It’s that time of year that we all want to get fit. I know I do. I have been marching place watching TV, doing my sit-ups trying to walk more and eating better. I lost control the past month or so and I want to get back on track. After all, summer is coming and I want to look half way decent in my summer shorts and tank tops. I won’t get into bathing suits because Ugh… I don’t even want to go there. So today I have a giveaway that will help you on your journey for your fitness. Matter in fact this giveaway is amazing! It is full of fabulous goodies and I can’t wait to share it with you.

If you haven’t you should give them a try! They a healthy little snack.

I joined the YMCA in my neighborhood and started going every weekend!
I signed up for a spring marathon so I’ve pretty much been running…Might I say this winter has been HORRIBLE!
Christel Goetsch says
Coming off of an especially cold Michigan winter, I love spring and the renewed hope and feeling of a fresh start that it brings! I am going to clean up my eating (again!!) and try a new recipe at least once a week. I also want to get back outside and take my yellow lab, Sophie, back on her daily walks–great for both of us!
Betty D (@bettycd) says
As the grocery shopper, every unhealthy snack in the house is here because I bought it … often at a great price w/coupon. If I purchase healthy fruit and veggies, healthy cereals and healthier and fewer bread choices … it isn’t rocket science that the family eats better. The carbs, sugars, sodium and calories are better
I did my first round of the 21 Day Fix this month! It has certainly kicked my butt back into gear 🙂
I have been watching what I eat and on the treadmill as much as possible. waiting for warmer weather to get outside with the dog.
karrie shannon says
Oh, I’m obsessed with Beachbody On Demand and I’ve incorporated the 21 day Fix eating plan into my life and that my family. We’re all much more energetic and we’ve gotten pretty as a bonus!
I am a daily morning jogger and I try to do other things throughout the day to keep active (like crunches on the floor while my children are playing). I’ve also recently started eating a lot better, eliminating processed foods and am feeling great!
Lisa Jensen says
Taking the stairs at work.
Unfortunately I am recovering from a bad case of epichondylitis so I am focusing on cardio, cardio, cardio while I let my upper body heal! Can’t wait to feel better and get back to toning my upper body!
Michelle B says
I’ve started doing the 21 day fix videos.

Marsha A. says
Started training with my son. He is a certified personal trainer and he is kicking my butt.
I have given up white… as in white sugar, flour, rice, potatoes, bread, etc. Hasn’t been easy and I have to read every label. Bread is the worst, because, well I love bread. I also joined the gym and I attend four days a week. To date I have lost 5 pounds and lowered my blood pressure. I also am training for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, it is in July in San Francisco. I would love it if you want to join me.
Becca Z says
Lots and lots of You Tube videos…6 days a week, and no repeats so my body and muscles don’t get used to something. It has been fun and I have found some fabulous trainers to follow.
Savannah G says
I meal prep on Sundays! I’ve also started a 12 week workout program with my two sisters. I finish next Friday!
We walk 1-1 1/2 hours 3-4 times a week.

Cutting back the calories and increasing exercise time
Angie Jerde says
I am a frequent Jazzerciser and have been trying to expand my exercise and try new to me classes (core and strength, cardio drumming). I also just completed my first body transformation challenge and loved seeing my results! As far as food, I have been incorporating more protein and maintaining my healthy diet. Thanks for this-what a fun giveaway 🙂

Darlene Poalillo says
I have been walking longer distances with our two dogs.
Debbie Thomas says
I added a personal size elliptical machine to my office to use when I’m on conference calls and bought a Jawbone UP to track my steps. Didn’t realize how inactive I really was.

Now that the weather is breaking and I can see the sidewalks again I am off to my running routine with a bike ride in the evenings
Shari Blevings says
The elliptical 5 days a week for 1 hour, planks, and weight training. It feels so good. And good for me.
Mary golab says
I started by making a goal of getting my gut healthy. Finding out about multiple food intolerances made me feel angry and different. But by finally coming to the realization that I needed to take charge things started to change. After making the right food changes I slowly started to add exercise and then light resistance. Now almost 20 pounds lighter and feeling better than I have in a very long time (I still faulter) I realized I am on the road to a healthier version of me.
I’m buying more fruits and vegetables and taking a daily walk too.

I’m afraid I haven’t started doing any exercising yet this year. I have started eating healthier – a lot of fruits & vegetables and holding back on sweets and breads (well trying to). As soon as the weather breaks I plan on walking.
Katy Glynn says
I started playing sports again and have been doing two a days at the gym!
Kari F says
I have a gym membership and I usually do my own thing at the gym, but since the New Year, I have been trying some of the group exercise classes to mix up my routine. It has been great!
Deb Holtschlag says
Our Y has a Live Strong Fitness Program that started in January and I joined. We meet twice a week for all different kinds of exercise: yoga, weights, cardio, balance training, etc. Tonight we are doing Jazzercise, I can hardly wait. The program is to get cancer survivors back into exercising and find something we really love and will want to do for the rest of our lives. I am a breast cancer survivor and am really enjoying getting my strength and confidence back again.
MJ Moore (@butterflyrouge) says

I have been going to the gym and drinking water.
I’ve been working out at the gym 5 days a week (2-HIIT style classes, Bodycombat, swimming, and weights). And I’ve been making better choices with food and movement. Trying to make this different this time and not yo-yo again.
