A Giveaway from Subway – CLOSED

Gravity has finally caught up with me. My six year old son pointed to my belly the other day and asked if there was a baby in there.

No, son, I’m just fat.

His brothers were appalled. Apparently, I’ve instilled in them a sense of politesse when it comes to discussing someone’s weight and the spare tire she’s sporting around her waist.

But, I wasn’t mad. He was just being honest. Gravity has caught up with me. I’m sure that’s what it is.

I’m also sure that it could be a little overindulgence and a lack of exercise. So a few weeks ago, I started back on the exercise bike and for the whole week that I did it, I did feel a difference. I felt better, mentally and physically. And for some magical reason, I was a lot more productive during the day.

Go figure.

I’d heard about Subways’s Commit to Fit program from my friend Erin. She runs regularly — and is all buff — and can do marathons and things. So, when Subway offered me a “Commit to Fit” kit and one for you, too, I figured why not? We can both stand to get a little more fit, can we not?

My six year old says so.

Next Tuesday at 8pm, EST, Mamavation is also hosting a Subway twitter party to talk about all things fitness. Just follow the hashtag #commit2fit to participate.

And this weekend, you can win a little fitness love.

One LifeasMOM reader will receive a Commit to Fit kit which includes:

  • $10 SUBWAY card to try May’s featured sandwich, the Orchard Chicken Salad
  • Biggest Loser trainer, Jillian Michaels’ new fitness DVD Ripped in 30
  • $25 Champs gift card

To Enter:

Leave a comment about what you’re doing to get more fit.

This giveaway is open until Sunday, May 8th at 8 pm PST. Winner will be chosen at random and notified via email. Please respond within 48 hours to claim your prize. THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATS TO THE WINNER: jenlynnthomas@

    I’m eating more “whole foods” and eating out less.

  3. Trying to walk more & do walking video tapes. Thx

  4. I also did my first 5K in 20 years. If I can do it, so can you. Now to start working on the rest of the damage gravity has done!

  7. Now that it’s nice out, walks, walks, walks.

  8. I am pushing my double stroller all around town with my precious twin baby boys!

  9. Michelle says:

    Started the 10 minute trainer program and working on cleaning up our eating. To much junk and convenience food in the last few months.

  10. Whitney M says:

    I try to do a work out video a couple of times a week…usually a Jillian Micheals one! I would love to get a new one.

  11. I’m ‘starting all over again’, so I’m journaling my food for now. I’m also going to put my tread mill back in place and get back on it!

  12. trying to get back into eating whole grains and eating home more often got to get back on the way -I can see the 40 lbs I lost 18 months ago creeping back on me

  13. I am following Weight Watchers and training to run my first 5k!

  14. I start training soon for my first full marathon!

  15. I’m going to walk more and perhaps even start running again. I even plan on dusting off my pedometer to use as well.

  16. Kristy says:

    This is high on my list too.

    I am upping the fruits and veggies I eat, cutting down the sweets, upping the water, decreasing the coffee…and the half and half.

    I am also starting pilates again with a favorite DVD and when the weather warms up family after supper walks will start up again too.

  17. I just signed up for my first marathon. Yikes!

  18. Joanna Mattas says:

    I stopped smoking almost 4 months ago, after smoking for about 20 years. Now I am working on losing the 20 pounds I gained from stopping lol. Trying to be more mindful of what I am eating, and to focus on my food when I am eating instead of reading or watching tv while eating.

  19. Since I’m 6 mo pregnant I’m not really working on it right now, but I look forward to using a double jogging stroller when he’s born!

  20. I’ve cut sugar out of my diet – not just added sugar. I keep my daily sugar intake to 15 grams or less.

  22. Vanessa says:

    I am trying to keep my portions smaller and workout everyday, or at least every other day.

    I’ve stopped snacking after 8 pm; it’s amazing how much better I feel in the morning if I don’t snack late at night. I also try to get at least 3 servings of veggies and 2 of fruits each day – filling up on fruits and veggies help me to not snack on junk.

  28. We are reducing all things artificial!

  29. Training for a Susan G. Komen 3-Day event…if training to walk 60 miles in three days doesn’t help me get fit, I’m not sure what will!

  30. Crissa says:

    Mostly running…after my kids.

  31. Christy says:

    No more soda for me, cooking at home instead of takeout and headed back to the group exercise classes at the Y. The hard part is sticking with it.

  32. I’m getting up before my girls & rowing & adding more healthy foods to our diet.

  42. I just found out the the city we recently moved back to (our hometown) has a free stroller stride type program at a park very close to our house. It is once a week all summer long. Awesome! I am planning on going!

