You can win a "Get Healthy" Package....
from YoPlus Light and MyBlogSpark. :-)

This evening my YoPlus Light package arrived....included were two coupons for a FREE 4-pack. Of course, I promptly went to the store.

I also recieved:
-----A pastel-ish blue workout bag. It even had an expandable compartment for my tennis shoes! The shoe compartment excited me....because I actually needed a new bag just like this for traveling (so that is what I will be using it for).
-----Earbuds...with changeable tips. The earbuds can be blue or purple. Considering how often I lose or damage earbuds, this is VERY helpful (not to mention stylish).
-----A workout towel with its own bag.
____________________

I tried:
YoPlus Light Honey Vanilla. It was not tart and had no aftertaste. It was the perfect texture and there was no overkill on the vanilla.
I also picked up:
The other 4-pack I got was Blueberry Acai. I hear so much about acai (especially from spammers). I think I have tried this before...but I am excited to again.
The store did not carry:
The Key Lime Pie flavor that YoPlus Light has. They did have the Strawberry Banana YoPlus Light...but every single one was expired (annoying since it is a new flavor). If I had more time, I certainly would have seen if the Strawberry Banana could be brought from the stockroom.

I shared:
-----With In-laws (who, by the way, have been a SUPER help lately....if you are reading). I gave them two containers of each flavor....so, they can each try.
-----HERE IS A COUPON FOR YOU. $1.00 off.....that is helpful.
http://bricks.coupons.com/bstart.asp?o=57800&ci=1&c=GM&p=4XeBjIEi I like that the coupon is a "brick." If you don't know about coupon bricks, I just want you to be aware that sometimes you are allowed more than one coupon by refreshing or going back....depends on how many coupons whatever company allows.
____________________

YOU CAN WIN:
-----The same package as me (bag,coupons,workout towel in a bag,earbuds)....United States only (sorry). The coupons for FREE yogurt do not work in Louisiana, Nevada and North Dakota....but winning the bag and other items would be great.
---The coupons also work for regular YoPlus not just Light.

HOW TO WIN:
I choose a random winner....you can enter several ways. Serious contributions only,please. Place your answers in the comment section of this post. The contest ends October 31st at 12:01 am Pacific Time. HAVE FUN WITH THIS!!!
-----Tell me three songs that you think are good to workout to....title and singer(s). You can get as many entries from this as you can think of songs worth working out to. :-)
-----Tell me of an unusual thing you have in your workout bag, purse, or wallet. You can do this up to six entries....and you can include them all in one post.
-----What would you recommend as a nutritious romantic dinner? One entry allowed. I hope that there are some good recipes with these answers. :-)
-----One entry: About how many calories do you think (or know) you eat a day? YoPlus light has 70 calories. :-)
-----Tell me that you hugged someone who is trying to lose weight....this can include yourself if the intent is sincere. This is on the honor system. One hug per person intending to lose weight....each hug will get you two entries.
-----Where do you think would be the most beautiful place in the world to work out? One entry.
-----What do you look for in a yogurt? One entry.

The winner will be announced sometime during the day of October 31st. Make sure that your comment is filled out in a way that you are not completely anonymous....I must have a way to contact you. :-) The prize will be sent out to you, as it was to me, via MyBlogSpark.

Hug #2

icefairy said...

I look for flavor and nutrition in yogurt.

icefairy said...

I'm not sure if it counts as unusual. I always take bandages with me because I easily got cuts on my figures.

Hevel said...

I'm not in the US, so don't count me in, but I do have some great work out songs.

One is Runaway Train by Soul Asylum. It's older, but it's perfect to keep a rhythm.

I also have Mika's Lollipop and several songs from thenew album on my workout playlist. Yet another one is Aaron Razel's Redemption time (aka Zman HaGeulah).

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

Icefairy now has 6 entries. :-) I also listed my giveaway on her blog. :-)

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

Icefairy. It is good to encourage...and people often forget to encourage themselves. Trying to be healthy/lose weight/not be depressed, etc. can be difficult...and a lot of people struggle through such efforts and issues alone.

What is your fave yogurt?

I am counting the bandages as unusual.:-) I am glad that you take them with you....I see so many people just leave open cuts.

Thank you for visiting....and for such good entries.

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

Hevel-
I love the song Runaway Train...I am practicing it for someday when I am brave enough to do karaoke and can find a calm environment that does it. This is one of my fave songs. :-)

I have not heard the other two sugggestions....gives me something to look for. THANK YOU. I always appreciate exploring new music.

I am trying the earbuds tonight. Husband is helping on a movie set...and I need to be quiet while he sleeps. I hope they are compatible with my computer...as I have lost all my other earbuds (as usual).

Thank you for all the great comments that you have been leaving lately.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I'm not in the US either, but it all looks good.

NetChick sent me here.

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

Thanks,as usual, for visiting Jean-Luc. I am noticing that a LOT of my visitors are from other countries...way more than it used to be. I really like the gym bag...it will contrast nicely with a lot of my clothes (in a good way).

The weirdest thing I have in my workout bag is a pair of earplugs.

I think a ratatouille served over whole wheat pasta would be a great romantic dinner.

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

3 entries for Wehaf. :-)

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

Wehaf-
You gave me two songs to look up. Of course, I have heard the Michael Jackson song....I like dancing to his version of "Come Together" (aerobic). I have been meaning to try ratatouille for a while now.

Kathryn said...

I would like to think that I eat 1600 calories a day but... I am sure it is more!!

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

Kathryn-
One entry for you in my giveaway. :-) I am supposed to eat 3,020 for my weight, height and level of activity. I have thyroid problems and I would be a blimp if I followed this advice. I am having the HARDEST time getting rid of the 23.3 of 68 pounds that I put on when my thyroid started going down this road. I read that it takes twice as much exercising as a normal person for someone with thyroid problems to loose weight. I exercise vigorously several days a week....and I do mean vigorously. The exercise keeps me from being huge....but I am still not at ideal weight (as some take delight in telling me). I have Hashimoto's disease (inflamed thyroid). It is a rare day when I hit over 1,500 calories....a very rare day.

Three songs to workout to would be:

Lets Get Started - Blackeyed Peas
Start Me Up - Rolling Stones
Love Shack - B52s

I look for taste and flavors in a yogurt.

Before kids, my husband and I used to go to a local restaurant that had the best grilled salmon salad ever.
