-- By Liza Barnes, Health Educator So you've been cleared for exercise after the birth of your baby and you're anxious to get outside and get moving! But who's going to watch your little one? If running or walking is your thing, you can take baby along in a jogging stroller. You get the exercise you crave, and baby gets a scenic tour of the neighborhood, with some fresh air to boot.
I got the call on Sunday, November 25th. My favorite aunt who is in her early 70s was rushed to the hospital with pneumonia and was on a ventilator in the ICU. Her vitals weren’t stable and a blood culture showed that the infection had overwhelmed her bloodstream and she was now septic.

But it doesn't have to be!
Exercise doesn't have to mean a trip to the gym or an hour long session.
Has anyone else heard about spiking food nutrients by using a blender? How is that possible? Do I want the nutrients in the blender or in my body for optimum performance?I will continue chewing my food to keep all the nutrients as fuel for my daily activities.
