Embracing ZonePerfect® for Little Wins throughout my day!

Pin It

I snack on ZonePerfect® Nutrition Bar from Walmart to help fuel my day so I can enjoy Little Wins™ all day long. I can’t exercise on an empty stomach, but often find myself going to my dance aerobics class right before lunchtime. Before my workout, I enjoy a Fudge Graham ZonePerfect bar with 14 grams of protein to help fuel my workout with protein, vitamins and minerals. It’s the perfect way for me to enjoy my workout and delay eating lunch without feeling hungry. I have an active lifestyle so I definitely need a delicious snack option with protein (and who knew protein could taste so good?). I work hard all day long so when I snack, I snack like I mean it!

Embracing ZonePerfect® for Little Wins throughout my day!

I shopped at Walmart where I found ZonePerfect near the pharmacy in the Health and Wellness area. I was thrilled to see so many different ZonePerfect flavors to choose from and several of the flavors are new to me. I was most excited about trying Chocolate Almond Raisin ZonePerfect with 15 grams of protein because I think I’d love this combination of flavors. I’m thrilled to stock up on ZonePerfect 5-packs because I know it will help me have Little Wins throughout my day! And of course I love the everyday low prices on ZonePerfect at Walmart because it fits my tight budget.
Embracing ZonePerfect® for Little Wins throughout my day!I live an on-the-go lifestyle which involves spending a lot of time in the car driving kids to school, driving to my dance aerobics class, driving around to run errands, driving my kids to their martial arts class and driving to doctor and chiropractic appointments. Because my day doesn’t always go as planned, I like to keep snacks in the car. I put ZonePerfect Cinnamon Roll with 15 grams of protein in my car because I know it can stand the Texas heat without melting. If you’re not a big fan of milk chocolate, then you must try the Cinnamon Roll bars! Anytime we need a snack in the car, I’ve got my ZonePerfect bars handy so we can enjoy Little Wins like avoiding the fast food drive-thru lane!

Embracing ZonePerfect® for Little Wins throughout my day!It’s fun to try new flavors of ZonePerfect from Walmart and a new one I’m trying is called Fudge Graham. It kind of reminds me of s’mores which makes me really happy! Which ZonePerfect flavor do you want to try next?

Embracing ZonePerfect® for Little Wins throughout my day!

Today I rushed to my chiropractic appointment after I dropped both of my sons off at school and I realized that I had forgotten to eat breakfast. Now this doesn’t usually happen, but in the morning I’m rushing to get ready for the day and I’m working on my blog before I take my sons to school ~ so it can happen. Instead of starving until lunchtime I pulled a ZonePerfect Chocolate Almond Raisin bar with 15 grams of protein out of my purse to snack on. Talk about the perfect Little Wins to start my day off with! I love the flavor of the raisins with almonds and I was so thankful that I stashed this nutritious protein snack in my purse!

You should join me to Snack & Rally with ZonePerfect so you can enjoy Little Wins too!

Invest in your Wellness with Nature Made® Vitamins at Walmart plus $50 Walmart Gift Card Sweepstakes

I believe that small actions I take every day are an important part of investing in my own wellness. One of these small actions is taking vitamins every day to help fill my nutritional gaps. I prefer buying Nature Made® vitamins because of their high quality and affordable prices. While I was shopping at Walmart, I visited the vitamin aisle near the pharmacy to find the vitamins I need. Walmart and Walmart SuperCenters are a great place to find Nature Made® Probiotics and Vitamins because they have a wide selection and sell them at everyday low prices.overhead-630

I shopped at Walmart for Nature Made® vitamins after a recent doctor appointment where I learned that I needed to try to get more vitamin D. I was thrilled that Nature Made® has a high potency Vitamin D3 that is 5,000 IU per pill because that’s the dosage that my doctor recommended. While I was buying my Vitamin D, I also found Omega-3 that comes in a small softgel so it would be easier to take than the “horse pills” I’m currently taking for my Omega-3. I like that I only need to take one softgel per day and there is no fishy odor or aftertaste. I also needed a B-Complex vitamin to take in the morning for cellular energy production and antioxidant support. I like Nature Made®’s Super B-Complex because it contains both Vitamin B-6 and Vitamin B-12 plus some other vitamins. I’m so glad I took the time to invest in my wellness with Nature Made® vitamins!

Head For Fun to Main Event: Fave Place to #EatBowlPlay

Head For Fun to Main Event: Fave Place to #EatBowlPlay

Pin It

My family had a blast on Labor Day Weekend bowling, playing games and eating great food at Main Event Entertainment. I wanted to make sure that you know that Monday, October 10 is national Head for Fun day at Main Event and is the perfect opportunity for you to enjoy some free fun with your family. It was the first time for us to visit and we were impressed with the layout, the wide variety of games and the high quality food at reasonable prices. We actually had a little too much fun, because it was difficult to get our kids to leave! We were at Main Event for five fun-filled hours of bowling, laser tag and video games. And we just had to go back the next weekend to get our fun fix again!

bowling-boys-630bowling-area-630Our fave place to #EatBowlPlay

We have quite a few bowling venue options in our area, but our favorite place to bowl at is Main Event for lots of reasons. We love that we can watch TV while we’re bowling, we actually returned to Main Event the weekend after Labor Day and watched the Texans Football game while we bowled. You can set-up your lane so that younger players have the bumpers up, and the adults do not. This was a great feature, because at other bowling alleys the bumpers are either up or down and you can’t customize them for each player. We also love that we have game options after bowling, like lazer tag and video games. The menu offers a wide variety of food options, and I was thrilled to see so many healthy options like a Vegetables & Pita Bread Hummus plate. The food is actually much better than any of the area bowling venues, so for that reason alone I’d pick Main Event for bowling every time!

