    WIN! Cardio Coach audio workouts – DG 11th Birthday Sell Out Day 7

    Dietgirl 11th Birthday Sell Out!The prize:
    One lucky winner will receive all eight volumes of Cardio Coach high intensity interval MP3 workout downloads. Ten runners up will each win a copy of Volume 2.

    Available to readers from: Worldwide

    What the heck is it?
    Cardio Coach™ is a downloadable audio high intensity interval workout programme for any MP3 player and you can use it for just about any cardio activity – treadmill, elliptical, stepper, rower, cycling, jogging, walking). Cardio Coach has a patented levels and zone system which means you can make it work for you no matter your fitness level, from beginner to advanced.

    Why I dig it
    I'm dead chuffed that the Cardio Coach folks were up for a third appearance in the Sell Out. I'm still a huge fan and in the past year have introduced some of my Up & Running pals to the delights of Sexy Sean, as he's become known on the forums.

    I remain a non-lover of cardio and Sexy Sean makes it sooo much easier to bear. I still can't describe it any better as I did way back in 2007:

    .. a dude called Sean O'Malley with a rather sexy voice tells you exactly what to do; suitable for any piece of cardio equipment. When to go fast, when to go slow, when to stretch; it really does make the time go faster! I have conversations with Sean in my head. I hate you Sean. Oh we're almost there? Fine then. I'll do it. Only for you. Fetch me another bottle of water Sean. You're the best Sean. HIGHLY recommended.

    Cardio Coach

    Your coach, Sean O'Malley

    WIN! A month’s supply of Total Greek Yoghurt + Zest magazine subscription – DG 11th Birthday Sell Out Day 6

    Dietgirl 11th Birthday Sell Out!The prize:
    One lucky winner will receive a month's supply of Total Greek Yogurt plus a 12-month subscription to Zest magazine, courtesy of the Total Greek Yogurt folks.

    Available to readers from: UK only. Sorry!

    What the heck is it?
    Total Greek Yoghurt is delicious, thick, creamy yoghurt that leaves all other yoghurts whimpering in the aisles, cursing their inferiority. This of course is just my opinion… dinnae sue me, hen. Zest magazine is a leading UK health and fitness magazine.

    Total 2% greek yogurt

    The lucky winner of this prize can linger over their magazine while enjoying the following yoghurt bonanza:

    – 2 x 500g tubs of 2%
    – 2 x 500g tubs of 0%
    – 4 x  0% Greek Yoghurt Split pot (blueberry, honey, tropical fruits and strawberry)
    – 1 kilo Classic Greek Yoghurt

    Whoever you are, lucky winner, I am SPEWING with jealousy already.

    (Total lasts for ages in the fridge so the winner should be able to get through it all, otherwise they can share it with your pals. Or me!)

    Instant frozen yogurt

    Why I dig it
    If you've been reading awhile you'll have heard me bang on and on about this yoghurt. My Greek goddess friend Argy introduced us in 2005 and the love affair has been going strong ever since.

    It's more versatile than Meryl Streep:

    Total have just launched a new website with lots of recipes and useful info from their TOTAL Living Team, consisting of TV Chef Paul Merrett, nutritionist Martin Macdonald and Daybreak Fitness expert Dee Thresher. They’ll be hosting live Q&A sessions, providing video content, recipes, meal and exercise plans, news and competitions. You can check it out at totalgreekyoghurt.com

    WIN! MizFit’s My Trainer Fitness workout cards – DG 11th Birthday Sell Out Day 5

    Dietgirl 11th Birthday Sell Out!The prize:
    One lucky winner will receive a set of My Trainer Fitness 100 Calorie Workout cards, featuring the one and only Carla "MizFit" Birnberg.

    Available to readers from: Worldwide.

    What the heck is it?
    My Trainer Fitness 100 Calorie Workouts are a nifty six-pack of cards, each with a workout on it that can be performed in under 20 minutes. Each is designed to facilitate a 100+ calorie burn with each workout, including periods for rest and recovery.

    Why I dig it
    This prize is kind of like the goodness of Carla distilled into a card. Among the many things I've learned from years of friendship (and haphazard podcasting) with this awesome woman is: when it comes to working out keep it simple. Rather than worrying if you're doing the right activity or have the right gear (guilty), just pick something and go for it. It doesn't have to be fancy – just consistent.

    These cards a great example of this philopsphy. They don't require much space or equipment. You can use resistance bands and dumbells but can substitute heavy books or cans. Lots of the exercises are simply your own bodyweight. It's an efficient, straightforward workout in a highly portable format. And our Carla is right there on the cards showing you exactly what to do. I love it!

    Carla in your pocket

    There is one set of My Trainer Fitness 100-Calorie Workout cards to be won. This prize is sponsored by me, and I'll post 'em to anywhere on the globe so everyone is welcome to enter!

    WIN! £45 sports bra voucher from Less Bounce – DG 11th Birthday Sell Out Day 4

    Dietgirl 11th Birthday Sell Out!The prize:
    One lucky winner will receive a £45 gift voucher to spend at Less Bounce, including free worldwide shipping.

