Giveaway - Ring In 2012 With Amway's Nutrilite Vitamins Package!

Feel a big sluggish during the Holidays? You know, it just might be due to those extra servings you've been having. We all tend to have big dinners during the Holidays when our families come over and the extra food and calories will break you! Ever since my Nutrisystem days I've been keeping up with healthy eating, counting calories going in and out. Portion size is the most important factor to take into consideration. Want to get back on track these last couple of days in 2011? Thanks to Amway's Nutrilite, I got a couple products to review.

Nutrilite Concentrated Fruits and Vegetables Tablets (60ct.). These tablets are made from fruit and veggie concentrates, many of which they grow on their certified organic farms, and contain no artificial color,s flavors or preservatives. Two tablets provide phytonutrients of 10+ of fruits and veggies that benefit heart, circulatory, colon, eye and prostate health.
Nutrilite Fruits and Vegetables 2GO Twist Tubes (20ct.). These tubes are extremely convinient and provide you with 2 servings of fruits and veggies. It contains Vitamin C (equivalent to 1 serving of cantaloupe) that helps boost and protect your immune system and beta carotene (equivalent of 1 serving of carrots) which promotes healthy eye and skin health.

I have been taking both the tablets and twist tubes for about a week. Its going hand in hand with my healthy eating. Over the Holidays it is next to impossible to for a lot of us to get the recommended 9 - 13 servings of fruits and veggies needed. We had family over for Christmas and our traditional food from our homeland doesn't really include and fruits or veggies. It is very easy to over eat and pack on calories during this time but for those of you that are on a diet, it is not recommended. Here are a couple of tips to stay healthy these last days of 2011:
  • -There surely will be left overs, that doesn't mean you have to eat them in excess. Keep to your good eating habits and keep portions in mind.
  • -Drink a lot of water. I can not stress this enough. Water is important.
  • -As hectic as these days might be, exercise any chance you get, even if its just a walk around the block.
  • -If you can't eat you daily servings of fruits and veggies, consider Amway's Nutrilite products. Fruits and veggies play a vital part in your health.
Easy and simple tips that will make you feel great by the time 2012 rolls around. Amway's Nutrilite has a range of vitamins, supplements and other products to address the nutritional needs of you and your family. They have been generous enough to help ONE LUCKY READER to WIN an Amway Nutrilite Package that includes the Nutrilite Fruits and Vegetables 2GO Twist Tubes and Nutrilite Concentrated Fruits and Vegetables Tablets that I received! :) Visite Amway's Nutrilite en EspaƱol.

This Is What Happens When I'm Behind On Couponing + My Holidays!

Coupon Clutter During Holidays
See the picture above? That's what happens when I have a lot going on. I just went through my coupon filer in my bag and they were ALL expired (I won't even mention how many old inserts I have that are all expired too). I have not been on a Shopping Round-Up trip in a while, and this was due to school (especially during finals), the Holidays and just life. The Holidays make everything so hectic, so much that I took a 5-hour nap on Christmas and missed my Green Bay Packers win and beat the Bears! I missed my Clay Matthews made an interception :(

Well, life is back on track, the worst is over (hopefully). My house is still full of little cousins sleeping over for the week, the grandparents and then some, but its always fun! The reason I went through my coupon filer was because I am well rested and READY to hit up Target in a couple hours. I LOVE clearance, and all things Christmas-related should be at 50% today. Woohoo!

I actually got a couple gifts this Christmas, all from my uncles. Mostly money (no 4ft. Maxx the Sock Monkey, unfortunately) and gift cards, but that's far better than getting absolutely nothing last year. Well, I did get a gift from my buddy Kerry from TotallyTarget. What was it? A Justin Bieber doll that I adore lol. Justin hangs out with Spock, they are the best of friends! :) I hope you ALL had a wonderful Christmas and enjoy your New Years! Let's start off 2012 on a positive note!

P.S.  Santa... Clay Matthews was not under my tree! Please remember next year, lol. I'll settle for his jersey or even a huge wall decal of him! :)
