Working out is not my strong suit. I've never been an avid exerciser, and though I try to get a little cardio for the sake of my health, body, mind and mental sanity, I prefer to do it solo--on a treadmill or the elliptical--safe from the silent judgment of fellow overzealous aerobic attendees.
Alas, the only way to truly push myself is in the company of others. (I'm competitive like that!) And so when I got an invite for a big-time booty workout at Exhale Spa with Momtrends, sponsored by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste, I quietly cursed the exercise gods and emailed my RSVP, "See you there. I'll be the one struggling in the back!"). Okay, Lauren... You can do this! Fortunately, the promise of mini massage and delicious snacks offered ample encouragement.
And so, surrounded by peers and blogger friends, I lunged and squatted and worked my bum to the bone. (I maybe cheated a few moves, but let me tell you, a week later, and I am still feeling the effects of a "maximum strength" workout.) Thanks for that Boudreaux!
Speaking of maximum strength, the new Boudreaux Butt Paste jar is my new BFF. With a little one still in diapers, I'm constantly cleansing, wiping, and protecting (a whole other sort of workout!) one very tiny and often irritated tush. I keep this big guy within reach on the changing table, and it's one less stretch for my exhausted upper body (plus, I really like the convenient flip-top cap). Better yet, I love that it's incredible fast-acting and effective without the use of any harsh and dubious ingredients. It's formulated with 40 percent zinc oxide, and has over two times the rash-fighting power of the original formula. It works by forming a protective layer on the skin to sooth discomfort and prevent further breakdown.
Now if only it would take away my post workout aches and pains! Nope, that's one burn I'm still feelin'...
