My Life is a Journey has joined forces with Fitness Buster to keep you healthy and active in 2014. We will be doing monthly challenges to help you (and us) stay active and healthy. You can visit both blogs through the year for nutrition and health tips as well.
For the month of January we have chosen to do a #BurpeeChallenge
We all have a love-hate relationship with Burpees. They are hard but they work.

For our challenges some months we will have prizes and other months we will just do it for fun. We hope you join us every month.
For January we will have a Pedometer giveaway. Enter the rafflecopter below for your chance to win our January prize.

We are in the process of changing our carpet for hardwood floors. It has been a blessing in disguise. We had a leak and we were forced to remodel the house. And although we have been living in a big mess until we have the time to actually finish the work (and we are not done yet) I am happy that we now will not have carpet anymore.
I always liked hardwood floors. They are easy to clean, but I really do not like mops. So I started looking around for other alternatives and I found the Swiffer Bissell SteamBoost Steam Mop. I always wanted a steam mop, but I did not feel like paying a lot of money for one. So at $49.99 the Swiffer Bissell SteamBoost Steam Mop is reasonable and the best part, it does the job.
Without a lot of effort I can clean the floor and it dries almost right away. No buckets, no dirty water, no spills and a clean floor. I really like it. And no other chemical solutions needed. Just water and steam. Perfect!
I cannot wait for the rest of the house to be hardwood floors so I can get rid of the heavy vacuum and be able to clean the house in just a couple of hours and not a whole day.
The new light-weight household necessity retails for $49.99, but now through the end of December Swiffer is offering a $15.00 mail-in rebate, making the gift even more affordable! For more information on the rebate please visit Swiffer.com/rebate.
One lucky My Life is a Journey reader will win a Swiffer Bissell SteamBoost Steam Mop and a container of 20 steam mopping cloths to have their house clean in 2014. To enter just follow the rafflecopter below.

My son has seen this product on TV and he really wanted to try it out. So when we were offered the chance to review it I knew my ice cream lover boy was going to be really happy.
The Ice Cream Magic ice cream maker container is really cute. I looks like an ice cream cone. I have seen a lot of reviews saying that the product does not work, so I was afraid my son was going to be disappointed. He was not disappointed, he was able to make ice cream, but just a little bit. He still loved it and just to help the kids play on the kitchen and make their own snack is a good product.
Now, if you are expecting this to be the tool to make ice cream to feed your family, do not buy it. But if you just want a little for your kids then it would do the job.
I did changed the recipe a little bit. We used heavy cream instead of water to make sure my son was going to make ice cream.
What I like is the container, because even if he does not want to shake it to make 4 tablespoons of ice cream, I can serve store bought ice cream on the cute cone.
It is not expensive, and provides some fun for the kids.
Available in Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry swirl caps, Ice Cream Magic is $9.99 each and at fine retailers everywhere. For ages 4 and up.
Flashlight Friends - review

Flashlight Friends: the new huggable, loveable plush animals that foster comfort and security
at bedtime or even just plain fun entertainment during the day.
With different colors and animals to choose from (Dragon, Penguin, Puppy, and Unicorn), you can have a great gift for either a boy or a girl.
Ideal for camping trips or just to comfort the kids that are afraid of the dark. They have a 10-minute auto shut-off, so if the little one falls asleep the light will not wake them up.
Recommended for ages 4 and up.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to taste great Mexican dishes prepared by Chef Vicente Del Rio using Las Palmas Red Chile Sauce.
All the food we tried that night was delicious and you can see pictures and get recipes on post one and post two.
Now I have a giveaway for my readers. Two My Life is a Journey readers can win Las Palmas sauce cans (with recipe folder) to try the recipes at their home.
