Goodie Bag Giveaway!! - CLOSED

So I started today on the right track for SBSD...Turbo Jam abs, seriously I am in love with this ab workout. Then I went to work. Got frustrated. Had two pieces of cake and a fun size pack of M&M's. Excellent. After that I decided I should clearly have more than enough energy for a good run... and I DID!!!

6 miles straight through no walking. I definitely have some cardio to get back, geez that was way harder than I remember but I did it and hopefully I burned off that cake and am back on my way to good abs.

Thanks for all the encouragement about the marathon. I think you're all a little nutz, but that's why I like you....and of course why I want to give you GOODIES!

I have been on a kick lately of telling you about great foods...that doesn't seem fair now does it.. you should be eating these great foods too!! So go here to enter my giveaway >>
