Another thing I found in the Holiday Voxbox I received complimentary from Influenster was Eboost. I decided to have it hot like tea and it was delicious! I had been so cold and tired and it was great hot like that. I especially loved the fact that it makes 12 oz so it isn’t just a small shot. It is something I can sip on for a while in my huge red cup. It would also be good in cold water with a little ice! It isn’t too sweet like a lot of drink mixes like this are. They use Stevia to sweeten it which is what I normally use. I didn’t feel a huge or sudden surge of energy but I had been feeling really tired and rundown all day so it was great to feel normal for a while so I could get some things done. I think this product would be a great thing for me especially because of my health problems. I have fibromyalgia and a weakened immune system which causes me to get sick easily. This has a lot of vitamins so that is a “boost” I could really use and I don’t have to worry about crashing later. It is a natural boost which would probably be even more effective with continual use.
I’m going to use it to help me with my weight loss. After being down for so long with chronic pain I have weak muscles where most people don’t even realize they even have muscles. Exercising hurts and really drains me. I’m going to use Eboost to help with my energy level and start off slow 10 minutes a day and work up from there. I made a fitness board on Pinterest featuring Eboost along with some other things I’m going to try this year.
Of course I couldn’t have gotten a better flavor. I got Acai/Pomegranate and I love Pomegranate! All the flavors sound good though. There’s also Orange, Pink lemonade & Super Berry. I really want to try the Super Berry since I love berries. Click here to read supplement facts for the different flavors. While I was at their website ( www.eboost.com ) I was able to enter my email in a box that popped up to receive a coupon for a future purchase and they said if you follow them on facebook you can get a free sample the next time they have a giveaway.
I found Eboost on Amazon.com with free supersaver shipping but I’m hoping I’ll see it in the local stores here. You can also order it from their website and they have free shipping right now in the continental US. You can read reviews here on influenster’s website. They sent these boxes out to several people around the US as a complimentary gift for testing purposes. That is what I did. After we test a product we go write a review and tell them whether we liked it or not so much. So check it out and see what other people thought of Eboost.
I got the Peach Almond in my Holiday VoxBox from Influenster and decided to try it this morning.
I really don’t like oatmeal because my mom used to cook the heck out of it. When she was done with it you could turn the pot upside down and make a pot shaped jello mold of gray matter. It didn’t matter what it tasted like because it was so slimy it resembled a science experiment that got left in the frig until it grew eyeballs. I have not eaten oatmeal since I’ve been an adult and free to make my own choice on what NOT to eat.
This, however, smelled really good even through the packaging. I love peaches and almonds! So I decided to add less water so it would be more firm. It is impossible to describe how good this is. It tasted like heaven. The peaches were real chunks of peaches… not just artificially flavored pieces of who knows what. The pieces of almonds were small but added great flavor. I cannot wait to try some of the other flavors. There’s also Apple Walnut, Summer Berry & Cherry Pistachio.
I love apple anything but unfortunately I’m allergic to walnuts so I wont be able to try that one. The others sound really good though especially the Cherry Pistachio! I am definitely going to get more of these.
My house still smells like peaches and I’m loving it. I see that is available on Amazon.com but I’m hoping I can find it locally and on sale. The card in my package says these are about $1.79 each. I think that is not bad for a good healthy breakfast that tastes great and is easy to prepare but I am always looking to save money any way possible.
I’m also going to recycle the plastic container for planting this spring. It is the perfect size to move seedlings into to allow them more room to grow before moving to the garden. Too bad the container isn’t biodegradable material but then maybe it wouldn’t be suitable for making oatmeal in. The lid will help to catch water on the bottom. I added a small piece of tape to cover the steam holes in the lid but it wont last long since it is cardboard. Only the ring is plastic.

Well I finally got my Holiday Voxbox from Influenster and I couldn’t wait to open it! I made a video so you can see what was in the box. All of these items were complimentary gifts for testing purposes from Influenster.
You can also check out the items on my pinterest board which I’ll be updating later with my reviews.
These are the items that were in the box
As I try out and blog about each item I will link the new posts to the item in the list above.
So far the only thing I have tried is the Eboost. I decided to have it hot like tea and it was delicious! I especially loved the fact that it makes 12 oz so it isn’t just a small shot. It is something I can sip on for a while. It would also be good in cold water with a little ice! It also isn’t too sweet.

This has a lot of vitamins so that is a “boost” I could really use and I don’t have to worry about crashing later. It is a natural boost which would probably be more evident after continual use.
Of course I couldn’t have gotten a better flavor. I got Acai/Pomegranate and I love Pomegranate! All the flavors sound good though. There’s also Orange, Pink lemonade & Super Berry. I really want to try the Super Berry.

Sometimes I have pain days. Sometimes they keep coming and it gets to be too much. I called my doctor’s office and they got me an appointment for tomorrow morning. Hopefully they can give me something that will help.
I found some great quotes on Pinterest.
Merryweather: Sweet princess, if through this wicked witch’s trick, a spindle should your finger prick… a ray of hope there still may be in this, the gift I give to thee. Not in death, but just in sleep, the fateful prophecy you’ll keep. And from this slumber you shall wake, when true love’s kiss, the spell shall break.
My prince kissed me so I can finally stay awake. I slept so long and finally woke up and felt like doing something. I got my book in the mail that I ordered from Handy Hands Tatting. It is called, Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. I have been salivating over this book for a long time but $60 is a lot of money to spend on a book. That is the cheapest you can get this book new. Finally, my “prince” said I could order it and I have it my grubby little hands. I’m like a little girl in a candy store looking at these glossy pages of beautiful tatting patterns. I’ll be making so many wonderful tatted treasures now.
I just updated my paged called “Twenty Wishes“. When I read the book by Debbie Macomber called Twenty Wishes I decided to make my own list too. I don’t quit have twenty yet but I’m working on it. I have fulfilled one wish so far. I really love how this list keeps me thinking positive and thinking about the future and all that I can do. My life isn’t over, it is just getting started!
