Body Attack Launch & A Giveaway

First off, there is a fun giveaway at the bottom of this post from the CSN stores (they have all kinds of goodies including vanity items).

Thank you all for the sweet comments on my Boston post. A few of you asked where I got my grey tank top from- Banana Republic Outlet, $9!

How has your week been? This week has been just pure craziness for me. Work has been super busy. We also had our Body Attack launch on Tuesday night. Two VERY special guests came the the launch, Christina from Hungry Meets Healthy (whose birthday is today- HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!) and Amelia:

P1090131

It was so fun to have them both at the launch. We did a Red, White & Blue theme for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. Instructors:P1090133 The launch went really well. After, Amelia (who is a trained pastry chef) gave Christina and I some amazing treats. Breakfast cookies and truffles:

 P1090138

 P1090137

Both treats are vegan and contain no added sugar! I already ate one of the breakfast cookies….it may be the best cookie I’ve ever had! Thank you Amelia!!!

How are your workouts coming this week? My schedule is looking as follows:

  • Monday:  Ran 6 miles outside
  • Tuesday: Body Attack launch
  • Wednesday:  Ran to warm up, taught Body Pump
  • Thursday:  Teach 45 minute Body Step, 45 minute Body Pump
  • Friday:  Off
  • Saturday:  Teach Body Step
  • Sunday: Off

And now…for the giveaway! I’ve told you how much I love the CSN stores. They carry a HUGE variety of products including kitchen goods and even vanities. I know Janetha loves their furniture selection.  The nice people at CSN stores are offering you the chance to win a $150 one time use gift certificate. All you have to do is visit their main website and tell me what you may buy with the gift certificate if you win. You DO NOT have to have a blog to enter! The contest will be open until noon on Thursday (July 1) and the winner will be announced on Friday! Good luck.

I'd use the gift certificate towards this stock pot: http://www.csnstores.com/Master-Chef-MC2-6-Qt.-Stock-Pot-AAC1158.html

Our current stock pot is woefully losing it's non-stick surface so I'd love to upgrade it to an all-clad pan!

gretchen said...

I'd use it towards a KitchenAid mixer!

CaSaundraLeigh said...

You guys always do such cool launches--love the red,white and blue theme! And those treats look amazing. No added sugar?! Extra bonus! If I wo, I'd buy an indoor grill--it's on my list of wants!

stephanie @cookinfanatic said...

wow what a giveaway girl! i would use the certificate to get a bunch of things for the kitchen that i want, like a food processor, roasting pan and some good knives!

Jessica @ How Sweet said...

One of the mini wine fridges! I need it...bad. :)

ebarave said...

I would use it to buy an ice cream maker and maybe some grill accessories since we just bought one!

Lindsay @ http://pancakesnpajamas.blogspot.com/ said...

$9? That's a steal of a deal! Gah I'm so sad I missed the launch with you girls. Can't wait for our coffee date though. I think I'd use it for some new plates. P and Molly tend to break things....

Nicole @ Geek Turned Athlete said...

I love how festive your gym is for the 4th! Wow, what a great giveaway! I would definitely want to put the gift cert towards a Kitchen Aid. I need one! After having to mix/blend/food process/etc. all my food in the living room (that is where our transformer was) for 2 1/2 years, I am so ready to start buying more 110 volt products!!

Jenna said...

We are on the hunt for a big floor mirror for our new place, so I'd have to say a floor mirror!

Christina said...

I would put it towards a new bedroom set...looks like there are some great ones on there!

Jessica said...

I think I would buy something cool for the baby...perhaps the corner change table as the room isn't too big, and it's not something I was going to buy just for fun.

Glad your launches always go so well!

Trying To Heal said...

i would love to get my hands on one of those bakeware sets! i have the most horrible baking sheets and pans!

MRS SIMMONS said...

I would love to choose from the many, very cool, home goods. I have been married for a while now and need to replace almost all of kitchen stuff.

Anne Marie said...

I'd use it towards a mixer!

Katie said...

I'd put it towards a KitchenAid mixer! No idea where I'd put it, but I want one so badly!

atastelife said...

I would definitly put it towards a kitchen island. We have a huge kitchen and that's what's missing - another place for me to groove!

Hailey(Adventures in Health) said...

Oh I would buy something for the kitchen maybe a new blender or mixer!!

Jessica said...

I would definitely purchase a food processor!!!!

Enjoy and thank you!

P.S. Congrats on your Body Attack and those cookies look yummy!

Maria said...

