I have been traveling nonstop for work and I haven’t had much time to blog…or sleep…or much of anything that doesn’t involve a camera.  I definitely don’t have much time to focus on diet and exercise! I have recently lost 25 pounds and it has been quite the struggle keeping the fitness/diet ball rolling while traveling, especially when Chick Fil A & In and Out are a thing.  Plus, I wanna try ALL the delicious fattening foods across this beautiful country- om nom nom. Sometimes when you have limited resources and are chronically basking in the beautiful glow of a burger joint neon light sign you gotta get creative.

Here are 3 awesome products that help me stay healthy on the go!

1. A multi vitamin.

If you are constantly on the go, not getting your recommended hours of sleep and not eating your best, a multivitamin is a great way to get all your daily nutrients in a one stop shop. We all know that vitamins provide many positive health benefits, but they can also be a great added step to your beauty routine-for example Biotin can work wonders for your hair and nails!

My favorite vitamins right now are the Sundown Naturals® Biotin gummies for that exact reason, plus who doesn’t love gummies? They are the BEST y’all! I’m like a child and have to be tricked into taking my vitamins and these bad boys are where it’s at! Make sure you don’t overdo it.  Just because they are gummies doesn’t mean you can eat the whole bottle. I snag my Sundown Naturals® at Walmart! Also if you like to take your health to what I like to call the Cali level (I’m on the Alabama level-which is basically try not to be an animal and don’t super-size everything) these yummy nom noms are free of gluten, dairy, and artificial flavors◊. Sundown Naturals® even have an awesome quiz you can take on their website to help you determine which gummies are best for you) and y’all know I’m a sucker for online quizzes (especially if they have to do with gummies….or which Disney princess I am-Pocahontas cough cough).

2. A fitness tracker/smart watch

Ok y’all I live and die by my Apple Watch. Like legit one of the best discoveries of my adult life and is a major DJ Khaled style key to my get skinny success. It literally tracks every move I make and holds me accountable when I don’t make any moves – like literally… Y’all it yells at me when I’ve been sitting too long so I can stand up and walk around, which brings to my attention when I’m being a slob and also makes me feel like a winner on those long work days when I feel like I haven’t worked out, but in actuality I’ve taken 50 bajillion steps. I AM OBSESSED.

It also has all my other work apps so I can answer texts and calls in the middle of a shoot, and it even has an app that tells me within the minute what the best sunlight of the day will be for shoots. SO CLUTCH. I swear by my Apple Watch, but some people swear by their Fitbit-either way a fitness tracker is an awesome way to keep up with your health while on the go.

3. An insulated tumbler

I can’t live without my VGB 16 oz Corkcicle tumbler. If you aren’t one of the thousands of people who haven’t hopped on the insulated tumbler train, slap yourself then go out and buy you one! Corkcicle got their stellar reputation from their insulated wine aerators but this tumbler doesn’t disappoint! For starters it is HUGE and its vacuum insulated.  It doesn’t sweat and it’ll keep your drink cold (or hot if that’s your thing) ALL DAY. No really ALL DAY.

I am guilty of making a drink then throwing it out when the ice melts so this thing has really helped me in getting my daily water intake. I’m out in the Alabama heat a lot on shoots and it helps me stay hydrated. Sometimes (all the time, anytime) I confuse my thirst with hunger, so this thing really helps me avoid overeating. I didn’t tell you this if anyone asks but it also can hold a hell of a lot of Chardonnay after a long shoot- Pro tip.
