Fit Friday/Bloggy Giveaways

***THE GIVEAWAY MENTIONED ON THIS POST IS NOW CLOSED***
***THANKS FOR STOPPING BY, HAVE A GREAT DAY!***

Halloween is upon us and not only am I so thankful for the candy season to be over, I'm also thankful that the family down the street will be taking down their Hollywood grade, life size murder and graveyard scene. I'm hoping for it to be replaced with some pumpkins and haybales soon so I can once again drive by without giving my kiddos nightmares.

As of tonight, all the good candy will be given away. No more peanut M & Ms to tempt this girl. The faux chocolates that Lily brings home from the neighborhood just don't appeal to me, so I'm hoping to get this diet of mine up and running again.

I do have one lingering chunk of chocolate that I've decided to giveaway lest I commit sin and consume it. This Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate bar will be on its way to one of your lovely homes. Then you can be tempted by its tagline..."twilight delight"..."moments of timeless pleasure".


Be sure to let me know in your comment if you want the candy bar. I'll pick a winner tomorrow morning.

As far as Fit Friday goes, I had a decent week all things considered. With Jade's ear tube/adenoid removal surgery being scheduled for today, I din't want to have her in the gym nursery much. Of course she ended up coming down with a slight fever last night anyway, so now we aren't sure if the surgery is going to happen afterall. I did get in one cardio workout and one good workout with weights. And I managed to shed .5 lb. Whoopee.

I hope that your Hot for the Holidays week went well. I'm looking forward to checking in on everyone when I get home this afternoon.

For more Hot for the Holidays/Fitness Fridays go here.

For more Bloggy Giveaways go here.

Have a fun night with your little ones.

getpalmd said...

Dawn @ Coming to a Nursery Near You said...

asking me if I want chocolate is like asking me if I want to BREATHE LOL

Plus, I LOVE dark chocolate :)

AND

dark chocolate is healthy - lots of antioxidants (whatever THOSE are) :D

Lisa said...

As long as she is fever free when she goes in this am it should still be a go, 3 of my kids have had this surgery and one had repeates with a toncil removeal. Good luck with it.

If it had been Milk Chocolate I would have been down on my knees begging you! But for dark guess because it's healthy...I'll pass. Grin. I hope things go well with your baby today.
Have a great week.

Lisa said...

Hey fit friday sistah! I guess it would really defeat the purpose if I said I desperately want that chocolate. Don't give it to me. For Fit Friday's sake:) I'm happy to have Halloween be over, but I'll be even happier when all my kid's candy is gone!! Then comes the Thanksgiving bounty.....not so good for the diet either....

Kim said...

Mmmm...dark chocolate, the darker the better in my opinion!

Good for you getting rid of all the chocolate. That is awesome. If it's not around you can't eat it. Good job on the 1/2 lbs...that's still progress.

rebecca said...

Why, oh why is dark chocolate so delicious?? I think the fact that it is "healthier" than milk chocolate makes me think it's more okay... But it is SO good! I'd love to have it!

Do NOT send that chocolate to my house! I'm going to have enough temptation with the Halloween candy we'll be collecting tonight.

I did want to say that half a pound is half a pound. Way to go!! Have a great week.

Cami & Martin said...

I would love this candy bar. According to Biggest Loser: Trainer Tips, if you've got to have chocolate, go dark because it has antioxidants (or something or other!)

I've been eating more and more dark chocolate lately. Has way more health benefits than milk chocolate goes and I guess I acquired a taste for it. I now like it more than I do milk chocolate.
Thanks for the great giveaway and have a safe and Happy Halloween.

I hope your daughter had a good recovery. I'm a nurse and have had a lot of patients that have had those procedures done, so I hope things went well.
Sure, I'm in for the chocolate - it's dark chocolate, the best kind!

WOW! 105 comments before mine. I LOVE dark chocolate... But I am trying to loose 10... So not for me! You would have thought though (if you saw me eating tonight) that I was looking to gain 10! UGH! Halloween, what a joke! Hope you were able to get the surgery done today, and that Jade is feeling good. Have a great weekend!

Coupon Mommie said...

My husband would probably take the chocolate before I could even think to open it. HA!
