As we’re in the thick of holiday parties & Christmas cooking, who else is thinking about dietary & fitness changes they’ll make in 2018? I’m making a conscious choice to indulge now, because 1.) I’m pregnant and giving myself permission to enjoy whatever I want and 2.) it’s the holiday season — my approach is not to restrain myself completely but enjoy all the sweets & dips in moderation. However, I am already feeling that need to get back into a more disciplined lifestyle after the holiday season winds down. Plus, in anticipation of the birth of my son, I know prioritizing healthy eating/sleeping/exercise is huge in postpartum recovery. Here are some things I’m prepping with:

Local Yoga Gear: I’ve found a new mom-friendly yoga apparel brand that I love! Based out of New Braunfels, TX, Salty Unicorn Brand is a unique apparel line that focuses on Moms, Yoga and Texas and is proud to announce it’s new line of Texas yoga tanks and tees just in time for the holiday season. The company prides itself on crafting unique one-of-a-kind Texas and Mom-centric yoga goodies. Salty Unicorn has been producing shirts for moms since 2016, and after seeing the impact made through the Mamaste: the mom in me honors the mom in you campaign, the company decided to foster that same community connection through another unifier, Texas.Salty Unicorn

Protein in my purse: Have y’all tried thinkThin bars? I’m really picky about my protein bars (I gag on most of them!) but these are so yummy and high in protein content! Right now, they’ve brought back their seasonal flavor offerings for a limited time, including top-seller Pumpkin Spice, with notes of pumpkin spice, cinnamon & white chocolate. Alongside the fan-favorite flavor, they’re also offering Dark Chocolate Peppermint. Each seasonally inspired Protein & Fiber Bar provides 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber in an individually wrapped 150-calorie bar. thinkThin
