I hate winter.
It's so blah. Okay I admit, when the snow first falls and is clean and white, I think it's beautiful for a few minutes ;o)
One of the things that I hate about winter is how early it gets dark. With the lowering of temperature and it being dark outside all I want is to sit on the couch with some hot cocoa under a blanket, watching mind numbing reality t.v.
But I have way too many kids for that scenario.
Plus I'm a full-time student. I'm trying to clean the house, cook, take care of kids, run them to where they need to go, doctor appts, occupational therapy for lil stinker, study, do homework, get up through the night with the baby, up in the morning to get kids off to school, work on blog...everything on my own. I'm tired of being tired!
I was very interested in reviewing Celsius. First, there are some days I need a little kick. Two, I love drinks when they come in the flavor of green tea. And Celsius has 2 green tea flavors.
Celsius comes in
(Non carbonated flavors)
Lemon Iced Tea
Peach Mango Green Tea
Raspberry Acai Green Tea
Orange (they use blood oranges since they are sweeter and less acidic)
Wild Berry (cranberry, raspberry and touch of cherry)
Celsius 1. Burns Calories 2. Reduce Body Fat 3. Energize Metabolism 4. Lasting Energy 5. Clinically Validated (you can go to http://www.celsius.com/ to read the clinical studies)
It has no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial colors or flavors, no aspartame (yay!), no sugar and low in calories.
You can burn up to 100 calories with each can of Celsius.
Celsius is great as a pre-workout drink (drink 15 mins prior to workout) and can increase fat loss, help you gain muscle mass and improve your endurance.
They also offer On-the-Go Packets for your water bottles in berry flavor. I loved this, and this morning drank this instead of coffee. I hope to make this something I do daily.
They also offer 2.5oz Celsius shots
A few years ago before being pregnant with #4, I went to the gym all the time. I was doing the whole lifting weights, drinking the protein shakes etc. And if any of you go to the gym more than twice a week, you know there are sometimes you go and just drag. Drinking a thermogenesis drink before going to they gym helps so much. Not only are you preparing your body for the workout, but you are helping your body increase it's calorie burning, and increasing your energy...therefore exercising harder and longer. I knew what I ate and/or would drink, before my workout affected my workout greatly.
Now that I have a baby that needs me so much going to gym is usually just a wish. I try to lose and/or maintain by eating right, drinking right and getting exercise when I can. Drinking Celsius can maximize my results for what little exercise I get to do each day. So whether you are a busy mom about to get busier for the holidays, a college student or a regular fitness guru...you can greatly benefit from Celsius.
I liked all the flavors, but the green teas and strawberry kiwi were my favorites. I even liked the lemon iced tea and I don't drink iced tea.
You can buy Celsius at CVS, Walmart and where fitness drinks are sold. I seen some at my local Meijer.
