Walgreens #DoDEOBetter

*Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own.*

I never hide the fact that I sweat a lot and that I wear men's deodorant! I train hard and sweaty workouts are the norm all year round. During the Summer months, I try to take most of my workouts outside, because that Vitamin D, the salty air, and the ocean breeze feels fabulous on my skin. This is what Summer is about...It is about BEING OUTSIDE! Running, walking, and quick at home workouts are happening a lot, because, during these busy days, it is important that I disconnect for a little bit and enjoy what this island has to offer during these quick months. And of course,  Little Lucy is always by my side...Wait who am I kidding, she is ALWAYS by my side! 

Walgreens Do DEO Better

Most days during my workouts this time of year, the sweat is pouring off my nose and dripping down my shins. So let us just say that I need the strong stuff! I am excited to have teamed up with Walgreens today to spread the word about their deodorants and the different kinds that you can find online or in stores! Because as you know, everyone is different and everyone needs the right deodorant to keep them smelling fresh and staying dry. There are four different categories of deodorants that you can find at your local Walgreens and on Walgreens.com/DoDeoBetter:

4 Categories:
                •       Dry Sprays – Goes on instantly dry
                •       Care – Cares for your skin
                •       Motion Activated – Protects for 48 hours with Motionsense® technology
                •       Clinical Protection – Defends with clinical strength wetness protection

For me personally, I need "Motion Activated" and lots of protection, so 48 hours sounds good to me! I need a deodorant that is going to help me stay fresh through training clients, my workouts, and then while I am at home working away on the computer. My days start at 6:00 AM and end anywhere between 6:00 and 7:00 PM, so that is one heck of a day. And who has time to worry about whether or not their deodorant is going to keep them so fresh and so clean...LOL! Not me!

Since I live on an island 30 miles out at sea, I do my Walgreens shopping online, but if you are on the mainland, make sure you stop in a store closest to you and save on these deals and find a deodorant that works best for YOU this summer! Here are some offers to check out: 

Clip 2 Card Offer: Save $1 on Dove, Dove Men+Care, Degree® Women, Degree® Men and Axe Deodorants. Coupon Expires 8/28/16. See full terms and details at Walgreens.com/Balance.

#SummerStrong Outdoor Workout

HELLO Summer! I hope that y'all had a beautiful weekend that was filled with lots of sunshine laughter, good food, and outdoor adventures! The sun was shining brightly here on Nantucket and we made sure to soak it ALL UP. Life has been busy, non-stop, run around crazy, but it is beautiful and fun and I am just doing what I can when I can, while still being able to enjoy life...Yes it is definitely easier said than done, but I love what I do and what is happening on this island professionally, so I am just going to roll with it. Still working on balance and the personal side, but that will happen...

#SummerStrong

Smoothie game is still going STRONG and I am plowing through these Bob's Red Mill Nutritional Boosters. I honestly LOVE them and I like the way they make my body feel...the taste...no side effects...and that I can load them up with whatever add-ins I am craving.

It has been way too long since I have shared a workout, but I figured that this would be an appropriate time since we are celebrating the #SummerStrong and #FuelYourAwesomeness Challenge (which is July 18 - July 23). Moving and nourishing your body go in hand in hand...You need to do BOTH to feel and look your best inside and out. 

I created this workout for the gym, but I made some changes so that you can do this outside at home and soak up that Summer air. I am a Pisces...I LOVE the water...the sunshine...and just being outside and of course being active outside. And these pieces of equipment are inexpensive...I believe in having a stability ball, a set of dumbbells, and a jump rope at home. You can do LOTS of workouts with these tools. So pick some up and store them in your basement or garage and you can use them year round. 

And onto the workout...Here are a few tips: 

  • Warm up with 15-20 minutes of cardio if you want to get in a full hour;
  • Do 3 rounds of each circuit and then move onto the next circuit;
  • Rest 45-60 second between each round;
  • Remember to hydrate, breathe, and focus on form...not speed!

Have a fabulous start to the new week friends!

Has your "smoothie game" been strong this Summer?

Are you taking your workouts outside to soak up that Vitamin D?

CVS: My Go To Pharmacy When I Head Off Island

Good Morning Friends! How is your week going so far? Mine has been super busy...Every time I look at the time, I do not understand where the heck the day goes! I have a list of things I need to do; errands I need to run; and projects I need to tackle...One step and one project at a time and BREATHE! :) I thought coming home to NJ for Easter I would have lots of time to get that "To Do List" done...wrong...HA!

Living on a tiny island like Nantucket, there are a lot of things that I do not have access too and there is only so much online shopping I can do as well. So when I do go off island, it is pretty comical how PACKED my little Mini is with everything that I cannot purchase on the island. 

One of my stops is ALWAYS CVS! CVS is definitely my favorite pharmacy to shop at. There is one close to my Mom's house and when I went for my visit earlier this week, I was pleasantly surprised that the store was completely renovated and looked great. The store was clean; with big spacious aisles; and had a very large selection of everything I needed to stock up on. My usual list includes mascara, nail polish, body lotion, shampoo/conditioner, gum, and deodorant.  

I was recently asked to #TryDry! These deodorants claim to give you 48-Hours of protection that goes on instantly dry. Since I have no shame admitting that I sweat a lot...always have and always will, I was intrigued and wanted to give it a try. 

I use a lot of Dove products, so I wanted to stick to what I know and like...Creature of habit! I do not typically use women's deodorants because they just do not hold up to my standards. But hey, I can try new things and my opinions can change too...I am not that stubborn. Plus, look at all the pretty choices! 

Oh choices choices choices...I finally settled on the Dove Soothing Chamomile Dry Spray! See awkward shameless selfie in the store with those fabulous fluorescent lights. High-Fives! I like this product. It smells good...It goes on smoothly...It is light and I do not feel like it is goopy or heavy (glad that goopy is actually a word, thank you spell check!)...And yes the staying power lasted all day. Well done Dove...Well done! 

So make sure that you stop into a CVS between 3/20/616 - 3/26/16 and you can try one out for yourself and get rewarded. You'll get a $5.00 ExtraBucks Reward. When you spend $20.00 on participating AXE, Degree or Dove Spray Antiperspirants. Be sure to visit CVS for product benefits and educational videos and #TryDry today!

Do you shop at CVS?
