Total Basset Case: Fit and Happy

Fit and Happy

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #TENways

We all know that I love a good workout and that I also love to eat and drink almost as much as a  good sweat session.
Now that it's officially (finally!) spring, we know summer is right around the corner.  There is no time like the present to get into shape for swimsuit season and really think about what we are snacking on and putting in our bodies.
So when I find something that I can enjoy that isn't going to ruin the workout I just cranked out and is full of flavor, I am one happy camper.  And must share it with you!   

Thankfully, Dr Pepper Snapple Group has come out with four ten calorie drinks that are full of flavor and only 10 calories! 10! That's practically nothin!
My favorite is the Canada Dry TEN that I picked up recently while shopping at Walmart.
Other flavors include 7UP, Sunkist and A&W. 
You can pick up some of this deliciousness for yourself and be sure to use this coupon to get $0.50 the purchase of TWO 2 liter bottles or TWO 4 pack cans of 7UP TEN, CANADA DRY TEN, RC TEN or SUNKIST TEN soda.  Offer available until 4/17, while supplies last.

And with this warm weather I love to grab a few girlfriends and take our work outs outside.  Whether that is doing speed work at the track, walks around the neighborhood with the dogs, or a quick few miles on the trails; a snack and mini picnic is always in order after a good calorie burning session.

Generally about half way through these workouts I start thinking about what that snack is going to be.  Because I am sweating it out, I am already in the mindset of choosing something healthy.  I do my best to reach for snacks/drinks that aren't going to totally undo what I've just done but that are also full of flavor.
One of my favorites snacks to fill up on fruit and a glass Canada Dry TEN- outside in the fresh air if possible.
Pretzels fulfill that need for a bit of salty to compliment the sweet of the fruit.  Perfect combo! 
Other favorites include : Greek yogurt, juices, shakes, almonds or natural peanut butter.  
I love that I can feel like I'm indulging in a drink but it's only 10 calories so I'm not feeling guilty about it! That's perfect in my book! 

And of course, my personal trainer is never far behind.  Especially when there are yummy snacks to be had swiped.

The ginger ale doesn't appeal to me but a 10 calorie sunkist sure does!! I'll be on the lookout for that! :)

Oh, this makes me dream of sitting outside with an ice cold drink and snacks! I love a low calorie drink that can drink a mass quantity of, since I have zero willpower sometimes with food and beverages;)

I have been using the Dr Pepper 10 Cal in my Spicy Dr Pepper Shredded Pork recipe I got from the Pioneer Woman. I think it tastes the same, and I'm saving some extra calories that make up for all of that brown sugar that's included in the recipe...ha!
