POWERADE PLAY

*** CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED***

StephanieC please contact me so we can get you your prize!!

Thanks to all of you who participated, stay tuned for what we have in store.



I was given POWERADE PLAY to try in my own home, and was paid for my time to write the review. I was not paid to write a positive review and all thoughts written below were my own.

In the spring we have baseball games three times a week, and in the fall there will be football games. I become chauffeur, cheer captain, assistant coach, personal trainer, and which ever other hat I must wear to keep our kids together. I find my days filled with driving the kids to games, yelling from the bleachers, coaching from the sidelines, batting practice in the back yard, and organizer extraordinaire to keep it all together. The calendar on my phone becomes my life line telling me when the next game or practice is.


One of the things I love about the boys is that they are so active, I am so glad they have inherited my love for sports and the outdoors. As busy as we are; we often times spend more time at the ball park than at home these days. I wouldn’t change it for the world. I think I am giving them a good starting point to lead healthy fit lives as they grow.

I am sure it comes to no surprise of my regular readers that we are one busy family. As a mother of three kids I try to keep our schedules full of fun activities and healthy snacks. I jumped at the chance when I was asked to review POWERADE’s new drink POWERADE PLAY.

POWERADE has a new sports drink for young athletes called PLAY. With just 60 calories per 12 fluid ounce bottle, it has 25% less sugar than traditional sports drinks. It is enhanced with 100% of the Daily Value (DV) of Vitamin C and 20% DV Zinc to help support a healthy immune system and also has 20% of the DV of Vitamins B3, B5, B6 and B12.

Really? Low sugar, extra vitamins, and electrolytes? Could it be good enough to be real? The kicker is, will the boys drink it?

You see I have kids that add sugar to everything from cereal to lemonade. So I will say I was a bit skeptical, low sugar and my two boys just usually don’t mix. Oh, was I surprised!! Jay’s exact words were “I love it!! I think I will marry it.” I am most certain that in ten years he will have changed his mind, never the less; he and his brother enjoy it. I would also have to say that I too enjoyed the drink. Friday is our snack day for baseball and I think we have found a new drink to provide the kids.

To enter the giveaway for a $125 Visa gift card, comment on this entry and tell me how you motivate your kids to get up and move or do they motivate you to get moving. What sports are our kids involved in, how to you manage to keep all the game and practice times straight? Tell me the norm for your family.

  1. My boys are 5 & 7 and they do gymnastics and swimming right now. We tried t-ball but they didn't like it that much. We're thinking about starting karate and junior golf.

  5. I am a mommy of one boisterous 10 year old little girl. She does gymnastics, is in the REACT club ( thats a club at schools that do various volunteer work)She is on the school newspaper too.We frequently rollerblade together in our local park and do some fishing at least once a week.

    Between school clubs and getting good old fashioned fresh air and excersise, I sometimes feel like I havent a time for a breathe. She keeps me motivated by seeing the joy in her little face, and knowing the bond we are creating when we do these activities as a family

    How do I manage it all, its called being a mommy, its hard but very rewarding
    and in the end its all worth it :)

  6. I am the Mom of two sons, ages 21 and 17. They are both very active and enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities. My oldest son just got on his road bike to ride 35 miles! We all take a walk every evening, even the dog.

  8. When my boys were growing up, they played soccer and played outside with the neighborhood kids. They loved running around and "exploring".

    ReplyDelete
  9. I have no problem getting my kids up and out. Instead, they're always dragging me to the things they love! My son can regularly be found sitting in the car waiting to go to polo practice. We're all outside as much as possible, which gets them used to the idea of finding their own fun.

    ReplyDelete
  10. My son and I have been having a lot of fun working in the yard and in the garden! That keeps us active. He's also taking swim lessons at the Y. My wife takes him to the lessons since it's during my work day.

  11. My boys motivate me to get moving because they are never still! My older son is involved in tball and soccer, so once in awhile practices can go back to back or overlap. It isn't too confusing for me yet, but I have a younger son, and when he starts playing too I will be so confused!

    ReplyDelete
  12. My child motivates me to get moving because we have fun when we do activities together and it makes us closer.

  18. They're pretty self-motivated when it comes to getting moving and help get mommy and daddy moving with family bike rides and dancing around the house. My kids play soccer and baseball and with 3 diff kids on 2 diff teams our Franklin Covey day planner is the best way to keep up with everyone's schedule.

  19. Busy seems like an understatement. And, here at the end of the school year, we go non stop!

    I am usually motivated to get up and going, and so are they...when the sun is up! We love to be outside!

