Why do we live as though single measurements (like one’s BMI, the number on the scale, or the ability to run a mile in under 12 minutes) are an effective and definitive way to assess health?

Changing Our Body Image Dialogue “Mom, I need to tell you what happened in my P.E. class.”

But the BMI has been shown to be grossly misused

“What?”

According to a 2013 study completed by the University of California, San Francisco, and published in the Journal of Scholastic Health, “BMI screening and notification via FITNESSGRAM assessments did not demonstrate improvements in pediatric obesity at the population level.” This is not the only study that has shown this less than promising impact on our culture’s “war” on obesity.

“My teacher repeated my weight in front of the whole class. Twice.” The term “mama bear” comes to mind when I reflect back on this recent experience shared by one of my children. In a flash, I felt my body well up with rage, my chest tightening from internal pressure that made me want to explode. Here is the immediate script for the P.E. teacher that I began rehearsing at lightning speed in my mind:

growing up roseville magazine

Sooo… I understand that you just completed the state’s mandatory fitness and body composition testing. Tell me, exactly where does it say in the requirements that YOU are required to repeat my child’s weight in front of peers? Twice. And, please tell me exactly what YOU were thinking when you did this, because I have to believe that, since you’ve already given her a hard time about her fitness level, it was either intentionally humiliating, or you are just plain stupid.

JEN LOMBARDI, MFT, CEDS

Mama bear. I was in definite mama bear mode. Mama bear is that part of me that puffs up when I, or when someone I love, feels shame. And that is what I could see on my daughter’s face when she shared her story. In our culture, we often use single variables to measure our worth. Take the BMI, for instance. BMI (Body Mass Index) is one of the most commonly used measurements in schools to determine one’s risk for obesity; it is widely viewed as the single determinant of a child’s health. As part of the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) 2006 federal guidelines, schools participating in the school lunch program were required to institute a “wellness policy.” Many schools opted to comply by, among other things, measuring BMI and instituting some form of nutrition education and/or fitness testing. This set in motion practices that included not only measuring the BMI, but also sending letters to parents of children whose BMI measurements were identified as falling into the overweight or obese range.

This brings me back to my daughter’s P.E. experience. If the intention is to help a child and perhaps even help families have more balanced relationships with food and exercise, how is a single measurement going to be effective? If I told my child “to get into Harvard Law School, you just need to get an A+ in debate class. That’s it,” we would consider that laughable. Why? Because we know that it takes much more than a stellar, single grade in a single class to get into Harvard (or any college for that matter). Why do we live as though single measurements (like one’s BMI, the number on the scale, or the ability to run a mile in under 12 minutes) are an effective and definitive way to assess health? If we are to make a change, we need to change the narrative on weight and exercise. We have to use language that is not divisive, shaming or extreme. If there is an upside to this story, it is this: it started a dialogue — with friends, family and colleagues, and even here in this magazine, about what we want for our loved ones when it comes to body image and our relationship to food and exercise. Fortunately, my daughter came to me with her story. She owned it and spoke about the humiliation she experienced, instead of internalizing it and staying silent, which would have led to her swimming alone in shame. Her courage allowed her to let us in, to get curious about the experience, and to write, as Brene Brown, PhD, LMSW, would say, “a brave new ending.” This is the type of narrative that I hope will continue, encouraging body confidence and resilience to our culture’s toxic narrative about body image and exercise.

Art Bistro By Amiee Rebmann

I

The Cure for the Starving Artist

ndulge your creative spirit and your hunger at the Art Bistro! This social art studio, restaurant, and wine bar is “the cure for the starving artist”… welcoming anyone who wants to have a little fun, and perhaps enjoy a bite to eat and drink, while creating their artistic masterpiece. I wanted to merge my background, which consisted of 10 years of traditional art teaching in the schools and 5 years operating my mobile “paint and sip” business, Creative Juices Events, in the Sacramento region, by creating an art studio that would get the creative juices flowing for both adults and kids. The paint and sip concept has been geared toward the over 21 crowd for a fun date night or ladies’ night out, but it is leaving out all of those tweens and teens that would thoroughly enjoy this. I love being able to provide a relaxing, yet fun experience that has people discovering something new about themselves, bonding with the people they came with, and sending them home with something they are both proud of, and amazed they were able to create. I was a child that thought I had no artistic ability, so to have discovered my love of art in college and see that it is all about continuing to develop skill for something you enjoy, has been a message I try to share with those who come to a class feeling a bit of trepidation. It is such a pleasure to support people in techniques so that they can find their own artistic expression and know that no one will create the way they will. That’s a gift! This has been a journey that has shown me that I can accomplish whatever I set my mind to! The art studio was a natural fit with my background, but going into

