We all know getting started on this journey is daunting and can be overwhelming. In the last 5 years I have found numerous finds that are now MUST HAVES for me and I recommend to all the girls in our accountability groups. I get asked so often about supplements, household, and clothing items I use so I thought why not put them all in one place for you. Some of these links are affiliate links but also products I personally use.
Supplements: First and foremost I am not a medical professional bit I have a serious love and passion for health and fitness and clean eating. I coach women every month to help support them on their journey and I have tried numerous products personally and these are my faves. Always consult your Dr. before starting a new routine.
PRE-WORKOUT - This is what I personally call LIQUID GOLD, Mom Crack, Unicorn Juice. Ha, yes I love it THAT much. I wish I could scream it from the roof tops. Let me also mention I am super sensitive to caffeine and have tried so many pre workout supplements that make me feel like I am crawling out of my skin and this one is SO gentle, a light tingle, and AMAZING extra push for your workout. Also did I mention it is an official sponsor of Iron Man. Yep, its that good. ENERGIZE. Seriously tastes like a lemon head. This very well may be my FAVE recommendation. This easily lasts me a month or more (usually more) CLICK HERE!
POST WORKOUT - So I will not lie here, I haven't tried but a couple recovery formula's or BCAA's as they are often referred too. I will say, I really went into this hopeful but not really expecting much. If you have ever started a new lifting routine or experienced Shaun T. you will understand the soreness that sets in that the next day you think I need a rest day because I can't imagine moving any of these muscles. Yep, we've all been there. So to say I was pleasantly surprised, still sore, but nothing like the muscles feeling like they would pop out of your leg with every step you take. All that said, I am hooked and it tastes like chocolate milk. Also an official sponsor of Iron Man competitions. My tub has lasted me multiple months at a time. CLICK HERE!
EVER DAY USE - So 5 years ago I was NEVER someone who used supplements or took vitamins. Honestly just because I didn't know where to start. Also because it all seemed to take more time than I cared to give. The more I fell in love with fitness, nutrition, and everything else the more I really started to see the importance. So lets talk aging, loose skin, joint health ... as we age the more it becomes important. That is where COLLAGEN comes in. This one is a no brainer for me we all need it. My 3rd babe left me with extra skin something I had never experienced, I was also 5 years old but regardless after numerous hours researching everything led me back to collagen.
SUPERFOODS - This one is usually the most far fetched for people. I think commonly mis understood or assumed to be just a protein shake and its SO FAR from just a protein shake. I don't want to dive in too much because this one isn't for everyone and that is ok. If you have a shake you love then stick with it. However, if you are like me suffering from debilitating migraines, re-occurring kidney stones, ovarian cysts, and drastic blood sugar dips nutrition is SO important. Please keep in mind I am not a professional but someone who went from being on 4-5 meds just to function daily to falling in love with nutrition and realizing the extreme vitamin defficiency I was experience and no matter how many good foods I was eating I couldn't take in the vitamins needed on a daily basis. This is where Shakeology was an absolute GAME CHANGER for me. I have been using this daily for 5 years now. CLICK HERE!
WEIGHTS - So practically everyone who knows me in person or online knows home workouts are the name of my game (I will share below) Seriously they are my jam. I have 3 kids, 3 business's and BUSY is an understatement. I need something I can do from home and with that I need some basic equipment to get me the results I desire that also take up MINIMAL space. I love love love my select techs. Adjustable dumb bells save space, give you options, and convenience is everything. Every video I post someone messages me asking where I got my weights. I will say my ONE downfall I can see for others is if you have a workout partner at home with you, only one person was weights. Literally the only downside I see. Since convenience is important Amazon Prime (hello free shipping) If you don't have PRIME - CLICK HERE. If you want to snag the best weights ever CLICK HERE.
FITNESS PROGRAMS - This is my real JAM. Literally I have the honor of calling it my business. I coach women just like myself (busy women and mom's) everyday to help guide them through fitness and nutrition and THIS, this is a game changer.

BLENDER - Ok who would have ever dreamt there is a game changer blender!! HA. Seriously between being busy and always on the go I need a blender that can blend and also serve as the cup. The BEST part, we travel often and this baby is so compact I travel with it every trip we take!! This was a Mother's Day gift and seriously probably one of my FAVE gift's to date.
