After spending far too much time not moving while we hibernated last winter and then proceeding to eat huge meals day after day on a cruise this spring, it was time for a change. My clothes didn't fit, my body didn't feel like my own and I was out of breath from doing just about anything (which was mostly just changing positions as I laid on the couch).
Fortunately, just in time to help boost my motivation and inspire me to add healthy food and physical activity to my life, I was introduced to the Balance Bar Summer Shape Up Challenge.
The Balance Bar Summer Shape Up Challenge is all about looking and feeling your best all summer long. Featuring daily workout ideas, healthy eating tips and fitness challenges to help reignite anyone's summer fitness routine, it is a quick and easy way to find inspiration to feel your best this summer... as well as entering to win Summer Shape Up Challenge prizes every Friday!
If that isn't enough, the Balance Bar Summer Shape Up Challenge also features weekly workout videos by expert trainer Holly Del Russo that are designed to target trouble zones. From developing awesome arms to getting your glutes toned and ready to flaunt for the rest of summer, you're going to want to head over and find your motivation now!
What more could I ask for?
It didn't take long before the kids and I were on our way to Walmart so that I could pick up a few boxes of Balance Bars so that I could get started on my own shaping up for summer.
Ack! So many decisions between the delicious flavor options!
As well as providing the balanced energy that comes from Balance Bar's 40-30-30 nutrition principle (40% of calories come from carbohydrates, 30% from quality protein and 30% from dietary fat), Walmart has plenty of exercise equipment, DVDs, mats, gear and more to help just about anyone get in shape.
The combination of my delicious and nutritious Balance Bars from Walmart, lacing up my tennis shoes for exercise in and out of the house, the great tips from the Shape Up Challenge, and a little determination and willpower have already gotten 10 lbs off of my body, which makes me pretty happy!
But even with the end of summer on the horizon, that doesn't mean that my own personal Shape Up Challenge will come to an end and that it is too late for yours to begin! Head over to visit Balance Bar on Facebook to see all of their helpful information (and enter to win prizes) so that you too can get up and get moving.
You'll also want to visit Balance.com to find out more about the huge variety of flavors of these power-packed bars. As well as at your local grocery store and health food store, you can also find Balance Bars at ShopBalance.com and on Amazon.
Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be on their way to starting their own healthy journey as well, because...

I received a Walmart gift card and additional product as part of a sponsored collaboration with Balance Bar, however, all thoughts and opinions are honest and my own. If you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.
