There is nothing worse than sitting around and thinking about how tough things are and how slowly time is passing you by. Sometimes people just need some motivation to get up and get out of their funk. This is the reason for the Box of Motivation.
My husband is always talking about how he wants to get into better shape and be healthier. Well I felt like this was the perfect opportunity. There is no better time to change some habits than when you have nothing to do and when you are forced to eat disgusting deployment food.

Protein Shake Pouches
My husbands favorite protein shakes are GNC Lean Shakes. They have 25 grams of high quality protein. The thing I like about the Lean Shakes is that they come in individual packages which makes it easy for my husband to mix. He as doesn’t have to worry about measuring out protein powder because each portion is already measured for him.
My husbands favorite Protein Bars are Cliff Bars. Builder Bars 20g of protein, vitamins and minerals, and carbohydrates for sustained energy. They never contain artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols or trans fats. I don’t eat these bars because they are not gluten free, but if I can get my husband to eat something healthier that is a bonus.
The Blender Bottle is my favorite way to mix up sports drinks. The stainless steel BlenderBall whips around inside the bottle, mixing your drinks to a smooth consistency, every time. All the bottles are BPA free and Odor resistant. Every once in awhile, you just a replacement. I bought my husband the new Sports Mix Blender Bottle, Its sleek new design allows it to function as a water bottle as well. I also came across GoStaks. GoStaks are durable jars that secure tightly together to carry powders, vitamins, supplements, snacks, and more.
I personally do not use fat burners in my own health care regimen, however, my husband uses Cellucor’s fat burner to help him feel full and energized. Knowing that he likes this particular fat burner, I included it in this package.
I included a handwritten letter to my hubby trying to encourage him to make the most of this situation. I also tried to encourage him to stay busy so that time passed by faster.
