Love me some Mickey!
I have to tell you about my recent inspiration…..
I wanted to say that I came across a very inspirational lady who recently commented on my blog and I wanted to share her blog with you. Colleen from Halves for Fifty has walked 20 half marathons and 7 full marathons. Holy cow! I am bowing down to her because she has really inspired me to re think walking more half marathons. I haven’t even walked my 1st one BUT from what I hear once I do, I might just change my mind. I’m so glad that Colleen came to my blog and commented. So. happy!
I have been sent some products free for review that I wanted to be sure to share with you.
First is my new SIGG reusable water bottle
SIGG is healthy, using a baked on, non-toxic inner lining ensures no metallic taste or taste transfer. It’s also a healthy alternative to plastic bottles. I LOVE reusable water bottles and SIGG is just so stylish, I really like the options. I totally need the carrying strap now though. I would definitely recommend these water bottles. There is one thing I really have to get used to though and that is the twist off and on cap. I’m so used to the water bottles I use on a daily basis (not for workouts) having a flip top lid and this one you have to twist off and on every time you want a drink. That initially was the only drawback for me. But now I don’t have a chance of spilling it all over my desk right? I definitely think this would make a great gift idea for the active person in your life.
And for something tasty….. FUEL UP THIS FALL
I had the chance to sample some the CalNaturale Svelte beverages (I just LOVE the sayings on these).
It is an awesome all natural meal replacement, pre-workout drink or snack. It leaves me full for quite some time and taste good. I was so nervous to try it because I have not had much luck in the past with drinks like this on the taste front. But I was proved wrong with Svelte. So tasty! Favorite so far was the Chocolate and Cappuccino. I didn’t much care for the Vanilla and I still have the Spiced Chai to taste.
These drinks are low in sugar (9 grams per full container), high in protein (16g of organic protein from fresh organic soymilk) and a good source of fiber. Also dairy and gluten free. You can learn more at their website Svelte|Calnaturale.
Hope ya’ll are having a great week! Hubby got into a bit of an accident last night and I’m thankful he’s fine. The front bumper needs to be replaced at the tune of $800+ but no worries, thank goodness for insurance right? While I have you, tell me one thing you are thankful for in your life.
Thanks so much for the shout out in today’s entry. I’ll also agree with you that once you do your first half (well maybe a few days after!) you’ll be thinking about the next one. Since the January Disney race is likely to conflict with the Jamacian race, consider the Princess Half, its at the end of February and is predominately a chick race- tons of fun!
All the half marathon talk gets me thinking that maybe I should do that too! 🙂 There are women’s running/walking events in Finland but I’m not aware of any half-marathons.
That SIGG bottle is really pretty!
Let me know if you do any walking events in Finland.
Love my SIGG bottle. Using it often!
