Beach Girl Bands

BEACHGIRL Bands

Do you have untamable baby hairs or fly aways you just can’t seem to get out of your face? Ugh, both Gabbi and I do and it drives us CRAZY!

GBB4

Gabbi has a whole row of baby hairs right at her forehead and those darn hairs are totally untamable, especially during gymnastics practice! It doesn’t matter how tight I make a braid or how much gel/ hairspray I use, those little stinkers seem to always end up in her eyes! What’s a mama to do?

Become a BeachGirl! I know, you’re probably thinking “um what? How’s that going to help?” Ha! It will, I promise! Beach Girl Bands are a line of the cutest adjustable and non slip headbands!

To get the full effect of how awesome these headband are and help Gabbi untamable baby hairs, here is a before and after photo

Awesome right?

Beach Girl Bands have saved the day from crazy baby hairs and prevented irritated eyes & mama frustration! They have become Gabbi’s favorite accessory, and I know we will be getting more…and more…and more!

GBB3

GBBThese headbands are AMAZING! Gabbi wore her polka dot headband to a 2 hour practice the other night. I did her hair about 2 -3 hours before we left the house, she NEVER once adjusted it. She took it off right before bed and not one single baby hair had snuck out in to her forehead! Seriously I couldn’t believe it! We are 100% in love with these head bands! We will be stocking up on these babies! Her headband went on at about 2pm and came off at about 10:30pm!!! Now that’s some serious staying power!

One things that really sets Beach Girl Bands apart from the rest is that they are size adjustable {fitting between 19-22!} Making these perfect for children and adults {all my runners out there, Beach Girl Bands will be perfect for you!} The adjustable sizing also means no more too tight headbands…we’ve all been there and we’ve all suffered that horrible headache that comes with it! GBB2Beach Girl Bands are non slip as well so no more adjusting your headband a million times a day, making Beach Girl Bands perfect for ANYTHING Shopping, Relaxing at beach or pool, Gymnastics (of course), Running, Hiking, and pretty much any sport or activity you can think of! Oh, and they are machine washable!! Yay no more stinky sweaty headbands!

Beach Girl Bands come in a ton of different patterns and styles so you are sure to find he perfect headbands for your personality!

Here are some of our favorites:

These shoes are made for walking…

I know it may seem SO incredibly basic but walking is one of my all time favorite workouts! My husband and I go on nightly walks together and we love it, we talk about the day, up coming plans and our kiddos. We walk about 2.5 miles every night and its fantastic and we love it! I always try to encourage my friends who are trying to get into a workout habit to start walking! Plus, you don’t have to buy any special equipment!

I was beyond thrilled to find this awesome Bowflex 30 Walking Challenge! This makes it so easy to get into the habit of walking! Happy walking my friends!

30 Day Challenge Printable Pack {FREE}

Oops!! This post was scheduled for July 1st {and the Gettin Fit with Brit announcement}, clearly that didn’t happen. Instead of waiting until August I decided to go ahead and post any way!

If you are thinking that this looks familiar you are right two years ago I started the 30 Day Challenge printable to help me and many other busy moms {and dad} have a clearly printed workout schedule. This is a revival and there will be additions coming soon!

30 Day Challenge Pack

Unfortunately over the last 18 months there have been many personal ups and downs and I totally and completely lost my momentum and encouragement. I have gain 15lbs  and ENOUGH is ENOUGH, I do not feel good about my self at all…not just appearance but motivation and energy. Please Join me in these 30 Challenges! I will post bi-weekly updates!

Each challenge starts at with minimal repetitions on day 1 and increases daily. For advanced more reps can be added to each day or do each challenge twice, once in the morning and once in the evening making each challenge more advanced.

Included in each 30 day challenge printable packet:

  • Squat Challenge
  • Torso Twist Challenge
  • Crunch Challenge
  • Plank Challenge
  • Bicep Curl Challenge
  • Donkey Kick Challenge
  • Jumping Jack Challenge
  • Burpee Challenge
  • Kettlebell Swing Challenge
  • Mountain Climber Challenge
  • Tricep Kickback Challenge
  • Push-up Challenge
  • Hydration Challenge
  • 10,000 Steps Challenge
  • Weight Loss Tracker

One of the things that I really love about this packet is that it is so easy to customize! Print the whole pack or just a few pages! Each page is colorful and easy to read! The pages can be printed and put on a bulletin board or in a binder OR since it is in pdf format you can just keep it on your desktop, tablet or phone and open it when needed {ibooks is great!}

Subscribe now to The Life in Bloom and DOWNLOAD the 30 Day Challenge packet for FREE for the month of March

Reader Questions:

Rhonda: Q: “So where did the idea for this packet come from?”

Brit: A: “I created this printable pack for my self because I felt like I was so busy all the time and I just wanted something that was fairly hardcore {meaning cover all or as many muscle groups as possible!} Plus get cardio, steps and water consumption!”

Sandy: Q: “Was this created for a particular age or fitness level?

Brit:: A: “No! This is for all ages and fitness levels. So far this pack it has been a hit college students and busy moms {and dads} on the go! It’s also perfect for those who spend a lot of time in the office or traveling, just print out the entire packet {or the workout you want to do} put it in a folder and take it everywhere you go! Each exercise is extremely easy to do on the go with minimal equipment!”

Danielle: Q: “What size of Dumbbells should I use?”

Brit: A: “Great question! You need to use what you are comfortable with! If you use 5 lb dumbbells stick to those {or the weight you use} and increase when you feel comfortable. Don’t increase until you are ready to prevent injury”

Carly: Q: “I’ve never used a Kettlebell before, what weight would you recommend?”

Brit: A: “If you have never used a kettlebell I personally recommend starting with a lighter one. The weight in Kettlebells is distributed quite a bit different then how it is in  dumbbells. So to prevent injury I would suggest starting with a 5lb or 10lb and work your way up to a heavier one. I recommend the Tone Fitness set this is a GREAT starter set and includes 3 kettlebells {5lb, 10lb, 15lb}”
I really hope you all enjoy this principle packed so much and if you have any suggestions for workouts to be added to this pack please let me know either comment or email me! I’d love to hear from you!

Pinterest Favorites {Arm Workouts}

I’ve had such a huge response to my Pinterest WOD series that I decided to continue it!

pf

If you’re like me and often scroll through Pinterests fitness boards, then you know there are a TON of workouts for every fitness level and every fitness interest!

Over the next couple weeks I’m going to share some of my most favorite Pinterest workouts by category…you know abs, legs, etc.

Today I decided to start with arm workouts that I have enjoyed!

Always remember:

  • Push your body, but know your boundaries make sure all workouts are being done safely.
  • Increase or decrease the weight based on you fitness level
  • Increase or decrease reps to fit your fitness level

This workout is my absolute favorite arm workout, its super quick but you will feel the BURN!

What I love about arm work outs is that you can do them any where at any time! Seriously, you can even get a good workout in during your favorite tv show.
