SB's Daily Supplements

Before you read any further, I would like to preface this blog post. Supplements ARE NOT magic pills. Supplements ARE NOT a quick fix. Supplements WILL NOT work if you aren't working. 

Josh and I own TWO supplement companies and I am sitting here telling you to NOT waste your money if you aren't willing to diet and exercise. 

That being said... I get asked DOZENS of times a day what supplements I use. And don't think of supplements has bad- many people do. Supplements aren't meant to give results to those unwilling to work. No one's diet is perfect, even if you are eating your 7 recommended servings of vegetables a day- do you know how any chemicals are on those plants + the fact that they were probably picked prematurely to get to the grocery store on time? 

Buying local produce and hunting your own meat (if you choose to eat meat) are two great ways to ensure that you are getting as little chemicals in your food as possible but even then- your diet could always improve. Supplements are meat to bridge the gap between what your body needs and what your diet is feeding it. Are there ridiculously unnecessary supplements out there? Absolutely! Do you need to be taking 35 pills a day? NO WAY! 

Supplements aren't just protein powders and pre workouts. There are a lot of really beneficial supplements out there, so I really hope this helps shed some light on what we use, why we use it, and if you need to use it as well.

With anything, always ask your doctor before starting any sort of supplement program especially if you are on prescriptions, nursing/pregnant, or under the age of 18.

Toothpaste

Every since I started periscoping, I have received A TON of inquiries about how I keep my teeth so white. The secret? My toothpaste. I have been using a new toothpaste for about 5 months now and EVERYONE has noticed. I even used to bleach my teeth twice a year and no one noticed like they are now!

Boobs and Barbells

Today on my instagram (@sarah_bowmar), I posted a workout video that included burpees and I made the comment that I don't do the pushup because of my implants. And it sparked a frenzy.

Here's a little background on my implant journey:

When I was 19, 3 days before my second year of college started,  I had my first breast augmentation in Indianapolis, Indiana. I started with very little natural mass- I'm talking like a small A. My surgeon was able to give me 350 CC saline implants and one of the only things she forbade me to do was to lift chest with those implants. When you lift chest, your pec muscles will separate (hence, the chest split I'm sure you all have heard or seen online). This is great if that's the look you are going for- horrible if you have implants under the muscle like me (as your implants will move as your pec moves, therefore, giving you little to no cleavage).

So I obviously listed to Dr. Short. She's a surgeon and I am not. During the next 6 years. I added about 35 pounds of mass to my 5'3 frame. This resulted in my then "huge" implants looking quite average. For me, I was no longer comfortable.

In December of 2014, I decided to have my implants removed and replaced. This time, in Columbus, OH. I had 550 CC silicone implants replace my current saline ones. Again, under the muscle. My surgeon, again, suggested that I avoid isolating my chest muscles in any workouts that I do.

Does this mean that everyone with implants needs to avoid working chest? NO. But for my body, my implants, my placement, and my workouts- it was suggested to me twice by two different surgeons at two different points in my life with two different types of implants to not isolate chest- doctors do know what they are talking about!

If you are concerned at all about your implants, then ask or call your surgeon! That's what they are there for!

Happy Boobs For Life!!!

No Bake Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

My oh my! I have never had quite a response for a recipe before in my life.

This recipe was actually sent on Monday in my FREE newsletter (you can sign up on sarahbowmar.com/newsletter) to be added to the list

Recipe:
2 TBSP peanut butter
1 TBSP honey
1/2 cup oats
1 scoop vanilla or peanut butter protein powder
Almond milk

In a saucepan, heat the peanut butter and honey together on medium until melted. Remove from heat. Add in oats and protein powder. Add a splash or almond milk to make everything bind together.

Plop the mixture into balls on a plate and store in the fridge for 20 minutes and then enjoy!!!
