My Accidental Watermelon Slushy

It’s summer and it’s hot. And when it’s summer and it’s hot I sometimes like to cool off with a big, drippy slice of watermelon. So yesterday morning I picked up some pre-sliced melon from the grocery store and put it in the spare fridge with a few other things that just wouldn’t fit in my regular fridge.

This morning I’ve been sitting outside, reading my book, soaking up the glorious sunlight and watching my cat chase after the wind. And as I felt myself melting into my lawn chair I figured it was a perfect time to grab a slice of that delectable watermelon. Unfortunately, to my surprise, the temperature on the spare fridge had been turned up to ice-age and everything is frozen.

Now, the remaining items in that fridge can be salvaged once they thaw, but have you ever tried watermelon after it’s been frozen and thawed? It’s mushy and gross. So I just chopped it all up and threw it into my Nutribullet and *whoosh* – I have the most delicious watermelon slushy. I literally have to keep stoping typing so I can take sips. It’s so good and refreshing. I dare you to try it.

Canada Day Contest Winner

Hello All! Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of my Canada Day contest – my very first giveaway.

I was excited to receive and read your comments and to learn your favorite forms of exercise. Thank you so much!

So, from a random draw by my 9 year old nephew – the WINNER is Angela in Missouri. Angela’s favorite exercises are running and yoga (and she plays soccer).

Angela will receive an LED Motion Activated Wristband:

FLIPO PULSE

These little gadgets are awesome! You strap it on your arm like a little bracelet and the pulse of each of your movements flashes the LED light. And it is super bright and has “nighttime visibility up to 1/4 mile.”

FLIP  RUN

I picked one of these little babies up a while back and loved it so much I wanted to share it with all of you. It’s pretty rad.

CONTEST EXTENDED

Not sure if everyone’s heard but we had a hurricane here in my parts this past weekend and I am still without power at my home. So…because of the power outages (and the Canadian and American holidays) I am going to be a dear and extend my Canada Contest until the end of the week. So, if you haven’t yet entered go here https://nsfitbitch.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/happy-canada-day-contest/ and in the comment section tell me what your favorite exercise is and why.

Good luck!

Happy Canada Day!!

I have a fitness friend in the US and I mentioned yesterday that today is Canada Day. He asked me what Canada Day is and “I just mean from a national stand point is it like someone’s birthday or anything significant in the past that happened on this day?” To which I replied something smart-assed and linked him here >> here.

And because we’re celebrating here in Nova Scotia and everywhere else in our spectacular country I thought I’d hold a little celebratory contest. And note: This Giveaway is open to ALL my readers – not just Canadians! 🙂

All you have to do is comment below with your FAVORITE EXERCISE or WORKOUT and WHY. That’s it! That’s all you have to do. Pretty easy, isn’t it?

This contest will be open for ONE WEEK (closing July 7 at noon, my time) so get on it.

The winner will be by random draw and contacted privately for shipping information so be sure to provide me an email address or URL (OR keep an eye out after July 7 on my replies to you to see if you’ve won).

Good luck. 🙂
