Quantcast

On January 1 of this year, I launched the 2014 Fitness Challenge here on THE ROCK FATHER. After years of leading a lifestyle that wasn't exactly great for my body, I started a gradual change three years ago when I quit smoking, and this year the time finally came to really start leading a healthy lifestyle. I've changed my diet, count calories, and now hit the gym 4-5 nights per week. One important change has been making sure not to skip breakfast (which I have a habit of forgetting to eat), and in doing so, I've rekindled my love of cereal - something that started last Fall when I first mentioned trying Silk Almondmilk after not drinking any kind of milk since 1989. Recently, the folks at Silk got in touch about their new Silk Almondmilk Blends - and one of them fit right into my routine: Protein + Fiber. Can Almondmilk rock? I say "YES!"

As I'm currently in the midst of my personal Fitness Challenge this year (down 25 lbs) and have Little Finley still in diapers, I was bummed to miss an event I was invited to in Chicago last week - one where Celebrity Fitness Trainer (and Mom) Nikki Glor and Huggies Little Movers were set to show off some cool moves for parents and their "Little Movers" alike. But there is a silver lining! Huggies and Nikki have provided me with the details on three new exercises to share with all of you here on THE ROCK FATHER - each containing benefits for baby, mom or dad, and from Huggies Little Movers. And a big bonus? One of you will receive a month's supply of Huggies Little Movers! Just enter the giveaway below for a shot at the prize!
