How Our Family Commited to Fit With The Subway® Commit To Fit™ Pledge Contest #SUBWAYFreshSwap
Although our family strives to eat as healthy as we can and to make time for daily exercise, sometimes we don't always get it right and sometimes we fall off the wagon. However, we have no problem dusting ourselves off and trying to getting back on track when that happens. If you do something new often enough, then it becomes a new habit and the hard work pays off by having a healthy new habit. I often chat with our kids about how fueling the body for activity and learning is such an important task, and when the body is fueled properly, you not only perform better, but you also feel better too. And just like any busy family, there are times when we don't get home to eat properly, so we are glad to have the option of choosing SUBWAY as a healthier alternative to fast food meals. We love loading up on vegetables for more nutrients and choosing whole grains for increasing fiber. I often add some fresh fruit from home for dessert and we call it a good meal!
SUBWAY® Restaurants is encouraging Canadians to take the Commit To Fit™ Pledge and commit to leading a healthier, active lifestyle by making great food and lifestyle choices and swapping old habits for new healthier habits and active living.
Our family took the Commit To Fit™ Pledge and here are the old habits that we are swapping out for new habits this month:
1. Swapping juice for water more often.
2. Swapping 1/2 hour of TV for an extra 1/2 hour of sleep at night.
3. Swapping bread or rolls at dinner for a fresh salad.
4. Swapping sitting around after supper each night for a walk.
5. Swapping pizza or burgers for subs loaded with vegetables for an easy dinner when life is busy.
Subway Canada's Facebook page. When you take the SUBWAY® Commit To Fit™ Pledge, you will automatically be entered to win $10,000 cash plus a $500 SUBWAY® cash card. Once you've taken the Pledge, you can track your progress by logging your fresh swaps and activities online in the categories of Nutrition, Exercise and Wellness. Additional SUBWAY® $250 cash cards will be awarded monthly to those who log their fresh swaps and activities. The sweepstakes are open between May 1, 2014 and October 31, 2014, with the Grand Prize Winner being announced on or around November 17, 2014.
With the warmer weather here, getting outside is easier than ever, and with lots of fresh local fruits and vegetables available soon, now is a great time to have a family discussion about committing to some healthy new habits and swapping out old bad habits with some new goals that support healthy living. And SUBWAY® Restaurants wants to help you achieve this goal with their Commit To Fit™ Pledge Contest. And whether you commit to new eating habits, exercise or wellness goals, any change, whether big or small, is a step in the right direction to creating a healthier and more active family.
