fitlosophy inc., creator of fitbook™ fitness and nutrition journals, is proud to announce the arrival of its new bundle of joy: fitbook™ mama2b. Designed to help expecting moms navigate through 40 weeks of pregnancy, fitbook mama2b is a tool for moms-to-be to plan for an active and healthy pregnancy. From goal-setting and informational tips, to fitness and nutrition facts, mama2b delivers an all-in-one guide complete with a ton of motivation and a tad bit of humor.
“Based on fitbook’s unique and proven goal-setting system, fitlosophy has developed a 40-week version to meet the needs of expecting mamas,” says Angela Manzanares, chief fitlosopher and fitness expert. “Seeing the numbers of the scale go up during pregnancy makes many moms-to-be feel down – mama2b helps pregnant women keep a positive perspective on staying active and healthy.”
Personalized, flexible and functional, this “chubby” 40-week fitbook is packed with everything expectant moms need to get – and stay – on track. Each color-coded trimester planner includes sections to record important stats like healthy baby weight gain and blood pressure, set workout and nutrition goals, and reflect on daily and weekly achievements. To give active mamas some extra TLC, the trimester planner also poses soul-searching questions and is sprinkled with inspirational quotes.
Offering expecting moms a no-brainer blueprint for fitting exercise and healthy nutrition into their busy schedules, the weekly plan encourages setting goals and tracking progress. Other weekly features include practical – and often entertaining – fitness and nutrition tips, fruit and veggie graphics to estimate baby’s size week-by-week, and an excitement-building baby countdown. And, for those experiencing “pregnancy brain,” there are plenty of places to jot down important bits of info like doctor’s appointments, questions for physicians, blood pressure, and healthy weight gain milestones.
On a daily basis, moms-to-be are encouraged to record strength training and cardio, log food, track nutrients, and take note of water and sleep intake – all key elements to a healthy pregnancy. For in-hand convenience, there is also a chart for nutrient-packed, power pregnancy foods and a healthy baby weight gain guide. At the 40-week mark, fitbook mama2b offers some final words of wisdom and a page to celebrate achievements and earn much-deserved rewards (postnatal massage, perhaps?). There’s also a place for baby’s birth date, time, length and weight stats, as well as after-baby tips to help new moms gear up to regain their pre-baby body.
fitbook mama2b is available online for $24.95 at http://www.getfitbook.com and all Target stores.
