Last year I ventured into a weight loss journey and successfully lost 40 lbs over the spring and summer by making healthy choices! As winter came along, I found myself sluggish, not working out as much, and enjoying holiday goodies and winter comfort foods a little too much. By the time warm weather hit this year, I stepped on the scale and discovered I had gained quite a bit of the weight back. To say this was disheartening was an understatement.
Though I didn’t let it get me down for too long… Aside from my general health, there is an important reason of why I want to get in shape and boost my energy. That reason is this little guy below! This momma needs to be able to keep up with him and his energy!
Thanks to Walgreens Balance Rewards with healthy choices, I’m now stepping up my weight loss journey and weight management by taking advantage of all the amazing resources and products that Walgreens has to offer in store and through their app program! The goal is to make daily healthy choices. Not only does Walgreens Balance Rewards guide me to which choices are in the best interest of my health, but also gives me incentives to actually follow through on those choices through earning rewards. Save money, burn calories, and earn perks? Sounds like a win-win-win to me!
Now before I dived head on into this journey, I ventured to my local Walgreens to pick up a few items. They always have such a great selection of useful products!While browsing the health section my focus was finding items to assist with my energy! I tell you, energy is something I’m lacking. I need energy to keep up with my son, energy to stay alert at work, and most of all energy to keep me motivated to exercise, whether it’s a nice run, trip to the gym, or even a simple walk. Vitamins were definitely on the list of products to check out. While I was there in the aisle, I figured it would be a great idea to pick up some “gummy” vitamins for my son as well!Well I guess that day was my lucky day! Walgreens was having a Buy One Get One Free sale with the Vitamins for Balance Rewards Members! Not only did I pick up the multivitamin I was looking for, but also B12 to help boost my energy even more. Again, another reason I’m happy to be a Rewards member.When heading to check out, I couldn’t help but notice a sale on yogurt! What a great healthy snack to keep me going during the day. At just 79 cents a piece, I couldn’t help but pick up a few.Now every day I’ve been trying to run, walk, or at least go outside and run around with my son. It’s become part of my daily routine. As I mentioned before, I’m aiming to increase my energy to keep up with my active toddler!I tell you… kids grow up so fast! As they grow, they become bigger, stronger, more curious… and FASTER! Running around the playground with this guy is quite a feat! Luckily the vitamins are helping me stay more alert and keep up with this guy. Just playing on the jungle-gym with him can definitely be considered exercise…Speaking of exercising… One aspect that is really cool about Balance Rewards is that you can connect your account to your health/fitness device or app. For instance, I use RunKeeper on my phone to track my runs and walks that I go on in my community. As you can see, RunKeeper is one of the compatible trackers!
Be sure to browse compatible trackers in the expanded Device & App Gallery to find it in the list. Balance Rewards is compatible with FitBit, iHealth Monitors, Jawbone and more! Once you’ve linked up, your daily activity will update on the go and you get automatic points. How awesome is that?
It really is so simple to do! Usually when I walk or jog to the park with my son and don’t want to pause my RunKeeper, I use another app to track the distance and use this manual mode to enter my activity.
Curious about other ways to earn Balance Rewards? Walgreens offers plenty of ways to earn points! Plus tracking fitness, weight, blood pressure, and blood glucose is a great way to stay focused on your health or weight loss/management goal. You can track pulse oxygen and sleep as well, but you do not earn points for tracking them.
Long story short… The more healthy choices you make through tracking via Balance Rewards means the more savings and more perks you’ll earn at Walgreens!
