Wfit nutrition Review of Tendon & Ligament Joint Support and Beyond Protein Powder

Last month Media Talent Agency sent me some Wfit nutrition packets to try for blog review. I got a couple packets of Tendon and Ligament Joint Support and Beyond Protein. 

What is Wfit nutrition? 


  • 100% all natural supplements to support any healthy living diet regimen 
  • Designed for Recovery, Muscle Strength and Joint Care
  • Amazing taste and unique flavors
  • Designed to complement athletes participating in high intensity/endurance workouts 


Tendon and Ligament Joint Support in Natural Citrus Blast Flavor
http://www.wfitnutrition.com/products/tendon-ligament
Tendon & Ligament provides vital support for the 4 physical attributes all elite athletes require for success. While most joint products maintain the state of the joint. Tendon & Ligament helps build, strengthen, and support joint components to sustain an athlete's functional strength. It goes beyond the joints to further support overall healthy skin and connective tissue.*
o    Stronger and more solid foundation*
o    Strong connective tissue*
o    Secure joint structure*
o    Increased elasticity*
Improve flexion and compression at vital pivot points!*
 Performance
What's more, connective tissues and joint structures such as muscle, bone, and cartilage require certain nutrients to assist in building and supporting overall health.* Tendon & Ligament performance provides these nutrients in 3 ways:
1. Build*
o    UCII, an undenatured type II collagen protein, supports joints from the inside out. Type II collagen is the primary collagen found in human cartilage and thus becomes an important component in supporting healthy joints.*
2. Lubricate*
o    Hyaluronic acids' (HA) capability to swell and retain water allows the support of cushioning and lubricating the moving parts within the joints. This supports more effortless joint movement in the athlete.*
3. Strengthen*
o    Specialized collagen protein supports the strengthening of connective tissue and bone. It is an excellent source of amino acids (building blocks of protein), strengthening the tendons and ligaments around the joints, which is crucial for stability and ultimately function of the joints.*

MY REVIEW: 
I added this to 8-9 ounces of cold water in my shaker cup. I was worried it wouldn't shake up very well because it had alot of little clumps. After couple minutes of shaking, I let it settle and it was fine. The taste wasn't bad-there was a tiny after taste of citrus in my mouth when it was done. It doesn't have much sugar, but it tasted a little sweet to me. Since this helps with muscles and protein absorption, I'm going to have my hubby try it as well since we are both doing P90x3 workouts. 





Beyond Protein in flavor Vanilla Coconut

http://www.wfitnutrition.com/products/beyond-protein-clean-natural-protein

Advanced, clean, all natural, hydrolyzed protein for optimal muscle growth and repair. Available in two great flavors! Vanilla-Coconut and Chocolate Mocha. Beyond Protein is the logical choice for long-term performance, muscle health and recovery.
• Metabolized more efficiently
o    Highly soluble
o    High concentration of Di & Tripeptides to help you fuel performance, muscle building and recovery*
o    Promotes increased rate of protein absorption*
o    Small peptides are absorbed through special Peptide Transporters (PEPT-1 &2), found in the upper small intestine.
o    PEPT-1 & 2 move great amounts of protein into your body at much more efficient rates than amino acid transporters.*
o    Peptides can enter your body intact, where they can quickly be delivered to where they are needed.*
• Supports increased nitrogen retention
  • One of the primary goals of protein supplementation is to increase nitrogen retention.
  • Once entered into the body, small peptides rush to where they are needed providing your body with a much greater metabolic benefit than other forms of protein or amino acids such as soy or pea.*
  • Di & tripeptides delivered intact into general circulation avoid excessive oxidation in the liver compared to supplemental amino acids.*
 Muscle building and recovery by synthesis
o    When your body increases its nitrogen retention, that means your body is able to boost protein synthesis—the process by which muscle tissue repairs itself after hard training.*
o    In addition the peptides also help boost serum insulin and amino acid stores.*
o    It all adds up to help drive muscle-building processes and recovery.*
o    Di & Tripeptides also help increase the amount of PEPT transporters occupying the absorptive surface of the small intestine.*
o    Allows more Di & Tripeptides to be absorbed, which continues to fuel your body’s growth and repair.*


 MY REVIEW: 
I am going to have my husband try this protein powder because I have lactose issues. I will post again after he has tried it.

Victoria's Promise by Julie Wright book review. Newport Ladies Book Club

Book Review of the new Newport Ladies Book Club newest book: 

Victoria's Promise by Julie Wright


I loved this book like I have enjoyed all the others in this series. Like the other books, they can be read alone and not as a series, but I love how all the characters and story lines tie together. Its so fun (and I'm sure alot more work) that the authors worked together to do that.
Victoria-goes by Tori-works for a reality love show called the Vows. Similar to The Bachelor show on Tv. I loved seeing glimpses into her work life and her small personal life and when she went to book club meetings with the other girls. Her last relationship ended badly because she is very consumed in her work and also trying to write in her spare time. She tries to balance her work life and personal life as well as dealing with rejections in this book. I LOVED the ending-totally wasn't expecting it. I wasn't sure honestly if it was going to end well, so I was pleasantly surprised!!
This is a good, clean fiction book-no bad language or sex/inappropriate scenes. The story line moves fast enough to keep my attention and I would recommend this book! A+




