Pay Fit Forward: The Power of Partners! #Giveaway

Disclosure: I am working with My Fit Foods on the Pay Fit Forward Campaign. All opinions are my own. If I hated it, I'd tell you.

There is power in partners. Great partners make life better: A spouse who is the Yin to your Yang, a co-worker who helps balance work with fun or a workout partner who keeps you motivated to move.

Workout Partners

A workout partner can provide accountability, motivation and even push you to work harder with a little friendly competition. Working out with a friend can feel more like a social hour than a (dreaded) workout hour. Maintaining healthy habits can be easier and more fun with a partner.

When the alarm on my phone blares from the other room at 5:30am for my morning workout I usually have the same thought. (explicative removed.) 

Most days all I want to do is sleep....just ten more minutes...then ten more...for the next hour. But more often than not, I drag myself out to bed to take care of business. You know why? One of the reasons is that I have an early morning workout partner. We work out in my ShredShed and if I cancel on my friend, then I know she will miss her workout that morning too. I don't want to let her down.

Sometimes we are all too willing to cancel on ourselves, but we don't want to disappoint our friends. I love the accountability of a morning workout partner. I love catching up with my friend while catching up on my fitness. We have fun together in the morning and get in a good sweat!

Pay Fit Forward!

I've been thinking about partners because I am partnering with My Fit Foods to promote their Pay Fit Forward campaign! Pay Fit Forward is a promotion that My Fit Foods is running every Friday in September. When you purchase a My Fit Foods meal, you get a second meal to "Pay Fit Forward" to a friend or My Fit Foods can donate your second meal to a local food charity. How great is that! You can help inspire and motivate a friend towards healthy eating with a free meal or you can partner with a food charity to help the needy. There are only two Fridays left in the promotion!

Partners Circuit!

I hosted the fitness portion of an event at My Fit Foods on Lovers Lane this week! We had a fun group of bloggers, friends and foodies who came by the Lovers Lane My Fit Foods location. We worked up an appetite during my 30 minute partners-themed circuit workout before enjoying a delicious My Fit Foods meal to refuel!

Nutrition Coach Q&A

We were all hungry after the workout and ready to dig into these delicious healthy My Fit Foods meals! I had the Power Bowl with quinoa and sweet potatoes. It was so delicious and filling, I was blown away!

The Q&A was hosted by Kim of Kim's Cravings and we learned a little more about the healthy options that My Fit Foods offers. The Lovers Lane location even has a drive through! My Fit Foods offers fresh, nutritionally-balanced, portion-controlled, ready-to-eat Gluten-free meals and snacks. They take all the guess work out of meal planning and healthy eating and provide free meal planning services with a nutrition coach.
