When you are starting a fitness journey, the only other place more confusing than the gym is the grocery store. It’s easy to talk about things on an ingredient lists and bulk bin shopping with your personal trainer, it’s quite another to remember it all as you’re making a mad dash through the grocery store after work. Your habit of  grabbing a frozen meal or quick comfort food kicks in when your short on time but you know you need to form new habits to achieve your goals. You know what you’ve been eating has gotten you to where you are. You know to be different you have to do things differently.

Navigating the grocery store is just like navigating the gym:

  1. You need a plan.
  2. You need a foundation of the basics.
  3. You need to focus on things that will give you the biggest bang for you buck.

I would love to take you all of you with me on my Saturday grocery trips but I just don’t think that would be practical. (Although I love to post photos of my Farmers Market Finds on Instagram).

I CAN take ONE of you. And all you have to do is make a donation to the American Heart Association.

I am going to give a guided grocery store tour to one lucky local (sorry only open to Springfield, MO area residents) reader. The winner will receive:

  • A 30-minute pre-shopping planning session.
  • A guided grocery tour at either Mama Jean’s Natural Market or Hy-vee (the winner will choose).
  • A $25 gift card at your chosen story to help cover your purchases.

All it takes to be eligible to win is to make a donation to the American Heart Association. To donate click here (or the donation button below) and make sure you include your name, phone number and email in the message box of the donation screen. Your donation can be of any amount, but the bigger the better! The cutoff to enter is 5 pm Friday February 6 so I can present your donations at the Heart Ball Rock the Red Bash. The lucky donor will be notified via the contact information provided and is responsible for the cost of any purchases above and beyond the gift certificate provided.

If you know anyone who might be interested in this unique opportunity and supporting the American Heart Association please share it with her. Please share it on your Facebook page and Twitter accounts. If you can’t donate you can still participate. Wear Red on February 6 of National Wear Red Day and Springfield Goes Red. Spread the word so we can raise awareness for Heart Month and raise funds to fight the number one killer of women.
