SlimKicker GIVEAWAY: Win a Kitchen Scale!

27 Jul

For many years, I’ve known that the easiest way for me to stay at my healthiest is by tracking what I eat.  For a long time it was in a journal, then a spreadsheet, and in the past year or so I’ve relied on sites and apps to do the tracking.  By far, using phone apps has been the easiest way to track since I always have it on hand.

I’ve recently tried a new app by SlimKicker that I really like.  SlimKicker is a diet tracker and game that turns diet and fitness goals into a level-up game with points, rewards and challenges. You level up by tracking healthy calories and exercises, and completing challenges such as quitting soda for a week.  The thing I like the best about it is the way in which it provides nutritional information.  I have not found an easier way to determine whether I’m eating the right amounts of protein, calroies, carbs, fat, and fiber.  If you have an iPhone, I’d highly recommend this free app (or by their site if you do not use an iPhone).

And now that we’re on the topic of FREE, SlimKicker has generously offered to give away an Ozeri Touch Digital Kitchen Scale to one lucky Calamity Jennie reader who comes up with the best new challenge idea.

Here’s how it works:

1. Leave a comment on this entry with your challenge idea.
2. Each challenge duration should be at least a week long and no longer than a month.
3. Challenges can be geared toward fitness, food, or overall wellness.
4. Try to keep your challenges simple to understand and capture the idea in 1-2 sentences.
5. You may add up two entries.  Enter each as its own comment.

Rules: SlimKicker will select their favorite idea and use it on their site.  A winner will be selected on Friday, August 3, 2012.  This contest is open to U.S. Residents only.

Need some examples?  Here are a few from SlimKicker’s Recommended list:
– No snacks after dinner for a week
– Replace soda with water for the next 7 days
– Move during commercials when you’re watching TV this week

****

WINNER!  SlimKicker likes your suggestion, Carrie!  So much so, they are excited to give you a kitchen scale. Enjoy using it to weigh your vegetables.

“My challenge idea is to eat 5 servings of vegetables a day. When I do this, I don’t have room left over for un-healthy stuff!”

Great idea, Carrie!

Cocktail Cards! or, Everybody Loves a Giveaway.

5 Jul

To celebrate the launch of the new CalamityJennie site, we’re having our first ever GIVEAWAY!  And it can be yours for the very low price of FREE.

Introducing: Cocktail Cards

Nothing says “I’m sophisticated” like a “Signature Cocktail”.  Think outside of the box of wine or can of beer and step into sophistication with a Signature Cocktail.  Beyond the traditional and standard order, Cocktail Cards provide you with a drink idea that is tailored to the season.  This set includes two Signature Cocktail Cards that are perfect for the Summer Season – Bourbon Slush (Summer 2010) and Tequila and Tonic (Summer 2011).  You don’t need to decide which is right for you, because you’ll get both!  Sized just like a baseball card, each card features a glamour shot of the cocktail, with all of the stats and figures printed on the back.  Each card is placed in a protective sleeve that should help you from ruining it the first time you accidentally use it as a coaster (Side note: not safe to use as a coaster, even in the sleeve).

Cocktail Cards FAQ’s
Q: I don’t get it.  What are you talking about?
A: You’ve never heard of drink recipes printed in a handy baseball card size, that are suitable for trading, even though no one else has any for which you could actually trade?  Huh.

Q: Will you just send me the drinks instead of the cards?
A: No, I will not.  The ice would never hold up.

Q: What if I don’t like the drinks?
A:  Ha ha, that’s funny.

Want your very own limited edition* set of Cocktail Cards?  Email your name and mailing address to: jennie@calamityjennie.com

With your contact info in hand, I promise the following:
1. I will not sell or distribute your name on any sort of black market mailing list subscription service, no matter what they offer me to do so.  Unless it is super good, in which case I’ll at least think about it before declining.
2. I will not toilet paper your yard even though I’ll have your address, and it would be super easy. 
3. I will not send you other things you did not request, such as Hair Club for Men videos.  Not that I’ve ever done that (except for that one summer).
4. For as long as I’m able, or as long as my interest in this project holds out, I’ll keep sending you new Cocktail Cards featuring that season’s signature drink.  If you want out, just email me to let me know.  No sweat.

*Please note: Limited quantities available, much like my attention span.