Yeah for Body Attack:) I would use it for new cookie sheets:) Oh-did you see my lemon raspberry bars? They are a spin off of the lime bars you love. I highly suggest you try them:)

*Naomi* said...

omggg wowza well first of all you look so super cute in your 4th of july themed clothes!!! I love it! :) I wish I lived closer to you so you could kick my butt in class :)

150 bucks to CSN stores?!?! umm wow I cant pick just one item!! i would have to majorly spend some time on the website, but I do know that I would LOVE some at home dumbbells to use for P90x and other workouts! I also want my own food processor (my roomies have one, but for when I move, I want my OWN!)

xoxoxo <3

Dynamics said...

Oh, fun...the spiral slicer, and more fun stuff. My egg slicer broke so that would be nice. I love kitchen gadgets.

Autumn @Good Eats Girl said...

Congrats on the successful class! And yay for treats!!

I'd definitely purchase new items for the kitchen...a new food processor would be at the top of the list as mine is awful!!! Or towards a Kitchen Aid stand mixer...there are so many things on my list of kitchen wants!!

Colleen said...

What a great giveaway! If I won I'd use it on a wine fridge. Probably this one....
http://www.csnstores.com/Koolatron-WC12-KOO1047.html

I like the slim design!

Erin at thehealthyapron said...

Hey girly! Great giveaway!! I would definitely buy myself some new fitness equipment for home! I saw some pilates bands and jump ropes, yoga mats! I love that kind of stuff!!

Beth @ DiningAndDishing said...

I would definitely put it towards a couch! I am moving soon and that's the one thing our house still needs :)

Allie (Live Laugh Eat) said...

I would use it to get a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I've been longing for one for what seems like 5 lifetimes!! I know it would make baking so much more fun for me. Otherwise I might have to wait until I get married! Ha!

Kassi said...

I would use it toward a hanging pot rack! I've wanted one for ages but they've always been a little out of the budget :)

Mere said...

I would hands down use the CSN gift certificate towards the Cuisinart 9-Cup Food Processor shown here: http://www.csnstores.com/Cuisinart-DLC-2009CHB-CUI1083.html.

I have never owned a food processor and have been dying to get my hands on one to make homemade pesto (yum!) and other fabulous recipes that I have read (and drooled over) on numerous foodie blogs!

Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews said...

I would love to win because I want a new set of pots and pans.

Lauren said...

Aww you all look so cute in the REd White and Blue gear! :) What a great launch! :)

I love the CSN store and with 150 bucks, I could do some serious damage! I'm definitely eyeing a new electric grill. My foreman just isn't cutting it anymore!

Have a fantastic day hun!

Junghwa said...

your bloggie meetup in the last post looked fun, i am jealous that you get to go to those so often.. nobody comes to salt lake city to meet up with me! (boohoo)

YES i love CSN stores. they have seriously been a life saver in this house renovation thing. i got my sinks from them! and if i won, the card would go toward purchasing a kitchen table because we still haven't bought one. and we definitely NEED a kitchen table!

xoxoxo

Tracey said...

Wow, thanks for such a great giveaway! I would use the gift certificate to buy foodie boyfriend a paella pan - he loves to cook and has been on a big paella kick recently. I know he would love it!!!

Krista said...

I would get a fancy shmancy coffee/espresso maker!!

The new launch looks like it was a lot of fun!!! :)

ktbwood said...

Amelia said...

Attack was fun! Thank you again!

I would use the gift certificate towards the purchase of a sofa. We are currently sitting on lawn chairs so it would be nice to have something "cushy" under my behind for a change. :)

Lisa said...

I want a food processor.

Stacey said...

The cookie and especially the truffle look awesome. Glad you had a good launch, sounds like fun.

homecookedem said...

How sweet of Amelia to bring those cookies and truffles for yall! And awesome that they don't have added sugar and are vegan!! :)

I would love to win that gift certificate so that I can buy something for my baby's room. Maybe a comfy glider to rock him/her in?! :)

The Blonde Duck said...

I love the red white and blue theme!

feetinmotion said...

You look so adorable!!! I'd probably buy a blender, but not sure which one!! Either that or something really nice for my dorm room!

Shannon said...

with the warmer temps, i'd probably lean towards a veggie spiralizer for some "pasta"!!

The International Loser said...

Yikes like it is possible for me to shop for only one thing! If I had to pick something it would be a blender, mine is crap and I'm in desperate need of a green monster that lacks chunks!

Natalie said...

cute red white and blue outfit!

I would totally buy cookie scoops or an ice cream maker. It's always all about the dessert :)

haylee said...

I would have to buy a yoga mat :D and then I would put it towards making my husbands and I's new apartment to finally feel homey with new appliances and little decorations!!

tam said...

