A Mom Struggling

July 25, 2013 2 min read

Before I was pregnant with my first daughter I was at the gym daily.  Not working as hard as I could but still working hard.  I enjoyed being there...being able to spend decent periods of time trying to hone my body.  I slowly worked myself into the best shape I had ever been in.

When my husband and I became pregnant with our first we were overjoyed.  It was a magical time...about five minutes of it before I started to get morning sickness.  In the first few weeks I lost almost 15 pounds because I just couldn't keep anything down.  I was pale...I couldn't even walk fast without getting nauseous.  With some medicinal help it eased up.  And by the end of my pregnancy I was 25 lbs above my starting weight. It doesn't matter what you eat, how well you eat, or how much you are active during pregnancy...you still have to work it all off.  Except for obviously the 10 pounds or so that is associated with your baby. And then six months later I found BodyRock.tv and it was a lifesaver.  Between finishing up my degrees and having a little one to look after there was no time for the gym.  And so I worked and within about 4 months I was back to (almost) normal.  But I wanted more than My 'normal.'  I wanted that body we all dream about in our sleep...one that looks a lot like Lisa's. :) So a year and a half after finding BodyRock I'm still working there slowly.  I struggle every day finding both the motivation and the time for my DailyHiit.  And some days I'm lazy...I'd rather just collapse on the couch because my back aches so badly.  But I read a great quote that aptly applies to us all, and especially us parents.

"People say motivation doesn't last, well neither does bathing, that's why we recommend it daily." -Zig Ziglar

It's ok to struggle.  It's also ok to print out the picture of where you started and look at it and pat yourself for how far you've come.  I was in a dark place struggling with my post baby weight-and it took the knowledge that I was working towards changing my situation that brought me out of it.  So as a mom that's been there, and is still there, I just want to say-keep at it. EVERY DAY.  I tell myself that my time in the garage is my spa time-I feel more relaxed afterwards than I do collapsed on the couch.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
