Did you know that May is Women's Health Month? Because I definitely didn't. 😅 With this sweet babe growing in my belly, my personal health has been made even more of a priority than it has been in the past. Typically talking health + wellness wouldn't be high on my list of things to blog / chat with you guys about, but when Babbleboxx reached out and wanted to share some new products centered around being healthy, I thought it would be a fun way to broaden my horizons in a world I haven't really tapped into yet! Here's the scoop on a few things they sent my way, and hopefully these products will inspire you to take a step towards living a healthier lifestyle!
EAT WELL WITH HEALTHY CHOICE
For some reason when I dreamt of working from home, I had it in my mind that I was going to make myself really awesome home cooked lunches everyday ... Well, that lasted about a week! Wishful thinking, right? 😂 I was so excited to try these new Healthy Choice Power Bowls. They're made with a combination of veggies, whole grains, and high protein ingredients (over 16 grams in every bowl! 🙌) which had me sold before I even tried it! I often find myself in the middle of days like I had yesterday where I'm feeling good, getting a ton done, and the last thing I want to do is stop to make myself a healthy lunch. The next best thing is ordering in, right? Or so I thought. After trying out this Healthy Choice Power Bowl, I'll definitely be heading to my freezer instead of reaching for my phone for lunch!
DISCOVER YOUR BACKGROUND WITH 23 and me
I don't know about you, but I've never really known a lot about my background or where my family comes from. I know that there's German, French and Native American somewhere in my blood, but I've always been curious as to the exact numbers behind it (which is totally weird coming from the girl who hates anything to do with numbers). 🙈 This Ancestry kit from 23andMe was definitely mine (and Sean's!) favorite thing that I received in my Babbleboxx! Sean asked me several times if there was enough for both of us so I have a feeling we'll be picking up an extra one for him to try, too. I think it'll be so awesome to know exactly where we come from, and to be able to share those details with our kids someday!
KEEP TRACK WITH MIO
The first thing that I've done in a while to be mindful about my health is to invest in a really great activity tracker. Since I already have a tracker of my own built into my Apple Watch that I shared with you guys, I'm so stoked to be able to gift this Mio SLICE Heart Rate + Activity Tracker to my little sister to use on a daily basis. One of the things that I really love about the Mio Tracker, and one of the features I'm totally jealous that my watch doesn't include, is that it gives you goals and tracks your progress using PAI technology. Basically what that means is that it uses your age, gender, resting, and active heart rates to determine how it's tracking your activity level. It's seriously a game changer!
CHANGE UP YOUR DAILY ROUTINE WITH ARM & HAMMER
Fellow mommas ... did your gums just go nuts when you were pregnant!? Over the last couple of months, my teeth and gums have gotten crazy sensitive. I've been searching for a toothpaste to help strengthen my gums, and that's where this Arm & Hammer PeroxiCare comes in! I had no idea that this was even a thing, and I'm so thankful that it happened to be included in my Women's Health box! I've been using it for about a week now, and I was really surprised by how gentle the baking soda treats my teeth. I can actually feel it working when it foams up, and I'm already seeing a huge difference in the sensitivity of my gums.
