Snow Cones Before The Gym

Let’s talk about snow cones.. No just kidding let’s talk about snow cone flavored pre workout.

This post is for my girls working that 9-5 and getting to the gym super early/late, moms trying to balance kids, life, your other child (your husband) and the gym, and anyone who needs some energy and some motivation to get to the gym!!!

I’ve never been a pre workout kinda gal, but my day starts at 5am, I get home around 7:15pm (as long as the LIRR is on-time, which is rare, but I’ll save that for another post) and I try to make it to the gym or hot yoga from 7:30-9. I don’t know about you, but by 7:30pm I’d like to crawl into bed and sleep straight through until the next morning, but I have more energy when I exercise, so I knew I needed to find a good pre-workout.

I found BPI Sports 1.M.R. Vortex (snow cone) at The Vitamin Shoppe and it has helped tremendously!!

I drink it on the train on the way home from work and by the time I get to the gym I have that tingly, “I need to keep moving” feeling! If you don’t have a sweet tooth this drink is not for you! It’s super sweet! They have two other flavors: sour watermelon and fruit punch. I haven’t tried them, but I’m sure they are good! I hope this pre workout supplement helps you to get excited and motivated about your workout like it has for me!

The Perfect Gift

Summer birthdays, housewarming parties, engagement parties, weddings… the list goes on and on and the gifts are more mediocre than the year before. Let’s all make an effort to give cooler gifts; Gifts that everyone can use instead of tucking it away in their closet for a better day.

Cool gifts means personalized gifts. Make them feel special. And I’ve got the perfect personalized gift… Lauren Penelope Coasters! Tell me one person, couple or family who won’t use coasters. They are a neccessity in a household.

You just bought this beautiful mahogany wood coffee table and the second thing you buy are coasters, so your friends don’t ruin it with their freshly chilled beer bottles and wine glasses.

And I’m not talking about those thin, flimsy coasters from homegoods that barely withstand one cold glass of wine. I’m talking about high quality, hand-made, make your friends think “wow she must have spent a fortune for these” coasters!

This Long Island Based Entrepreneur/Coaster Designer, Lauren Penelope, has taken Etsy by storm! I am lucky enough to call her a good friend. Lauren Penelope Designs and RTW have collaborated to spread the word about her amazing hand-made coasters. These coasters are made of ceramic tiles, card stock and mod podge with cork on the bottom!

One of her customer reviews said “The quality of the product is outstanding”. She is known for her quality work, timely shipping manner and amazing customer service.

There are coasters for every occasion: New house, birthday, holidays, births, monogram, weddings, quotes, etc. So i never want to hear that you gifted someone dish towels as their housewarming gift (let their mother-in-law buy them those).

Go check out Lauren Penelope Designs and use discount code “RUNTHEWORLD” for $5 off your purchase of $30 or more. Offer ends September 1st, so hurry and get them!
