5 Friday Wellness Favorites

5 Wellness Favorites
Happy New Year and new DECADE! I am so thankful to be back on track and back on a schedule in my life. I have absolutely missed my routine. We try to keep things steady around here during the holidays but something about school being in session seems to really keep things moving around here. You can peak into our daily lives by heading over to my Instagram and watching my stories. If you are a new follower, please DM me and I will follow you back! 

2019 was an awesome year in so many ways. I hit so many goals and I am looking forward to going further in 2020. I hit a few minor setbacks during Christmas but I am happy I was able to enjoy myself with absolutely no guilt or remorse. I definitely want to get away from thinking foods are forbidden or bad and just realize that all things are permissible although they are not all beneficial so moderation is key. There are so many parties and reasons to indulge which I say, GO FOR IT but after so many times of saying go for it, I begin to feel sluggish and my joints hurt. I am grateful to be detoxing and working on my health and wellness goals this year. I have been SO happy with the progress I have made and I am confident that I will surpass last year's goals and hit new ones if I keep up what I have been doing. Here are a few things I am loving:

 1.This AWESOME Journal under $7
I love to journal my prayer, ideas, budgets and plans to declutter my home. I am so excited about this journal I found that will help me track my wellness goals over the next 90 days. Love that the time period is 90 days and will fit in perfectly with my 90 day Sprint that I mention in this post
I will be journaling my workouts, what I ate and if I took my supplements. I found that a lot of times I would think I was working out a lot more than I was but here would be days I would forget or get too busy. By writing this down as I go, I am able to see exactly how much I work out, if I am feeding my muscles enough healthy fuel and if I am actually remembering to take my supplements. There would be days I had tremendous energy that I can track to getting in my BCAA. I excited to have purchased the 90 day journal below which is a simple way of tracking all of the above and is a surprisingly cheap option.


 2.Camo Compression Leggings. I am legit in love with these! They are high waisted which = AMAZING and really appreciate that they don't roll down. Just perfect, I pretty much live in them :DI will say the compression is very minor if you are used to Spanx and especially the leather Spanx (those are my all time favs).  Ido really love these because I don't worry about messing them up and can clean and play w the kids in them. I want them in the dark gray as well...

 

 3. BCAA& Prenatal vitamins. I notice a tremendous difference when I take Branch Chain Amino Acids paired with my prenatal vitamin. 



Branch Chain Amino Acids are made up of leucine, isoleucine and valine.Your muscles are comprised these proteins which must be consumed through food or supplements as your body does not produce them. Body builders take the because the do give energy during a workout which is why I believe they are so helpful for busy women. We need that kind of energy all day! A lot of women are low in iron which causes fatigue. Taking the prenatal helps replenish that iron and your energy levels will improve. I found myself dragging in the middle of the afternoon but when I started taking these two supplements but energy levels improved immensely.


 4. Cranwater or any infused water. 


I know I sound like a broken record but I LOVE the benefits of cranwater or liquid chlorophyl. Somehow the addition makes me drink more water so I love that it keeps me well hydrated. When your body is well hydrated you have less hunger signals sent your brain and your systems function as they are meant to. Your endocrine system performs better, which regulates hormones and your digestive system which eliminates toxins. The cranberry strengthens connective tissues in your body to keep you looking younger and eliminates the appearance of cellulite.
I also enjoy Kevita Water kefir, Kombucha and Apple Cider Vinegar, all of which have detoxification benefits. 



5. Rebounder. Have you read about this and always wanted to try it but have never taking the "leap"? Start today and by the end of the month you will be feeling AMAZING! The rebounder has been deemed the best form of exercise by NASA. It is easy on the joints, jars the lymphatic system to effectively stir up toxins which are flushed out when you drink your water after  and during your workout. I talk about this ALL the time on my blog because I am so passionate about it. It truly works better for me than anything else I have tried and I have tried a LOT of things. I was a person trainer for the Texas State University fitness program and have been asked to return to my position multiple times but I just cannot do that while homeschooling my kids. I choose to share my knowledge for free here on my blog with all of you! 



How about you? What are your health and wellness goals for 2020?I hope these will be helpful to you and wish you many blessings and much success this new year.
Grace & Peace,
Adoring Family
