Fitness Update & E-Hydrate!

Trying to “get into shape” is sometimes a LOT harder than it seems. AMIRIGHT?! Somedays I’m ON. Gym, water, healthy food, BAM!  Somedays I want 42 cheeseburgers. And eat a lot of chocolate. 

But nonetheless, we’ve been trying to get into shape! It’s been going surprisingly well and M and I are both losing weight! But more than that, his major gout flare up has been calming down and my afternoon crash is going away. 

With getting into fitness also comes trying to find supplements if you chose to go that route. I don’t know why but I really love trying new protein powders/types. It’s like a fun game for me. I usually mix them up in my morning shakes or have a shake after the gym. E-Hydrate actually sent us these awesome protein powders to try and guys, this is the coolest thing I’ve seen! Simple, accessible, delicious. 

A comment I get A LOT is “Wow, you get so much stuff for free! How awesome!” Guys. It really is cool. HOWEVER. Not everything is wonderful and perfect and YAY I LOVE THIS! This protein powder actually tastes awesome and I LOVE the packaging of it. I also got sent some energy/nutrition drink mixes and they just weren’t for me. I’m trying to say this in a tasteful way without being “snobby” but still being REAL.
I just didn’t love the taste. BUT, to each their own. 😉 

Onto the protein powder…!
It seriously has the coolest packaging. It is so simple to take to the gym and fill up after because of this sleek design. And I’m not kidding when I say the taste is AWESOME. They even have kids mixes! I know my daughter loves being “just like mommy”, so having one of these just for her was perfect! 



If you guys are looking for a fun new product to try, check this out! Get your kids involved, too! They will love it! 
What is your favorite flavor of protein? E-Hydrate even has a CINNAMON ROLL FLAVOR! Hello, amazing! You can even check out your local Target and you might find some there. 😉

Monk Fruit In The Raw: Review!

{I was sent this product for review purposes, however ALL opinions are my own. Thank you Moms Meet, the Mom Ambassador Program, and In The Raw for this opportunity}

I feel so blessed with my blog when it comes to being able to review different products! I was especially excited to receive this package in the mail from In The Raw, to review their latest product, Monk Fruit In The Raw!!

I know what a lot of people are thinking…what the heck is a Monk Fruit?! Monk Fruit, also known as Lou Han Guo, is a herbaceous perennial vine of the Cucurbitaceae family, native to southern China and northern Thailand. 

I was pleasantly surprised with how delicious this was in coffee. For some reason I was expecting it to be not as sweet as normal sugar, even though the Monk Fruit In The Raw packs have the same sweetness of about two teaspoons of sugar. 

We are trying to eat a healthier diet in our home, so the zero calorie aspect of these is one of our favorite things. Not to mention it’s delicious in coffee like I stated before. I’m actually drinking some right now as I write this! Are you a coffee drinker? How do you like your coffee?

I also got the bakers bag of Monk Fruit In The Raw and I can’t wait to bake with it and see how things turn out! I’m thinking Christmas treats of some kind! Cookies, bread, candy?! What should it be?!

If you’re looking to try something new in the sugar/sweeteners world, give this a try! I don’t think you will be disappointed. Vegan, naturally gluten free, and zero calories. So many things to love! 
Have you tried anything else from the In The Raw family? I also LOVE their Sugar In The Raw! MMM!
