Breakfast Bagelwich + Giveaway!

This post is chock-full of FUN STUFF!

First, your regularly scheduled morning blogging… šŸ™‚


Today’s workout was very entertaining. I didn’t get bored once, which is a little rare for 50 minutes of straight cardio.

I started my workout on the treadmill with 35 minutes of incline walking and running… All mixed up!

35 minute alternate incline walking + running workout:

35 Minute Incline Walking/Running Workout

After treadmill time, I hopped on the elliptical with Real Simple magazine and cranked out another 15 minutes of light cardio.


Last night Alternative Bagels were buy one get one free at the grocery store, so I snagged two bags of ’em!

I love the sweet wheat bagels. They’re the perfect size and have only 110 calories with 7 grams of filling fiber. Not too shabby for a bagel, huh?

I topped my toasted bagel with Justin’s maple almond butter and sliced strawberries for a yummy breakfast bagelwich.

It was deeeelish!

I was a lucky little blogger and won my first giveaway ever when Lisa hosted a giveaway for a credit to CSN Stores. (See, it is possible to win a giveaway!)

CSN Stores

After browsing their site (they literally have everything from barstools to kitchen appliances) I used my credit toward a new vacuum.

Now it’s your turn!

To enter this giveaway for a $40 credit to CSN Stores, simply comment on this post stating which product on their site you would like to have. (I have a feeling you guys will be most interested in the products listed on their site.)

I will randomly select a winner tomorrow morning.

    I absolutely love buying new stuff for my kitchen, aside from the fact it makes me feel kinda old to get excited about this stuff! Anyway, I would love to have the Artland Prescott Wine Glass in Aqua (Set of 2). I always buy cheap wine glasses (usually from the dollar store) and it’s time for me to invest in some relatively fancy ones:-)

    Ok so I could have literally written this post this morning. I bought Alternative bagels at the downtown Publix yesterday because they were literally at the front of the store and I couldn’t resist buy 1 get 1 free! This morning I made an egg sandwich on the sweet wheat bagel! I didn’t have time to post this morning, but I will put the pic up tomorrow.

    Too funny! That point of purchase marketing gets me everytime šŸ™‚

    blender please! I am hopefully moving out of my roomies place soon and I wont have one anymore–I’d definitely need a new one.


  5. Madeleine @ Notes On A Page says

    A portable triple frozen drink machine, of course!! OK, maybe I would just get a new blender šŸ™‚


  6. Paige says

    I really need a garlic press and a coffee grinder – this would be the kick in the pants I need to finally get them!

    And I love those packets of peanut butter – so convenient on the go!


  7. says

    You and your 50 minutes of cardio always cracks me up! I love how dedicated you are to getting it in, but it makes me giggle that 50 is for some reason your “magic number”. Gotta do what works for ya though! šŸ™‚

    This is a great giveaway and something I would definitely love! I would like maybe a new pan. Although there are SO many things I would love love love that we could use.

      isn’t it weird??? i don’t know when i started doing 50 min., but now it just seems like the “perfect” amount. so odd!


  8. Amanda says

    I just decided this morning that I need a food processor. Nothing big but something like the Black & Decker Mini Pro Plus Food Processor.


  9. Maura says

    What a great giveaway! My roommate actually used to work for CSN stores! Small world…anyway, I would probably pick the Hamilton Beach FreshChop Food Chopper. Mine broke recently. šŸ™ Have a fab day everyone!


  10. MelissaNibbles says

    7.2 incline!? Oh my gosh…you are a warrior!

    It must be the week of death for vacuums because mine just died on Sunday. I would totally get a new vacuum if I won your giveaway!!

    Have a wonderful day!!


  11. Meg says

    I need a new blender, or a spiralizer!!! šŸ˜€

    I’ve never heard of those bagels, hmm, the almond butter + strawberries – now that’s a good combo that I HAVE heard of šŸ˜‰

    Wow, thanks for the great giveaway! I have an Aeron chair that I love, so I would love to out the $40 toward one for my boyfriend!


  13. Michelle says

    Isn’t nice to get new things for the house?!?!
    I’m about to close on my FIRST HOME, and can’t wait to get out all of our wedding gifts (that have been in the closet for almost 3 years), as well as buy new stuff to fill it with! We need a new vacuum, too. But what I would L.O.V.E. to have is the EatSmart Precision Pro in Digital Kitchen in Red


    the Farberware Large Two Tone Bamboo Cutting Board Set

    Thanks for the info, I’ve never heard of this site!


  16. Katie says

    I would get a toaster oven! I’ve always wanted one and now that I’m living by myself for six months… it’d be perfect for my indiviudal sized pizza šŸ™‚


  17. says

    I love Alternative bagels. I buy them when sprouts put them on 2 for 1. Hard to pass up a BOGO deal!

    I would go with an immersion blender or heartrate monitor…or stick vacuum or new sheets….or….there’s SO MUCH! šŸ™‚


  18. Dena Semkowski says

    Woohoo! They ship to Canada!

    I would more than LOVE to buy myself a cast iron skillet. My mama use to have one and used it for everything when I was a youngster! šŸ™‚
