How Do You Get Fit Like the Seahawks? (And Giveaway!)

Obesity rates in my lovely state of Washington have almost doubled in the past 15 years. 11.1 percent of children and adolescents in Washington are considered obese. Why? Because our children eat crap and they don’t move enough. Simple as that.

Local SUBWAY restaurants are working hard to make feeding your child healthy options a little easier and in addition to their healthier, lighter offerings are taking it a step further. SUBWAY is teaming up with my future ex-husbands The Seahawks to tackle (ha!) childhood obesity with a fun contest that rewards students for eating healthy and staying active. Through Oct. 1, all students are invited to share how they “Get Fit Like the Seahawks“.

“We are excited to broaden our partnership with SUBWAY restaurants through the FRESH FIT Video and Poster Competition,” said Seahawks president Peter McLoughlin. “We want students to share their success stories and how leading an active lifestyle helps them to succeed.”

Just like the Seahawks (Go Hawks!), all athletes have to work hard to keep their body in tip-top condition. The Hawks want to see how students stay in shape. Public, private and homeschooled students ages 5 to 14 are invited to share their own fitness game plan, through a poster or video, for an entry in to the SUBWAY FRESH FIT Video and Poster Competition. Contest entries will then be judged by a local panel (which includes me!) Every entry gets a $5 gift card to SUBWAY, and a select few stand out entries will be selected for some sweet swag:

The OurSkinny Diet Review and Giveaway!

With a tagline like “The Easiest Diet Ever” it was hard to not be intrigued. I like easy when it comes to eating. And most things.

When I heard bars and shakes, I was a little skeptical, but would you expect anything less?

Diet Overview

The OurSkinny diet was developed by doctors, and consists of drinking four 100 calorie shakes in the morning, one OurSkinny bar in the

On my dash: The definition of on-the-go

afternoon and a sensible, balanced dinner of your own choosing called a Main Meal, or one of their Mini Meals you can purchase. Your Main Meal should consist of 3 servings of vegetables, one 3-4 oz portion of lean meat, and a healthy fat. It really is pretty easy.

The diet says your body will start to adjust to the diet around day 3- your hunger should fade and you’ll feel energized as your body enters fat burning stage. Then, 5 pounds before your goal weight you can start to incorporate previously excluded foods back into your diet.

The Shakes: Sweet but good.

The shakes range from 80-100 calories and contain protein, calcium and potassium.

I tried the Vanilla Pro and Chocolate Pro. The Vanilla was too sweet for my tastes, but I would use it in a smoothie. The chocolate was great, and I would definitely drink it again. I was surprised how thick they were for just adding  few ounces of water.

The Bars: To die for. Since I didn’t follow the exact diet, I enjoyed the food on my own schedule and ate the bars with my morning cup of coffee. Each and every one was delish.
