Dive into Summer Safely

It's that time of year. Time to fire up the BBQ, invite over some friends and head out to the pool. Unfortunately, this is also the time of year when we see an increase in drowning incidents. Tragically, there have been two fatal drowning incidents in Peoria already this year. 

Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in children, and most importantly, drowning incidents are preventable. By strictly following some simple rules, you can ensure your family has a fun summer and a safe one, too. Nothing replaces constant eye-to-eye supervision of children. When you turn your back, shift your attention, start a conversation or check your phone that is when the drowning will occur. 

The simplest thing you can do to prevent a drowning is keep 100 percent of your attention on your children when you are around water. Make sure to block access to pools. Walk the perimeter of the house and look for ways a child can gain access to the pool. Make sure the pool fence is self-locking and self-latching. Look for household items children can use to climb the fence and make sure children can't open low handled doors or squeeze through doggie doors. Lastly, make sure to teach your children to swim. Swim lessons can begin as early as six months old. Adult and child swim lessons are offered by the city of Peoria.

Peoria Pools Open Memorial Day Weekend
As temperatures rise and the days get longer, visit the nearest Peoria pool for some fun in the sun. All three city pools will open Memorial Day weekend for open swim and lap. Sunrise Pool (21321 N. 86th Dr.) will open May 28 while Peoria (11200 N. 83rd Ave.) and Centennial (14388 N. 79th Dr.) Pools open May 30. There are several individual and family passes available, ranging from $1 (ages 2-16) to $75 for a family pass that is redeemable at all three pools.

Home Alone Kids

With the school year over, many school-aged kids will be spending more time alone this summer. Deciding when to leave your child at home alone for the first time can be difficult.  The Peoria Fire-Medical Department offers this advice for making sure your children are safe this summer. 

Though it is generally accepted that children under age 12 should not be left home alone, the primary determining factor should be maturity and safety as much as age. Whereas a mature, rule-following 12-year-old may be ready to be home alone, an impulsive, rebellious 15-year-old may not.  

If you feel your child is ready to spend time home alone, here are some important steps to take before the first time. 

Talk to your child about how they feel being left home alone; if they feel anxious or nervous they may not be ready. 
Make a plan. Talk about and role play various emergency situations including:

  •    What to do if the smoke alarm goes off
  •    What to do if a stranger rings the doorbell
  •    Answering the phone (don't tell people you're alone)  
  •    Basic first-aid scenarios

Make a list of emergency contacts. Talk to a trusted neighbor or friend that can keep an eye out or be a point of contact. Make sure the child has a phone, preferably a landline. 

Go through the house and block access to lighters, matches, alcohol, medications, tobacco and firearms. 
Make sure TV and internet restrictions are in place on all computers and devices. 
Create rules for cooking. Is the child ready to use the stove or microwave? Consider having food available that doesn't need to be cooked. 
Start slow. Leave your child home alone for short periods to see how they react. 
Call and check in frequently. Use video conferencing tools if available. 
Even if your child is a strong swimmer, no one should ever swim alone. 
Being left alone for a few hours at a time may be acceptable for your child but anyone under 16 should never be left alone overnight. Also, they may be mature enough to be left home alone; however, they may not be ready to care for a younger child. Make sure anyone who will be babysitting younger children has completed a babysitting course. 

If your children are not ready to be home alone, consider summer programs at camps, community centers or youth organizations. The City of Peoria has a teen drop-in program, called Step Out that is open from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for children in sixth through ninth grades. For more information on that program go to www.peoriaaz.gov/teenteam 

Eating & Work Outs/Lifetime Fitness

What not to eat before a workout:
-Avoid high carbohydrate meals and snacks that might diminish your fat burning capacity! Examples would include: a bagel with jelly or cream cheese. Instead opt for a 2 egg omelet with a side of Greek yogurt.
-Limit the quantities of fiber, as that can upset your stomach while exercising. Avoid high fiber cereals or eating large quantities of fruit before a workout. Instead, swap out for topping your cottage cheese or Greek yogurt with a small amount of chopped nuts or a few tablespoons of your favorite cereal or granola to get a few carbs in before your workout. 
-Avoid only having fat before your workout if you aren't used to it. This can sit heavy on your stomach and slow digestion. Fat can be a GREAT pre-exercise fueling choice, but only if you have trained your body to operate with higher fat intake. An Avocado with salsa might be a bit too heavy for most, but a great alternative would be to put a small amount of avocado on your eggs or a single piece of toast. 
-When to eat nothing at all if you are doing very early AM cardio, having nothing to eat may increase you fat burning capacity, but for those more challenging workouts be sure to fuel with a slow burn carb like Generation UCAN. For even an even better option pair it with the Strength Stack for an amped up workout without harsh stimulants or sugar. 
Junk Food you could eat after a workout:
 -Ice Cream go for one that's either lower sugar or higher protein content or simply a simple ice cream with REAL ingredients, but watch your portion size!
Better yet make your own "ice cream" smoothie at home using protein powder mix chocolate protein powder with either milk or almond milk, ½ a frozen banana & 1-2 Tbsp. peanut butter for a tasty treat!
 -Peanut Butter & "Jelly" Toast, with sliced Banana & cinnamon Go with whole grain toast or Gluten Free bread (if needed), and toast before topping with natural peanut butter and no-sugar added jelly or fresh berries, banana, & a dusting of cinnamon and/or cocoa powder
 -Burger and Fries Rather than going through the drive thru, make this meal at home! Go for an open faced burger (or lettuce wrap if you like) with grass fed beef and oven baked fries with either white or sweet potato. 
-Tacos some carbs post workout can be a nice choice! Swap out flour tortillas for corn tortillas and load up on your meat and fresh veggie toppings. Use guac and salsa to add flavor. For less carbs, swap for a taco salad and crunch just a few tortilla chips on top.
