Hi love muffins! A few weeks ago, I received a box filled with goodies from Rite Aid! For those who don't remember or are new to my blog, I'm part of the Rite Aid Network, here to bring you the newest and hottest health, beauty and more news and goodies from Rite Aid! In this month's box it seems the theme is starting the year off healthy! Let's peek inside!

Wholesome Goodness Omega Granola Bars | Mountain Mix 
Oh my goodness. These are hands down the most delicious granola bars I've ever tasted. The apple cinnamon ones are where it's at. They taste like apple pie! The Omega Granola Bars have nutritional benefits of Omega-6 and Omega-3 Fatty Acids in each bar. They contain no high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweetners, colorings, preservatives, additives, trans-fat and highly processed ingredients. The Mountain Mix is perfect to throw in your purse when you're on-the-go. It's filled with roasted almonds, peanuts, raisins, sunflower seeds and dark chocolate! Om nom nom! 

When food shopping at Rite Aid, keep an eye out for new shelf signs that can help you identify products: gluten-free, carb aware, healthy heart, low sodium, sugar free, good sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Fiber and/or Calcium, whole grain, 100% juice and if it's organic. How cool is that? I don't think I've ever seen that in a store before.

Denise Austin Forever Fit! Toning & Strength Resistance Tube
Denise Austin's Forever Fit! line is exclusive to Rite Aid and is broken down into four main groups - Balance and Flexibility, Toning and Strength, Hearth Health and Fitness Support. I'm a total noob when it comes to using equipment at home but was happy to find out that you can actually watch how to use the equipment in a workout on Rite Aid's website. Pretty freakin' cool.

Denise Austin Forever Fit! Toning & Strength Resistance Tube
The resistance tube itself is light and holds about 5 pounds resistance. It comes in two other options: medium ( 10 lbs. resistance) and heavy (20 lbs. resistance). Resistance tubes (when used correctly) affect every muscle in your body and increases muscle strength. I used mine by placing it under my feet and pulling up. Can you guys tell I'm a horrible fitness blogger? Hahaha. There are three easy exercises on the side of the box as well as the video on Rite Aid's website.

Julie G. Nail Colors in Freshly Squeezed, Sugar Rush & Crushed Candy
Ah, something I'm a bit more familiar with. Nothing is healthier than looking fabulous. Am I right? I am the biggest fan of Julie G. and her polishes. Where else can you find gorgeous polish at such a cheap price? Freshly Squeezed is a light orange-y peach with hot pink shimmer (sorry the picture sucks and doesn't show it).  Sugar Rush is a fun orange with gold flecks texture polish. Blueberry Fizz is a nice textured blue with silver shimmer. Crushed Candy reminds me of grape rock candy with its purple base and silver flecks - also a textured polish. Last, we have the Julie G. Jetset Quick-Dry Top Coat which is nice but doesn't replace my HK Girl Top Coat. Each polish is a dream to work with with no issues whatsoever. I actually already own Sugar Rush and Crushed Candy so as nice as it is to have backups, I'd rather share you with you! Keep an eye out for a giveaway :)

Do you have any resolutions for the new year? If you do, have you broke them or are you still going strong?
