I’m really not sure if I should, you know, SAY something here? Or if that’s too tacky? I don’t want to be tooting my own horn but this would be a much improved kind of toot than the norm in my house. And if I don’t say anything at all, is that ungrateful? Because that is, for sure, not the case.
I don’t know if y’all remember in February when Blogher ran the writing contest, “Share your plans for living healthy in 2008 and win a trip to BlogHer 08”. I saw, I entered, and then plum forgot. Because I do that a lot. Forget things, that is. Plus I never win anything but it’s always worth a try, isn’t it?
Except this time was different. Someone picked my post. Some-ONES picked my post, I mean. And to them, I can not exclaim with enough SHIFT 1 SHIFT 1 SHIFT 1’s just how thankful I am. (!!!!!!!!!) So thank you. I am beside myself, both humbled and thrilled and in every way appreciating it. And also dancing in the living room. A lot.
Please go read the contest posts from everyone and get re-inspired to keep your goals this year.
And to those of you going to BlogHer… I will see you there!!
I’ll be joining y’all on planet earth again after this high wears off. Which should be, oh, July 22nd or so.
And love the 1-day diet idea!
See you at BlogHer!

I may not be able to attend (it’s HOW much!?!?!?) but there is a good irish bar/restaurant just off of Union Square where we can get drunk and gossip.
