Setting Fitness Goals with Walgreens New Steps with Balance Rewards

I am a Walgreens frequenter.  It started because our last house was right by a Walgreens and it was so easy just to shoot over there for everything we needed.  Mainly because, they had a little bit of everything.  You can also park by the door and it's not crazy crowded and you don't have to walk 3 miles to get to the back of the store.  That being said, I am also always looking for a way to save money; often creatively.  So now I'm doing their Balance Rewards program.  You earn points for every purchase which get you cash back.  You also get better prices on lots of items.  If you're a frequenter, it's a helpful program.

At the Presley household, we have been trying (since forever & especially lately) to maintain?  achieve?  strive toward? some level of fitness.  We want to be healthier & cuter.  We want to set a good example to our kids & have enough energy to keep up with them!  Whew!  We could use all the help we can get -for realz.  Enter the newest perk to Balance Rewards members.  It's called Steps, I'd like to call it extra motivation.    You sign up and start logging your weight, make goals, log your exercise & they give you a ton of Balance Rewards points for each entry; 20 pts per mile, or weigh-in.

It's super easy to get started.  I downloaded the free Walgreens app:

You can just set your goals right in the app:  

You earn badges along the way to encourage you:

It's pretty fun!!!

My goals were to try to be active each day.  Specifically, for me, that is to use the elliptical 20-30 minutes daily.  Also, to lose 10lbs!  I feel so much more energetic & happy when I weigh less & stay active.  Earning points for cash back is some extra motivation to get moving.  If going walking or running is your thing, you can hook up your fitness device to your Steps with Balance Rewards account!  Simplicity.

During my last trip to Walgreens I decided to pick up some African Mango supplements to assist me in my weight loss.  I had just recently read that it has a high-soluable fiber content &, if taken 30-60 minutes before meals can reduce appetite, lower cholesterol & triglycerides, reduce fat cell growth, boost the breakdown of fats, & improve blood sugar control.  All that is in here is mango & green tea.  No weird stuff.  All natural.  Couldn't hurt, right?
