Fitness/Health Challenge Time! Leave a comment on my blog for a great idea, like “doing 20 pushups a day for 1 week”, or “squatting during commercials”. Your suggestion could be chosen by SlimKicker as the best idea posted here, and used on their site to promote health and fitness — and if it is, you’ll win* a free Hamilton-Beach Power Multi-Function Blender, courtesy of SlimKicker!
The contest is open for one week, starting Sunday, March 31 and closing on Saturday, April 6.
*Please note, the giveaway is limited to USA residents only.
Background: Why am I offering this contest?
In January 2012, I ordered myself some clothing in my normal, post-childbearing size and was shocked when it arrived and didn’t fit! I weighed nearly as much as I had while I was pregnant with my children, and this was disturbing.
Instead of sending the clothes back, I joined Weight Watchers, and over the course of four or five months, dropped 22 lbs. In the summer, I attempted to get back into yoga and tried running a few times, but I couldn’t keep the routine up. Then, this past Christmas, my husband bought me a 3-month gym membership, and it was great! I went frequently, felt empowered and strong, sweated almost every day for a week or two at a time. Terrific.
And then the gym closed.
And the winter was long.
Doughnuts are again my comfort food.
But no more!
I’ve found SlimKicker. It’s a lot of like Weight Watchers, but I like it better because it’s like a game. When I record my food and activity, I get points toward a reward I give myself. Achieving a challenge means levelling up. It’s really positive and empowering, and I’m feeling enthusiastic again about portioning and getting active. SlimKicker also has lots of coupon codes such as Bowflex promo codes.
So get in on this, folks! Let’s do some brainstorming on little ways that will make a big impact on being fit and healthy! I can’t wait to see who’ll be expecting a blender on their doorstep next month!
