How to Use Castile Soap as Dishwashing Soap and Detergent
#castilesoap   #greencleaning  

How can you work when your toddler wants to hold your left hand while he's watching TV? He's so sweet, but a mom's gotta earn a living and help out dad, in order to maintain a middle-class lifestyle lol  #enigma   #parenting

I think these benefits are based on the nutritional content of guavas.  Anyway, I love them! I like the small ones that get pink inside when ripe and the large ones that are not as sweet as the smaller ones but crunchy and juicy :) I dip these large ones on spicy vinegar first and then sea salt. <3

Every choice fits some situations perfectly, including giving up and giving in, such as giving up work that you don't enjoy or giving in to spoiling yourself a little for a change :)

Hillier Lake, Western Australia...
The pink and lovely Hiller Lake is the only vividly pink lake you will find in the world. The color is permanent and never changes, even when water is removed and placed in a separate container. Its startling color remains a mystery and while scientists have proven it’s not due to the presence of algae, unlike the other salt lakes down under, they still can’t explain why it’s pink...

I am... Spartaaaaaacus! :) 
Spartacus Workout
Gladiators were renown for great abs and explosive leg work and this workout is here to help you shape your abs and get some real power to your lower limbs. 

Instructions: Repeat each move with no rest in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again 3, 5 or 7 times depending on your fitness level. 

What it works: lateral abs, core, glutes, shoulders, triceps, chest, quads, front hip flexors. 

Tips: Perform jumping lunges, landing on the ball of the foot each time to absorb the shock and push off in one smooth motion. 

Make it better: When performing deep side lunges keep your feet flat on the floor, do not come up on the ball of the foot. This increases the load on your adductors (the inner thigh tendons) and side hip flexors. Better still, when transferring your body weight from one leg to the other resist the temptation to push upwards. This uses your quads and releases the pressure from your adductors and side hip flexors as your body rises up. Instead transfer your body weight from side to side keeping your head at the same level at all times. This forces the quads to stretch a little too and increases the benefits of the exercise. .

Make it harder:  Speed it up. Perform everything apart from the plank exercises at your top speed without breaking form. This forces your muscles to work through a routine, helps establish the necessary muscle memory and builds up some short-twitch muscle fibre.  

Body types this can work for: Like every workout we put together this is for everyone. Having said that if you're Naturally skinny (Ectomorph) will find that it helps you get stronger and put on some muscle. If you're naturally muscled (Mesomorph) will find that it helps you get faster and a little more flexible. If you're on the heavy side (Endomorph) you will find that you gain both speed and agility from it.   

Perfect for: Anyone looking to make a name for themselves using a gladius in the Colosseum. Plus, if you're looking for a workout that helps you strengthen your core and build up some nice power in your muscles then this is it.

I realized that I frequently use #s 7, 8, and 10 :)  This works more for older kids though. For my toddler, I wait out the tantrums, and when he's ready, I hug and kiss him and tell him everything's going to be okay. Thanks +Meg Sanity
