Mats, Balls, & Winners

by HEAB on December 14, 2009

I have 3 announcements to share with you, and I decided to combine them all into one post.

First, I won a really nice yoga mat from Erica over at Itzy’s Kitchen. It’s a Aurorae ultra thick, extra long yoga mat with a focal point icon. Thanks Erica! I love it.

Next up, I must share with you about the amazing goodies I received in the mail from Allie over at Pimp My Protein Shake


According to Allie, they are dairy free rice protein balls – very low in sugar, starring almond butter and Sunbutter and covered in sesame seeds. Um Allie? I love you. Thank you so much…they’re all gone. 🙂

And now onto the winner of my Vita-Mix Giveaway. Here is a picture of me sitting on my new yoga mat, eating a protein ball, congratulating the winner…


JDawn, invest in some earplugs my friend because you are now the proud owner of a Vita-Mix 5200!!!

Many thanks to Vita-Mix and to everyone who entered the giveaway. If you didn’t win, you can always order a VIta-Mix online. In fact, the company is currently offering free express shipping for a limited time with the following coupon code.

For those of you who already own a Vita, you should think about entering their Pitch Me Contest. I’m hoping do enter myself if I can find someone with a good camera to film the video.

I’ll leave you with CD’s Random Comment of The Day in photo format…

Heather: CD, why don’t you try zooming in so that they can read the sign.

The resulting photo…


Heather: Christopher!!!!!

CD: What??? 😉

Congrats to JDawn – sounds like she will make great use of it. I’m a little jealous -haha 😉 – but honestly I wouldn’t have the time or skillz to work with it…still stuck in the land of frozen dinners and bakery shops :0 ;).

I dooo need some ideas for a Xmas get-together/dinner party @ a friends’ towards the end of this week though!!! So…if anybody has any any suggestions, drop me a hint on my blog please haha !!…I know a few people are already doing desserts, and I don’t have time to prepare something fancy…but I want good eats 🙂 So far I’ve heard of lasagna, salads, chicken casserole, cheesecake being there.

Super congrats to JDawn and PHEW! Now I don’t have to decide if I was gonna give it to Sarah or Marissa once I won it. I’m sure my own Vita is super-relieved too!

HEABS – you are too adorable. CD kills me too. Maybe I can swap out for one of your dogs for a day, and no one would notice.

Certifiably Fit December 14, 2009 at 6:37 pm

Ha Ha on the close up picture. Those protein balls look super yummy and I’m guess they were if you ate them all.

Carolyn December 14, 2009 at 5:33 pm

I immediatly want to substitute coconut flour for the oat flour and make them balls… But i don’t think they would even make it to ball form before i just ate the bowl of stuff with a spoonula…I have all ingredients, amazingly enough…

Congrats to the winner of the VM….!!!
