Happy Thursday Blogworld!
I have some exciting news for both you and me! I’ll go first. Yesterday, sitting over coffee with a new friend who has tackled so many aspirations, I realized that I truly need to put myself out there more. You see, I hold back professionally. I self-deprecate and think myself less than many others who manipulate words and photos more easily, more fluidly, more beautifully. Does this sound familiar to any of you? Part of being an adult, I believe, is knowing when to continue chasing after a dream and when to give it up in favor of a more realistic goal. One of those dreams for me is being featured in some of my favorite national health magazines. While it’s not in print, and it’s not the shiniest introduction to a magazine – I am so proud to say that Mind Over Booty is nominated for Fitness Magazine’s Fitterati Blog Awards for Best Healthy Living Blog! You can vote by clicking here. I’d certainly appreciate your support.
Speaking of support…to show you I care too, I’m giving away not one, but 16 LARABARS!
Recently, Larabar sent me samples of some of the newer varieties, and I have to say: cappuccino is where it’s at! The rich flavor and healthy fats cure my nagging sweet tooth most afternoons. I highly recommend this flavor – especially chilled in the fridge – it becomes a doughy coffee chunk of yumminess, all with a recognizable and short ingredient list (my biggest snack qualifiers).
To enter this awesome giveaway leave a comment about your ultimate career dream. For an extra entry, tweet or facebook the following: “Enter to win 16 Larabars http://bit.ly/GERjA9 from @MindOverBooty in celebration of her @FitnessMagazine nomination!” After you tweet or facebook, be sure to leave a comment letting me know.
The contest will close at 5pm on March 25, 2012. Happy snacking!
