The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle 2014

Today marks 20 weeks for baby #4!  

I am officially half way, which means I am probably a little a little more since I have never made it to my due date ;)  

Getting my family on a good schedule and health regimen is a top priority right now, especially with talk of the winter that may be ahead of us, regular cold and flu season on top of this terrible respiratory virus that is spreading from the mid-west.  

This ebook bundle could not be coming at a better time!

We all want to make better health and lifestyle decisions for ourselves and those we love. 

We want to lose some weight, have more energy, use greener products, create nutritious meals for our families, get fit, and feel confident that we’re doing all we can to prevent serious diseases.

But it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed and intimidated by the masses of healthy living advice out there – to the point where we’re frozen into complete inaction instead!

That’s where The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle comes in. 

For the ridiculously low price of just $29.97 (for the PDF version) or $39.97 (for the eReader version), you can get access to a carefully curated collection of eBooks and eCourses with a total combined value of $1,030.

The bundle contains a wealth of information from the very finest healthy living writers out there – but there’s no risk of getting overwhelmed!

Guest Bloggers Wanted!

Worthington Lower is officially accepting Guest Bloggers.

I am even requesting them.

Life has gotten crazy.  Not doubt, I'm not the only one who feels that way, but the blog is suffering and I don't see baby #4 making it easier.

The opportunities that have come from blogging have been a huge blessing, but it also adds to the work load and I don't see how I can do it all.  Can anyone really do it all?

I am looking for bloggers who want to get their foot in the door or freelance writers looking to build their portfolio.  These are not paid opportunities, but I am opening my little store front to you and I will be blasting your work via social media.  

What kind of content am I looking for?

  • Vegetarian Recipes
  • Family Friendly
  • Tech Related
  • Healthy/Nutrition
  • Kids/ Mom posts
  • Crafts and DIY

Or, propose something!

  • I'm not against talking about a product that you are selling as long as the post is useful content as a stand alone.   
  • You  may use affiliate links as long as you disclose them.  
  • Reviews are welcome as well.

Please contact me via email to chat about possibilities JWorthingtonLower[at]Gmail[dot]com

I look forward to hearing from you!

19 Weeks

Yesterday was the 19 week marker for this pregnancy and I am pretty happy with how things are going.  Considering the stress of all things going on and this being #4, I feel pretty good.

I have only gained 4-6 Ibs which is phenomenal for me!  I really hope I can keep this pace up because I started over-weight and with each pregnancy I have ended at a higher weight than the previous.  At this rate I have a chance at staying within range of my first pregnancy.

My pain/discomfort level increases as the day wares on, but overall it's not that bad.  I am still sleeping with a toddler in my bed and able to sleep in cramped positions without my pillow (if you sleep with a child in your bed, you may know what I mean).

We just got bunk beds for my 2 older children and they are officially sharing a room.  Last night was the first night that they slept in their new beds and I really hope it was just the excitement of the new situation.  It was a late night and an early morning this morning.  They were organizing and fighting and bugging each other for a solid hour after bed time.

The 5:15 wake up was not welcome (never is...) after being awake from 1am-3am with a sick 18 month old.  Poor little guy has an ear infection and Coxsackie (Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease).

This is also the first week of school for my daughter.  She is officially a bus riding 1st grader and she is super excited!

Can you tell it's been busy around here?  Do you blame me for not getting my blog posts in order this week?  I hope not.

On top of all of this, my husband was stung by a King Bee and ended up with a terrible infection. Two super antibiotics and tons of probiotics later he still feeling wiped out and sick, but the infection is retreating and the swelling has gone down.  I wish I had gotten a picture to show you of the initial sting and the infection when he woke up the next morning - really terrible.

So, next week is the big 20 and we will hopefully find out what we are having!

Back to School: Packing Lunches

School starts here on Tuesday and I am dreading packing lunches again.

I have a hard enough time making actual food for myself and dinner for everyone.

I wrote a post that is like my cheat sheet when I feel defeated.  Just a list of what my kids will eat and what I should have on hand each week.

Having it in writing always makes me feel less overwhelmed.  My list only includes one sandwich option for when my daughter is in the mood, so I strive for more creative choices.  There are also some make-ahead and breakfast in a pinch ideas!

You can find it over on Local Girl :)

17 Weeks, 1 Day

I am a day late on this post because I should have done it yesterday, but things happen, so here is my 17 week post :)

I don't have a picture yet, I hope to get one done at some point today and I will post it when that happens, sorry!

I woke up yesterday feeling good.  I am now 3 days without my miracle Morning Sickness Cocktail.  I don't like taking anything I don't have to during pregnancy and I had been feeling pretty good so I decided it was time to see how I really feel without medicine.  Thank goodness I am feeling sooo much better!  Still waves of nausea here and there.  My appetite is completely at the whim of my hormones.  I can't plan anything to eat for myself because I will only know if I can stomach the idea of a certain food at the site or smell of it. But I'll take it over feeling like death 24/7.  It has also kept my weight in check.

Week 17 the baby is about he size of a turnip according to

I am not a small girl to begin with.  Even in my 20's when I was tied to the gym 2 hours a day I was muscular and never skinny.  Pregnancy is not kind in regard to my weight and getting it off is pretty tough afterwards. Every time, I tell myself that I am going to be very careful about what I eat and only gain the minimum, but this is the first time that looks like a possibility.  Having 3 other kids to chase after helps too ;)

Like I said, I woke up feeling good, but I did something really stupid early in the morning.  We traded in my minivan for a new one and I owed the dealership a seat that we had removed.  Instead of asking for help, I carried the stupid thing in myself and it was way heavier than I anticipated...

I am not supposed to lift things or be on my feet much at all so I can say I am an idiot and it is true.

Afterwards my belly was rock hard and my back felt battered.  I felt like I fast forwarded through 2-3 months of pregnancy.  I was waddling and chair ridden most of the day.  When I went to bed I had the awful acid reflux I said last week wasn't apparent yet and I had really bad dreams.   I feel ok this morning, but we'll see how the day goes.

I might just have been a coincidence because supposedly baby goes through a growth spurt weeks 16-17 or maybe I was just not smart.  Time will tell.

A Few Good Things

I don't always like posts that tell you to travel all over the internet to find content, but I have a few things that I have written or collected recently and I think they are worth sharing, but without the redundancy of re- posting here. It's also not good for the content even though it seems counter intuitive. So...

August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month, so I shared a little about that, plus I wrote a whole breastfeeding series on my experiences and what worked for me here on WL.

And today is the first day that I am free from both nausea AND my miracle cocktail.

Plus, my 6 Tips for Selling on eBay!  This is what sparked my series on streams of income (that I will conclude soon...)

Also, I have been collecting some really good stuff on Pinterest for Back to School
