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…

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…

#FuelYourBetter With #Vega

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. I was NOT disappointed!  Holly run.  I can’t believe the how great…  Read More…

Nature Box In August…They Have Done It Again

It never ceases to amaze me that each time I get a Nature Box delivered here at the house and I open it to see what great snacks they have added for that month and they out do themselves.  The August Nature Box arrived last week and I am so excited. The Sweet Blueberry Almonds are EXACTLY that! Blueberry. In fact when eating these, I though of the Violet Beauregarde character in Willy Wonka. They made me smile.
