Giveaway Week–Day 5 (my favorite!)

by Courtney on December 23, 2011

**This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered!**

Oooo Oooo – Merry Christmas Eve Eve (yes, it’s a day I’ve been “celebrating” for years)! I sorta feel like as the day goes on today, I’m going to end up looking more and more like this guy…

Hopefully I can pull it together. Winking smile

*****

I have a funny feeling that there are going to be some cookies in my future today (you’ll see why in a second), so I made sure to take some precautionary measures this morning in an attempt to balance things out.

First up – Workout

I was in the mood for cardio today so I decided to do my Pyramid Treadmill Workout. My latest adjustment to make to that workout is to substitute the 5 minutes @ 6.0mph with 1 minute @ 8.5mph. That way, it shaves about 4 minutes off my time and ups the intensity just a teeny bit more. Give it a try!

Next up – Prep a Healthy Lunch

This actually caused somewhat of a conundrum this morning with breakfast. As I was making breakfast, I also figured I’d prep lunch. I knew I wanted to fill up with lots of veggies and protein, so I whipped up a quick veggie & egg scramble, complete with a melted wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese.

Well this thing ended up smelling so darn good that I almost switched things up last minute. Thank goodness I didn’t, because breakfast was incredible today. Which brings me to…

Next Step – A Hearty, Healthy Breakfast

Not that this isn’t always the case, but ya know.

IMG_0976

Today’s bowl of oatmeal was extra special, thanks to one mini piece of prep work. After I finished my workout this morning, I filled my usual saucepot with 1/3 cup water and 2 teaspoons chia seeds. I let the seeds soak while I was getting ready, so by the time I came out, they were already starting to absorb the water and “puff” up.

I finished making my oats as usual (topped with some more Love Blondies) and was left was a fluffy, voluminous bowl of deliciousness.

Last Step – Lots of Water!

I loaded up my water bottles today and plan on making several trips to the bathroom chugging like it’s my job.

*****

IMPORTANT INFO AHEAD – KEEP READING! Open-mouthed smile

So last night, I ended up being pretty busy in the kitchen, putting together all of these…

IMG_0959

Finally! Time to share all the goodies that came about after all those hours of cookie baking. Hubby has his tray to bring to work…

IMG_0960

I have my tray to bring to work (hence the reason I am foreseeing cookies in my future today!)…

IMG_0962

And then I wound up with this other tin…

IMG_0964

Hmmm…what shall I do with this extra tin of Homemade Christmas Cookies?

IMG_6558 (640x480)

Ohhhhhh, I know! It’s Day 5 of Giveaway Week, isn’t it??

Well isn’t that just perfect! How ‘bout we put these babies up for grabs? Winking smile

As out final, Day 5, of Giveaway Week, one lucky winner will receive a tin of Homemade Christmas Cookies, courtesy of Yours Truly!

I am most thankful for having my cousin home and safe for the first time in 3 years from Afghanistan. My family hasn’t been able to see him or celebrate a holiday with him in so long because he is special ops in the military. So this year we finally get to see him and his now 1 year old son. I can’t tell you how thankful I am for this. It’s the one and only thing I wanted this year. =]

This may seem like a cop out on a blog about healthy living, but I am truly thankful for my health this holiday season. This year, a close family friend was diagnosed with an aggressive form of esophageal cancer that requires intense chemotherapy. He was in the best shape of his life, running every morning and achieving his “college weight,” when suddenly his life completely changed. Luckily he has incredible faith in God, an amazing wife, and three beautiful children who will help him get through these tough times, but his story truly makes me appreciate each day that I am able to get up and exercise.

my grandmother unexpectedly passed away on what will be exactly two weeks two the day before christmas. After the shock of her death settled, many of us found orselves asking the question of what to do for christmas. My grandmother was christmas, and it is just not going to be the same. WHile her passing has been no means easy, i think that there is something to be taken from every situation (good and bad). My grandmother`s sudden and unexpected death has taught me to appreciate a little more the beaultiful blessing of life. I think that sometimes it is, in fact, the fragility of life and the unexpectedness of death that makes our existance on this earth so precious. While it is not uncommon to become caught up in fear when faced with the prospect of death, i have learned that nothing is certain. Things are constantly changing and there is no way to predict when our time might be up. With that said i think that it is important to focus on living life to the fullest, this christmas in particular, as we attempt to come to terms with this sad event. Life is beautiful. I am so thankful to have been blessed with a beautiful grandmother whom i have shared many great memories with. I am also so very thankful for my loving family and how close we have become in this time of sorrow. merry christmas courtney love your blog :)

It was amazing but it wasn’t the same as celebrating with family. I am also grateful for the relationship I now have with my brother and his wife. As they gear up to move across the country again. I’m glad I don’t feel like I am losing either of them during this transition.

First of all I have to say how excited I am to see that you are giving away your home baked cookies! I have been drooling every day that you post a new one!

My step-father passed away in March of this year while on a cruise with my mom. My mom has had an awful time dealing with this and I am so thankful that she is able to come to Wisconsin from Florida and spend time with all of the family here that love her so much. My mom is my best friend and I am so lucky and thankful to have her in my life.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday!

I am thankful that my husband and my families live so close, although my husband won’t be home until monday morning and has to work new years eve and new years day (he’s a firefighter and picked up extra time), I still have our families to spend the holiday with. And I know that as we grow to become a family more than the two of us, they will be there for all the holidays!

I don’t think I could name just one thing I am thankful but mostly I’m thankful to have my family and loved ones on Christmas! My grandfather has cancer, and any holiday he can make it to makes our family grateful! My boyfriend also just made it through surgery with ease! So I’m totally grateful for all the people in my life! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with all your loved ones!
