“HIIT It” thank you giveaway

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a lovely morning! I have a pretty exciting giveaway to share with you today, as a “thank you” for all of your wonderful support here on the blog and with “HIIT It!”

I started this little blog at a major transition point in my life. We had just moved to Valdosta which was a little over 1800 miles from lifelong family and friends. It definitely felt like I was starting from scratch. I was also beginning my journey into the fitness world. It was good to have a hobby I truly enjoyed in such an unfamiliar place. Of course, that hobby turned into passion, and the more I learned, the more I wanted to share. The blog became that platform, and it changed my life. I’m so thankful to all of you for stopping by here, and for making this the fun and lovely community that it’s become. My gratitude extends to everyone for helping make “HIIT It!” a reality. So to thank you, I thought I’d put together a huge giveaway prize for a lucky reader featuring some of my favorite things. This isn’t sponsored in any way – it’s just a little love and thanks for all the support you’ve given me. 

Here’s what the lucky winner will receive:

Gratitude giveaway

a LUSH Ocean Salt body scrub (this smells extremely light and fresh, and leave skin super soft)

a Pura Vida bracelet (the same beaded one I wear every day!)

-a Marc by Marc Jacobs mini Natasha crossbody (my very favorite purse)

-an Erin Condren life planner

-an assortment of chocolates, nut butters, bars, and homemade macaroons

-a personalized copy of “HIIT It!” (if you have one already, I can send it to a friend for you!)

Hiit it  1 of 1 2

Here’s how to enter: (3 total possible entries)

-Leave a comment with something that makes you happy 🙂

-If you’d like a bonus entry, it would be amazing if you picked up a copy of “HIIT It!’ (available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble) and left an extra comment. If you preordered (thank you so much!!), be sure to leave an extra comment

-Please help me spread the word! Leave an extra comment to let me know what you did. Did you “HIIT It!” with a friend? Pin/Facebook/tweet/Instagram? Leave an extra comment and let me know how you share the love. <3

The lucky winner will be chosen next Thursday at midnight EST and announced in Friday Faves on Friday, January 30. International friends: since I am shipping this out, I’m happy to send the goodie package anywhere in the world.

Thank you again for being here, and for being such a light in my life.

    Warmer Chicago weather today makes me happy!!!

  5. Michaela on January 29, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    That’s some serious giveaway!
    Very generous of you!
    One thing that makes me happy is good food. I’m a bit obsessed I guess, but at least it’s all veggie based, since I’m a vegan, so surely thinking about veggie Pho and morning glory all day isn’t bad haha

    i picked up HIIT it on kindle! Great bc it’s so easy to bring with me to the gym (I’ve got a kindle app on my phone & my iPad so I can use either one)

  7. Ashley J on January 29, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    Something that makes me happy is my sweet little toddlers (I have twin 2-yr-olds)!! I’ve seen so much toddler-hate on fb lately & I just don’t get it. To me, the newborn stage was Soooo much harder. Now it feels like I’m finally reaping the rewards of all the thankless early parent days. I mean, is there anything better than your kid (finally) telling u they love you? Heart explosion of happiness and love!!!

  8. Ashley J on January 29, 2015 at 7:43 pm

    I put my friend through a grueling HIIT stair master workout! Hurt so good!!

  9. Larissa on January 29, 2015 at 7:44 pm

    Made the quinoa muffins from the book- used the orange flavored dried cranberries (from Trader Joe’s) and chunks of dark chocolate. They were unreal, shared them with the girls and work and they are totally hooked!

    This is an awesome giveaway,Gina! I started following your blog 4 years ago and have not missed a post! Absolutely love your blog.

    Something that is making me happy, is the weather here in Arizona and being able to be outdoors! Love hiking this time of year!

    Hi from New Zealand! I am originally from MN but moved to NZ with my husband. I ordered a copy of your wonderful book for my sister. It made me really happy to know that I can help her out with her fitness and nutrition goals by giving her your book :). Thanks
