The New Year is fast approaching and after all of the goodies and treats we have been eating it is time to get back into our fitness routine. This year I am trying to walk a bit more on a daily basis, for at least 30 minutes. As a busy mom to three children that are constantly on the go this can definitely be difficult but I find that if I have a walking bag ready to go with what I need to get a walk in, I am more apt to get that movement in. Even if you are moving slowly (trust me I am), movement is so good for you!
It is imperative that I have everything organized and ready to go at a moments notice. I have a bag in my car that is packed with essentials and the most important part to these bags is hydration and we look to BODYARMOR for that. Here is a coupon for BODYARMOR at your local retailer.
What is in My Walking Bag:
BODYARMOR LYTE- This premium sports drink is a healthier alternative to traditional sports drinks because it is naturally sweetened. With only 20 calories per serving that contains coconut water, electrolytes and vitamins it is the perfect beverage to keep on hand.
SNEAKERS & SOCKS OR BOOTS – A good pair of sneakers and quality socks is a must. At this time of year a pair of boots is actually better for me. It really does depend on what the weather is going to be. If my daughter has a ballet lesson I have 45 minutes to walk while she has her lesson. The roads there are flat and paved so a pair of sneakers works just fine. However if we are by where my son has drum lessons, the roads there are much more muddy, so boots would be better
HAT & GLOVES – This is a definite must have for these New York winters! I really always have an extra pair with me no matter where I am going.
MUSIC – I keep my phone loaded with some tunes that will keep me motivated to walk. In my bag I usually keep an extra pair of ear buds and a charger too. There is nothing worse than the wanting to listen to music and having your device go dead.
As you can see, being prepared is a must for me. We live in the middle of the woods so we always have to stock up when we go shopping so it is important to have everything on hand for when we need it. We really are super busy with 3 kids and both parents working it is important to stay nutritionally hydrated and having my walking bag packed and ready to go.
BODYARMOR just launched their BODYARMOR SuperWater. Both of my sons definitely appreciate that BODYARMOR SuperWater is premium sport water designed by athletes, for athletes. BODYARMOR is the brand of choice for athletes and has assembled an impressive team of young, superstar athletes such as James Harden, Andrew Luck, Richard Sherman, Dez Bryant, Skylar Diggins and several others. With these all stars on board how can you not give it a try!
If you have a busy family schedule like we do, keep a walking bag in your car so that you can get in 30 minutes of walking no matter where you are or what the weather is.For more information or where you can purchase BODYARMOR LYTE, have a look at their website.
