Fall in Love with Healthy Living!
Being healthy does not always come easy to me. Believe me, I wish it did! I have to make myself get out there and run, walk, or do yoga. I have to choose to eat healthy. When I feel tired, I can especially say, “Oh! Bring on the chocolate!” and try and catch myself to make sure I don’t go overboard. Genetically, I am a small person but that doesn’t mean I’m a healthy person. When I was pregnant with Brie and found out I had gestational diabetes, it was like a small sentence where I had to be quite vigilant to stay on track with my diet and exercise each and every day. I found it very difficult having a high risk pregnancy tied to my diet, but it did cause me to change a lot of my habits when it came to eating and I have to continue to work hard to keep them. It can be strange to explain to someone that I am at risk for Type II diabetes by how I look, but the risk is there. I eat a certain way not to lose weight, but to eat in a way that doesn’t spike my blood sugar. I know what it is like to constantly monitor my sugar levels and life is much simpler if I do things to promote a healthy lifestyle and keep diabetes at bay. Probably the most eye-opening thing for me was learning how my body responds to carbohydrates (something I love but apparently my body does not) and cutting down on that, especially for snacks, can be a struggle. Especially during the holidays, I love and crave Hawaiian rolls, which to me is like a sweet manna from heaven (ha!), so I do like to keep various healthy snacks around to make eating right a lot easier for me. It does help!
Let me tell you about the Bulu Box. It is a monthly subscription box that is like having a personal trainer and a nutritionist as a best friend. Every month you receive a box of healthy items that is shipped to your door for just $10. Unlike a gym membership, I actually use the month’s 4-5 premium samples and find some great products that will fit in with my own lifestyle. Some of them I review right here on Momma’s Bacon! The cool thing is, you get to review your own products and if you share your opinions on each month’s samples through Bulu Box’s surveys, you can get up to 50 Rewards Points (which equals $5 on their website!) and be able to use your Rewards Points in their online shop to purchase more of your favorite items. It’s actually a really fun way to stay motivated throughout the year to be healthy! I’ll talk logistics of the Bulu Box, tell you what was in this month’s box, and give you a coupon code to get a discount on your very first box if you think this subscription sounds like it will work for you. With the New Year slowly creeping up on us, it is also a great gift to yourself or a loved one who wants to get or maintain a healthy 2016! Let’s get started.
The Definitive Guide to Bulu Box
Bulu Box is the best way to discover the health, nutrition and weight loss products that are right for YOU! Here’s how it works:
1. TRY SAMPLES
You’ll LOVE discovering new products, but just as important as finding your new healthy faves is seeing which products don’t work for you.
Try 4-5 samples based on your profile before buying full-size so you don’t waste your money.
2. EARN POINTS
Speaking of money, want some more? Each month you can earn up to 100 Rewards Points (that’s $10!) just for subscribing and sharing your thoughts. Log in to your account to fill out your sample surveys about the products you just tried.
3. CASH OUT
Once you’ve earned Rewards Points you can use them like actual cash towards a full-size purchase of your new favorite product. Some Bulugans even get their order completely free! How many points can you rack up?
