When it comes to making healthy choices and staying active, it’s very easy for life to step in and tell you ‘No’! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to get my life together, lose weight, eat right. But it’s hard. With the stresses of everyday life, kids demanding attention and work or school it get be hard to not skip healthy for the easy.

I recently started back at college which means when I’m home with the kiddies at night while my husband is at work, I not only have to care for them and their needs but work on getting my homework done as a full time student. One of the classes I’m taking is a fitness class. Not only will it help me stay committed to my physical fitness because of my grade, it will also help me become consistent.

Instead of just jumping in though, I’ve been trying to do a few little things at home to get back into being active again. A walk here, extra steps there. It hasn’t been anything that would make huge weight changes but it’s something to get me going. One of the ways I’ve been logging this extra activity besides my normal fitness apps is by using Walgreens Balance Rewards app. We use Walgreens a lot. With a Child like Landon, who at any given time has 2-3 prescriptions if not more, we are there often. I’ve had their app for a while for prescription refills and pill reminders but didn’t really know a whole lot about the #BalanceRewards program.

With Balance Rewards you earn points with purchases of specially marked items. These points equate to dollars you save on your next purchase. What is really great is the fact that now you can use the healthy choices program to track activity, weight, sleep and more all while earning points for tracking. It’s easy convenient and a great way to earn money off at a store we use all the time! I know I will continue to use this app and earn earn earn!

A look into depression…mine anyway.

Originally, I wrote this when I was having a really rough time a few weeks ago. It was a post written in my car at Walmart while I balled my eyes out and listened to sappy music. It made me feel better but I wasn’t sure if I would ever post it. While I don’t…
