Fitness Report and McDonald's - Be Our Guest - Food Giveaway

The Legacy of Home

This is the third of four posts from our Fitness Kick-off project. I have joined with 9 other bloggers to share progress and activities on staying fit (or getting fit) before the New Year.

I also have a great giveaway to offer you, from McDonald's restaurant,  and will tell you about it in just a few minutes.

Here is my Fitness Report:

Monday morning - 30 minute workout. (Included target toning with light weights)

Monday evening - had an accident. Slammed my foot into a chair in the dark and caused some painful damage.

Tuesday - exhausted. But planned to do some  light exercises on the floor. I never did get around to it. Decided to rest my foot instead.

Wednesday - foot still bruised and a little swollen, but much better. Took a trip into the city and walked all over the place. Ran upstairs instead of taking elevators, ran through rainy parking lots. Had lots of energy. Did good.

Thursday - brisk walking during errands. No specific exercises.

Friday - (today). I woke up too late to exercise. But will do a few light target toning exercises later. Foot it still damaged but pain is almost gone.


* My ongoing fitness goal is to workout daily and to replace snacks with more nourishing foods. I don't have any weight to lose, but at my age, I need to keep an eye on it so it doesn't creep up!

* Remember, we all have different health struggles and approaches to fitness and nutrition. I would love to hear what you are doing to stay fit! Please share in the comments section and then visit the other bloggers to cheer them on!

Now for the Giveaway!

I love the Ronald McDonald House Charity. My oldest son and I stayed in one, several years ago, when he was undergoing medical care. It was a tremendous comfort and a lovely place.

Every time we go to a McDonald's restaurant drive-through, we see a slot to donate to their charity. It makes it easy and convenient to help.  What they are doing is amazing!  The home we stayed in was beautiful and the volunteers were so helpful and friendly.

I realize we don't commonly think of McDonald's as a healthy place to eat. But the reality is that families today are often on-the-go, and going to the drive through has become normal.  We can make good food choices and also make sure we are eating balanced, nutritious meals at home.

I have a nice prize package to offer you, from McDonald's. It includes 15 "Be Our Guest" food cards for free items:

5 - free Asian Salads.
5 - free Fruit and Maple Oatmeals.
5 - free Egg McMuffins.


 Would you like a chance to win this "Be Our Guest" package from McDonald's? I have one package available for a giveaway.  One winner will receive all 15 cards.  All you have to do is leave me a comment.

It was rare we ever had McDonalds. We lived pretty far away from one and only got to a town that had one once in a while. The only thing I really remember was that if we went to McDonald's, we got it to go. That always made me sad, I always wanted to eat in.

Thank you for an opportunity to win! I think I would share my win with my own Mom, she works close to a McDonald's and would love the oatmeals. :0)

Briana said...

Ouch! I'm sorry about your foot. I dropped a 10 pound weight on mine on Monday. Must have been a Monday thing.

I don't know how; but, I nearly missed this giveaway. Thank you so much for the not a fan books. We gave one to our pastor for Christmas. He is looking forward to reading it. My husband has just started reading ours, too. Now, I think that he's going to do a giveaway on his blog for the last copy.

God bless you!
I hope you feel better soon.

A childhood memory I have of McDonalds is stopping with our family at a fast food restaurant and being given a dollar (yes, one dollar) to go next door to McDonalds to buy myself a hamburger, fries, and a drink. This was in, perhaps, 1973 or so. Oh, and it wasn't a kid's meal either! A dollar. :)

Thanks again!
