Old Navy Style Council

Crowdtap chose me to participate in Old Navy's Style Council. They sent me a coupon for a free sweater and another coupon to share.  I love Old Navy and I needed some new sweaters for work so this was perfect!  I shared this opportunity with my sister.  There were so many styles to choose from but I chose a solid swoopneck sweater.

I'm so glad Crowdtap chose me for this Sample and Share and I can't wait to participate in future Sample and Share opportunities!!

$250 Gift Card Giveaway!! Ends 5/15

Time for another #SuperEvent Giveaway! I'm so excited to introduce you all to YNL {You Never Lose}! Hosted by Full Price? Never! with contributing bloggers CuzinLogic and MyCraftyLife.

About YNL- is an amazing auction site that is transforming the way people shop and play online.  To play, you buy gift cards from retailers like Macy’s, GAP or Sears, and get them sent to you with free shipping.  Then, for every dollar you spend on gift cards, you get free reward points to play in auctions to win even more amazing gift cards – think Amazon and Starbucks - at more than 90% off! How does scoring a $25 Amazon gift card for $0.24, or a $50 Wal-Mart gift card for $2.25 sound? It’s pretty amazing, and people like you are grabbing these great deals around the clock! Best of all, there is no risk to play in the auctions – since you get reimbursed with gift cards for every dollar you spend.

Don’t believe it?  See what their fans are saying on Facebook, or go check out their media clips – they have been featured on CBS, AOL, Business Insider and more. Or you can get in on the action yourself.  All of the fun, none of the risk – and best of all, you never lose!

Learn more about YNL on Facebook and Twitter.  Be sure to like YNL on Facebook because they will be releasing a 5 point code on their Facebook page the last day of this giveaway, May 15th!

Let's get the fun started!!!Not only do you have a chance to win a $250 Gift Card but you can also try YNL with 10 free points by entering the coupon code: GIVEAWAY10

Heather from "Full Price? Never!" had a lot of fun trying out the auction part of You Never Lose! Here are her thoughts: "YNL is high energy fun with the chance to win the option to purchase gift cards at pennies on the dollar.  When I was playing I saw someone win a Trader Joe's $25 gift card for $1.81 {A-M-A-Z-I-N-G}!  Simplified, all you have to do is buy a gift card and then you get points that you an use to bid on being able to buy another gift card at around 90% off {the one's I saw were going for that price}.  Be careful though... saving this kinda money can make paying full price elsewhere extremely painful!"

Ready for the giveaway?  Simply enter on the Rafflecopter below for a chance to win a $250 gift card.  The gift card will be the winners choice from the stores available at that time on  This giveaway ends at 11:59pm est on May 15th 2012.  Good luck and thanks for entering!!

Baby Shower Celebration!! Ends 5/12

I am thrilled to be joining Tots and Me to celebrate the birth of her precious baby boy.  Her Baby Shower Celebration has been extended due to unforeseen circumstances.  The following review was written by Tots and Me.

Tots and Me
A couple of months ago I shared a little bit about

I was sent the Baby Aspen Baby M.D. Three-Piece Layette Set.  I fell in love with this outfit when I was browsing their site.  It comes packaged in this cute little "doctor's bag."

And it unfolds to show it off all set up.

The outfit comes complete with a surgical hat and booties.  And look closely, there is a stethoscope around the neck and even a pen in the pocket.  I just love the cute little details.  Such attention was given to detail that the stethoscope actually goes all the way around to the back of the neck.  I was even able to have baby Harold's initials embroidered on.  I just couldn't pass this up.  It was the closest I could come to a nurses uniform.  Daddy is an LPN and uncle is a physician's assistant.

Doesn't he look so cute?  Can you see this in his future?

Yes, it is a tad big for him.  This is a 0-6 size so he has room to grow into it and he can wear it for a long time.

I think the addition of the booties was just priceless.  It really looks like a doctor's outfit.  I have to admit I left the booties attached to the outfit as they were packaged.  He tends to kick socks and booties off and I didn't want to lose these booties.

