A few current favorites

Hey guys and gals! I hope your week was fantastic and you worked towards your goals.  If you didn’t hit your goals, that’s okay!  There is always the next week to kick the goals butt!

This past week I worked to reduce my sugar intake and there were times when I struggled with this goal.  On the plus side, there were numerous times I was able to tell the sugar to take a hike!  The best way I found to eliminate the sugar craving was by having water by my side at ALL times.  I am weak in my efforts if that bottle is not close enough to save me.

On that note, I am a water bottle junkie.  I love to find new water bottles that I feel make drinking water even easier.  I don’t like the water bottles with metal because it seems to have that metallic taste no matter what.  I was obsessed with my contigo water bottle for the longest time, but I found a glass bottle (with a safe rubber sleeve to protect it from my clumsiness).  I took that bottle with me everywhere.  Eventually, the bottle dropped in just the right manner that the cap broke. *Insert extremely sad face here*  Until Christmas, that is.  My inlaws found this BPA free plastic bottle that looked exactly like a large water bottle!  You can open it two different ways, which is extremely convenient.  The larger opening allows you to add ice, lemon juice, or powders.  The smaller opening is the size of a standard water bottle.  Seriously, how can one individual be so excited for a water bottle?  I just love this thing!

There are a variety of colors to choose from as well!

The other thing I am obsessed with right now is my Cellucor Alpha Amino in Watermelon flavor.  I love the flavor and it gives me a nice burst of energy during my workouts.  I also will drink a glass if I’m feeling really tired during the day.   I’ve attached a link to the picture if you want to order this for yourself!

So, now that I’ve shared a few of my new favorite things, I’m going to set a few goals for the week.  First goal, work out 5 times for a minimum of 30 minutes.  Second, no foods after 7:30pm.  Third, pack healthy lunches and snacks to avoid the sugar craving during the afternoon. Final, drink 100oz of water per day. I’ve got to put these water bottles to good use, right?

What are you going to do this week to make positive changes in your life?  Feel free to share them and I will check in with you periodically throughout the week to see how they are coming!

You can do anything you set your mind to! Be confident, be fit, be you!!!!
