Travel Tips for Summer Vacations

Travel Tips

When packing for a trip, what to pack takes some thought. You’ll have to make a decision about how many clothes and what kind of shoes to pack. Usually it will be decided by how many days you will be staying. Whether you will be going out at night or what you will be doing during the day.

For me I like long trips, long trips for me are about five to seven days. That’s compared to a weekend. I remember going on a weekend trip to Florida with our church, I had to pack something to swim in. We had a pool and the beach. We were only able to look at the beach because a storm came through a few days earlier and seaweed washed up on the sand. But our plans didn’t change. We had a good time going out to the beach at night with a flashlight to see the sand crabs crawl quickly back under the sand when the light was shined. I don’t think they’re visible during the day because of the sunlight.

On that trip I took only a duffle bag with:

4 shirts

3 pair of shorts

1 skirt

5 undergarment sets

1 pair of sandals

1 pair flip flops

Hair dryer

Toiletries

1 plastic laundry bag

 I put everything I needed in that duffle bag.

One year our family went to Virginia Beach on a six day bus trip.  It was a lot of fun seeing new places and different sites. I had two suitcases and two carry on. That was a big mistake and it was too much to handle. The wheels broke off my new fancy suitcase.

In the carry on I had: 1 throw blanket, 6 bottles of water, snacks and food. In the other carry on I had a laptop and study materials. I was taking classes online at the time.

In my suitcases I had:

5 t-shirts 

2 pair of jeans

3 pairs of shorts

2 pair of sandals

6 underwear sets

4 gowns

Toiletries

Getting ready for a trip is so overwhelming if you don’t take a little time each day doing some of the packing. Don’t do everything the night before because you will forget something that could have made you more comfortable and stress free. If you start early you will have time to narrow down your packing to one suitcase and one carry on.

Weight Loss After Having Your Baby

Learning how to lose weight fast and easily after having a baby can be easier now because of the internet. There are so many different diets on the web that will give you a good start. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that if a healthy woman gets pregnant she will gain 25 to 35 pounds before the baby is born. But during my first pregnancy, I gained 52 pounds. Can you imagine how I felt carrying all that weight around?  Now I am relieved to hear that according to the CDC that almost half of the women gain more weight than they recommend during pregnancy. I realize that the baby weighs a few pounds and so do the placenta, amniotic acid, breast tissue, blood, the uterus, and extra fat, but too much fat gained is called baby weight. If that weight stays on your body your weight will increase as time goes on, diabetes and heart disease will be at a higher risk. So it’s best to work on a plan during pregnancy to lose weight after the baby is born.

Why is baby weight hard to lose?

            After having your baby your body has to take time to heal. But while your body is healing you don’t have time to do a lot of things you should be doing like exercise, sleeping and eating right. So taking care of the baby is taking most of your time, you are really not thinking about losing weight.  

            Never stop eating to cut calories because your metabolism is not the same as before you had your baby. If you don’t eat your body slows down when it’s not getting the necessary nutrients for you or your baby if you are breast feeding. When breast feeding, your metabolic rate speeds up which calls for you to take in extra calories just to make the milk healthy for your baby.

            If you are choosing the wrong foods just to have something that’s convenient for that time it could be costly for you. You should plan meals ahead of time to be sure of nutritional value. Health experts recommend that nursing mothers take in 2500 calories in a day. It is hard when there is a new born to take care of. Even I had trouble getting things done when my children were infants. I ate when I could, sleep when I could and so on for cleaning and personal things. Sometimes I had help and it meant a lot to me, so thankful.

            Staying hydrated is important when trying to lose weight. Most women don’t get enough water. You should drink about half the weight of your body. Staying hydrated keeps you from overeating, helps gut health, your metabolism, keeps your energy level up, and helps regulate your mood.

10 Tips to help with weight loss

  • Be realistic when you set your goal for weight loss – It would not be realistic for me to plan and lose over 50 pounds a month after pregnancy. Because after 1 or 2 years the expected weight after the baby is 10 pounds.
  • Crash diets are not the way to go – Using low-calorie meals will not give you enough good nutrition for you or the baby. You need the energy to take care of the new baby and if you are breastfeeding the milk needs the nutrients for the baby.
  • Put lots of protein in your diet at breakfast – Proteins in your diet will help metabolism, decrease your appetite, and cut down on your calorie intake. Some proteins are lean meats, eggs, fish, beans, nuts, seeds, and dairy.
  • Breastfeeding your baby – Breastfeeding has benefits for you and your baby. It provides nutrition, helps the immune system to fight viruses, bacteria, other diseases like diabetes, and asthma in your baby. It helps lower the mother’s risk of high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and breast and ovarian cancer.
  • Watch calories when eating – This will let you know where your problem areas are and get the energy and nutrition for your health.
  • Put a lot of fiber in your diet – Fiber – grains, and vegetables help with weight loss, it helps you to feel fuller by reducing hunger.
  • Choose foods with nourishing nutrients – Foods with the most nourishing nutrients are Salmon, Kale, seaweed, garlic, shellfish, potatoes, liver, sardines, shellfish-clams, oysters, scallops, and mussels.
  • Take extra sugar out of your diet – Taking in too much sugar is very high in calories and can cause weight gain and has no nutritional value. Sugar will also cause an increase in diabetes, heart disease. A few foods and drinks that are high in sugar are sugary drinks like soda and fruit drinks. Foods are cakes, pastries, biscuits, white flour, and processed foods. Eating vegetables, fruits, meats, fish, eggs, and yogurt are great alternatives instead to eating sugar.
  • Get the sleep you need at night – Obesity can come when you’re not getting 5-6 hours of sleep at night. When not getting enough sleep slows down the way the body makes calories into energy, this called metabolism. If the metabolism is not active the body makes energy that’s not being used as fat.
  • Keep your stress level down – When you are continually under stress it will make you hungry and you will eat more. It will set off the hormones known as adrenaline and cortisol that decrease your appetite. The cortisol tells the body that nutrition needs to be replaced with carbohydrates a necessary fuel. The insulin sends the sugar that comes from the carbohydrates from the blood to your muscles and brain. If the sugar is not used it will be stored in the body as fat. Exercise is also important when trying to keep your stress levels down and recommended for keeping the weight off.

