Yoga before mommyhood is competely different from yoga after mommyhood. No more running out th door to get to whatever class I can hit. No more staying at the studio after hours to get my practice in, regardess of time. These days, my yoga mat is often covered with stuffed animals and Dora blanket. Ashtanga yoga is my main practice, and I've always had a home practice, but it's getting harder and harder to fit everything in a day, and get more than five hours of sleep.
BCAAs? What are those? BCAAs are Branched Chain Amino Acids which consist of L-Valine, L-Isoleucine and L-Leucine which is the most anabolic of the 3.

If you are trying to lose weight, then I am sure you are focussing on what you are eating on a regular basis, measuring each gram of cereal, monotoring your carbohydrate intake, etc., which is great, however, how many of you are actually paying attention to what you are drinking?

A 8 oz redbull has 27 grams of sugar and 108 calories or 6 3/4 teaspoons of sugar!
Question; John “When should I have my energy drink or coffee?”This is a great question. Energy is based on the consumption of food in the form of calories in macronutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates and fats. It is the only form of energy there is.

Nutrition is so important if you want to keep your hormones properly balanced. All hormones are made from either cholesterol or amino acids (proteins). So, diets high in carbs and low in protein (and believe it or not, cholesterol) can cause hormonal imbalance.
Since all hormones are related and connected, excessive levels of one may throw others out of balance. For example, the high insulin levels created by many typical American diets high in refined sugar and other simple carbs disrupt the function of thyroid, reproductive and adrenal glands.
