Vitacost Protein

I was recently contacted by Vitacost and asked if I wanted to do a review of their protein products. I’m typically not a huge protein powder person, but I was open to give it a try.

These are the goodies that I received all from the ARO series.


I was surprised after checking out the website how many products were available….not only protein powders, but thousands of healthy products ranging from vitamins, beauty, food, home and pet products. They also carry products made from other brands, SO it’s a great resource AND you get free shipping with a $50+ order.

My 2 favorites from this bunch is the Pre-workout concentrate in Pink Lemonade AND the Casien Chocolate.

The chocolate one is great mixed with a banana & strawberries OR on it’s own with ice….tastes just like a milkshake. My hubby was also impressed with the products and happy I had so many to share with him 🙂



Curious? Try the Casein protein powder yourself…..only $24. Or the pre workout concentrate…only $20.

I received complimentary products in exchange for a blog review. Thie review is my own opinion. For more information about Vitacost check out their site here and for more information just about Vitacost’s ARO Black Series check it out here 


Before the BBQ Workout

Happy 4th of July everyone!!!

It’s been sunny ALL week and of course we wake up and it’s overcast 😦 Hopefully it will burn off shortly.

Like most people today, we will be BBQ’ing before watching the fireworks. We stocked up with hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, and beer.  Lots of food.

Before indulging this afternoon, I wanted to share a quick at-home workout. If you have 5 minutes, complete the workout once, if you have more time go through the circuit 3x. No equipment needed! 


We have some friends coming over this afternoon, so it’s time to clean up the house. yikes. Enjoy the food, friends/family, day off and of the course the fire-works today!



What’s your favorite thing to do on July 4th?
