I've been a fan of Crystal Light drink mixes for years! They contain no sugar, and they come in a wide variety of yummy fruit flavors. I've always got one or two of their convenient on-the-go powdered drink mix packets in my purse...and a bottle of the liquid drops at my desk. Both varieties are great for making flavorful low calorie drinks -- especially after a workout! I recently started back at the gym, so I understand the importance of staying hydrated during and after working out. Water is the best way to stay hydrated, but sometimes the taste of plain water gets a bit...boring. Enter Crystal Light! I simply add a few drops to a bottle of water, and I get all the benefits of water...along with a burst of yummy no-calorie flavor.
Most of the time, I purchase my Crystal Light from the Drink Mixes aisle at the Walmart nearest my office. They offer a good selection of both liquid and powdered flavor packs, which I love to combine to create customized flavored waters! I especially love tropical flavors. My current post-workout favorite combines equal amounts of Tropical Coconut and Mango Passionfruit Crystal Light liquid in a 16-ounce bottle of water. It's sweetly tart, with a perfect coconut background flavor...and the vibrant orange color is gorgeous too!
All I need are some of my favorite tunes and a bottle of this Crystal Light-infused water -- and I'm ready to hit the treadmill! I love tunes that make me want to move and help the 30-45 minutes on the treadmill speed by. Some of my favorite current workout tunes include the following:
- Love On Top: Beyonce
- Dance Apocalyptic: Janelle Monae
- Send Your Love: Sting
- Get Lucky: Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams
- Maps: Maroon 5
- Time Bomb: Kylie Minogue
- Love Never Felt So Good: Michael Jackson
- Dead Man's Party: Oingo Boingo
- Discotheque: U2
- All That's Left: Miranda Lambert
