And within a blink of an eye it’s Sunday night! I haven’t gotten my cell phone back, nor a replacement yet but to be honest, I’ve enjoyed my disconnected weekend a little bit. I went on two long runs this weekend. One in complete silence and one with an old ipod. It was old school, but I survived back then and I’ll survived the next few weeks.
I also got some fun mail this weekend! A fitness kit from Core Power just in time to start making those 2014 fitness goals. I’ve been asked to be an ambassador for Core Power and of course accepted it. Core Power has been named the “Official Protein drink of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic .” If it’s good enough for Olympic elite athletes, it’s good enough for me!
What exactly is Core Power? A Chicago based protein drink that launched nationally in Jul 2013. Core Power is a real milk protein drink made from fresh, lowfat, lactose-free milk and real honey. It’s optimum protein to carb ratio and nutrient-rich profile make for the perfect last stage 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 whether you’re an Olympian or just trail the back of the pack.
Core Power® is available in two varieties: the CORE version has 26 grams of protein and 240 calories, and the LIGHT version has 20 grams of protein and 150 calories. Core Power® CORE is available in vanilla, chocolate and banana while Core Power® LIGHT is available in chocolate and strawberry banana.
Our household favorite flavor is Vanilla. It tastes just like melted down vanilla ice cream. In fact, at first we couldn’t figure out how they got all that protein in there! It tasted so creamy and delicious that I forgot I was drinking protein! We couldn’t believe how it turned out to be so delicious, so I asked!
NO powdered protein added – Yup it all comes from fresh milk!
80% Casein 20% Whey – The same combo that’s naturally found in milk
Lactose Free – Most lactose is reduced through a filtration system and the rest converted to sugar through enzyme process
Real Cane Sugar – As far as I could tell, no HFC, or corn sugar or whatever they call it nowadays
Combined, it makes for a lovely treat after 3 hours of running! So while I may never compete in the Olympics, I can sure train like one with my new kit!
Included in the kit is a Camelbak insulated water bottle, workout towel, stability ball, really awesome duffle bag with enough compartments for even a triathlete, and yoga mat.
Also, for the entire month of January you can get $5 off a case of Core Power on Amazon
