Should You Join A Gym-the Pros and Cons

Thinking about joining a gym? There are pros and cons to joining a gym, and it is up to you to decide why you should join a gym or why you should not join a gym.

Getting Toddlers to Eat Veggies

I have finally found a way to get my kids their vegetables!! 

I’ve struggled with my son, who is a picky eater, for many years on ways to get him his vegetables. When he began eating real food as a toddler, I could not get him to eat his vegetables so I tried everything including juicing, but I just couldn’t get him to eat his vegetables.

Many of you know I love Shakeology, and sometimes I could get my son to drink a shake, but he doesn’t always like the thickness of it . We also had an amazing pediatrician approved drink called Daily Sunshine that he will drink sometimes, but he doesn’t always seem to like milk.

The idea came to me as I was making my Shakeology one morning.  Knowing I wasn’t going to get all my vegetables in for the day, I added a Power Greens Boost, which is a great way to get all of those green veggies full of all the nutrients your body needs. I decided I was going to try it with my picky eater son.

I decided to sprinkle some of the Power Greens Boost into a sugar free drink after his nap to see if he would notice anything different.  He didn’t even notice and I know he is getting his veggies.

This is super affordable and a great way to make sure your kids are getting their vegetables.  Shoot me a message at holly.hierman@gmail.com

Why I Drink a Post Workout Drink

Do you ever get sore muscles or need to know how to get rid of sore muscles? Or maybe you want to know how to prevent soreness after a workout?

I I’ve been drinking the best post-workout recovery drink from Beachbody called Recover after my workouts for about a year now and love it. Not only do both the orange and chocolate taste delicious, but it prevents sore muscles after a workout.

The other day after my workout I didn’t have my post workout drink and within hours my muscles began to get stiff and sore. I knew that one of the benefits was that it decreased muscle soreness, but the other benefit is that it gives your body exactly what it needs to repair your muscles quicker so that you can continue on with your workouts the next day. It’s more than just about being sore it is about making sure your muscles have recovered.

Whatever fitness goals you have, whether you want to prevent sore muscles, get stronger, boost your metabolism or maximize weight loss, drinking Recover, the best muscle recovery supplement, will help you achieve results.