Book Description on Amazon for Kindle vesion:

 January 2, 2014
A luxurious mansion. Thirty stunning bachelorettes. One very eligible bachelor. All of the ingredients are in place for a successful reality dating show, and behind the scenes, Tori Winters is set to pull the romantic strings as assistant director of Vows. Despite her distaste for public exhibitions of love—which spelled the death of her last relationship—Tori intends to give the public exactly what they want: scintillating footage of a bevvy of beauties vying for the attention of Christopher Caine. But Chris, a consummate Southern gentleman and the star of Vows, seems almost too good to be true—and soon, even Tori finds herself falling under his spell. Despite legal obligations to avoid fraternizing with the talent, it’s clear her feelings are anything but unrequited. With the support of her friends in the Newport Ladies Book Club, Tori must make a life-altering decision: is she willing to jeopardize all she’s worked for in order to embrace her own fairy-tale ending?

Week 3 recap of P90x3 with journal entries and pictures

Started week 3 of P90x3 this week!!

Honestly I'm surprised I've stuck with it this long because I'm not really a Tony Horton fan... sometimes hes funny, but his constant chatter and then complaining about gym people really, really get on my nerves!!
I think I'm mostly curious about the other dvds and what results I will get if I stick with the program. Plus I really really LOVE the CVX fitness dvd!!

WEEK 1-3 P90x3 Classic workout schedule: 
Monday: Total Synergistics
Tuesday: Agility X
Wednesday: Yoga X3
Thursday: The Challenge
Friday: CVX
Saturday: The Warrior
Sunday: Rest day or Dynamix

Nutrition: 
I will be following the Plan B 1800 calories per day.

Breakfast: 2P, 3C, 1F
Am Snack: 2C, 2F
Lunch: 1P, 3C, 1F
PM Snack: 1P, 2C
Dinner: 2P, 2C, 2F
P=Protein servings per meal
C=Carb servings per meal
F=Far servings per meal


Journal Entries for Week 3:

Monday January 20:
Today was Total Body Synergistics. I like doing pullups with my equalizer bars but I HATE doing the two "boat" moves in this dvd. I haven't gotten any better doing the boat moves after my third time/week 3 of doing this dvd. :-(
I did decide to up my weights from using 3 and 5 pounds, to using 5 and 6.5 pounds. woot woot!! I always start slow with my weights so I don't get neck strain. Enjoyed using the heavier weights.
Burned 218 calories in 34 minutes according to my HRM.

Did excellent with my eating today! I logged everything and stayed under my calories!! whoohoo!!

Tuesday January 21:
Today was suppose to be Agility X but I slept in expecting a SNOW day off from work, which I did not get!! Then I worked 9 or 10 hours that night, so no evening workout for me; :-(

I did log all my food except for dinner on Tuesday.

Wednesday January 22:
I DID NOT DO YOGA!!! ARGH!! I need someone to text or message me on Wednesdays and tell me NOT to slack off and to do my yoga!! It's happened 2 weeks in a row! :-( another VERY long work day for me and no food logging for me either.

Thursday January 23: 
Did Agility X to make up from Tuesday workout. Doing better with this workout! Burned 221 calories in 30 mins according to my HRM.
Then did The Challenge, which is my second favorite workout! I consistently did 10 pullups and 15 pushups through out the rotations and sets. The last two weeks I haven't kept track and just did as many as I wanted. Tried to stay consistent today with my reps.  Burned 208 calories in 30 minutes.

Logged everything in my fitbook for my nutrition! I'm having good things, the same things; but I need to follow the nutrition schedule of the meal break down of fats, protein and carbs alot better!

Friday January 24: 
Did my favorite workout-CVX today! Used the 4 pound medicine ball, as well as a 7 pound medicine weight. I need to find a 6 pound one because the 7 was a little too much for me.
Also tried to "show of" and did two P90x3 balance moves with the medicine ball on my Bosu ball. It was super tricky trying to balance while taking a picture! argh!

Logged everything in my Fitbook except for dinner. Started to feel really sick after dinner so went to bed early.

Saturday January 25:
Today was suppose to be The Warrior, but I was up friday night sooooo sick so I chose to sleep in Saturday morning. I felt alot better (it must have been food I ate friday night) so I went rollar skating with the family for 2 hours-probably skated at least 45 minutes. My hubby asked me twice if we were going to workout, but frankly at 9pm at night, I don't want to do any workouts!!

Sunday January 26: 
Rest Day!!

Ready to start week 4, which are almost all new dvd workouts!! Can't wait to see how this upcoming week goes!!

This week's pictures: 







How did you do with your workouts last week??

Do you struggle with doing Yoga or other flexibility workouts like I do??

Monday January 20:
This morning was Power. I really love this workout! I have started wearing weight lifting gloves to protect my hands while using the resistance bands, plus sometimes my hands feel itchy afterwards from the band. It's helped alot!  I've been trying to really focus on my form and get more reps in since I'm on week 3. My HRM said I burned 287 calories in 51 minutes.

