Summer Shape Up Challenge Balance Bar Giveaway #BalanceShapeUp

Disclosure: I received a Walmart gift card as part of a sponsored collaboration for the Summer Shape Up Challenge with Balance Bar.

I used to have this unrealistic belief that I could actually fit in my workout routine during the summer just as well as I could during the school year. Last year I finally realized that it was not very realistic, and it was not going to happen.

When summertime comes, I am on the go all the time with the kids. They had swim team throughout June and July, which in itself, is time-consuming. I also oversee the swim lessons at our pool. This takes place throughout June and July as well. We run our lessons right after swim team practice Monday – Friday and have three 40-minute sessions.

Basically we are gone every morning until lunchtime all summer long! However, just because I cannot make it to the gym does not mean I cannot stay in shape. I also like to take advantage of the pool by swimming laps while the kids are playing with their friends.

This summer Balance Bar is promoting their Summer Shape-Up Challenge.  This is a 40-day challenge that is filled with 30-minute workouts, healthy eating tips, and multiple social media giveaways. Did you know they follow the 40-30-30 Nutrition Principle? This is designed to help your body keep up with your on-the-go life.

Having a Balance Bar before or after you exercise is a great way to boost your workout, by adding energy and protein to your system. It comes in the perfect size to add just what you need to your exercise routine by offering 40% Carbohydrates, 30% Protein, and 30% Dietary Fat. It promotes slow glycemic response, muscle recovery, and helps satisfy hunger with stead, sustained energy.

Among the many great flavors offered by Balance Bar, they have now introduced two more great flavors, Peanut Butter and Cookie Dough. Unfortunately the Walmart by my house only had the Peanut Butter flavor in stock so I cannot share with you how delicious those would taste. However, there are more than 17 different flavors you can choose from at Walmart stores.! They are creamy and truly taste like peanut butter, but not overwhelmingly so.

They come packaged in a convenient box of 6 bars to a box. I grab a bar before heading out to the pool. They definitely help keep up my energy levels throughout my workout, or help me recover more quickly afterwards.

Do you have a summer workout routine that fits in with your children’s summer schedule? I’d love to hear what you do to stay fit throughout the summer!
