Healthy Lunch Ideas
One of the most common strategies that I give to my clients when discussing meal planning is to plan ahead (go figure right)! The easiest way to do this is to make your lunch the night before. This is important for everyone regardless of if you go to work or not…yup, mommies this is for you too!
Identifying Pelvic Floor Tightness
So we all know to do our kegels to help strengthen weak pelvic floor muscles, especially after pregnancy. But did you know that it is possible to have pelvic floor muscles that are too tight? This tightness or ‘hypertonicity’ can also cause pelvic floor dysfunction and is more common than you think. It is possible to have tight AND weak pelvic floor muscles, which can lead to postpartum issues such as incontinence and pelvic pain.
What causes tight pelvic floor muscles?
Some contributing factors include
- Pelvic joint instability
- Improper back and pelvic alignment
- Core and pelvic floor exercise (too many kegels!)
- Repetitive daily activities
- Poor posture
Any of this sounds familiar?
So I was lucky enough to try an item from Prana’s new line of fall athletic wear! So let me preface this with a) I LOVE fall clothes, I love layers, and scarves, and boots and anything that looks cozy and warm. Unfortunately in California we don’t get to wear these clothes until November, but it’s still my favorite wardrobe.
So when I got the chance to try out these new pants my first thought was…. Eeek…convertible pants? What are we in grade school wearing tear-aways again? ‘(If you can figure out how old I am from that comment you get bonus points). Regardless, I am happy to say that I was very surprised with how much I love these pants!!