Had to get a shot of daddy in his scrubs with the baby in his outfit.  Don't they make a sweet pair?

I just love the idea behind this outfit and the quality is great. has some of the cutest and most unique outfits I have ever seen.  Don't have anyone in the medical profession in your home?  Not as interested in this outfit as I am?
How about a Camo Layette Set

Baby Aspen Baby Camo Two-Piece Layette Set in Backpack Gift Box
Or a Baseball Three Piece Layette Set

Baby Aspen Baby Baseball Three-Piece Layette Set in All-Star Gift Box

And that is only the tip of the iceberg!  There are so many other baby clothes to choose from.  Cute little hats for boys or girls can be found.  And if you are looking specifically for a girl, they have the cutest tutus and headbands among so many other cute outfits and accessories.  What are you waiting for?  Head on over and check them out. 
 I am so thankful they agreed to help sponsor my Baby Shower Giveaway, and they have been so patient with me.  What a great company this is!
Don't forget to check out
You can also visit them on Facebook and Twitter.
And check out their internet newspaper for parents, Parentsnewz on Facebook and Twitter.
After you check out what they carry I am sure you would love to win a $25 GC so you can get something for yourself or perhaps as a baby shower gift. Just fill in the Rafflecopter below. 

Disclosure: I received  the Baby Aspen Baby MD layette set for free as a part of my Baby Shower Celebration. This did not in any way influence my review. I only recommend products I use personally and will be good for my readers.

CVS Trip Week of 4/22/12

For those of you that don't know, I am back in the states which means I am back to couponing, yay!!  I did some shopping last week but I goofed up a little so I figured I wouldn't bother posting that trip.  I got all of this at CVS for only $4 and it retails for $41.48!!  I love couponing and have missed it so much!!  Pictured is 6 Hallmark cards, 2 Physician Formula makeups, 2 16 packs of Tampax Radiant, and 2 18 packs of Kotex U.  The CVS I went to was out of the Blink Tears eye drops that I wanted but they were unloading their truck so I will stop by tomorrow to get them because those will be a $2 Money Maker so it will bring my total for everything to only $2!!  I was in withdrawal for the 10 months that I was in the Dominican Republic and I'm so happy to be back to couponing.

Nature's Sleep Slippers Giveaway Ends 5/10

I was asked to help promote a giveaway for Nature's Sleep slippers.

Review written by Bargain Hound: I have had the opportunity to review a pair of memory foam slippers from Nature's Sleep. I chose the color pink in the closed-toe style slipper. As soon as I tried them on I fell in love with them. They were SO comfy! I live in NY and the winters here are VERY cold. Not to mention that winters seem to last for 10 months out of the year here! Ok, a slight exaggeration but I wear slippers almost year round. I have owned many, many pairs of slippers in the last few years alone. We have 3 dogs, and our min-pin loves to sleep with her head in them, and our chihuahua loves to drag them around. So I'm always finding only one slipper at a time. But these slippers will not have that problem, because they will be treasured! As soon as I slipped into these, I could tell these were not my Walmart slippers. These were quality. They were so soft and had so much cushion, it was like I was walking on pillows. They not only feel incredibly soft, but they also keep my feet very warm! I'm one who is always cold, so having warm slippers is a must for me. I hate it when my feet get cold! Check out Nature's Sleep's online store, and use coupon code BEARS50 to save 50% off any purchase from their online store! This is an amazing deal!! Definitely "Bargain Hound" worthy! These slippers are $30 on their website, and this means you can score a pair for yourself for just $15! (I wear a size 8 and the Mediums fit me perfectly.) But that's not all they carry. I'm sure you've heard of Nature's Sleep before.. they carry memory foam mattresses, pillows, memory foam bed toppers, and even pet beds! Click here to register with Nature's Sleep and enter in a drawing to win any product from their store! (This will be the only mandatory entry in the Rafflecopter, so you can just do it now, and when you fill out the Rafflecopter form below, you can state you already did it) Follow Nature's Sleep on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter too! So would you like to win a free pair of Nature's Sleep memory foam slippers? Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below, to enter to win! This giveaway is open to US residents and will run from 4/26 to 5/10. Good luck to everyone!

