This is one of the best bonuses you can get with a program like this. In order to monitor your progress, this program also sends you two Apple watches. The Apple Watches will allow you to track your heart rate, exercises, and caloric intake. It also helps your coach monitor your progress.

My Thoughts

I was able to sample a couple of their videos that are available to members of their program. These are two-on-two videos with company founders. They are certified nutrition coaches and success trainers. Together they are very personal and informative. They will help you explore ways to improve your relationship while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The tips they offer are invaluable.

I also did a quick look through their blog and also found a ton of information on better ways to eat as well as learning what foods are good and not good for your overall health. I definitely think this program would work well for couples who are trying to learn how to be healthy in all ways, together. If you are interested in checking them out, start here.

In a previous post, I raved about the Ghostbed pillow. You can check that post out here. Since then, I have been given the opportunity to check out their mattress protector. I have to say that I am very impressed with this brand.

Beautiful Packaging

I am a sucker for any company that takes their time to package their products in an aesthetically pleasing way. Instead of coming like you would find most sheets packaged, this one came uniquely packaged as a square. The package was a sturdy plastic that zippered across the top for easy access to my mattress protector. The great thing about this kind of packaging is that you can easily store your mattress protector without taking up too much space in your closet.

Sturdy Hold

For lack of better words, ‘sturdy hold’ was the first thing to come to mind. I have always used mattress protectors on my mattress because it was not cheap, and I want it to last a long time. This one is a lot different from the ones I have previously used. It has a super thick elastic that holds the protector around the mattress in a much more sturdy manner than a regular elastic. You can see what I mean from the image below.

Perfect Fit

While it is recommended to use this mattress protector on an actual Ghostbed mattress, which is known to be one of the best mattresses for back pain, it will fit on pretty much any mattress. I noticed while putting the protector on my Helix mattress that it fits but could also fit perfectly on pillow top mattresses which are a few inches thicker than my own.

Superior Protection

Since I have a nine-month-old grandbaby, a mattress protector is really important. I never know when he might turn on the sprinklers while I am changing a diaper, and I sure do not want to stain my mattress or end up having any strange smells stuck in it. I also live in the south, which means it is hot. That also means that we sweat in our sleep some nights, and we certainly do not want our mattress to start smelling musty. This protector is cloth on the outside and has a waterproof barrier on the inside. And, according to the website, it also has “Non-migrating antimicrobial technology that helps eliminate allergens.” It is also machine washable, making it easy to care for.

10-Year Warranty

When you order a product you expect to last you a while, you also hope to get some sort of warranty. The great thing about Ghostbed is that they truly stand behind their products. The Ghostbed Protector comes with a Nature’s Sleep LLC 10-Year Limited Warranty. This is one great company to shop with.


Tizzy Says…Rest deeply. Sleep peacefully. Dream Sweetly

So, you have a small business and want to expand your client base. There are plenty of ways to do this, but not too many people think about setting up a booth at a trade show. Here is why you should and some great tips that will help you along the way.

What is a trade show?

According to entrepreneur.com, a trade show is “An exhibition for companies in a specific industry to showcase and demonstrate their new products and services. Generally, trade shows are not open to the public and can only be attended by company representatives and members of the press. Also, an exhibition of businesses offering franchises and/or business opportunity packages for sale.”

How can a trade show help your business?

Setting up a booth at a trade show is a great way to find people that will help you grow your business. A huge percentage of people who attend trade shows are big decision makers for their companies. This is an excellent opportunity to get your brand seen and may be picked up by a big store. Imagine a Walmart representative calling you and wanting your products in their store. The possibilities alone are a great reason why you should set up a booth.

How can I find a trade show in my area?

If you want to find the next trade show in your area, call your local convention facility or your local Chamber of Commerce. Be sure to plan ahead because spots fill up quickly. You will want to find a trade show that is larger and popular because it will bring in more people. More people equals more chances for you to expand your business.

Image Credit: Palm Coast Observer

How do I get noticed at the trade show?

There are a lot of ways to get your booth noticed. You can give away free samples of your product or company swag like keychains with your company log on them. There are not too many people who will pass up free samples. You can also make sure your area is big enough to offer seating as many people get tired from walking around all day. These trade shows can be quite huge. Along with a seating area, a charging station for their phones would be another great way to attract attention. All of these things also give you time to have a conversation with possible buyers and decision makers, so make sure your winning personality is turned full on.

