My Journey With Personal Trainer Food!

28 days ago I started the Personal Trainer Food regimen because I was overweight and not feeling great about myself anymore. I have 3 children who are all super active, and I'm a waitress as well so I stay very active, but because of my poor food choices, I had gained weight and didn't know how to get it off.

I found Personal Trainer Food through a company named Tryazon, and luckily, I was chosen, along with my 2 team members, my mom and my friend Bev, to try the food, for free for 28 days!!

We were given lists of what we could and couldn't eat, and did a pre weigh in with pictures and measurements. We had a one on one call with a personal coach and she took the time to answer all of our questions and listened to our concerns, and let us know she would be there through it all with us.

I started with a 36 hour fast, and then I was off! I had a goal of losing 15 pounds in the 28 days, which I exceeded! I lost a total of 19 pounds and a ton of inches!!

What I loved most about Personal Trainer Food was that the guesswork was taken out of it. My meals were delivered right to my door and I had a list of foods I could add if I wanted. I was NEVER hungry, and the food is real food... no replacement bars or shakes or anything like that. My meals were ready in minutes with no mess or cooking!!

I will forever be thankful for the tools Personal Trainer Food gave me to live a healthy life!

Gold Rush Pay Dirt Tryazon Party!

Thanks to #Tryazon, I got to host a Gold Rush Pay Dirt Party for my husband and his co-workers! His co- workers brought along their wives and children, and we had a BLAST!

Not only did we pan for gold, we also ATE gold foods! We had Pineapple, Caramel covered Apples, Bananas dipped in Vanilla and Banana Yogurt with Gold Sprinkles, and Pizza with Pineapple. All of my food was a hit! 

We had past episodes of Gold Rush playing on the TV, and we all talked about our favorite episodes and how much we would all love to head into the wilderness and pan for gold ourselves.... oh, what a dream that would be!!

At the end of the party, we weighed the gold, and my husbands co-worker Steve had amassed the most, so he was the lucky winner of the TShirt and extra 1 lb. Gold Panning Kit. Our guests loved the keychains and other extras, but the hats were definitely a hit with all the girls!

A huge thank you to Tryazon and the Gold Rush crew for this amazing party!

Whiffer Sniffers Tryazon Party!

Scratch and Sniff Stickers?! Plushies that smell delish enough to eat?!.. and cute enough to show off?! Check, check, check... thanks to #WhifferSniffers !!! We had a blast at our party which we hosted while camping at The End Of The Trail. 7 teen boys, and 2 little girls, and they were ALL loving the yummy smelling plushies.

Their favorite part of the Whiffer Sniffers party?! Being blindfolded and guessing if they were smelling a Plushie or a real food! Yes, they got it right a few times, but they also guessed wrong a few too. Lots of laughs, tons of fun, and nobody went home hungry!

Spintales Duvet

I was lucky enough to be chosen to host a #Spintales Party through #Tryazon, and everyone who attended had a ton of fun! The following picture was taken at the beginning, before all of my guests came, but you get the idea!!

Have you ever heard of Tilt Textiles? Tilt Textiles is the creator of Spintales, and here is a bit of background on them:

TILT Textiles, Inc ( is a smart home textile company, focused on seamlessly integrating technology into textiles to create delightful and meaningful experiences for kids and families. SpinTales was the first brand launched by TILT for Holiday 2016. There are currently two SpinTales products available and each product comes with 3 FREE stories! 

I got chosen to review the Spintales Duvet, which also comes with the most gorgeous pillow sham. This is what the blurb about it is on Tryazon:

You can experience classic fairytales in a new way on this Enchanted Duvet. Everyone’s favorite, Little Red, is one of the stories included. Help Little Red find her way to Grandma’s house on the other side of the forest. Beware of the wolf...he likes cookies and he’s a little bit ticklish! You’ll soon discover if this wolf is really all that bad. The second story is about Jack, a curious boy who loves magic. Join him on an adventure up the beanstalk, all the way to the sky and back. And if you love to build, you will love the third story about the three pigs. Help the pigs build their homes and huff and puff along with the wolf who tries to blow their houses down.

The kids at the party definitely had favorite parts... my girls loved building the house with the pigs from 3 Little Pigs, and my youngest thought it was hilarious that the Wolf was ticklish! Her giggle was adorable...

I can honestly tell you that even the adults who came to our party had fun using it! It definitely seems futuristic, is super interactive, and a fun way to learn and play! I cannot wait to see what Spintales come up with next!

Sterno S'mores Maker

This Sterno S'mores Maker made making S'mores more organized, more fun, and MUCH easier to clean up! This container holds marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate separately, and I got to get it all organized before the kids even saw it. It held enough for all of the kids to make one S'more, then I quickly refilled for them to make more.

The best thing about this is the fire can in the middle that was super easy to light, and lasted at least 45 minutes. So much less worry than a bonfire! I wasn't scared even once that my kid was going to fall in while trying to roast the perfect marshmallow!

Overall, this Sterno S'mores Maker makes making S'mores easier, more organized, and much safer, plus it can be used in ANY environment :)

Thanks to Tryazon, I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions stated are 100% my own.
