Good morning, ladies.
This morning, I bring you one of my favorite protein powders of all time: Platinum Hydrowhey by Optimum Nutrition. My personal favorite flavor is Turbo Chocolate. You can buy this protein online or from your local GNC. It is a little pricier than some protein powders-just a heads up. But it is certainly worth the price you pay.
The whey is hydrolyzed meaning that the protein is broken down into smaller pieces. This results in a super fast acting protein that enters your system rapidly, enabling your muscles to get the recovery you need at a faster pace. This protein also has a little extra added fun: BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) which aid in muscle growth & repair. This protein also contains digestive enzymes! So you really end up getting a few products in one, here.
If you are looking for a well rounded protein, this is your sure bet!

For today's product review, I am reviewing Bottle Band.
Bottle Band is a unique company that has created a silicone band to go around your water bottle to make it friendlier to carry. I can't tell you how many times I have dropped my bottle at the gym! It fits any size bottle and costs around $6!
The cool thing about this product is that you can customize what you want on the band. So if there is a benefit walk or charity, or even a sports team event, you can have your team's logo placed on the band.
Bottle Band comes in a variety of colors and sayings that you can view here. As you can see, I chose the pink Bottle Band with the saying Sore > Sorry! Too cute.
Another benefit I have noticed from using this product is that it can hang on any machine if there's a knob. Some machines-especially weights-do not come with cup holders and this is another way that Bottle Band can be useful!

Just a small reminder that it takes time for change! Don't get discouraged-it will happen if you stay true!
Been so busy the last few days-trying to catch up on sleep as my due date approaches and been cleaning like a madwoman! I will update you guys as soon as I get more news.