the restaurant business was unforeseen. I learned that I had to operate as a full restaurant to allow anyone under 21 to enjoy the space if wine and beer were sold, or even allowed to be consumed in my studio. It was scary, but I decided to take the leap and the Art Bistro was born! It just didn’t feel right to offer another 21 and over only kind of studio after all of my years working with kids, and the Roseville area is such a family oriented community that it made sense to create a new concept that would appeal to adults and kids, while bringing families together. The art studio is the main focus, but I’m thrilled that the food and wine/beer selection is getting a lot of attention. The fun atmosphere makes the bistro a great place to grab lunch or hang out for happy hour… even if you do not feel like creating a work of art. On the menu, you will find stone-fired pizzas, sandwiches, salads, cheese plates and a kid’s menu. We also have a nice selection of indulgent desserts to tempt you! But the creativity does not stop there. In addition to the guided painting classes (and occasional other class offerings), the Art Bistro offers an “Open Studio” that can be enjoyed anytime we are open on a drop-in basis. Kids ages 5+ are welcome with an adult, and teens may come on their own. It’s great seeing families create together, as well as offering a fun date idea, or getting friends together. Everyone can choose a different project which makes it really unique. Choose from painting on canvas or glassware, glazing ceramic pieces, creating a mosaic, clay sculpting, 3-D drawing, collage, and wood burning, to name a few. You will be supported by friendly staff in getting


“It’s great seeing families create together, as well as offering a fun date idea, or getting friends together.� started with whatever type of project you choose and then the creativity is up to you! A $10 daily studio fee covers most things, (including the clean up), and then you purchase whatever form (canvas, ceramic piece, mosaic form, glassware) on which you would like to create. We would like to continue expanding our open studio offerings and are looking at candle making and glass fusing to add this year. We would love to entertain any ideas and requests you may have as well! The Art Bistro not only caters to the individual or family, but also works with

area businesses for team building events, group fundraisers, and social groups to offer what promises to be a popular outing. Giving back to the community is an important part of our business model as well. The paintings created by instructors during the classes are donated with a gift certificate to fundraising auctions and are also offered for sale at $25, which is then donated to a local nonprofit organization. For families, it is all about the kids. In addition to the scheduled classes and open art studio, the Art Bistro offers

birthday parties, as well as a summer camp featuring painting, clay, and mixed media days. $10 painting specials weekdays from 3-6pm make the Art Bistro an affordable after school activity. After celebrating one year in March 2017, the Art Bistro is quickly becoming a favorite place to enjoy in the Roseville area. We are excited to be offering something that truly brings value to our community. Come see us and engage your inner artist!

Central Command Centers: Every Household Needs One

BY LINDSEY TAYLOR

W

hat is a command center exactly? A command center is a central location where you get organized. This article is going to help you take command of your home, step-by-step.

F

irst, you must determine what kind of command center will work for your family, and where you want to put it. Find a blank wall, or corner, and get to work. Be creative. There is no right or wrong way to build a command center. Determine what is most important to your family, and figure out the areas that you need to organize. Start with the basics; a calendar and a clock. Use a calendar to track appointments, rehearsals, talent shows, sports games, teacher conferences, meetings, and other engagements. Perhaps you need to write out an agenda to keep your day organized. Consider purchasing a white board calendar that allows you to fill in an agenda for the week.

growing up up chico roseville magazine 1414 growing magazine

N

ext, hang a few file trays for important papers that need attention and incoming mail. This will eliminate the pile of useless papers that most busy households have stacked in a corner somewhere. Make a habit of clearing your important paper bin, weekly.

I

f you have school-age kids, you may want to add hooks to hang backpacks, and even a file tray for homework that needs to be checked. Once the kids have done their homework, they should place it in the tray for mom or dad to check. Your command center is an excellent

place to delegate chores. Each chore is added to a board and family members rotate the responsibility.

T

here are so many excellent ideas for your command center. You may want to add a grocery list, a coupon bin, a cork board to pin important cards, tickets to events, or invitations. You may want to hang clipboards for permission slips, report cards, and other papers that need to be signed. Your command center may have a dry erase, or chalk board, where you can include notes and instructions. You may want to include a place to hang keys or ID badges. Your command center is your organizational tool that should keep your family on track and stress-free.

