I’m Going to Be in Oxygen Magazine!

(yes, this is a "Face in a Hole" situation.)


Okay now that I have your attention, I have a confession…

I’m not going to be in Oxygen…

…in the way that you think! hah!

Yes I AM going be in Oxygen! But NO! Not as a fitness model!!

Hahah, I’m so tricky.

I am VERY, VERY, very excited to announce that Oxygen magazine has chosen one of my recipes as their “Reader Recipe of the Month” for the month of August!!!!!!!

I usually can’t stand obnoxious use of exclamation points, but I think it was warranted here.

HOLY SMOKES, I am so excited!  I can’t tell you which recipe yet but I will DEFINITELY do another post when the issue hits new stands!  I will probably take pictures of myself with the magazine everywhere and make a sort of slideshow… no? hah.

In other, much, much, less exciting news, today I hit the gym for my first serious leg workout in a  while.  The last phase of LiveFit has you doing low weight, high reps.  Not so much fun. Today I got back down to business and squatted/lunged my little heart out.  Happy to have that jelly leg feeling back! Although I am generally not a fan of leg day.

ALSO, last night I found this delightful granola at my local grocery store!

I have seen a lot of bloggers talk about this granola and I figured I couldn’t get it here, but alas, it was right there at the grocery store I always go to! I wanted the chocolate flavour but unfortunately they didn’t have any so I settled on this “Apple Walnut Coconut Delight.”  All I have to say about that is, delight is RIGHT, my goodness. So good. SO GOOD.  The lovely people at Love Grown have also offered to send me some coupons!  I believe they send everyone coupons, all you have to do is send your address to love@lovegrownfoods.com!

Anyway, that’s all the excitement I can handle for one day!

Hope I didn’t disappoint too much with my little trick, hah!

      Oh my gosh I have almost eaten the entire bag already…no joke. I don’t think I can buy this on a regular basis!! haha

  2. WOOOHOOO! That’s so exciting Danielle!!! Way to go!! Can’t wait to see it:) And YES to slideshow!

  3. Omg that is amazing!!! Love the face in the hole haha. I am SO happy that you found love grown. Seriously, the best granola and the best company! They are so generous 😀

  4. So happy for you! Something tells me it won’t be long until your in Oxygen again 🙂

    How long does each LiveFit work out take you? I’m tempted to try but worried about my schedule!

      Oh my gosh GIllian, that is possibly the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me! haha!

      As for LiveFit, it depends on the phase. The first month is pretty quick because there is no cardio, so it’s under an hour for 4-5 days a week. But some weeks it is 2 hours a day, 6 days a week. You can always take longer than the 3 months to do it and fit it in as you can!

  5. I am so excited for you! You should totally do the slideshow. HAHA. Congrats again! You should be so PROUD of yourself…who knows, maybe next time you are in the magazine it will be as a fitness model. 😉

  6. Congrats, girl! That is amazing! You definitely need to have a photoshoot with the magazine when it comes out. I know I would!!! Where did you find the Granola??? I have been looking everywhee for it and also thought it wasn’t available in Canada!

    • Danielle says:

      I found the granola at The Superstore! I e-mailed Love Grown and they said it is carried at Loblows and Sobey’s– so I guess any stores associated with them should have it?

  7. Congratulations!!!!!!!! those exclamation points are totally warranted!! I still need to get my Reader Recipe of the Month framed! It feels so good to be in that magazine.. it’s just such a great publication.. I’d take any square inch I can get!!!

    • Danielle says:

      WHAT! The Get In Shape Girl did not just post on my blog!! I know I will also take any teeny space I can!! So excited! 🙂

  8. How exciting! You’ll have to let us know when your recipe will be in there.
