The last few months I’ve written about the Countdown to a Better You program, which has helped me stay on track with diet and fitness, and has kept me motivated for summer! A few things, along with taking good care of my body and exercising, has been  making good food choices. I’ve set some goals with fitness, drinking more water, hula-hooping 10 minutes a day, and regular weight training at the gym. My workout partner and I just celebrated 1 year with weights at the gym. I made a yummy juice consisting of pear, celery, ginger and cucumber. Delicious!

So when Tyson Foods asked me to team up with their Tyson® Grilled and Ready® brand to participate in a Countdown to a Better You program, I jumped on board. I’m already disciplined with a workout plan of weights and cardio 3x a week, and then running the other 2 days, but any kind of NEW accountability helps! Plus, I like to encourage others with a healthy lifestyle.

If you’re motivated by reading blogs, working out with your friends, new healthy recipes, or the fact that summer is coming – then head over to the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Facebook page and check out the Countdown to a Better You tab. You can follow along on their page with guilt-free meal ideas.

Here are 2 ways to participate in the Countdown to a Better You:

1. For those of you who signed up for the Countdown to a Better You, it’s time to start thinking about how you want to reward yourself! The program ends on the first day of summer (June 21), which means you need to redeem your UPCs by then. To redeem your UPCs for you reward, simply visit the Countdown to a Better You tab on Facebook and follow the steps!

2. For an added bonus, you can also enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win one of 10 grand prizes – $500 VISA gift cards!

I love this time of year with so many guilt-free recipes to enjoy! This one is really yummy, but I’ll eat anything with fresh basil! Enjoy!
