Fitness Confidential Book Review and #Giveaway

Capture

This Fitness Confidential Book Review and giveaway post has been sponsored but all opinions expressed are my own. Getting in shape seems like a goal that I never actually achieve.  I work at it a lot. I eat healthy..most of the time.  I exercise...sometimes.  Okay, I exercise when I start to feel guilty and my pants are starting to not fit any more.  It isn't that I don't WANT to get in shape.  I just seem to lack the motivation.  I am slowly working at it, though, and if you want to get in shape, too, than Fitness Confidential might be a … [Read more...]

Workout Tips for Beginners from a #ReebokMom #sponsored

workout tips for beginners

This post on workout tips for beginners is part of a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Reebok. I received a Famous Footwear gift card to purchase a pair of Reebok shoes to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating. For years, my husband has been an avid runner. He runs in the rain, at 6 AM on a Saturday morning, and in 100 degree temperatures.  Working out is vitally important to him and something he always finds time for.  Personally, I struggle with finding the time and motivation to get out and exercise but I … [Read more...]

Light Up Your Workout Routine With Panther Vision

Have you ever tried walking a hyper dog at night with your hands full of leash, flashlight, and a bag of something that said dog decided to leave in your neighbor's yard?  Ever try running at night while gripping a flashlight in your sweaty hand?  How about camping in the middle of nowhere and trying to pee on a tree at night while holding on to a flashlight and a roll of biodegradable toilet paper?  I have done all of these things and can tell you, an extra hand would have really come in...well...handy!  While walking, running and hiking in … [Read more...]

Heath Benefits of Coconut Water in Your Diet

In the last couple of years, my husband has started running marathons and the training can be rather brutal at times.  While I don't mind the occasional jog of a mile or two, he regularly runs 10 or 15 miles (or even more) and actually enjoys it.  Yes, I think he is a little crazy, too, but he is certainly staying healthy!  When he runs, he sweats.  And I don't mean he sweats just a LITTLE bit.  I mean it looks like he jumped in a pool by the time he has finished his run.  Because of this, he really has trouble trying to stay hydrated during … [Read more...]

My Fitness Pal App Makes Fitness Goals Achievable

When I was younger, staying thin and healthy was fairly easy for me.  I ate whatever I wanted and had plenty of free time (and energy!) to exercise.  Then I had 2 kids....and turned 40...and I started noticing a few extra pounds sneaking on.  I found myself skipping dessert for the first time ever and had to force myself to get up and get some exercise now and then.  And those sneaky pounds still haven't come off.  YET!  My New Year's resolution is to pay more attention to what I eat and to increase the amount of exercise that I get so I can … [Read more...]

Sport Earphones: Yurbuds Inspire for Women #INSPIREFORWOMEN

red sport earphones for women

No matter what room of the house you are in or what time of day it is there is almost always music playing in my house.  There is a docking station in several rooms and both floors of the house have a full stereo system.  Needless to say, we spend a lot of money on iTunes!  When we leave the house, we take our music with us on our iPad, iPod, or cell phone depending on which member of the family it is.  I have gone through a lot of ear buds looking for ones that fit comfortably.  There have been some hard plastic ones that I really think would … [Read more...]