Image Credit: Medium.com

How do I choose what kind of booth I should set up?

Coming up with trade show display ideas can be one of the biggest challenges. There are all kinds of ways you can set up your booth, but one thing you need to remember is that you want to stand out from all of the other businesses displayed there. While you can do things like play music, and offer things like water, seating, charging stations and free samples, the way you use your space can make a huge difference in the number of visitors you will receive.

Now that you have some ideas on how you can set up a successful booth at a trade show, get out there and do it! I wish you all the best of luck!

6 Ways to Encourage Kids to Exercise

According to healthychildren.org, just 1 in 3 kids are physically active every day, and on average, spend over seven hours daily using phones, computers, televisions and other electronic gadgets. With those statistics, it’s really not all that surprising that around one-third of children in the U.S. are either overweight or obese, highlighting the importance of encouraging all kids to get moving.

While that can be easier said that done, using these tricks can make a significant difference in motivating them to exercise.



Avoid Using the Word ‘Exercise’

Avoiding the word “exercise” altogether is usually the best way to go, as they’re probably not going to be interested in taking a jog around the block. Instead, phrase it as a “fun activity,” ideally something that can be enjoyed with family and/or friends like backyard games, jumping rope, tag, tossing a ball around and anything else that gets them moving, an ideally, laughing occasionally too.



Let Your Kids Help Organize a Fitness Schedule

When the kids are involved in making some of the decisions, they’re more likely to be motivated to follow through. Let everyone in the family take turns organizing a fitness schedule each week – keeping things changed up not only prevents boredom but it works more body parts too. You might be surprised at how many fun and creative ideas they come up with.



Hit The Gym

Signing the family up for a gym membership doesn’t have to be expensive, with most communities across the nation hosting a YMCA or something similar. Many offer active pursuits that the kids and the grownups can both look forward to, like swimming, sports leagues and much more.



Motivation Through Competition

Competitions can be a big motivator. Create a contest between yourself and the kids to see who can perform the most jumping jacks, run the fastest, and so on. You may even want to supply everyone with a pedometer or some type of tech device that tracks results like the number of steps taken each day while monitoring progress.



Plan Trips That Include Various Activities

When you’re planning your family vacations, try to come up with options that include a variety of active pursuits, such as snorkeling in a tropical locale, paddling across a lake in a kayak, rowboat or canoe, mountain biking and hiking. The more they experience, the better the odds they’ll find a favorite or two and continue it as they grow and beyond adulthood too.



Be a Good Role Model

If you tend to lie around watching TV all the time, or stay glued to your laptop, etc., your kids are probably going to do the same as they tend to mimic their parents’ habits, both good and bad. If they see you having fun while being physically active regularly, they’re much more likely to follow in your footsteps by being active and staying active throughout their lives.

Love Gardening?
If you are anything like me, you probably love the smell of fresh flowers in the Spring and Summer months. For years I lived in an apartment with no yard, so I had to just grow flowers in some planter boxes at the top of my landing. When we moved to our townhome, I thought I would finally be able to have a real garden. Sadly, the front of our home is totally overgrown with tree roots and a couple of ugly bushes that the landlord will not allow us to remove.

No Backyard
Not only did we not have a way to grow a healthy garden in the front yard because of limited space and the root issue, we had no back yard. All we had was a fenced in patio. The thing is…between our patio slab and the fence was a space about two feet deep and 20 feet long. I wanted a garden so bad that I really had to use my imagination. Not only did I want flowers, but I wanted to grow some vegetables as well.

Whatever It Takes
I decided that I really wanted my back pation to be a place that people would enjoy hanging out on. There is just something about flowers that makes people happy. Since space was limited, I picked up a couple of 6.1″ x 4.5″ x 5.7″ colorful flower pots that hang over the side of my patio fence, on the short side, for a couple of larger flower arrangements. Then I grabbed some smaller colorful pots to go along the longer side of the fence and fitted all of them with flowers.

