Blog Forward Challenge #3 ~ Time to Recharge and Renew! (ZonePerfect "Well Being" Essentials Kit Giveaway)


You may have read my first two Blog Forward challenge posts earlier this year when I talked about my New Year's resolutions and making better choices this year.  My main focus for 2014 is to lose weight and become more active. I'm still faithfully working toward that goal. 
I've received complimentary ZonePerfect bars for participating in the Blog Forward Challenge this year. I will also be entered into a contest when I complete all of the ZonePerfect Blog Forward challenges for a chance to win additional prizes for myself and my readers.


In order to recharge and renew my excitement and commitment that I made to myself earlier this year, I decided to join a "summer slim" program at the gym.  It consisted of 12 weeks of personal training with a group of 5 other ladies, two nights a week for 30 minutes.

During the course of our 3 month program, there were sessions where I thought I was going to die, my legs were going to collapse, and that I would surely not be able to make it through to the end...

I worked through my fears and frustrations, didn't give up, and was 1 of 2 of us that made it through the entire program!  In the end, I managed to lose 4 pounds and a total of 21.5 inches!

But, I'm still not done.  I just signed up for another 12 week program with the same trainer and another group of wonderful ladies, there are 4 of us this time.  We start tomorrow and I can't wait to see the results. 

ZonePerfect bars are the perfect pre and post workout snack!  Be sure to stop by the ZonePerfect Facebook page to learn more and print off a valuable money-saving coupon! 

I'm focused, determined and have a renewed passion to reach my goal before the holidays!  I'm going to concentrate on healthier eating, smaller portions, daily water intake, and exercise.

I'd try Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Anything chocolatey would be great.

I like that they make a kids zone bar. My son and I would both like to try the yellow cupcake flavor kids bar.
