Sponsored: Ensure Celebrates “Can Do People”

I’m a sponsored blog partner of Ensure but all opinions contained in this post are my own.

Hey everyone! Today’s post is about Ensure Active Protein Shakes.  Yes, you see that and I don’t want you to stop reading because you think you are too young or too fit or too healthy for it.  Ensure isn’t limited to the stuff they give you when you are hospitalized anymore, in fact it really never has been. Ensure is about people who are out there getting it – active, healthy people!

I think people who are already healthy understand that our nutrition has a lot to do with our physical abilities. In order to have the strength and abilities that we so desire, we need to pay attention to what’s going into our bodies.  Throughout my fitness journey, I’ve seen the results of proper nutrition in my life versus not so proper nutrition and it’s been an eye opener.

While most of you know my story, I will do another post soon about my own “Can Do” story. From auto accident and not walking, to running 14 half marathons in 2014, and now trying to stay healthy and keep moving forward with running, boot camp, cycling, etc.  I have found that proper nutrition, including Ensure, has given me the strength and energy to continue being me and doing the things I love.

I’ll be honest – I didn’t know about Ensure’s High Protein 16g of protein and 160 calories along with all the vitamins and minerals. When I opened the package and read the bottle, I was actually very surprised, and I think a lot of my friends would be too.  Sometimes when I’m making a protein shake in the blender, I find myself adding to many “taste good” kinds of fruit and then it ends up being unhealthy.  This bottle pops right in the refrigerator, and then I can pull it out and enjoy it! The vanilla was awesome too, and I’m glad that’s the flavor I picked!

Thanks to this awesome campaign, I get to share about others who are of the “Can Do” mentality and are out there in our everyday lives.  People you don’t know about if you aren’t reading about it.  Today I’m going to share with you about Bill Baker who is a police chief in the town of Foxboro.  He has four children and two grandchildren. This guy has had more surgeries than me – his knees, arms, shoulder and back – and his attitude is to live the best days of his life NOW!

Bill is out there, moving, enjoying life, his family.  He’s that Can Do person he has always been and he gives a lot of the credit to Ensure Protein Shakes by Abbott Nutrition.  Watch Bill’s story here:
