Sweating for Two: Pregnancy Workout Tips We’re expecting! Either will do pink or blue! Well, were not all expecting, but our designer, Becca, is and we couldn’t be more excited for her and her growing family! Already a Mom to her sweet girl, Mallory, Becca knows she has to live a healthy lifestyle not just for her, but her for both her youngin’s and husband. When it comes to pregnancy priorities, working out and getting your steps in come in a distant second to kicking up your swollen feet and relaxing. Surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly to some of you, exercise helps fight fatigue, ensure a better night’s sleep, and improve your overall experience with your bun in the oven. I’m sure the last thing you want to do while pregnant is look for some exercises that you are allowed to do while pregnant. Take some advice from our mother to be, Becca who discovered totally doable, pregnancy fitness routines that worked for her.
If you celebrated St. Patrick's Day in style, chances are you're feeling a little groggy and over-served this morning. No judgement here! Instead, we're going to help you out by letting you in on our favorite tool for feeling lean and clean, even after the wildest nights: our signature Detox Water! We swear by it, and are pretty sure you will too after following these (insanely easy) steps. Happy detoxing! 1. STOCK UP -Mint leaves (we bought a package, but in the summer we love pulling them straight from the garden!) -1 - 2 limes -1 large cucumber -Sharp knife, juicer, and large pitcher 2. CHOP IT LIKE IT'S HOT -Cut cucumber into fourths and chop 1/2 - 1" wide slices -Cut stems off mint and thinly dice -Halve limes 3. GET IT JUICY -Juice the lime halves then add the halves in the pitcher -Add cucumber and mint 4. FILL 'ER UP -Fill your pitcher with water (we suggest using cold, filtered H2O & wearing this Motion of the Ocean Sweaty Band while you do it because we're fancy like that) -Give it a few vigorous stirs (added bonus of an arm workout here!) -Remove lime halves 5. ENJOY! -If you've washed out last night's pint glasses, now's the time to put them to use again! Pour in, and add ice as desired -Sit back, relax, and enjoy the full-body rejuvenation about to go down (again, feels even better when done wearing this gorgeous Sweaty Band) -Once you've finished off your glass, munch on the mint leaves and cucumbers for some added nutrition + digestive aids! ...see, wasn't that easy and delicious?! Do you feel as detoxed, refreshed, and ready to conquer the day as we do?! Cheers!
We first met women's tennis star (and Sweaty Bands fanatic) Bethanie Mattek-Sands years ago at the Cincinnati Western & Southern Open, and have followed her career ever since. After struggling with injury for the past few seasons, we were thrilled to see her take the Australian Open women's doubles title with partner Lucie Safarova this weekend! She is always a badass, but has taken it to the next level by winning it all despite never having played OR practiced with Safarova before the tournament. Who needs practice anyway?! Watch their interview and read more about our favorite tennis superstar's big win below!
