Wellness Week, Del Monte and 500 pairs of kicks

Ok ok, we knew it wouldn’t happen right? I mean 2 posts in one day in the midst of crazy is near impossible.

I knew that March was National Nutrition Month but I just recently learned that this week is Wellness Week. Does this mean I get the week off to go get spa treatments?!? I WISH!

 As I mentioned in my last post Del Monte is hosting a giveaway in celebration of National Nutrition Month. I am in no way connected with the giveaway and I am not receiving and fruits and/or veggies from them for promoting this. All questions should be directed to them.

The deets are as follows:

In an effort to motivate people to get healthy by exercising and eating more fruits and vegetables, Del Monte Fresh Produce will give away 500 pairs of sneakers and 10 Nintendo Wii New Super Mario Bros. Pack game consoles and Wii Zumba Fitness during March to Del Monte Fresh Produce Facebook fans.
 
The “500 Sneaker March Giveaway,” hosted on the Del Monte Fresh Produce Facebook page, will randomly award 500 sneakers to Del Monte Facebook fans who enter the contest and ten (10) Wii packages to people who get two (2) of their friends to sign up.
 
To Win Sneakers:
 
Step 1: “Like” Del Monte Fresh Produce by visiting http://www.facebook/delmontefreshproduce
 
Step 2:  Enter sweepstakes and sign the pledge to make at least half your plate fruits and vegetables and exercise more frequently.  You will automatically be entered to win one of 500 pairs of sneakers.
  
All entrants will be encouraged to sign a pledge to exercise at least three times a week for thirty minutes and, as the USDA recommends, make half their plate fruits and vegetables.
 
Del Monte Fresh Produce is committed to providing consumers with quality fresh fruits and vegetables, which are key components in leading a healthy lifestyle. The “500 Sneaker March Giveaway” was created as a way to encourage Del Monte Fresh Produce fans to exercise as well.

I am going to have to check this out again to see what kind of sneakers we can all win. If nothing else I love to see a company holding a contest that promotes HEALTH!
 
It is still raining here in SoCal so it looks like I will be hitting up the TM at lunch. I have a 15k race this weekend!
 
What are your exercise plans today? Anyone running?

  1. I can’t believe that it’s still raining down there! Well, at least it looks like sun is on the forecast for the weekend. I’m running it, too!

    Monday is a rest day, but will be heading out tomorrow for a short 4 miler.

    Thanks for the giveaway info!

  2. NorCal isn’t looking much better… the weather can’t decide if it wants to rain or be nice and sunny… boooo! Bring on the SUN!!! I’ll be running today out on the cliffs if it’s nice this afternoon; but if it starts raining again, I’ll probably go the gym and hop on the elliptical.

  3. Hey Haute Mama!

    I just signed up for the Del Monte Giveaway (and started your blog) and thought I’d share with you an app I just started using to help me get out and running/walking everyday and keep my commitment I made during the Del Monte Giveaway.

    It’s called You’re On! and it’s an app that helps you keep good habits by sharing and completing challenges with friends. Try it out and let me know what you think! You can download it here: http://www.changeanything.com/youre-on-app.
