#SurFitArmadillo: A New Fitness Contest for One of My Favorite Kitchen Tools
It’s Tighten + Tone Tuesday! Today is an exciting day, because I have a new contest to announce: The #SurFitArmadillo Surpahs Kitchen Scale Giveaway. If you’re a newsletter subscriber, you already know about the contest (feeling left out? get an the A-List HERE). If this is all news to you, here’s what you need to know:
This contest is a giveaway for the following Surpah’s kitchen scale, valued at $35:
The contest will be organized as raffle. You can enter as many times as you’d like now through Tuesday, September 2nd. Instead of having to buy tickets to enter the raffle, you’ll enter by sharing photos of yourself caught being healthy on your favorite form of social media. Tag your photos #SurFitArmadillo and make sure you’re following your favorite armadillo so I can find you. Here are the current places Fit Armadillo gets social:
You don’t need to be in your photos, but I’d love to see your beautiful face if you’re good at taking selfies. You can enter as many times as you can give proof of yourself being healthy throughout the day. Some photo ops to try: drinking water, eating healthy, and working out.
Why would you want to win this contest? Besides the fact that it’s fun to get free stuff, a kitchen scale it a pretty handy tool. I swear by mine. It’s awesome for helping with portion control, which is key if you’re trying to lose weight, but it can also make cooking a lot easier.
In Houston, TX it’s pretty humid these days and when I try to measure things like flour, my kitchen scale is waaaaay more accurate than using a measuring cup. It’s also an extremely less messy way for me to cook (maybe that’s just measuring cup user error on my part?).
Because portion control is so important to healthy weight loss (it’s a huge component of one of the three keys that I shared last week), I want to make sure you’re set up for success even if you aren’t the lucky winner of this contest. That’s why I’m sharing a printable pdf file with portion guide tips:
This page comes right out of a Fit Armadillo® meal plan. In the print out, you’ll find basic guidelines that help you compare common measurements to common household objects. A 1/3 cup portion is the size of a tennis ball. A baseball? About a 1 cup portion. If you are using a fitness app to track what you’re eating, you know that you can’t just type in that you had cereal for breakfast. To make sure your recordings are accurate, you need to include the amount of cereal you ate as well. If you don’t want to carry around measuring cups in your purse, this sheet is perfect for you!
Of course, this guide is just so you have a portable way to track portions. I know you are gong to win the #SurFitArmadillo contest, because you’ll be catching yourself being healthy multiple times a day.
*Disclaimer: Surpahs donated this lovely scale for you to win after I told them how much I loved my scale-pretty cool, right? 🙂
