Summer is on the way, and that makes me so excited! I’m a warm weather girl, and I love getting outside for fun and adventure, especially during the Spring and Summer.
Now that warmer weather has arrived here in the south, I’m getting out on the lake as often as I can! I love how lake days give me the opportunity both for being active, and for relaxing and unwinding!
I’ve learned that I must make being active a priority in my life. As a busy mom, it’s easy to push my own health and well-being down the priority list. I must work hard to be intentional about scheduling activities that I enjoy to help me feeling my best.
My first active and balanced life hack is shopping at Walmart. Walmart keeps my home supplied with food, toiletries, household items and more. Being able to buy products that help me live an active lifestyle right there at Walmart, during my weekly shopping trip, means I have more time to actually BE active!

The next thing I have to prioritize each day is starting it right with a better for you breakfast. Whether it’s a normal weekday full of mothering, work, and household chores or a day on the lake, starting with Kashi GO Cereal- Peanut Butter Crunch, which is packed with powerful, plant-based nutrition, allows me to fuel the day.
Since every serving is packed with 10 grams of protein, I know I’ll have the energy to make it through the morning, no matter what plans I have. Because let’s face it, a day of mothering needs just a much fuel as a day of activity on the lake!
On the lake and on-the-go, keeping Optimum Nutrition protein snacks handy are a great way to keep my energy up all day long. You’ll find my current favorites, Salted Toffee Pretzel Protein Crisps and Chocolate Donut Cake Bites, in my lake bag for fueling my favorite lake day activities.
When I want a crispy, salty snack the Salted Toffee Pretzel Protein Crisps are delicious and pack in 20g of protein in each bar!
Or, when I am craving a sweet snack the Chocolate Donut Cake Bites also contain 20g of protein in each package (which contain the cutest three little cake bites).
Watch out when you pull these things out in public- bring extras because you’re sure to have to share!
After an active day Michelob ULTRA, with its pure and refreshing taste, is the perfect guilt-free light beer. (*always drink responsibly!) My cooler often contains Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold and Michelob ULTRA Lime Cactus to enjoy with my friends after an active day on the lake. Pure Gold is a light lager with a superior golden taste, plus it contains just 2.5 carbs and 85 calories!
Michelob ULTRA Lime Cactus is my favorite pick to enjoy on the boat. It has a refreshing lime taste that doesn’t weigh you down. Plus, it contains just 95 calories and 5.5 carbs.
Who wouldn’t want to win a Schwinn Bicycle? Talk about a great way to get out and get active this Summer! The Schwinn Sidewinder will give you a durable ride with its steel mountain-style frame and front suspension fork. It has a wide gear range and shifts quickly too.