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycle Bin Giveaway Ends 5/8

I was asked to help promote a giveaway for a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycle Bin. This review is written by Bargain Hound: I have had the opportunity to review a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler! I love the design of this cool gadget. It is large enough to hold all of our recyclables, but compact enough to hide under our kitchen sink! We used to have an ugly, out of place plastic container for our recyclables (and sometimes stuffed them in plastic bags), but this is so much nicer! No one has to look at our ugly recyclables anymore. In fact, this hidden recycler is actually very nice looking, and I wouldn't mind it if people could see it. But, it's designed to be hidden and it does a great job. You just throw your recyclables in it, and when it gets full, just lift the plastic handle and it slides off the door, and you can empty it into your larger recycle bin outside, in the garage, or wherever you store them. Then it just slides right back into place on the door. And although it's compact, it holds quite a bit. I am very impressed with this little recycler! And Rubbermaid makes the best products. When it says Rubbermaid, you know it's going to be made well!

About Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler:
  • Easy attachment to a cabinet door with hooks included with the product or screws
  • A convenient handle allows the bag to be easily transported to wherever your recycling is stored for pick-up or transport
  • A 5 gallon bag that holds up to 36 12-ounce cans and can fit a milk jug
  • The bag has a leak-proof liner and is machine washable to make it easy to clean after any unexpected spills
  • The bag is soft-sided allowing for flexibility inside any cabinet
  • The bag and all packaging is made from recycled material, and the product is recyclable
Visit Rubbermaid on TwitterFacebook, and check out the Rubbermaid blog, too. Would you like to win a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler of your own? Well here's your chance! The awesome people at Rubbermaid are giving away one Hidden Recycler to one of my readers! Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below, to enter to win! This is open to US and Canada residents! This giveaway will run from 4/24 through 5/8. Good luck to everyone!

Oogave Natural Soda Giveaway Ends 4/20

I was asked to help promote another giveaway from Coupons in Motion for Oogave Natural Soda.  Read the review and enter to win below.  Thanks for entering and good luck!!

Thanks to Coupons In Motion for this Review & Giveaway!

Oogave! Oogave! I love saying that name. LOL

Looking for a natural soda? Look no further. But why stop there? If you care enough to go natural, go all the way and drink only organic soda. Oogave soda is BOTH natural and organic. And offers a variety of flavors.

I received a variety case of 12 sodas for my review. They all tasted great! The only one I was a little concerned about was grapefruit. But Coree from Oogave told me it is somewhat like the old Fresca. So my husband and I popped the top and gave it a try. Amazingly it was quite good. Probably one of my favorite flavors. You will want to check out Oogave's website to see all the flavors they have. They also have a slick Google Map to help you find them in restaurants, grocery stores, and other locations. You can search the map by zooming in or clicking on a location icon. Or just enter your zip code or address to find the locations closest to you! A little bit about how Oogave Soda came to be. The idea for OogavĂ© organic sodas first came to Esteban Anson while running his small natural foods restaurant in downtown Denver. As a fanatic of quality, and a devotee of delicious and wholesome handcrafted foods, Esteban used only the best natural ingredients in his restaurant. From the fresh baked breads to the home-made salad dressings, nothing artificial or commercial made it past Esteban. And that’s what his customers kept coming back for. With the help of two close friends and the Small Business Administration, Esteban built his own little soda plant in Denver, Colorado. The operation was certified Kosher and Organic by Scroll K and the Colorado Department of Agriculture. In January of 2009, the ribbon was cut and the first delicious bottles of OogavĂ© organic soda rolled off the line heading for natural grocery stores and restaurants around Colorado. (You can read more on their website.) Oogave is the first soda to be sweetened only with 100% certified organic agave nectar--not one drop of HFCS. Not only is agave nectar a fantastic sweetener, but the garbage found in traditional sodas has been removed. Artificial flavors, artificial colors, salt, and preservatives such as sodium benzoate are not used. Oogave has only four principal ingredients: agave nectar, carbonated water, citric acid, and natural flavors--nothing that cannot be found in nature.