  43. Danielle says:

    Whenever I was pregnant and/or nursing, my husband and I would celebrate surviving the day with special dessert. Now that I’m neither pregnant nor nursing, I’m trying to break that habit and cut the dessert to once a week. I’ve also added a workout video to my week and it really does improve my life…in all ways.

  44. Morgan says:

    I’ve been eating more fruits and veggies, especially green smoothies.

  49. Ugh, I wish I were doing MORE to be more fit! It seems like lately I’ve been gaining weight like crazy! Yuck! Buuuut.. one thing I’ve been trying to do is take my kids on more walks. Stick them in the double stroller and we take quite long walks. It’s not much, but it’s a start!

  53. Kristin says:

    I am getting back into shape after the birth of my son by doing the P90X workouts!

  54. Diana H. says:

    I run. But I just signed up to do a triathlon so I’ll be doing some swimming and biking as well. Signing up for athletic events is the only thing that gets me motivated to exercise…that and needing to lose baby weight.

  55. I’m doing Zumba! I love Subway!

  56. I’m trying to walk regularly.

  57. Pamela J says:

    My latest fitness goal is to avoid taking seconds at meals. I figure this is a great example for my kids, too.

  59. Charity L. says:

    I recently started jazzercise classes to get back on track.

  60. Liz J. says:

    I am drinking more water, getting more active, doing Zumba videos, and eating more fruits, veggies, and whole grains. I am also trying to get my whole family involved and be more eco-friendly. I hope to have more energy to spend with my little princess, Lily, as well as help her inherit a better, cleaner world. :)

  61. Katie R says:

    I am getting out of the house and walking for 15 minutes, and (trying so hard!) cutting out sugars.

  62. Since childcare is included in my membership, I’ve become extremely devoted to my gym as a way to get out of the house (with three kids 2 and under, this is a necessity.) And I’m FINALLY trying to change my (terrible) eating habits.

  63. I started doing Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones, I love it, but I’ve been sore all week. I’m also eating less processed foods.

  64. maxine says:

    I have started walking 1mile every morning & intend to increase after a couple of weeks.

  65. I am exercising regularly

  66. maggie says:

    Just got an email tonight that the boot camp that I’ve been interested in forever is offering a 9:15 am class. I just can’t wake up at 5:00 am!

  67. Amanda says:

    My son likes to “run around the whole house” every night before bed (we have one of those loops between the livingroom and kitchen.) So I’ve been joining him. It’s only a few minutes, but it’s at top speed.

  68. I’ve been walking with the “Walk Away the Pounds” video for about 2 weeks now. It’s a challenge because I don’t like exercise!

  69. I’m trying to eat less– only eating when I am hungry and stopping when I am satisfied (as opposed to very full).

  70. taking walks while my son has soccer practice

  71. Pearl A says:

    I’m trying to cut down on my Diet Cokes and I started walking on the Tread Mill DH bought me last week. Gotta get healthy for myself and my family.

  72. Lisa H. says:

    Attempting to get back to the gym that has been without me for many months!

  73. I’m walking more and watching what I eat-including taking my lunch to work and cooking at home.

  74. Anne Marie says:

    I am really trying to eat healthier and walk more – at least one walk a day.

  75. My baby is 5 mos old and I still have 20lbs of baby fat. I just committed to run the Brooklyn half marathon in two weeks. It’s beyond crazy, I know. But I needed motivation to get out and run. Wish me luck!

  76. I am eating a healthier lower fat diet and I am making myself get up and move, walking as much as possible these days.

  77. Vanessa says:

    This is great! I’m training for a 10K. I’m also *trying* to plan healthier menus for my husband and myself. Thanks!

  78. I can’t believe I will be 50 in a 1 1/2 years – so starting to try to lose 50 lbs and run a 5k by the time I am 50! – Little changes add up is my motto – watching what I eat, exercising more and just feeling better

  79. Emily E Lah says:

    I’m trying to eat a spinach salad every day for lunch and watch how healthy my snacks are.

    eesuiter (at) hotmail (dot) com

  80. Rebecca says:

    I’ve been running, working out with the Wii and eating healthier!

  81. I decided a few months ago that I needed to be more intentional about exercising, and since then I’ve been walking almost every day either outside (when weather permits) or inside using Leslie Sansone DVD’s.

    I’m also making a concentrated effort to eat less sugar–I’m a big sweet tooth!

  82. I’ve been eating healthier for about a year and have lost 50 lbs. Being on the run, subway has definitely helped too. Just in general watching what I’m eating and moving more has helped. Never giving up is my motto.

