New Year, New Gear March Reveal

New Year, New Gear, hosted by Nicole at Apples and Arteries is the first exchange I’ve participated in and it was so much fun! I had fun shopping for the blogger I was paired up with and I had fun opening the package my partner sent me.

Nicole started this exchange at the beginning of the year because after participating in some other exchanges in 2012 she had fun (a key word with exchanges) meeting fellow bloggers and readers. She decided to host her first exchange at the beginning of the year because this is the time of the year when we set new fitness and health goals, and who doesn’t love new stuff to help reach those goals? This healthy chick certainly does and it appears many other healthy chicks do because Nicole has continued to host New Year, New Gear for the past couple of months.

When I found out that I would be exchanging with Nicole, she sent me some info. The info included the workouts she does, the new gear she needs and size. With that list I went shopping.

One bag is for me and the other is for Nicole. To see what I got her, you’ll have to visit her blog.

I also had to provide Nicole with the same information about my workouts, needs and size.

Here’s the package I got in the mail. It was like my birthday!


I opened the package and found this great tank top for my workouts. I love the swirls of color.


There was also a headband (never have enough of those) and shoe laces (love pink).


And lastly, there was a little note (adorable dog) for me.


This was a great experience and I look forward to participating again. And I can’t wait to check out what the other bloggers have received in their exchanges.

If you are interested in participating in next month’s New Year, New Gear exchange please click here and you’ll get all the info. Just a quick note, the limit is $15.00, so it’s not all that expensive.

Have a fit day!
