Live Healthy with Hood Calorie Countdown

“This post was sponsored by Hood as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.”

A few months ago I made the switch to Hood Calorie Countdown and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made, you can see the reason why here. With 100 calories or 33% fewer calories than traditional whole milk, Hood Calorie Countdown has been my secret weapon for a better body and to live healthy while still enjoying a dairy beverage.

In our family, we make it a point that our kids are living an active and healthy lifestyle. All of my 3 kids are into sports and for me it’s important to watch what they eat and they get enough rest so that they’re always in tip-top shape.

My eldest plays soccer and runs cross country. Although he has always been aware of healthy living, recently he became more health conscious when it comes to his diet and his routine. We decided to bring him to the gym with us. It was for him to build his muscles and work on his endurance and strength. It was also a great way for us to bond together.

When it comes to his diet, we made a plan to cut out unnecessary calories on his diet so that he can pack on some that his body needed more such as protein. That is why we made the switch to low-calorie Hood Calorie Countdown found at Walmart. I highly suggest you give it a try and make sure to grab this Hood Calorie Countdown Coupon. Hood Calorie Countdown blends ultra-filtered milk with water, cream (and other ingredients) for a delicious and creamy taste. My son loves it! With Hood Calorie Countdown he can still enjoy delicious tasting dairy beverage with fewer calories, less sugar, and fewer carbohydrates than regular milk.

I bet you are wondering how traditional milk and the Hood Calorie Countdown compare.

These are the calories in a glass of milk:

Calorie Countdown Whole (per 1 cup serving)

100 calories or 33% fewer calories than traditional whole milk
3 grams carbs or 75% fewer carbs than traditional whole milk
3 grams sugar or 75% less sugar than traditional whole milk
Calorie Countdown 2% Reduced Fat (per 1 cup serving)
70 calories or 42% fewer calories than traditional whole milk
3 grams carbs or 75% fewer carbs than traditional whole milk
2 grams sugar or 75% less sugar than traditional whole milk
Calorie Countdown 2% Reduced Fat Chocolate (per 1 cup serving)
80 calories or 56% fewer calories than traditional chocolate milk
5 grams carbs or 67% fewer carbs than traditional chocolate milk
3 grams sugar or 75% less sugar than traditional chocolate milk

Calorie Countdown Fat-Free (per 1 cup serving)

35 calories or 56% fewer calories than traditional fat-free milk
3 grams carbs or 67% fewer carbs than traditional fat-free milk
3 grams sugar or 75% less sugar than traditional fat-free milk

Hood Calorie Countdown is made with dairy from farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones.

Hood offers several choices. They have Whole, 2%, Fat-Free and even a chocolate-flavored selection to pick from; you’ll never have to go without dairy again.

These are just some of the reasons why I decided to drink fewer calories. You can enjoy the nutritional benefits of this dairy beverage Hood Calorie Countdown provides you with 25% of your Daily Value for calcium and 15% of your Daily Value for Vitamin D (based on a 2,000-calorie diet) per one cup. Hood Calorie Countdown is a milky smooth dairy beverage that also has 42% fewer calories, 75% less sugar, and 67% fewer carbohydrates than milk.

I know that it sometimes seems impossible to make changes but it is easy to do if you start with replacing the food you eat with healthy options. You can increase your exercise by doing simple things like walking the stairs instead of taking elevators. If you live in a house with stairs challenge your self to walk up and down your stairs for 5 minutes and then increase it a minute each day until you get to 30 minutes. You do not need to go to a fancy gym to make an impact on your health. It also doesn’t have to cost a lot to make changes in your diet. Hood is offering a coupon at Walmart for their product. The creamy and satisfying taste will become part of your day.

A Weight Loss Tip I Missed

“This post was sponsored by Hood as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.”

People always say why do you worry about your weight? It isn’t that I worry. I do not. I have a strict one cupcake a day policy. The rest of the time I eat healthy meals and snacks, and I have a gym membership that I use four days a week. I used to weigh more, and I wasn’t happy not with my weight but with my energy level and my ability to keep up with my kids. I decided I could either continue down the path I was on, or I could make a change.

I decided to not focus on weight. I would focus on changing my habits. I would become more aware of my patterns and how they impacted my ultimate goal. That goal was to find balance and be able to keep up with my kids better.

What I can tell you is that a lot of people struggle with their weight. I struggled too. That was until I realized this trick. It made all the difference.

Trick you say?

Yes, I wrote that. I have one that I have never even thought of, and it makes my one cupcake a day event even sweeter.

What could be better than a cupcake?

Well, one served with a glass of dairy beverage.

I know. You have heard of dairy beverage and a cupcake before. You may have even had the two together although I doubt as often as myself. What you didn’t realize is there are more calories in a glass of dairy beverage than you thought.

That is why I made the switch to low-calorie Hood Calorie Countdown found at Walmart. I even have a coupon for it.Continue reading

Cheap Exercise Equipment

Cheap Exercise Equipment

crunch live fitness review

I think people automatically think about physical equipment when I make reference to Cheap Exercise Equipment however the thing I need most when exercising is someone to guide me. I need someone to push me. I usually go to the gym but when I travel or when the classes do not fit my schedule I found an alternative. I found online fitness classes. They are easy to organize, they fit my schedule, and they are varied for my ability and my likes.  They also help you to get real about your fitness goals and dispel  “The Lies people tell themselves”.

1) I am to weak, heavy, small, tall, short, young, old etc  to do that
2) I can’t afford the gym
3) People like me do not do that
4) I do not have time to get to the gym
5) I do not like people looking at me
6) I do not have gym clothes
7) I do not have any equipment
8) What do I do if I am in class and I do not like it
9) The gym near me doesn’t offer the class I want
10) The gym doesn’t have child care when I need it

Back to Balance – Getting Ready for a 10K Race

 

I love skinny cow iced coffee drinks

Finding a way to get my healthy eating and activity levels back to balance has always been hard for me. We all get off track whether it is the holidays or a family crisis, there are times in life when we just don’t take care of ourselves as well as we should. For me from past experiences I know what does and doesn’t work. Having a goal to get healthy is too vague and doesn’t give me anything concrete to work towards. Instead I know that I need a hard deadline and a very clear achievable goal. I also need a plan. Now it is time to lay out my game plan for achieving this goal. I need to focus on eating right, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep.