            Losing weight after childbirth is never easy. But you can do it by listening to your body to see what’s needed. Exercise and eat right to assure your success in losing your baby weight. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if needed. Because every new parent needs a break sometimes, so they can come back strong and ready to meet every challenge that will be there.

Start Earning With Instagram

Here is how you can  make over $750 per WEEK in 2020 & Years to come… just by using Instagram on complete Autopilot!

Update – Yes, this works even in COVID-19 Times!!

Hi, my name is Dawson Trevor and next to me is my best bud, Max! 

I would not be fair if i would not give my dog Max his credit for My  Success on Instagram!

I am about to tell you something shocking that will change the way you look at Instagram FOREVER!! ..and it is very important that you read everything that will follow carefully.

I thank you in advance for your attention.

I will start by saying that I am not going reveal my age yet, but I will tell you that it plays a role in this message and you will see the reason very soon.

I am just going to tell you that I have been a business owner and entreprenuer for most of my life.

personal-finance-apps-294x300

I had owned successful businesses, and I had businesses that failed horrible, and lost money… a LOT of money. Trust me, I’ve experienced MORE than my fair share of failures… In fact, I remember that gut wrenching feeling very well.

I will never forget the period where I had stressed sleepless nights over and over again because I was worried about the future of my family. I remember when the bank came over my house and snatched my car because I was unable to pay for it anymore.

I remember how humiliated I was that day. I had to borrow over $10,000 dollars from friends and family just to keep from having my wife, children, and myself kicked out of our house.

Then one day back in April something showed up…

I THINK YOU’VE HEARD OF IT!

Well, remember earlier when I said that my age would come into play?

There is a reason I brought up my age… and that is because I owned many businesses BEFORE this “social revolution” we are all experiencing.

I’m talking about offline businesses that required paying for overhead, materials, inventory, AND some ugly nasty laboring. And I don’t know if you are my age, or older, or younger… or if you have ever experienced what it is like to make money and own your own business before social networks existed… But I have, and because of that, I see the incredible value and unbelievable opportunity that we have right in front of our faces.

The point is, that I have NEVER in my life been a part of a business that makes me THIS much money… ONLY with my mobile phone and instagram account!

That’s the honest truth. Making money by leveraging instagram is freakin’ ridiculous.

And there’s another thing that sets this aside from all of my previous ‘offline’ business ventures. When it comes to making money online with Instagram…

There is literally NO LIMITS to the amount of money…

YOU CAN MAKE WITH Instagram

AND this resource is SO full of money that it doesn’t matter HOW MANY people are pulling money out of it, there will still be way MORE THAN enough to go around.

It’s truly exciting and we are living during one of the best times in all of history. Instagram is worth over 100 billion dollars!

And do you know why Instagram is worth so much? Because of the 100’s of millions of people who use Facebook every single day.

Using what you will learn in ProfitsGram I was able to start earning ridiculous amounts of cash just by using my Mobile phone everywhere I went, so there was no more 8 hours work at the office.

#1 Dog Travel Bag

Top Dog Travel Bag – Airline Approved Travel Set for Dogs Stores All Your Dog Accessories – Includes Travel Bag, 2X Food Storage Containers and 2X Collapsible Dog Bowls – Gray

Review by a satisfied customer

I’m constantly traveling, camping, and staying away from home, so finding an alternative to cramming a dog food bag into a backpack with a couple bowls was imperative. This bag will fit everything you need and more. The material is durable and quality made. The zippers are average quality but are sufficient as long as you’re not stuffing it full, which would be hard to do- I have more than I need in this bag and it closes comfortably. The items I have in mine are: main leash w/ poo bag holder, backup leash, regular harness, service vest, 48oz water bottle, heart worm medication, 2 extra rolls of poo bags, 2 cans wet food, 20oz bag of treat bones, bag of breath bites, bag of pill pockets, tummy meds, whole fish treats, a 12” bully stick, both of the included collapsible bowls and food containers. Each food container holds roughly 3lbs of food for a total of around 6lbs. The collapsible bowls are nice sized and hold about half a container of food if filled to the top. The shoulder strap is sturdy enough to support the weight that the bag can carry and is comfortable on the shoulder. I estimate I have 30lbs of gear packed comfortably inside including the full water bottle. Great price, great quality. Definitely recommended if you’re always on the go with your dog.

Jesus brought joy to the world

The birth of JESUS on Christmas day brought JOY to the world. On that day the angels said to the shepherds working in the fields. “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great JOY that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you; you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:10-12 (NIV)

Merry Christmas
