Merry Christmas - Karli Clause is here!

Hello Wednesday readers! So I know I have been talking about how it's almost Christmas time which made me think how I'd love to be able to give you all a Christmas gift! Not only that, but my bloggy poo has reached 100 followers! Who woulda thought 100 people who care what I had to say? Certainly not moi.


I thought long and hard what to gift you all with and I thought, why not choose a gift that I myself would love to have! Something I rant and rave about! Something that can be used all year long! Can you all guess what that gift is? What product do I always say I get amazing workout ideas out of? OXYGEN MAGAZINE! I am giving my winner of this giveaway a 1 year subscription to Oxygen magazine to start their new year out with a bang (or a sweat sesh). What better time to start your healthy lifestyle than the beginning of the year?




Oxygen Magazine is filled to the brim with amazing workout tips, clean eating recipes, real life stories from women of ALL ages, and advice columns. My favorite thing about Oxygen magazine is there monthly routines. Right now, they are having a 3 month workout program to get 2011 started right. I plan on following it to a T to get this body in check after little T arrives. I have had amazing results with previous month to month plans they have organized, so if things aren't broke, don't fix it! Right? Right! I can't think of a better gift for you all.

2 Extra Enties - Leave me a comment and tell me why YOU want 12 FREE issues of Oxygen Magazine shipped to your house

Count me in!! And I'd want a year subscription cause a girl could always use some new work out tips!! Gym memberships around the city are super expensive (I'm talking over 100 bucks a month) so I always need some new tip that I could use at home.

Kourtney said...

I've been following your blog for a couple weeks now! I love your motivation.

Kourtney said...

I want 12 free issues of Oxygen so I can try out these monthly routines you talk about! I had a little boy this year and need that pre-baby bod back NOW!!

Kourtney said...

My all-time favorite healthy recipe is teriyaki chicken---throw some chicken on the grill, brush on just a little teriyaki sauce...grill up some pineapple pieces and serve it all with brown rice and some steamed broccoli, carrots, snow peas, or whatever sounds good to you!

I just stumped across your blog.. I am so glad I did! I am following you now! :)

smooched said...

I dont just want it, I really NEED a 'bible' of work out routines seriously. I have a 10 month old daughter so I really need to start and get my pre-body! And I know it does have lot of yummy health food recipes!

I can never seem to get to the gym. I work full-time. My husband has two jobs. I have two kids. I bet Oxygen would have some great 'workout at home' tips.

OMG love this!! I'm a follower!

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

I'd love to have Oxygen Magazine because I am soooooo tired and over Shape and Fitness I think it's more for the just starting out people I need some real workout girls like the ones on these covers!

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

My favorite clean eating is just the easy stuff usually I'll make chicken breast tenders with olive oil and lemon pepper on the grill, steamed veggies and cous cous.

Laura said...

I love to be included in your giveaway! I wouldn't mind this subscription because...well...let's face it, who knows how easy it'll be to shed those baby pounds (though they are few) come 2011. And I like fitness magazines, so I'm all about it. :)

Have a Merry Christmas!

Hello...

I have have been reading your blog for a few months along with others & yours by far I enjoy reading the most because you crack me up. Especially when you post pictures to go with your emotions....to HILARIOUS!!! I just recently started my own blog just to try & win the Oxygen Magazine which I really desperately need. I'm over weight & could really use the help to get healthy. I'm really inspired by your posts. Your so healthy & motivated. I need motivation big time. I'm currently on blood pressure meds as of 3 months ago & not happy about it at all. I have a beautiful 4 year old I need to stay healthy for & a wonderful husband. Thanks for making me laugh daily & congrats with your pregnancy & being a Mom when Troy gets here. It's the Raddest thing in the world to be a MOM!! Take care!

Just found your blog and am a follower. Would have become one regadless of your contest ... just thought you should know :)

Just want to say you have the cutest little preggy belly. Wish you all the best with the birth. I've only read a few extnries but can tell you are full of life and energy. Look forward to catching up on your blog.

I love Oxygen magazine and used to buy it regularly. However, the economy and financial risks taken at the wrong time has hit my family hard so I can't afford to buy it anymore. It's a great magazine filled with tons of excellent advice, such a great tool.

Heidi said...

One of my favourite clean eating recipes is slow cooked chicken breast in hot sauce, wrapped in lettuce and filled with sauted peppers and onions.

I AM ENTERING!!! I love Oxygen and Women's Health but I only have a subscription to WH.

I would love to share a clean eating recipe but I don't have any. I mean I know that I have made some healthy stuff in my cooking career as a wife, But none that I know are "CLEAN" off the top of my head. I do want to start eating clean. It is on my to do list before the New year to start menu planning as a way to start a healthy journey.

So I guess I could share my Green beans.

I use frozen French cut and I "Saute" them in a pan. I add a little EVOO, salt, pepper and/or garlic salt or other seasoning I feel will go with the meal I decide. I cook them until I feel they are done, not to soggy, I like them firm and a few to be a tad crispy YUM!

I would love the subscription cause I feel like I wasted my 20's being overweight and I FINALLY have started making the changes needed and am seeing some major weight loss- Oxygen can help make my 30's what I want them to be!
