Together Counts

When I see my sons' passion for sports, it makes me come alive. My 6-year is constantly surprising me with his athletic accomplishments and my 4-year old seems to be following in his footsteps. Today, my 4-year old tried on his brand new white baseball pants and we practiced throwing the baseball back and forth to each other.  At one point, I looked at him and said, "You haven't even had your first game yet, and you already have grass stains all over your pants."  He looked up at me and firmly said "That's what baseball is all about."  He was 100% right.

If you've been reading my recent posts about my DietBet weight loss competition, then you know I'm on a mission for more active and healthy living.  When I learned about the Together Counts program, it was exactly in line with the ongoing goals I have for my family.

The principle behind Together Counts is Energy Balance, which means balancing the calories we consume with the calories we burn.  It’s a first-of-its kind coalition that brings together more than 195 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and professional sports organizations. Their goal is to get more families eating and getting active together, with a message of moderation.

Together Counts is holding a sweepstakes on their Facebook page to celebrate their first anniversary. Prizes include gift cards, George Foreman Grills and a membership to Anytime Fitness. You can also find Together Counts on Twitter and Pinterest.

Everyone is also invited to a Twitter Party, on 4/3 from 8-9 PM EST, to celebrate Child Nutrition Month. Prizes include $50 same-as-cash gift cards. For more information and to RSVP, visit

Join in the fun!