  20. No children in organized sports. We like to go hiking a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Between the four kids they play football, field hockey, wrestling, baseball, lacrosse, and soccer. Another reason the less sugary drinks are good? Bees. When they are not on a field, they are outside! My calendar has no room on it!

  22. My neices and nephews are natural explorers, so we go to creek quite frequently and get dirty!

    ReplyDelete
  23. My kids have played baseball and soccer, T-ball and football. Add karate, bowling, and swimming, and we have plenty of activity to keep us all going. I don't like them (or me) overscheduled, so organized sports don't take over our dinner hour and our family life. Our favorite physical activity? Walking together. We can do that any old time, and that works best for all.

  34. With summer coming, we swim at papaw's and ride bikes...and just generally run around like fools...what else is new? I think the kids motivate me more than I motivate them though. They have more energy than they know what to do with.

    ReplyDelete
  35. They don't need any motivation to move..they start when they wake up and don't quit until they pass out at night! We'll be doing swimming lessons this summer...

  39. I don't have children, but I do have an active and busy life. Too busy to find the time or energy to exercise like I should, so to stay motivated I try to do things like leisurely walking or taking the stairs instead of elevator when I'm too tired or have no time to exercise.

    ReplyDelete
  40. We follow hockey, soccer, and cross country schedules. We try to go to as much as we can (College D3 sports are all over the place). They love it when we come watch, and so do we!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, that's the question, isn't it? Right now 4 of my 5 kids are on softball or baseball teams. One of them just finished the soccer season. Another one is in a play (with me, her mom!) I have a BIG calendar where I keep all the schedules, and I recently started using Google calendar to try to help me be more organized. I couldn't do it alone. They all have at least one friend on the team so that we can carpool. Sometimes there are three games at the same time, so there is really NO way I could get them there myself. I rely on my friends to help carpool, and I help them out, as well. It's a busy summer, but we certainly have fun.

  42. They're motivated by the prospect of fun. And pretty much every activity can be made fun - minus manual labor. They don't want anything to do with that. So we love to go hiking, canoeing, mud running, or just biking down the beautiful rail-to-trail nearby. We also spend a lot of our days off at local farms, picking whatever may be in season - a great physical exercise, but you also get cheap, fresh, healthy food you can then take home and prepare. Simple outdoor games are always fun, too: Tag, baseball, and the local favorite, cornhole!

    Thank you for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm trying to exercise more, and what motivates me is thinking about how good I'll feel once I'm done (even if it doesn't feel that good during!). Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I keep my kids motivated by doing thingd they love. I get my kids to get active by doing stuff they love that is active such as swimming. We also go hiking. We encourage our kids to play outside. We got to the play ground. Their are many ways you can keep your kids activee.

  48. Our younger grandchildren spend some time with us in the summer. We take a walk first thing in the morning while it is cool. Grandpa takes the children to various playgrounds in our community and when it is really hot go to an airconditioned playground at our local fast food place. And we do simple things in our yard like blowing...and chasing...bubbles, playing with balls and soft frisbees to keep them active.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I motivate my daughter by just doing stuff with her like we go riding our bikes in the trails. I make it an adventure. She hasn't been in sports yet but has taking a liking to basketball and wants to try out this next school year.

  52. I don't have my own kids, but I work with the developmentally disabled population. I always give them a lot of positive feedback for learning new things and it works wonderfully! I've taught 2 of them basic computer skills, which was a great feeling for me and a step towards independence for them.

  54. I don't have any children but I can tell you my nieces and nephews motivate me to move. There is no sitting when you go to visit them, if it is nice we are outside and if it isn't nice enough for outside we are playing games inside.

    ReplyDelete
  55. We motivate each other to get active. To get the kids active, they are signed up for fun activites that they love to do (like softball, swimming, ballet, jazz dance, gymnastics, and ice skating) And to get me active, I make sure I get out and practice and play with them!

  60. My kids definitely motivate ME to get up and move because if EYE am moving, THEY are moving. They will play on their own, but not as hard as if I'm there kicking around the ball with them, or jumping on the trampoline with them. Our two-kid schedule includes horseback riding, soccer, swimming, ballet and trampoline, in addition to park play and random family games. I've tried to keep track with the schedule electronically, but PDA power just doesn't keep up. Time to turn back to old-school paper calendar to keep it all together (and handy)!

    ReplyDelete
  61. We are pretty busy...both boys are right now in baseball, then they will be going to summer camp in the mornings during the summer and swim lessons in the afternoon. In August, football starts. We try to get overwhelmed though. We have a wipe off calendar in the kitchen to keep track of practices, games, bday parties, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Real busy! We like powerade play's grape flavor.