  83. I’ve returned to workouts at the gym – I really do miss them when I don’t go, even though I have to juggle the benefits with guilt about not being home with my guys. :/ however, I’ve decided that it’s important for me to take care of my body so that I can take better care of them.

  84. Training for a 5k walked 1 mile and ran 2 on my last run!

  85. Three or four times a week, I walk for 30 minutes a day. I sometimes substitute my walking for doing vigorous yard work or other such activities. It’s made a big difference! :)

  86. Jessica says:

    The hubby and I have been doing Weight Watchers since January – and it works!

  87. Marissa says:

    I just got off a juice fast and now I am off sugar and other unhealthy stuff. I started walking again and will start my pilates program this week. Baby steps but needed to get rid of my spare tire.

  88. Samantha says:

  90. Kelly P says:

    getting up early to fit my walk in while dh is still here before work…

  91. Starlene says:

    As tempting as the couch may seem, I dont sit there anymore in front of the tv but try to do chores and play with my kids outside, everyday. I use to eat rice everyday (because I’m Asian) but not I substitute it my dinner with veggies or greens! U also join a workout class at church 2x a week. I’ve got 4 kids and lost a bunch of weight because of healthy choices.

  92. I am getting up earlier and working out every morning

  104. Rachel says:

  107. I’m trying to cut out all processed foods and sugar.

  108. Lynette says:

    LOL! Gravity is catching up to me too….I still look like I’m pregnant, though the baby is 16 mos old! I also gained 20 lbs after she was born (the most I have ever gained AFTER) making me the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life! :( I had intended to lose the weight by my 30th birthday (all 70 lbs of it) but now I only have 7 months to do that – but I’ve recently (finally) started working on it. I have a walk to jog program, and I’ve finally been getting myself up and going out and jogging this last week and a half!

  109. Getting out and walking more or running in the backyard with my 2-year-old.

  110. Just moved after baby #2 was 10 weeks old. Up and down the stairs with boxes has help drop 4 lbs in 2 weeks. Hoping to start watching what I eat and working out soon!

  134. cutting out soda & drinking more water!

  135. Amanda N says:

  137. I’m trying to exercise more and eat better foods.

  139. I’m walking regularly in the evenings – at least 20-25 minutes four to five nights a week.

  140. Since I have a 5 week old, I’m breastfeeding! It not only offers the ‘best’ for my baby, but it is a great calorie burner.

  141. I’m going to the beach in August, so I’ve been working out 4 times a week. With food, I struggle a bit, but I am eating more moderately

  142. At 35 weeks pregnant I’m just trying to stay mobile (emphasis on walking with our older two) at this point!

  143. I’ve been walking with my 19 month old in the stroller (and leaving the 4 year old at home so I can walk at a decent pace for a reasonable amount of time). Motivation is a hard thing for me….so I just keep working at it!

  151. Katherine says:

    I am trying to exercise 3 days a week.

  152. I’m really good about jogging on the treadmill or with the jogging stroller. However, I need to work on my addiction to sweets and snacks. I’m really trying to eat fruit and veggies instead of other snacky stuff, but I lose my motivation very quickly.

  153. I’m going to spend more time outdoors. I will spend lots of time in my garden and chasing after my toddler!

  154. I just started walking on the treadmill. I would love to be a “runner” so I’m trying to do intervals of running in between the walking. I also like workout DVD’s but haven’t started back on them yet.

  155. I am pregnant with our second child and would love this giveaway to help me get back on track soon after our son is born. Right now, I am doing my best to eat fruits and vegetables and go on walks and keep up with my 2 year old!

  156. maureen keim says:

    i’m walking more….

  157. Carmen E. says:

    I had a baby nine months ago and have only gained weight since. :( BUT, I have resolved in the last couple weeks to work out at least 3 times a week and to cut out sugar and most grains from my diet. I think it is helping! :) My biggest problem is self-discipline. But, it sure helps to have someone keep me accountable!

  158. watch my portion size. thanks for the chance to win!

  159. My husband and I go to the gym together and now that it’s warm we go hiking on a river near our house.

  160. MichelleH says:

    I’m trying to add more water in my daily diet and we’re increasing our veggies to meat ratio.

  161. I am trying to get a group together to play wallyball. I absolutely hate weight training or anything independent. I LOVE something competitive! You don’t notice you’re getting exercise when you’re having so much fun!

  162. As soon as my c-section heals, i want to start walking and perhaps do the couch to 5k program (again) and run a 5k!

  163. Kristen says:

    I have started to go to the gym and do Turbo Kick classes along with following Weight Watchers. I feel so much better and have a lot more energy now :)

  164. Does nursing the baby count? :-) Now that it is warmer, I try to get out and do something every day, even if it is just a walk with my family.

