550,000 Pageview Giveaway!

I realized earlier in the week that I clocked another 50,000 pageviews since my half million giveaway post at the end of April, so its time for another giveaway to thank everyone who takes time out of their day to see what’s happening at My Bizzy Kitchen. πŸ˜€

I have Shelley to thank for my new hat that I wear every day during lunch, whether I am walking, biking or running – it fits well and covers my face from the sun and even in windy conditions stays put.Β Β 

Under Armour hat – I couldn’t find the exact one she gave me, but this one is close:

Then because its summer, and Shelley and I are swimming fools, I thought I would throw in a pair of Speedo Water Thongs – perfect for grabbing the mail or to wear around a pool:

And last, but not least – a cool short sleeve shirt with rashgaurd – not exactly sure that that is, but I like the fit – and it comes in either pink or blue.

And thanks again for everyone leaving comments, emailing me on the side – I am so lucky to have so many friends! πŸ˜€Β  To enter the giveaway, simply leave me aΒ comment telling me what your favorite exercise gear is.Β  Second entry (and second comment) if you tweet about it.Β  I’ve only sent one tweet in my whole life, and that was to helpΒ my friend Heather become a FitAmbassador for Cleveland.Β  One day I’ll latch on to all this social media – I only go on facebook once a week too!

I’ll pick a winner on Monday, June 27.Β  Good luck! πŸ˜€

Now onto the eats!

At the Japanese grocery store, I picked up some black sesame seed bread – its really good – I ended up with an 0pen face sammie with a sliced pear for breakfast – I had a couple slices of deli turkey under the egg and cheese, and I think it was spoiled because I felt like shizz for a couple hours after I ate it.Β  It tasted good going down though!Β  Breakfast comes in at 8 PointsPlus.

I had to do a bank deposit for work, so walked to and from the bank for a nice 45 minute walk – after I work out twice a day like I did on Wednesday, its hard to do too much the next day.

Lunch was super delicious – think chili mac, only with leftover sloppy Joe’s!Β  I had 1/2 a cup of sloppy joes over yaki soba noodles with baby spinach and a sprinkling of cheese – this delicious bowl was 10 points and quite filling. πŸ˜€Β  The soba noodles were from the Japanese grocery store too – each of the three 5.5 ounce cooked packages are only 4 Points – simple steep them in hot water for a couple minutes.

And I had pork chops on the menu but forgot to defrost them – so it was on to Plan B – chicken taquitos!Β  3 taquitosΒ were 11 mouthwateringΒ PointsPlus.

  • 3 corn tortillas (3 pts.)
  • 3 ounces chicken (3 pts.)
  • 3 tablespoons fat free refried beans (1 pt.)
  • 3/4 ounce cheddar cheese (2 pts.)
  • 1 tsp. oil for frying (1 pt.)
  • 1.5 tablespoons light sour cream (1 pt.)
  • chopped baby spinach and jalapeno (0 pt.)
  • 1 tablespoon salsa (0 pt.)

Deep fried for just a couple minutes – I’ve said it before, but our deep fryer holds the temp so well, I only count 1 tsp. of oil for the deep frying – but these are not greasy at all.

Yep, not gonna lie these are delicious – and I probably could have stopped at two, but why? πŸ˜€

the green toothpicks represent chopped jalapenos on the inside - didn't want to accidentally give one of these to Tony!

Yep, one more picture – I couldn’t decide which one ot post, so I posted all three πŸ˜€

So happy it’s Friday!Β  Stats for Thursday:

  • 29 Points
  • 45 minute walk
  • average blood sugar 131

Make it a great day!

  7. My favorite exercise gear is pants from Beyond Yoga. Check out the website. They are so comfortable and fit perfectly!

  8. Though I like to “run naked” i honestly think I love my garmin. Mostly because I’m too lazy to figure out how many miles a route it before I run it. So if I knw I am supposed to run 5 miles, I just let the garmin do all the work. LOL! What a great giveaway! πŸ™‚

  9. My favorite exercise gear is my worn out sweat pants. They are completely broke in, soft and comfy. I put them on as soon as I get home from work, even if I’m not going to work out. I will miss them when they fall apart and need to be replaced.

  10. Love the giveaway! Good eats!

  11. RIght now, my favorite workout gear is my pair of running shoes, because they are the only thing I own that aren’t old and needing to be replaced! I got checked out at a running store and had shoes selected that were perfect for me, and I love them. Now I just need to save enough money to get new running shorts, a shirt, non-cotton socks, a hydration belt…the list goes on and on!

  12. And I Tweeted it – but I don’t really know how to use Twitter either!

  13. Congrats to you!!!

    those taquitos look wonderful. You know, I have never had a taquito. I’ve had lots of Mexican though, and like just about everything, so I am certain I would like these WITH the jalapenos, of course…and I might through some onion in the mix too…hehe

    have a good weekend, Biz!

  14. Biz, you won MY giveaway!!! I need your email address as well as your mailing address please πŸ™‚

    My favorite is my Fitbit and soon I hope it is my Polar πŸ™‚

  15. A year ago I joined a kickboxing class at age 50 with much younger friends from the gym.
    One year later I love it. The most empowering experience of my life so I would have to say my
    favorite workout gear is my boxing gloves. They changed my life.

  16. My favorite gear is my running shoes! They’re essential, and I don’t really need anything else. Congrats on all the views. Your tacquitos look awesome!

  17. Favorite exercise has to be my i-pod. I crank up the music, pretend I am a rock and roll star and forget that I am exercising!

  18. Just got the Samsung EPIC 4G phone and downloaded a C25k program and Slacker radio so I guess that’s my new favorite workout gear.

  19. Those taquitos looks fantastic! So tasty. πŸ™‚
    My favorite exercise gear is my blue tank top – always makes me feel good! πŸ™‚

  20. So funny, I noticed the green toothpicks right away and thought “wow, Biz is getting fancy” – but the jalapeno markings make more sense (and I’m sure are appreciated by Tony!).

    So happy you are enjoying the hat – I bet it really brings out your blue eyes, too!

    What a great giveaway – I’ll play along, but don’t enter me since I kinda already have a lot of hats and visors (who me???). Love the flip flops, though! Anyway, my favorite exercise gear are my running shoes. Sad face. Since they are collecting dust, I’ll give you my second favorite thing – my Zoomers swim fins. These things are fun!

  21. Definetly my hat. My hair is at such an inbetween length that a ponytail won’t hold my hair up. I need the hat to keep my curls out of my face.

  22. Congrats on all the pageviews! You have a fabulous blog, so it’s no surprise. My favorite workout gear? My heart rate monitor would certainly rank up there.

  23. Congrats on the pageviews!!!

    My favorite workout gear is my Garmin. I love that it will calculate my distance no matter what I do. Even if I run around in circles! Oh, and a running skirt that I got on clearance! πŸ˜€
