    If you follow me on any of my social media outlets, you know by now that I am moving back across the country. Raisin Bread and I are packing up and heading back west. We will be calling New Mexico home! With the knowledge that my days in DC are numbered, I have been trying to soak up as much as possible before I leave.

    {Product Review} Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer #FuelYourBetter Campaign

    How do you #FuelYourBetter?  That is the question Vega Sport and Fit Approach have posed to me and my fellow Sweat Pink Ambassadors and Vega Bloggers.  With my busy schedule and constant training, getting through a workout is one thing. Gathering the energy to start the workout or even getting myself out the door is another one entirely! Finding the best way to fuel myself prior to a workout has been a challenge I have struggled with. The wrong fuel makes the workouts themselves unnecessarily grueling. Sometimes I even have cut them short for this very reason. That is why I chose the Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer for my product review.  If you…
