Skinny Tuesday Giveaway!

The response from last week's Skinny Tuesday post has been overwhelming! So many of you have emailed me or Facebook messaged me to tell me how much that post impacted you.

Let's start a community to get healthy, fit, and feel good in 2010!

As you can see on my sidebar, I've created a Skinny Tuesday button. Feel free to grab it and put it on your blog to keep yourself inspired and to inspire your readers!

I've been doing great this past week with my fitness and weight-loss goals. I am feeling really good since I gave up my old diet of highly processed foods. I am down another pound, which puts me at a total loss of 56 pounds total! That's six pounds since THIS post!

I have also cut out all high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). All of it! This includes soda made with HFCS (but still sometimes I have a soda made with natural sugar). What am I replacing soda with? Water and herbal tea. At first I didn't want to drink water or make tea, but now that I am used to it, I crave it. Can you imagine...craving water instead of soda? Believe it!


One of my big inspirations these past few weeks has been the book The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. I saw it in a bookstore and loved the things she said. She talks about eating well, and eating healthy in order to feel better and impact the planet in a beautiful, kind way.

She is vegan, and so the book has a vegan angle. But I think anyone who reads it (even non-vegetarians and non-vegans) will get something beautiful out of it. She talks about how your diet impacts your health and vitality, and how even a few small changes can really change your life.

I wish I could buy everyone a copy of this book. But I'm not Oprah. I've got my copy, and I am buying (yes, out of my own pocket) a copy for ONE LUCKY READER!

Yup, this week I'm doing my First Ever Give-Away!
