Become Gurus {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I have a plan.  A plan to become a guru.  Not just any guru.  A weight guru.  Weight can be a very weighty issue.  See what I did there?  I’m glad that I can joke about this, because this is an issue that can get serious fast.  Especially after having a baby.  Don’t get me wrong.  I am taking this business of dropping some pounds seriously.  It’s just a good idea to be open to laughing at myself along the way.  In my opinion this makes the weight loss process easier.  It keeps me upbeat throughout the journey.  Join me, will you?

I’m 4 months postpartum and still working on losing those added pounds.  As in at least 30 lbs.  I have a ways to go.  But I know that I can accomplish the mission.  Who’s in?  To help me accomplish my goal I was sooooo happy to receive an email from the Weight Gurus.  It’s a sign.  They were totally sent my way for a reason.  They asked if I would review and giveaway one of their scales.  So  here’s the giveaway, some info about this great company, and then I’ll show you my results in a few weeks!

This company came up with an amazing concept.  They’ve created a way to help people track their weight in a whole new way.  You can track and record your measurements easily to an app on your smart phone.  Neat, right?  The Weight Gurus sent me this scale:

Top Reasons Why Weight Watchers is a Good Diet Choice

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Choosing the right weight loss program can be difficult and depends on your lifestyle, fitness levels and the types of foods you love to eat. Shedding a few pounds requires commitment and determination. One of the most popular weight loss plans is Weight Watchers that offers a wide variety of foods for a balanced way of eating. The top five reasons to choose WW are:

Reason # 1 – Ease in Following the Plan, Eating Any Foods

Sweet or healthy food

The Weight watchers plan is a rather easy plan to follow because it is not just a diet but learning a new way of eating. The premise is not to limit any type food or count calories but to determine a point’s value for all you eat. You can still eat your favorite foods and desserts, but learn to control portions and allow for the points. To be more successful, you may want to opt for higher fiber foods, leaner proteins plus fruits and vegetables. When starting the program, you are provided a point’s calculator that you can take with you anywhere you go to determine with ease what and how much to eat.

Reason #2 – Choice of Online or Local Memberships

You may choose to attend weekly meetings in your area, if that fits into your schedule, or join the online program if you lead a busy lifestyle. Either way, you get all the tools necessary to begin losing weight immediately; a list of the best food choices, a discreet weekly weigh-in, recipe ideas, coupons for weight watcher food choices and the encouragement and support of other members and staff. Going to a meeting near you may allow you more incentive because of the personal interaction with other members and the one-on-one encouragement received for each achievement of weight loss; but the choice is yours according to your needs and schedule.

Reason #3 – Affordable: Weight Watchers Promotions Throughout the Year

Promotion codes are published every month, bringing the cost down to $5 a week for Weight Watchers Online and $30 a month for Weight Watchers Monthly Pass. For promotional discounts look at:

Promotion codes are published every month, bringing the cost down to $5 a week for Weight Watchers Online and $30 a month for Weight Watchers Monthly Pass. For promotional discounts look at:

You can find sites with coupons for Weight Watchers if you search on Google for “Weight Watchers promotional codes.”

Reason #4 – Specialty Foods and Products

You are provided all the special products necessary in following the program, such as food diaries, points calculator, how to follow the plan, plus tips, recipes and more. If you choose to follow the plan on your own with tips from online, there are many available weight watchers products at your local grocery store. They may be labeled as weight watcher or smart one’s foods to include frozen meals and entrée’s, breakfast, snacks, cakes, desserts, candy and more. However, you don’t have to eat specialty foods to be successful.

Reason #5 – List of Zero Points Endless Foods

You never have to starve while on the WW program because there is a full listing of foods provided you that consist of zero points. You can eat as much as you like to feel satisfied. Typically, the foods on the zero points list consist of most fresh fruits and non-starchy vegetables. Enjoy and lose!

As mentioned previously, one of the best tools for success on weight watchers is the support and motivation gained from meeting leaders, WW staff and fellow members. This is the best way to guarantee you stay on track and achieve your goals.

Monti Found the Secret to a Healthy Life Through Nutrisystem

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Nutrisystem is one of the most popular weight loss plans, guaranteeing a permanent, healthy way of eating and living.  It is a learning experience on how to make healthier food choices for long-term results.  Once you place an order that meets your personal needs, you get full access to the Nutrisystem website that is full of tools to lead down the road to success.  You not only have access to a community of fellow members, you have a weight tracker, meal and menu ideas, tips on how to get discounts for subsequent orders, feedback on some of the best foods to order and personal customer service and support.  These were some of the amenities that lured Monti into giving Nutrisystem a try and change his life for the better.

