SWAGO is Back on Swagbucks

It’s time for you to unwrap your SB bonus this holiday season courtesy of Swagbucks. This month’s Winter-themed Swago board offers a possible 300 SB ($3) Bonus!

What is SWAGO you ask? It’s a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. When you complete a task, watch that square change colors. You can then redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you’ve never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great way to learn how to use the site, and it’s a lot of fun!

Here’s what you need to know to get your 300 SB Bonus:

  • Swago will begin on Monday, January 16th at 9:01am PDT/12:01pm EDT, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value.
  • Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • The game ends Monday, January 23rd at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

I will be receiving swagbucks for this post. No other compensation has been received.

It Work! Has Greens? Apparently and I’m Trying Them

I’m always looking for ways to help me increase my water intake, add some different flavors to my food plan without getting off track, and if it’s packed full of things that are good for me…of course, that’s even better!

I introduced you to Delayne Thompson of It Works! She is the one that first mentioned “Greens” to me.  Honestly I wasn’t sure what she was talking about. All I knew about It Works! was the wraps and I had never tried them. I was reading on her site about the Greens.  She told me how I could get the 40% discount through It Works! I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pay for another health product that may or may not work for me but after reading about it, especially with the 40% discount, I just had to try it.

I got It Works! Greens berry. They also have a citrus flavor.  I got a 30 day supply container since I wasn’t sure if I would like it.  I got this small container and thought “How can this be a 30 day supply?” But it comes with a tiny scooper that you only need two of in 8 oz of water.  The description on the site doesn’t do it justice for how many awesome ingredients are in the container.

It’s non-GMO, only 10 calories, 250 mg of potassium, no fat, 50 mg of magnesium, then comes the huge list of healthy ingredients.  A lot of herbs, fruits, and vitamins/minerals …all natural flavors.  A few things that really excited me was that…as some of you know…I deal with ulcerative colitis.  I visit my GI doctor regularly and take my meds as prescribed.  I am always reading info about my condition from new studies, to new research and findings, to natural treatments. In a number of articles I read, I’ve seen aloe vera gel, marshmallow root, slippery elm bark, and turmeric root come up. It Works! Greens has all those ingredients. But there are tons more like: broccoli, spirulina (which I had taken previously), alfalfa, blackberry fruit, blueberry fruit, cranberry, and so much more.

I just received it yesterday and tried it for the first time then.  Initially I thought it tasted ok. The color is a darker green color in the water. I just mixed it in a regular glass.  Today I put it in a shaker and measured out exactly 8 oz of water. It tasted way better today. I think I used too much water yesterday to  mix and it didn’t get the full flavor then.  Also I think the shaking helped to mix it more evenly.  Today, I’m rather enjoying my It Works! Green berry. I’m interested to see how this effects my body after 30, 60, and then 90 days.

If you want to give It Works! Greens or any other It Works! products a try, contact Delayne Thompson. Her contact info is in my post here, and definitely read her story.  Tell her you found her from LuvSavingMoney.com

6 Days Into Beachbody on Demand, My Thoughts


Last year I did was introduced to Beachbody. I had coworkers and friends doing it and they saw results.  The one program in particular that kept coming up was 21 Day Fix.  The program came with dvd’s for daily 30 min workouts.  I’m thinking, ok I think I can find time for 30 minutes somewhere.  Then it came with color coded portion control containers and a book that tells you exactly what you can eat, recipes, and tips.  Yes! A healthy eating guide just for me.  I didn’t want to count calories and figure out labels all day.  I’m a working mom of 4 who also happens to run a blog.  I don’t have time to do math equations just so I can eat!

So I started it Jan 1 last year and did it steady for 4 months.  I lost 12 lbs and 3 inches around my waist.  My thighs and butt didn’t jiggle anymore. Thanks to my awesome coach Shannon Butler she encouraged me to join challenge groups, gave out awesome recipes that broke the eating boredom, and is a great motivator.

After 4 months however I started to get bored with the same 7 day cycles. I ordered a different program that I had high hopes for (Beachbody no longer carries) and it just wasn’t what I thought it would be.  I didn’t want to put money into another program with fear I wouldn’t like it either. I eventually got so bored of doing the same exercises that I stopped doing them.  Then everything else fell like dominos.  Later in the year I remembered how good I felt and was mad at myself for not continuing.  I gained all the weight back and then some.

The end of December I realized I could do a 30 day FREE trial of Beachbody on Demand and it changed my whole perspective.  Yes my coach brought it up to me before but I didn’t listen. If you are not sure where you want to start, what program might be right for you, etc Beachbody on Demand is an awesome place to start. For 30 days you can try out any or all the programs you want.  See what works for you.  After 30 days either cancel or continue.  You can follow a program like 21 Day Fix if you want to or mix it up.

I’m on day 6, I’m having so much fun with . I  had always wanted to try Brazil Butt Lift but was afraid to buy it in case I didn’t like it but it was fun and I definitely felt the burn!  Today I tried Hip Hop Abs. I didn’t really think I was going to like it but I had so much fun I forgot I was exercising. I’m definitely feeling it now though.

If you’ve already purchased Beachbody programs they’ll show up under “Purchased Programs” just click that link at the top of the screen and it will show you’ll all the programs you own and you can do them from Beachbody on Demand. There are apps for your phone and tablets too so if you go on vacation or wherever you still have access to your workouts.

They also have a program called “Fixate” with Autumn and Bobby Calabrese that shows you how to make healthy recipes.  I’m so craving the wasabi cream cheese Salmon burger now!

I use Beachbody on Demand with Amazon Fire Stick but you can use it through several options. Beachbody on Demand is a great place to start if you’re not sure what program you want to try. The Beachbody on Demand 30 day free trial makes sure you don’t waste any money on programs that might not be for you.

Try Beachbody on Demand with me for 30 days.  You’ll need a good coach to help you with recipe ideas and encouragement.  My coach Shannon Butler is a Diamond Beachbody coach. She knows her stuff. And check out Shannon’s story here.
