Our healthy choices, workout routines, and clean eating can be really overwhelming, especially in the beginning. Often times we can't even find a way to start while sometimes we can make a plan for a week or two to get right back to where we were getting to classes again, meal prepping, waking up early for our magic mornings... but then a slight breeze (or lack there of) knocks the wind out of our sails and we fall back into a routine full of quick and junky meals and skipped workouts.

If you're not a runner and have no desire to become one, many races love to have walkers but even then, there is often a minimum mile pace around 15min/mi which means you need to step up your stepping and make even your walking movement as efficient as possible.

Let's talk about Diastasis Recti:
Diastasis Recti is a pretty common condition that can occur during pregnancy, after birth, or can even be caused by rapid weight gain or a large amount of visceral fat. The right and left sides of the Rectus Abdominis (what you know as your abs) muscle spread apart at the body’s midline causing a gap of 2 or more finger widths apart. This interrupts the integrity of the abdominal muscles.
