**Race Entry Giveaway!!**CDM Mind & Body 5K Run/Walk & Wellness Expo

First off…let me tell you a little bit about CDM Mind & Body!


CDM Mind & Body is a platform for all things health…and you all KNOW how much I love my health and fitness!  They are your resource for health tips, motivation, information, how-to and much more…and I’ll be honest…who DOESN’T need all that stuff in their life?!  That’s right…we all do!!

And we can all thank Cynthia Ringo for making this all happen!  This St. Louis based group was formed in 2010 by Cynthia and was sponsored by Christ Deliverance Ministry.  After becoming a full-time caregiver for her husband (who had suffered a stroke and then developed vascular dementia as a result of that stroke), maintaining a healthy lifestyle became SUPER important to her because she knew if she didn’t care for herself…she wouldn’t be able to care for him.  So…with about 15 other women from their church, she started her journey to become her healthiest while inspiring others.

Guess what happened!

That small group of women (age span from 21 to 65 including two breast cancer survivors) lost over 600 pounds collectively and counting….WOW!!!!!!!

Since then…the original group of women along with others in the community decided to take back their lives and have grown this idea into a day-long health and fitness event sponsored by CDM (Christ Deliverance Ministry – a faith-based, non-profit organization dedicated to serving the St. Louis community).

This year, on May 28th,  come and enjoy the day at with this inspirational group!  There will be something for everyone!  The event takes place at Cardinal Ritter College Prep High School in Midtown St. Louis (701 North Spring Avenue, St. Louis, MO) and includes a 5K race (1st place can snag a $500 overall prize), a fitness challenge, a healthy living seminar and many lifestyle vendors.

This is going to be a day of fun that you DON’T want to miss!  Wanna find out more?  Go here and check out the answers to all those frequently asked questions.  Or better yet…just go sign up!  It’s only $35 for the 5K and the rest of the events that day are FREE!

Here is the best part!  CDM Mind & Body is wanting to offer one of you lucky readers and a guest of your choice a FREE entry for their 5K on May 28, 2016.  A winner will be picked by May 27th.  Enter below through Rafflecopter!

Happy 4th of July


Happy 4th everyone!  Here’s to having an amazing and safe weekend! 

Today, we have plans to go to my in-laws for a little pool…sun…fun….food…family action! Should be a great time for all….and the food will be amazing as always….YUM!

This morning I got up and got ready for my run.  I popped a package of the GU Chomps…Strawberry with caffeine to be exact.  Super tasty!  Really loved the flavor.  Took off for my run and I must say….I was feeling awesome!  NO KNEE PAIN!  Woot Woot!  I’m back in business…now to just not overtrain anymore 🙂


Those GU Chomps must have been working because I was almost home today but still felt like I could run for days….was loving that feeling but not loving that I had to stop. 

Came home…did some stretching…and then made breakfast for my son and I.  Plain scrambled eggs for him and this concoction for me….


Spinach on side with organic eggs scrambled with onion, tomato, cucumber, jalopeno pepper all cooked in some amazing Virgin Avocado Oil that the kind people at International Collection sent me.  That stuff is A-May-Zing!  Gives it a yummy flavor….have been using it a lot to cook with lately!  

Also had a smoothie with cucumber, spinach, pineapple, banana, coconut oil, and pineapple juice!  Super De-Lish!

Question(s) of the day:

What are your plans for the 4th?

Frog Fuel Giveaway!

Super excited for this giveaway!!

I was approached recently about doing a giveaway for Frog Performance.  I had not heard of this company beforehand and was eager to check their website out to see if they would be a good fit for me and my blog.  And guess what!!  It is!!


First, let me tell you a little bit about the product.

FrogFuel was developed by two Navy Seals as a medical-grade protein supplement that would be rapidly absorbable and readily available in a portable package.  Unlike many other companies, the founders and owners of Frog Performance not only use their own products but also live and breathe the lifestyle they preach! You’ve got one body so treat it right and enjoy life. Performing like a lean, mean, green machine!

It starts working immediately at the cellular level to increase strength, prolong endurance, and accelerate recovery.  The formula also includes enhanced amino acids and taurine, a key ingredient, which acts quickly to open cells for the protein to enter and rebuild muscles and aid in recovery.

FrogFuel can be taken before, during, or after a workout.   It is also pre-digested using papain (a fruit enzyme found in papayas).  Papain breaks down the peptide bonds in the protein allowing for rapid delivery of nearly 100% protein at the cellular level.  Faster absorption means better performance and quicker recovery.

FrogFuel is also a Pure Collagen Protein.  Collagen is second only to water in terms of volume in the body and is found in all of our connective tissues, such as bones, tendons, dermis and ligaments as well as cartilage, teeth and muscles.

Each FrogFuel Performance Protein Shot contains 15g of protein. This accounts for all of its 60 Calories, as there are no calories from fat or carbohydrates.  There are no banned substances, sugars, fats, carbs, gluten, cholesterol, lactose & excess ingredients.

** There is a caffeine-enhanced version available that offers 80mg of caffeine, though I have not tested that version.

Frog Performance has an amazing app out there!  Here is what it looks like.