Planting Veggies
My next step was to plant my veggies. This step took a lot more work. I had to turn up the ground and mix in some soil as well as raise and level out the entire open space between my concrete slab and the fence. It took some work, but we managed to plant several tomato plants, green beans, and sugar snap peas.

Accents and Final Touches
I had some space to play around with, so I picked up some larger flower pots and planted more flowers. After all, you can never have too many flowers, right? We finished off our little bit of paradise with some beautiful, solar-powered lights. We put some along the top of the fence and also some fairy lights around the border of the vegetable garden that we fenced in with a green wire fence.


*Let me apologize for the quality of these photos. This was last year’s garden, so they are old photos that somehow shrunk and had to be resized so that you could see what is going on. Unfortunately, I just did not have time to redo my garden this year.*

Upkeep
A garden like this does not take a whole lot of upkeep. One thing that I learned, though, is that you have to water your vegetable garden from the bottom. I watered mine too much from the top and pretty much killed my vegetables. I only got one good harvest from everything before my leaves started turning yellow and getting holes in them. The issue was not totally my fault, however. We had a wicked amount of rain that killed everything but my flowers after some time.

Learning Something New
I did learn something new. Whether you are a gardener or a farmer, you should know that mycorrhizal fungi is a good thing to have. It is responsible for getting the proper nutrients to your plants and, in turn, your plants will feed this fungi the carbohydrates it needs to thrive. This fungi helps strengthen the root system, so your plant can absorb those nutrients they so desparately need. Pretty cool fact, right? Now, you learned something new.

So, as you can see, you can easily have a beautiful garden even if you have super minimal space. Be sure to comment below and tell me about how you like to garden. What do you like to grown, and how much space do you have to do it?

Thanks for stopping by!

Future Plans

At some point in my life, I want to rent and RV with my husband and travel across the United States. When I was younger, I did some travelling and have been to 26 states, but there are several that I missed along the way. While I have been to Arizona, it was more like a drive through a blizzard in the mountains of Flagstaff at three in the morning. It was terrifying, so I did not get to enjoy it at all. One of the places in Arizona that I really want to visit is Scottsdale. I know it is a place where many go to retire, but I am wanting to go there to see the plethora of natural sites that Scotsdale has to offer.

Image from Reddit

Papago Park

Papago Park is close to downtown and has this amazing “Hole In The Rock” that you see pictured above. According to Phoenix.gov, Papago Park is “Comprised primarily of sandstone, the range is known for its massive buttes that rise and fall throughout the park.” This would be a great spot for us to go on a hike, enjoy the views, and even bring our dogs as long as the weather is not too hot. They actually do not allow dogs on the trails when the temperatures reach 100 degrees.

Camelback Mountain

If you are in the mood for a quick hike, Camelback Mountain is the place to go. The mountain has an elevation of 2,704 feet, making it an excellent place for a hike or a climb. If you are into photography, this area is a great place to take some scenic photos.

Image from Old Town Scottsdale

Big Surf

While we will not be making our trip with any kids, we are still big kids at heart. We would take the 15 minute drive from Scottsdale to Tempe in order to spend a day at Big Surf. Fun Fact: Big Surf was built in 1969, financed by the Clairol Company. It actually was the very first water park in the United States to have a wave pool. How cool is that?

Medical Tourism

You probably have heard of the phrase “medical tourism”. It usually means when a person leaves the country to get surgery done in another country. Many do this to get cheaper cosmetic surgery, but that does not always mean that it is safe. If you want a Tummy Tuck Scottsdale way, you can find some of the best doctors there and know that you are in good hands.

My Bucket List

There are tons of things that I wish I could have done when I was younger, so there are so many other great places that I want to visit on my bucket list. Raising my kids on a tight budget kept us from having family vacations. That is not to say that we did not have some fun, but we never got a chance to travel as a family. I also did not have much in the way of support while raising my kids, so I never got a break. In my 20 years of raising kids, I have spent two nights away from them and those only happened in the last two years.

Empty Nest

Most people say they are not looking forward to having an empty nest, but I really am. Raising my children has been very fulfilling, but I look forward to having time where it is just me and my husband, and travelling together with no one to worry about except each other sounds divine.

Now that you know what is on my bucket list, tell me what is on yours?
