Loving the prAna Winter Collection {Review}

I am so super jazzed to be sharing prAna with you.  Let me tell you a little about this company and share with you my thoughts. The company is a husband and wife team out of Carlsbad, CA.  “This year, we celebrate 22 years in existence. We started simply, rooted in idealism and a timeless belief that companies like ours should strive to give much more than they take from the world. That notion keeps us focused on making products that look great, but that are also easier on the planet’s resources”.  I love the message behind the company, I love the line.  Everything from workout wear, yoga, running, walking, to lifestyle living.  I received the Prism Capri Pant and the Nina Sweater and I LOVE both pieces.  I am able to wear the leggings for running, or a Pure Barre class and throw on the sweater when done and…  Read More…

It’s a Win with WIN Sports Detergent and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received product to review through my affiliation with Fit Approach. As always, my opinion is just my own and honest. Let’s talk laundry, shall we.  No one knows laundry like moms {okay not fair, I am sure some dads know laundry} but let’s just go with this.  Laundry and family … yikes.  Am I right?  We have two separate baskets in this house for laundry and I wish I could say I were so organized that one was for whites and one for colors.  Only even I am not that good.  Two baskets, always full and once they are empty and I do the happy dance, then BAM! full again.  Seriously, where does all of it come from? As often as I keep up on the laundry, it still tends to smell “mucky” in those baskets, especially when I am reaching deep down into them to pull the…  Read More…

Puritan’s Pride Seasonal Smoothie and Giveaway

Smoothies are so great no matter what time of the year.  I love making a smoothie for a pre-run or post-run quick meal.  I make smoothies for the kids for a quick addition to their breakfast in the morning, an afternoon snack after school.  Smoothies even make for a great dessert in the evening.  With so many options out there to make and come up with, it sure helps when I have Puritan’s Pride and their products to get creative.   I have been lucky enough to join Puritan’s Pride and their three month smoothie campaign.  While I make and share my own recipes, I look forward to seeing yours. For the next three months, I am partnered with Puritan’s Pride to create and share my own smoothie recipes and how I incorporate them with protein powders and superfoods-based products. Puritan’s Pride® (http://www.puritan.com) began over 40 years ago, with the…  Read More…

Nuun Hydration Energy

Hydrating is key always, all day long.  It doesn’t matter what time of the year or kind of weather.  For some, hydrating is more difficult because remembering to drink water all day OR making ourselves drink water all day can be a chore. I actually love to drink water all day and I honestly do.  I am not just hydrating because of all the running I do or working out {when I get that in}, I hydrate because I am aging and getting older, so I make sure to nourish my skin the best I can and that would be through tons of water {I want to hit 50 and still have great skin}. I have been given an opportunity to try Nuun Hydration again {love them} and this time around I was sent the Nuun Energy  tabs.  Did you say “energy”?  Heck yeah, sign me up.  The shipment arrived…  Read More…

Runtastic Orbit Has Arrived

I am so super jazzed to be sharing the latest with you.  Okay listen, I am not the most tech savy gal out there and I am NOT really into gadgets or the newest and latest {I still have my Samsung Galaxy S 2 and the original IPod shuffle} so yeah, I am sort of behind.  However, I am up to speed with the app Runtastic Orbit and the Me App.   Thanks to Fit Approach and Runtastic who so kindly reached out and sent me this newest gadget.  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, as with most new things that require downloading and connecting, etc.  With easy step by step instructions, I was able to get my Runtastic Pro and Me App up and running on my Android Phone.

It’s all about #Vega  again.  I LOVE this brand and all of their products.  I am sharing today Vega Sport Energizer PRE-Workout.  Thanks to Fit Approach and Vega, I was given a box to try and used this for my half marathon training. ♥ Question for you … how do you #FuelYourBetter? Since running more now in order to prep for my very first half marathon {yikes}, I have been using Vega Pre-Workout Energizer before heading out the door.  I love that Vega is plant-based.  I had not tried this particular product of theirs yet, so I was excited to receive it.  Following directions, I drank this about 20 mins {give or take} right before heading out the door for a run.  As with any product, I did wonder if I would be able to notice a difference.
