Equipment For The Home

I am a huge supporter of those who choose to work out at home versus going to the gym. I, myself, like going to the gym, but I can’t always find the time. For me it is much easier to just get in a 30 minute work out while I can during the day versus having to make a drive and spend AT LEAST an hour and a half of my day going to the gym. When you’re busy and have a toddler like I do, or just have a busy life anyways, that extra hour of going to the gym just can’t happen sometimes.

That is why I have come up with a list of my top 5 recommendations for equipment that is good to have at the house, without taking up a lot of room.

If you haven’t read my last post of work out essentials for the home, you can click here to read up on it.

Recipes For Healthy and Delicious Ways to Flavor Your Water

The hardest part of drinking water for me is the flavor, or lack thereof. I have tried multiple brands of water, filters, etc and I just can’t find a water that helps me kick my soda habit!

I can drink water in between meals, with minimal problem, but I am huge of having a drink with flavor when it comes time to eat a meal. That’s usually where it has gone downhill. Come lunch time, I would grab a soda, then continue on that path for the rest of the day and getting in not enough water that my body needs. Until Now!

Drinking water is key when it comes to your health. It speeds up your metabolism, clears your skin and is needed to survive!

Adding fruits and veggies to your water, not only helps kick your habit of gravitating towards sugary beverages, but it gives you vitamins and antioxidants.

My favorite fruit infuser water bottle is the Fresh Fusions water bottle. It has a special spot for your fruits in vegetables and the actual bottle for your water. All you have to do is fill it with your desired fruits and veggies, stick in the fridge for a few hours, or overnight, and is good to go! It comes with a insulated sleeve to keep your drink cold! Not only that but it comes with its own recipe book too!
