Fitness Friday - What's In My Gym Bag



***Disclosure - No compensation received. All opinions stated are of my own.
 
 
 

This week I would like to introduce to you to my best workout buddy.... C4 by Cellucor! I have been using this stuff for years and even though I have tried other pre-workouts I always end up going back to C4. I love the smooth clean energy it gives me when I workout. I know there are a few different types of C4 and I have used the extreme and currently using the C4 Sport. I wasn't too familiar with the difference in these formulas but I did find some info on this Best Workout Supplement Blog they have some great info for beginners that are new to supplements.

Colgate/HDA Oral Health Month June 2015


***Disclosure - This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Colgate-Palmolive. All opinions expressed are of my own.
 
 
 

Did you know more than 11,000 can receive free dental screenings during Colgate's annual oral health month campaign featuring TV personality Karla Martinez? Karla Martinez is a Mexican TV show host. She is best known for hosting the show Control and she is currently a co-host on the popular morning show Despierta America on the Univision Network.



The Hispanic Dental Association joins Colgate to help educate Hispanic families about the importance of healthy habits. Colgate-Palmolive, in partnership with the Hispanic Dental Association (HDA), kicked off its annual Oral Health Month campaign with a special launch event at Los Angeles’s Plaza Mexico. To help raise awareness about the importance of a healthy smile, the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® mobile dental van was on-site to provide bilingual learning materials and free dental screenings to children. Families in attendance also enjoyed a mariachi flash mob, live music and giveaways.

The partnership between the Hispanic Dental Association and Colgate has given them the opportunity to address the various problems and adversities that contribute to poor oral health among the Latino population. Since the inception of Colgate’s Oral Health Month campaign, they have been able to screen more than thousands of children and inform parents of oral care best practices.

Due to factors such as language barriers and lack of awareness about proper dental hygiene, a large percentage of U.S. Latinos tend to experience poor dental conditions and difficulty in accessing oral health education . Colgate’s Oral Health Month aims to empower these consumers by providing the oral health tips and information they need. 

Thanks to the dedicated dental professionals and HDA members, who volunteer aboard Colgate’s fleet of mobile dental vans, screenings have been scheduled in the Los Angeles, Houston, Miami and New York metro areas throughout the month of June.

I believe it is very important for us parents to teach our kids good oral health at a young age. If you start them early it won't be such a foreign subject to them and they will appreciate it later in life. This is such a great program to help show the young ones that oral health is not only important but fun!

My local readers will be able to take advantage of these free screenings in the Houston area this Saturday June 13 at the following locations:


Fiesta Mart #8
2323 Wirt Road
Houston, TX 77055
713-984-2368

From 12:00PM - 2:00PM



Fiesta Mart #4
1603 Spencer Hwy
Houston, TX 77587
713-943-7651

From 4:00PM - 6:00PM

Being a Latina I was super excited to work on this campaign. My 3 year old daughter was so surprised when she saw these beauties come in the mail and I loved the idea behind them. When I was younger we didn't have many fashion dolls that weren't blonde hair, blue eyes and light skin. It's nice that my daughter can have fun fashion dolls that look more like her.

Nowadays there are so many different kinds of supplements to choose from but when it comes to fish oil it's important to find one that is especially rich in the beneficial oils known as omega-3.
