It is –8 right now. Don’t be jealous. I am going to run in my green bikini.
Some of you missed my entrance back into running yesterday in all its whining, so, click HERE.
If you are really cool and a long time follower of this blog, you may remember a Healthy Lifestyle Giveaway I did in May sponsored by the American Cancer Society. And, now I’m hosting another.
According to the ACS, “About half of all cancer deaths could be prevented if people maintained a healthy weight through diet and regular exercise, avoided tobacco products, and got recommended cancer screening tests.”
If you knew you could cut your risks by 50 percent, shouldn’t you go for it? You are all saints, but is there anything you could do better? Is there anyone you could encourage to lead a healthier lifestyle (besides me)?
The American Cancer Society’s Choose You program helps women put their health first and stick to their health commitments by offering social support and financial incentives that have been proven to create long-term behavior change. Log onto www.ChooseYou.com and sign up to make a commitment. As an extra incentive, women who make a new Choose You Commitment before January 31 will be eligible to enter the ‘New Year, Choose You!’ sweepstakes for a chance to win health-related prizes, such as a trip to LA to meet with a personal trainer, spa gift certificates and more.
Yes I might make a change if there was a financial incentive. I’m just that shallow.
Want to win a healthy living prize pack? It includes a workout kit (with pedometer and calorie counter, resistance band and jump rope), a Choose You t-shirt and flower pin. Estimated value of the pack is $30.00.
All the goodies:
Pin and digital pedometer. Sorry, Kovas, it’s not a belly button pin:
Neat little bag for all your candy and cigarettes (whoa, just kidding!)
Me pretending to try on the shirt, because what’s a giveaway without a picture of me and a lampshade covering my crotch?:
Everything in a heap:
