Tony Horton's 10 Minute Trainer Kicks My Booty! Subway Rawks OVER

I have been trying really hard to work on my weight here lately.  I’ve cut out sodas a LOT and for those days that I can’t live without it, I bought the mini cans of soda.   You know, for a fix.  Yes, I truly am addicted to soda and have withdrawals and need fixes.

So, I also have been doing Tony Horton’s 10 Minute Trainer.  Now you would think that you can really do much for your entire body in that 10 minutes but GOOD GAWD, it kicks my butt!  I have this  great video of me working out to it but my windows movie maker apparently doesn’t like the how it’s formatted and won’t import it.  Arrrrgghhhh… I can show you my fat butt doing push ups and such.  Anyways, I love the workout and my body is sore everyday…still have not gotten through the soreness but I will…hopefully.

I’m also eating better.  Cutting out sugars, salts, and carbs….well, not completely cutting them out but trying to be smarter about it.  It’s all about baby steps for me.  Since we live a good ways from town, we always ending up eating in town.  Something I’ve been trying to do is pick smarter choices from the heart attack filled menus at fast food but what has been really great are those beautiful half white-half yellow words called, SUBWAY.  Man, these people did it right!  Delicious, healthy choices with options.  Since I rarely step outside the box to try something new, I always get the 6incher….Roast Beef, NO cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, mustard on whole wheat.  Is it still healthy if you ask for extra roast beef?  Just curious………


So to celebrate my upcoming New Year’s Resolution (weight loss & being healthy), I have a giveaway!

There will be 2 winners.

1st place winner will win the Tony Horton 10 Minute Trainer bundle..valued at well of $100.

2nd place winner will win a $15 Subway Gift Card!

    I’ve always had luck with counting points with Weight Watchers. I allow myself the some extra goodies with my flex points during those holiday parties. My favorite sub would have to be the Subway Club loaded with veggies. Thanks for the chance to win and good luck with the weight loss.

    I know that there will be lots of temptations so I make sure I drink lots and lots of water. Not only keeps me full but also flushes out my system.

    I stay healthy by pushing my chair away from the table before I sit there long enough to gorge myself and make myself miserable on all of the delicious food. My favorite sandwich at Subway is the Sliced black forest ham and tomatoes, cheese, black olives, and half mayo and half ranch dressing. Thank you for the opportunity to win!
