Win Free Groceries

* In the interest of full disclosure, I was given a $30 gift card to Kroger's Grocery Store, provided by General Mills, Krogers, and My Blog Spark. I received no other compensation, and any opinions expressed here are strictly my own.*


Recently My Blog Spark contacted me to see if I would like help in eating healthier and losing weight. This couldn't have come at a better time, since I was starting to work out more and snack less. I knew I couldn't get swimsuit ready, but I could do something to feel better about myself.

Since Krogers is a big supporter of The Biggest Loser show, and provides a lot of the General Mills healthy products used on the show, they would provide me with a $30 gift card to try some of those products out.

When I recieved it in the mail I went shopping. There is a big selection at my local Kroger store of General Mills cereals, of which I chose Chocolate Cheerios, since they are low in fat and may help reduce my cholesteral levels. I also chose Fiber One Granola Bars, which are filling and taste great too!

As for cereal, you could also choose Total. It comes in a variety of flavors that can also help keep you on the healthy track. Those are just a small sampling of the variety of food that General Mills offers.

Now once you have decided to take off a few pounds and eat a bit healthier, you can go to the Pound for Pound Challenge website to help you even further. For every pound you pledge to lose, they will donate 14 cents to the local food bank of your choice to help those in need. I won't tell you how muchI pledged to lose, but just let me say that I feel great that my local food bank will be getting a substantial amount of food!

However I did not pledge an unreasonable amount. I kept my weight loss goal realistic, as I'm hoping you will.

General Mills, Krogers and My Blog Spark was also kind enough to provide me with another $30 gift card to Krogers for one lucky reader of my blog! Who wouldn't like free groceries??
I hope that you will buy and try the healthy General Mills products, but if you don't, we won't come get you!

Ways to Win:

1) MANDATORY - tell me what you do to stay healthy, and which General Mills product helps you with that.

the following good for one additional entry each! and they MUST BE in seperate comments!

2) follow my blog
3) blog about my giveaway, and the pound for pound challenge.

Good luck, and this contest will end at Midnight (CST) on Monday June 7, 2010.

I try to exercise regularly and eat plenty of fruits & vegetables. Yoplait Frozen Smoothies from General Mills are a great way to get your daily fruit serving.

Exercise is on the doctor's list of NO-No's right now, but granola bats & yogurt are always on my list.

Well, I'll be honest. I tried the Fiber One bars, but since they had an unwanted, noisy side effect on my digestive system, I had to stop eating them. They were very good though!
I also like the Chocolate Cheerios, they make a great "I need chocolate NOW!" snack.
Congrats on getting to do the contest!
