|Vega Pre-Workout Energizer|
I'm not an energy drink connoisseur except for coffee but I know there's a ton of crap in most energy drinks and pre-workout supplements: artificial sweeteners and colors, vasodilators, loads of stimulants.
I like the Vega pre-workout energizer because it tastes good, doesn't have harmful ingredients in it, and gives me a mental and energy boost I need to have a great workout. The açaí flavor is nice, sweet but not sickeningly so. It does have some caffeine in the form of yerba mate and green tea, so don't take it too close to bedtime if you want to sleep.
Vega is all plant-based and has no artificial flavors or colors so the powder looks very "natural" looking:

- a 30-serving tub is about $40. It's pricey but it lasts me 2-3 months as I don't take it every day.
- It has some organic ingredients... but not all organic. At this price I think it should be totally organic. However it's still the best option I've found on the market.
- It doesn't dissolve very easily, most of the time I'll have some left over at the bottom of the glass like this:

I wore my brand new ray cool racerback today to yoga. So neon! I've been wary of lululemon's bright colors lately as they have some serious bleeding issues but let's be real me and dayglo like a moth to a flame but thankfully no problems at all with this one. I think it's more the pinks and purples that bleed rather than yellows.

I did workout 7B of stage 1 of the New Rules of Lifting for Women today. 3 sets of 8 reps of deadlifts, dumbbell shoulder presses, wide-grip lateral pulldowns, lunges, and Swiss ball crunches. I wore my cross my heart tank and groove shorts.