You can also find Oogave on Facebook and Twitter.

Oogave has generously offered a variety case of 12 sodas for the winner of this giveaway.
Enter on the Rafflecopter form below for your chance to win!
(All entries will be verified.)

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Cook'n Recipe Organization Software Giveaway Ends 4/15

Did you guys want another chance to win the Cook'n Software?  Well I was asked by Coupons in Motion to help promote her giveaway so read the review and enter below.  Thanks for entering and good luck!!

Thanks to Coupons In Motion for this Review and Giveaway!

Cook'n is an Online Recipe Organizer

Recipe cards, pages cut from magazines, family recipes written on notebook paper, index cards. Yep, I have all of those stuck in various places. Mostly in a large plastic container in one of my bottom kitchen cabinets and in a kitchen drawer. And when I want a particular recipe, I have to dig through both places because I don't remember where I put the one I'm looking for. Fess up. Does this sound like you? Where do you keep all your recipes? Do you have lots of cookbooks laying around that only have 1 or 2 recipes in them that you actually use? Do you like using your computer to stay organized? Then this is the product for you!

Cook'n is the The Easiest Way to:

  • Find the Best Recipes on the Internet
  • Capture and Save Internet Recipes
  • Enter Your Own Personal Recipes
  • Sync Recipes with iPhone, iPad, & Android
  • Print a Family Cookbook
  • Analyze Nutritional Values
  • Make Menus, Shopping Lists & More!
  • Get Free Cookbook with Purchase

Cook'n is several products in one


1) Recipe Manager

  • Easily add your own recipes
  • Capture hundreds of internet recipes
  • Create and organize cookbooks with different chapters
  • Search for recipes by what foods you have on hand
  • Easily change recipe serving sizes to automatically convert ingredient amounts
My thoughts on adding recipes. I did have a little bit of a problem when I first tried to "capture" (import) a recipe. I was following the instructions but it didn't pull the recipe in as stated. After doing a little searching in the HELP section, I found my answer. Cook'n is not set up to pull recipes from some websites, although the publishers are working on this issue. I was trying to pull a recipe from and was not able to. However, I found the same recipe on and it "captured" it with no problem.
When you are trying to find a recipe that you would like to add to your personal cookbook, you just type in what you are looking for, such as: brownies, slow cooker roast beef, macaroni salad, etc. The search engine in Cook'n then scours the internet to find you a recipe. This search option brings you up one or more recipes from different sources that meet your criteria. You can then look at the different recipes to determine which one you would like to import.
You can create many different cookbooks with different themes. It's a lot of fun just trying out all the different options available in this program.
I also tried entering my own recipes that I have on hand. Talk about easy! The format of Cook'n is very easy to follow. You just start typing and the program helps you along. Start typing "te" for teaspoon and it brings it up in a drop-down list. "C" and it brings up cup. And so on. You can have your recipes added to your cookbook in no time at all.

2) Menu Planner

  • Use your recipes to make meal menu plans
  • Create your own weekly, monthly, and yearly menus
  • Automatically generate a shopping list from your menus
  • Print your menus and stick them on the fridge

3) Grocery Shopping Assistant

  • Compiles your family's shopping list automatically
  • Organizes shopping list items by aisle
  • Converts to package sizes (e.g., tablespoon tomato paste to 8 oz. cans)
  • Choose which brands you want for your foods
  • Calculates your grocery cost

4) Personal Home Nutritionist

  • Analyze the nutritional elements of recipes and menus (even the ones you add!)
  • View standard nutritional labels for every food and recipes
  • Choose between brands to satisfy dietary needs
  • Include nutritional info on recipe and cookbook printouts

5) Cookbook Publisher

  • Print recipes on various card and paper sizes
  • Print entire cookbooks with title page, table of contents, and index!
  • E-mail recipes to friends
  • Export recipes to your website or blog
My overall opinion is that I think Cook'n is a great Online Recipe Organizer!
Cook'n has agreed to provide a copy of their Online Recipe Organizer to the winner of a giveaway hosted via Rafflecopter. Enter on the form below!


