As a reminder, I've been following a new diet called:

One of the hardest things to get used to on this program is the fasting. Or so I thought until I started doing it! They preach that "going without breakfast is part of intermittent fasting (IF), also called time-restricted feeding (TRF). IF is a pattern of food consumption that cycles between fasting and eating in specific time periods. There are various ways to do it; one of the most common is the 16/8 protocol, which involves 16 hours of fasting—typically done overnight—with an 8-hour window in which to eat each day. And, it’s actually been going really well.  We’ve been traditionally taught to avoid carbs, have an early dinner, and never eat before bed. But the fa...

This post is gifted but the opinions below reflect my own views.

Since being on maternity leave during quarantine, my instincts to get to my 'get to list' (you know the list of things you've always wanted to do but never had time to do?) is starting to get completed in 1 hour nap-time increments. With the weather changing and another baby crawling on the floors, I've noticed more pet hair, dander and dust pilling up then I'm used to. I'm excited to be partnering with Levoit, one of my FAVORITE air purifier brands, to share something that's really helped my cleaning regiment: The Levoit Pet Air Purifier. It's made especially for homes with lots of pet hair. I've been using it for about a month now and have to recommend it - our house is less stuffy, the air just frankly smells cleaner, and I actually have to dust/vacuum the pet hair it attracts off the side of it because it cleans up SO MUCH OF IT. It's amazing. We actually have their other purifiers throughout our home - one in each bed...

Things have been going pretty well so far! One of my goals was to have more energy and I’ve definitely been able to get deeper sleep and have been less tired on walks and just generally speaking during the day playing with Adelaide.

is a three-phase program that teaches you how to lose big by strategically eating big when you are naturally hungriest—in the evening. This may sound too good to be true, but let me assure you it is no gimmick. It’s all about making strategic and smart food swaps, and you can still eat your favorite foods. The plan consists of: The 14-day Acceleration Phase to kick-start the program and see rapid results, The Main Phase where you’ll learn exactly which foods to eat when in order to achieve your weight-loss goals, The Lifestyle Phase to keep the weight off for good

I’m also loving the program itself that we can use the easy to follow meal planning and food lists. I’m s...

I find that committing to a diet helps me stay on track. It gives me a start and end date to keep me focused on my goals. That’s why I’m excited about

Before I started this, I wanted to do a little more research on the science and fasting behind it. What I found is that "specific higher-carbohydrate foods (including berries and cherries) support your fat-burning metabolism while you sleep, providing your body with a steady stream of fuel throughout the night. The trick is knowing how to combine them with other evening and pre-bedtime fat-burning foods to fuel your metabolism as you sleep.” Sounded like it made sense so I figured...
