My Health, Workout & Beauty Routines

This weekend when I did my Instagram AMA (” Ask Me Anything “) I got a lot of questions about my health and workout chores( and what kind of products and procedures I use/ do on my face as well !) As you know, I tend to be mostly an open work so I’m happy to share my daily procedure, with the caveat that I know these kinds of things can be triggering for those with organization epitomes issues- hell, I still have body idol matters. Quantities of them. As someone who was diagnosed as having organization dysmorphia, I certainly do NOT look myself the room other may ensure me. I’m no longer fight with an compulsive eating and I work hard trying to maintain a healthy mindset, but I know how hard it can be when you are really feeling down about yourself. So please don’t take this as anything but reacting some of your questions and sharing my personal favorites. My entire family is naturally thin and towering, and I was lucky to inherit quite respectable( albeit huge and cavity riddled) teeth, “hairs-breadth” and eyebrows from my mother, so I do acknowledge that as well( although the unibrow in middle school was a hard-boiled superhighway to travel, let me tell you ;))

Also, I find that all of this- beauty communions, works out and eating well all are a part of self care and that is important in maintaining some semblance of mental health, peculiarly now. I am very lucky to have a nanny who works until 6pm and a husband who is happy to trade on and off with the minors so we each can work out and take time to do things that become us loosened a little. I always point my workday with enough time to work out and spend time with my children, and try every night to do a little something to relax- a mask and tea or wine-coloured and a bathtub. Big advocate over here of that kind of thing.


I do not have a crazy routine. I move my face with a few different soaps will vary depending on how my surface is feeling( faves being Tammy Fender, Tata Harper and this Naturopathica one with the brush for winter when my scalp is DRY ). I use a prescription retinol at night and have been liking this rich Neocutis face cream over it. I have yet to find an attention paste I’m preoccupied with. So I have a few so-so ones now. Please share if you have a good one! Every night I use my LED mask- at first I thought it was a crock , now I’m thinking maybe there’s something to it( if I do it every night- takes 10 instants, and stirs Emma cry when I wear it and Henry think I’m an Avenger of some kind ). It’s been a duo months- we’ll realize. For masks, I am OBSESSED with this cheap Versed one . Seriously gives you a face-lift and brightens! I too ever feel right with a little faux tan, so if I use a duet descend of TanLuxe on my face and the classic standby St. Tropez mousse on my torso( with the mitt !) I also will use my gua sha implement and this oil to massage my face every few periods in the morning to wake it up and de-puff. Too feels great on sore jaw muscles! Speaking of sore muscles, this basic epsom salt with lavender can’t be pummel for relaxation in the bath. And my newest detect is this Miami Beach Bum cream- guys, I ever get razor burn on my legs …. since I switched to using mens razors( they are SO much better than the ones marketed to maids) and using this paste after- not ONE BUMP! Amazing. Even though I sort of reeked like a pizza from the oregano petroleum. #worthit

OK , now I’ve mentioned before I do have some injectables now that I’m in my 40′ s. I get Botox between my eyebrows and above my upper lip( I have a gummy smile and this keeps the top lip from snapping under) as well as in my mouth for TMJ( which has, as a side effects, slimmed my jawline vastly a la Bethenny Frankel’s before and after pics- LOL ). I also get filler in my buttocks to become involved in my Resting Bitchy Face arguments around my mouth that establish me look like I’m pee-pee all the time. I also plan to get, what my doctor says is “baby Fraxel” in October as my light distinguishes are out of control now. She says I’m gonna LOVE it, and she knows her stuff. I’m very much on the side of doing whatever moves you feel best- no disgrace , no regret. And heavily advocate for going to see an actual doctor for anything injected , not a med spa/ beautician. You do NOT demand injectables done in the entrusts of anyone not properly trained!


After 7 years of IVF hormones and maternities, my figure is finally settling back into a “normal” matched position. And it feels GREAT. I too have found that working out has become therapy to me for my anxiety( especially these days with the world one big ol’ dumpster fervor) and so I’ve been hustling more than normal and more actively involved than I’ve been in years. So right now, I’m a little thinner than I’ve been in a while as I find the balance of working out and devouring. But eating well has also helped me feel better about myself extremely, mentally and physically. In no way do I revoke myself something I’m praying( in fact I housed a Burger King Double Cheeseburger on our drive to CT this past weekend ), but during the week I try to eat pretty healthful. On the weekend, all pots are off for the most part.

I start my date with a smoothie chock full of augments and good nonsense to make sure I know I get SOME goodness in my structure should the whole day’s eating intention going to be home the crapper. I meld a beaker of frozen wildernes Maine blueberries, handful of spinach, scoop of Athletic Greens, dollop of collagen peptides, dollop of vanilla protein, 1/2 a banana, coconut milk and the liquid of half a lemon. A yummy and fast space to power up. I get a nonfat latte on the way to work and then generally have a protein bar mid-morning. For lunch, I ingest a Sweetgreen salad almost every day( spinach, arugula, chicken, broccoli, carrots, beets, shaved parm, lentils and balsamic vinaigrette) I’ve been so crazy hectic lately with job, exercisings and the children that I typically don’t ingest again until dinner. Which could be order in pizza or Indian or Andrew will cook up some concoction of protein, carb and veggie. Oh and wine-colored. ๐Ÿ™‚ Again, #moderation.


I am so excited to be building our cellar gym right now with Brookes+ Hill because I’ve been ride my Peloton under a literal raincloud of fiberglass insulation that will probably kill me. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ve decided we will most likely never join a gym again, so this is a great investment. We got a Peloton during COVID( as did everybody else) and while I still am not a HUGE fan of inventing, I Adore the thing. The first-class are great- running( outdoor audio or treadmill ones ), biking, backbone, HIIT, yoga- I try them all! And the teaches are really motiving( shoutout to my faves -Emma, Alex and Selena) I’m @eringates1979, if are you gonna follow along. I too LOVE Melissa Wood Health classes and Sculpt Society. I too procured this daughter, Rachel Gullotta, on YouTube I like quite a bit more. I bit the bullet and got an Apple Watch so I can run without lugging my phone and love that it roads my stats. The best part of my brand-new routine- how much STRONGER I am, and the endurance I have is shockingly improved! Actually watching causes is pretty cool.

I work out about 30 -5 0 minutes a day 5-6 epoches a week. Everyday I do something different so a few weeks may look like this ๐Ÿ˜› TAGEND


MONDAY: Running outside- 3-4 miles or inside Peloton operate class

TUESDAY: 30 -4 0 instant Melissa Wood Health class