I

have attached a few pictures of my family’s command center. The first, and most important part for us, is our affirmations. To make our affirmation board, I used picture frames and each week, I write a different affirmation to the kids. You will notice a clock, as well as a chore list. In our family, we do not pay the kids to do chores. Chores are a part of being in the family. The chore list does however have space for the kids to earn money by doing extra jobs around the house. Our kids are responsible for cleaning their backpacks and putting their papers that need attention in the inbox. I sort through the papers and return anything that needs to go back in their backpacks. Artwork is usually displayed on hooks in the command center. We also have a parent’s box which is where my husband and I put important paperwork that needs to be dealt with. Have fun getting organized by creating your own command center!

SURROGACY 101

By Kimberley Humble

WHAT IS SURROGACY?

WHY SURROGACY?

SURROGACY MISCONCEPTIONS

Basically, it is when one woman carries and births a child for someone else. It has become popular and controversial in recent years, and is often misunderstood. The first documented surrogacy arrangement occurred in the early 1980s, with the first successful birth via surrogacy happening a few years later. In recent years, celebrities such as: Tyra Banks, Jimmy Fallon, Nicole Kidman, Neil Patrick Harris, and many others have chosen the surrogacy route to expand their families, thrusting the topic into the spotlight.

Reasons for surrogacy range from inability to become pregnant, to multiple miscarriages, medical conditions, and more. Surrogacy is not for just the rich and famous, sometimes friends and family step in, as was the case in 2005, when a 58 year old mother acted as a surrogate for her daughter and sonin-law, giving birth to their twin daughters, her granddaughters. Amazing! Unlike this case, most of the time, surrogate candidates and families are connected via agencies or independently through online groups.

Today, there are any misconceptions, the top of which is that surrogates give away “their” babies. In reality, rarely is a surrogate, or her husband, genetically related to the child she is carrying. There are two types of surrogates: gestational and traditional. Gestational surrogates have no genetic relationship to the child they are carrying. The embryo has been created at an IVF clinic and is transferred into the surrogate’s uterus with the hope that development will continue. Traditional surrogates become pregnant using their

own eggs, along with the sperm of the intended father. In this type of surrogacy, there is a genetic relationship to the surrogate carrying the pregnancy. Traditional surrogacy is a rarity today, as scientific advances have led to very high success rates of pregnancy using IVF with gestational surrogates. Another common misconception is that surrogates are primarily financially motivated. While compensation is part of the equation, the act of surrogacy is altruistic in nature. Surrogates all have children of their own and cannot imagine a life without them, opening their hearts and minds


to the possibility of helping others become parents. There are two types of surrogacy arrangements, commercial and altruistic. Commercial surrogacy is when the surrogate mother is compensated a set amount of money for each month she is pregnant. Altruistic surrogacy is when the surrogate does not receive compensation for carrying the pregnancy. In both types of arrangements, intended parents bear costs, such as IVF fees, pregnancy co-pays, insurance premiums, and legal fees. Intended parents also bear 100% of the parental responsibilities once the child is born,

which they are thrilled to do. This is what they have been dreaming about, striving towards, and praying for! In both arrangements, surrogates must be financially stable and not reliant on government aid.

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE On a personal note, I first became involved in surrogacy in 1999, when I was hired as a doula for a surrogate. The intended mother did not have a uterus, and hence, had known since she was a teenager that she would never be able to carry her own child. Watching the joy of the parents

as they held their baby for the first time was indescribable. There were so many tears of joy and gratitude. The surrogate was incredibly honored to have been trusted with the care for their daughter in utero and was so happy to see them all together as a family for the first time. I knew from that moment on, that I too, wanted to bless a family in the same way when the time was right to do so! While surrogacy is not for everyone, if the idea tugs on your heartstrings, there is a family waiting for your help.

HOW DO YOU BECOME A SURROGATE? The first thing you do if you are interested in becoming a surrogate is research, research, research! Learn the legalities, requirements, and ethical agency options. Know your personal preferences regarding intended parents and expectations. Join groups, ask questions, and be in touch if you would like additional information. Surrogacy has changed my life, as well as the lives of so many families in the best of ways. It is such a gift!

