ANNOUNCING! My very first EVER Give-a-way!

Welcome to my first EVER bliggity-blog give away! I am very VERY excited about this! Having never done one before, I will hold my breath while waiting for the results!

Most of my blogs center around skin care, or better put, safe skin care!  And why wouldn’t I, skin care is truly my passion. 

I am one that believes that the body works together in all ways. In other words, I’m not just a knee or a finger, or hand, or stomach ~ I’m sure you get the picture!

Skin care is my big time, #1 thing – having done the ‘oh, I will make soap’ for a hobby, to ohhhhhhhhh! I just cooked up 500 oz. of soap, 5 pounds of shampoo, 10 pounds of lotion, throw in some whipped body butter and sugar scrubs. To point, I ‘could’ boast that my potions have traveled the seven seas (or airways). To say I did ‘okay’ would be a fair statement.  Of course, that journey brought me to Beautycounter, such a FANTASTIC skin care company – I love it, I don’t have to sterilize bottles anymore, much less clean up after bottling things! Yet, I can still provide my customers fantastic skin care where we make sure our customers KNOW EVERYTHING!

After skin care, I am very concerned about nutrition. Having always been careful about what I fed our family of eight, neighbors thought it was ‘odd’ that we only put out one garbage can a week. In other words, I cooked ‘real’ food, therefore we had very little ‘garbage’.

All systems of our body work together, and while proper nutrition is important, and using safe skin care is very important,  it is also quite important that we ‘work’ our bodies.  Let’s face it, times have changed and we simply don’t move like we used to.  As a result, if there is one ‘right’ way to exercise, there are 100.  In today’s’ economy there are books/tapes/videos on every way to ‘move’ the body, and it seems that everyone written and produced are the ‘right’ way.  By george! it gets overwhelming doesn’t it?

Along with the simple fact we don’t ‘move’ as much, we have also ‘over busyed’ ourselves.  Sometimes that makes exercise ‘hard’ to ‘fit’ into our schedule. (now, we are getting down to the give-a-way!).  A few years ago, I had the privilege of ‘finding’ Lani Muelrath on the internet.   Perhaps she can remember how? I can’t! laniHowever, the honor has been all mine! She truly is an inspiration to many around the world!  She is a ‘real’ person with a ‘real’ story on how she made it to where she is.  I love real people, ya know?  Lani is a very basic gal, her recipes are simple, easy and concise.  I love that.  We are in common in so many ways.  Simple is good!

I was very excited when she revealed to me that she was actually writing a book about her fit quickie exercises! I kept bugging asking her when it would be coming out. fit_quickies_cover_lani_muelrath  I have her video series which has 1-10 fit quickie exercises on them.  You can read more about a few here. 

So, the giveaway?  Her BOOK! Fit Quickes ~ 5-Minute Targeted Body-Shaping Workouts!
These exercises fit into any other type of exercise program you are using.  I love them.  I can quite literally do Stand up Seats while my coffee brews.  Gets the blood flowing in ‘that’ much time.

Fit Quickie 1-10 are explained in great detail, provides many helpful hints, and explains the ‘why and wherefore’ of certain moves and the muscles that are being engaged and worked in short, burst like moves.  What I appreciate about Fit Quickies is that you ‘can’ do them in small bursts.  They in no way replace other cardio exercises, but, I will say this, they do get the blood pumping!  You will want to add them to your daily/weekly routine in no time, and you will find that you ‘can’ do them when time is tight.  Lani has outlined a schedule, suggesting how to group them together to get a longer workout; or you can create your own, which is what I tend to do!

I was pleasantly surprised to find ‘secrets’ in her book!  Which, since they are secrets you will have to get your copy and find out for yourself!  I am really excited about this giveaway, and can’t wait to find out who wins it!
