Inspired Supps

So one of the most frequently asked what supplements I take and how it works in conjunction with my thyroid medication.

For those of you who do not know me….Hello my name is Kelsey and I am a thyroid cancer survivor! I take armour thyroid to replace the thyroid hormones my body can no longer produce due to the thyroidectomy I had 5+ years ago.

One of the first questions I asked my Endrochronologist post surgery was if I was allowed to take any supplements and if so, how long did how long do I have to wait after I take my thyroid medication to have any. His response was that after I waited the 45 min whatever I wanted to take after that he was okay with. Now, I am not a medical professional and I will advise it’s up to you to work with your doctor if you have any questions. I am just sharing what supplements I take from Inspired and how they have worked for me.

What I take BEFORE THE GYM:

I am a busy thyroid-less girl. I have a full time Business Career in addition to the other companies I am involved with, my workouts, and this thing called life so best believe I NEED a preworkout stack that will give me that boost I need to power through my workouts without that “cracked out” feeling because I already drink coffee throughout the day. I mix 1/2 scoop of the two following powders 30 min before the gym

1. 3MBER

BCAAS

You don’t want your hard earned gains to go to waste. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Three of these leucine, isoleucine, and valine are muscle building power houses. BCAAS help you preserve lean muscle mass, recover quicker, and replenish vital minerals lost during training.

Why you need it:

  • Reduce fatigue during your workouts
  • Preserve lean muscle mass
  • Triggers protein synthesis

These are also great to add to your water for flavor throughout the day if you have a hard time getting your water intake daily!

Product Review: Beat Kicks

I love my beats headphones because whenever I workout I can’t hear ANYTHING around me. It helps keep my focused and when I first started working out I didn’t feel so anxious being around all the meatheads because I was focused on my music.

For anyone who wears beats or any over the ear headphones to the gym, you know they get pretty sweaty and nasty overtime as the leather starts to crack. I usually spray mine down with some disinfectant after I work out but the leather starts to wear out pretty quickly. After going through my second pair of headphones and I was going on my third I splurged and got the brand new rose gold ones as a black Friday #Treatyouself gift. I decided I needed to make sure I took good care of these! (For those wondering NO, I did not toss the last two headphones my ex stole my first pair which were pretty trashed and I left my second pair at the gym).

These new rose gold ones have white ear cushions so right off the bat I thought with my make up and tanning products and how my headphones were going to get dirty fast! I had my eye on Beatkicks for a while and finally decided to it was time after I got my new headphones.

I originally wanted the Palms print but it has been sold out for what feels like forever, which I am not surprised because it is such a cute print! I went with my second favorite the Maui print! After I purchased, they got my order out quickly and shipping was fast. I appreciate how it came in minimal packaging when it arrived, eco friendly.

Beatkicks are a one size fits most cover for your headphones including: 

Audio-Technica
Beats Studio
Beats Solo
Bose Quiet Comfort
Bose Soundlink JBL
Munitio Skullcandy Hesh ..and many others

The material is mostly made out of polyester at 83% and the other 17% is spandex. They are very soft and thick. They are shaped like a cloth donut (okay can you tell I’m hungry?) with a strong elastic scrunch band to secure around the headphones on one side. The other side is has a flush edge that goes next to your ears with the opening for your speakers in the headset. There is double stitching around the outside seam to ensure it wears well and stays in place. If you do not have wireless headphones there is a little slit on one of the covers to feed the cord through. But if you don’t have a cord don’t worry the hole isn’t noticeable.

They come in two sizes regular and mini. I purchased the regular and I feel that they are slightly baggy on my Beats Solo3. I should have got the mini even though the sizing chart depicts you could go either way and “when in doubt, go regular”!

I was worried that the cloth would bother me while I was wearing them working out but it actually keeps them in place instead of sliding around compared to the leather when I start to sweat. Overall the covers are extremely high-quality I am impressed. I highly recommend them for anyone who works out with over the ear headphones to keep them sanitary and preserve your headphones.

Because I work out 6x times a week and these are machine washable I will more than likely end up going the Maui print when it comes back into stock so that I have two pairs so I can always have a clean pair on hand. But this time, I will go with the mini!
