My resolution this year is a pretty common one-lose weight and gain fitness. The fitness part isn’t too hard for me. The motivation behind it is that I began training this week for the Bayshore Marathon in May in Traverse City Michigan. So I am kicking off the new year with quite a fitness goal. This will be my 5th marathon.
But losing weight is trickier. Marathon training always makes me hungry, and I have eat enough to fuel my training, yet try to avoid lots of useless calories. If I can lose a bit of weight, not only will I look and feel better, but I might also run faster! So, I am going to try to cut calories this year but not cut nutrition. Basically, I need to give up empty calories.
All of this made the timing of a request to try Tropicana Trop50 and their Trop50 True Resolutions promotion rather timely, as Trop50 fits in nicely with my resolution to lose weight and run faster.
Trop50 is a juice beverage with half the calories. There are no artificial sweeteners in it either, so just think of it as nice alternative to regular juice. You can get the vitamins and such, without the full amount of sugar that comes with them. I tried out the Orange and Raspberry Lemonade flavors. I love the Orange! It has great flavor and is not as thick as standard orange juice-something that often kept me from drinking regular juice. The Raspberry Lemonade is good too, with a nice tartness to it, but I like the orange the best.
So, Trop50 fits in well, and I certainly plan to keep drinking it! Do you have a New Year Resolution? If you visit Tropicana’s Facebook page, you can share your resolutions and motivations, get coupons for Trop50, and have the chance to win a $1,000 gift card!
