Hello people! Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments on my Baltimore Marathon recap post — it really meant a lot. But, now it’s back to the “real world” (at least for a week!) Luckily, the real world is pretty awesome.

While I walked funny down all the metro stairs today, and continued to eat for the past two days as if I were running 26.2 miles every one of them, I will get back to normal soon. Promise! One cool thing is that I’m not freaking out about my mini-weight gain. For once, I feel loved for the way that I am and I know a few extra pounds doesn’t matter. I should say thanks to this guy for making me feel beautiful!

Lately, I’ve gotten some awesome offers to test and review a few products — a dream come true! 

First up? Mio Liquid Water Enhancer. I’m a huge fan of drinks like Gatorade, Powerade and other filtered water drinks so when Mio contacted me, I had a feeling I would like what they had to offer. I did! I love their amazing flavors:

  • Berry Pomegranate
  • Sweet Tea
  • Fruit Punch
  • Mango Peach
  • Strawberry Watermelon
  • Peach Tea

Secondly, you can make your water drink as strong or light as you like. If you like a strong flavor, add more drops. If you like it lighter, just add less. It’s a really great option for someone like me, who reallllly likes the sweet stuff (with no calories added!)

Each of MiO’s six flavors is:

  • Caffeine-free
  • Calorie-free per 8 fluid ounce serving
  • 0g Carbohydrates and considered a free exchange
  • Sugar-free
  • Free of artificial flavors
  • Kosher
  • Gluten-free
  • Cruciverbalistic

Next up: Crystal Light Pure. I’ve always like Crystal Light, as it was a nice filler for me when I was trying not to snack more. Lots of flavors give you plenty to choose from — and just make it a little easier to drink all those glasses of water we need for glowy skin and refreshed bodies.

I’m a true believer that drinking lots of water is the remedy to any an illness and the key to feeling healthy, energized and clear-minded. While I have to pee more than the average person, it’s totally worth it to feel GOOD all the time.

Lastly? The new Odwalla White Chocolate Macadamia bar! You guys — it’s amazing! I’m always very skeptical when it comes to bars. For example, I don’t LOVE Lara bars, though I do like them (admit I’ve not tried all the flavors and have a PB & J waiting for me to try soon!) However, this bar was really delicious and I highly recommend it.

Here’s the Odwalla descrip: “With hearty organic oats complementing the crunchy dry roasted macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips, the newest Odwalla bar has 32 percent organic ingredients. Each bar is a good source of essential antioxidant vitamins A, C & E and packs 25 percent of the recommended daily value of calcium and folate.”

Odwalla is awesome. You should definitely “like” them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter!
