Making the Most of My Commute

Scuba Gear

One of my favorite things to do during the summertime is going to the beach.  Especially after the winter blues, and the best part about going to the beach is showing off my new runner's body.

And what better way to show off my body than in a cute swimsuit from some of my favorite stores.
And they have some awesome cover ups too after coming in from the water.

One of the things i am excited about trying this summer is scuba diving.  And with this new adventure comes the gear.  I found some awesome deals for wetsuit.  They are reasonably price and well made.

I cannot wait to try my  wetsuits on when they come.  There is nothing better than having the right type of outfit on for scuba diving.  It definitely makes all the difference.  The last thing i want to be worrying about while diving is whether my suit fits properly or not.  I want to enjoy myself completely.

You should definitely check them out when you get a chance!!

Krill Oil...

I have been using fish oil for a while for my joints, skin,  and running endurance. 
When taking the my joints feel the same as well as my endurance. My skin though has improved. My skin is less dry, and thats saying something for me. Because my skin is normally dry and gets really dry in the winter time. 

I grew up on fish oil, so i know the benefits of Omega-3's. All these years though I wondered why they couldnt make the pill smaller and easier on the stomach. I heard people talking about another Omega-3 the was smaller, easier on the stomach, and had added benefits. 

The good thing about Krill is that they are easier to swallow and they dont upset my stomach. This might seem minute, but if you cant swallow the pills and they mess with your stomach, the less likely you are to take fish oil and you will not get all the benefits. Some of my friends tell they eat fish often, after I tell them they should be taking fish oil. 

The truth is we would need to eat around two to three pounds of fish daily to equal the amounts found in supplement form. Thats why I like the Krill pills. You can get the proper amount of EPA and DHA in one to two small pills. I remember sometimes I would skip the fish oil, just because it was too big. Beyond the obvious benefits, Krill has helped my muscle soreness. 

Astaxanthin I found was naturally occuring in krill oil. I researched it, and found out it is an antioxidant that helps the protect the muscles from oxidative damage from exercising and environmental pollutants. Its benefits also include immune fighting, anti-inflammatory, and neurodegenerative diseases of the eye which was a plus. 

I will be using krill oil from now and I will be able to be consistant because of the small size and its ease on the stomach.
