Triathelete tests out GNC protein powder

Quoted from

FitFluential is a nationwide network of fitness enthusiasts sharing their journey both online and offline via multiple social media platforms. FitFluential is also a social media agency that creates unique contextual marketing campaigns for brands interested in connecting with fitness enthusiasts.

I’ve written in the past mentioning that I am a FitFluential Ambassador. Basically what that means is that I’ll be dealing with FitFluential brand partners. If a new product or social media campaign launches I will be given the opportunity to participate in reviewing in the brand or product available to others. The entire FitFluential team is forever growing and we’re up into the hundreds now. I’d like to think I have an advantage being Canadian and all, since we’re the minority for now.

That’s my Boy! All photos of my hunky-dory boyfriend taken by yours truly.

I had the chance to let my Boyfriend try out a Whey Protein Powder from GNC Canada. Since he drinks those all of the time, and I’ve only had sample cups of them at Triathlon race sites, I thought it would be better to pass along this one to him, as he pretty much knows his stuff.

I didn’t want him to review it til he was almost all the way through the powder. We received this giant jug of it back in January and he’s been drinking it after every workout since.

See the headlines now, hey? Triathelete tests out GNC Canada protein powder. You can buy it for $49.99 for a 908g tub.

So my Boyfriend says that this is one of the better protein powders he’s ever drank. It’s because the powder itself is very fine and easy to mix.

Glug glug glug!

All mixed up.

As for the taste? Which is probably the most important part because you don’t want to be gagging on a nasty shake after a hard workout. I quote my Boyfriend when he says: “The shake doesn’t have the normal protein stank to it“. You can always taste the strong protein in protein shakes but with this one it’s mild and clearly easy to get down.

Thanks to GNC and FitFluential for the opportunity to review the protein powder. All opinions are 100% from my boyfriend ;)

Recent YouTube videos

Back again for the third time today. Third time’s a charm right? Unless it’s a bad situation like having to go through bulging disc surgery. That doesn’t seem like any fun.

Have you seen my recent YouTube videos? I’ve posted a handful last week and in case you missed out I’m putting them all here tonight for your viewing. How fun!

All About Eyes using Vasanti’s mascara and an eye brightening concealer.

An outfit of the work week which you probably saw on this post.

Glymm box unveiling. Hey, they don’t have candy in their boxes anymore! What a disappointment. I ended up tweeting them asking them why. Apparently the glass jars broke in the mail. Mine never did. Send’em on over to me! I love jelly bellys.

My second TopBox opening. Loving the products inside.

 I have a ton of new videos lined up to film this week. I’m thinking of doing a haul video on some clothing items I bought, as well as my haul, and maybe if my Luxe Box Loose Button comes in today, I’ll film that tonight!

Stay tuned, but for now—enjoy the videos :)

Christmas gift basket – for a good cause!

Why hello there…

I have a special blog post for you all today. Something I always look forward to receiving.

This is my third Gourmet Gift Basket (see one and two) that I have gotten to review on my blog. If you remember last December I reviewed a Gourmet Gift Basket that was full of great treats. Well, a few months ago I was contacted again by the company and I decided to stick to what I knew I enjoyed and loved last time, which is the Christmas Gift Basket Classic.

It retails for $59.99. I’m diggin in!

MY FAVORITE. Their chocolate chip pecan cookies. These are the first to go in our household.

Tons of chocolate goodies. Every girl’s dream.Chocolate, popcorn, peanut crunch? All, to die for. That’s my crazy face for Let’s dig in now! No more photos!

Hey, what? Alfie! What are you doing in there? Guess he wants some of our Gourmet Gift Basket as well. Ha! Too bad, not dog friendly.

Unfortunately, I do not have a giveaway to offer my readers this time. However, if you would like to take part and give a donation to the Military (no purchase necessary! Just a blog post!).  All you have to do is review the selection of these Christmas Gifts on your own blog. The topic of the blog post should discuss their Christmas gift selection and how great of a gift it would be for someone. For every blog post written about the Christmas Gift selection — Gourmet Gift Basket will donate two care packages to the Military on your behalf.

Please note that the Military Donation blog posts should be posted between November 21 — December 9.

Leave it in the comments below to let me know if you have written a blog entry on the baskets. Then I can forward it back to my contact person at Gourmet Gift baskets by December 14 so he can make sure that all the care packages being donated can reach the soldiers in time for Christmas.

Doesn’t that just warm your heart? I hope you end up participating! :)
