Warmer Weather Means Active Time!

SPRING HAS SPRUNG!


Wow!! I love living in a place with 4 seasons, but I’ll admit that I’m ready for some warmer weather!

We have been getting outside the last few days and the girls have been BEGGING us to take them to play tennis. Today was so beautiful, we couldn’t say no!

It brought back so many memories for me… I know my mom would have been excited to see the girls play.

When we were taking a break, I tried a brand new product I just discovered. Spoiler alert, it was AMAZING!

6 MUST Haves for New Moms [+ One Week Post Partum Update]

I can’t believe my little guy is a week old already!

I didn’t really think about the fact that having a baby over 5 years from my last would mean some different products and options would be out there. I wanted to share some of my FAVORITE things that I didn’t have during my last delivery that made so much difference this time!

Here’s My Top 6 Picks for New Mommies!

? One Week Post Partum Update ? My Top 7 Picks for New Mommies ✅

Posted by Angela Roshto Parker on Monday, December 3, 2018

 

Here’s The Breakdown!

 

6 Must Have Items for New Mommies

 

 

After Ease Supplement: Helps naturally manage your afterbirth pains. I had a lot of afterbirth pain with my second baby, so I wanted to try something this time for it. This made SO MUCH difference! I had to use very little pain medication thanks to this.

 

Soothie Gel Pads: Definitely getting started nursing again after 5 odd years was a little painful! These soothing gel pads are so helpful in between

 

Lily Pads: Silicon nipple shield helps ensure you don’t leak as well as protecting against rubbing against your clothes. These have been super useful!

 

Probiotics: I struggled with constipation during the pregnancy and afterwards on all of my births, so I wanted to stay on top of it this time. Thankfully I found a great probiotic with multiple strains that really helped keep things moving for me! Even better, probiotics help keep my immune system healthy during the recovery and I am able to pass some of these onto my baby too, so yay!

 

Chocolate Greens: We all need good vitamins and minerals, especially during a recovery! I wish I had had a great green superfood blend 5 years ago, these are my go to morning products along with…

 

Keto Creamer: This creamer is great in coffee, tea, smoothies, and Keto Hot Chocolate! It’s full of healthy fats and collagen to help my skin rebound as well as make sure I’m not getting hungry (without having to pig out).

 

And at least in my case, my girl are my #7! Having them has really changed this whole process, I’ll be making a full post about it soon 🙂

 

What were your favorite things that helped during your first few weeks with a new baby?

How Having a Natural Birth Prepared Me For Starting My Own Business

Natural Birth & Starting a Business…

 

Those two aren’t often seen as going hand in hand… right?

But when I had my first baby… something changed inside me

Going through that process taught me some lessons that prepared me for when I started working from home a few years later.

 

If you are interested in learning more about having a natural labor and birth experience,
check out my latest E-Book!

 

Here’s my top Three Things I learned

 

It’s okay to look crazy.

 

See… I learned it was okay to do what I wanted even if everyone else thought I was crazy

I didn’t know anyone who had planned a home birth before when I was pregnant with Aidalyn… but after doing research, I knew that was the experience I wanted.

I knew that to get what I really wanted… I was not going to be considered “normal” – But normal is boring anyways

With my business, I knew I may get some crazy looks or have some people think I was crazy.

But after 4 years of doing this, I’m so thankful that I didn’t let what other people’s opinions of me stop me from accomplishing all that we have!

Quitting our jobs, moving closer to home, finding our purpose, helping families all over the world live better and find financial freedom  and that’s just the beginning

 

Always invest in yourself.

 

This was one area I had ZERO experience… I knew that I was going to have to learn all that I could and that’s what I did!

It was okay to not know everything when I started… but I didn’t have to stay that way.

I read a lot of books.
I watched documentaries.
I took classes.

I learned that birth – and natural birth – is sometimes such a mental game. And I was going to need to go in prepared…

With my business… I was the same way. I had zero experience – but I knew I could learn a new skill!

Anything you want to do your best in, you gotta invest in yourself

 

Know the power of having a great & supportive team.

 

I knew that if I was going to face labor… knowing it was not going to be all rainbows and roses

I would need a team to support me and keep me accountable for the experience I wanted… even if I wanted to quit at times.

Yes, I yelled “I NEED A BREAK” at one point  and I’m thankful my midwife was right there to help me through.

With my business… like anything… there are ups and downs.

There are AMAZING days…

and days you need a team to say “You got this!” “Your dreams are worth it!” “It starts with one!”

I’m so thankful for the team and support I have with my business. Because I may be in business for myself, but I’m never by myself. – and neither would you

 

 

Listen, there’s never a “perfect time” to start something new.. but NOW would be a GOOD time to jump. 

I work our health + wellness business completely from social media and LOVE every minute of it!!

Right now, I can show you how to do what I do to earn an income from anywhere… and get started for only $20 

I only have a few of these discount codes available! If you’re interested, shoot me a message with the word “CODE” and I’ll get you your discount! read more

How to Fail Forward and NEVER be Scared of Failing Again

The only way for us to learn is through failing over and over… Failing forward is the pathway to success. So instead of being scared of failing… be more scared of not improving or never trying. Let’s fail forward together.

 

Watch the Video Now:

 

 

We took the girls skating the other day – It was both our girls first time skating ever!

Learning how to do something new can be frustrating…

Because you aren’t that great at first… And honestly you are going to fall down a lot.

 

There were some tears.

 

But then we taught Aidalyn to celebrate every fall because it meant she was trying and getting better with each fall.

 

She was falling forward.

 

Don’t forget that even as adults, we need to take chances and try new things.

 

We need to fail and fail often. If we are failing, it means we are getting closer to our win.

 

What have you failed at recently??

What have you learned?

How are you better?

Pro Tip:  If you want to make a habit, you need to be consistent for at least 21 days! Our FIT SUMMER CHALLENGE will set you up for success!!

Okay so how do you make drinking water a habit?

Because yesterday we learned WHY we need to drink enough water every day…

 

4 Tips to Make Drinking Water a Habit

Always carry it with you

Just having a water bottle within reach makes it WAY more likely that you will drink water throughout the day. So a habit would be to throw a water bottle in your purse, have it in the car, on your desk – then there is no excuse!

 

Sip water before your meals and snacks

Hunger cues and thirst cues are so similar to our bodies… it can sometimes get confused! So a great tip is to ALWAYS drink a cup of water before you eat any snack or meal.

This will help make sure you are satisfying your thirst – and make sure you are getting all the water in you need each day too.

 

Drink water after each bathroom break

Tying drinking water to something you are already doing is KEY to being successful at making it a habit. So what is something you do every single day??

Go to the bathroom!

After you get done with your bathroom break, drink a cup of water to re-hydrate and help you get in all the water you need throughout the day.

 

Use an app to remind you to drink water

Tomorrow I’ll share more specific apps you can try and see which works best for you. While you are laying down a new habit, it is OKAY to need that reminder! It won’t be second nature yet.

Before long, you won’t need a reminder to drink!

 

Use a marked water bottle to keep track

I have been using a marked water bottle for the past 10 years or so to make sure I am drinking water throughout the day and staying hydrated!

This is probably my favorite and you can grab it on Amazon!

After you hit your daily goal, don’t forget to reward yourself. (Maybe a relaxing facial!)

 

 

Remember, you are ONLY as healthy as your daily habit!

Four Simple Ways to Drink MORE Water; Even if You Don’t Like Drinking Water!

It’s DAY ONE of my month long Fit Summer Challenge! I’ll be sharing daily content on Grassfedmama.com as well as my personal Facebook Page on how to not lose your momentum during the summer, while still enjoying yourself!

 

This week we are focusing on water, and today specifically WHY you want to drink more water!

PLUS FOUR ways to trick yourself into drinking more H2O {even when you don’t like water }

 

https://www.facebook.com/angela.r.parker/videos/10103275820426880/

 

Why do we need water?

Our bodies need water to function!

Did you know that our bodies are made of 75% of water? Every cell in your body need water to function properly!

 

You will have more energy when you are hydrated

You wouldn’t believe how many people reach out to me asking for help with energy. When one of the simplest ways to energize is just to make sure you have enough water.

 

You will Boost Your Metabolism

Because your body will have the water it needs, it will be able to work more efficiently, and that means a BOOST in your metabolism (and ability to burn more calories too!)

 

Water is an Easy Detox

I actually am not scared of the word “DETOX” but I know a lot of people squirm in their seats when they hear the word because they think it has to be harsh (or have bad side effects!)

But detoxing is just your bodies natural process of getting rid of anything that it doesn’t need.

 

Our kidneys are designed to help our bodies get rid of excess through our urine… but you need to make sure you are hydrated too!

 

Another way we detox is through our skin – YES, our SKIN!! 

 

Every time you sweat you are helping your body naturally detox… but the more you sweat, the more you need to replenish the water you are losing.

 

“So Remember… Water, Water, You have to Drink Way More Water than You Think!”

 

Drinking Water Helps with Misread Hunger Cues

Our body can get confused easily… between feeling thirsty and hungry – it really has trouble telling the difference.

 

If you are trying to limit your calories, or watch your portions, one easy way to start is just by drinking a large glass of water before your meals and snacks. This will help you not to overeat and make sure you are filling the need for thirst first!

 

 

What if I don’t like the taste of water?!?!

 

4 Ways to Add Flavor to Your Water

Fruit Infused Water is a great way to get a fruity taste with all the benefits of water! There are special fruit infused water bottles – or you can just fill a large pitcher of water with a few pieces of fruit and let sit overnight. You will LOVE all the combinations you find!

I love cucumber, mint, and lemon!

The Day I Failed My Gestational Diabetes Test

8 years ago… I was in my second trimester of my first pregnancy…

Everything was going well…

until I was 28 weeks and went for my gestational diabetes screening test.

 

I thought “I’m the healthiest person I know!” I got this!

 

But when my results came back that I had failed…

I was crushed.

I was shocked.

I felt all alone.

 

I needed a plan, but I honestly didn’t have any support system set up for myself.

All the recipes I had were “healthy” but used grains, beans, fruits, starchy vegetables.

 

Nothing I normally ate or cooked would work anymore.

 

I sat at the kitchen table every night for two weeks and cried.

 

Thankfully, now I have some (actually good!) low carb meals on the plan!

 

This week (I’m 16 weeks pregnant now with my third baby), as I was sitting down at the table… instead of crying, I was meal planning.

 

And it made me think… what is different here? 

 

I’m in the same situation (albeit 8 years later!) and I possibly have the same diagnosis as I did 8 years ago, but this time…

I feel empowered.

I feel prepared.

I feel healthy. 

 

On my piece of paper I wrote:

> Low Carb Tacos
> Guacamole & Bacon Open Faced Burgers
> Chicken Salad on Lettuce Wraps

 

The only difference was now I had my tool box.

I already have a pantry with products and staples to make healthy low carb recipes.

I already know what to eat.

 

Maybe you are thinking about changing your diet… but you feel lost – “What would I even eat?!?!” You may be asking…

 

What if you had everything you needed to set yourself up for success right from the start?

 

  • Recipes
  • Problem Solving Tips
  • Inspiration

 

Would that change how your experience went?

Probably you would get better results too! 

 

Listen to my story here and how everything changed for me:

 

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = 'https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v3.1'; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

? Flashback to 8 years ago… I was in my second trimester of my first pregnancy… Everything was going well… until I was ?? 28 weeks and went for my gestational diabetes screening test. I thought "I'm the healthiest person I know!" I got this! ??But when my results came back that I had failed… ?I was crushed. I was shocked. I felt all alone. What happened next changed my LIFE!
