Balance Rewards For Healthy Choices



This is the second part of my article on buying fitness gifts via Walgreens Balance Rewards.  You can accumulate reward points when you buy certain items at Walgreens or on Walgreens.com. Right now, I have 45550 points and that is a little more than $50.  My goal is to have 80,000 points by the end of the year so I can buy Christmas gifts. Walgreens now has a program online, in which you can earn points by staying active and keeping your blood pressure, blood sugar, weight and cholesterol at a healthy level.  It is called Balance Rewards For Healthy Choices.

First you go to Walgreens.com set up an account, if you don't have one.  After that, go to the tab that says, Health Info and Services and then scroll down to Balance Rewards for Healthy Choices.  From there you can log in your cardio miles or steps on a FitBit or pedometer.  Because you have to record  steps or miles, you can't put down activities that don't log miles like boot-camp or weight training. You would have to wear a pedometer or some other activity tracking device, if you don't know your mileage.

You can also get points by tracking your weight loss or any decrease in cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar. Too bad Walgreens doesn't have the blood pressure stations like they have in the CVS drug stores. This would be an excellent way to take and record your blood pressure.  I recently lost 6 pounds and I also received balance points for my weight loss endeavors. As you can see, this is a great program you need to take advantage of, so sign up today.

Free Diabetic Recipe Book And Other Health Guides



I have several friends and neighbors who are diabetic and they could use this recipe book.  Every holiday, they seem to go overboard with the gluttony of the season, be it the 4th of July or Thanksgiving.  Just because it is a healthier, low fat and low calorie recipe does not make it inedible.  In fact, these recipes can be quite good, you have to give it a try.

Do you have diabetic family members, friends or co-workers who could use this recipe guide?  Send them this post because the book is free.  If they try any of the recipes and they like them, tell me about it and I will interview that person for the blog.  We have to spread the word about healthy eating especially to heavier families.

Here are other free guides you can download and send to friends:

Knee Pain Guide

Multiple Sclerosis Connect Free Guide

I Love Fiber One Bars

Fiber-one-bars


I love Fiber One bars and this is my usual breakfast in the mornings along with a piece of fruit.  Because I have to be out of the house by 4:30 am to get to my first client, I don't have time to sit down and eat breakfast.  Breakfast is in my car.

Last week at boot-camp class, my sister and another exerciser were discussing how good the lemon bars by Fiber One taste.  I have been missing out since I usually just by their chocolate products.  I can tell you,  I was missing out!  They are delicious.  If you have never tried Fiber One, look below and select a coupon.  The next time you are at the store, grab the lemon bars, you won't be disappointed.
