The birthday month celebrations continue! And, as promised, the prize package for the winner of this week’s workout challenge giveaway is even larger than last week’s (they’ll get bigger as the AMRAP workout gets longer). Everyone who completes yesterday’s 20-Minute AMRAP Bodyweight Workout by Sunday night can enter to win:
Gaiam Ultra-Dri Hot Yoga Mat
This Gaiam yoga mat is a towel-mat combo that’s perfect for hot yoga. When your hands start to get sweaty, the microfiber “towel” top prevents you from sliding around and really helps your grip. I took it to my first hot yoga class the other week and loved it. I’d still use a rubber mat for regular yoga (if your hands are dry, poses like Downward Dog can be a slippery on the soft towel surface), but it’s great when the sweat starts dripping!
I also have been using it when I’m at home stretching after a workout or foam rolling because it’s much softer and comfier than normal exercise mats when you don’t need as much grip.
Since buying my own, I’ve been posting more and more workouts on P&I that use a stability ball, and thought it’d be fun to give one away so you can follow along at home. I’ll ask the winner for their height so that I make sure to get the right sized stability ball.
A Copy of Get Skinny Again! by Sarah Dussault
You may know Sarah Fit from her popular YouTube channel or blog, but she’s now an author as well, and this week’s winner will get a copy of her first book, Get Skinny Again! The bulk of the book outlines different exercises and workouts you can do—at home, at the gym, or to target specific muscle groups. Each exercise is accompanied by a photo of the move and detailed description of how to do it, along with any added tips Sarah has.
The book then gets into diet—tips for eating healthy, some recipes, and even getting into juicing. The last section covers general tips for living a healthy life—going out to eat without sabotaging your diet, balancing fitness with a social life, finding a routine that works for you, etc. These topics, in my opinion, are what separate being on “a health kick” from living and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It’s all about balance, yo.
Halo Top Ice Cream
Halo Top ice cream is non-GMO, sweetened with organic stevia to lower the sugar content, and only 280 calories per pint (for the vanilla bean flavor). Most pints of ice cream are three to four times that calorie count, and I’d know that because I’ve taken down entire pints in one sitting before. This ice cream is great to have on hand if you’re craving dessert but don’t want to throw a whole day of healthy eating down the tube—in ¼ of a pint (a couple scoops), you’re only looking at 70 calories. Boom!
Halo Top sent me samples of their four flavors, and my boyfriend and I took down the vanilla bean in like 15 minutes flat, so clearly it passes my taste test. 🙂 The texture is slightly different than other ice cream—almost like a sorbet at first, and then creamy as it melts in your mouth.
