#FYF: Back to Shape, Back to Me

zoom_black-swan-back zoom_black-swan-front_1On this Finding Yourself Friday, I’m focusing on getting back to shape.  Now that I have been cleared by my OB for a little more movement, I’m excited to get back to me!  During my entire pregnancy I was getting pitches left and right for all sorts of wonderful products to aid in getting back to shape and FINALLY my time is here!  Maybe for you its that mid-year hump that you need to get over?  Perhaps its that forgotten New Years Resolution?  Well it’s time for me to focus on ME and you to focus on YOU!

Ellie.com is the latest in the monthly subscription craze and with cute workout outfits like theirs, I can definitely get motivated by that alone! For $49.95 a month you’ll become a Fit Fashionista Club Member and get to choose (2) items with a new collection launching every month plus free shipping.  You don’t have to be a member, although it has its perks, but you can purchase pieces individually anytime.  They believe  you’ll love their product so much, they have a No Hassle Guarantee (unlike another well known brand) which offers free shipping both ways. To motivate this not so cute muffin topped mama, my first outfit from the March – Little Black Collection was this super chic Black Swan Tank and Dark Matter Leggings, cause who doesn’t need more leggings and I just absolutely love the back on the Black Swan Tank.

metamorphTracy Anderson, famed trainer to celebrities like Madonna and Gweneth Paltrow launched her newest program called Metamorphosis. While her instructions are given via DVD, do not call it a DVD program.  Self proclaimed as a lifestyle program, it is a targeted approach to getting your body back into shape.  After you honestly take her body calculator to figure out your problem area, and give you access to Tracy teaching and provide you a customized step-by-step workout to do at home. If you follow her program, at least 6 days a week for 1 hour a day, she guarantees you’ll see transformation right before your very eyes.

drink-chiaTo get you through the intense workout Tracy Anderson puts you through, you need to hydrate the right way.  I recently just discovered the benefits of Chia Seeds and tried Drink Chia‘s delicious line up of drinks.  It’s rich in Omega-3 and antioxidants and packed full of goodness to get you through.  My favorite flavor is the Strawberry Citrus.

iskreamSo now you’ve got your cute outfit and your slammin workout routine, but it takes a lot more than that to get in shape.  Diet has a huge impact on your results.  I love dessert time and as a child it was reserved only for special occasions, which was rare and far between.  I may be known to over indulge as compensation and that’s why I was tickled pink to try out Iskream, the first ice cream available on the market made with Truvia, a natural sweetener that comes from the leaves of the stevia plant.  Without the added sugar and lower in fat compared to regular ice cream, Iskream is a perfect way to indulge in a delicious guilt free treat without breaking your calorie quota! Now you’re wondering about the flavor.  I had a chance to try out Chocolate Cherry Chunk, Java Chip and Vanilla.  Let me tell you, it does not disappoint.  I am in love with Chocolate Cherry Chuck which tastes just like my favorite Cherry Garcia.

skintightFeeling a little overwhelmed… need a little pampering?  Check out Mamamio, a brand who knows and understands the needs of mamas.  As you my recall, I obsessed over their clean slate.  I was the girl who use to wash her face with bar soap much to the chagrin of dermatologists everywhere until I discovered clean slate.  They have the perfect line for me to Get Your (my) Body Back with  Skin Tight Toning Serum and Get Waisted Body Shaper… it’s like they read my mind.

So let’s get to it Mamas! and let’s get back to you and me!
