Easy Blueberry Protein Smoothie and Albion Fit Swimsuit Giveaway

Blueberry Protein Smoothie - www.countrycleaver.com

I love summer, don’t you? I’ve missed the windows down driving, singing of off-key car karaoke, and being any color darker than glow-in-the-dark flourescent white. Hitting the gym has become part of my near daily routine, I love the feeling of knowing that I accomplished something during the day, shaken off the cobwebs and reduced the daily stresses of my day. Working out and being active is an important piece to so many facets of life and I relish those minutes and hours of sweaty, red faced, exhaustion. Whether its taking a Total Ball class, spinning, kickboxing, or lifting weights, I want to come away not just feeling good, but feeling like a rock star in my own right.

To make sure that feel-good feeling doesn’t stop at as soon as I leave the gym, I’m fueling up with my daily smoothie. Even Ben has taken to morning smoothies, so I make one for each of us just before walking out the door to start my day. Fresh fruits are everywhere, but frozen has been just as great. I’ve been switching between strawberry and blueberries, sometimes even adding in a banana somewhere in there. Such a rebel. Adding a scoop of high protein, low sugar powder helps give me a more well rounded and balanced smoothie that keeps me fuller for longer and primed until my lunch time workout.

Along with working out and fueling up right, dressing for any activity is important – including sitting poolside and taking a dip!  I fell head over heels in love with Albion Fit – with their adorable, feminine, and ultra sleeks fit wear. Everything in their line up is colorful, stylish, and is incredibly high quality.

The old one piece swimsuit ain’t what it used to be – and Albion Fit definitely proves that one pieces can be ultra feminine, glamourous, and flattering.  The Jaw Dropper, in green and black and white caught my eye right off the bat. In fact, I got one that I can’t wait to use when I am in Florida in two weeks! The green sash pulls the whole thing together and gives the suit a gorgeous silhouette.

But if swimsuits aren’t your thing – they have some of the funnest workout gear like this Rainbow skirt in pink, white and gray. Adorbs.

I couldn’t find one thing on their site that I didn’t want. If I had a closet full of Albion gear, I would be the comfiest person ever. If I’m not at work, I’m living in my yoga pants and comfies. And there is nothing wrong with being comfy and stylish all at the same time. Albion Fit totally found the perfect balance with their new line and they have been generous enough to giveaway a Jaw Dropper swimsuit like the one above, the same one I got, to a lucky reader!! How sweet is that?
