As I’ve talked about in the past, getting healthier is a top priority for 2014. I have baby weight and then some to lose. I want to be a better example for my kids – and be able to chase them around the playground. My house is a mess because the majority of the time, I don’t have the energy at the end of the day to straighten it all up.

So, it’s time to work on myself – for me, my two boys, my husband, and my home!

Adding Insync Probiotics to my Daily Routine

To really focus on my health and fitness goals, I decided to sign up for an online boot camp earlier this month. It’s an 8 week program that comes complete with exercise routines, meal plans, and a very supportive Facebook group.

The woman running it is a certified personal trainer (and mother of seven) that lost weight and got in shape a few years ago, so I’m following in the footsteps of someone who has been where I currently am! Seeing how we was able to work on herself while tending to her children, business, and home is a true inspiration!

Before the online boot camp started, I had to prepare myself for the workouts and food that I’d be adapting during the eight week program. I headed to Walmart for an exercise mat, some new exercise clothing, and a few other odds and ends.

While there, I took a walk through the pharmacy and saw the Insync Probiotic box sitting on the top shelf. I’ve heard so much about probiotics and their benefits, I decided it was time to try them for myself.

Another reason for my decision stems from my gallbladder removal in late 2012. I feel that my digestive system isn’t be running 100% these days. My gallbladder wasn’t all that vital for life, but still – it was in there for a reason and now it’s gone. I figured it was worth a shot to improve my digestion with a Natural Probiotic while I was making the switch to healthier eating and exercise.

I opted for the 30 day bottle to go with my 8-week boot camp. I might as well go all out with this new healthy lifestyle, right?! I have been taking the average-sized pill (a size which I am thankful for) with my vitamins at breakfast each morning for the past almost 2 weeks.

Between the meal and my vitamins, I don’t forget that I also need to take the probiotic – so it’s become part of my morning routine.

I don’t feel so bloated or yucky these days, and like I have more energy. This could be from the exercise, I know, but I think having the right balance of bacteria in my body helps too. The dietary supplement contains B.Infantis, which is doctor recommended for a healthy digestive tract.

My plan is to continue my boot camp as well as taking the natural probiotic from Insync to improve my health. Both are making me feel better, and have the drive to get out and be active – like running fun road races!

    I did a 1 mile race yesterday with my daughters and that really motivated me to get more active and fit! I hope to be able to do a 5K race soon.

    I don’t take a probiotic. Sounds like I need to do some research on it. You seem committed to make a change and getting well prepared. Good luck with your boot camp

  3. says

    I don’t take a probiotic but I’ve heard such great things about them. I try to stay healthy by eating more salads and drinking a lot of water.

  4. says

    I have been focusing on more water which but I need to get moving. That color run looks like fun! Kudos to you for taking the time to take care of yourself!

    I always go on “probiotic kicks” but as soon as the budget gets tight- I drop them off my shopping list:( I need to be better about taking care of me!

  6. says

    I have been considering taking a probiotic lately, this one sounds great! Congrats on taking so many awesome steps to being a better you! I am working on this too! ;)

    I love probiotics! I had a health care professional tell me one time that if you’re going to take only one vitamin, it should be a probiotic. The health of our gut controls the health of many other areas of the body.

    I’d love to do a race like that one! I hope to get healthier this year and it does start with taking the right supplements. Thanks for sharing!

  9. says

    Hurrah that you found a combo that’s making you feel better! I’d gladly stick with it too…if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? :)

    Probiotics are a great way to keep the digestive track regulated. Because I have ulcerative colitis, I do take them because they are recommended by my GI doctor.

    I am really going to look into this Probitic. I started working on my health and fitness goals last month. The biggest thing I did was cut out the diet soda and added in a ton of water.

    I was taking probiotics for a couple of weeks and really liked the results. But, then I got pregnant and wasn’t sure I could while pregnant?? Anyways, just wanted to say cute pic from the Color Run!

    I’ve been taking probiotics for awhile, and I love how they’ve reduced some of the gastro issues I was having. Coincidentally, I went out and bought a yoga mat and workout clothes because I was tired of the baby weight (my kid is 8, so we know it’s really NOT baby weight anymore). I’m glad we’re getting away from an era of antibiotics and focusing more on probiotics, because super bugs have become more and more scary, and it will continue to escalate. Love that last triumphant pic after the Color Fun race!
