Cross My Heart (plus a giveaway) Closed

We have been fortunate enough to have our health insurance covered through my husband’s membership in the Screen Actors Guild throughout most of our marriage. That includes, if you’re counting, 3 births, yearly wellness exams, ongoing treatment for Lyme Disease, and numerous trips to our local Urgent Care Center because that’s what you do when you have 3 children.

Since our coverage is through a Blue Company, we’re able to take advantage of a program offered for members, called Blue365. A national program offered by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association to members of participating Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield Companies, Blue365 incorporates a “Groupon-like” feel by offering products and services which are discounted and help to promote “healthy lifestyle choices.”

As I was perusing the site, I learned that a few of the deals are listed under categories such a Fitness, Healthy Eating, Living, Personal Care, and Wellness. In other words, the program is concentrated on helping members stay healthy by making good choices every day and aiding them in incorporating fun and healthy activities into their lives. They are also keeping in mind the idea that families are always searching for ways to stay fit, enjoy good nutrition, and even travel, all while staying within a budget, hence the discounts offered. I know I love a good deal.

One of the affiliated stores offering an online discount that caught my eye was Reebok is offering members a 20% discount plus free shipping. I’ve always been a fan of Reebok shoes and recently I became enamored with their active wear. So much so that I’ve ordered this:


(Just for the sake of full disclosure, these are not my shapely legs.)

These are the Shapewear Action Capri, and what sets them apart from my usual stretchy pants fare that I grace our gym in is that they have Shape n’ Hug panels that will help to smooth and shape key trouble areas. My grand hope is that I can discontinue wearing large oversized t-shirts over my workout pants in an effort to disguise my, well, imperfections. My ulterior motive for purchasing these may have a good deal to do with the hope that if I feel more confident in my workout gear, I’ll actually go and, you know, WORK OUT MORE OFTEN.

To sign up for Blue365 and learn more about the deals they are offering, go here. If your Blue Company isn’t yet participating in the Blue365 Program, you can still sign up and be alerted when your Blue Company joins.