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Review: Francisca from Jyla's Three Of Us Giveaway was given the opportunity to try SnapSac products.  SnapSac is very popular with Mega swag bags at Hollywood requests, magazines are asking for it, bloggers and moms.   SnapSac sent me their Complete Bundle, Pop Colors.  The SnapSac Complete Bundle, Pop Colors is a nice Mother's Day Gift.  You can reuse the SnapSac Bags for many things.  It great to use for the beach, doctor visit, work, trips, carry clothes for kids, grocery shopping, school and so much more.  I love the colors they come in.  It's a cheerful color to brighten anyone's day.   The SnapSac comes in different sizes to choose from.  It's great to have bags that can give me, so many options when and where to use it.  The SnapSac bags are durable and stylish.  It's a Mother's Day must have. 

We recently found out that we're expecting our third child.  I'll be using the Mega Tote bag while in the hospital.  It's big enough to fit just about anything I need.  The Mega Tote comes in a cool gray fabric with off white ink and yellow handles. Size: 28”w x 19” h x 12”g.   I will use the Mega Tote to put the baby clothes, wipes, baby blanket, towel, clothes for me, slippers, hair brush, toothbrush, sneakers and camera more items. 

Another great feature is that the SnapSac bags can fold back into place.  When it's folded it looks like an envelope.  You can take the bags with you for extra storage.  SnapSac are eco-friendly and better for the environment and machine washable.

Soda Stream Giveaway 2 of 2 Ends 4/6

I was asked to help promote a giveaway for a SodaStream by 2 different blogger friends.  This one is from The Deals and More and you can find the other one here.

 Review by: The Deals and More

I had the wonderful opportunity to try out the amazing SodaStream. I love the idea of how you can make your own fresh soda any time you want just by using simple tap water, the machine, and syrups/flavors. I'm not a huge soda fan but my kids are. I try to limit their intake of soda because of all the sugar in them and this is the perfect alternative to buying cans or 2 liter bottles. The one thing I LOVE about this machine is that my kids can help make the soda. I will carbonate the water, the kids will choose what ever flavor of soda they want, I pour out the right amount of syrup into the hand dispensing/measuring lid and they will help pour and mix the soda. I find that the liter bottle is the perfect size to make for my family of 4. Everyone can have a glass and then I don't have to worry about left over soda in the bottle to go flat.

We are still working on the couple of flavors that are open but I love the wide variety of flavors. I can even make flavored water. There are so many different choices to choose from that SodaStream has you covered. If you (or your family) like soda I think this is a must to try. I personally like the naturals because I'm not a big splenda fan and I love that I can always tweak the syrup to the amount I want. I can't wait to try some of the other flavors in the naturals.

Now for the best part, the giveaway.
Here is what you will be entering to win:

  • Fountain Jet – winner’s choice of color (black/silver, red/silver or white)
  • 1 carbonating bottle, reusable for up to 3 years
  • Reusable carbonator to fizz up to 60L of soda
  • Variety 6-pack of popular sample-size flavors
  • 3 full-sized flavors of the winner’s choice

Soda Stream Giveaway 1 of 2 Ends 4/3

I was asked to help promote a giveaway for a SodaStream by 2 different blogger friends so this is one of them from Powered By Mom and the other can be found here.  The giveaway is after the review.  Thanks for entering and good luck!

Go green, save money, less sugar, less carbs and it's easy to make! You'll love the Sodastream.

The Sodastream system is the new way to make soda inexpensively, is better for the environment, you can make your soda in 30 seconds or less, and you have a variety of flavors at your fingertips! Turn your tap water into soda and reduce your CO2 footprint! SodaStream is an "Active Green" product, meaning that consumers are actively reducing their CO2 footprint every time they make soda or sparkling water at home instead of buying it from the store. Now who wouldn't want a chance to win one of these? Read on and find out how to enter to win one of your very own!

Get Skinny Book & $10 Amazon GC Giveaway!! Ends 4/1

I am helping promote a giveaway for a Get Skinny book and $10 Amazon gift code.  This review was written by Penny Pincher Jenny.

