Bailey Ames (tiktok.com/@baileyamess” aria-label=”@baileyamess (opens in a new tab)”@baileyamess) is an Alabama-based boy mom who said she had her glow up “AFTER having a baby.”

She inspired her followers to put in the work to succeed, with some of them saying she “gives [them] hope.”

In the clip, the blonde beauty began by sharing photos of what she looked like before her pregnancies.

Posing in a bikini, she demonstrated that she was thin but didn’t have much muscle or definition.

During her pregnancy, she gained 45 pounds and showed her adorable bump covered in stretch marks — which she revealed went away with time and tanning.

Two babies later and motivated to get her body in check, she began hitting the gym consistently for a year and a half.

In her after photos, Bailey posed in a sports bra and workout leggings to flaunt her muscular legs, plump backside, flat tummy, and toned arms.

She surprisingly looked even more fit than she did before

Jaquez, Jackson Headline Pacers’ First Pre-Draft Workout

The Pacers have drafted the AP Pac-12 Player of the Year two years in a row, taking Chris Duarte with the 13th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and Bennedict Mathurin with the sixth overall pick in 2022.

We won’t know until draft night where Jaime Jaquez, the latest Pac-12 Player of the Year, will end up, but he was in Indiana on Friday for the Pacers’ first pre-draft workout.

Jaquez, UConn guard Andre Jackson Jr., and Missouri forward Kobe Brown headlined a group that also included Creighton forward Arthur Kaluma, Lithuanian guard Liutaurus Lelevicius, and North Dakota State center Grant Nelson. Those six prospects went through testing and drills in front of the Pacers front office, coaches, and scouts at the Ascension St. Vincent Center.

All but Lelevicius will be heading to Chicago shortly for the NBA Draft Combine, which begins on Monday. The NBA Draft Lottery will also take place in Chicago on Tuesday, where the Pacers will find out where their top pick falls in this year’s draft, which will take place on June 22. Indiana could pick anywhere from first through fourth or seventh through 11th, depending on how the ping pong balls bounce in the lottery. The Blue & Gold also own two additional first round picks — the 26th and 29th overall selections — and two second round picks.

Jaquez, a 6-7 forward, is well known to college basketball fans from his four years at UCLA. He really emerged on the national scene in Indianapolis as a sophomore, when the entire NCAA Tournament was held in Central Indiana due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Jaquez scored 27 points in an overtime win over Michigan State in the First Four and then helped lead the Bruins on a surprise run to the Final Four.

NCAA champ Andre Jackson Jr. proves value of little things

INDIANAPOLIS — Andre Jackson Jr. is confident enough in NBA talent evaluators to believe they understand his value.

It might be easy to dismiss Jackson and his 6.0 career points per game in three seasons at UConn including two as a starting guard if he hadn’t just helped the Huskies to a mildly surprising national title. During that run, all the little things the junior from Amsterdam, N.Y. stood out.

Jackson tied for the team lead in assists per game with 4.7. he was second on the team in rebounding with 6.2 per game and tied for the team lead in steals with 1.1 per game. He showed he could handle multiple positions including point guard on offense, guard multiple positions on defense and rebound above his size at 6-6, 210 pounds. And he was the guy who did the dirty work, diving on the floor or saving balls that were flying out of bounds to maintain possessions or create new ones.

Players like him don’t get picked in the lottery, and you can’t built a franchise with them as the centerpiece. But rare is the team that wins a title without such a player, or even with only one of them. That’s why the Pacers brought him in Friday as part of their first pre-draft prospect workout leading up to next week’s combine in Chicago and why Jackson trusts that his contributions shine through even in small-group workouts.

“I think the things that I do well definitely translate,” Jackson said Friday after the workout at the Ascension St. Vincent Center across from Gainbridge Fieldhouse. “Rebounding, playing defense, just being a good guy, somebody who can ignite the gym and be a voice on the court. I think all those things translate.”

Inside Max Verstappen’s training routine, exercise plans and diet as he chases third title | F1 | Sport

Max Verstappen has previously opened up on the exercise routine, training schedule and diet which has helped him secure two F1 Drivers’ Championships. Verstappen dominated the campaign last season and currently leads this year’s championship with just three races completed. Express Sport takes a look at how the 25-year-old keeps himself in shape.


Verstappen has revealed the hardest part of racing is the strain on his neck and lower back. He uses weights and balancing exercises from his home as well as a series of exercise machines.

These include a wattbike, Isomed steering wheel to build up upper arm strength and a neck dynamometer. Verstappen told JOE: “For me the most important is just the cardio. I do a lot of running, Everyone is built differently.

