Walk with Walgreens {The Celebrity Apprentice}

Do you watch The Celebrity Apprentice?  I admit it.  I do.  And I don’t feel guilty about it one bit.  We all need our guilty pleasures.

So a few weeks ago, the celebrities on the show were tasked with coming up with a unique way to promote the Walk with Walgreens promotion.  Walgreens wants to get America walking, for fitness, for health, for fun.  And why the heck not?  Two months before I married The Ex, walking an hour daily accounted for a thirty pound weight loss.  And as my ankle is still not as strong as it was pre-sprain, walking regularly has been peppered in along with regular Zumba classes.

Whether you do it for leisure or for health and fitness, walking is good.  Period, end of story.

So anyway, the teams on the show got together, and the winning team’s concept ended up in Walgreens stores nationwide the next day.  Well, the next day after the taped show finally aired.  That would have been April 1st.

The winning idea is a small cardboard box that fits in the palm of your hand.  Brightly colored, each of the box’s panels featured the celebrities on the team, and their ideas about why walking is good for you.  And them.

Inside the box, you’ll find a pedometer, coupons, a small nylon gym bag, and other goodies.

The best part?

It’s free.  Yes, free.

Well, it rings up for three cents, but the cashier has a code to punch in when you purchase it, making it free.

Once I found that out, I went back and got one for my sister, Mom, and Mystic’s daughter.

When you get your box home, register online at Walgreen’s website, so you can track your walking, progress, and visit their health and fitness forums.  *You can also register right in the store at their photo kiosks.

Go get ’em!

*This is NOT a sponsored post.  Just sharing something fun and free that I thought you might benefit from.

Oh no, definitely not. I believe it’s while supplies last.
