January 2018 is almost in the books! Did you meet your fitness goals this month? At Motherstucker Headquarters, there is always room for improvement. Join me & let’s finish out this month stronger together!
My 3 biggest fitness accomplishments this month:
- Bi-Weekly Kickboxing Workouts!
- Daily walks for the new puppy (& myself)!
- Staying hydrated!
Those achievements were accomplished thanks to what you see in my “Fit Mom Gym Tote” (headphones, gym lock, boxing gloves, & BODYARMOR) plus some things you don’t see – DETERMINATION, PERSEVERANCE, & DEDICATION.
Every Kickboxing class is a wake-up call with 30 minutes of intense cardio, followed by resistance training. This super fat-burning-muscle-sculpting-workout leaves me feeling energized & sweaty.
Speaking of energized, Bridgette (4 month old Irish Wolfhound puppy) loves her daily 1 mile walks. This month we’ve walked in temperatures from mild to frigid. As the walks get longer & the weather gets warmer, I’m thrilled to have found BODYARMOR SuperDrink! My favorite is BODYARMOR LYTE! This premium sports drink (that provides superior hydration) is packed with electrolytes, coconut water & vitamins & low in sodium & high in potassium. I appreciate that it is naturally sweetened at only 20/cal per serving 😉
- BODYARMOR contains natural flavors & sweeteners & no colors from artificial sources.
- In 2013, Kobe Bryant joined the BODYARMOR team as the number three shareholder in the company.
- In 2017, BODYARMOR launched two new products: BODYARMOR LYTE & BODYARMOR Water.
- BODYARMOR LYTE has all the same nutrients as BODYARMOR.
- BODYARMOR water is a premium sport water designed by athletes, for athletes.
- BODYARMOR is the brand of choice for athletes & has assembled an impressive team of young, superstar athletes such as James Harden, Mike Trout, Dustin Johnson, Andrew Luck, Richard Sherman, Dez Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Buster Posey, Skylar Diggins, etc. Don’t take my word for it – Search #Switch2BodyArmor on Instagram & Twitter to see for yourself!

See you at the top,
In the process of taking care of our hands and face we often forget to give enough attention to the way our legs and feet look. It is therefore very important to maintain your lower limbs and take all necessary steps to keep them looking beautiful and healthy at all times. Given below are some easy but essential tips that will help you maintain your legs and bring them close to looking perfect.
- Don’t hurt your legs
Would you like to have scar and cut marks on your face or other exposed parts of your body? In all probability you will reply with an emphatic no. Similarly, it is vital to ensure that you take good care of your legs and feet and stop them from being grazed against rough surfaces or invite accidents that could leave ugly marks on the skin. In case you already have a few tell-tale marks or scars then it is recommended that you take all possible steps to have them removed at the earliest to help show off a perfect set of legs.
Fat tends to accumulate in the calves and thighs thereby making them look disproportionate and out of shape. Firstly, it is very essential to get rid of this extra flab through regular walking, workout and fat burning programs that include a good and healthy diet. Post that, you need to get in touch with an experienced trainer to understand the different moves that can help you get shapely, tight and well-toned legs on the double. As per your lifestyle, stamina and work schedules, you may want to go for bike riding, jogging, walking, jumping rope or trampoline, aerobics, squats, lunges, swimming, climbing stairs, training by weights, etc. The trainers at Element Fitness explains how to get perfect legs with the right kinds of moves and exercises, do ask for a session to get the best results at the earliest.
It is quite easy to get your legs tanned the wrong way in tropical countries, therefore it is crucial to invest in a good sunscreen formula to take good care of your legs and make them look appealing and attractive. On the other hand, people who are very fair may need to go for artificial tanning modes to make their legs look the way they want them too.
- Hair Removal
Legs with hair are a complete no in case of women. Be it laser hair removal, waxing, or shaving, it is a good idea to choose a hair removal technique that is less time consuming, comfortable and easy to perform on a regular basis.
Leg makeup, pedicures, eating healthy and right, etc. are some of the important things to do for getting perfect legs. In short, you may have to go an extra mile to make your legs shapely, as well as flaunt healthy and clean skin. Get toned at the earliest – your legs also deserve to look good!

What do you love most about your favorite commercial bar of soap? Is it the bubbly synthetic lathering agents? The “squeaky clean” feel of detergents? Or maybe you thrill to the skin drying hardener that makes for a long lasting bar.
If you are thinking that doesn’t sound like what I look for in a soap, then be sure that you ARE using soap. Take a look at the label. Don’t see the word soap? Then you are most likely using a detergent & that can mean an extremely drying, synthetic, chemical clean. Handcrafted soaps are a better, natural, gentle way to clean your delicate skin.
