Good morning everyone! I have a treat in store for you all today; SlimKicker has kindly reached out to me and wants to offer one lucky Chelsea Eats Treats reader this awesome slow cooker:

slowcooker

When SlimKicker contacted me earlier this week, I knew I had read about the company somewhere, but couldn’t recall exactly what they did. After checking out the website for a couple of minutes, I saw that it’s a free website that motivates users to stay healthy by turning their diet and fitness goals into a game with points, rewards, and challenges. Like a regular game, the challenges start out easy, and gradually become harder, earning you more points. SlimKicker’s mission is to help you turn your diet and exercise goals into lifestyle changes, which I think is awesome! If you tend to get bored with your healthy lifestyle and you love competitive games, you should really try it out!

In addition to the games, SlimKicker also has lots of recipe ideas for various diets such as P90X, Medifast and LeanGains. If you’re following a diet with specific requirements you should look at their recipes for inspiration.

So, now back to what you really care about: the slow cooker. SlimKicker is looking for ideas for new challenges they can use for their website. An example of a previous challenge is that users have to give up soda for a week. You guys are a pretty creative bunch, so I’m sure you can think of some great challenges. Just leave me a sentence or two explaining what the challenge is, and SlimKicker will select a winner. Remember, the winner of this challenge will not be chosen randomly; SlimKicker will pick the entry that will work best for their audience and website (so do some researching if you need to).

Unfortunately entries are limited to U.S. residents only. The giveaway will be open for one week and will close on Thursday, June 14. Get those challenges in and good luck!

  1. Haha this probably sounds silly, but I’ve been challenging myself to do “,mini workouts” during commercial breaks! I’ll try to do a plank or burpees or some other challenging exercise for 2-3 minutes during commercials!!

  2. My boyfriend and I love to eat out together, which can be problematic for my waistline. Recently, I’ve been challenging myself to pick the three things I want most on the menu and look up the calories for each and then chose the one with the least. (It’s even easier at places with the calories right on the menu!) This helps me to still be able to enjoy my dining experience by eating something that I really want but helps me steer clear of unnecessary calories.

  3. I like to try to add instead of subtract. Like add an extra serving of veg to a meal you normally wouldn’t (like breakfast). Another fun thing my boyfriend and I are trying to do is mini outside dates (summing, hiking with the dog, golf) its cheaper and more fun than going to a movie.

  4. I love carbs, but my waistline doesn’t! When I needed to lose weight, I knew I needed to limit carbs, but couldn’t give them up completely, because as we all know, depriving yourself of things you love makes you less likely to succeed in your goal, and way more likely to cheat or give up! Therefore, I limited carbs to one meal a day, and only one portion. I’m not talking about the carbs in fruit and vegetables, I’m talking about bread/crackers/potatoes etc. I think a good challenge would be to limit carbs to 1 meal a day, and 1 portion of that carb for a week! You still get to feel happy when you have your carb, but are still on your weight-loss goal because you aren’t indulging the whole day!

  5. My challenge would “Whole Wheat Week” where you replace all refined flour products with whole grains. Swap out white bread, pasta, rice, cereal, crackers and baked goods with whole wheat alternatives to gain more nutrients and stay fuller longer to help you stick to your diet plan!

  6. A good challenge for me is to do 100 pushups in a week, but each day make it more than yesterday.

  7. A good challenge for me is to eat more veggies. I always eat protein or whole wheat with no problems but, veggies is! Lol. So, I challenge myself to eat veggie 2 times a day for a week. So lunch and dinner would be my 2 times a day.

  8. I have been challenging myself to eat home-cooked meals instead of going out to eat so much. I started by bringing my lunch to work instead of going out every day, which saves both time and money! To make it more fun, one day a week me and my co-workers cook something at work together. You’d be surprised at what we have made using just a slow-cooker and a microwave!

  9. I like to go out to eat for almost every meal of the day. My co-workers love to order food and I’ll admit I’m one of the few that always suggests it but these last couple of days I’ve made or cooked every meal I’ve had. I want to try and keep this up until Friday and leave my restaurant eating for the weekends. I love the satisfaction of eating a home cooked meal after a day of work and the gym. Going good so far since I’ve started looking at different blogs and recipes. Lifestyle change on it’s way!!

  10. I challenge myself to walk more during the day! I use a pedometer to keep track of my steps and try to talk one more step than the day before. A slow cooker would help incorporate healthy eating into my day!
