NO-GYM WORKOUT: MOM OF 7 TALKS AB-TONING AFTER PREGNANCY USING THE ‘AB ROLLER’

Heya, I trust that you and your family have been doing well and are finding great ways to keep busy and reduce the stresses we are all prune to worldwide right now! I am definitely praying for the best outcome for our planet like many others are right now. Despite everything I have been counting my blessings and keeping my mind focused on as much positive things as possible. The girls and I are keeping active in the community by contributing to the many efforts and community initiatives taking place in our country. There have been many wonderful families who have been negatively affected by the economic impact of Covid around here and it is taking everyone's effort to help out. I hope things are not too out-of-whack near you. At home I have turned to baking quite often and squeezing in exercise of course, though never as often as I would like. After 7 pregnancies I managed to keep things together by using a variety of targeted exercises, though never routinely or even consistently, yet it somehow 'works out' haha. In addition to enjoying a little sensuality and fitness through belly dancing around my living room; the Ab Roller has been one of my fave exercise tools for repairing and strengthening my abdominal muscles over the past 14+ years. I usually start doing this 8 to 12 weeks after birth and have managed to maintain a comfortable weight, size and tone. Take a stroll over to my blog to hear my experience with ab rolling and a bit about recovering your body after childbirth.

SINGLE MOM LIFE 101: LETTING GO OF OUR MISTAKES

Fact is - a father who can walk away from his child/ren without ever voluntarily wanting to do something for them is really no loss to the child. If you have to beg your child/ren's father to see them, or call them or help with them - it is prob best to just let that loser vanish and concentrate on raising that child to be strong, independent, highly educated and to rise above all odds. We ladies lose so much energy battling our own mistake trying to not let it feel like our mistake! We fked up - we chose a waste man - it's a fact. Continue reading...

MOTIVATED BY MOTHERHOOD: MY CHILDREN SAVED MY LIFE

When my beautiful babies are grown and moving out to find their own lives and families I pray to be in a little rocking chair on the front porch looking at the quiet yard and remembering those care-free giggles and crazy screams that I never thought would transform so quickly in to the adult voices that call from university or wherever the future and my great God leads my little ones.

MY FIRST PREGNANCY: THE CHALLENGES OF BEING A TEEN MOTHER

I learnt about sex at an early age, not intercourse itself, but masturbation, relations with boys, fondling, etc I don't think the fact I got pregnant at 17 years old surprised many people; but it did shock them when I became pregnant at 17 (pic below) only 3 months after winning the coveted title of "Miss Teen Cayman Islands". I was heartbroken, damn well distraught.
