Vitamin Shoppe Haul & Supplement Review | Mommy Muscles | Postpartum Weight Loss

by - May 28, 2018

As many of you may already know I have been working hard on my postpartum fitness and weight loss journey. If you are not following along with my Mommy Muscles blog & video series feel free to do so here.  I am currently down between 12 - 15 pounds since I started in March. Even though I may have a lot of ups and downs in my motivation, I am happy with the process I've made. Not quite on my goal but I am trying to not beat myself up over it. With that weight loss I am down an entire pant size in my favorite Zyia Activewear from a medium to a small and on the rare occasion I do wear jeans they fit me a little nicer. One of the most important things to remember in any fitness journey and something I try to constantly remind myself of is that it takes time, determination and patience.

Progress will never happen over night and as this is a postpartum fitness and weight loss journey I have the added struggles of stubborn mommy problem areas and the normal hormonal fluctuation due to a woman's monthly cycle.

During my time of the month I  don't stick to a strict diet and I am a little more lenient on my workouts. As I struggle with PCOS I like to relax and give my body a break during my "time of the month" and focus more on relieving the symptoms that come with my condition. To help me along in my efforts to lose weight and become a more fit mommy Vitamin Shoppe sent me a gift card to use towards the purchase of any health related vitamins and supplements! I want to give a huge thank you to Vitamin Shoppe for supporting me along my journey and giving me the boost in motivation I needed this month! Summer is coming and here are some of the products I ordered online from Vitamin Shoppe to aid in my Mommy Muscles results.

Olly The Perfect Women's Multi-Vitamin Blissful Dietary Supplement Gummies - Berry - 90ct - image 1 of 4Olly Women's Multi - Blissful Berry
I am not a total fan of taking pills so any chance I can get a gummy or chewable in exchange for a pill I am all game! These little gummies taste so good and are packed with vitamins such as A, C, D, E, B's, Biotin & Folic Acid. I have been hearing people and influencers rave about these vita gummies for a while and now I finally now what all the hype is about!

Vitamin Shoppe Iron Complex 
Iron is often recommended for women who are pregnant, nursing, postpartum, or struggle with menstrual cycles. Some other common reasons you may want to consider adding iron into your diet is if you often times feel fatigued, weak, have trouble concentrating, or you have a strong fitness routine. I have encountered some of these symptoms and don't always have a diet rich in iron so as I was pursuing the Vitamin Shoppe website I was quick to click add to cart. I actually purchased two bottles of this on accident.

Throughout my research I have come across CLA or conjugated linoleic acid as it is more medically known and the benefits it brings along with a weight loss journey. CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid, similar to an omega-6 fatty acid but with health benefits for skin and weight loss. It's one of the "good fats," present in foods such as beef and dairy products, but only in low levels. When I saw this on the online shop I instantly clicked on it curious to read the description. With the benefits of CLA this Ab Cuts formula helps to reduce fat in the belly, hips, thighs, and midsection of the supplement user! So basically this is the perfect mommy CLA supplement. I have been using for about 2 weeks and love it.

Probiotics are a very popular supplement and you'll find them to be very highly recommended as you dive deeper into research on health and weight loss. Probiotics are beneficial or "good bacteria" that normally inhabit the large and small intestines. A healthy balance of probiotics can help inhibit the overgrowth of harmful bacteria. This balance may help support good digestion and regularity. Ultimate 10 probiotic from Vitamin Shoppe can help re-colonize good bacteria, strengthening the body's own defenses. This will aid in digestive and intestinal health, while naturally boosting the body's immune system.
