🏋️♀️I haven't posted a workout Wednesday post in awhile. . 🏋️♀️My social media usage has been inconsistent lately. But health journey has been overall on track. . 🏋️♀️I refuse to gain any holiday weight. My plan is that I will be indulging on the holidays and keeping it healthy-ish the rest of the time. . 🏋️♀️Plus because I had 15 minutes of free time yesterday I planned out every workout I'll do for the rest of 2018.
This is one of the biggest shifts in perspective I've had over the last two years: Wellness and prevention is greater than treatment. My thought process before I started using oils was never to really think about staying well. If we got sick, I immediately went to thinking about how to get rid of the symptoms. I'd run to the nearest CVS and go up and down those aisles and grab every box and pill I would find. Never once looking at the back of the box, where it listed the ingredients and side effects. Oh, the side effects. The toxic ingredients. Things we all typically turn a blind eye to on a regular basis. I mean, it’s on the shelf, so it MUST be perfectly fine to use… #knowbetterdobetter Now, our focus is on KEEPING ourselves healthy. How? We put as much good, nourishing, life-giving food into our bodies as we can. And to help fill in the gaps where we might be lacking, we use high-quality, as whole-food as possible supplements. 👊🏻 We drink A LOT of clean, filtered water. Like, A LOT. Half our weight in ounces to be more specific. 🙌🏻 We get our bodies moving, every day. Sometimes we go to the gym. Sometimes we do a video. Sometimes we just walk. The important part is that it is for a MINIMUM of 30 minutes every day. Especially when we don’t want to. 💪🏻 We sleep. This is an area that we have been trying to greatly improve. Just like many of you, after the kids go to bed and we collapse on the couch, we can get sucked into all that social media and TV has to offer. 😏 I get it. Before you know it the clock says 10:30. Or maybe even 11:30pm. That’s why we have been setting an alarm and try to get upstairs once it goes off to get ready for bed and wind down. It doesn’t happen every night - yet - but on the nights that it does, we wake up SO well rested. ✌🏻 We use products that are safe to touch our skin. Go watch ‘The Human Experiment’. You’ll see what I mean. 💔 We use our oils to help support our body to do what it
I woke up this morning feeling “fluffy.” I ate WAY too much this weekend. I tend to overeat on the weekends but you know what? That’s OK. You have to enjoy yourself sometimes! - ⭐️ I know that even though today I may have weighed more on the scale and been more bloated I can get right back on track and feel better within a few days! - 💪🏻 Even if you fall off track for a few days make sure you get back on track. Don’t use the excuse I used to use “well I already ate bad so I might as well give up.” Change your mindset. Enjoy yourself and then get back to fueling your body with healthy Whole Foods 😌
12 months postpartum check-in @carrierfitness PART 2 After 6 months I did a whole 30 challenge. This helped me to get over my grains addiction. I had to quit eating oatmeal for breakfast. During this challenge, I concentrated on keeping my calories up to keep my milk supply up. I was eating lots of sweet potatoes for the extra carbs and almond butter for extra fat. This challenge helped me get back into my old healthy eating habits. After the challenge, I kept eating the same whole 30 way with some occasional treats here and there. I am trying to stay away from grains as much as I can because I tend to overeat when I have them in my diet. Same goes for nuts and nut butter. I am very bad with keeping my portions low. As per my workouts, I tried to work out 4-5 times per week. 30-45 minutes on average. I lift heavy and if I do any cardio it is high-intensity cardio. There is no time for long 1,5 hour workouts anymore. You can get the same benefits in a shorter time. And I do all my workouts at home during Nico's nap or when he goes to bed. This way I am not wasting any time driving to the gym. Remember everybody’s postpartum journey is different so don’t be too hard on yourselves. ❤️ My next focus is on growing my glutes and strengthening my pelvic floor. What was or is the hardest thing to overcome to become fit postpartum?
