Title Nine #T9FitFest – Colorado and beyond + giveaway

I was contacted by Title Nine recently to attend a media event ahead of the FitFest about to take place in the Front Range of Colorado for the next three weeks. RSVP for the #T9FitFest my friends – no matter your athletic range.

Denver area #T9FitFest is April 15-16

My first thought was to trash the email because I do not feel like a very worthy athlete right now. I have not been able to be active with the foot still slowly recovering and I have put on a lot of weight with this lengthy process and still breastfeeding. It would have been easy to been busy that night and let this opportunity pass.

Then I thought about it. I have known about Title Nine since it started while I was in junior high – I have known the company to be about empowerment and I would have been a fool not to attend because I felt put off by my physical state. Women of all kinds of shape and activity levels NEED good bras fitted for our bodies.  As I slowly get back to activity Thelma and Louise need to be caged.

My BRAVANGELIST, Cari, at the Cherry Creek store set me up in a fitting room, measured me, then picked out four bras for me to try on. The bras ranged from the work-to-workout variety, something that resembled a lobster bib on my short torso, a bra that I already own, and eventually the five-barbel beauty that I settled on – their Marvel Bra. The barbell-rating system has been a mainstay of Title Nine with 1 barbell being the least amount of support and 5 barbells standing for maximum control on their scale.

During my bounce test nothing moved as I hopped around on a bounce ball then moved side to side with a hula hoop. Ha! As if I would share those pictures at this time.

Here are the dates and times of the FitFest as it travels through Colorado. Contact your store location to RSVP for a time slot with your own bravangelist. This is a great opportunity as the events will have an expanded bra selection beyond the huge bra wall regularly at each location AND you will receive a professional bra fitting with encouraging women who support active communities in our area.

Now for the fun – Title Nine has been darling enough to extend the courtesy of a Fit Fest appointment to one of my readers that will include a bra for you to take home.  Winner will have 24 hours to respond to my notification email or I will have to choose someone else due to the time sensitivity of this event. Good luck!!!

Good Belly Happy Hour

Last week I was invited to a really special treat by the people of Good Belly.  I want to thank them and the other companies they worked with to bring the event together.  Good Belly is a probiotic supplement and are part of the Boulder community.  I have walked by the Rembrandt Yard gallery many times and seen their offices on the sunken first floor – it is hallmarked by empty Good Belly cartons lining the windows.  You cannot miss it.  Good Belly was kind enough to invite a group of bloggers to attend a casual affair with food at Shine and introductions of the crowd then some information on the company.  They know a lot of us live in the area and wanted to take our conversations away from the internet.  It was a night of basic community building.

Learning fun tidbits about Good Belly and our gut bacteria content. Yay beneficial bacteria!

Not only were the bloggers amassed impressive but so was the Good Belly staff.  There were laughs and a lot of networking with like-minded people wanting wellness and information to reach our audiences. We munched on yummy snacks and enjoyed one another’s company.

At the end of the night Good Belly sent us home with some goodies they provided as well as other local companies that complement each other in the marketplace.

I am missing the Gaiam TV product – yep, they are nearby as well and brought some super awesome people to play.

Now you all know I can’t eat a lot of this because of my sugar cane allergy, this included the Good Belly product pictured here… but Good Belly does have an unsweetened shots version of their product I can have.  My family recently pumped up our probiotic intake in addition to our raw milk with Good Belly prior to our vacation in the PNW last month.  I wanted to be extra sure we didn’t get sick.

I sent my husband off to work with the granola and cereals pictured above.  However he has to eat those soon because due to some news he got recently he has to go on a very restricted diet for a while.  I’ll talk more about that in another post in the near future.  For now enjoy Boogs.  I love Celestial Seasonings and enjoy their cafeteria at least once a month.  I have some myChelle products and am still deciding how much I like them for me.  mmLocal – enough said, canned goods.  I LOVE LARABAR – readers of my blog know this.  We are a big Justin’s Nut Butter house – the individual packets are a go-to travel joy for my son (we do grind our own at the store for other use).  I am also a fangirl of Gaiam (and have also chowed at their cafeteria too) – see their site for a free 10-day trial for Gaiam TV. My husband loves Cascadian Farm cereals and bars.  The Earth Balance coconut and peanut butter spread will be new to me.  The bulumu granola new to my husband.

My husband and I chose this area for many reasons including food access to fresh, whole foods and what our local companies have to offer us.  We are lucky that we had this choice.

If you are curious about probiotics and Good Belly you can take part of their 12-day challenge where they will send you coupons for product.  They know that many people will experience an improvement in digestive and overall health in this trial period.  If you are curious then sign up for the challenge – you can’t lose in this situation.
