Great Giveaway!!!

Giveaway put on by Rita at www.gigglybits.com!   Or more appropriately, a scavenger hunt to get a blog giveaway.  I have two heart rate monitors.  A Garmin beauty that was my goal weight present and I also have my Polar F11, that happens to be pink.  I no longer use my Polar and for about 8 months it has been gathering dust.  Until now 🙂  In the spirit of de-cluttering my life, I’m gifting my old heart rate monitor to a reader who can put it to better use than I.  Sorry boys, it’s incredibly girly, but wives, girlfriends? Heck you can wear it under long sleeves, I’ll never tell!

I call her Fizzy (but of course, renaming is alright) and she looks like this, fabulously awesome child not included, however you will look as badass as she does wearing it:

If you want to check out a new one on Amazon, just click the picture and you can read all about your possible future favourite workout buddy!

But there is a catch of course.  This is a crazy expensive HRM even if I have sweat on it a bit (actually, I sweat 90lbs onto it so I’m sure it’s depreciated a lot, or is that good karma?!) If you would like to be entered in to win this bad boy, you’ll need to follow the instructions below:

1.       Follow the link below to the first blog.

2.       Contained in that post will be the words: Password Letter: F  — followed by a link to another blog.

Update No Password Anymore… Just Comment on the blogs!!

3.       Leave a thoughtful comment on the blog, make note of the letter, and follow the link to the next blog. You can’t win unless you have a comment on each blog!

4.       Repeat, comment, letter, link.

5.       Repeat this until you are linked back to this page. There are 7 other blogs to visit.

6.       Once you have all the letters (Capital letters please!), in the order they were linked, (they DO NOT spell anything) enter them in the password box here: POLAR GIVEAWAY PAGE 

7.       Leave one last comment on that page just saying hi, or holy crap that was a lot of commenting.

8.       There is an additional way to enter detailed on the POLAR GIVEAWAY PAGE page as well.

The contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada only because I am going to cover the postage myself.

I no longer have the instruction manual (because I threw everything away!) but it can be found here. All other information can be found on the Giveaway Page.

Let’s get started, here’s your first link:

The Incredible Shrinking Girl

P.S. If you are doing this hunt any other day than Monday, August 23, you will need to look for Monday’s post to find your letters!

P.P.S. This is an undertaking of some coordination and precision with so many blogs in different time zones, etc. Having never attempted a blog scavenger hunt before it’s going to be interesting to see how it works.  Thanks in advance for your patience!

    Congrats on hitting most, if not all, of your goals!! I particularly like seeing someone have a goal that isn’t necessarily food/exercise/weight related. What I mean is, I’m glad you enjoyed the little things 🙂
