Yay for a Give Away!!

Recently, I have started using SlimKicker.com for my food and exercise log.  It has been awesome, especially because it appeals to my highly competitive nature (who of you guys would have guessed?!).

The site works as a food log just like other sites and apps, but heres the kicker (I’m so funny sometimes), there is a competition component to it.  This site gives you various challenges you sign up for and earn points.  You also get points for logging exercise, food, etc.  You can get friends on it and compete against one another to give you the extra edge to get ready for the upcoming bathing suit season.

SlimKicker also has lots of promo codes for health-related retailers such as Bowflex and many others.

They have also offered to give away this awesome slow cooker to whoever can come up with the best new challenge idea!!  Everyone loves a great cooker for soups, chili (on cold days like today), over night oatmeals, etc.

Ex: 20 push ups/day for 1 week

So I urge you to leave your awesome idea as a comment.  SlimKicker will chose their favorite idea at the end of one week and the brains behind it will win the slow cooker!!  GOOD LUCK!!  (SlimKicker has asked that entries be limited to those from the USA, if you are from outside the states, stay tuned for future give away opportunities).

Note: I do not work for and/or have received any incentives for providing this information and/or including their giveaway on my blog.  My opinions state above are completely my own.

  2. What about a meditation challenge? I know it’s not exactly fitness related, but mental health is important too and I find it’s often what people struggle with the most. We are so busy in our day to day lives rushing around from work, school, working out, etc. we often forget to take a few minutes to just be still with ourselves and reflect. My suggested challenge would be a month of meditation, even if it’s just 5 minutes a day.

  3. A meditation challenge sounds like a good idea.. Let’s see.. how about a challenge to take a deep breath before responding emotionally to relieve stress? Sometimes we impulsively respond to things around us, whether it’s eating emotionally, or yelling at someone, or just acting over stressed…

    • This is a fantastic idea. I used to really have a problem with “eating to solve my problems!” Getting control of that helped me so much but I never thought of that for a challenge. Thats awesome!

  5. How about eating soup everyday for a week or two? Many soups are loaded with veggies! All soups have a high water content so they’ll fill you up & make you less likely to splurge afterward. Soup is easy to make (nothing better than dumping ingredients in the slow cooker, then just like magic dinner’s ready) plus you can freeze the leftovers. Even if you are lazy, you can keep a stash of microwavable healthy soups in the pantry & grab one on the way out the door in the morning & still have a healthy lunch!

    • Love it!! I Love soup, and you can make cold soups too for summer that are great as well. I have never made them myself but my old restaurant did, I will have to try a recipe and let you know. Or you can google gazpacho if you want to try to find some (some even have fruit!!)

  6. I don’t drink enough fluids throughout the day, nonetheless, the most important-WATER! I would love to drink more water per week. I want to find a container that is like a Tervis Tumbler (clear) and write on the side the number of ounces I drink (kinda like a measuring cup) and on the side of it, have a dry erase tally of how many I have drink throughout the day. Also, I need a straw because I rarely drink anything if it doesn’t have a straw! (I’m such a little kid!!)

    I put a website link below to calculate your recommended water intake according to body weight, exercise, and climate. So my goal is 69 oz=8.5 glasses of water. READY…DRINK!!

  7. My challenge would motivate people to be more active at work. For some people this is not an issue, but for me it definitely is. On a normal day at work, I sit in a cubicle working at a computer for about 9 hours. Usually the only exercise I get in this time is going up a flight of stairs in the morning and back down in the afternoon. I would suggest taking a break every hour or two to walk up and down the stairs a few times or maybe just a couple of laps around the building if stairs are not available. I think this would help the body and the mind.
