I know everyone does, but I have this slight problem where if anything is free, I feel a strong compulsion to take it even if it’s not something I need or will ever use. It’s quite similar to my compulsion to eat food when I see, even if I’m not hungry. We won’t go there today though.
Before I get into the swag, know that even after an exhausting weekend at FitBloggin’, I still went grocery shopping as soon as I got home on Sunday to restock my fridge.
For $38 at The Teet, I got:
- 1 red pepper
- 5 oranges
- 2 limes
- 1 red onion
- Cottage Cheese
- 5 Fage 2% Yogurts
- Light Sour Cream
- Frozen Whole Grain Waffles (!)
I was excited to stock up on lots of produce, and here’s what I came up with for a meal plan:
|Monday||English Muffin w/pb + banana||Leftover Fish Taco Salad w/Pineapple Salsa||Fage 2% Cherry||Out for Sushi (not planned!)|
|Tuesday||PB + Banana Waffle Sandwich||Salad w/pineapple salsa, pintos, fage 2%||Cottage Cheese + Blueberries||Scrambled Eggs w/herbs + cheese, toast|
|Wednesday||Greek Yogurt, Blueberries, Granola||Brown Rice Salad w/pintos, veggies, vinegar, orange||Cottage Cheese + Pineapple||Lentil Loaf, Mashed Cauliflower, Kale|
|Thursday||Green Smoothie w/pb, orange||Leftover lentil loaf and kale||Fage 2% Strawberry||Pineapple + Tofu Stirfry w/soba noodles|
|Friday||Waffle Sandwich w/PB, honey, banana||Leftover pineapple stirfry||Cottage Cheese + berries||Tempeh Tacos?|
Anyways, FitBloggin’ was paradise for someone like me who likes free stuff. The difference there was that EVERYTHING that was being given out was something I wanted and could use. If you’re anything like me and are curious about everything that we got… let me break it down for you.
First up, fitness related things. It was fitbloggin, after all:
- Jillian Michael’s New Book – Unlimited
- New Balance Convertible Headphones
- 3 Fitness DVDs – 10 minute cardio, Jackie Abs, 10 minute workouts
- New Balance Running Shoes
- New Balance Easy Tones
- Ugi Resistance Bands
- Running Socks
- Fit Studio Waterbottle
- New Balance Running Capris
- Ibeani hat (with build in head phones!!!)
- Active 2 Personal Trainer for XBox 360 Kinect
I showed you a close up of the walking easy tones yesterday, here are the running shoes:
Not everyone got 2 pairs of sneakers, but because I have exceptionally large feet, I was lucky enough to receive a second pair (size 9.5). I’ve never owned black sneakers before, and now I own two pairs! love.
And now, for the food related items…
- Egg Spatula
- EatSmart Precision Plus Scale (not food, I know)
- Coach’s Oats
- Attune Bars
- Fiber One 80 Calorie Cereal
- Erewon Cereals
Plus, TONS of coupons for free food, including Eggland’s Best, attune cereals/bars, a case of popchips, and lots of other samples.
It was seriously insane. I had to figure out how to carry all of this home:
So why are there two black bags (to the right)?
Well, one is for you!
I grabbed extra things to giveaway to one reader, and it has a New Balance reusable bag loaded with lots of food coupons, two boxes of cereal, an ibeani hat, a water bottle, a zumba workout DVD, a zumba magazine, larabars, and some other random things that came in the giveaway bags. I’ll probably be throwing some extras in there beyond just what was free from FitBloggin’, so get excited.
