Mindless Eating seminar
I’m a fan of Brian Wansink’s book, Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think, which explains some of the reasons we overeat. I also think it’s funny that he plays pranks on people with never-ending soup bowls in the name of science as the Director of the Cornell Food and Brand Lab. Wansink is giving an online seminar on Thursday, January 29 from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm PST which is 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EST titled “How to Get A Grip on Mindless Eating.” It’s hosted by The Knowledge-Economy and tickets are $15, but you can win one of two free passes if you comment on this entry by 11:59 pm on Monday, January 26th. Please only enter if you’ll be able to watch the seminar. I don’t want the passes to go to waste.
You can still sponsor my “Bop to the Top”
At 12:59pm today I’m scheduled to start my bop to the top of the 37 story One America building downtown. There is still time to sponsor me and the Riley Children’s Foundation (even after the race) by visiting my fundraising page. If you donate, I will link to you in my entry about the race next week. Thank you sooooooo much to everyone who has donated! We’ve raised over $1000 for sick kids in Indiana – in just 3 days! You guys rock my socks off. Now I need to go put them back on so I can do the climb in about 2 hours.
Donate blood and win a trip in Manic Mommy’s contest
If you can’t afford to donate money to charity this year, hopefully you can at least afford to donate blood. Give something you made yourself! :) Manic Mommy is holding her annual blood drive again this year and this time one grand prize winner will receive luxury accommodations for six days, five nights at Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort. Get more details on her site.
Yoplait yogurt coupon
The folks at Yoplait sent me a link to a coupon so you can try their two new yogurt flavors, Cinnamon Roll and Cherry Cobbler. I will admit, the Yoplait yogurts are delicious, but I’ve stopped eating them because they contain high fructose corn syrup. However, if you buy them, please enjoy the coupon! I don’t doubt that they taste good.
