PrettyFit!

My first PrettyFit pack arrived in the mail yesterday! So excited! I received a lot of awesome goodies that I’m excited to try out. ImPrettyFit is a monthly subscription pack that includes supplements, health snacks, and other fitness gear based on your healthy life style. This month I chose the Bikini Pack and this is what I received:

Everything in this month’s pack totaled to be worth over $100! My favorite items so far are:

  • Shred Her by NLA – All natural fat burners, 60 capsules included! This bottle alone is worth $39.99. Clean energy, no jitters, and full of great ingredients that don’t damage your metabolism. So far I like it, but it’s only been one day!
  • MateFit 7 Day Mini TeaTox – So far this product is awesome, I not only love the taste, but I love how it instantly ‘de-bloats’ you. Conveniently Aunt Flo is visiting this week but this tea is keeping me tight, lean, and ‘deflated’.

Each pack comes with a ‘mini mag’ that breaks down the ingredients of each product, explains what each product does, and gives the retail value and WHY they chose each product. They even included a Glute and Ab workout that I want to try this week! I’ll share it with you in another post later this week, so stay tuned!

This specially designed kit contains 2 different types of 100% natural teas to help you look and feel great by both boosting your metabolism and helping you detox.

I haven’t tried everything in my pack yet since I just got it yesterday, but I’m excited to try the Optimum Nutrition Green Apple Amino Acids. I’m a huge fan of the Optimum Nutrition Amino Acids, I currently have the Watermelon flavor in my cabinet that I like to take before my workouts. I love the surge of energy I feel with these aminos, the best part is being able to use as much or as little as you want based on how strenuous your workout will be. I bet Green Apple will be bomb 🙂

Stay tuned for more updates! I’m extremely happy with my switch from Sample Society and Ipsy to a more fitness focused monthly subscription. Sure it might be more expensive, but I will benefit the most from this type of subscription. Plus I can let you guys know how I like what I get and can recommend more ‘fitness and health’ supplements and products in the future, sorry for throwing you a curveball with beauty reviews! Although I won’t completely nix those!

Each purchase you make with PrettyFit will donate to Vitamin Angels; a non-profit organization that provides essential vitamins and minerals to expectant mothers and children in need.

Happy Hump Day!

Hey guys, I dunno why, but I feel like I haven’t written in a reaaaaally long time, even though I posted a ‘sneak preview’ photo yesterday, and wrote quite the hefty post on Sunday night.

I guess I feel like I’ve been ‘mentally’ outta sorts these past few days. I’m not feeling well today, ill enough to call off at work and not gettin’ any better. I’ve also been extremely distracted, but what, I’m not sure. Some days I feel like I have a million thoughts flying through my brain, even writing about them is futile, they won’t slow down!

I’ve been killing my workouts, but I feel like my body needs another shock. I need to push myself HARDER, try something different! To be honest, I need to be stronger on my diet, some times that extra scoop of hummus sounds too tasty! I haven’t had a Quest Bar since Sunday, super proud of that 🙂 Look at me, I sound like a recovering addict! Ha!

I’ve also been off of nut butter, for the most part. But I just HAD to go back to Grocery Outlet yesterday to stock up on Maranatha Caramel Almond Spread. Let me tell you something! Those 12 oz. jars at Grocery Outlet are $2.99 each, they retail at $13 a jar! I bought 10 jars for LESS than $30…. on Amazon a 3 pack costs $39.99, YIKES! Savin’ those dolla’ dolla’ billsssss!

Other great news, I received my pre-ordered Girl Scout cookies at work this week, super pumped! I had no idea that 11 boxes looked like so much. Turns out Derek bought Girl Scout cookies from a gal at his work too…. only he gets to eat them, and I have to watch. I was creepin’ around his stash and even went as far as opening a box to SMELL them, ewww I’m such a creep! Self torture! Thankfully I couldn’t smell them 🙂

Lately I’ve been a wizard in the kitchen. I keep meaning to take pictures and post recipes, buuuuut I’m also very lazy, horrible at taking photos, and my food doesn’t look as bomb as ‘Food Porn’. Not fair…. Maybe tomorrow morning my pancakes won’t look like shit and I can post a new recipe! In the meantime, here’s a photo and smoothie recipe from Monday morning that I never posted, enjoy!

I have been experimenting with new protein flavors. I just received my new Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl Whey Protein and Peanut Butter Marshmallow Whey Protein. The Cinnamon Swirl flavor makes bomb oatmeal pancakes and the Peanut Butter Marshmallow makes a KILLER smoothie 🙂

Right now I’m working on some Chia Seed pudding, I’ll take a pic and post the recipe when it’s done chilling, IF it looks good 😉

Welp goodnight folks, hope everyone is having a great week so far, stay tuned~
