health & fitness expert who eats and advises clients to eat eggs regularly, am frightened at the ...
Do you exercise with your kids? Are you a "Fit" example? We all know kids will pick up our good habits as well as our bad. I pledge to do my best to implement health & fitness into our daily routine and stick to the good habits! Being a positive role model is what we should all strive for in raising our kids. Practicing proper health & nutrition along with daily exercise & activity is one of the many factors a positive role model entails. These are just a few of the exercises my kids practice daily. The Basics....Stretch and alternate legs without ...
I love to eat & entertain which is one of the reasons I have made it my life's journey to enjoy both without sacrificing or neglecting my health. For me there is nothing worse than the feeling of having to watch what I eat while at a dinner party. In the Latino culture we tend to fall into the "not so healthy" meal trap, which is why I found it necessary to figure out ways to stay true to my roots without losing the flavor! In my book "....Barbara por Atras" A Latin Woman's Guide to Fitness I share some of my favorite ...
I am so excited to finally be able to share great tips and information through a forum that is all for and about kids….our kids, our future! When I was asked to join Bambi Baby in promoting health & fitness I didn’t even think twice. How can I not align myself with a company who believes and stands for the same things I do - A company that stands behind their products & cares about the welfare of the children. As a heath & fitness expert I am here to share with you great tips along with tools that will ...
As much as I try August gives me a bit of anxiety and “butterflies” in my belly. So imagine what it can do to our kids. End of lazy summer days & thoughts of school, new class, new friends, and projects are inevitable. I meditate and think positive thoughts and my kids go on to a new game with hopes that the day does not come. Since we all know it will I’ve developed a checklist to help alleviate with the transition and keep us in check with the changes that will inevitably happen. Feel free to make your own ...
People come into our lives for a reason. Some stay for a while, some don't. But all make a lasting impact that mold our being. I truly believe that. A few months ago I got a call from a woman who lives in California who wanted me to virtually train her. I agreed, and in turn have met a wonderful person who unknowingly is teaching me as much about life as I am her about health & fitness. During todays session she quoted her mom by sharing three words her mom would often tell her. I liked it so much ...
That's all it takes to implement some physical activity into your life. If you don't make a conscience effort to do it, it will not get done. If you don't put on your sneakers you will not workout or get active. If you don't keep that jump rope nearby you will not jump, and if you don't have a medicine ball handy you will not use it. At least that's how I see things, and they've worked for me. I keep my medicine ball in my kitchen as many of you know, and I make sure I use it throughout ...

OK, shower peacefully? Not so sure that will happen anytime soon after having your baby. I still remember bringing the car seat into the bathroom so that I could shower! But working out that I do remember not giving up. Most importantly I did it with my babies.
My favorite baby gear when my kids were infants & toddlers was the Baby Carrier. Not only was it great to enjoy being close with my baby, but it also allowed my hands and body to be free to do other things.
I would use my carrier for everything! Shopping, parks, vacations, long walks & exercising. Yes, for working out as well. Squats, lunges, step ups. All great exercises that can be done with your baby in the carrier.
Making sure your baby is secure, you are able to get in some nice leg and glute workouts. Oh and the belly laughter you will get out of your bundle of joy, priceless! Better yet you will be setting the ground work for exercising as a family early on and having fun!
Until next time…xoxo…B

Appalling isn’t it? How can one even ask such a question? Of course my baby is!! I would do anything for my baby, my kids. Any good parent would.
Ok, now let me ask this question? How many out there own the latest tech gadget? IPhone, Mac, Thunderbolt, etc. Did you even think twice before buying it? Did you have to have it the minute it came out? New rims for your car, new shoes for that outfit, new bag? Every time a new “device” comes out the lines to the store are overwhelming, and people are running to get it before it sells out.
Why isn’t that the same when shopping for your baby’s safety and comfort?
Now too long ago I overheard someone inquiring about a new stroller for her one year old. When told it was a little over $200 she was alarmed and said “oh no! That’s too much for a stroller” Ok, maybe she’s on a budget and simply cannot afford to put her baby in a stroller that costs $200. Shortly after I overheard that same lady discussing with her friend how she is getting the new IPhone as soon as it comes out. Hmmmm…..doesn’t the IPhone cost over $200? A true luxury & not a necessity?
To me purchasing the right stroller for my baby would take priority over a new phone. After all if your baby is going to be uncomfortable on that cheaper stroller, chances are he/she will be screaming so hard you won’t be able to hear a word, let alone hold a conversation on your new snazzy phone
The same goes with a car seat. So many parents penny pinch when it comes to true necessities for their baby. Cribs, Car Seats, Strollers. Three essentials that your baby will be using all the time during their early years. Three essentials that if purchased wisely will determine you & your baby’s comfort & safety. Yet so many rather blow their paycheck on a new phone, gadget, hot pair of shoes
Got you thinking? What’s more important to you? Would you get a used crib over a refurbished phone? Love to hear your comments….

And so they go…..Back to School!! World be good to them!
One last thought….Parents as we send our children off to school once again, remember two very important words….”Inspire Greatness” Its not all up to the school teachers, it is also our responsibility to do so as parents….the first teachers our children will ever know.
