To be honest, I have never tried a pre-work out and I was a bit nervous.  I don't really like the idea of feeling cracked out when trying to break a sweat.  I only drink green tea and if I do have coffee now a days, I feel overly wired!  Not a fun feeling when you crash!  

I tried WM Nutrition and I have to say, I really liked it!  I was worried that it would have a horrible taste as a lot of things do, but it actually tasted like pixie sticks!  PLUS,  I had no crash and no jitters!  I was so happy that I didn't feel like I was sweating from the pre-workout, thankfully it was fun a successful work out!! 

Since I liked their pre-workout so much, I ended up getting their AdvantraSlim and Sleep It Off.  I was really excited to try Sleep It Off because as a creative, my mind never shuts off.  I've friend everything to help me sleep, and stay asleep.  NOTHING WORKS!  No joke, the nights I've taken Sleep It Off, I don't even notice I've fallen asleep.  In the morning I feel rested and ready for my day.  I really don't need a cup of tea on mornings like that.   Days that I do need a caffeine boost, I sadly find myself exhausted by noon.  No one likes to crash like that when you have so much to do in less than 24hrs.  AdvantraSlim is actually a good energy boost for me midday. They come in fun flavors too like Lemonade, Strawberry Daiquiri, Key Lime Pie, Peach Mango, and Blue Berry Acai.  Just having the little ouch in my purse is really convenient to just put in my bottled water.  


10/10 would recommend!

Juice Co. Choice of the Week: #G04

This week, my favorite go to healthy choice is from Juice Co., a local pressed juice business in Los Gatos, Ca. They have a wide selection of juices that fits your needs.  Right now I've been needing a solid detox and a mineral boost.  Drink #G04, had all of that an more.  This drink in particular is good for anti inflammatory, detoxifying, plant protein, vitamins A + C + K, and because of the chia seeds, it's high in fiber, iron omega 3s, and protein.  All of that in one drink!  Im sure you're thinking that it must have a weird texture drinking something with the chia seeds inside of it.   I grew up with a lot of cousins who are picky eaters, so I understand that this isn't a selection for everyone.  If you can get past the chia seeds, it's a really beneficial drink.  It doesn't have a earthy taste from the greens and beets because the pineapple gives it a nice balance of sweetness.  Trust me, you're body will thank you later!

 #G04 Ingredients: 
Beet Green
Chia Seeds

Siren Snacks

It’s been a little over a year now, but I have decided to take a shift in my life.  A change for the better and started with tackling my heath.  Sure I’m young, but better to start early than not at all or even when it’s too late.  SO, I decided to cut out a lot of different foods in my everyday diet and I have never felt so good before.  
I no longer eat:
Dairy (only eggs)
Raw Tomatos
I thought I was going to die giving up pizzas, cheeseburgers, ice cream, bacon, and everything good in life.  Truthfully, I’ve never felt so good before, so its helped me motivate myself to stay away from those foods.  I don’t need coffee first thing in the morning or at all for that matter to get myself up and out of bed.  My hair FINALLY started growing and has never been this long before, (Trust me, my hair would not grow and I have tried EVERYTHING!). My acne is to a minimal, except for my average hormonal break out. Also, I’ve lost all inflammation in my body and a dropped a little wright (wasn’t my goal, but who doesn’t love loosing a few pounds).  Changing my diet really changed my life for the better, but the hardest thing is finding certain brands I like.  I’ve been so used to brands I grew up loving or have fallen in love with over the years. 

Now trying to start all over is an adventure. I have tried so many new brands, but they are either disgusting, smell funky or even crumble before even opening the package.  Recently on that adventure I discovered Siren Snacks. This plant based protein snack is really tasty and a few of them filled me up while I was on the go.  Being on this lifestyle change, I miss having cookies and brownies, but these vegan, gluten free, non-GMO bites have filled my cravings. My personal favor is the Lemon Poppy Seed!!
