Monday Cleaning Day
Usual activities such as your cleaning day are easy to put on the back burner for a few days because motivation to “clean” is simply not there. Cleaning is down on most people’s “Not Fun!” list, including myself. Motivating yourself to tackle house cleaning with broom in one hand and dustpan in the other is one thing but getting everyone else to pitch in and help is another! For about two weeks now, I have witnessed a very strange yet miraculous occurrence: my toddler actually wants to help me clean house. At first, I was a little slow to catch on to what was happening because I’m so used to nagging everyone to help me out. So, as I said before- for two weeks, during my usual Monday cleaning day my toddler had fought me tooth and nail as we tug – o – war for the broom, mop, or whatever other cleaning appliance I had in my hand. My little Ryu would follow me around the house watching me clean and fight me for cleaning appliances! It finally dawned on me that maybe Ryu should have some cleaning appliances of his own.
So on the following Monday cleaning day I took Ryu down to Toys R Us and got him this nifty little cleaning trolley set which included: a mobile vacuum cleaner, exchangeable nozzles for the vacuum, a broom, a dustpan, a mop, a spray gun, and a place for trash. After buying this toy for him, I thought to myself that whoever invented this toy was simply genius!! This toy was perfect because as I swept the floors so would Ryu and when I would vacuum so would he. Not only is this toy a much safer version of cleaning house but I think that it is a great way to teach my little Ryu to get in the routine of taking care of his things. It is such an awesome feeling to see how proud he is because he has some responsibility and a sense of “I did it Mommy!”
And so, this is why my usual Monday cleaning day has changed from waking up in the morning and being bummed that I have to clean house to a feeling of -Yeah I have a little helper – my partner in cleaning crime!!

Spooky Healthy Halloween Treat
At preschool yesterday we decorated Halloween cupcakes and I thought to myself that every holiday people just pack down tons of sugar! So, I wanted to blog today about a recipe for a healthy version of Halloween treats that kids will love and parents will love too. This Halloween treat is a fast, simple, cheap, and tasty treat!
The following recipe calls for the following:
1. Your favorite Halloween cookie cutters
2. Any three melons you choose
4. Your choice flavored yogurt as a dip
To begin, use a potato peeler to skin the melons. Next cut the melons into round slices so you can cut into them with the cookie cutters. Unlike the melons though, the pineapple needs to have its skin cut and its top chopped off. Just like the melons, cut the pineapple into round slices. After each of the melons and the pineapple is cut into round slices you can begin to cut out the Halloween shapes. Save the extra fruit for later. After all of the Halloween shapes have been cut out put them on a seperate place and place them into the freezer for about 20 minutes. All most done… Take the excess fruit and chop them into bite sized pieces. Place all of these bite sized pieces into your serving bowl. Place your flavored yogurt into a seperate small sizezd serving bowl. Take out your frozen Halloween shaped fruit and place them on top of the bite sized fruit pieces. Last top it with as many blueberries as you choose. Enjoy!
Here’s My Hot Mommy!
My name is Adriana Posadas and I am an Orange county mommy whose blogging is, of course, inspired by my beautiful son Ryu who is 20 months now. I have always been into fitness; in fact, my husband and I are so passionate about health that we decided to open up a gym in the OC and help families here lead healthier lifestyles! My family and I enjoy everything from martial arts to weight lifting, running, swimming, rock climbing…. I was even a contestant on NBC’s, American Gladiators!
After the birth of my son, I experienced something I had NEVER experienced in my life. I was overweight and I had to face the facts and make a healthy change. I figured if I was going to get back in shape my little guy would be the inspiration I needed to do it! Every day my son and I spend quality time together doing some kind of exercise and we have a great time doing it! Because of this, I get so many shocked mommies at the park asking me how old my son is and that they can’t believe the coordination and strength he has. The idea light didn’t go on though until my son Ryu and I joined a mommy and me preschool class and there were other toddlers his age there. I saw other 20 month olds struggle to do what he did in a breeze- Ryu was jumping, climbing, running, throwing balls into the basket, and even doing a wheel barrel maneuver! This is why I decided to begin my blog. I wanted to share my story and my passions with other mommies and discover and share with them ways to make being healthy fun. If my mommies get
“H-O-T” in the process, then so be it!

2011 Will be Your Best Year Yet!
Another year and another New Year’s Resolution! Towards the end of 2010, I found myself alongside the other New Year’s Resolution sheep asking what I had accomplished and was I happy with what was accomplished. Yes I had accomplished many of the goals I had set out to reach at the beginning of 2010 such as shedding my baby weight, getting my son on a routine, getting myself on a routine….among others; but what was in store for me for 2011?In order to find an answer to that question, I found myself asking more questions. One of the biggest questions was, why make a New Year’s Resolution to begin with.
Well, imagine yourself wandering through life without any real objective or thought about being a constructive being. To me, that’s a pretty sad existence! So I found the answer to that «big» question. I make my New Year’s Resolution each year not because everyone else does it but because it helps me get on track mentally for my long term goals such as how do I want to live the rest of the life I’m blessed with, how do I want my relationship to be like with my husband, what do I want for my son…
I guess what I’ve found to help me achieve my goals during each and every year is to make large goals and work back and make smaller goals. In other words, imagine a long rope bridge where you have to walk each and every step to get to the other side of the rope bridge. If you make smaller goals and reach those smaller goals then it’s much more likely that you achieve your original long term goal because it won’t seem as overwhelming.
Here is a step by step guide on how I achieve my goals:
1. Have a paper and pen handy
2. Write down a list of all of your long term goals (make sure they are realistic!)
3. Focus on one long term goal that you would like to achieve.
4. Think about this long term goal and envision a rope ladder with all the small steps needed to cross this rope ladder. Write down everything that comes to mind in order to reach this long term goal.
4. Create realistic deadlines, or how long it will take to reach the short term goal, for each of these short term goals so that you will be held accountable for reaching the long term goal.
Vwala, you are on your way to making 2011 your best year yet! Taking these steps even further, you can re-evaluate your long term goal every month and track where you’re at. Make sure you reward yourself for short term goals that were achieved. Happy New Years to all and happy goal setting!
