My husband and I have been talking about doing a 5k for a while now and I think I found the perfect one for us to do! The Stadium Obstacle Challenge event, Saturday, June 11, 2016, 4:30-9:00 p.m., 1701 Bryant Street, Denver is going to be so much fun I can’t wait! There will be Obstacles, Music 5K Fun Run and a Music Festival!
Denver Broncos, 24 Hour Fitness® and Children’s Hospital Colorado and UCHealth, the inaugural event includes a music 5K fun run, a 10-station obstacle course that tests the determination and skill of amateur and accomplished road warriors alike—and includes the towering Warped Wall!—plus a music festival featuring some of the region’s most popular DJs and live bands.
The event is part of the Denver Broncos’ Health & Wellness platform that aims to educate and motivate Broncos fans on the importance of introducing and making healthy lifestyle choices. My husband and I have been married for 11 years on May 28th and we have been trying to think of something fun to do for our anniversary and since we are trying to get in shape, this 5k is what we are going to do together!
Event registration includes a special Swag Bag with a Broncos Stadium Challenge t-shirt, 24 Hour Fitness branded drawstring bag, sunglasses and sweatband—the perfect attire for the fashionable fitness and music festival crowd. Plus, each fun run race bib including an RFID (radio-frequency identification) chip that links to a timing component for the obstacle course so that you can compete to beat everyone in your path. The chip also captures photos throughout the race which participants can download from the event website by looking up their music run bib number.
The full evening of fitness, fun and the music festival also includes food vendors, game stations that test your brain power and physical skill, and a special warm-up dance party prior to the music 5K fun run, presented by the rock-star Group X instructors of 24 Hour Fitness.

I have been compensated by Glucerna for this post; however, I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own.Talk with your health care provider about a diabetes management plan that’s right for you.
One of the sweetest women I have ever met was my husband’s grandmother. She helped raise my husband and helped shape him into the wonderful man he is today. She struggled with diabetes for as long as I had known her and I personally saw how hard it was on her. My husband’s family has a lot of family history of diabetes so I decided from early on in our marriage that I would do whatever possible to keep him healthy. I know with his family history there is only so much I can do but since I buy the groceries in our house, I can help him eat as healthy as possible to give him the best chance! One thing he is trying out now is Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes (Chocolate and Vanilla). These shakes help manage his hunger and is designed to help minimize blood sugar spikes.
Below is a picture of my husbands late grandmother Jewell. She meant so much to us that we named our only little girl after her! My daughter’s name is Sayla-Jewell and when the birth certificate lady came to my hospital room to help us fill out that info, I made it clear my daughters middle name was not Jewell, her first same is! They still got it wrong so I had to send it back to fix it! I wanted my husbands grandmothers name to be said every time you say my daughter’s name.
She was a sweet Southern women and always made sure I was taking care of my husband and making him eat right. I think she would be proud how hard I try to do what she did for so many years with him!
I went over to Walmart to get this weeks groceries and pick up some Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes in Vanilla. I like to make a meal plan each week so I only have to go to the grocery store once a week. If you do this meal plan below, make sure you get 2 packs of the Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes. I found mine near the pharmacy. Plus when you buy any 2 large packs of Glucerna® and get up to $3 off. Click here for the offer!
Below is a 7 day kick-start meal plan for you! The main thing is to cut out sugar, bread products and only drink water and Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes (Chocolate and Vanilla).
The Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shake has 15 grams of protein and CARBSTEADY®, which includes slowly digestible carbohydrates designed to help minimize blood sugar spikes. It only has 6 grams of sugars and 1 carb choice per bottle* which makes it a perfect snack choice in my meal plan above.
Here are a few tips on my meal plan:
The hardest part of doing a specific meal plan for me is my sugar cravings so my favorite part about the Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shake is they help manage our sugar cravings. I think it’s a heavy burden to be the grocery shopper in your house because you determine how your entire family eats but I am happy to take on that challenge to help my husband have the best chance at staying away from diabetes.
What are your health goals?!
