You guys know how I’m giving it my all to get healthier. It’s on my life list and while “get healthy” is vague, I do have some very specific goals that apply to my life right now that I’m working on.
I recently finished a two-day a week boot camp for a month and now I’m getting ready to start a month of Jazzersize (thanks to a deal on Groupon!) Plus – my husband and I are making efforts to eat better and embrace an overall healthier lifestyle and I’ve got the support of friends who will help me “go the distance”.
But it’s not easy, ya’ll. To change habits you need all the help you can get. And you need support from others to cheer you on (even if you don’t know them).
That’s why when I heard that H-E-B was hosting a Slim Down Challenge for 25 competitors from across Texas, I wanted to get the word out.
H-E-B’s 16-week challenge is designed to provide contestants with the education and tools they need to live a healthier lifestyle and the chance to win a $10,000 grand prize or a $5,000 “fan favorite” prize.
Seriously, you have to watch this video.
The Showdown is part of “Healthy at H-E-B,” a comprehensive, long-term commitment to improve the health of Texans and provide them with fresh, healthy food that is affordable and easy to prepare. On there website you can find ways to eat better, move more and live well including healthful recipes and information on proper nutrition and work out plans that work for you.
I’m proud of H-E-B and the contestants for making a commitment to good health.
The competition has been going on for a couple of weeks now and you can follow the journeys of all of the participants here. I can’t wait to see who wins. But you know, really – everyone involved is a winner…EVEN YOU!
That’s right, H-E-B knows how I love to give away free stuff to Still Living The Dream readers, so they are providing one person a $25 H-E-B gift card!
