Diet Standards AminoHD 1000 BCAA Capsules Are Important For Anyone Dieting!

I have been dieting now for a while and one thing I am concerned about is loosing the weight and loosing muscle. I want to do the one, but not the other! So watching how much protein I have is important. Diet Standards has made a great BCAA supplement that makes it a lot easier to get all the protein I need and still be able to keep loosing the pounds safely.

What is BCAA?
Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) are the building blocks of protein.

What can you expect from taking pure BCAA?
Preliminary studies indicate the following effects:
Leucine (1 of the 3 BCAA’s) caused a 145% boost of protein synthesis vs 41% boost with exercise alone. (Pubmed Article: PMC2706121)
4g per day of Leucine caused a 41% increase in 5-RM strength vs. 31% increase in a a placebo group. (Pubmed Article: 21487148) BCAA Supplementation created a 17.2% greater resistance to fatigue over a placebo. (Pubmed Article: 21297567)

So what does that mean? Well it means that you can get a lot of extra help in your exercise and diet routine by adding a good BCAA to your diet. Diet Standards BCAA has been so helpful to me. My energy level is much better than it was before. I actually look forward to exercising now and that is something I have not done for a long time. I also have fewer problems with aches and pains as I exercise. Being in my 50's, I have all those aging little problems we can all get, especially in one knee. Since I have been using the AminoHD 1000 my knee has not been giving me half the trouble it used to when I walk or use my stepper.

I take the capsules before i exercise or go for a walk and then after as well. The capsules are not big and there are no additives in them at all. Love that! I've seen a difference, not huge, but enough that i am going to keep taking them!

You can purchase your own bottle of AminoHD 1000 HERE!

KitchenwarePlus Bamboo Cutting Boards Are A Wonderful Value!

If you are like me, you never seem to have enough counter space in your kitchen. Some how it always seems to get eaten up with projects and all kinds of things.

One thing I love to do is turn my sink into extra counter space with a really good cutting board. Kitchenware Plus has an awesome set of cutting boards that helps me do that and then some!

I received a set of 2 Bamboo Cutting Boards and they are wonderful. Both sizes are perfect for all the cutting I ever need to do in my kitchen.

The largest is 18" x 13" and fits really well either on my countertops or over my sink. I love having the cutting board over my sink because it frees up space on the counters and any excess stuff that might want to spill around from the cutting board falls right into the sink and is less mess to clean up.

The smallest size is 13" x 8.5" and is just right for those quick small cutting jobs you have to do. This is the kind of smaller sized board that you can keep out and ready to use all the time. I love it for cutting sandwiches, small veggies and more.

Both of the boards have beautiful color to them, so they aren't just handy to have and use, they look good too, even after several uses and washes. The bamboo holds up well too with the abuse that knives can put on a board. And I love the drip grooves in both them! They are deeper than any other board I have tried, so less of the gunk spills over the outer edge. Really nice when I am cutting up a roast or ham.

To me it is also important that they are made from a wood that is very eco-friendly! Bamboo grows quickly and is one of the strongest woods you can have for a board and they are still not super heavy. They are both much lighter than the average wooden cutting boards. Plus they come with a 100% Lifetime Guarantee! That's a major plus.

These boards would make a wonderful gift for someone, especially someone who is just starting out! What a great shower gift they would be.

You can get your own set of KitchenwarePlus Bamboo Cutting Boards HERE!

The Hardest Peace Is An Exceptional Book!

This is a very real book. What do I mean by that? I mean this book does not dance around the very real problems we as Believers face in a world full of sin. 

The way each of us grows up in Christ is through adversity and pain. That's a tough thing to swallow sometimes, but in her book The Hardest Peace, Kara talks about how through hardship we are drawn ever closer and closer to the cross and our Lord and Savior.

This book will move you, most likely to tears, but hopefully to look at the hard things you face in a new way. There are raw emotions shared, painful things shared and all with the hop of the reader learning to find peace in and through hard times. You may even say Bring on the harder hard by the time you are done reading!

This really is an exceptional book!

About the Book:
A young mother battling cancer invites readers to embrace grace in every season of life. Kara Tippetts knows the mundane but rich days of mothering four kids, the joy of watching her children grow.and the devastating reality of stage-four cancer. In The Hardest Peace, she invites readers to see the grace of the everyday in all seasons of life and to live well even when the living is hard. As the thousands of readers of her blog know, Tippetts explores the hardest questions of life with rare beauty and honesty. Most of all, she draws them back to the God who is present, in the ordinary and the suffering, and shapes every life into the best story of all.

Learn more and purchase a copy at Kara’s website, Mundane Faithfulness.

About the Author:
Kara Tippetts and her husband, Jason, have four children and lead a church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cancer is only part of Kara's story. Her real fight is to truly live while facing a crushing reality. 

Find Kara online: website, Facebook, Twitter

I received a copy of the book for the purpose of review. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions expressed are my own.

$150 Visa Gift Card Giveaway


 Before BeyoncĂ© and before Rihanna, self-proclaimed “street but sweet” Aaliyah was poised to become a global icon with top-selling albums, a hot movie career and an adoring fan base. The film follows the beautiful and talented performer’s inspirational journey, from her debut on “Star Search” at the age of ten to the challenges she faced during her rise to become the Princess of R&B.

On August 25, 2001, at the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer and some of her video crew crashed after takeoff from a Bahamian runway. Although just 22-years-old at the time of her death, Aaliyah continues to lead a legacy as Billboard’s tenth most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years and one of the recording industry’s most successful artists in history.

Lifetime’s Original Movie, “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B,” starring Alexandra Shipp (“House of Anubis”) as the beloved actress and music sensation, is set to premiere Saturday, November 15, at 8pm ET/PT. The two-hour movie event is executive produced by Howard Braunstein, Debra Martin Chase and Wendy Williams, and based on the bestseller “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman” by former Time Magazine music editor Christopher John Farley (Game World).


Enter for your chance to win a $150 Visa Gift Card which you can use to purchase snacks and other goodies to enjoy while you watch Aaliyah, The Princess of R&B on Lifetime Nov 15th at 8pm ET/PT. I think everyone could use an extra $150!!