Nutrisystem Review (1)

Monti Chose Nutrisystem For His Health

Monti was getting tired of feeling ill and fatigued.  At 5’8” and weighing 242 pounds, he was suffering with various medical issues, including (IBS) Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  He went on the Nutrisystem plan and stuck with it for six months with a weight loss of 50 pounds.   Taking the tools he learned on the program, Monti continued on his own, still losing weight and feeling great; no more ill feelings or IBS.  That was 20 years ago and to date, Monti is a healthy 169 pounds.  He states that weight loss was not always an easy road because he would gain a few pounds but he decided to re-join the Nutrisystem program temporarily to get back on track.  Monti did offer a few helpful tips; when having an occasional cocktail, use a diet drink as the mixer, eat smaller portions and have fresh fruits and cut up vegetables on hand at all times for those hungry urges.

 

Consider The Advantages and Disadvantages of Nutrisystem

If you are considering a weight loss success like that of Monti, look into the possible advantages and disadvantages of the Nutrisystem program.  What works for one person may not work for another.  Weight loss and your option to do so is a personal choice.  The advantages and pros of Nutrisystem are:

  • They offer you a variety of prepackaged foods geared towards your plan and needs. You can choose member favorites or customize your meals to your liking.
  • The plan is convenient without need to weigh and measure anything.  Just microwave or boil your meals as directed and serve with a choice of a side vegetable and/or fruit for a complete menu.
  • Most members love the personal customer service and support received at Nutrisystem. Counseling services are available 24/7 for true success when you need it.
  • You are provided a guide to appropriate exercise and physical fitness necessary for the best and optimum weight loss, designed to your needs.

Along with the pros or advantages, there are always a few disadvantages or cons to consider such as:

  • The cost is the biggest con for most people, especially those on a budget.  Although it may seem costly, go to http://www.weightlosstriumph.com/nutrisystem-healthy-meals-delivered-to-your-door.html to find various Nutrisystem discounts and coupons to help make the plan more affordable. Choosing auto-delivery is always a way to a lower cost plan as well.
  • Nutrisystem does not meet the needs of a family; if you are on the plan, you will have to still cook for your family, which is also additional cost; something to consider.
  • It may be difficult to maintain your new weight once you stop the program.  It is important to learn maintenance while on the program along with all the other tips you learned such as food choices and portion control.  This program is best used as a precursor to a new way of life, losing weight and gaining tools along the way that you can use when on your own.  Remember to gain the encouragement of friends and family for their support for long-term success.

BodyMedia {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Every January, I get the blues. I think it’s the post-holiday slump, coupled with “cold” weather (Southern California doesn’t really get that cold, I’ll admit) plus a few extra pounds put on from too many holiday goodies. At the beginning of this year I was really unhappy with the way I felt about my body, so I decided to make a change. I started exercising more, tracking my calories and trying to make better choices, and as a result I lost  almost 15 pounds in about 5 months. Those last few pounds are the hardest and I still fluctuate from day-to-day, but I have definitely maintained my 10 pound weight loss and am struggling to work off those last 3-5. There are many tools to help with weight loss and maintenance, but one tool that has been helpful is the BodyMedia FIT LINK Armband.

Compare

According to the BodyMedia website, “The BodyMedia system equips consumers with information they can use to make sweeping changes to their own health and wellness beginning with weight management” and “is proven to improve weight loss by 3 times versus behavioral support alone.” It also claims to be “the most accurate device in the market for measuring calorie burn.”

The BodyMedia FIT Armband is not just a pedometer, nor is it only a weight-loss tool, but it is a Fitness Tracker. It can help you set to goals to lose weight, maintain weight, or live a more active lifestyle without tracking your weight. BodyMedia’s armbands are the same bands used by the contestants on The Biggest Loser, so you know this is good technology! The armband features multiple sensors which monitor motion, steps, Galvanic skin response (how much you sweat), skin temperature and heat flux. All those sensors make it extremely reliable when it comes to an accurate count of your calories burned for the day. BodyMedia FIT makes the CORE Armband which can transmit your stats to an optional Display device, and the Wireless LINK Armband which connects to your mobile device via Bluetooth.

side by side

I was sent the LINK Armband to review.  The Armband is adjustable and straps to your arm with a velcro closure. It mostly stayed put, but would occasionally slide off during heavy physical activity or if it had gotten moved around somehow (my daughter was usually the cause of this). It’s small for a fitness tracker, but sometimes felt large and out-of-place on my arm, especially when I was dressed up at church or out with friends. But overall, it’s not bad.

me

The cool thing about the LINK is that you can download the free BodyMedia App on your smartphone and check your stats on the Activity Manager throughout the day. Definitely a cool feature, but because my phone is old and not very smart, I mostly relied on checking my stats at the end of the day, when the sensor was hooked up to the computer and was charging. I loved seeing how many calories I’d burned each day, even just from walking around. It was fascinating to see how many calories I burned on a Sunday, when all I did was walk around for a few hours, versus a Monday when I would run in the morning then go grocery shopping in the afternoon then play as a family that night. I kept it on at night so I could track my sleep, and it was really interesting to see how long it took me to fall asleep, or the times I would wake up in the middle of the night, though I had no record of being awake!  Both the CORE and LINK Armbands connect to various third-party apps for easier recording of workouts, goals and activities. Here’s what the Activity Manager page looks like:

screen

Overall, I liked the LINK Armband. It was helpful to see how hard I was working and to compare my days so I could work harder the next day. I had set a goal to lose 5 pounds in a month, and though I didn’t hit my goal, I do feel healthier and more in tune with my body. There are a ton of other cool features that I didn’t even get to use and don’t have time to mention, but it is safe to say that this Armband will help you to reach your fitness goals, whatever they may be. In order to access the online Activity Manager, you have to have a subscription, which is $6.95/month. However, a 3-month subscription is included with any purchase. The BodyMedia FIT Core Armband runs $119 and the LINK is $149, but if you buy right now, you can get 25% off! The BodyMedia FIT Armbands can be purchased online and at select retailers near you such as Target, Best Buy and Walgreens.  One lucky winner will receive a BodyMedia FIT LINK Armband for free!

EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Hey foodies!  We’re so excited to be a part of Measuring Flower‘s 2013 Savory Summer Giveaway Hop!  No, this kitchen scale is not edible, but it can measure anything and everything edible, so I say, hey, it should count.

Savory Summer

Our giveaway item here at Dandy Giveaway is sponsored by EatSmart, who carries some terrific kitchen scales, all designed to help you out in the kitchen while preparing dishes as well as effectively monitoring your food intake on (let’s face it) all of our quests to stay in shape.

Let me preface by saying that I’ve wanted one of these FOREVER!!  I’ve been telling my husband we needed one of these for the longest time, and when a reviewing opportunity came up, I emailed him at work immediately to share my excitement!

precision-pro-silver-1500

Here is the EatSmart™ Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale.  There really isn’t a better choice on the market.  This guy is so versatile and $25?  Shoot, son.  The glossy finish and vibrant red make it slick enough to leave out on the counter all the time, and it goes so well with my red kitchen decor :).

IMG_4283

Remember our molten chocolate lava cake addiction, and how we have to make them nearly every Sunday?  Ya, I’m trying to do the whole close-your-eyes-and-guess-which-one-is-heavier game to get an accurate 5.75 oz. of chocolate.  We’ve been melting down wafers, chips, and bars, pretty much anything chocolate in the house, to get our fix, and the guessing was getting ridiculously inaccurate.  Thank you EatSmart, for making this part of baking a whole lot easier and now just funnest game for me!
IMG_4288
This device couldn’t be easier to use.  It even COMES with batteries, which is rare and quite a pleasant surprise.  Put in the batteries, turn it on.  My favorite part is the tare feature, where you can set on your container (such as your heavy ceramic bowl), then press tare, and the scale goes down the 0.0 oz.  From there, add your food and you are only measuring your chocolate chips, instead of the chips and the bowl.  100% useful.  You eliminate the weight of the container, plate, bowl, etc.

