“Why don’t you be our brand ambassador?”
I am your regular mom, the stay-at-home type. I also blog (and am sometimes called a mom blogger), more on my kids and my other passions in life such as cooking and baking. Sometimes I do reviews of products that I want to try and which I believe in. Last year, Agnes from Active Hive asked me if I wanted to try their Minus Calories 30min workout. It was a month after I had delivered the boy and I had wanted to gain back my stamina so it was a definite yes for me.
In those five sessions, my muscle mass has increased and my metabolic age improved (you can read about my review here). I have had such a good experience with the workout that I continued with it at my own expense. Besides helping me in terms of my fitness, I also appreciate that such a form of ME time is spent wisely. Health is important to me and ME time maintains my sanity.
I am thankful and proud to be one of the few ambassadors for Active Hive. To me, being the brand’s spokesperson means advocating for the right approach to health and a balanced lifestyle. There is no shortcuts to being fit and healthy. We must all put in the right effort, balance, concentration, exercise, nutrition and rest and ultimately be responsible for our own health.
6 months post-partum and I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight, thanks to breastfeeding and all the various forms of workout (household chores included) that I attempt. My personal goal through Minus Calories 30min workout is to improve my stamina, increase my muscle mass and continue to have an improvement for my metablic age which currently stands at 28. I am not looking to lose weight or to achieve a body type that I could not attain. Being healthy and fit is.
I am slowly returning to running, a sports that I used to do very regularly before the kids came along. I want to do so with the family because I desire my children to develop a love for sports themselves and to lead a healthy lifestyle. To achieve that, we as parents have to be role models.
I must tell you it’s not easy. There are times when I prefer to rest at home as opposed to working out. I find having like-minded friends to exercise with you helps a lot. So, if you want to motivate me or need some encouragement to get yourself started and moving, I’m here!
Besides working out, having the right nutrition is equally important. If you have not already known, Active Hive promotes healthy eating through the sale of their superfoods like quinoa, Chia seeds, cold pressed cacao and Maca powder. I was a convert to these superfoods a few years back and am slowly introducing them to my children and husband.
I am proud to be representing Active Hive because I know the founders are passionate and genuinely care for the well being of their customers. I know that because I was once their customer and am pleased to note that they have been consistent in what they are doing. If you want to find out more about Minus Calories 30min workout or any other products/ services that Active Hive is providing, feel free to drop me an email and I would be more than happy to communicate with you.
I would be updating my ‘Back to Fitness’ journey on this space. Do look out for Motivational Monday’s post on them. Alternatively you can follow me on Instagram! Meanwhile, eat well, exercise right and stay healthy! 😀
