"GUNS AROUND THE WORLD" with I See Fit People

OK. This is the deal. January 4th will be the 2nd Anniversary of I See Fit People. Let's just say we are giddy with excitement.

Now...for those of you who have been around for a while, well, you know we have just a little, shall we say, fixation on the guns. Yep...arms are big with us. Some of our fave words: muscle, flex, gun show, pipes, biceps, tickets, Tony Horton, tricep get our drift. celebrate AND have you all join in with us, we are having a photo shoot, called, "Guns Around The World". Pay attention..this is going to be AWESOME!

Now, sure we like pics of individual guns, but for this festive occasion, we thought we would up the ante just a bit. We want you to get as many people as you can into your Gun Show picture. The more creative it is, the better. Get your office staff to join in, your gym mates, a bus load of people on your way downtown. We don't care...just get LOTS and LOTS of guns in your pic!!

To make this just a bit better, we have made a sign that you can print off, and you can fill in your city, town & country (PLEASE USE A BLACK MARKER so we can read it). The deal breaker is this: You need to be holding this sign up in the pic to qualify.

Here is the sign. Save it to your computer and print it off. You can enlarge it as well, if necessary, before printing!


So we are giving you a few days to think about plan your attack.

There will be a prize sent out to the person who rustles the MOST guns up for their photo op.

The "GUNS AROUND THE WORLD" pics will be posted on January 4th only!! So you can plan, scheme, and snap pics now, but no posting of the pics til then. We want to see our wall PLASTERED with guns...from far and wide...Nova Scotia to Paris (yes I know you people exist). EVERYONE can join in on this...LOCK & Load, baby!!!!

We are back at it again...(finally) with a really AWESOME contest! As you know, we (M & W) have a goal...we are almost there and we might make it anyway, but we are aiming for 5000 fans by December 31, 2011. So to give us a little edge, we thought we would host another refer a friend contest. This was a natural to tie in with our 2 year Anniversary of I See Fit People!!

We usually let these things take care of themselves, but we both are rather determined and REALLY, REALLY are excited to try and reach this number. Consider it one of our personal goals! We want to try to encourage and motivate as many people as we can in 2012!

Yep..the rules are pretty simple. The person who has brings the most new people to the I See Fit People Facebook page will be the winner of Ultimate Dip Station!

So basically if you share our Facebook page on your wall, and someone joins because of you, you get an entry. HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: All you have to do is make sure they come over to our I See Fit People Facebook page and say they were referred by you. Easy Peasy!! If they don't tell us, you don't get credit. Of course you want credit for this one!!

We will track the referrals, and the winner will be announced on our 2 year Anniversary: January 4th!! WOOHOOO!! We are SO excited about this. We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to Ultimate Body Press for so generously donating this prize!! Someone is going to be a VERY lucky winner!!

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x8 square baking dish.

2. Combine the black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, sugar, and instant coffee in a blender; blend until smooth; pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the mixture.

Chocolate Lava Protein Brownie

1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I used Whey Gourmet Naturelle)
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon sugar free chocolate Jello pudding powder
1/4 cup water

Mix all dry ingredients together in small bowl. Add water. Mix till smooth. Microwave for 30 second (NO more than that).

Drop in a teaspoon of Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, any nut butter. I make the vanilla & Cookies & Cream version of these too. Try any flavor! Use a deeper type bowl, not shallow. You will just get a hard lump, not a soft on the edges, oozy in the middle effect, which is what you want!
