BIG Giveaway Announcement

W


elcome March!

I am declaring March "Get Back on Track Month."

I set some goals for 2010 and I haven't been paying much attention to them over the past couple of months. I was busy enjoying my new found freedom from school and forgot to workout, read books for fun, and do a lot of the other things that I had planned to do when I had more time.

January and February were for recuperating. March is for accomplishing.

Things I want to accomplish in March:

1) Start swimming (I know how to swim, but I want to become a better swimmer).
2) Do some sort of work out 4 - 5 days per week.
3) Try new recipes!
4) Read 2 books for fun (minimum).
5) MAJOR Spring Cleaning (and organize).

I started off this first day of March with a 4km (2.5 mile) jog/ walk DVD. I am registering for my first 5K race which will take place on May 30th!! I am very excited!!

Before I get to my eats, I wanted to let you all know that the winner for the Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion will be chosen tomorrow evening. If you haven't entered yet you still have time!

Breakfast this morning was a lovely bowl of oats:




(1/2 cup coffee, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup oats, 1 T almond butter, 1 T maple flakes, 1 scoop chia seeds).

I packed an Amy's tofu stirfry, an orange and some cheese for lunch:



Dinner was a salad with red peppers, mushrooms, goat cheese, and balsamic dressing:





And some spinach pizza:

Simply Life said...

I think I'd go with the Modus Hudson Dining Table and DEFINITELY a KitchenAid Mixer!

Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday said...

I need a cooling rack and some new baking sheets.

I could also use a lamp for my bedroom.

carmen said...

From Cookware.com I'd choose the Universal Housewares Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron skillet. From AllModern.com I'd pick (this is daydreaming!!) the Herman Miller ® Goetz ™ Sofa!

Anne Marie said...

The pizza looks amazing!

Kacy said...

I tried to access the home decor site and it wasn't working, but I could see the home page and I loved the pewter teapot! And from the cookware page I would love to have the Hamilton Beach 2-Speed Hand Blender w/ Case. I really want one of those!

Kacy said...

I just tweeted! Are you in Twitter?

Crystal said...

Ohhh! This is fun. :D

I like the Amenity Home Cove Cream and Moss Duvet Collection for the bedroom, and for the kitchen I would be insane to not ask for a KitchenAid Mixer!!

Anais said...

I'll be honest, my favorite thing in the modern furniture site is the tea kettle!!! It's so classy!!

As for cookware, I'd have to go with the good old Le creuset pot (I'm not too sure what it's called). My parents have one for me back in Geneva and now the question is just how will we get it back here? :)

Jenny said...

Wow! What a marvelous giveaway! Thanks for stopping by my blog- I love discovering new blogs and this was a timely discovery ;)

I would LOVE the Herman Miller Sense desk for my studio and then (insert swoon here) the Kitchenaid Artisan Series tilt-head mixer in green. *sigh* A gal can dream.

Andrea @Celery In The City said...

Swimming is such a great goal! I'd love to learn someday!

Great company. I'd love to have a Breville juicer from allmodern and a chocolate mill from cookware! Who knew there was a such a thing as a chocolate mill...

Gina said...

Oh heck YEAH! I am moving soon, so I will take one of everything, please :) haha Specifically I like the Le Creuset cookware. I would die for that stuff. Also, on the modern home decor website, the cutlery was calling my name!

Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity!
Your pizza looks amazing, by the way. I love the thin, crispy crust!

Gina said...

CCJade23 said...

Wow - what awesome stuff these websites have! I found so many great items, but a few items that I really like are the iittala Origo 8.5 oz mix color dessert bowl from allmodern.com and the Paula Deen 2 piece stoneware mixing bowl set in green from cookware.com.

fightingwithfood said...

My kitchen cabinets are currently a disorganized mess, so I'd love to have a set of the Kinetic Go Green storage containers. I'd also love to have a cookbook holder, not only to use, but to display some of my favorite cookbooks that never see the light of day!
