Ever since baby number two came along, life’s been, well, a little more hectic. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change one thing, but motherhood definitely has its challenges. I’d say one of the biggest challenges I’ve faced since giving birth to my first born, Sophie, has been my overall health and fitness routine.
Pre-kids, I used to go to Yoga on the regular, cook healthy meals at least five times a week, and overall, take better care of my mind and body. These days, my calorie burning is breastfeeding and chasing around my toddler and my meals, for the most part, include leftover mac n cheese and Pirate’s Booty. Yup, probably not the best case scenario, but things could be worse, right.
Hitting the Reset Button
A little over a month ago, I hit a wall. Understandably, I was constantly worn out from balancing a career, a baby and a toddler, a marriage, and a social life. I’ll admit, I had a little “Come to Jesus” moment while laying in bed after yet another chaotic day, and I decided to take control over my health and well-being again. Just because I had to take care of my children, didn’t mean I had to stop taking care of myself. So, I made a commitment to turn a new leaf, and start a new health and fitness regimen, but it had to be realistic. No juice cleanses, no two-a-day workouts, and no calorie counting. Let’s just say, I’m hitting my body’s reset button.
Prior to starting my new regimen, I heard about a new product, DDOT Supplements, something that could help kickstart my healthy lifestyle and get my mind and body back on track. This isn’t a weight loss pill, just a healthy detox supplement meant to cleanse and “reset” your body.
Once I learned about all the benefits and how easy it was to fit into my daily routine, I was in. After taking it the first week, I was already seeing and feeling the benefits, so naturally, I was hooked!
Here’s how it works:
Take just 2 pills in the morning with breakfast. Be sure to wash it down with 10-12 oz of water. If you’re not a breakfast person like me, this might be a slight adjustment. However, I’ve actually noticed how much more energy I’ve had mid-morning, even with just a small breakfast. I like to spread some almond butter on a toasted bagel or put some fresh fruit in some oatmeal, that usually does the trick. Oh, and coffee, of course, can’t live without that!
Once you take your two pills in the morning, you’re good to go! That’s the easy part. This is something that I could realistically add to my crazy, daily schedule for just 30 days. And this isn’t something you need to do regularly, you can do a month long detox just 2-4 times a year, to keep digestion regulated to maximum potential. I love this because it prevents build up and storage in the digestive system, which can cause bloating, something I don’t need this Summer. 🙂
Here’s a few other highlights of DDOT Supplements:
– It’s easy on the stomach. I’ve always had a sensitive stomach, so this was a plus for me!
– It cleanses your kidney, liver, colon, gallbladder and digestive tract (Gallbladder is extremely important because it controls and regulates cholesterol levels).
– It promotes weight loss.
– It helps with clearing up skin by eliminating toxins.
– It promotes natural, sustainable energy, something every mom and dad needs!
– It improves blood pressure.
– It promotes better sleep, yes please!
– And did I mention MORE ENERGY?
– It’s great for any athletic level, whether you work out once or seven times a week.
– It’s more effective being a mild detox over a long period of time opposed to a short 2-7 day detox that shocks the body for a short period of time.
– I prefer the pill form DETOX as you don’t lose eating whole foods like you would on a juice cleanse. I’ll be real, I can’t drink my meals for days on end, I need whole food!
After taking DDOT for a whole month in addition to eating better and fitting in a workout 1-2 times a week, I feel like a whole new person. The energy boost I’ve experienced is unreal. I can get through an entire day filled with meetings, dance classes, school functions, and still have enough energy to cook a healthy meal and squeeze in a 20 minute workout. I’ve also been feeling way less-bloated and not as scared to get into a bikini at the lake this Summer!
If you’re interested in kick starting your health and fitness lifestyle like I did, I highly recommend DDOT Supplements. I also recommend doing it with a partner, I had my husband Kyle take the detox with me. It was great to have a partner for support and to hold each other accountable. You can order 1 bottle for $35 or 2 bottles for $55.
