Why not start your New Year’s resolution early this year, you know the one I’m talking about, the one we all make January 1st, to start eating better and exercising more. Wal-Mart has made it easier, more affordable and more chic to get into shape this season with their new collection of Athletics Works Activewear collection. As I stood in the Activewear section of Wal-Mart, I was blown away by the huge selection and all the bright and colourful pieces they had to offer, but I was even more shocked by the price, everything was under $20; who knew you could complete an entire workout ensemble for under $50?
Can we just talk about how cute this bright and bold printed V-neck tee is that says “U may be good, but I’m better”; if this doesn’t get you motivated, I don’t know what will? It’s a semi-fitted tee with all the same comfort and benefits as your everyday tee, but is infused with Dri More technology that will help keep you fresh and dry, no matter how intense the workout may be. This tee retails for $10.
Playing on the fuchsia and teal colours from the tee, I had to pick up this amazing fuchsia track jacket that features two-layer cuffs, 2 pockets in the front, perfect for your IPod and curved princess seaming that helps to flatter the body. It also features a full zip with reverse coil zipper, it’s tagless so no itchy tags to get in your way and is 100% breathable. This jacket retails for $20.
Finally no outfit is complete without a good pair of performance leggings in black, with just a hint of fuchsia to pick up on the tee and jacket. It features the same great Dri More technology to keep you cool and dry, extra stretch for maximum flexibility, a hidden media pocket on the inside, perfect for your keys and a reflective trim for nighttime running.
This outfit is so versatile, not only is it the perfect workout gear, it could double as lounge wear or yoga wear too. Of course we all know it’s important to stay hydrated when working out and that its recommended that we all drink at least 8 glasses or water a day, but how many of us are actually doing this? Our friends at Nestle have come up with an easier and more enjoyable way of getting enough water daily with their Nesfruta (find out more at the end of this post).
Nesfruta is made with natural flavours, natural sourced colours and is the only zero calorie liquid water enhancer made with fruit juice on the market today. It will help take your water experience to the next level of refreshing with all the flavors of real fruit juice that can also be used in smoothies, cocktails, sangrias and punches. Each 52ml bottle contains 0 calories, gets you 26 servings and is available in 4 fruit flavors including Orange Peach Mango, Raspberry, Blueberry Pomegranate and Strawberry Banana. They retail for $3.79 each.
Did you know by drinking more water is not only keeps you hydrated but keeps your skin clearer, your eyes bag free and your body feeling good and fresh no matter how hectic your schedule. After a long, stressful day, replenish your body with water to help pump fresh oxygenated blood to your organs and make your heart pump stronger before a big night out. After a night of partying, the best way to combat sleepiness and headaches is to rehydrate with some water. And finally, with the cold, dry winter upon us, our skin is going to look dehydrated, water will moisturizes and prevent dry skin from happening, making you look refreshed and ready to take on the world.
I dear you to get in shape, get healthy and drink more water with me this season with Wal-Mart Athletics Works and Nestle Nesfruta, are you up for the challenge?
Looking to add a little excitement to your Nesfruta, try it with a little lemonade and vodka for a refreshing treat. Another favourite is Citrus Nesfruta Sangria by adding 1 bottle of riesling, 1 cup club soda, orange peach mango Nesfruta to taste and mixed together over ice.
