Perimenopause is a phase that most women encounter in their late 30s to early 40s, marking the transition towards menopause. As someone currently navigating my own perimenopausal journey, I understand the importance of addressing the various challenges that come with this transition.
One aspect often overlooked in perimenopause is hydration, and LMNT Hydration has been a game-changer for me. In this article, I'll share how LMNT Hydration, specifically the watermelon and chili mango flavors, has helped me increase my hydration needs, all while enjoying the salty goodness it offers.
Before we dive into the benefits of LMNT Hydration, let's briefly touch on perimenopause. This phase involves fluctuating hormone levels, primarily estrogen and progesterone, which can lead to a range of symptoms including hot flashes, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. Take this short Hormone Imbalance Quiz to see what symptoms you might be overlooking are actually tied to your hormones. Anyway, proper hydration plays a crucial role in managing these symptoms effectively.
As I've been working through my perimenopause journey, I've found that staying adequately hydrated is key to feeling my best. And even though, I only drink water and occasional cocktails on the weekend - I don't think I knew what it felt like to be properly hydrated until now. That's where LMNT Hydration enters the picture. Here's why it's become my go-to hydration solution:
In a world where conscious eating drives our lifestyle, finding a brand that aligns perfectly with the values of health-conscious women who follow vegan and gluten-free diets is rare. But, say hello to EatDuex, a brand that's swiftly making its mark in the health and wellness arena. Here's why EatDuex is a rock-solid choice for those of us who are passionate about their health and embrace the vegan and gluten-free way of living. For me, eggs and dairy wreck havoc on my gut - so finding a cookie dough that doesn't have eggs and I can eat right out of the jar - has been awesome.
The Real Deal in Nutrition and Taste:
EatDuex takes healthy eating to a different level. Their focus on plant-based, gluten-free offerings resonates with those of us who demand both nutrition and flavor. Every flavor I have tried has a great balance between healthy and delicious, proving that eating well doesn't mean compromising on taste.
Ingredients with Integrity:
EatDuex takes ingredients seriously. Every component is carefully chosen to create harmony between health and enjoyment. Their range, whether it's deux packed with superfoods or savory treats, their commitment to delivering options that resonate with us health-conscious women is second to none.
A Community of Like Minds:
EatDuex isn't just a brand; it's a tribe. It's where the health-conscious, especially those who follow vegan and gluten-free lifestyles, come together. The brand's authenticity and inclusivity create a space for sharing wellness journeys and celebrating victories collectively.
EatDuex isn't just another health-focused brand. It's a reflection of values, a taste of authenticity, and a testament to those of us who prioritize our well-being. So yeah...go ahead...get yourself some freaking duex and eat the damn cookie already.

Autumn Calabrese is BACK! I cannot wait to take control of 2021 with her brand new program 9 Week Control Freak. So let’s jump right in!
What is 9 Week Control Freak?
You can check out a little about the program HERE !
The image below goes over all the details and then I cover them in more detail as you read further.
🏋️♀️Super Trainer Autumn Calabrese is back for her tenth program! You probably know her from 21 Day Fix or 80 Day Obsession!
🏋️♀️9 week program that is divided into three phases- each increasing in intensity!
🏋️♀️5 workouts a week- three DCT-T workouts (Density, Complexes, and Tabata Training), one day of Total Body Tone, and one day of Tabata Cardio and Core.
🏋️♀️Density training builds strength and stamina by bringing the intensity! Perform 5 exercises for as many rounds as you can fit in before the clock expires. The next day, you will try to beat your current best! The new equipment helps to increase time under tension and Tabata cardio scorches calories!
🏋️♀️The workouts are only 18-30 minutes long!
🏋️♀️With new moves, new equipment, and incredible results, 9 Week Control Freak will help you to take control of the things that profoundly impact your quality of life - including strength, stamina, nutrition, and rest.

You will have access to 9 Week Control Freak once you purchase. However, you do need equipment starting with workout ONE. So I will be hosting a prep / holiday survival group so we can get through the holiday season, explore nutrition options, and all start day one together on January 4th!

✨ Control Track with B-LINES Resistance Band - this adjustable resistance device easily attaches to your door frame. It can also be mounted on a wall. (You’ll get a demonstration video + installation guidelines to ensure your safety!)
✨ Fitness step - like the one used in Transform :20, this step will work your body to its full potential!
✨ Core ball - an inflatable, non-weighted ball to help take your workouts to the next level!
✨ Dumbbells - you’ll want a set of light, medium, and heavy weights.
What is the nutrition plan like?
All 9 Week Control Freak Challenge and Completion Packs include BOTH UPF and 2B Mindset - our premium nutrition plans, so we will be able to focus on the nutrition program that works best for you. This combination of nutrition and fitness is amazing!

It is a great place to answer questions, brainstorm and just enjoy the community!
What packages are there?
For Current/Exisiting BOD Customers:

I definitely recommend the Deluxe Challenge Pack- Autumn is known for having amazing and effective workouts- so having Energize to power through and Recover so you can move the next day will be key!
My favorite add ons:
