I’m Getting Active and Earning Rewards: Steps with Balance Rewards

Steps with Balance Rewards

It’s nice and sunny here in east Tennessee – I think I’ve mentioned that a few times lately.  It just makes me so happy, though.  The girls and I are spending as much time as we possibly can outside, everyday, and loving it!

I’m also loving the fact that I feel like getting outside and getting active.  There’s something about the cold months that makes me feel lazy.  Even though I could exercise perfectly well inside, it’s just not the same as taking a walk outside!

Last year I ran my first race, a 4 miler on July 4th, and then my first 3K a few months later…

Hubby was my inspiration and my coach so I just asked him this past weekend to write me up a schedule so I could accomplish my goal again of running that 4 mile race in July!  I’ve also been using other motivation – SHOPPING!  Seriously!  By entering my daily fitness activity and weighing in on the Walgreens mobile app with Walgreens Steps with Balance Rewards!

I’m earning 20 points for every mile I walk or run and 20 points every time I check in with my weight update.


By earning rewards, I can either use them for daily necessities that my family needs – or as a little reward for my hard work!

I’m telling you, those iTunes gift cards are great motivators for me and art supplies for the girls make them a little happier too!  You can see more of my recent shopping trip at Walgreens in my Google+ album.


The Walgreens mobile app is incredibly easy to use.  I use it for Shopping, refilling Prescriptions, printing pictures, and now keeping up with my physical activity.  I was able to merge by previous Steps with Walgreens account with this new one and set up Goals for myself.  I was also able to set a Weight Loss Goal and every time I log in to record my weight I can see my progress easily in the app {and earn 20 Balance Rewards points too!}.

So – what are you waiting for?  If you’re looking for an easy way to motivate yourself and track your progress, the Steps with Balance Rewards really can help.  Walgreens also has another great motivator that is going on right now and ends on May 1st.   This week you have the chance at winning:  RedBox Codes, Brita Water Pitchers, Walgreens Gift Cards, a FitBit Zip, and even more – just for entering into the Step Up to Win Sweepstakes.  Each day that you enter, you get more chances to win the daily prize as well as an entry into the Grand Prize – a trip to one of the The Biggest Loser‘s Resorts!


I plan on logging many more miles this Summer and rewarding myself {and my faithful fitness partners} the whole season… and hitting that weight loss goal!
