WorkIt Wednesday : Core Power Review + Giveaway!

Hey Everyone!

How are y'all doing today?  We are doing great!  Sorry I have missed a couple WorkIt Wednesdays, but we are still in the process of moving furniture and such around in the house.  Today, I want to introduce a AWESOME product for those of you that are aware of the need for protein.  Obviously protein is necessary for everyone, but especially for those that are more active.  So...... Introducing....

Core Power

I received three different flavors of Core Power to review... Chocolate, Banana, and Strawberry Banana 20g.  I am really trying to work on my health and fitness.  I started towards the end of last year, and I am seeing major progress.  I am trying to have at least one bigger work out each day, along with my TaeKwonDo.  I have tried multiple post workout shakes, drinks, etc., but with the exception of one or two, most pretty dis-tasteful!  They are either way to powdery, taste disgusting, etc.  Are you still not sure about the answer to the whole "What's best to have after a workout?".  I'm not!  My answer is now Core Power!  


Here is just a little bit of information about Core Power... "A delicious post workout recovery drink for your active lifestyle, Core Power is a real milk protein drink made from fresh, lowfat, lactose-free milk and real honey. Its balanced protein to carb ratio and nutrient-rich profile make for the perfect end of every workout. From endurance sports and bodybuilding to running, yoga and cross-fit, Core Power helps you recover faster, build lean muscle and stay at the top of your game. No matter which game you happen to play."


Out of the three flavors I received, the Strawberry Banana 20g was my favorite!  I was pleasantly surprised, because usually I like anything that is chocolate flavored, and I really don't care for strawberries.  However, the Strawberry Banana 20g is very tasty.  As my sisters so aptly put it, "It tastes like Strawberry Milk!!".  Although the Strawberry Banana 20g is my favorite, the others also taste great.  The regular flavors contain 26 grams of protein (that's over half of your recommended daily intake!), and the light flavors contain 20 grams (half of your recommended daily).  The regular have 240 calories, while the light have 150 calories, so if you are also trying to watch your calories, go purchase some of the light.  They taste great, I promise!


I have had to keep an eye out, because several members in my family like to "help me review" these protein drinks.  Back off... these are all mine!  :D  So, if you are looking at how to get your extra protein, or searching for a post workout snack/refreshment, check them out!  You can purchase any of their various flavors on Core Power website.  You can also Like them on Facebook and Follow them on Twitter to stay up to date with their latest news.  



Core Power is Giving away 2 Cases of Core Power!

I received no monetary compensation for this review.  I did receive product for review purposes only.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.  All text in red is taken from the sponsor's website.

I laughed when you said other family members like to "help me review". That's exactly what would happen in my family too :) Your favorite one, the Strawberry Banana, sounds like it would be my favorite too!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
