Tropicana® Trop50® True Resolutions + $50 Spa Week® Gift Card Giveaway ~CLOSED




Here's my resolution: I'm letting go.

If you're into boy bands and cheesy ballads, then it's evident that I completely borrowed that line from Nick Lachey's (wait for it) "Resolution". Once you get pass all the no-way-am-I-listening-to-that-corny-music excuse, the lyrics are actually good.

Here's my resolution
I'm letting go
All I need to learn is along this road
And I just want to be the best (wo)man I can be
Breathe, it's my resolution

While Nick penned this poetic prose to describe his feelings during a public divorce with celebrity Jessica Simpson, I viewed the lyrics as generic enough to use in life. The truth is we do not really have control over what happens to us. We may hold the wheel and push the pedal, but ultimately there's a stronger force that is doing all the driving.

I have control issues and I'm not ashamed (hangs head to prove that, in fact, I am). It's one of those flaws that you have to check when you're in the moment, after  you've completed the "crime".

But, I'm letting go.
I'll be okay.
It's hard.
Wah!
The new year often marks a new beginning for millions of people across the country. It's the clean slate we wait for every December 31, just as the ball begins to drop. We start jotting notes on a paper about how things will be different this year and what diets we'll go on, how many cigarettes we're NOT going to smoke, blah, blah, blah.
I'm not knocking resolutions. I just think they don't have to be so HUGE!

I like more attainable resolutions. Small goals, if you will. Something I can selfishly complete to satisfied my need for instant gratification.

Like stop nail biting.
Take brisk walks. 
Use coupons to save.
Drink more water.
Be on time...or make the effort.
Eat or drink more healthier food options, like Trop50.



Trop50 is available in Orange (No Pulp, Some Pulp and Calcium + Vitamin D), Farmstand Apple, Pomegranate Blueberry, Pineapple Mango, Lemonade and Raspberry Lemonade. 
Trop50 got its name as a result of the marriage of Tropicana and “50 percent” less sugar and calories. Tropicana Trop50 is a breakthrough innovation from Tropicana that offers 50 percent less sugar and calories, and no artificial sweeteners. Trop50 is the first juice beverage to be naturally sweetened with an all-natural stevia-based sweetener. Trop50 is designed to help manage weight goals by offering reduced sugar and calories, without sacrificing great taste.
You have to start somewhere, right?!

I was already a Tropicana drinker. It's a running joke with my son about how much I try to push orange juice on him ALL. DAY. LONG. I think it's the perfect way to squeeze in your vitamin C while enjoying a refreshing drink. Now that Trop50 has come along, I'm even more thrilled.

Want to share your resolution and save?! Head on over to the Trop50 - 50% Less Sugar and Calories Facebook page to take advantage of a Trop50 coupon for yourself and 50¢ off coupons for 50 of your friends.Hurry, this offer ends 1/31/2012.

As a parent, I know how easy it is to fall to the bottom of the priority list. In fact, I found two gift certificates to a local spa dated for 2005. They were a birthday present that I never redeemed. Gasp!

Fortunately, there is not an expiration date. Let's make sure this doesn't happen to you. I have just the giveaway to make your resolution of RELAXING, TAKING MORE ME TIME, or TREATING MYSELF, come true.