 I was selected to review and giveaway a copy of Get Skinny, a Six Week Body Challenge written by Scott Schmaltz. Scott Schmaltz is a personal trainer of over 10 years and has already co-authored the book The Couch Potato: Family Edition. I was very excited at the timing of this review. My gym recently closed and I have been using what I learned there that could be done at home as well as other work out videos. 

My absolute favorite part of this book was the exercise pictures and the step by step directions. Each week of the book has 5-10 pages of pictures and directions for exercises that I can do at home with equipment I already have! Scott does a great job of breaking down how your posture should be and what to do for the work out as well as the recommended weights for both men and women! The plan breaks down what a man should do and what a woman should do or aim to do. This is awesome for me since I know my husband will never pick up a book to read I can now reference back to this book for the information. 

I am also impressed with the breakdown of the health components of the nutrients of food. So many diets tell you what to eat and when with how much. Scott breaks down why you need the nutrients, the good, the bad, and how to move forward. So much of it is easy to forget, it was a great refresher for me but I also love how I was able to sticky my sticky note tabs on these breakdowns for an easy refresher when I need that “reminder”. Menus are also given within the book using food easily found in any supermarket in the United States. The one thing I didn’t care for in the meal plan is to get recipes for the meals you have to go to his site to buy them. 

My first impression is that the book is a dry read the information is laid out in a way that is easy to use as a reference tool. I have taken sticky notes to my favorite workouts and also the nutrimental information to reference back to as well. I have gained a ton of refresher and new knowledge and hope you are able to as well. 

Now for the fun part! I was given a copy of the book to review and one to giveaway!  I am also including a $10 Amazon gift card. All of the opinions in this review are of my very own thoughts and opinions on this book. Enter on the Rafflecopter below- all entries will be verified.  Thanks for entering and good luck!!

Fit Moms for Life: How to Have Endless Energy to Outplay your Kids: Book Review & Giveaway with a $15 iTunes Gift Card Giveaway!

Dustin's new book, Fit Moms For Life chronicles the successes of 31 mothers who used Dustin’s fitness and weight loss program with stellar successes. Armed with personal stories with before and after photos, Dustin takes the reader through the five pillars of fitness: Mindset, Nutrition, Strength Training, Burst Training, and Environment. Ultimately leading to the end goal: Staying Fit for Life. Fit Moms for Life is perfect for Mothers (and women in general) who want a fitness program that works. Dustin Maher says:
  • Traditional Cardio Doesn’t Lose Fat
  • You Can’t Work Out to Compensate for Poor Eating
  • See Results 9 Times Faster With Burst Training
  • Learn ONE Exercise That Shrinks a Waistline WITHOUT diet changes
  • Burn Fat While You Sleep
  • A Healthy Environment Equals A More Fit Family

Review by Mom Does Reviews:

