Sorry I didn’t post last night, I ended up getting home late and I’m trying to really honor bedtime so I’m ready to go back to school. Yesterday evening I went up to Manhattan to attend the Always Infinity Blogger Meet-Up. It was sponsored by Always (to promote their new product line, Infinity) and Doctor Rebbecca Booth (to promote her new book, The Venus Week).
The event involved cocktails, hors d’ouevres , and complimentary spa treatments. Plus we heard from Dr. Booth and members of the Always team, and even got a swag bag!
The food was pretty good, Plate 1,
Plus I had a glass of champagne. And a mini chair massage that knocked my socks off! I got to see Dori and Missy again, which was fun, and my coworker had a great time. She got a fabulous looking French manicure.
Dr. Booth’s talk basically came down to discussing the ways women can look and feel their best. You can get more info here, so I’ll just list some of the take-away points.
- avoid “white” food
- eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
- eat plenty of nuts
- if you are going to eat chocolate, make it dark chocolate
- supplements are our friends
- exercise, exercise, exercise
The swag bag was loaded with products that tied in with Dr. Booth’s suggestions.
I am going to start taking the fish oil supplements with dinner (and you know I’ll eat that candy!), but there is now a giveway at the bottom of this post!
After the event A met up with me (he took the train into the city with me and walked around) and we walked around Columbus Circle for a bit. Then we hurried home to make it to a 10:10 showing of “Observe and Report.” I was pretty excited to crack into my Easter candy,
my mommy got me Soda Pop Jelly Bellys, holy yum! I packed 1serving of beans along with a Strawberry Rice Krispies treat.
And A and I split a large diet coke at the movie. The movie, by the way, was awful. I am really a huge Seth Rogan fan, and the individual actors technically acted well, but the movie was choppy and not very funny. Plus the flasher scenes gave A nightmares! I usually reward a movie for gratuitous nudity but this was just not cool!
I didn’t actually eat very much yesterday, so this morning’s breakfast was healthy and scrumptious – Carmel Apple Oats!
This was 1/3C oats cooked with a small banana. I topped the oats with a splash of skim milk, a crumbled caramel apple bar and a heaping spoonful of Stonewall Kitchen Caramel Apple Butter.
Yum, yum, yum!
I have another busy day, so I’m going to tell you about the contest and be on my way.
EatingChalk’s first contest!
As you guys know, I got some exciting swag from the Always Infinity event. I had a great time and I appreciated the way the freebies tied into Dr. Booth’s advice, but the books are just not for me. [My friends and I don’t ever plan on sitting and discussing our cycles and though the cookbook has some yummy looking recipes many involve fake sugar which I just won’t do – diet coke doesn’t count :)]
- leave a comment on this post telling me why you use (or why you don’t use) fake sugars – Splenda, Equal, etc.
- link back to this contest from your blog OR cc me in an e-mail in which you tell three friends about EatingChalk