    Available to readers from: Worldwide

    What the heck is it?
    Less Bounce is an online sportswear retailer. It's where I purchased my first Enell scaffolding in 2004. I rocked up to my next Body Combat class and nearly wept for joy. Jumping kicks are much easier when you're not clutching your chest protectively!

    Why I dig it
    After those dark years of inadequate support, I'm evangelical about the joys of a good sports bra. I've yelled "GET A SPORTS BRA" at unrestrained chests on the telly so many times that Gareth now pre-empts, "Don't tell me. She should get a sports bra."

    So, LessBounce is a UK company started by fitness instructor and personal trainer Selaine Saxby when she couldn't find a good sports bra locally. They stock a huge range of sports bras suitable for all sports for chests of all shapes and sizes. They've got good brands like Freya, Berlei, Champion, Triumph and Panache. As well as sports bras they stock swimwear, maternity bras, and sportswear! They have great customer service, a handy bra finder on the homepage and they ship worldwide.

    I asked Selaine if she'd be up for donating a prize for a third year running and she was kind enough to do so. They really do cater to a wide range of sizes, so if you have boobs this one's for you!

    There is one £45 Less Bounce voucher (including free worldwide shipping) to be won. Simply leave a comment on this blog entry to enter.

    What the heck is it?

    Weight Loss Resources

    Why I dig it
    Yep, it's the third year in a row I've given away this prize, but WLR is still one of my favourite tools. I like my mindful eating stuff but I'm a data nerd too. While I keep a Food/Mood journal on my Google Spreadsheet, I use WLR to check the nutritional balance of new recipes or to keep a closer eye on my intake now and then. I don't have any emotional attachment to numbers these days and I like balancing the mindful stuff with some good ol' data.

    I've used WLR since 2004 and had found the interface a little dated in the last couple of years, but they recently did a major redesign and it rocks! It's so clean, well-organised and intuitive. It's a great site for UK folks and they offer a free one-day trial so you can have a good nose around – you can find out more at weightlossresources.co.uk.

    There is one three-month Weight Loss Resources membership to be won. Simply leave a comment on this blog entry to enter.

    WIN! $100 Cathe Downloads voucher – DG 11th Birthday Sell Out Day 2

    Dietgirl 11th Birthday Sell Out!The prize:
    One $100 USD voucher for Cathe Downloads.

    Available to readers from: Worldwide.

    What the heck is it?
    Cathe Friedrich has reigned as the home fitness queen since the days of VHS but she always moves with the times! Her entire 150+ workout catalogue in available digital format, so you can watch your downloads on any computer or video-enabled mobile device, such an iPhone.

    Why do you dig it?
    I'm a longtime Cathe fan and I like the convenience of the downloads – no fiddling with DVDs, great for travelling and no international shipping fees! I wrote a review of Cathe Downloads back in 2009, including a list of my favourite Cathe workouts. Since then I've become hooked on her new Low Impact Series which delivers a comprehensive butt kicking while being gentle on your joints. From interval training to spinning to yoga to step to circuits, I'm impressed at her creativity at coming up with so many ways to get the heart rate working without the knees protesting!

    Cathe Low Impact DVD

    Nerdy aside
    Cathe did an exercise class at the Fitbloggin conference last May. I can happily report that she makes you work just as hard in person as when trapped inside your computer. And she signed my paper plate. Swoon!

    She signed my PLATE. Dude.

    This plate was used for exercises, not eating 🙂

    There is one $100 USD Cathe Downloads voucher to be won. Simply leave a comment on this blog entry to enter.

    WIN! ‘An Honest Kitchen’ magazine – DG 11th Birthday Sell Out Day 1

    Dietgirl 11th Birthday Sell Out!The prize:
    Ten winners will each receive one copy of Cooking For One, the latest offering from An Honest Kitchen, the e-magazine all about delicious, simply prepared seasonal food. 

    Available to readers from: Worldwide

    What the heck is it?
    An Honest Kitchen is the creation of nutritionist and writer Kathryn Elliott of Limes & Lycopene and food writer and photographer Lucinda Dodds of Nourish Me. The magazine is about, "real food that's good for you". Their trademark is easy, healthy recipes packed with flavour and made with easy-to-find ingredients. They also offer recipe variations and tips, all served in a totally accessible and non-pretentious way.

    Why do you dig it?
    The Cooking For One mini edition is fab. You get three tasty recipes with variations and ideas for leftover ingredients. Since it's meals for one they’ve also cut down on the washing up and found ways to minimise food waste. Next on my To Cook list is the Paprika Chicken with Rice and Vegetables which has a zesty picada on the side. I'd never heard of a picada before but it's a sauce type of thing with almonds, lemon zest, parsley and fresh tomato… yummo. As with all issues of An Honest Kitchen it's written in a friendly, non-jargony style and the photographs are lovely. You can check out Cooking For One and previous editions of the mag right here.

    There are ten copies of An Honest Kitchen Cooking For One e-magazine to be won. Simply leave a comment on this blog entry to enter.
