I Just Blogged to Say I Love You (Vol 13 + giveaway)

There are only 2 things on the "I Just Blogged to Say I Love You" list today.  Two things that have absolutely nothing to do with each other.
(Or, maybe they have EVERYTHING to do with each other.)
chocolate bar and fitbit flex giveaway

1. We have the hands-down, best ever chocolate bar in the world: the Chuao Chocolatier Salted Chocolate Crunch Bar.  How can you resist buying a chocolate bar with bread on the package?  Answer: you can't.

chuao salted chocolate crunch bar ... best chocolate bar EVER.
{side note: I'd just like to point out the produce in my cart.} ;)

The chocolate is swirled with crunchy, salted, toasted panko breadcrumbs.  Try as I might, I cannot just break off a small section and save the rest for another day.  If I open one, it's gone.  You'll see.

fitbit flex ... giveaway
2. Which brings me to item #2...the Fitbit Flex.  When I was in Minnesota last month, two of my favorite blogging friends were raving about their Fitbits.  I hadn't even noticed that they were wearing them.  If you're not familiar with Fitbit Flex, it's a bracelet that tracks your steps taken, activity level...even quality of sleep!  You can play along with friends and cheer them on, too! (Read more here.)

fitbit flex colors
What I love most about my Fitbit is that that is gets me MOVING.  If I'm baking, I'll walk a few loops inside the house (this really confused Mr. E at first) between batches.  I get OUTSIDE more.  Even when I'm inside watching Ladies of London, I'll walk in front of the TV instead of sitting.  Yes, I look ridiculous, but I'm not on my heinie in front of the computer like I would be normally.  

So, I thought it might be fun to give away some chocolate AND a Fitbit this week.  Yay!
One person will win an 8-pack of Chuao Chocolatier Salted Chocolate Crunch Bars. Another will win a FitBit Flex in your choice of color. (US addresses only, please.)

To enter:
  • leave a comment on this post telling me which you'd like: chocolate or Fitbit.
  • want a chance for both? leave a separate comment telling me so. 
Entries accepted through 11:59pm CST, July 19th.  Winners are contacted via email, not posted on the blog, so make sure your entry links to or contains your email.  Good luck!

  11. The chocolate! I love my FitBit!

    ReplyDelete
  12. The fitbit looks cool too. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I've debated getting a FitBit but initially didn't want to spend the money on a hyped-up gadget. However, I've found that with a new-ish (is 5 months still new?) baby, I need all the motivation I can get. I love purple, but I'd probably get the gray one so I could wear it every day and not have it clash and look funny at work.

    ReplyDelete
  14. And of course once I get my FitBit, I'll be able to see exactly how many steps it took me to burn off that amazing chocolate bar. OMG, that thing looks amazing! WANT WANT WANT

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm going fit bit. But I might go buy myself some of this chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
  16. A fitbit please! I gave one to my DH for his birthday and he loves it.
    I saw that chocolate at Whole Foods on Saturday so maybe it will end up in my basket next time!

    ReplyDelete
  17. The fitbit is on my birthday (August 4) list!

    ReplyDelete
  18. But chocolate is always a good birthday gift too!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'd love the fitbit......pretty please.....pick me!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Of course, I really love chocolate!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks for such a fun giveaway!! I'll cross my fingers for the fit bit. I could use some extra motivation these days.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Of course I'd love to win a fitbit!

    ReplyDelete
  23. And who wouldn't love to win those chocolate bars, too!

    ReplyDelete
  24. fitbit!! (the chocolate looks wonderful) thank you

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would absolutely LOVE a fitbit! Been thinking about getting one for quite awhile now.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Chocolate is always my first choice!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I really could use a fitbit, too, though.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Since I love chocolate so much I would love to win the fitbit. Just the motivation and accountability I need.

    ReplyDelete
  29. And I'd also love to win the chocolate!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would love a fitbit....thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The fitbit so I can see how many steps I need to take before I can eat the chocolate! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow, it's hard to choose...but I've been wanting to try the FitBit! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. The fitbit? Wow, that does all the figuring for you, but looks like an awesome bracelet! I love the color of the one you are wearing, that's my favorite color.