Tues January 21:
This morning I did Slim. Great cardio burn. I like that we do some of the same moves but in different rotations. My HRM said I burned 283 calories in 40 minutes.

Wednesday January 22:
I did not do Yoga today. so much for following my schedule 100% this week. :-( I've worked 9-10 hour days at work Mon, Tues and Wed this week. I'm so tired and stressed. :-( Didn't log anything in my book for food. I probably had sugar today too. UGH!!!

Thursday January 23:
Rest Day for Baladea.

Friday January 24:
Did Slim this morning-felt great to get back on track!! Burned 298 calories in 39 minutes. Really tried to do less modifications and more jumping to keep my heart rate up!

Saturday January 25:
Today was suppose to be power workout. which I LOVE and I HATE that I missed it! :-( I was up friday night sooooo sick so I chose to sleep in Saturday morning. I felt alot better (it must have been food I ate friday night) so I went roller skating with the family for 2 hours-probably skated at least 45 minutes. My hubby asked me twice if we were going to workout, but frankly at 9pm at night, I don't want to do a 50 minute workout; so I missed doing it! :-(

10 ways to use a foam roller!

Do you use a foam roller?

I never use to but ever since my race training and my half marathon this past September, I have had to use one on my right hamstring almost every time I exercise. :-(

I found this article last week online and wanted to share it with my readers... Great resource-enjoy!!

Journal Entries for Week 2:

Monday January 13:
Did Total Synergistics today. I felt like it went alot better than last week. I'm trying something different this week. Instead of doing my P90x3 workouts in the evenings and my Baladea program in the mornings; I'm getting up at 5am to do both my workouts in the morning. So far so good!
Burned 315 calories in 50 minutes. Used my lebert equalizer bars and my 3 and 5 pound hand weights.

Nutrition went well today. Logged everything in my fitbook except dinner and pm  snack.

Tuesday January 14:
Today I did Agility x. Great cardio workout, and again felt like I did better than last week. Burned 276 calories in 36 minutes. Pleased with my progress so far. Feeling more positive about doing P90x3 than last week but still taking it a day at a time.

Had another good nutrition day and logged everything but dinner in my fitbook.

Wednesday January 15:
Took a rest day today and didn't do any Yoga. I really dread Wednesday's because Yoga is scheduled on my Baladea and P90x3 schedule.

Super stressful day at work, totally Pmsing and bad night with the kids after work. Didn't write down any of my food today.

Thursday January 16:
Got up at 5am to do two workouts and determined to have a better day. Did The Challenge workout and burned 170 calories in 31 minutes. I love using my lebert bars and power push up stands. Making progress with doing more push ups and pull ups on my bars.

Only logged my breakfast and am snack today. Drank lots of water though!

Friday January 17:
Took a rest day today! started my period and really feeling tired and fatigued. Didnt log any food or water today. Such a bust this week! :-(

Saturday January 18:
Got up at 630am just to make sure I got my two workouts down before the kids woke up. Did CVX from yesterday's schedule-burned 272 calories in 35 minutes. I used my 4 pound medicine ball again during this workout. THIS IS MY FAVORITE P90x3 workout for sure!!! I just love that its cardio but with using a weight, I'm getting strength training done as well!! LOVE!!

Drank my CORE POWER protein drink after my two workouts and it was so delicious!! Totally didn't log anything the rest of the day. It's hard to remember to log my food when I'm at home, running errands and taking care of the kids all day. Hubby and I did work on our gym and putting things up on the wall so I'll post pics soon with what it looks like! :-)

Sunday January 19:
Rest Day!

Journal Entries for this week 2: 

Monday January 13:
Today was the Power workout with the 8 pound resistance band. This is one of my favorite workouts. I'm excited to be doing it twice this week!! I was SUPER excited that I was actually able to do 4 or 5 side planks on both sides with my legs and arms extended-like the picture I posted below. It is such a hard move and I'm thrilled in just ONE week that I'm seeing progress!! woot woot!!
Burned 315 calories in 50 minutes according to my HRM.

Tuesday January 14:
Today was Slim cardio workout. This is always fun and gets my hear pumping! I'm glad my HRM is working again with new batteries.
Burned 277 calories in 40 minutes.

Wednesday January 15:
Was suppose to do Yoga today but I worked late and had a horrible time putting the kids to bed so I went to bed myself and didn't do any workouts today.

Thursday January 16:
Rest Day!!

Friday January 17:
Rest Day... again!! :-( PMS-need I say more??!! UGH!!!

Saturday January 18:
Did Power today. I hate that I had 3 off days in a row with my Baladea workout so I made sure to get up early even though it was saturday! Had to take it easy but still an awesome workout. I LOVE the last session which is abs on the floor. I usually HATE ab work but I love that Holly uses a towel for her ab moves. Makes a ton of difference!
Burned 269 calories in 51 minutes according to my HRM.

Sunday January 19:
Rest Day!

Here are my pictures from the week:
Overall I was obviously disapointed with my week 2 but I have to take it easy for at least 2 or 3 days when I have my period, so I just do the best I can and move on.
Ready to start an awesome week 3!!
