Skinny Wednesday and a Giveaway

Happy Skinny Wednesday! You’re half way there, friends! Today you have got some homework ahead of you… your reward will be a slimmer day, info for me, and a giveaway for you!

I still have no idea what the purpose of Twitter is... even though you can follow me on it. 😉

Today’s post is kind of random-filled and all over the place, so bare with me. There is quite a bit on the agenda today but here goes…

Skinny Wednesday’s Homework for slimming down your day

Below are a list of some emotional values. Write these down on little sticky notes so that you can manipulate them. Start out by placing them in their order of importance to you. (You may have to adjust several times.)

You could do this alone or have your significant other or family member/friend do this too. You may learn things about yourself and each other that you may not have realized… and this may be a source for discussion and realization (especially with any conflicts if your values are not aligned in particular ways).

approval
acceptance
love
making a difference
recognition
contribution
health
passion
success
achievement
growth
love
security
intelligence
happiness
adventure

Having your emotional values order of importance can be used/questioned in a few different ways…

  • Are you currently following these emotional values?
  • Ask yourself how easily you are allowing yourself to achieve these high priority values (are you setting some of your life goals so high you cannot reach the “growth” value? Or if “approval” is high on your list, are you allowing yourself to truly approve who you are?)
  • What can you do to aligning your life to work with these values?
  • What can your highest priority emotional values help you reach your ultimate life?
  • Some personal questions just to think about. 🙂

Next on your homework list: “A Blogger Near You…”

I need your info! I’m starting a new “page” with a list of bloggers (health, fitness, food, whatever) who would like to be listed with their place of residence. I’m not sure if I’ll just do states, regions of states, or actual cities, or all info.

The reason for creating this is just for fun but personally, I would love a place to look for a blogger around me (Northern California)… or if, say, I wanted to visit the Pure2Raw twins in North Carolina, Katie in Arizona, or Lindsay and Christin in Texas, I’d know where to find them (for saying hi, not stalking).

If you want to participate in this “A Blogger Near You” page, send me your stats via email or comment! Name, blog url, and city/state.

And lastly, your last homework assignment for today

Entering a giveaway!

Remember all the mentions of Organics Are For Everyone Date Syrup? You know, the filling for cinnamon roll cereal, the drizzle on the almost raw goji-apple cheesecake and chocolate zucchini socca?

Organics Are For Everyone was amazing enough to reward one lucky reader a jar of their very own Date Syrup! Here are the rules:

  2. Write a comment on their Facebook page saying you would like to win What Runs Lori’s giveaway. (1 entry)
  3. Leave me a comment for each of these things you do. (1 entry)

That’s it! Giveaway ends next Wednesday, March 30th (boyfriend’s birthday!) at midnight (PST). Winner will be announced next Thursday. 😉

Good luck!