Now here’s why my husband loves this.  Two words.  Pinewood Derby.  Nothin like taking the hassle out of hauling along the drill, the glue gun, and a jar of coins to the derby and frantically adding or subtracting weight minutes before the race begins.  And then think about mailing stuff!  Holy heck, I hate guessing!  I hate being unsure about postage, worrying about if I under-guess and it will be sent back to me, but I don’t want to overpay, and it really is just another hassle to get to the post office atleast every week.  I’m an eBay-er.  Don’t judge.
If these very strong reasons didn’t talk you into getting an EatSmart kitchen scale, I don’t know what will.  Next to my KitchenAid, this is my favorite kitchen gadget.  That’s saying something.

You can win your OWN!  One lucky duck will win the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale.

You can also buy it on Amazon for $25, and check out the other kitchen scales available at www.eatsmartproducts.com.

Wink Shapewear {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Stretch marks.  Weight gain.  Hair loss.  Incontinence.  Flabby belly skin.  The effects of pregnancy and childbirth.  My two pregnancies have left me with a gaping riff in my abdominals.  Its called diastasis.  My tummy muscles were stretched past capacity and they’ve torn apart and probably won’t be coming back together til I come up with the money for a Tummy Tuck, aka never.  Even though I am in the best shape of my life, and I’ve lost 25 pounds since college, weighing as much as I did in high school, my separated stomach muscles can’t hold anything in anymore and I look like I have a poochy fast food and milkshake belly.  So frustrating, right?  Do you have the same problem, dear moms out there?

 WINK LOGO

I think a lot of people are attracted to shapewear to hold in and smooth over extra body fat, but I also think shapewear is appealing to many of us mothers who lack the tight muscles that used to hold us together!  Wink Shapewear carries an exquisite line of top-quality shapewear.

“Wink is the only medical-grade system of postnatal recovery garments that help new moms get back into their fabulous shape after baby.”

And they have such a variety of options!  I think many of us have different troubles spots and different preferences about what we are comfortable wearing.  Personally, I’m not concerned about my thighs, so I don’t want full-body shapewear that is going to squeeze my legs.  I want to be able to wear my own bra, and I want something that will extend further than my waist so I don’t get the muffin top look.  I also prefer the hooks and eyes to elastic that can catch on other delicate fabric and avoid any totally embarrassing ripping noises!  Most importantly, I want shapewear that will stay up where I want it so I don’t have to worry about it sliding down throughout the day and having to do some strange pulling and tugging in public.  These preferences led me to the Ultimate Belly Blaster, and it is everything I hoped it would be!

FBIA_Beige1_v2_web-220x314 FBIA_Beige3_v2_web-100x150

It has silky smooth lines, and great compression.  The hooks and eyes on the side panel allow for four different levels of adjustment as you prefer a tighter or looser fit, and well as adjustable lengths with the shoulder straps.  There are two layers of high compression level material called Lycrosoft, so you feel very ‘contained’.  Its incredible how strong and supportive the material is, yet so thin and soft, and I love that the higher back allows for no back fat rolls.  This shapewear is specifically created for first 8 weeks of postpartum recovery and post abdominal surgeries recovery, but I find this little number to be exactly what my post-baby body needs, and its been over 10 months since I delivered.  Look at the difference:

before after

See how I totally look pregnant without it?!?!  I even still have an outie belly button leftover from pregnancies.  I just don’t have any muscles to hold it in anymore!  And what a difference with my Wink shapewear.  It makes me look so much better and it makes me FEEL amazing.  They say you can’t buy confidence, but after trying out this Ultimate Belly Blaster, I beg to differ.

Take a look at these other fun shapewear products from Wink:

I’ve been silent for over a week, because I didn’t lose.  I gained.  A LOT.  Okay not  really a lot.  Just a couple of pounds.  But it was enough to make me discouraged.  Majorly discouraged!  Remember I had a problem a couple of weeks back with being introduced to Nutella?  It’s evil.  What was the culprit this time???  Sadly there was more than one:

818CCDScfDL._SL1500_

donuts

 

Sickening, isn’t it?  Of course I didn’t indulge in the mini bag of the mini eggs.  No siree.  I got the BIG ‘ole family bag.  I do have a family, so it was easy to rationalize getting that size of bag.  Only… My family may or may not have eaten the majority of the bag.  Okay.  They did not.  I ate them.  I munch.  I binged.  I lost complete control!  And the donuts.  Don’t even get me started on the donuts…

But those mini eggs.  Back to those glorious mini eggs.  They were just so good that they called out to me at the store this very morning.  They weren’t even in the spot they were in last week.  They had moved to the interior of the store with all the other Easter merchandise.  But they were able to call me I tell you!  They said, “Tara, we are over in aisle 5.  Come find us now!”  Oh and I did not resist.  I found them and I bought 2 bags.  I failed.

