Many people, not only pregnant women, struggle with stretchmarks. Pregnancy, however, makes our skin more vulnerable. Although, no single product guarantees stretchmarks prevention, it may be worth helping your skin to get more “elastic.” In addition, exercise at least 3-4 times a week, and drink lots, and LOTS of water! You have to stay healthy and well hydrated so your skin will benefit from it. Watch both videos, where I talk about products that I have used during all of my 3 pregnancies. You can find the links to creams and lotions in the description under the videos. I hope this will help.
Pelvic floor muscles are the muscles that support the pelvic organs and span the bottom of the pelvis. The pelvic organs in women are bladder, bowel and uterus. Pelvic floor muscle training exercises can help strengthen the muscles under those organs. Also, they play an important role in sexual function. Strengthening these muscles can reduce pelvic pain during sex and increase the ability of achieving pleasurable sensations. In addition, during pregnancy, pelvic floor muscles support the baby and assist in the birthing process. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause the pelvic floor muscles to weaken. When those muscles are weak, women cannot fully control the bladder, and that results in “wet” accidents, especially when we cough, sneeze or have a full bladder. Therefore, it is important to exercises pelvic floor before getting pregnant, or early in the pregnancy. Do this workout at least once a day! It’s only 5 min. Anyone can find 5 min, right? 😘

Whether you want to lose weight, get in shape, or tone up your body, you have to start somewhere, right? You must make a first step towards your goal, and many people do not know where to start and what to do. Here is my tip.
Start with an easy set of exercises. Select a workout that you can actually do, and you will enjoy doing. However, do not get comfortable with this for too long. After a week or two, chose a workout that is more difficult. Find something that will be challenging for you, meaning that the exercises should be hard for you to do, or the workout will be long enough to exhaust you. Also, using weights adds the level of difficulty. Once you challenge yourself, and your body faces those challenges, your body will begin to change. You will notice visible changes, your body will start getting firmer, your clothes will fit better, and you will feel happier! Overall, you will have more energy to do other things with enthusiasm. When this happens, the motivation for future workouts will burst from you, and exercising will become part of your daily routines like brushing your teeth, showering, or doing makeup. But do not select too advanced workouts or exercises that you will hate doing. It will discourage you. Moreover, find an instructor who motivates and supports you.
Exercises alone will not do magic. You must eat right and healthy. Healthy diet is an excessive topic. You can find a lot of information here on my blog. Bottom line, you should educate your self about fats, carbs and protein, and implement your knowledge into your daily meals . Remember, no matter how hard you exercises, you will not see results of your sweat if you do not eat right!!! I think eating is the hardest part because people cannot break bad habits of eating junk, overeating or drinking sugary beverages!
Good news: there is still enough time to lose weight and jump into your bikini with confidence before summer arrives!
Hi! I Went to the beach the other day to shoot a workout video, but it turned out to be a very windy day. I debated whether I should film anything because of the wind and the sound interference. Finally, I decided to film a workout without narration, and this video is the product of my decision. If you follow my blog and YouTube channel, then you know that I usually talk a lot. Therefore, workout video without any words just feels odd. Nevertheless, let me know what you think of it, and how do you like workout videos without comments.
Is your body ready for summer? Mine sure is not.
I had a really hard time this past 4 years. Finishing law school and raising kids at the same time did not leave much room for taking care of myself. Even writing this blog had to stop temporarily.
But everything is about to change now. I will try to continue writing – hopefully more frequently. However, I’m older, more open minded, and thus, I have a different approach to fitness, life and happiness.
I know that summer is approaching quickly and there is work that needs to be done. I know exactly what I need to do.
Please visit this blog in a few days, and you will share with you my workouts!
