I have recommitted myself to eating healthy in the last week. There really is no magic pill. I just have to do it. For a while now, I have been telling myself that I will start Monday or I will start soon, and I always came up with an excuse. Well, no more. I have been doing this without ANY cheating this week, and I feel good about it. I can do it! I want to do it.
Anyone who has ever tried to change their eating habits and succeeded can tell you that you truly have to WANT it... you can't be wishy washy about it because it won't work. Something is different this time. I feel the change in me. I want this. I am tired of giving up and tired of not trying hard enough. I want to look in the mirror and like what I see!
The busier I get, the less time I have to eat healthy. I don't plan well so I need of feeling something that I can grab quickly. When Fitfluential asked me to review Isopure's whey protein isolate, I was excited to try.
This girl wants to be a lean mean carb free machine. The Isopure Zero Carb powder packs 50 grams (per 2-scoop serving) of 100% pure whey protein isolate, without a carb in sight. And it still comes with glutamine, vitamins, minerals and nutrients to keep your muscles tough, lean and ready to rock it. Isopure Zero Carb has 10,900 mg of BCAA's and 4.6 grams of L-Glutamine in every serving, and is lactose and gluten free.
This whey protein isolate powder is available in 1lb, 3lb and 7.5lb size tubs, and comes in a variety of seriously delicious flavors: Creamy Vanilla, Dutch Chocolate (Low Carb), Strawberries & Cream, Cookies & Cream, Banana Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip, Toasted Coconut (Low Carb), Mango Peach, Alpine Punch, Apple Melon and Pineapple Orange Banana. Best of all, it was easy to drink. I don't mix up fancy protein shakes on most days. I grab it quickly and mix with water and shake. This tasted good, wasn't too thick and was super easy!

Isopure also has a clear protein drink. The microfiltration process used to create Isopure is so complete that it is the only completely clear milk protein when it is dissolved in water. (Please note that since the powders have a vitamin/mineral premix, the powder will be cloudy when dissolved as not all the vitamins/minerals are soluble) It comes in delicious fruity flavors. My favorite is the grape frost. Other flavors include: coconut, passion fruit, pineapple orange banana, icy orange, apple melon, blue raspberry, alpine punch and mango peach.

Check out my son in Reebok #Zig Big N Fast EX

Reebok Zig Big N Fast EX

My son is a very active little man. He is always doing something. I often hear parents complain that their children are always playing video games or something like that. Not my kid! He would rather be playing outside than doing pretty much anything else. 

He loves to run, shoot hoops, play frisbee, and so much more. While he does this, he wants shoes that look cool and feel good. I want shoes that fit him right and give him support. 

We got really lucky because these Reebok Zigs do it all! First of all, when the box came in the mail from FitFluential and Reebok, he couldn't believe that he was getting a chance to review shoes like I have on my blog. Then he couldn't believe that they were so "sic and awesome!"  He kept them in the box and walked around with them showing the family for an entire day! He's a HUGE Tampa Bay Bucs fan, so the colors were absolutely perfect for him. He says that he jumps higher, runs faster and is even a better frisbee golf player!  

"Reebok ZigTech powers the way you play, with a super-sized midsole to cushion your biggest movements. Make a Big Impact with Reebok ZigTech."  And let me tell you, there is a lot of jumping and impact with this kid. He is really supported in these shoes. 

Features:
The Reebok ZigTech is built to energize your run, providing full length energy from heel to toes. 
    SUPERSIZED ZIGTECH MIDSOLE: Engineered for maximum cushioning in the heel and responsive acceleration in the forefoot. 
    TPU PROPULSION PLATE: channels energy at impact for lightweight, accelerated mid foot transition.
    NANOBREEZE: lightweight mesh upper provides superior breathability and comfort. 

My son LOVES these shoes! He now has a total of 3 pairs of ZigTech shoes... And nobody has more shoes than this kid! Seriously, shoes are all he asks for for birthdays, holidays, and rewards. He is a shoe-guy and these shoes are tops on his list! 

These shoes are available at Finish Line or finishline.com

My son told me that you had to see this video! It's every active kid's dream to play like this!

MUST HAVE: Gear in the New Year! #UAWomen Prize Pack Giveaway

The new year has begun, and I have started my training. I am participating in a half marathon in March.  That means cold runs outside. Yes, I live in Florida, and I know it's not COLD like some of you deal with, but it is still cold out. I need the right gear to keep me warm. You can imagine my surprise when I got a package from Under Armour to use for my review and giveaway.  It was INCREDIBLE! They were so generous to us!

This giveaway includes women's coffee run gloves, an eclipse StudioLux sports bra, black pants, a head wrap AND Speed Form shoes... This is a HUGE giveaway! Approximately a $250 prize! And this stuff is the best.

I love the way this gear washes up! Not only to I look good while I am running, but I also feel good. The sweat wicking material keeps me dry and warm!

Under Armour is a brand the inspires and motivates! There are many featured athletes who represent Under Armour. Our (my son and my) favorite Under Armour athlete is Steph Curry.

Getting #FITwithASICS Have you seen these shoes?

Have you seen these shoes yet?


They are the lightest shoe I have worn recently. I cannot believe how light and cushiony they are. I literally feel like I am putting on a sock. It is like no other. It's truly a customized fit. When I am walking or working out, they are supportive and comfortable, and when I am just hanging around, I LOVE wearing them, even without socks! They are the BEST!
Check out the link:ASICS WEBSITE

I recently received these cool and fun shoes from Asics. The GEL-Fit Sanas are incredible shoes that can be worn to a barre class or to go shopping in the city. They are fashionable and versatile: this studio cushioned training shoe fits your foot like a glove. They are light and flexible with a customized fit. The Gel-Fit Sana adapts and supports your foot with the inner lining from the heel to the forefoot, while providing a barefoot-like sensation.
I really do love them. You need to check out their website and follow them on twitter and instagram. Check out these amazing colors too!

What is your go-to shoe for workouts and play?

#Atkins Milkshakes! Saving breaking and helping meet New Years Resolutions!


For years, all I hear is people telling me how important it is to eat a healthy breakfast. And I know it to be true... However... I don't do it daily like I should. I am always running late and grabbing something quick rather than well balanced. I know that this causes cravings and it doesn't give me the fuel I need to get through the day. I know all of this. But I still struggle.

Atkins offers milkshakes now as meal replacements. This is so great for someone like me. No matter how organized I am, I am still managing to run out the door in the morning. That is why I am IN LOVE with Atkins shakes.

The delicious Atkins shakes offer 8 flavors which are an optimal low-sugar mix of protein and essential vitamins and minerals. Perfect for a light breakfast on the go or when you are craving a late afternoon sweet snack.
It is my New Year's resolution to take better care of myself, and that is just what I am doing with Atkins. I have lost 18 lbs so far, and I am going to continue losing til I have no more to lose and I feel great!

In October, I spent a week on the plan and did really well. After the holidays, I do need a bit of a jump start, so I am going back to week one. I am going to flip my body's metabolic switch again. I need to get back on track and make 2015 the healthiest year of my life!