    ReplyDelete
  34. .... but my sweet tooth won't deny the chocolate either.... :]

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would love to give the fitbit a try!

    ReplyDelete
  36. But I wouldn't be upset if you sent the chocolate too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I loop my purse through the kiddo seat belt at the grocery store too! :) And my fitbit is driving my kids insane lol! They are tired of me making them walk everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've had my eye on a Fitbit forever! Thanks for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  39. And, would never miss a chance to win chocolate, EVER!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have actually been PRAYING that I would win one of Pioneer Woman's FitBits, so maybe this will be my answer to prayer!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would like to have both. I could eat the chocolate and then use the fitbit to chart my progress of burning it off!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I dearly love good chocolate, too, though, so wouldn't turn down this treat (but only if I win the FitBit as well; it's hard enough to maintain my weight at 52!).

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have never heard of this bar. Sounds different and fun. Thank you .

    ReplyDelete
  44. A fitbit would be awesome...I need to develop some habits like yours!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love my fitbit. Send me some chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
  46. And chocolate would be fabulous, too! It's all about balance!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'd like the fitbit. Carving out a block of time for working out just isn't happening, so I'd like to try incorporating it into daily life as you have done.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hmmmm, eat chocolate and then be inspired by fitbit. Or be inspired by fitbit and treat myself with chocolate, such a dilemma!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'd love to try out the fitbit. I'm a pretty active person, but I sleep terribly, so it'd be great to track that.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm going to try just one more time? Trying to post "Fitbit please" since I need fitness more than chocolate in my life at the moment!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'd love to win the chocolate. It sounds good

    ReplyDelete
  52. Such a tough choice but I am going with the fitbit

    ReplyDelete
  53. that's so not fair, I want both!! But since I've been putting on weight I guess I should get the fitbit!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Fitbit. Trying to get myself healthier and back in my pre-pregnancy clothes after having twin girls.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would love a FitBit! I have been hearing such rave reviews about them recently.

    ReplyDelete
  56. While the chocolate looks super delicious, the Fitbit would probably be better for me, and comes in some wonderful colors.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Although, given the option, I would love the Fitbit to walk a few extra steps so I could enjoy the chocolate bar. Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  58. ..but that chocolate looks delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Chocoholic here! I would love Chocolate...

    ReplyDelete
  73. I've been very interested in getting the Fitbit but had not been able to commit to it! Would love to win it!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Ummm..Im not going to lie, I wanted both! But I know I should be a good girl, as I am working on my weight loss and starting a 24 day cleanse Monday!! Lord help me..but the fitbit would be perfect to keep me in check! Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I mean don't get me wrong I would never turn down chocolate either!

  84. As much as I love chocolate, ESPECIALLY Chuao, I really need a Fitbit. I just haven't been able to get myself moving lately, and that might help!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I must go with the masses....FITBIT please...

    ReplyDelete
  86. How funny! chocolate is a want, exercise is a need, I WANT the chocolate :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. But chocolate is also good too....in moderation (like I know the meaning of the word, hence needing a fitbit...lol)

    ReplyDelete

  90. I want the fitbit flex, I have the old fitbit and love it, so I couldn't justify purchasing another one for myself, this way I can either give it to my husband and we can challenge each other, or my daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I want the chocolate too, because, um, chocolate and bread!
    I saw they also have chocolate and honeycomb. They sound delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  92. By the way, I love your watch and bracelet too!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I do love me some chocolate, but the Fitbit would be my choice, to work off my additional stores!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I'd love the Fitbit! (Of course, this is only my first comment on this post...) ;)

    ReplyDelete
  95. And also the FItbit to work off the chocolate!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I would love to have a Fitbit! It would really help my motivation!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'd love the chocolate - it sounds so intriguing! (Plus, you almost cannot go wrong with chocolate!)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Although chocolate would be a great reward after exercise!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I have been wanting a fitbit! My best friend was a complete fittie and always encouraged me to be in the best shape possible! Recently we were in a car accident and unfortunately she didn't make it. Long story short, I want to make her proud and get in shape for not only her, but myself. I think this would help! Thank you for the awesome opportunity!! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  109. fitbit please :) thanks for the chance!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  111. While the chocolate would be heavenly, the fitbit would be much more helpful and useful!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Fit Bit for sure!! Running after my 2 kids under 3 still isn't enough to move those excess pounds. I need motivation!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I'd love the chocolate for my bad girl days!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Both would be lovely, and confusing! But mainly lovely! Thx!

