Summer Block Party! A week of healthy living tips and giveaways


Congratulations to SDaldof! entry #6 by random.org
It is the summer time and although I am still committed to healthy living, training for my half-marathon and making good diet choices, I also am a bit more indulgent. The dog days of summer just bring on my desire for sweet treats so when asked to participate in the Nestle Summer Block Party to provide tips for healthy family and giveaways of sweet treats I had to say yes. This week I will do a daily giveaway of Nestle products and we are starting off with a bang! A $300 Nestle drumstick party package with enough sundaes for the whole neighborhood in addition to at least $40.00 worth of coupons for other treats. On Friday in addition to coupons, I’m also giving away $100 Visa Gift Card!

Now, you may ask - how does this have anything to do with having a healthy family and staying fit? Which brings me to my 1st tip of the week: EVERYTHING in moderation!


During my journey to healthy living I have paid close attention to everything that I eat, both the “good” and the “bad”. I’ve found that when I’ve deprived myself of the “bad” foods, I tend to overindulge. By allowing myself and my family to have “treats” a couple times a week we don’t feel like we are missing out on anything. Remember, everything in moderation - ice cream counts too!

Giveaway
1 NESTLÉ® Drumstick® Heroes Summer Celebration Package, valued at approx. $300.This fun-filled, NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® Heroes summer celebration package comes complete with enough NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® Sundae Cones for a party of 50 pals. If you’d like to nominate a young hero to win their own summer celebration package, visit: http://www.drumstick.com/promotions/heroes.aspx
2 JUICY JUICE®
2 OVALTINE®
2 EDY’S®/DREYER’S®
1 CARNATION® Breakfast Essentials
1 WONKA®
1 STOUFFER’S®
1 NESQUIK®
1 TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Cookie Dough
1 TOLL HOUSE® Morsels

To enter simply leave a comment telling me if you eat everything in moderation or if you are completely strict about your diet!

I don't eat everything! I WISH I could. But I like to stay below a certain weight. I'm a junk food junkie but I rarely eat ice cream, don't do shakes anymore-- or baked goods and snacks. Instead I satisfy my sweet cravings with a bowl of chocolate-flavored cereal or a chocolate protein bar. I also stay away from macaroni and cheese. Sigh.

It would be nice to have my old (early twenties) metabolism back! lol.

Oh this sounds like a wonderful package! I normally eat everything in moderations. HOWEVER, I'm currently increasing fruits and veggies because I don't have enough of them in my diet. So I'm temporarily eliminating other foods to make room for the good stuff.

I'm pretty good with moderation, though it is hard to resist ice cream in the summer (hence why I'm over here entering a giveaway for it). I do agree that deprivation creates food issues, and I find that just a hint of chocolate (a few choc chips) does wonders at curbing cravings.
