Sky is getting me in shape

How am I going to go get back in shape, or at least get back to my pre pregnancy body after my baby is born? This question frequently popped into my mind during my pregnancy. However, now that I am able to hold my almost 2 month old baby the answer to this question does not seems as important as it was before. Physically I am still recovering from a challenging labor (but it was worth every second) and the…

My L.E.A.N pregnancy

You might be looking at my huge baby bump and thinking “Lean?!”. Well, L.E.A.N in this post stands for Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutrition (according to Dr Sears Wellness Institute). As I write this post, I am just a few days away from my due date (March 15), and I can say that I truly LOVED being pregnant and all the stages and changes that came along with it, even the extra 30 pounds. …

Supplements while I am pregnant

I always knew I wanted to be a mother, but I never really spent time thinking or researching what a pregnant women needs or goes through during these very special 9 months. In the beginning of this year, I became a Health Coach, and one of the topics in the course was about the special health needs during pregnancy.

My one 2016 wish

It has been one year since I launched this free lifestyle blog with the tag line “swim, bike, run & a little more”. Well, it ended up that the “little more” part grew more, much more.

The Top 12 Pregnancy Superfoods

People often tell me: “Now you are eating for two!” That’s true, but I have been learning in the past  6 months that “eating for two” does not mean that I should eat two times more, even though sometimes I am more hungry than I ever been in my life. But more than the quantity, I have been focusing on the quality of each bite. The thought that everything that I am eating is not just feeding my own needs but specially…

My new fav exercise

This month for Hawaii Sport Magazine I wrote an article about my three favorite exercises to do while I am pregnant. The three were (no surprise) swim, bike and run, but of course with a totally different mind set and also intensity. However, two weeks after I sent the article to the magazine, I decide to stop running. Because one afternoon while I was jogging with the Lanikai Juice Run Club, I felt my tummy, and it was heavier than usual.…