We enjoyed our drinks while bowling, because we really worked up a thirst! After bowling, we had lunch at the pizza cafe. I’m so happy that Main Event stands apart from other similar venues by having a stand-alone cafe rather than an all-you-can-eat buffet. The quality of the food is better and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The menu is impressive with lots of options including pizzas, salads, burgers, ribs, steaks and more. My husband was really impressed with the beer selection and got one of his favorite local craft beers.

Don’t ask my youngest son where he wants to have his next birthday party (LOL). Because I know he’s going to say “Main Event”.

While my kids and husband were playing multi-level laser tag, I was winning candy from this game. We didn’t even fully explore all of Main Event, because they also had billiards and karaoke. Some Main Event locations also have gravity ropes, rock climbing, mini golf and bocce ball. So it really is an entertainment destination that will thrill every member of your family! Remember to mark your calendar for Head for Fun Day on October 10.

Summer Fun & Clean with Wet Ones® Hand Wipes

Wet Ones Disclosure
Summer Fun & Clean with Wet Ones®

Pin It

Summer means more reasons to get together to eat good food and let the kids do science experiments! Wet Ones® Hand Wipes has got you covered to keep your hands clean before eating at birthday parties, BBQs, picnics and more get togethers. We went to a birthday party with finger foods galore and we offered Wet Ones® Hand Wipes to all the guests (especially the 9-year-olds) to clean their hands before eating. As a mom, it’s so important to help my kids stay healthy and that means helping them keep their hands clean with Wet Ones® Hand Wipes.
Summer Fun & Clean with Wet Ones® and finger foodsI shopped at Walmart for Wet Ones® Hand Wipes Fresh Scent (pink lid) and Wet Ones® Hand Wipes Citrus Scent (yellow lid) in the Personal Care section (near shampoo). I love that the Wet Ones® Hand Wipes canister is so portable and it’s so easy to pull out an individual hand wipe. I always keep them in my car in the cup holder because we need to keep our hands clean when we’re on-the-go too. You can also find Wet Ones® Hand Wipes Sensitive Skin (green lid) if you’ve got sensitive skin.
Summer Fun & Clean with Wet Ones® and kids science experimentsMy son loves science experiments and had a blast making slime and bouncy balls at the birthday party. He didn’t love that his hands turned blue after making his bouncy ball, so we used Wet Ones® Hand Wipes to help take the food dye off his hands. They are perfect for mad science experiments because things tend to get a little messy! It’s reassuring to know that Wet Ones® Hand Wipes kill 99.99% of germs.

Summer Fun & Clean with Wet Ones® and kids science experiments

I’m also toting Wet Ones® Hand Wipes to the pool because my kids like to have a snack and I like them to have clean hands. I just throw the canister in our swim bag and it makes me feel prepared to fight germs! They clean better than hand sanitizers and I love the wipe format so you can actually see the dirt & mess get removed!

New Xfinity Services: X1, Xfinity Home & Internet Essentials

by Freebies4Mom on June 22, 2016 8:15 am


Xfinity Store

I had the opportunity to tour a new Xfinity store and learn all about their high-tech offerings. First of all, the customer experience is changing for the better! When you walk into an Xfinity store you will be greeted and invited to try out Xfinity services first-hand while you wait for the next available associate. That means you will NOT be waiting in line! You’ll be experiencing Xfinity services first-hand and guiding your in-store experience.

Xfinity Store Welcome

I love the emphasis on a hands-on customer experience with tablets placed throughout the store and a big screen TV in the middle. I got to see the magic of Xfinity X1 with a voice-activated remote control that makes searching so much easier. Forget trying to type with that keyboard that appears on the screen (which takes FOREVER) because now you simply SAY what you’re searching for! Xfinity Apps let you watch multiple shows, check Facebook, play Pandora, check the weather and do more all on your TV. Are you away from home? No problem because with X1 DVR with cloud technology you can stream DVR recordings and live television on your mobile device.

Xfinity Store Experience

When you get Xfinity Home you’ll be able to monitor and control your home on your mobile. That means you’ll know which doors are open, who last opened them, if the garage door is open or closed and more. You can change the temperature of the thermostat, turn lights on and off all while you’re far away from home!

Xfinity Home Services

Xfinity Home is not just about security, it’s about automating your home systems and giving you more control over them. I love the idea of video monitoring while I’m away from home and my puppy is home alone!

Xfinity Home Services

One of the coolest services I learned about is called Internet Essentials which is affordable internet service available to households with a child in the National School Lunch Program. You will pay only $9.95 a month and you’ll be given the option to buy a computer for only $149.99. Such a great program to bring the internet to school children everywhere!

Please retweet to share Xfinity with your friends:
