Since launching this blog, a lot of people have reached out to me and seem genuinely interested in learning new cooking methods, integrating exercise into their daily routine and trying new products. An overwhelming majority of people are wanting to lead a healthy lifestyle but just don't know where to start, nor do they have a support group to keep them motivated.
I've been a member of a few different gift swaps in the past but none could satisfy my inner health nut-- and then it hit me one day- What about creating a swap for fitness focused individuals?!
I bounced the idea of starting "Fit Friends" off of a few different people and they all said, "Yes! Do it! That sounds like fun!"
I've listened to their advice and I will now be hosting FIT FRIENDS!
What is 'Fit Friends'?
Fit Friends is a monthly penpal program that links people who are on a journey to healthy living. Every month, participants will be assigned a Friend to whom they will send a care package to via snail mail.
How do I sign up?
CLICK HERE AND ENTER YOUR INFORMATION by the 4th of the month at 10pm/central. Within in 72 hours of your initial sign up, I will confirm your participation. If you do not receive a confirmation email after the 72 hour window, please email me at: mamasbellyblog (at) gmail (dot) com. On the 6th of the month, an email will be sent out that contains the match-ups. Participants will have 48 hours to contact their partner to exchange mailing addresses and other information. There will be a $20 spending limit. Boxes will be mailed out by the 12th of the month.
All Packages Must Contain The Following:
-An Inspirational Piece: This can be a quote that you find to be encouraging, a letter with positive words, maybe a news article you stumbled across that made you feel good-- anything to send encouragement to your Fit Friend!
-Something Edible: Healthy snacks only! This swap is not for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (though tasty) etc. We are thinking healthy here! Homemade treats are welcome but be sure to ask your pen pal if they are comfortable receiving homemade goods (because some people are not!)
*Everything is else is up to you! Get creative!
Have a fitness DVD at home that you just aren't using? Pass it on to your fit friend!
Have you eyed up a product at the store but are too scared to try it yourself? Have your Fit Friend try it for you and tell you what you think of it!
Write up a favorite recipe!
The possibilities are endless!