Fit Moms for Life: How to Have Endless Energy to Outplay Your Kids seems like the most fun and logical way for moms to get in shape. The whole book is based on common sense and tested theories. There are so many success stories throughout the book.  After reading it I felt ready to jump up and start exercising. The whole concept is a positive approach to getting the "old me" back after having kids, health problems, emotional problems and more. My favorite chapter in the book is Chapter 5: Food as Fuel. The 16 Rules to Eat By made me rethink my whole grocery shopping experience, cooking style and menu planning. My favorite rule, #13, Give yourself 2 to 3 cheat meals a week, really sold me on Dustin's Fit Moms experience. If you know you can indulge and have pizza and a greasy cheeseburger, you will be more likely to stick to your diet the other 33 meals that week. Often times after I splurge on one "bad meal," I get discouraged and don't go back to my diet. I am punishing myself for not having willpower to Just Say No to that huge ice cream sundae. Knowing its OK to cheat occasionally makes the program more realistic for me and many other moms! The New Rules of Cardio chapter was also a winner! The whole concept of cutting out that 30 minutes on the treadmill or elliptical was the best news I've heard all day. I love the idea of doing Burst Training. You would do high impact or high intensity training for 10 secs to 1 minutes (like climbing the stairs, swimming, jumping jacks, even laying on the floor throwing a tantrum) then you let your body recover. At first your rest period is 4 times as long as the work period, but as you get fitter, you can cut the ratio down until you are doing 30 seconds on 30 seconds off. This raises the heart rate and burns more calories than spending hours burning a low number of calories. Other things I loved about Fit Moms for Life:
  • This book was written for moms, not overweight middle-aged men. It relates everything to mom-type activities. It makes the book so much easier to relate to.
  • We learn to change our minds first in order to change our bodies! Put yourself first, believe change is possible, get rid of negative influences and practice positive thinking are areas that mom's tend to put away when they have children. It's hard to take time for yourself, but it's so important.
  • There is a workbook/journal section for documenting your journey. Nothing helps you stick to you goals more than putting it in writing. Having a place to put your beginning and before pictures and measurements will help you see what you can and have accomplished.
  • There is a chapter dealing with creating a fit atmosphere for your whole family. My son needs a more active lifestyle! He learns to be a TV, computer and gaming boy by watching his parents. I need to take Dustin's advice and Keep Moving!
  • The book includes FREE Bonuses! Who doesn't love getting things for free? There are 2 video series, an audio Flat Stomach Coaching Series and downloadable report on How to Make this your Fittest Year Ever.
  • Dustin's Blog is a wealth of information. It highlights success stories, boot camps, Mama tones, supplements and more. Visit his blog here.
Overall, Mom Does Reviews gives Fit Moms for Life 5 out of 5 stars. I highly recommend this book to any mom who feels like they can't get their old body back. You can do it with Fit Moms!

Fit Moms For Life Giveaway!! Ends 3/20 CLOSED

I'm helping promote a giveaway for a great book, Fit Moms For Life.  Here is Penny Pincher Jenny's review:

I am so excited to bring you this review and giveaway! I was selected to receive a copy of Dustin Maher's Fit Moms for Life. I have had the chance to work with Dustin in his mommy blogger contest and look forward to participating in that next month. Being able to physically read and markup his book, (Yes I am one of those readers) has been a blast and it was extremely refreshing. I have been in a deep fitness rut/funk for a while and as I have shared with you before am currently trying to lose weight. If you haven't heard of Dustin Maher before I recommend his website and you can read and see the results of his program.
There are so many things to say about this book. The number one thing about it is it will tie into your life somehow, no matter your stage of your life. I really felt like someone was sitting there encouraging rather than lecturing me with his dialogue through the whole thing. His down home Minnesotan boy persona shines throughout the whole book and makes it an easy read. I have read so many books on the topic of fitness, weight loss, and what not that seemed like a drill sergeant or your dad was standing there telling you what to do. The book goes into huge detail on so many keys to a healthy life. These are the ones that really hit home for me personally.
  • Planning - I can vouch that if I don’t plan it goes down the drain and I get nowhere. Then I wonder why I even bothered.
  • Recording progress - So often the change is little so that you will get discouraged if you can’t visually see yourself changing. You can look back and see the inches falling off on paper, the habits changing, and your abilities improving.
  • Don’t be a slave to cardio and how to work out at home with weights affordably.
  • The importance of me time. If you just laughed and said, "What's That?" it’s a sign this book is meant for you.
  • It’s a way of life not a diet
  • How to get the kids involved and how to help your children live a healthy life style without the “d word”
  • What to eat and not to eat and how to work it into the schedule of a mom
Now what really makes this book hit home is the stories from Dustin’s clients. Moms, as a whole, relate to other moms' struggles so I loved being able to read how so many of these women were in my position and now look the way they look. When I first got the book, I had set it on the table, face down for some reason, and happened to glance over. In nice red letters by Dustin’s face is “Who is taking care of YOU?”, that was a reality check for me. Now for the fun part, I was given a copy of the book to review and one to giveaway! All of the opinions in this review are of my very own thoughts and opinions on this book!! Enter on the rafflecoptor below- all entries will be verified.
