#poweredbybits // an ENERGYbits GIVEAWAY!

happy tuesday, everybody!
after taking two days off after my race this weekend, i jumped right in to a new workout program!
i re-started the beachbody turbokick series. when i lived in portland, i use to take a turbokick class & it was my absolute favorite! i have the dvd workout series & will follow the program through the fall & winter. i have some super-exciting fitness goals on the horizon that i will be sharing soon ;)

lets talk about energy bits!
have you heard of them?
they are aspirin-sized tablets of spirulina {fresh water blue green algae} that give you a huge boost of energy. they are perfect for sleepy days or to help power you through your workouts.

i was sent a sample to try out & to be honest, it took me a while to get up the nerve to take them.
the tin contains about 75 tablets & the company suggests you take 30 tablets before your workout. im not a good 'pill taker' {i get that from my mother.} pills are hard for me to swallow; let alone 30.

from their site :
Spirulina is nature’s equivalent to an energy drink – but its even better because it’s 100% natural, 100% green, is carbon neutral, has only ONE calorie per tab and contains no sugar, no caffeine, no chemicals, no gluten and no soy. It is the richest source of protein in the world (60% - 70%), has more beta carotene, more antioxidants, more iron than any other food  

with my race coming up, i decided to try out the bits for some of my harder workouts {40min run + 60min bike, 90min bike, ect}. i am totally convinced they work, you guys! on a few longer rides and harder brick workouts, i felt really great. my legs weren't as tired and i didnt feel as 'bonk-y' towards the end!

bonus : two weeks ago, at the healthy living summit, all attendees got a tin of bits.
bonus x2 : the ONLY ingredient in energy bits is the spirulina algae ; nothing else! no crap, no additives ; NOTHING ELSE!

saturday morning {duathlon race day}, i drank some water, 30 bits & an energy bar and felt really great on the first run & during the bike ride.
you can read my whole recap here ;)