Someone please help me!  I’m in need of a major intervention.  Now before all hope is lost I think I may have found a solution.  Or rather it found me.  Just last week I was offered a position to do some social media consulting for Revolt.  What is it?  Well, it’s this amazing new fitness plan developed by Nichole Huntsman.  Great meal plans.  Quick workout videos.  All things I can do right from my own home!  It’s proven to transform your body in as little as 6 weeks.  I need that kind of transformation!  Do you?  Part of my job as their social media consultant is working with the bloggers.  So…  If you are a blogger and you are interested in trying out Revolt and blogging about it then give me a holler.  🙂   You can email me at dandygiveaway at gmail dot com   and I’ll give you all the details.

Getting Healthy Week 3: ONE pound!

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I never thought in all my life that I would be so excited over one pound.  It was a tough week and took a lot to get there.  Well, that’s not exactly true.  The week started off fabulously.  I stayed right on track, worked out, and ate super healthy  snacks.  This is by far my favorite:

481482_10151502094384813_2066396505_n

I could eat apples and peanut butter all day long and be quite content.  Soooo yummy!

Most of the week I was feeling pretty amazing.  In fact by Friday I was down FIVE pounds.  That’s right, FIVE pounds!  It might have been a lot of water weight (okay it was water weight), but it was FIVE pounds!!!

Then Friday evening came with dinner *insert horror film music* at this place:

Maggianos_logo

 

I had never before been to that restaurant (probably a good thing since I obviously can’t control myself when it comes to pasta) and it is dangerous…Let.  Me.  Tell.  You.

I entered thinking I would be totally good and just eat part of my eggplant parmesan.  Then they sabotaged me with bread and appetizers.  I was hooked.  That portion control of my meal?  Did.  Not.  Happen.  Plus, they are tricky tricksters.  When you order one of their classic dishes (i.e. my eggplant parmesan) they let you pick an extra classic pasta to take home with you!  How can anyone refuse free food?  Why is that tricky?  Well, here’s my logic:  You go home with that “free” meal.  You eat that “free” meal the next day, because it tastes so amazing and the guilt of it going bad is too much.  You gain weight from the 2 days of calorie rich pasta in a row.  You then feel bad from your mistake, but are now addicted to that particular restaurant.  You feed the addiction the next week by returning to said restaurant.  You get sent home with the “free” classic pasta.  And the vicious cycle goes on and on and on.

Well, this week I’m breaking free from the cycle.  I will not be returning to the above restaurant any time soon.  At least until I’m able to control myself.  😉   This week I’m going to work really hard at eating healthy (the entire week) and working out.  Plus, I’m looking forward to starting on this new fitness plan.  Stay tuned…

Getting Healthy!

It’s time to start to…

GET  HEALTHY  AT:

Tara-Button-2

Are you ready for this???  It’s Monday and I think that’s the best day to start.  Why wait until the middle of the week?  So… Let’s get this started, shall we?  Throughout the coming weeks we can all share tips, recipes, etc.  Be sure to check in often since I’m planning to post biweekly.  In blog postings I’m going to share with you my goals for the upcoming week(s).  Feel free to share your own plans in comments as I think it will be beneficial for us to all work together!  Some of us might be looking to exercise more.  Some of us might be looking to lose some weight.  (I’m wanting to drop 20 lbs.)  Some of us might be looking to maintain our weight through diet and exercise.  Whatever we are looking for I think we can all stay motivated with a support system!  A dandy support system!  😉

Here are my goals for this week:

  • I’m going to start tracking again.  Tracking EVERYTHING.  I’m a lifetime member of Weight Watchers and have their app on my phone, so it makes it very easy to track.
  • I’m going to eat healthier.  The fridge is stocked with some fresh fruit (blackberries, blueberries, apples, strawberries, oranges) and I’ll be reaching for the fruit in place of candy treats.
  • I’m going to workout on the elliptical at least 3 times this week.

I’ll touch base with you all in a mid week posting.  Just to let you know how it’s going.  And you can do the same in the comments on that posting.  🙂   Then next Monday I’ll be posting my weigh in.  Fingers crossed this week goes well!

 What are your goals for this week???

Leave a comment to let us all know!  🙂  Oh and good luck to all!