    ReplyDelete
  63. My son motivates me - luckily for us both, he's always been very interested in bring active and he's always had a love of sports.

    To keep track of everything, I rely on my work calendar in Outlook - I load it up with all the games, important dates, etc. (even when his annual physical is due!) so I don't miss a thing.

  71. My son is still too young to get involved in sports. He's a super active kid, who wakes me up every morning and asks me to play outdoors with him. So I'd say he motivates me more than I do him.

  76. My kids are constantly playing outside with neighbors, running yard to yard, riding bikes, playing in their "clubhouse", scooters, you name it. The challenge for me is to make sure they take breaks, especially as the weather is getting hotter, so they can stay hydrated and give them snacks. Mostly for their health, but a lot for avoiding the complete meltdowns that happen if you do not keep them fed and hydrated!

    ReplyDelete
  77. LK is not currently involved in organized sports... soccer last fall, and registered for soccer camp again this summer. However, he loves to 'play' baseball, soccer, and football with us. That helps keep me motivated to "move" as it were - just to keep up with him. :) We would miss every appointment, game, party, etc if I did not write it all on the calendar.

    ReplyDelete
  78. My kids, too, add sugar to everything. I liked your review and plan to try Powerade. My boys love to play so little motivatation is needed to get up and go.

  82. We make a point to not participate in any competitive sporting but rather spend our time enjoying each other and the peace found in nature. One way my family stays active is to Eco-walk. We walk our neighborhood, local parks, and sometimes along country roads where its safe to walk, and pick up trash and recyclables. It makes for pretty strenuous physical work and also helps wildlife, the environment, and makes the areas we live and play in much prettier to look at!

  84. No sports lovers here, but my family has many gardens and there is nothing like getting your work out in the yard. Between weeding, mulching, dead-heading, harvesting, selling at the farmer's market, drying, canning, freezing, etc. we get all the exercise we need. When its really hot, we will take a dip in our swimming hole to cool off in-between fun chores!

    Getting them motivated is not hard..they have enough energy to go all day and night. My motivation comes from wanting to do things to keep them busy so they don't wrestle all the time and drive me nuts. LOL

  92. My three girls are definitely into sports...but not in the traditional way...they are very much girly girls! I am forever running to three different gymnastics classes, numerous dance classes, and my oldest just got involved with acting in plays. My kids always keep me motivated! Strangely (and gratefully), my girls have inexplicably always loved water and pure fruit juices. Now that they are getting a little older, I also allow them to drink occasional sports drinks as well.

    Thanks!

  94. We play softball every Sunday with all the neighborhood kids and families. My daughter is also in cheer leading, and we are always on the go finding something fun to do. Summer time brings a lot of swimming and parks! We make sure we go for a walk every night after dinner also (honestly, that's so the lovely carbs that I'm hooked to don't catch up with me!)

  101. My girls were always allowed one sport at a time- since they also did drama and other things- and how I kept it straight- I have no idea. Ian is heading down the same path.

  102. My kids are always on the go, I don't have any problem getting them motivated. My son swims, my daughter rides horses and they are always at the pool or the stable or outside playing. They motivate me to get up and get moving -- to go hiking with them and stuff like that. We don't overdo the number of sports though so we can keep it straight where we have to be :-)

  103. When I was a kid, we left the house right after breakfast and didn't come home until the street lights came on...now I motivate my daughter by dragging her out of bed in the morning and taking her to the pool for the day. Swimming is great exercise for both of us and I'm glad to see how she's grown as a swimmer..she's like a little fish!

    In the winter we are luck to have an indoor pool in our city and my daughter takes advantage of every open swim. We're also avid bowlers and try to head to the lanes every weekend for a few hours to practice our game. I do wish her school had more competitive sports offered and I'm looking forward to high school where she plans to join the swim team.

  109. My day today is a perfect example of how busy I am with my active kids. It was a half day for their final day of school for the year, so as a treat we went to the local park and sprinkler pool. My son had a little league baseball game at 5:30 so he had to be at the field at 5:00. My two daughters had a t-ball game on the other side of town at 6:00, and had to be there at 5:30 for pictures. My husband goes with the girls because he is the assistant coach, and I go with my son...We finally reunite after the games around 8 pm!!! The things we do for our children. AND I have one more little boy on the way!!!!
    I think the fact that my husband and I were both athletic as youth motivates our children to be involved in sports as well.

  110. I go by the rule "an object in motion stays in motion." I just try to stay in motion!
