Hi all! As most of you know, working out is a STRUGGLE for me. To say the least! Especially after having Remi, I am still trying to figure out when the best time to shower and clean the house is, let alone squeeze a workout in. I love that there are so many “work out at home” options these days, so you don’t have to go anywhere, and you don’t need any fancy equipment. I was recently introduced to the BodyBoss Method. What it is is a Fitness Guide you follow…you workout 3 days a week, for 24 active minutes, and the program is 12 weeks. BodyBoss workouts include fun and challenging high intensity workouts. You may have heard of HIIT before, high intensity interval training, these circuits are key for maximum fat burning and power. They also have made a bonus 4 week pre-training program, which is so nice for people like me who are intimidated or not in shape to just jump right in!
Hey all! Have you guys heard of the collagen trend going on right now? I first heard about it and the benefits of it earlier in the year, while I was pregnant. I heard that it was specifically really good for your hair, nails, and skin, and all I could think about is how I need in on this because we all know how much our hair falls out postpartum. (well mine at least, anyways, ugh!)
Collagen is naturally produced in our body, but once we hit a certain age, the production dramatically decreases and the signs of aging start setting in. Supplementing collagen daily can help to counteract this. Now, I am no doctor, but I talked to my midwife and was given the go ahead to start this. I have been taking it daily for about 2 weeks and I have noticed my nails are growing like crazy, and seem super strong. I am anxious to see the effects that it has on my hair, if it will help with postpartum hair loss.
Okay hear me out. I know I have said time and time again that I am going to start working out and get back into shape, but this time I really am holding myself to it! I think for my sanity alone, I need to “just do it” (no pun intended). I don’t know when I lost my affinity for working out, but I suppose it was sometime between the ages of 21-24. So a long, long time ago! Growing up I was so active and athletic, and I even feel like I’m so uncoordinated now. I don’t know what the heck happened, but it is going to change! And I want/need you to help hold me acocuntable.
