GIVEAWAY!

Got my sane fitness preggers kits yesterday in the mail! They look great! I'm sharing the goodness with this random 'just because' giveaway!  If you are preggers, know anyone who is or planning on being one day... this could be for you!
Or, If multiplying isn't your cup of tea, you could choose the sane fitness Quick Start kit instead. I know I'm in serious need of some exercise and I'm sure I'm not alone. So... enter! Leave me a comment (not anonymously pls) before Sunday 12:00am and I will let you know on Monday who the winner is:)

Yay! You're so sweet! I'm not sure which kit would be more useful for me because I will probably become pregnant in the next year or so but it seems kind of like putting the cart before the horse to start collecting pregnancy gear. I'll just enter and I guess if I win the prize can be a surprise!

This is wonderful! I love your illustrations!

This kit is exactly what I need, because I find it hard to exercise properly, just because I don't know how and don't want to hurt my baby! So I always end up just training my arms. And soon, I won't be able to jog anymore. I truly believe that training during pregnancy helps to reduce fatigue and other "side effects". It helps with post-partum also. And it's easy to put on some weight during pregnancy, because you have a good excuse to! But the more you put on, the harder it is to lose it after.

Where can I buy this kit?

Thank you so much and keep on the good work, I love your blog!

Yay for fun giveaways!! I just had a baby boy 8 months ago... but I still want to drop the baby weight! I need a good fitness plan! And I would love to have one that's so beautifully illustrated by yourself! We probably won't have another one for a few years, but you never know, I'm pretty spontaneous!! This looks like an awesome guide to have! **crosses fingers**

Idesperatly need that sane fitness quick start kit to help me get rid of my blubber. I'm one of those "skinny fats". I'm not too big but I know I'm still full of fat and not fit. I'm 40 and it's about time I'd start doing something about this, right. So phhhhlease. :D

Seems like something I really oughta have :) Having a baby girl of 8 months, I really don't have the time to plan my excercising, other than taking long walks.. She's extremely dependant on me these days so going to a gym is out of question.

And for what comes to being preggers - we're working on that, big time! Would love to get a sister or a brother to our tiny one, hopefully sooner than later :)

Anyhow, I've enjoyed your entries - I love your illustrations! So thanks for that and have a wonderful spring :)

How Cool! I love the designs! Maybe this would help me keep my exercising to a regular schedule! I am a big fan of your blog as I have been reading it for a bit now! It is on my daily list! :)

I would love to win! I love your blog and artwork. You are an inspiration and the Quick Start Kit sounds and looks like an inspiration. My little girl just turned 1 and I still need to lose some more baby weight. I read your blog everyday. Keep up the awesome work.

Anna said...

Oh! I could use a fitness boost for sure.

kyra said...

i'm not pregnant (yet) but with any luck, i will be sometime soon. i have been taking prenatal vitamins, and looking at maternity clothes, so it seems fitting that i should also start thinking about exercise too. and if that just seems crazy, well then i would love to get the starter pack. either way, i am totally excited for this giveaway!

Emily B. said...

Those are so nice! I am not pregnant and don't actually know anyone who is---but I would love the fitness quick start kit with your gorgeous illustrations. Thanks!

Chantel said...

Your illustrations are so inspiring, Helen. And it's very kind of you to organize a giveaway.

I'm not pregnant, but I would love the sane fitness Quick Start kit.

Love your work and if it could help me lose some baby weight, I would love it even more...

craftycathy said...

Your blog is really great and I am always inspired by your artwork. I'm currently pregnant and could really use a fitness push! Thank you for offering the kits.

Amano Crafts said...

mmmm I need to loose some extra pounds I'm still carrying from my pregnancy ;) so that sane fitness quick start kit sounds great.

ames said...

Ooh! One of my co-workers and a good friend is around 10 weeks, she'd love this!

Georgie Love said...

Hooray! I am about 14 weeks and needing to amp up my movement, but haven't been sure what is in the safe and beneficial category!

JSchwa said...

"If multiplying isn't your cup of tea"..Yep, that's me. Actually, years of horrendous "lady problems" have probably left me unable to multiply...although, I haven't tried. Too busy trying to make a living. However, my sister is totally having the first for our family (grandkid for the 'rents, me the auntie, etc) at the end of July. I keep buying her stuff...elephant stuff. She could totally use this. If I don't win, I'll probably just buy one for her. I know her body will drive her nuts after the baby (aka Lima Bean) enters this world...I would like to help calm her.

Tammy said...

That's a lovely thing to do. A friend of mine is currently 13 weeks preggers with twins. This is an excellent thing as it took years of trying and eventually a lot of medical intervention. It's fun to see how happy she is.

I, on the other hand am not preggers, but I have put on A LOT of weight in the last 6 months due to some new medication.

I'd probably have to get the preggers kit for my friend though.

I love your work. Thank you for sharing.

(I do live in Australia, so postage might be expensive)

I'm done popping out babies so the fitness quick start kit would be ideal. I was asked 4 times if I was pregnant - when I wasn't. I'm feeling better now that I've lost 10kgs but I hate exercise so any help would be great.

PS. If I win I'll pay the difference in postage to Australia. :)

bethany said...

I'm pregnant and could really use this!! Thanks so much!

est said...

oh this is so generous!! love yr colorful illustrations :)

Bunny B said...

Oh wow! They're both great kits! I have a preggy sis who I'd love to gift this to :) Thanks!

aspengirl said...

Wow! this would be great. While I have yet to boast a bump, seems my whole universe has a little one on the way these days. Would be lovely to give one of them this or just hoard it until I have one too!

klp said...

Ooooh! I have a sister-in-law currently 'with child'. But I could also use an exercise kick in the butt myself. These are so groovy, whoever wins will surely enjoy!

Sharon said...

I love your work ... and it it got me to exercise on a regular basis, or even think about it ... well, it'd be the stuuf of miracles

Jodi said...

Well - I could be in the near future....why not enter your draw!? If not I have co-workers who are pregnant now. Thanks for sharing, I really love your work! It's very motivating to see such a talented artist and and fellow blogger in Canada. Yay!!

Antonella said...

Well, I'd surely need a "fitness makeover"! I'm planning to become pregnant in a year (nowadays I'm busy building my life coaching practice -that should create flexible workhours when baby is due).
But...
n the meantime I should lose some kgs that would be hard on the body when summed with the love bundle!
Sooo, I actually don't know which of the 2 programs I'd choose. I'd be so glad to win either, so please count me in.
By the way, I love your artwork and thanks for the draw
