Happy 100 to Me!


This is my 100th post. 🙂

I’m so, so, SO grateful for all the support and love I’ve received from all of you. When I started this healthy change in December, I never would have thought that I would hear from so many who identified with what I have to say…and I continue to be profoundly touched by all your words of encouragement, whether they are comments here…on my Facebook fan page…or via private message.

I wish I had a million dollars to give away as a 100th post reader appreciation prize…but, sadly, I don’t. I do, however, have a pretty cool “toy” to raffle off today:

The S2H Step pedometer.


If you haven’t heard of this before, it’s a pretty fun idea: wear the pedometer every day and it tracks your steps. The pedometer will give you a 12 digit/letter combination code for every 10,000 steps you take. Go to their website and redeem the code for 60 points. Save up points for rewards like gift cards…discounts off spa weekends…sports equipment…workout gear, you name it. Now, I think it’s important to note that the rewards offered change consistently. You can look at the rewards one day and be really UNDERwhelmed and the next day…OMG! When I first got my S2H, a Nintendo Wii was available as a reward. So wear your pedometer and save up your points. You never know what’s going to pop up!

For the gentlemen who read my blog, I must apologize. This particular S2H Step pedometer is pink. If you like pink, more power to ya! But if you don’t…please stay tuned. I plan on having many more raffles to show my appreciation!

In order to use the S2H Step, you do need to register for a FREE account with them. I’m not being compensated by S2H in any way for doing this…and I bought this pedometer with my own money as a gift from me to one lucky reader. Please check the S2H website for more information before you register for the drawing.

All you have to do to register for the raffle is post a comment here on my 100th anniversary post. That’s all. 🙂 I will draw the winner (using random.org) on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 6 pm central time. The winner will be announced here sometime that night.

I am cooking up many more thank you’s for y’all…including my first YouTube video…and, of course…some raffles for Hot Mess Princess t-shirts and water bottles. I need more hours in the day to get all these things done! When I say that my number one priority must always be watching over my food & exercise, I know you get me.

I appreciate your patience and encouragement so very much. Every single of one you is a part of my silver lining.

So, so grateful,
