Staying Healthy with Walgreens Steps

#cbias, #BalanceRewards 
As some of you know, last week was REALLY rough for me! I woke up Wednesday with excruciating pain in my mouth. Thinking it was my teeth, I made an immediate appointment with my dentist. Four feelings later and, the pain was still there. Ugh! So, Friday we headed to Urgent Care where I was diagnosed with a severe sinus infection. Two shots and some antibiotics later, I was on the road to recovery.

Since I needed to go to Walgreens to have my prescription filled, I decided to grab a few other things to help keep me healthy. The doctor suggested I pick up some Alavert to get me through this awful season with as few allergy attacks and sinus infections as possible. I also picked up a case of water (staying hydrated is SO important), a few Luna Bars to get me through the busy days and some Glide Floss Picks that the dentist recommended.

I had seen some signage in Walgreens about the Walgreens Steps with Balance Rewards program so, I decided to check out the app. The Steps program rewards you for tracking your weight and being active. You are rewarded 20 Balance Rewards points when you track your weight, and another 20 points when you walk 1 mile! I earned 250 points just for setting my first goals! That is AWESOME! I love saving money and I am trying to get healthy, seems like a win win to me!

Signing up is super easy! You just enter your email address, select your gender and you are set! It took maybe 2 minutes, most of that was trying to type on my phone. HA! You can also sign up online.

Once you are signed up, a little screen pops up informing you of ways you can earn points. Just click off that and start setting your goals! The one thing I wish you could do with this app is to edit/add what suites you. For instance, I ride a bike, I would love to have that as an option rather than running. Or a way to track how much water I have drank in a day. But I do like the Activity and Weight Loss Goals and have been using them every day.

I can tell this is going to be great motivation for me to continue to exercise! I will update you all around my birthday to let you know how I did and how many points I was able to earn.

Right now you can also enter the Steps to Win Sweepstakes! You have a chance to win daily instant win prizes and a grand prize, a trip to The Biggest Loser resort of the winner's choice. The sweepstakes run until May 31st.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
