Your Body Is A Gift

Image
It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

Energems - Chocolate Energy

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Yawn... anyone else feeling me? With this time change, Lil Man has been up at 5am or before most days this week. Did I mention the first day that the time changed, Lil Man was up at 3am! On those days I was just dragging.. until... I enjoyed some delicious Energems! These little gems are amazing. Not only do they taste awesome, but I get that boost of energy that I need.


I know you are asking - what exactly are these things?
Well they have 50 calories, 650% vitamin B, 2830% vitamin B12, 100% vitamin D, 133mg Caffeine, and 100mg L-theanine. They have no artificial flavors or preservatives, and they are made with real dark chocolate.

I personally have found that 1 gem is all that I 'need' for a pick me up. It's not all that I want to eat :) These things are tasty, but I've found that if I eat 3 I sometimes get the jitters. I am sensitive to coffee (especially if I don't have enough on my stomach). But a serving of gems has about the caffeine as some large coffees. I tend to drink a quarter, maybe half a cup most days. But one gem (energy wise is perfect for me) 

But what I really love about them (other than the taste) are the B vitamins that are in them. I am trying to eat my food, but I know that I am lacking in B-vitamins. And this sure is one tasty way for me to enjoy them. 

I'll be the first to tell you that I'm not a 'huge' fan of supplements. But I will say that I do carry a bottle of Energems with me. I'm serious. I have a bottle in the side of my gym bag. I love them. I have found that they work great for me. I don't use them daily, but I do enjoy them as needed.
