How to Properly Recover When Starting a Fitness Routine

Did you have a new year resolution to start a fitness routine? How is it going so far? If there is one thing that have learned after losing 65 pounds through diet and exercise, it is that you have to just keep trying. It is okay to have a bad day, just get right back to it the next day. It is also okay to listen to your body and take a rest day. I started cross training in June of 2019, and I have loved it. But after your first workout, you will be a different kind of sore. So here are my tips on how to properly recover when starting a fitness routine.

Easiest Protein Brownie Recipe

I have been on a fitness and wellness journey for a few years now after what started as a weightloss journey. I never avoided foods I loved to try to lose weight. I would use the calorie deficit method. Which meant I still would enjoy the foods I loved, just healthier versions.

Top Exercises Recommended for New Mothers

In the wake of conceiving an offspring, your body will have undergone many changes - your body has grown into another human being, for starters! Pregnancy and childbirth's toll on a woman’s body is significant. Your stomach muscles are stretched to the limit, your pelvic floor is weakened by the force of pushing a baby out from such a small space, and not to mention you lose much strength in general. Thankfully, getting back into shape after childbirth isn’t as tricky. Getting started on an exercise routine after having a baby can seem almost overwhelming with all the information available about what kind of activity is best for you and when you should start doing them again.

However, there are just so many things that work for postpartum bodies and routines—after that, it’s up to you and how much effort you’re willing to put in. Your muscles can get sore post a workout.

How to Support Recovery When Working Out in Your 30s

I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. This post may contain affiliate links.

Here's the facts, we are no longer in our 20s anymore. We hurt ourselves when we sleep weird, we might have a grey hair or ten, and we don't like to stay up late or we'll feel horrible the next day. But we still have to work out and exercise to keep our bodies relatively in shape. So, what do we do? I have been on a health and wellness journey for a few years now. I started CrossFit in 2019 and while it was the best thing ever did for myself (I am in the best shape of my life), I am not as young as I once was. Even in the few years since I have started, I have realized that having a proper recovery routine is key to meeting my long-term goals. So here is my list of things that have started doing to help support recovery without breaking a hip.

Apps to Make Money While You Lose Weight

I was looking through my Timehop and I was reminded that two years ago my husband and I really buckled down to start our weightloss journey. We made many lifestyle changes along the way and that has been the key to success. We watch what we eat more carefully and we make sure to get 30 minutes of cardio in daily. We are still learning what works for us and had to change up our routines because sometimes we would get in a plateau. It has been a process, but we are loving knowing that we are setting a better foundation for our children.

If you know me, then you know that I am going to try and monetize anything and everything. I use to extreme coupon and I still love using coupon and discount apps regularly. And through this journey I have found so many apps to help you make money while you are getting healthy.

Word of the Year: Wanderlust - Meaning, Inspiration, & Planning

I haven't talked about it much on here yet, but my word of the year is "Wanderlust".
What does that mean? It means a strong desire to travel. We started really exploring the world around us last year, in fact you can read about all of our Family Travel adventures HERE.

From a trip to Stone Mountain.

My husband and I have decided that we aren't going to sweat the small stuff anymore because you only live once and money doesn't go with you when you die. I think there has just been so many events that happened recently in our lives that made us want to enjoy life more. And we enjoy spending time together and enjoying "experiences". So what does that mean? We love traveling to explore new places, we like going to shows together (like when we went to The Fox and saw "The Lion King"), and our new passion that we discovered last year - hiking.

My Work Out Style with PACT Organic Clothing

As you may know, we have been on a fitness and healthy lifestyle journey. We have completely changed the way we have been eating and we have actually been using our gym memberships instead of just wasting money like we were doing before. We wanted to create a better life for ourselves and our children. We have been exploring our world too through hiking (I will share more on that later) and I want comfortable clothes to do that in.

PACT Organic makes super soft cotton clothing that is better for both people and planet because they use organic farming practices that don’t pollute the soil or water while partnering with organizations that protect the well-being of the people who make the clothes. Organic cotton doesn’t pollute the soil or air and uses 71% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton. Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe because they are not exposed to toxic chemicals.

WE DID IT! Running the Color Run 5K Atlanta

I told you all that we were going to be running our first 5k and I am happy to report that we did it! I was a nervous wreck before hand. I had been having serious pain in my hip and I didn't know if I was going to be able to power through. I decided my husband and I needed a non-weight goal to look forward to, so we signed up to run the Color Run 5K Atlanta. Since this was a fun run, you didn't have to run the entire time (just keep moving) which is why I loved it for our first 5k.

My husband and sister-in-law ran with me. My father-in-law was kind of enough to get up super early so we could head to the Atlanta Motor Speedway. I was worried about what to do with my phone and if I should wear my Bluetooth headphones or even my Fit Bit because I didn't want them to get ruined by paint. But the paint is powdered and you don't have to get any on you if you don't want to. It was a little chilly that morning, but I just knew I would get hot once we started running.

What to Stream When You're Trying to Lose Weight

The hubby and I are running our first 5K on Saturday. From what I can tell, it's a color run so it isn't as competitive as other races seem to be. So it will be a great first 5K especially since we are beginning runners. We have started a weight loss journey and healthy lifestyle to become a #FitFam (fitness family). We want to be healthy. And to get in the mind set, we have been streaming different documentaries to help us in our process. I have made a list of what to stream when you are trying to lose weight.

I love Aurorae Yoga! They make very quality products at awesome prices. I have been on a weightloss journey and trying my hand at a little yoga.
