Fit Mommy Friday

Heather —  November 3, 2010

Ok. So let’s try this AGAIN.

A sweet blogging friend of mine began a challenge a while back called Fit Mommy. The concept is great–eat healthy, exercise, challenge yourself to whatever level you want. Check in with a group of likeminded and supportive women with a check-in blog post each Friday and read up about how everyone else is doing.

I started out with a bang. Then, the weather continued to be freezing…and I got sick. I whined and groaned and over the next few weeks, basically dropped out of Fit Mommy. (I think they were probably glad)

Anyway, I saw recently that Fit Mommy is having a showdown to help people get motivated again during the Holiday Season:

“Beginning Monday, October 25 and running through December 31st (65 days), Fit Mommy is hosting its first Fitness Challenge!”

Now, I just blogged about this, and I know it’s a bit late. But everyone is welcome to join in…and there is even a prize package for a lucky Fit Mommy!!

I told Denise (the original Fit Mommy) that I really should do this. I also admitted that I could probably drop some weight instantaneously if I quit one thing….yes, that would be having a glass of wine in the evenings. Or was that two? (yes, mom, I’m mostly joking)

Anyway, Smart Fit Mommy Denise sent me a fantastic video clip that says it all. Take a look:

Motivated? There are a bunch of people playing along–Go to Got Chai to join in!

My goals? I will post them this coming Friday! Right now, I am off to download Fit Mommy 10 Week Daily Checklist available through Mrs. White’s blog @ The Legacy of Home (She’s the co-host for the challenge:)

Thank to everyone who commented, and thanks to Peter Rabbit Organics for sponsoring the giveaway!

What a treat! These Peter Rabbit Organic Fruit Pouches are absolutely marvelous–and PERFECT to put into Easter Baskets!

In our family, we are now trying to make the shift to using mainly organic products. I expected this change to be difficult, but instead I am finding there are many great options out there and feeding your children organic food is MUCH easier than I anticipated!

The Peter Rabbit Pouches are 100% organic, 100% fruit snack fruit pouches that can be eaten on the go…or relaxing at home. They are being sold for babies six months and up and children, but…shhhh… I love these also! A quick healthy sweet snack:) My 4 year old says the Strawberry and Banana is the best.

so cute, so healthy!

so cute, so healthy!

Right now they come in three fruit varieties, Strawberry and Banana, Mango, Banana and Orange and Apple and Grape.

To me, they taste like a fruit puree. They have an anti-swallow cap and you can also re-close the cap—if your child needs just a bit, reclose and save for later—I think that is genius…you do not need a spoon or anything and can stick them in your purse or baby bag.

And, using them saves me a lot of worry about sugar and preservatives.

I recently saw some in my local Starbucks. You can also get them at select Whole Foods Markets and independent natural food stores in a number of regions across the country. All three flavors are also on Amazon.com. See their website for lots more information on where to buy.

One lucky reader will win a Sampler Pack of Peter Rabbit Organic Snack Pouches! (10 pouch case of mixed flavors).
