A New Year, A Healthier You

Did you make any resolutions for 2014? Most people make a few, and by the time January is over, so are the promises of losing weight, eating healthy, and spending less money. That's why I don't really believe in resolutions... because I know they can be so hard to keep!

A few months ago, before I started practicing for Dancing With The Stars for Easter Seals, I started working out and eating better. No more crash diets. No more eliminating the foods I love, like bread. (Life without carbs is not worth it, guys!) And you know what? By eating sensibly and working out, I managed to lose a lot of weight, and I've never felt better. According to a recent survey done by Kellogg's, 97% of Canadians agree that a positive attitude can help them achieve their goals. I think this is so totally accurate. Seeing the glass half-full is always better than the alternative, and doing the things you love, and staying busy, are really motivating. So is being a parent, because there is no down time!

To ring in the new year, my friends at Special K wants to encourage a positive attitude and outlook when it comes to managing weight by offering one of my lucky readers a Special K Positivity Prize Pack, which includes:
  • A generous supply of Special K products
  • A New Balance fitness monitor watch to help track your progress
  • A yoga mat
  • A copy of the book Everything Is Going To Be Okay
  • Customizable meal plans and weight management tips
This is the package of goodies I'm giving away:


Eating healthy for me begins in the morning, and often my breakfast is a bowl of cereal and some fruit. Kellogg's is almost always a part of my day and helps keep me on the right track when it comes to staying healthy.

To enter this giveaway, leave me a comment below telling me what you're doing in 2014 to stay healthy.

I will be doing the same as what I always do. Drink lots of water, eat lots of fresh product, cook from scratch, limit the amount of processed foods I eat, and walk as much as I can. I plan on reading more to keep my mind healthy too :)