You can feel the amazing difference between commercial bars & glycerin rich handcrafted soaps. Pectolite, LLC is the home of Simply Natural Bath & Body Products, which includes a line of handcrafted artisan soaps. Their unique formulations ensure that the skin loving oils that go into making their soaps is exactly what your skin gets out of each creamy, lathery, ever so emollient bar. Want softer, happier, more nourished skin naturally? Then give real soap a try. From the super sensitive to the seriously sensuous, Pectolite has handcrafted soap bars for all skin types, including those allergic to coconut, palm & olive oil. http://www.pectolite.net

Gluten free, protein-packed, high in fiber – not necessarily the first terms that come to mind when sitting down with a big bowl of pasta! Today’s options go far beyond wheat or white, with trending brands like Explore Cuisine offering pastas made from organic beans, lentils, & peas, loaded with plant-based protein, iron, & fiber.
For those looking to celebrate, Motherstucker wants to share a few #NationalPastaMonth recipes: Simple Spaghetti for beginner chefs & Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccine in a Light Pesto Sauce for those who like mix things up in the kitchen.
♦ Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccine in a Light Pesto Sauce
7 oz. Explore Cuisine Edamame and Mung Bean Fettuccine – cooked & drained
2 large yellow squashes, peeled into ribbons with a peeler
3.5 oz. pecans – peeled & halved
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
3 oz. pine nuts
LIGHT PESTO SAUCE
1 large bunch of fresh basil
2 cloves garlic
2 oz. olive oil
2 tbsp pine nuts
1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
Peel skin from garlic cloves, & chop into big chunks. Using a food processor, pulse basil, garlic, & nuts several times until finely chopped. Add the salt & olive oil, pulse until blended. Pesto may be thick, so add more olive oil for a looser consistency. Lightly toast the pecans, pomegranate seeds & pine nuts in skillet. Mix the fettuccine with the sauce, gently fold in the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
♦ Simple Vegan Chickpea Spaghetti
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (optional)
1 cup organic pasta sauce
Cook the spaghetti until soft according to the packet directions. Drain the water from the pasta, & stir in the pasta sauce. Add more if you like more sauce. Serve in bowls & then sprinkle the nutritional yeast on each one. Season with salt & extra nutritional yeast if desired.
If you’ve got kids, you’ve got snacks. The two just seem to go hand in hand! As parents ourselves, we’re always looking for ways to bust boredom with the snacks we serve, whether at home or heading to an after-school activity. So for all you soccer moms, scout dads or other parents on snack duty, let’s shake things up and bring back the fun to snack time!
Focus on Fruit
Packed with goodness and great taste, fruit is a no-brainer snack choice for kids. Plus, it’s a naturally gluten-free and nut-free option for kids with sensitivities. While some little ones will gladly devour all types of whole fruit, others need a little more coaxing. Try these ideas:
- Slice it Up: We’re not sure why, but kids tend to like fruit better when it’s washed, cut, and ready to go. So slice those apples to amp up their appeal!
- Set it Up: Out of sight, out of mind, right? Rather than keep bananas and oranges tucked away, display them in a bowl on your kitchen counter for an easy-grab solution.
- Kebab it Up: Pro-tip: Everything is more kid-friendly on a stick—perhaps because it resembles a magic wand? Add strawberries, grapes, melon and other bite-sized fruit to a skewer, alternating as you go.
- Mix it Up: Offer fruit in a variety of forms and textures, from freeze-dried to canned to smoothies and beyond.
Don’t tell your kids, but snack time can be a great time to incorporate veggies—especially if you do it in an artful way! A few of our faves:
- Ants on a Log: Fill a celery stick with natural peanut butter, then sprinkle with raisins.
- Bell Pepper Rainbow: Cut half-moon strips out of red, orange, yellow and green organic bell peppers. Arrange in a rainbow shape and add a piece of raw cauliflower on either end to mimic clouds.
- Cucumber Sandwich: Use two round cucumber slices as your “bread” and fill with a yummy spread, such as hummus or cream cheese.
- Kale Chips: Spread organic kale leaves in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until browned, about 10-15 minutes. Let kids help by sprinkling on salt, pepper and/or parmesan cheese when done.
Grab and Go
We like to get all Pinterest-y just like any other parent, but sometimes it’s all about quick and portable. These packaged snack options are great for car rides, field trips, lunch boxes, sports practice or any other time you need to head out the door in seconds flat. It all depends on which flavor your kids are feeling!
- Salty: Popcorn, pretzels, veggie straws, mixed nuts
- Sweet: Animal crackers, oatmeal cookies, graham crackers, individual cereal boxes
- Bars: Granola bars, protein bars, cereal bars, etc.
