Joining the #LaLaChallenge For My Kids

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of LALA Yogurt Smoothies and WeAllGrow Latina Network. The opinions and text are all mine.

It's been almost 2 years since I had Mila bear & instead of loosing the baby weight like I had initially intended on doing before I gave birth I had let my postpartum depression get the best of me. It was a super hard time for me, and working out was the last thing on my mind at the time. Now that my little brother and Mila bear are getting older though I find myself outside more, and out of breath more often. I hadn't realized how far behind I let my health go, and these kids aren't slowing down anytime soon! So I decided that I would hop on board the HEB Slimdown Showdown sponsored by LaLa Yogurt smoothies. 

I started off with small choices food wise, like drinking more yogurt and incorporating more fresh foods in my diet. LaLa Yogurt Smoothies have been the perfect addition to my life because I can easily throw one in my diaper bag when we're on the go instead of skipping breakfast or drink them on our walks to the park and with 5 grams of protein what's not to love. The LaLa brand has been one of the brands that has stuck with me since childhood, I always know I can trust that it's made with amazing ingredients and it will have the same delicious taste it's always had.

Lately I've started doing small circuit workouts in my backyard while the babies played on the trampoline or on the slide. I love doing this because they're always more interested in what I'm doing and try to join me. This shows them the importance of working out, no matter where you are!

The HEB Slimdown Showdown is a 12 week competition where participants have a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize. The Showdown begins in San Antonio with an intensive, seven day wellness program known as Fit Camp, complete with fitness and nutrition training, cooking lessons, meal training and more.
