Happy Friday!! Last night we were up in Salt Lake at a friend's concert, and didn't get back until pretty late, so I'm moving a little slower this morning. But hey, I'm not complaining because it's Friday ya'll
At-Home Baby Workout
When Piper was a little younger and slept like 80% of the time, I worked out from home while she napped. Now she takes 2 naps during the day and I need that time to work, clean etc., so I've been working out WITH her, and it's so much fun! She loves it. I was part of the #bouncebackwithyourbub challenge on Instagram, where me and 3 other mums took turns posting a different video from November 1-10th. There are so many different ways to work out with your baby, and they seem to love it! If you want more ideas, you can check out the hashtag.
I feel like Vital Proteins has gone viral over a lot of health-related Instagrams, and it's for a good reason! Collagen peptides are high in the amino acids that produce new collagen. Collagen is super important for your bones, joints, skin, hair, nails, muscles...literally everything! Luckily, I've always had lots of thick hair, so although postpartum hair loss still happened, I didn't notice it too much. Since taking collagen peptides, I've noticed my hair is growing back so fast in places I didn't even know I lost it. This product is unflavoured too, so you can mix it into anything and can't taste it! I mixed it in my protein pancakes the other morning and for some extra protein. **ps. this isn't a sponsored post by any means. I legitimately LOVE this product and am sharing it because I have found it so helpful!
Sweet Potato Bowls
Trust me, I know the sound of this is weird, but this combination is MONEY! Sweet potatoes are obvi a lil' sweeter, so I roast them with himalayan salt and cinnamon (to make them a lil' mo' sweeter), and they taste INCREDIBLE with fruit, greek yogurt (I use Siggis), and nut buttaaa. Trust me on this. Try it! Also, I picked up a jar of Wild Friend's gingerbread peanut butter at Sprouts on Monday and I AM IN LOVE. If you ever see a jar of this - BUY IT!
Alright, this isn't "health-related" or whatevs, but I took Piper to the park again this week and she loooooved the swing! It was so cute to see her little face light up with every push. Ugh. I can't handle this kid. She's too sweet. Also, she turned 6 months yesterday! Whhhhhhhaaaaaaattttt???