- Other Popular Picks: Raisins, string cheese, yogurt tubes, Go Organically gluten free fruit snacks
Is it snack time yet? We’re hungry! Don’t forget to follow Go Organically on Facebook for more meal and snack ideas. 😉
Disclosure: I have been compensated for this post with Combat sample product &/or payment. As always, all opinions expressed here are my own & not influenced in any way.
10 years ago this month, my grandmother organized an autumn getaway for all the women in my family to Edisto Island, South Carolina. Meemaw, Aunt Lori, Cousin Mackenzie, my daughter Cady & I with bulldog Oedamae traveled from Kentucky to the beach house rental. We arrived at dusk, chose our rooms in the beach house & began to unpack. I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter at the time & soon after I began unpacking, I needed to sit down on the bed to take a rest. My bedroom walls were natural wood paneled with large dark knots. Pictures of sailboats hung on the wood walls. It was seaside shabby chic – quaint and very different than what I was accustomed to in Kentucky. As my gaze moved from ship picture to ship picture, I noticed one of the wood knots MOVING. I focused. I freaked! There was a huge roach scurrying up the wall!
I grabbed my daughter, bolted from the bedroom & immediately called the beach house rental company. After explaining my unwanted roach roommate situation, the rental company employee LAUGHED. I failed to see the funny and asked if a service person could come bug treat our rental A.S.A.P. When the rental company employee quit giggling, she explained to me very sweetly & sincerely, “Honey, that’s not a roach. We don’t have roaches in South Carolina. That’s a Palmetto Bug. There is nothing to worry about.”
Fast forward 10 years, I now LIVE in South Carolina. While Spring, Summer, & Fall all feel like summer this far south – cool weather will be here eventually & NOW is the perfect time to protect my home from ants, roaches, Palmetto bugs, whatever. I found Combat Max – Ant & Roach Killing Foam Spray that comes in a 17.5oz ready to use aerosol can. This Quick Kill spray (kills ants & roaches on contact) dries invisible and leaves a protective force-field. Combat Foam expands into cracks and crevices where insects hide. Regular aerosol sprays can’t do that. Within minutes the foam disappears leaving no residues after treatment at Motherstucker headquarters.
Celebrate with The Little Kernel “Miniature Popcorn” – Motherstucker’s FAV & one of the market’s smallest (& tastiest!) popcorn brands. With a unique, hulless, “miniature kernel,” The Little Kernel is popped in 100% PURE olive oil, & is gluten-free, non-GMO, dairy-free, kosher, & certified whole grain.
Even better, TLK is available in six delicious flavors, including: Truffle Sea Salt, Sweet & Salty, Pink Himalayan Salt, White Cheddar, Butter & Naked (No Salt Added) (SRP: $3.49 each).
Wash this DELICIOUS snack down with refreshing AquaBall! The only zero-calorie, sugar-free & preservative-free children’s beverage currently on the market. The naturally flavored water is available in four fruity flavors (Berry Frost, Fruit Punch, Grape & Strawberry Lemonade) & features fan favorite characters from Disney’s “Frozen”, Disney Princesses, Marvel’s “Avengers,” & Disney Classic Characters. Parents can feel good about this choice as AquaBall is also a great source of Vitamins B3, B5, B6, & C & is naturally flavored (no artificial flavors or colors). ENJOY 😉
Unroll the fun with the NEW Welch’s® Fruit Rolls. Featuring fruit as their first ingredient, these snacks come in 3 mouthwatering flavors: Berry, Tropical Punch, & White Grape Strawberry. Welch’s® Fruit Rolls contain 100% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C & are an excellent source of Vitamins A & E. Gluten free! Preservative free! Welch’s® Fruit Rolls are loved by kids & approved by MOMS! Available in select grocery stores nationwide <3
October is National Book Month! Celebrate all month with, “This Land is My Land” a children’s book written by Dubie Toa-Kwapong & illustrated by Samuel Fleming. In the summer of 2017, Nana Adom Mills-Robertson, a senior at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, came up with the idea of creating a children’s book. This book aims to build empathy for more than 2 million children in the USA. Adom approached Dubie Toa-Kwapong, an award-winning writer & Macalester graduate ‘16, with the idea. Dubie agreed with it & created This Land is My Land. However, it was not complete. Samuel Fleming, a junior at Macalester, who doubled as a prominent up-and-coming artist in the Twin Cities, brought life to the characters through art. The reading level of this book is aimed for grade’s 1-3. However, everyone can enjoy the book – Join Motherstucker & BACK this Kickstarter to get YOURS “This Land is My Land” March ’18! #wearewithamina #nationalbookmonth
