I like to eat VitaPizza before nuun.

I've noticed that when you are currently out of a job, and the children are gone for eight hours a day, you can still stay very busy.  

Case in point:

The laundry is always done.
The dog enjoys longer walks. 
The Christmas cards are not only ordered, but I have already received them.  All that they need is a festive stamp, and they're ready to go to the post office.
The beds are all made. 
I can go for a run any time I want between the hours of 8:30 and 4:00.
It's not even December, and my Christmas shopping is 90% complete.
I found every single Lego that has been strewn in every single corner of my house. 
I can go to the library a couple times a week, and score books like "Kyle Richards: Life Is Not A Reality Show" off of the new release shelf.
I can have lunch with my husband three days in a row.  And after one such lunch, take in a 12:40 p.m. screening of Breaking Dawn Part Two.
I can plan my race schedule for 2013, which includes finding four other running friends to make a relay team for Seneca 77.7.  Which isn't until April. 
I know that I will busy for a few hours one day next week, when I go to the movies to see Breaking Dawn Part Two for a second time.
And although it took me over 45 minutes to complete an online application for a job I am interested in, I really didn't mind.

I can also eat pizza for breakfast.

Make that a guilt free VitaPizza.

I tried both the cheese & tomato, and the meatless pepperoni supreme.  It took ten minutes to bake in the oven, but you can also microwave it. The toppings were spread evenly over the whole wheat crust, I thought it could have used a bit more sauce, but that's just me.  Honestly, if the mood strikes, and I can eat a low fat, low calorie, nutrient dense pizza, that has less calories than my breakfast smoothie, why the heck not?

The past two mornings I went running with J&N, it was cold today, and the roads were icy yesterday.  Winter has definitely arrived, I don't mind it really, but it's hard to believe that summer was just 12 weeks ago.

I've been drinking nuun for a while now, I discovered it a couple years ago while marathon training.  I like the convenience of it, you drop a low calorie electrolyte tablet in a bottle of water and you're good to go.  

nuun recently came out with nuun All Day, it has less than 8 calories per tablet, along with a blend of A, B, C, D, and E vitamins.  I would bring a couple of bottles of the All Day to the pool, and share it with the kids.  I preferred the grape raspberry, the blueberry pomegranate flavor was a bit diluted.  Again, I love the convenience, and compared to other hydrating drinks, it's a cost effective choice, especially when you're on a budget.

I also liked going to the pool.

*Note: I was sent samples of VitaPizza and nuun for the purpose of this review, my opinions are my own.

The picture with the nuun bottle and your knees looked like two fingers holding a miniature nuun bottle at first glance. My first thought: where did she get the tiniest nuun bottle ever!:)