    ReplyDelete
  115. I'd love either one, especially the FitBit!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I would love to have a fitbit, pink!! I gave one to my daughter for Christmas last year and she loves it. She wears it all the time.

  118. Or Chuao Chocolatier Salted Chocolate Crunch Bars!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Chocolate sounds fabulous, but I'm choosing the Fitbit. I need help in the exercise department!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Fitbit! Did you read the David Sedaris essay about how he became obsessed with his fitbit? hilarious...

    ReplyDelete
  121. And also...I'd like both, please.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I've been wanting a fitbit for awhile now, so many good reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Chocolate of course! So I can use the Fitbit!

    ReplyDelete
  124. I'm not sure my first choice--the Fitbit--was published (I'm new to this!)

    ReplyDelete
  125. if not a fitbit and a push to exercise then enjoying chocolate would be awesome

    ReplyDelete
  126. Hi Bridget, it's so nice of you to give away chocolate and Fitbit! They sort of compliment each other in a way. Haha I love the idea of Fitbit because it encourage people to move or work out in the most fashionable way! I would love to win a Fitbit and I will work out like crazy so next time I when I win some chocolate I won't feel guilty! <3

    ReplyDelete
  127. I've been wanting to get a fitbit!!

    ReplyDelete
  128. I have wanted a fitbit for months now.....

    ReplyDelete
  129. .... And now I want chocolate! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  130. And that delicious looking chocolate!!

    ReplyDelete
  131. I'll be a good girl and say that I'd rather win the fitbit, they are pretty nifty :)

    ReplyDelete
  132. But who am I kidding, I would love some chocolate right now too! Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  133. The fitbit... I've been reading about it everywhere and it sounds pretty cool!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I'd love to have a fitbit. I've noticed that once I had a dedicated water bottle that I really liked that I drink a lot more water without thinking about it. I've wondered if a fitbit that tracks my movement would encourage me to move more to beat yesterday's number (not that I'm competitive or anything...)

    ReplyDelete
  135. As much as I love chocolate, my waistline is saying FitBit :)

    ReplyDelete
  136. Never heard of a FitBit. Very cool! Thanks Bridget!

    ReplyDelete
  137. ...and this will be my fitbit entry!

    ReplyDelete
  138. I would love the fitbit! Have been wanting one!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I have a Fitbit, but I would LOVE to win one for my 20-year-old son who is hauling HIS heiny out of bed to walk with me in the morning, trying to get fit himself! He is also the son who bought ME my Fitbit for my birthday this year! I enjoy spending that time with him in the morning, and I know having a Fitbit would keep him motivated as it does me.

    ReplyDelete
  140. So the chocolate looks yummy, too! I'll keep watch for it in the market just in case I don't win it...

    thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  141. I'd love the fitbit! (I guess my first attempt at commenting didn't go through.) :)

    The Fitbit please!!!

    ReplyDelete
  149. I should probably say fitbit, but I am a mama of 8 months twins and sometimes (ok, most times) this mama just needs some delicious chocolate!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Ooooohhhh I want a fitbit!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  151. My first choice would be the FitBit (since I tend to find chocolate on my own too often).

    ReplyDelete
  152. The chocolate looks divine so I would definitely love that too!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Or you can wrap the fitbit around the chocolate bar and send it to me!

    ReplyDelete
  154. I would take the chocolate too.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I would choose the fit bit.

    ReplyDelete
  156. But chocolate is great too :)
