Anybody Want Some Free Stuff?

Since I didn't have to go to my office job for the past four days, I spent a little time clearing out my closets and DVD collection this weekend.  I found some things that I'd love to pass on for someone else to enjoy.  Yeah, I didn't call this a give-away since it's nothing fancy, but if you find something you can use, it's yours.  We'll call it something of a Blog Freecycle program.  :)

So here's how it will work.  If you see something you like, just write a quick comment naming the item so you can stake your "claim" and then drop me an email with your mailing address.  If you are the first commentor for that item, it's yours.  I will mail all claimed items next week via media mail on my dime.  They are small items so there will be no residency restriction.  I only ask that you be a follower, making it easier for me to contact you if need be and limit yourself to just one item for now.  In a few days, if there are still items left, I'll open them up for seconds.  As items are claimed, I will strike them out in this post.

Now here's what I have:
Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential - both my husband and I read this.  I really enjoyed this book.  Lots of references to sex, drugs and rock and roll type stuff though (contains quite a bit of the F-bomb).  Just a warning.  :)  If you've seen his show, this book reads exactly like he speaks.  I loved that you could just hear his voice through the pages.

Biggest Loser Cardio Max DVD - great beginner cardio DVD.  This has been previewed by me.

Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga - fun beginner yoga DVD.  I have viewed and tried this once.

Biggest Loser Power Sculpt - good resistance DVD for beginners.  Requires light dumbells for max results.  I used this a few times.

Biggest Loser Last Chance Workout - A step up from cardio max.  Gets you sweating pretty good.  I used this a few times.

Biggest Loser Boot Camp - A 6 to 8 week program progressing from Level 1 to Level 3.  Seems like a pretty good DVD.  I have not tried this one, but it is opened.

Jari Love's Get Extremely Ripped 1000 - I did this video once.  If you like step aerobics, this may be the one for you.  I just couldn't get past the dated and dark clothing and didn't really care for Jari.  But, someone else may love it.  It has a ton of great reviews on Amazon.

That will do it.  Hope to help someone get started on a fit and healthy 2011!
