A Grande Skinny Giveaway!

I am really excited about this, because I think you are all fantastic. You support me every day by reading this blog, by leaving comments, or checking in. Just knowing that there's a group of people out there cheering me on is what I need sometimes to keep my healthy lifestyle train on the rails. And not, you know, in a giant plate of poutine.

The kind folks over at CSN have offered you, Grande Skinny Latte readers, a chance to win a super $40 gift certificate for any of their online stores.

I checked out their site and they have pretty much everything. I was really excited about these Dutch ovens - Le Creuset cookware is on my fantasy wedding registry list. (Along with a KitchenAid Mixer and a full set of crystal stemware!) Not that I'm getting married anytime soon.



Gary, don't you want some of these awesome cast-iron pots? Seriously? I'd use them to make you some of this awesome no-knead bread!! Yes, this is a diet blog, but everything in moderation, right?

Or if you were more virtuous, you could get this weighted hula hoop.



Imagine the abs you'd have after using this sucker for a few months!

But I can't hula hoop, so I'd probably reward myself with these:



Because Mama likes to make irresonsible footwear decisions on someone else's dime.

So! What will you spend your gift certificate on?

To enter, do one or all of the following before MIDNIGHT on Wednesday, August 4th. Each one will give you a chance to win!

1. Leave a comment below telling me what you're most looking forward to doing this August.
2. Follow this blog and leave me a comment below saying you are a follower.
3. Mention this giveaway on your blog - be sure to leave a link in the comments to let me know you've done it!

Good luck!

Unfortunately, contest is only open to readers in Canada and the USA. Canucks, additional shipping fees may apply.

I'm looking forward to it cooling down in August! July is the hottest month for us and we have no air conditioning!

What a great idea! I love it!

If I won, I would buy "The Biggest Loser" Wii game - I've had my eye on it, but am too cheap to actually indulge in it. :)
