Nintendo DSI for your little one!

Alright, I have never been so happy to have something as I am with the Nintendo DSI for my son.  He is 5 and takes very good care of his toys.  He loves this thing.  It is definitely kid friendly and easy to use.  How many trips have you been on and the kids are driving you completely insane?  This is the cure all!  My son stays entertained for hours.  


He got his DSI for his birthday.  I bought two games for it and his favorite is Mario vs Donkey Kong Mini Land Mayhem!  I got him the Cars 2 game as well.  My family has always been big fans of I Spy so that is the next game I am going to get for him.

You can actually take pictures on it as well.  He loves to take pictures.  Shortly after he got it we had a huge rain storm and afterwards, a rainbow.  I cannot even tell you how many pictures he took of the rainbow.  I would recommend this for anyone who has young children!

biPro 100% Natual Whey Protein Review

biPro USA is a company that sells protein products. They sell biPro Sculpt, an all natural unflavored whey protein isolate and bioZZZ, an all natural sleep supplement. 

I received the biPro Sculpt.  biPro Sculpt is an unflavored whey protein that can be added to water, milk, sports drinks, or your favorite juice.  biPro Sculpt is fat free, sugar free, lactose free, and contains 0 carbs.  biPro Sculpt serves many health benefits including weight managment, cardiovascular health, and builds muscle mass.

As mentioned previously, biPro Sculpt is unflavored.  I mixed mine with milk.  I honestly didn't notice a change in the taste of the milk.  This could be good for some and bad for others.  I dont drink a lot of milk because I dont typically like the taste.  In my opinion, if you like milk or water, drink it that way being as it doesn't change the taste.  However, if you're like me, you might like it better in your favorite juice.

I used my Blender Bottle to mix my biPro drink.  The best thing about biPro is that it isn't gritty.  I have had some protein supplements that even when mixed with a Blender Bottle had an unpleasant, gritty texture.  I prefer not to have the feeling of grains of sand in my mouth. 

I also noticed that this mixed really well into a smooth texture.  There were no chunks of unmixed powder.  I look at this as a plus because i dont have to swallow any clumps.

I drank my shake in the morning which helped me feel more full throughout the day.  I didn't do my normal all day long snacking.  At dinner time, I believe I was able to stick to actual serving sizes.  I didn't notice any change in muscle mass but then again I was looking at weight management and nutritional properties of biPro. 

I like biPro Sculpt and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great way to get that needed protein.  I love the fact that this blends smoothly and I also love that it comes unflavored so you can mix it with your favorite drink.  I also think that being as it is unflavored it's great for those of you who do not like sweet drinks.

ATI Testing...

ITS FRIDAY!  I have a ton of studying to do, finals next week, starting to worry.  I promise one day I will be blowing this blog up!  For anyone that has been through nursing school you know the pressure I am under right now with the ATI.  I wonder how many of us will make it to the next semester and how many of us will get a 6 month vacation from school.  I guess if I have to take 6 months off of school, there is no better time than the summer.  All i can do is study and pray!

Importance of proteins in your diet for you and your family

Alright people, its pool time!  Who doesnt want to stay healthy and fit especially in the summer?  Im a very busy with life but I feel there is something missing.  My brain is active but physically my body needs some work.  Sometimes I feel I just dont have the energy to keep going.  There are essential nutrients the body needs to provide fuel or energy such as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.  I dont always eat right so I started taking vitamins to get some of these essential nutrients.  

You may or may not know this but proteins are the building blocks of life.  Your body needs protein to repair and maintain itself.   Proteins may be complete or incomplete.  Complete proteins have all 8 essential amino acids which are the ones your body does not manufacture so it is important to eat foods such as meats, poultry, fish, dairy products, and eggs to get these.  Incomplete proteins lack one or more of the essential amino acids and are usually derived from vegetables.  I have started drinking protein shakes and eating protein bars.  These are actually really good!  It doesnt matter if it is a premade shake or a powder that you mix yourself these things taste great!  You can get these in many different flavors and they even have drinks that are lactose or gluten free. 

I hope youll be sure to include protein in your familys diet!