  165. I just had a baby three weeks ago, so in another 3 weeks I’ll start hopefully bike riding with my family. That and Weight Watchers.

  166. I’m staying away from fast food and trying to walk a whole lot more.

  167. Now that it’s finally nice I’m trying to get outside each day with my daughter.

  173. Janey L. says:

    My third baby is now 8 weeks old, and I am attempting to get back into a regular exercise routine!

  174. Just in the last week I made my first appearance at the gym..the same gym my DH got me a membership at in JANUARY !

  175. Jennifer says:

    I do Jillian’s 30 Day Shred when I have any energy left at night. And when I play tag with the littles, whew that is good exercise, too. They are fast!

  176. Celine says:

    I know I’m never going to make it to the gym so I just do what I can. Make extra trips up and down the stairs instead of trying to carry the most up at one time. Dance around with the kids to music. Now that the weather is nice we just might start taking a nightly walk down the street.

  177. walk a lot

  178. Sarah Cornett says:

  187. HeatherS says:

    I’m not doing enough but I am trying to make sure that as a family we are eating more fruits and veggies and I am trying to walk more.

  188. Jennifer says:

    I am trying to eat more fruits and veggies, and get outside and just play!

  189. misty gorman says:

    i work out an hour 4-5 days per week, plus i walk my son to and from school. my kids get to ride scooters or bikes to. it is a mile to school. i love that they are getting that much exercise daily, too.

  190. I am going to start walking again on the days I don’t work. I am going to start using the eliptical machine again on the days I do work.

  191. We’re eating more fruits and veggies and getting out in the yard to play (and run around) more often.

  192. Amanda says:

    Lots of outside time with the kids now that the weather is nicer – lots of walks, swing pushing, kicking balls, etc.

  193. Trying to stay in shape during my pregnancy and be well prepared for birth. I’m much more tired now (and don’t really feel like exercising!) but my sweet husband offers for us to work out together at the gym or take the dog for a walk. I wouldn’t be getting nearly as much exercise during this pregnancy if it wasn’t for him!

  194. I’m exercising and eating six small meals a day. Hopefully, this will help with all that extra baby fat; I had great results the last time I did it.

  195. I eat no sugar at all. Not one bit! it’s working!

  196. Going to Weight Watchers and limiting eating out. The whole month of April was eat at home MONTH.

  197. Melissa says:

    I am finally taking walks outside now that the weather is warming up!

  198. Kelley says:

    Pushing the double stroller while chasing after the older child on his training wheel bike. Definetly need more though!

  199. I have been doing Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred DVD workout during nap time! Sometimes my oldest (4) gives up on quiet time and comes down to join me. I tell him he can do the exercises too but he can NOT talk to me. It is really more about the fact I am working out so hard I can not just chat :O)

  200. Heather E. says:

    I’m using sparkpeople.com to track my food and exercise. I’m taking a Turbo Kick class and beginning to run again. I have lost 25 lbs. and have about 40 lbs. to go to my goal weight! I feel stronger and healthier than I have in the last two years after having my first baby! It feels so good!

  201. i workout every morning…i started with the insanity workout videos and boy do they work! i also run or do the elliptical. staying in shape has always been important to me, and i find that if i do it in the morning, it gets done.

    after i had my little one, i also really cleaned up our diets and we eat a lot of fruit, veggies and lean meats. we always ate pretty healthy, but now i eat a salad for lunch and tons of veggies for snacks.

    Drinking more water and trying to walk 2 miles, three times a week.

  203. Andrea E says:

    I am determined to exercise everyday so I choose to not shower or get dressed until I have worked out for the day. Yes, my friends and the delivery guy have all seen me sporting my lovely exercise attire. ;)

  204. I drink a green smoothie everyday and try to fit in at least 30 mins of cardio everyday.

  205. walking my dog more often and eating better

  206. I am trying the Couch to 5K program on my treadmill. And working in my garden!

  207. I recently started running and have my first 5K in less than 3 weeks!!

  208. Trina Miller says:

    My husband and I are going to start walking in the mornings. I also want to start walking the dog more, for both him and me :)

  209. I am trying to go to an aerobics class 2x a week.

  210. I’m trying to walk 3-4 times a week. Haven’t been very consistent, but am not giving up yet. Hope to get in 4 times 30 minutes each time this week. Thanks for the chance to win!

  211. Monica says:

    We’re biking more as a family!

  212. Well, I have mapped out a 3 mile path for walk/running. If only I could find the time…

  213. Nancy B says:

    The family and I are trying to take a walk each evening after supper.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
