ok so, like three weeks ago (when i lived in a different state!) i said i had a giveaway coming soon. well i did, i just wasn't very organized. my bad. let's just get on with this already, shall we?
about a month ago i was contacted by a representative of the american cancer society to help spread the word about their new "choose you" campaign. i received a fun package in the mail from them full of goodies and have an extra prize pack to giveaway!
"choose you" is a new nationwide movement by the american cancer society to help encourage women to put their own health first in the fight against cancer. as a woman myself, i know i sometimes get caught up in ensuring others' needs are met - whether at work, at home, or with friends, and i'm not even a mother with kids to look after! (thank goodness, as they'd probably be eating a diet of m&m's...)
the "choose you" campaign asks women to pledge to reach an individual health-related goal from one of five categories: eat right, get active, get health screenings, protect your skin and/or quit smoking. as the avid runners/workout addicts we are, we probably have 2 of those 5 down already (being active, not smoking). most of you probably have your eating in check, but we all know that i could use quite a bit of improvement. i'm sure most of us could improve our sunscreen use, except jill because she bathes in it. :)
giveaway details: the winner will receive one "get healthy" gift bag of goodies (including a stainless steel water bottle, t-shirt that's totally work appropriate in my book, neutrogena sunscreen, gift card to walgreens and more)
to enter: share what healthy habit you want/need to kickstart right now and what thing(s) are holding you back from declaring victory (and get on it already!). you could also share what motivates to you to stay on top of your personal health maintenance or how you make time to make your health a priority.
for a bonus entry: give me something funny to say in my maid of honor speech this weekend!! (pllllease!) :o)
to my canadian and overseas friends - sorry but this giveaway is restricted to us residents only. i hope you will still take a minute to comment though!
this prize pack will be mailed out in a timely manner because i will not be the one mailing it (it will come directly from the acs)! you can rest assured future winner.
disclaimer: all the information about "choose you" was provided to me by the american cancer society, but my opinion on the program is solely my own. the acs also provided the gift packages for myself and my giveaway winner.
