Mumpreneurs-how to make it work!

Mumpreneurs – how to make it work! There are many different types of mums out there. We all have our own style, expectations and quirky ways of doing things. And we all have different responsibilities, jobs and commitments.
Many mums have been enterprising enough to start their own business or have created entrepreneurial partnerships with others that have enabled them to build their own successful business. These women have definitely done a great job. They are go-getters, driven and motivated not only by the financial  rewards, but are often following their dreams and have a real passion for their business. This is admirable and inspirational.
But they have not done this lightly, and in most cases, the path to success has been rocky, rather than smooth. It takes a lot of dedication, devotion and sacrifice to make a business a success, and, as a mumpreneur, there are some unique challenges that can arise along the way to the achievement of lofty business goals.  Striking a true balance between business and home life is one many have a problem with. But do not despair. If you are finding it hard then here are a few tips to follow to make it a bit easier for you.
1. Be flexible
If you are very rigid in your time management and scheduling, you may find that things work brilliantly – until the unexpected happens. Then all is thrown into disarray. We all tend to underestimate how long it takes us to do something. So, rather than completely fill your day with everything that needs to be done, instead, try to spread things out so you are not overloaded. So, deliberately “under-schedule”. This will allow you some wiggle-room, just in case you are suddenly faced with a sick child or one who decides that she doesn’t really feel like napping today, even though today is the deadline for your big project!

What Are Some of the Risks of Pregnancy After 35?



There are both risks of pregnancy after 35 and benefits of postponing motherhood to this age. Women often get perturbed when doctors refer to pregnancy over 35 years of age as advanced maternal age. Rather than getting perturbed women should attempt to understand the underlying risks of conceiving late. Needless to say doctors are the best to judge a woman’s physical health and monitor pregnancy to prevent and treat complications.

What are some of the problems and risks associated with pregnancy after 35 years of age?

a) Infertility

Infertility is more common in women as they age. As we age, our fertility naturally declines. imagesWomen who postpone their decision to have a baby often are surprised when they are unable to conceive immediately. This adds to their worry and anxiety. Instead of getting anxious it is best to consult a doctor if a woman is unable to conceive even after six months of trying.

b) Diabetes and blood pressure

Chances of suffering from certain health conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure significantly increase with age. Such conditions often begin to affect women after the age of 30. Getting pregnant with these health conditions poses a number of risks.

c) Birth defects

Incidence of certain chromosomal birth defects is more common in older mothers. To quote an example a 20 years old woman has a 1 in 1250 chance of having a baby with Down’s syndrome. This probability increases to 1 in 400 for a women aged 35 and 1 in 100 for a woman of 40 years of age.

d) Miscarriage and stillbirth

Miscarriage and stillbirths are common in older women compared to young ones.

e) Complications during pregnancy

Complications happen more often in older women. Two of the most common and serious complications are gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia. Pre-eclampsia is also referred to as pregnancy induced hypertension. These conditions are normally monitored very closely by doctors to keep it under check.

f) Cesarean

As the age of the mother increases Cesarean rates too tend to rise. Statistically around 28% of women over the age of 35 undergo Cesarean as compared to only 10% of women under the age of 25.

Although there are increased risks of pregnancy after 35 years of age, most babies born to older mothers are normally healthy. After taking into consideration the age and physical condition of the mother, doctors monitor their health and suggest additional testing, wherever required. It is indeed possible to have a baby after 35 normally all that you need to do is to get regular prenatal care, eat a healthy diet and most importantly enjoy your pregnancy.

Want to get pregnant naturally and quickly? Use a proven all natural technique which will help you have a healthy pregnancy AT ANY AGE. Developed by a former infertility sufferer this method has helped women up to ages of 40s get pregnant naturally without drugs or surgery.

Tips For Women Losing Weight After 40


One of the best things about being over 40 is we feel we are a little smarter than we were at 20. Okay, I feel a whole lot smarter! I did not get to be over 40 and not learn anything. Sometimes I admit it took me a couple kicks at the can to really learn what I needed but learn it I did.

One of the areas I’m talking about is weight loss. It took me more than a couple turns at that can to know what worked best for me. More than likely you feel the same way. Like me you have discovered that while we feel we are smarter than we were years ago our body is proving to us just how much we don’t know yet! Yes, we are aging. Not that that’s a bad thing but as we age our body starts to slow down and prepares itself for menopause. Our estrogen is not being produced in the same amount it was when we younger causing our metabolism to slow down.

This means we have to work a bit harder than our “20 something” bodies did. Nobody ever said getting older would be easier but I would have thought that just getting to this age should have given us an excuse for some easy sailing! Oh well, if we were afraid of a bit of work we would have not lived through puberty, never gotten married or lived with someone and for sure NEVER would have had children!

Here are 4 weight loss tips I found to help me get my body to work with me not against.

1. EAT LESS CALORIES- as we have gotten older our body requires less calories. In order to lose weight we must burn more calories than we take in. Keep track how much you are eating in a day and add it up. Try to do this for 3 or 4 days. Eat what you would normally, don’t make any changes yet. After the 4 days you should have a gauge of how much you are taking in daily. Minus the total for the day by about 500 calories and try that.

2. EAT MORE OFTEN- you need to feed your body more often during the day than we have been. Instead of eating our calories in 3 meals during the day spread them out into 5-6 meals. This prevents overeating and binging.images

3. DON’T SKIP MEALS- you must eat breakfast to kick start your metabolism. Like a car your body needs fuel to work correctly. Hint: you actually burn calories just by digesting your food!

4. GET YOUR BODY MOVING- the best thing to improving your health, losing weight and feeling better is to get moving. This boosts our energy levels and makes us feel younger! I’m all for feeling younger! Start off slow by doing 15 minutes of activity 3 times a week and work up to 45 minutes of activity 4 to 5 times a week. You will be surprised at how good you will start to feel!

I hope this has helped you and given you some inspiration on your weight loss after 40 journey.