“Some people need to work out a lot and need to focus on their muscles to keep the muscle strength up. From my side, I think I’m a little bit lucky that I don’t need to focus too much on that. Of course, I’m doing these workouts but if I don’t do that for like a week I’m not losing a lot of strength.”

Training routine

Max Verstappen has previously revealed he trains up to two times a day to stay fit throughout the F1 season. However, he stresses the importance of rest in a packed calendar and admits to having several off days when away from the track.

Speaking to verstappen-trains-his-neck-to-prepare-for-the-intense-g-force-on-track/?category=fitness”Men’s Health, Verstappen has previously explained: “In season, training depends if we are racing or not. Let’s say if we have a week off racing, I have Monday as a rest day.

Then Tuesday to Thursday, I will do 1-2 training sessions per day, depending on how busy we’ve been in the weeks before, and I would

Apple may want to use AI to change your diet, sleep routine, and mood, Bloomberg reports

SHANGHAI, CHINA - FEBRUARY 21, 2023 - Apple watches are displayed at an Apple store in Shanghai, China February 21, 2023.

  • Apple is developing an AI-powered health coach under the codename Quartz, Bloomberg reported.

  • It will use Apple Watch data to monitor diet, exercise, and sleep patterns, then suggest changes.

  • While reportedly set to be released next year, the initiative remains unannounced.

The future of wellness is Artificial Intelligence, with an algorithmic coach making customized suggestions for when to exercise and sleep, what snacks to eat — even how to improve your mood.

At least, that’s what the development team at Apple seems to be thinking.

Bloomberg first reported the tech giant’s plan to create an AI-powered health coaching service, currently under development with the codename “Quartz.” It would use data from Apple Watch users to monitor sleep patterns, exercise routines, diet, and emotions, then suggest personalized healthy changes based on the AI’s analysis.

According to Apple employees who were not authorized to speak publicly about the unannounced initiative, the outlet reported, the coaching tool will be rolled out next year if development is completed on time, with an emotion log feature and an unknown aid for nearsightedness to debut later this year.

Representatives for Apple did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

As usual, KSI was in terrific shape and it seems he has been particularly working on his neck strength, as it is thought to help boxers with absorbing punches.

At his media workout, KSI impressed the crowds in attendance, as he began spinning around on his neck with his head on the canvas and then flipped over.

Should KSI come through this bout with Fournier, he is targeting Tommy Fury if he cannot make a fight with long-time rival, Jake Paul.

“My focus is now Tommy,” KSI told the Mirror.

“Because I know I won’t be able to directly get to Jake, he’s doing a runner.

“He doesn’t want it, he was being like ‘yeah, yeah I want to fight KSI’ but when it came to actually doing it he doesn’t want any part of it.

KSI believes he can do what Paul couldn't and KO Fury

“So I’m glad his fanbase, my fans, the general public know that he’s full of s***.”

In terms of a clash with Fury, KSI said: “Everyone sees him as a guy that’s going to destroy me.

“I have no chance. I love that.

“For me, I know it’s going to make me a better boxer, better fighter and better person in general.

“So once I get in the ring and show the world that Tommy Fury ain’t s***, then what?”

What foods should I avoid with diabetes? Advice on best diet plan from a nutrition expert.

More than 10% of Americans have diabetes and roughly half of us are at risk for the disease, but most don’t know how to eat to prevent the worst outcomes.

To some degree, the advice is the same nutritionists give everybody: eat lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds and avoid heavily processed, packaged foods.

Most people know some features of a healthy diet: eating fruits and vegetables and avoiding soda and fast foods.

But it’s more complicated than that. Understanding how diabetes develops can help add to those recommendations and bust some myths.

The first is about weight.

While excess weight increases the risk for diabetes, proper nutrition is likely just as important, said Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, a cardiologist and professor of nutrition at the Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.

“Regardless of your weight, diet has a major impact,” he said.

What is diabetes? What to know about one of the deadliest diseases.

Latest news: Diabetes drug Mounjaro helped people lose 16% of weight, study finds

Here is advice from Mozaffarian to help avoid diabetes or keep it under control:

It’s not just the glucose

Foods that lead to a spike in blood glucose drive up the amount of insulin released into the bloodstream, which over the long term, increases the risk for diabetes and makes the disease harder to control.

So what is glucose?

Refined starches, also known as complex carbohydrates, are chains of glucose molecules and have long been known to trigger this rapid spike in blood glucose. These include white rice, white bread and potatoes.

►Added sugar, a simple carbohydrate, is also well known to trigger diabetes because it’s 50% glucose.

Fructose, which makes up the other 50%, has almost no effect on blood glucose
