November Smoothies and Puritan’s Pride Giveaway

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Wow, what a fast month this was.  Are we really just a month away from Christmas and then we head into 2015?  With all the busy and running around the end of the year, I want to stay as healthy as I can and keep my body running both inside and out.  We are eating some pretty heavy foods and we are dabbling and nibbling here and there.  Sooner or later, it will catch up with us.  Staying energized and bloat free is what I am hoping to do.  I can with the help of Puritan’s Pride.  Yep, it is time again for ANOTHER awesome giveaway.  Recap, I am working along side Puritan’s Pride and Fit Approach for three months with their smoothie challenge.

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…