Sounds like your event went well! The ice cream is called a 99 when a flake is put in it not sure why!? But its yummy! x x

Domestic Diva said...

LOvely! I would get a guidecraft kitchen helper.

Heatha said...

Love the launch idea! Our launch is coming up in 2 weeks!
You always have great giveaways - I'd totally use the GC towards new pots and pans. We need new ones badly!!
Hope you're having a good week!

Kerr said...

your workout schedule amazes me. I wish I had your motivation!

I would get a food processor. I have been trying to con my mother out of hers for years and she wont give!

carolinebee.com said...

OMGG i wishhh i could've met up with u guys in Boston!! So fun :) Everything on that site looks awesome- i would probably go for the magic bullet, or maybe wall art since my apt is bare!

Deanna G. said...

I'd love to get the WovenWorkz Mink Faux Fur throw:

http://www.beddingandmore.com/Woven-Workz-031-010-WWZ1008.html

Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather said...

Wow with such an awesome gift card I would get new lighting for our house. Thanks for the giveaway girlie! You always look so cute dressed up for your launches, I bet they're a ton of fun.

Jodie said...

I have been wanting a food processor for quite sometime now, so I would definitely buy that.

Stephanie in Suburbia said...

I am just dying for their diaper bags! I know that makes me lame, but the ones I see always scream "mommy" and these ones are cute.

the actor's diet said...

i desperately need a new duvet cover!

Chin Chin Chu said...

I would totally put it towards new dishes, new pots, and other kitchen necessities that I am sorely lacking.

Megan D said...

I love the patriotic theme! And those truffles look amaazing. So do the cookies.. anything called a cookie that I can eat for breakfast is fine by me!!

BroccoliHut said...

Love the looks of that truffle!

Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) said...

ooh vegan truffles look good!!!

My workouts have been lackluster this week. Too busy! I hate that. I've done some short workouts but I'm craving a longer run.

I'd use the CSN gift cert for some pilates/yoga gear!

Nicole said...

That breakfast cookie looks so tasty! And thanks for the link to Heather's blog - I gave it a click + loved her layout + cheerful posts... a new friend perhaps? :)

Shoot: treadmill or elliptical?? Yes please!

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) said...

omg this is amazing!

love the pics of you and the meetup and the raw treats!

i would spend the 150 on some stellar knives!

Kelsey said...

i need a new muffin pan so id totally think id look for a few good ones :)

i just wished homegirl a happy birthday hehe. YUMMY TREATS you shared <3 especially the cookie!! wow <3 xoxo

Sharon said...

I would have to put it towards a KitchenAid mixer - a green one, I think!

Vicky said...

going out with all those fellow bloggies in Boston sounds like so much fun!! I'd use the gift certificate towards a KitchenAid mixer!! I am always so jealous of everyone eating smoothies etc, and I would love to be able to make them too!

inmytummy.com said...

This wouldn't pay for all of it, but I'd definitely buy a new (bigger) bed. Two people and a 60 lb dog in a double bed is no picnic.

Jody said...

I'm torn, I'd either use it towards new dinner wear or a new lounge chair. Either way, I'd have fun deciding what to get.

Melissa @ For the Love of Health said...

I net you are an amazing instructor! Those treats look fantastic!
I love your workout schedule- it must be really motivating knowing that you have a group of people following you in the classes :-)

I would LOVE a Food Processor from CSN.

Enjoy your day!

Lisanne said...

I would definitely use it towards some new luggage. Mine is quickly wearing out!

mels! W said...

Kitchen Aid mixer all the way!

Lauren Elizabeth said...

I would use the gift card for a set of champagne glasses... something I've always wanted but talked myself out of buying on multiple occasions!

hbobier @ Basil Vodka said...

Kitchenaid Mixer!! :)

Elizabeth KS said...

So awesome, they have everything!! I love their home decor - bring on a new living room rug!

Lindsay said...

I'd go for some new bedding! I just graduated from college and I need a "grown up" comforter :-)

biz319 said...

I would love to buy the Camp Chef 14" Dutch Oven - perfect for making baked beans on my Weber!

Paige (Running Around Normal) said...

Holy awesome giveaway!!!

Our pots and pans are showing their age BIG time right now, so I'd use it to put it towards a new set:)

Your workouts for the week look rockin'! I still need to email you about the group exercise...so busy lately! But I'd love your input. You'll hear from me soon :)

Angharad said...

Ooh, sad I missed the deadline for this!! SO glad you had such fun in Boston - we were both rocking it on the east coast this weekend!

Lovely that you got to see your best friend as well - good for the soul!

Miz said...

KITCHEN AID MIXER!!

Ashlei said...
