A day in the life of an active mom is ever-changing and can be full of surprises. TB12 Body Coach Becca Coutts walks you through her typical busy day, from the time her alarm clock goes off in the morning to tucking her newborn baby into bed at night — and everything in between! 

A Day in Becca’s Life

6:00 am: Wake up and drink water first thing! I use TB12 unflavored electrolytes in the AM, and lemonade electrolytes in the PM. I use this time to catch up on emails, and take my dogs outside!

6:30-7:00 am: I get my workout in using TB12 resistance bands! I warm up first with my vibrating pliability sphere.

7:00-7:30 am: Shower and get ready for the day!

7:30 am: My daughter Mila wakes up! I start getting a bottle ready for her and make my daily smoothie. I also usually try to take my supplements around this time too — including my TB12 Multivitamin.

8:00-10:00 am: Playtime with Mila! This includes reading books, crawling around, climbing and pulling to stand on everything in the house.

10:30-11:45 am: First nap of the day! I take this time to clean up the house, do laundry, food prep, take the dogs out, etc.

12:00 pm: Another bottle for Mila and lunchtime for both of us! Mila usually gets some hummus with steamed zucchini and broccoli with her favorite fruit; raspberries. I usually prepare a large quinoa salad that I will eat throughout the week.

1:00- 2:30 pm: Stroller walk in the neighborhood and more playtime with Mila. On days that are warmer, I will usually set up a play tent in the yard to get outside! I’m always hydrating constantly throughout the day.

3:00- 4:00 pm: Theoretically her last nap of the day, if she decides to take it. I try not to plan anything significant during this time just in case it does not happen. Usually just finishing up tasks around the house and getting caught up on work.

4:30 pm- 7:00 pm: Another bottle for Mila and playtime in the kitchen while I get dinner ready. I usually prepare some sort of bowl; either roasted veggies, chickpeas, black beans or tofu, and greens or grains as a base.

7:00-7:30 pm: Bath time then our bedtime routine.

7:30 pm: Mila’s down for the night!

7:30 pm-9:30 pm: I use this time to decompress and hang out with my husband, dogs, and catch up on whatever show we are currently binge watching.

10:00 pm: Bedtime! I try to do a guided meditation/body scan for sleep a couple times a week which helps me destress and recenter before doing it all again the next day!

My Go-To Workout

I like to start and end all of my workouts with around 5 to 10 minutes of pliability using my Vibrating Pliability Sphere. I’ll especially focus on my glutes, as well as any muscle groups I know I’ll be using during the workouts – including my quads, hamstrings, calves, back, and shoulders. I’m 10 months post-pregnancy, and the workout below is a great example of what I’ll commonly do using my resistance bands at home.

01 Banded Glute Bridge

02 Glute Medius Side Plank

03 Lateral Band Walk

04 Bird Dog

05 Front Plank

 

06 Banded Deadlift

07 Lateral Alternating Squats

08 Pallof Press

 

No two mothers are alike and each journey will be different! Remember to always do what feels right for you, because no one knows your body or your mind better than you.
