September Foodie Pen Pals Reveal Day

Posted Oct 01 2012 4:34pm
It's Monday, Monday, MONDAY! Motivational Monday.

It's a gorgeous day today. The first day of October. Have you worked out today? Are you planning a workout? Hopefully your gym clothes are always packed and ready to go in your car or in the office, so even if you don't have a workout scheduled, you are know-just in case. If you are reading this blog you are interested or even passionate about living a fit and healthy lifestyle. Yay YOU! Unfortunately not everyone is. Those people need us! Think about someone you know that could benefit from even doing ONE thing to be healthier. HOW can you help them do it? NOW go help them (after you read this blog post)!

I am pumped to be on holidays this week. As you know, September was a crazy busy month for me as well as my team at work. So this week is about recharging my batteries, eating well, working out, playing with Grando and catching up with friends. Sounds like a classic "stay-cation", right? I am planning on taking as many people with me to the gym this week. Watch out!

As I mentioned I did my own workout today. It was a full body blast that my trainer set me up with.

5 Rounds/10 Reps
Glute/Ham Raise w/ 25 # plate
Seated Row w/ 35 kg

4 Rounds/10 Reps
Push Ups
Cable Split Squats w/ 25#

3 Rounds/12 Reps (each side)
Dumbell Row w/ 25 # dumbell
VMO taps

Tabata Sprints: 4 minutes (20 seconds/10 seconds) 9.0 mph

Also, today is Foodie Pen Pals Reveal Day!

My Foodie PP for the Month of September is the lovely Anna. She grew up in the Okanagan but is going an internship in Central Alberta. She put so much thought and care into my pen pal goodies, I really cannot thank her enough. So let me break it all down for you!

I now have TWO more awesome recipes to try...literally because Anna included not only the recipes BUT also a homemade sample of
1. Supercharge Me Cookies
2. Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

With her permission I will post the details of both recipes on my blog under "It's Yummy in Here". Also I received a mason jars of her family's homemade apricot preserves and some gorgeous local flour. Yum, yum, yum! I absolutely cannot wait to try out my goodies. Oh wait, I already ate the peanut butter!

Also, my girl Chelsie who blogs over at Balance not Scale  was the recipient of MY goodies. I didn't have a chance to prepare anything homemade, but...well click HERE to check it out for yourself.

Now, after reading that don’t you want a penpal of your own?! Here are the details!
-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month.
-Foodie Penpals is open to US & Canadian residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa.

If you’re interested in participating for October, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by October 4th as pairings will be emailed on October 5th!

Last, but certainly not least I have a giveaway that is going on for another 48 hours (that's it) for an awesome tank from Ruffles with Love. Click HERE  to be whisked over to find out all the details on how to enter to win a tank of your choice! Tick tock...