Frozen Treats By Andie Sands

Creamy Mango Popsicles Ingredients • 10 oz. frozen mango (or fruit of your choice) • 1 can full-fat coconut milk (or 13 oz. milk of choice) • 2 tbsp. sweetener of choice- honey works great! • optional, 1 overripe banana

summer fun

Make Your Own

Instructions *Note: The popsicles will be much creamier if full-fat coconut milk is used, but any milk will work. You can also blend in 1/4 cup of raw cashews (soaked in water for a few hours to soften them) or some raw almond butter for a creamy result if you cannot have coconut, but want creamier popsicles. Recipe: Blend all ingredients until completely smooth. Pour into Popsicle molds and freeze. I add Popsicle sticks (purchased at a craft store) about 1/2 hour after freezing so the sticks stay upright. To easily remove popsicles when ready to eat, run the Popsicle mold under warm water for a few seconds, and then gently twist off. http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2016/09/08/homemade-popsicles-recipe/

growing up up chico roseville magazine 1818 growing magazine

Frozen Yogurt Fruit Bark Ingredients • 1 large container of plain yogurt • 1 tablespoon vanilla • 2 cups chopped fruit • *Sweetener can be used if you like your yogurt sweet

https://www.courtneyssweets.com/frozen-yogurt-fruit-bark-recipe/

Instructions • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. • Mix the plain yogurt with vanilla. • Pour the yogurt onto the baking sheet and spread a little to even out. • Sprinkle on the chopped fruit and freeze for 3-4 hours until frozen solid. • Slice up and enjoy!


Watermelon Sherbet 2-Ingredient Watermelon Sherbet is a light, refreshing, frozen treat that comes together with just fruit and yogurt. It’s the perfect healthy snack or dessert for cooling down all summer long! Ingredients (vegetarian and gluten free) • 3 cups seedless watermelon cubes, cut 1 inch in size and frozen solid • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt Instructions Add half of the frozen watermelon cubes to a large food processor. Process until the watermelon breaks down and becomes grainy. Stop the food processor and add half of the yogurt. Process until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Scoop the sherbet into a separate container and repeat steps with the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately for a frozen yogurt/soft-serve consistency. For a firmer consistency, freeze for 1 to 2 hours and then scoop. Leftovers may be frozen solid, but the sherbet will be very hard and impossible to scoop straight out of the freezer. Instead, place the container of frozen sherbet in the refrigerator to slowly soften for 3 hours before serving, at which point it should be scoopable. http://www.fivehearthome.com/2016/08/08/2-ingredient-watermelon-sherbet/?crlt. pid=camp.7Coea9PbCDAn

Frozen Bananas Ingredients • Bananas • Semi-sweet chocolate chips • Toppings: sprinkles, coconut shavings, nuts, or any other toppings you love! Instructions Insert the Popsicle sticks into the bananas, and then melt the chocolate either in the microwave or in a double boiler on your stove top. Once it’s good and gooey, dip the banana pops into the mixture until they are coated. Shake on some sprinkles and place those puppies on parchment paper. Stick the whole thing in the freezer. Give ‘em about an hour to set. Now you’re ready to chow down, guilt-free. www.purewow.com/food/frozen-banana-recipe

Avocado Fudge Pops Ingredients • 1 large Hass avocado, ripe (about 1 cup packed flesh) • 1 and ½ cups Almond Breeze Almond milk, Original Unsweetened • ½ cup maple syrup • ⅓ cup cocoa powder • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract • Pinch of salt Instructions • Scoop the avocado flesh out from the skin and discard the skin and pit. • Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. • Pour the mixture into an ice pop mold. • Freeze for 8 hours or longer. • Run warm water over the mold to release the pops. http://uprootkitchen.com/2016/06/01/avocado-fudge-pops/

Paper Bead Making

You’ll Need:

magazine 2222 growing growing up up roseville chico magazine

www.growinguproseville.com www.growingupchico.com

• • • • •

Junk mail, such as catalogs or magazinesglossy, colorful pages work best Glue stick White glue Toothpick or other small cylinder, such as an ink pen refill String or wire for creating your beaded jewelry

Instructions:

1. Find some colorful, glossy pages in old magazines, catalogs or junk mail. 2. Cut one 4-inch by 1-inch triangle out of the paper for each bead you plan to make. Rectangles will work to create a different shape. 3. Apply glue from the glue stick to the narrow end of the triangle. 4. Use your toothpick or small cylinder to roll the triangle from the wide end up to the glued end. 5. Make sure the narrow end is secured well to the bead so it does not come unraveledand then slide it off of your cylinder. 6. “Seal” your bead using one part white glue to three parts water. Painting this solution over your bead will protect it from the elements and keep it from unraveling. 7. Let the beads dry and then string your beads to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry, or combine the paper beads with other beads for more variety. Make necklaces, eye-glass holders, earrings, bracelets, bookmarks, etc. - The sky is the limit!
