I’ve spent years on the sidelines of the soccer field watching my older children play. It’s been one of my biggest joys. Pedro looks so happy on the field, just like his older brother always did.
I’ve been a Team Manager and all-hats soccer mom. This year, I’m a soccer coach, too! Yep, I’m coaching the triplets’ U8 team and I couldn’t be happier, or more sore. We’ve only had the first few practices but I’ve already learned a gazillion lessons. I actually have to teach these adorable kids something. They can’t just run after the ball trying to kick it. All of the things that the parents do, I have done also. I must be patient and empathetic with them, too. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that I’m not as fit as a seven-year-old. They are fast, strong, flexible, and full of stamina. Keeping up with them has brought on the muscle aches and pains, as well as the headaches. I’m not on the sidelines anymore. That was a lot easier. I’m not about to give up though! I’m a weekend warrior.
While I was at Target the other day, I stocked up on Extra Strength TYLENOL® and TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain. I have some in the medicine cabinet and some in the first aid kit in my van. It helps me keep going when the muscle aches and headaches kick in. I’m getting the most exercise I have in a long time, and it’s about time!
Extra Strength TYLENOL® temporarily relieves minor aches and pains due to the common cold, headache, backache, minor pain of arthritis, and more. I really like TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain for being so long-lasting! Our Saturdays are long days and I love that I can get 8 hours of relief with a single dose.
In addition to staying more active, I’m trying to stay hydrated, eat healthier, and enjoy all the fruits of the season. Mangos are one of my favorite snacks and drink flavors, especially as a smoothie. If you’ve never had a mango smoothie before, you’ll thank me. These are also great for freezing into sealed plastic bags to take on-the-go.
Mango Smoothie with Chamoy Recipe
For this recipe, you’ll need six large mangos, two limes, 8 cups of ice, chamoy sauce, and optional hotsauce and Mexican chile topping. The also optional dried mangos with chile adds the perfect touch!
Personally, I like to puree the mangos one at a time, but you can puree them together, too. You’ll need four. Peel and slice the other two, then set them aside to top your mango smoothie with.
Each large mango makes about 1 cup of puree. Add the juice from two limes, 8 cups of ice, then blend.
Swirl chamoy sauce and hot sauce into your serving cup.
Add your smoothie and top with fresh sliced mangos and dried mangos with chile.
- 6 Mangos

- 8 Cups of Ice

- spicy Mexican toppings (optional)
- Dried mangos & chile (optional)
- Puree four mangos.
