Your Bladder Matters to Cystex....Are You Kegeling??

I've discussed many times in the past the stage of my unhappy bladder. If I don't treat it just right it certainly will let me know about it. In the past I have brought you a review from a brand I have grown to trust and love, Cystex. For those of you not familiar with my story and beginnings with Cystex you can read it HERE. Cystex Cranberry Urinary Health Complex can help promote better bladder health.  It is a sugar-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free daily supplement that not only tastes great and boosts urinary tract health.  The unique Proantinox® cranberry formula can help to end the cycle of infection for those who are prone to recurrent urinary tract infections. Or like me are just faced with constant pain.
Recently Cystex has started a campaign to help promote all over bladder health. It’s easy to get a stronger, better bladder with daily Kegel exercises that can be done while you’re doing just about anything else and no one knows you’re doing them– so there’s no excuse. Cystex came up with this adorable little video to help educate people around the world on the path the better bladder health. Please take just a few minutes and watch it :)
.......Did you watch it?? Good :) Now Kegeling is luckily something my mother had talked to me about since I was a teenager. I have to admit though I am not nearly as good about it as I should be.
Kegeling can be done by squeezing and holding your pelvic floor muscles up and in. I promise this is not nearly as difficult as it sounds....stop right now and give it a try!  Most healthcare professionals suggest Kegeling regularly for ten seconds three times a day, to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles in a pre-emptive defense of many bladder issues. You have 30 seconds in your day right?? If you knew it could save you from years of bladder issues in the future would you make 30 seconds?? Still not convinced you should Kegel?
Cystex wants to help spread the word Cystex wants to offer one of my lucky readers this cute Kegeling t-shirt. In order to enter all I need to know is where do you Kegel??*This giveaway will run through September 28th so don't miss your chance to win. And keep on Kegeling!*

This is one of those areas that not a lot of people talk about. Glad you got taught about it early. I would say the same as the person above, car, couch, running, pretty much anywhere I think about it.
This came at a perfect time a my daughter is battling UTI as we speak. I think I will mention this to her and I never thought much about cranberry and how it help fight them. Thanks for the wealth of information.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
