SlimKicker & a giveaway

A while back I wrote about my bad habit of eating candy.  I said I would stop cold turkey.  A couple weeks later I talked about making healthy decisions and how I was going to give myself a little pat on the back for choosing the healthy route.

Well the healthy choices are going really well and so is my acknowledgement of them but the candy? I might need a little more help with that.

Someone out there in the universe knew this because I recently got an email from Sue over at SlimKicker!

SlimKicker is a calorie counter and game that helps motivate you to stay healthy. It turns your diet and fitness goals into a level-up game with points, rewards and challenges.  You level up by tracking healthy calories and exercises, and completing challenges such as quitting soda for a week.  They also have healthy recipe suggestions on their recipe section and on Pinterest.

I’m not one to count calories because it just didn’t work for me and I already track my marathon training but you know I LOVE a good game! I signed up with SlimKicker and started my own 7 day ‘No Eating Candy’ challenge. After the first week I hope to restart the challenge with two weeks, three weeks and then up to a month.  After over two months of challenges (added up) and daily check-ins to the app, I should have a new healthy habit on my hands and lots of points under my belt.

I just think this is such a great idea.  Everyone loves a good game and we all have little habits that we might want to improve!

Now you get to participate!

I’ve teamed up with SlimKicker to give you a change to win this snazzy Slow Cooker.  You could make so many healthy recipes in this baby!

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment with a fun, creative fitness or diet challenge. One or two sentences is fine. SlimKicker will then pick their favorite and I’ll announce the winner in about a week!

Good luck and have a great weekend!


Please note, this giveaway is limited to only readers in the USA.

    Sweet! No candy so far today. 🙂

  3. Shannon says:

    I signed up, too! My new incentive for myself: If I work out at least 5 days a week for the four weeks, I am buying myself a head-to-toe new work out, outfit, sports bra, pants, top, shoes, socks (even undies)!

    OH GOODNESS…I absolutely LOVE your blog title —-(and the content for that matter:) I just stumbled upon it. Looking forward to reading more!

  5. I’m not sure how it relates to fitness/diet, but I would really like to turn OFF the TV and focus more on improving myself. Cooking, improving my Spanish, and maybe even writing more. If I spend at least an hour every night doing something other than watching TV, I’ll let myself buy a new, pretty sundress and wear it for the rest of summer! 🙂

    My challenge idea is to slow down while you exercise. Lots of people just rush thru their workout without actually focusing and concentrating on the movements.

  8. This one probably sounds dumb, but I’m trying to walk around anytime I’m on the phone. I talked to my dad today and I walked up and down the stairs to get in some extra exercise! (And when I was on the phone with lindsay, I paced around the house! haha)
