My week, healthier water? and giveaway!

OMG! This is my 100th Post! Yay!
It's been a CRAZY week!
Poor little man had to travel to the doctor
with a puke bucket :(
Well, it's been a crazy and not so fun week. My best buddy, Bryce got home late Sunday from a trip with his dad for spring break. He came home with the sniffles, and I knew things would get worse. I had no idea that he would get a stomach bug on top of it! Yikes! So I was home for 4 days with a sick little man. I hated seeing him so sick. Hurts my heart!

So I would have loved to post this on Tuesday, but life kept me away!


Water... To live healthy, we MUST drink it, RIGHT???
Yes, of course! That is the first thing people tell us when we start a healthy lifestyle. Drink your water, and when you have done that, drink some more water... Well, I do that! And since I started working out, I have been searching for something that tastes good and will give me fuel and health benefits. I love drinking water, but sometimes I need something with something with taste. So why not add something that is good for your heart too! Omega Infusion Water... Hmm... Interesting...


When I heard about Omega Infusion Water, a line of water that is not enhanced with sugar, but instead nutrients.... 80 mg of Omega-3s, Vitamin B, and Vitamin C, I was excited but still unsure...

This is from their website.
Ok, so that means it's water with energy (Vitamin B) and antioxidants (vitamin C)... Wow... But Omega-3s... hmmm... What I didn't understand was what did it mean that it was Omega-infused. I found out that Omega-3 fatty acids are fats commonly found in marine and plant oils. Dr. Volker Berl, Chief Technology Officer of Oceans Omega says on their website, "Delivering heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids in enhanced water is something we've been developing for years." This piqued my interest. Recent studies have shown several potential benefits of Omega-3 including:
*Improvement in cognitive function in both children and adults
*Help with depression
*Reduced stress and mental fatigue
*Reduced macular degeneration
*Possible anti-cancer benefits
*Potential to counter inflammation
*Higher level of satiety and appetite reduction

I found out that one bottle of Omega Infusion water delivers 80 mg of essential omega-3s (EPA/DHA), 200% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C and 80 % of four B vitamins. I love the idea of healthy hydration, and even more, I love that it is zero calories.  Most of all, I love the price. It can be found for $1.99 a bottle.

  3. I came home from work and took a nap before getting kids from daycare. 5 days in a row of getting up at 4 am did me in. Felt so more refreshed and ready for the evening!

  11. Didnt have a "love" yourself kinda day but broke down and had a yummy greasy cheeseburger with fries. My first "cheat" since I started weight watchers at the beginning of January. I hit a 30 pound loss this week and decided it was something I've been wanting for a while so went for it! Right back on track and not feeling bad for allowing myself a little (ok big) treat!

  12. I have been working on my spiritual health as well as my fitness a lot lately. I think they all go together. Also, I'm back in the gym again!

  13. I've listened to my body and have taken two days off from exercising and have gone to the Chiropracter to try to fix the soreness I'm feeling on my left side. In the past, I would have just kept pushing myself until I was stuck in bed for days in terrible pain. I'm learning to put my needs first.

  16. I haven't done it yet, but I'm going to the craft store to pick up some supplies to try a new project tonight! Might not seem like something to love myself, but since I'm not good at doing "nothing" working on a project that's not work related is the closest to relaxing I get ;)

  20. You nailed it about wanting something to drink that has taste. Sometimes I add lemon and that helps. I will have to try out the Omega Water.
