Snacking Healthy + A Smarty Pants Vitamins Review

Disclaimer … Product and compensation has been approved via my affiliation with Fit Approach in exchange for a review. Being active all day means I can easily run myself down.  I tend to need a nap in the afternoon just to regroup before getting the kids from school.  A normal day in this household could be something like this … {each day varies, but you get the idea}   Up at 5:00 a.m. to make coffee for the husband Head back to bed and  …. Watch the early morning news and drink coffee Check in with emails from overnight Schedule my Pure Barre class for the day Start waking kids up for school Make breakfast {I do make breakfast} the MOST important meal for the kids of the day Pack lunches {and any extra snacks for after school athletic practices} Drop child #1 off at school Get back home and…  Read More…

It’s A Pure Barre Giveaway

If you have ever taken time to read me or follow along, you know I am a huge fan of Pure Barre. Since the studio opened here in our small town of Sonoma, I have been attending and loving it.  Pure Barre has been a great addition to my running routine, my body is core strong, my legs feel great and the “tush” … well let’s just say I am 48 and think I look pretty darn great!  Pure Barre can be intimidating.  I can tell you that it takes time to get the feel for it.  The moves must be exact and kept very small.  I always tell anyone who asks, they need to give it more than a week to figure it out. It’s a #PureBarre #giveaway on the blog @fitnessmom1 Click To Tweet That little red ball, the barre and those double tubes are something else.  Add…  Read More…

Chef V Cleanse Review and 55% Promo Code

We are pretty much getting back to normal around here since the holidays.  The kids are back in school.  I am on track with my Pure Barre workouts, the house is in order, I am in the early stages of changing my eating.  Trying to delete most sugars {more than I normally do}.  It is the new year and time to recharge and restart.  The year would not start out right without my Chef V Cleanse.  Let me take you back to the beginning. I came across the Chef V Cleanse program sometime last year while searching for green juice/drinks.  I know I make my own at home, but I was interested in having ready made and easy to grab and go for on the run.  I had always played around with the idea of a cleanse just to really see how my body would handle one and to detox…  Read More…

Winter Hydrating and SOS Mango

*Disclosure* I was given product and compensation for my work with SOS and Fit Approach for my review.  As always, my enthusiasm is my own. Hydration is pretty much a word we need to hear and use all year round.  There is no season for hydrating, it should just be given that we need to be properly hydrating our bodies all year round.  Hydrating is easier for some and more difficult for others.  Some of us can drink glasses of water all day long and some need help getting water in them.  Check out SOS Hydration.  The fast-acting electrolyte replacement and hydration drink that helps combat dehydration caused by active lifestyles and physical performance. @fitnessmom1 @fitapproach @SOSRehydrate win #realhydration #giveaway Click To Tweet Understanding dehydration here SOS Hydration … who uses it?  Olympians Professional Sports Teams Professional Athletes Weekend Warriors Anyone with an active lifestyle … Are you active?  Then…  Read More…

Hemp Hearts by Manitoba Harvest

*Disclosure, I received product from Manitoba Harvest via my affiliation with Fit Approach.  As always, my thoughts are my own. Every once in a while I will toss a bag of Manitoba Hemp Hearts or a container of Manitoba Hemp Protein Powder into my grocery cart.  I love Manitoba products.  Did you know that they are the worlds largest hemp food manufacturer and they make and sell their own line of hemp foods? What is Hemp?  Well the fast easy answer is this … A super plant. At the top part of the hemp plant you will find the hard hemp seed. This small seed “seeds” nutritiously delicious products like Hemp Hearts, hemp protein powder, and hemp oil.  Hemp foods taste great! Hemp foods have a slightly nutty taste that complements any dish.  Read more about Hemp here.

*Disclsoure – I am an affiliate with the Chef V brand.  My review and opinion are strictly my own. I spent so much time researching cleanses.  I was always just waiting for the right one to come along and the right time to do one {okay, so I had to talk myself into finally starting}.   It wasn’t until I came across the Chef V Organic Cleanse that I finally said “yes”.  I have done the Chef V Cleanse twice and was pleasantly happy each time.  With easy to follow step by step instructions, the Chef V Cleanse was a piece of cake {pun intended}.  You can read about my own experience here If a cleanse is your thing and your are ready to try one out, don’t forget to use the Promo Code FMWC to receive 55% off.

Peanut Butter Protein Banana Waffles

*Disclosure, I was compensated and given product for my recipe and review of Mighty Nut through my affiliation with Fit Approach.  Recipe is my own and opinion. Making breakfast for the kids each morning is something I really make a point of doing.  I want to send them out the door ready for the day ahead and we have all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Trying to get creative is the hard part, but the kids love pancakes or waffles as their favorite morning meal.  I am always looking to keep the ingredients good and healthy for all the meals and at times {many times}, I “sneak” the goods into their food. I can now add some extra good to their waffles or pancakes with Mighty Nut powered peanut butter.  This is awesome, I love using powdered peanut butter in smoothies, shakes, making dips…  Read More…

Taking Your Vitamins the “Smarty Pants” Way

*I received product from Smarty Pants with my affiliation with Fit Approach.  My thoughts and review are my own. Eat right, drink plenty of water and take your vitamins.  How many times have we said that to our children or have heard it ourselves and been doing that for years?  Eating healthy and really making a point of adding the freshest of foods to our diet is so key to all things well being.  Our bodies, our mind, our moods, our skin, teeth, hair, nails.  Everyday just feeling good comes from taking care of ourselves and adding vitamins to a daily routine is something we can incorporate along with healthy diet. With Smarty Pants Vitamins, I am able to have a complete multi vitamin for adults. Full Multivitamin Eco-Friendly Omega 3’s Vitamins D3 & B12 With the travel pack, I can make taking my vitamins even easier.  They are already…  Read More…

Zarbee’s Naturals at Target

*Disclosure … I received product and compensation for my thoughts on Zarbee’s Naturals. In case you missed it, I recently shared my thoughts on Zarbee’s Naturals.  With busy schedules and sometimes finding it difficult to remember to take our vitamins, we can have an easier time of it with Zarbee’s Naturals.  These are individual packets of vitamin supplements that you add to hot or cold water {depending on the blend}. Let’s recap … “Dr. Zak Zarbock, a physician and father, could not find effective chemical-free products to keep the entire family healthy, so he went on to create his own”.  Zarbee’s Naturals are all with handpicked natural ingredients.  Sweetened with honey and other naturals.  You can find a Zarbee’s product for just about any age and anyone.  They have a great children’s line also.  Perfect for back to school time and keeping our immune systems right.
