Rebooting my Wellness Routine: Part II - Energy

As I mentioned last month, I'm in the midst of making another go at rebooting my own personal wellness routine. It's a daily struggle, and there's a lot of different components to it, a big one being energy. Getting back into my regular workout routine (something I'm still building back up to) is perhaps the biggest piece of the puzzle, followed by eating right and taking the proper supplements. With the amount of daily running I already do with the kids, I'm looking toward the holiday season in hopes that I can up my game. It's all part of that "mind-body balance," hence I've added some Nature Made® VitaMelts Fast Dissolve Energy (Vitiamin B12 1500mcg) into the mix, along with some Chewable Vitamin C to help boost my immune system during my travel dates. I have a bad habit of getting run-down,

Rebooting my Wellness Routine with Nature Made

Spinning back the clock a couple of years, many longtime readers might recall my "2014 Fitness Challenge" here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, and my quest to get fit. I changed my diet, joined a gym, and began a routine that did me well. I was posting regular updates on the site, and even into 2016 I posted "gym selfies," but as some noticed, those became less frequent. Making a lifestyle change is a big deal, and you have to do it when it's right for you. Unfortunately, my plans were derailed a few times, first with gallbladder surgery in January of 2015 that knocked me out of routine, and again with a knee and hip issue. I'd dropped around 40 pounds, and now it's all been gained back. The time has come to get back into my routine, and a big part of that is overall "wellness" - not just the weight loss and strength training (which I'm getting back into again), but the things I'd not considered the last time around. One of those things is digestive health, and while picking up my supplements at my local Walmart Supercenter, I recently added Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic into the mix. Yep, digestive health!

An Hair-Raising Message from The Future...

Written by

THE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Life of Dad and Rogaine for the #FutureYou promotion.

The following message was sent via electronic letter to The Rock Father from The Rock Father of the Future...

Hello Me, meet the real me -- 

No, you're not dreaming. I'm you. You're me, and it's time we had a little talk. I'm from the future, and yes I greeted you (me) with a lyric from a song from 1992, but that's of no consequence right now. What might be a little more confusing is that I'm from your alternate future - the one you're not going to end up living because the conversation that we're having right now is going to negate that. Think of me as the "Future You" from alternate 1985, after the time machine got stolen and things ended up getting thrown out of whack. Don't worry, The Rock Daughters are fine. Addie has an incredibly successful family practice and Finn is doing fantastic at NASA. Jen is still on you to take better care of yourself, and yeah, the hair is an issue.

WWEI'm not sure how many of you have been following this aspect of my personal journey, but since January I've been involved in a Fitness Challenge, and to-date I'm down 35lbs - under 300 for the first time in nearly a decade - and building muscle through a mix of cardio and strength training. I often start the week my checking out WWE Monday Night Raw while working out at the gym, so I was pretty excited to learn that WWE is getting into the fitness game with a new line of WWE Fitness Series DVDs from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. On December 2, things kick-off with a his-and-hers launch of DVDs from "The Authority" - WWE Power Series: Triple H and WWE Fit Series: Stephanie McMahon. I'm planning to give the Triple H set a try, but in the meantime, check out the full specs on the workouts contained within...

As I'm currently in the midst of my personal Fitness Challenge this year (down 25 lbs) and have Little Finley still in diapers, I was bummed to miss an event I was invited to in Chicago last week - one where Celebrity Fitness Trainer (and Mom) Nikki Glor and Huggies Little Movers were set to show off some cool moves for parents and their "Little Movers" alike. But there is a silver lining! Huggies and Nikki have provided me with the details on three new exercises to share with all of you here on THE ROCK FATHER - each containing benefits for baby, mom or dad, and from Huggies Little Movers. And a big bonus? One of you will receive a month's supply of Huggies Little Movers! Just enter the giveaway below for a shot at the prize!
