New Chapter...

Image
This summer has been an absolute BLAST!! I have gone to FCA Camp, Myrtle Beach, Destin, and I am flying to Minneapolis this weekend! It has been NON-STOP fun!







 I've had a blast with my wonderful boyfriend, Jared, his family, and my family. I've had plenty of POOL DAYS with my friends. I've babysat precious little kids. I cannot complain one bit! :)






But, starting next week, I will be in TEACHER mode. I have orientation with my parents on the 9th, and our first half day is on August 13. I can't believe I'm actually a TEACHER. I'm no longer the student teacher who is under the guidance of a mentor teacher. I'm ON MY OWN and I won't lie, I'm a little nervous. BUT, I know that "I can do ALL things through CHRIST who strengthens me!" - Phil 4:13. 

My other 1st grade teacher is wonderful and very helpful. I know we are going to have a great year! I'm so excited to meet my students! 
On one hand, I'm sad that I won't be around my frie…

Nutrilite Protein Bars Review

My Review:
10/10!
First of all, these bars tasted VERY close to an actual cinnamon bun! I loved the texture. It was dense and chewy! I enjoyed the bits of walnuts sprinkled on top. This bar kept me full for a few hours! It was the perfect afternoon snack and post-workout fuel!

Shakeology Review

Image
Here's some info about Shakeology: Shakeology uses a proprietary blend of digestive enzymes and prebiotics to gently and efficiently eliminate toxins. Then a combination of antioxidants, phytonutrients, adaptogens, and many other rare ingredients give your body the essential nutrients you can’t get from a normal diet. You get a salad bowl’s worth of fruits and vegetables in a single glass. Whole-food ingredients—all-natural foods that still maintain the vitamins, minerals, and fiber often stripped from highly processed foods—deliver these nutrients to help your body shed stored fat and promote optimum health.


I was sent the Tropical Strawberry Flavor to review.
8/10
It was great mixed with ice for a simple smoothie, but if I was to try it again, I would add some fruit and yogurt to give it a little more pizazz! The interesting thing that I really tasted was CINNAMON. It was definitely something that I'd never tasted in a smoothie before. I drank this before my DANCE IT OUT wo…

About TIme Whey Protein Isolate

Here is some info on About Time from their website: Prepare to expect more from protein supplements and meal replacement bars, and less of the things your body can do without. About Time is simply the cleanest protein product on the market today: No artificial flavors and no artificial sweeteners. The difference comes from using only natural ingredients and 100% whey protein isolate, not the less pure protein concentrates that have flooded the market. The result is a quality you can taste, and a nutritional superiority your body will feel. Check out all the About Time products at our online store. The test results for heavy metals in About Time protein are impressive. The numbers are extremely LOW. Many of the top brands of whey protein have high heavy metals numbers.

Vacations Galore!!! :)

Image
I've been on vacation for pretty much the whole month of July! It's been FABULOUS! Sorry I've been lacking in posts lately! Please forgive me!
First up, we went to Myrtle Beach for Jared's golf tournaments. He played in two events. 

His mom and I got pedicures, while Jared and his dad played a practice round in the middle of the week! It was pampering at it's best! 
There was definitely a new obsession formed... WEDDING CAKE FRO-YO!  OH MY WORD.  I thought Cake Batter tasted good... it's got NOTHING on Wedding Cake flavor!!! YUUUUUUUM!!!


 We went to Broadway on the Boardwalk in Myrtle Beach. It was neat to walk around and see all the unique stores! We had fun!
After a week in Myrtle Beach, it was time to head to KY to attend a wedding. It was Jared's long time friend Megan and Joel! We had an absolute BLAST dancing the night away and we definitely made a few trips to the photo booth! ;)




My dad and Jared could NOT stop flying this toy helicopter!!! Boys and…

************************************************************************** My Review: 7/10
This protein was a little bit chalky and clumpy, but the taste was okay! I tried it in a yogurt mess with the first packet, but that was not the best tasting option for my tastebuds. Next time, I tried it in a smoothie and it tasted MUCH better! I liked that it only had 70 calories as opposed to a lot of other protein powders that have over 100!

Working Out on Vacation

Image
What do you do when you are on vacation without a gym?
Well, Jared and I brought a few pieces of equipment WITH us and got our workout on inside the condo!!!
First up, we did some different exercises with the TRX, medicine ball, resistance band, foam roller, and our body weight. 

The TRX goes over the door and is great for working your back, shoulders, biceps, triceps, just depending on what moves you do. 













I'm so grateful for Jared showing me some awesome moves that you DON'T need a gym for! Previously, I would get TOTALLY bummed if we went on vacation without a gym. But, Jared has shown me SO many variations of exercises that you can do and it makes me shake up my routine, which has REALLY shown results! :) 
The other awesome advice that he has given me and has improved my overall health and fitness is to EAT PROTEIN like it's going out of style! I feel TEN TIMES stronger ever since we started dating and I've been eating more!!! If you missed my previous post about t…
