My Loot

I follow quite a few authors on Facebook and they all have contests when their latest books are close to being released. Usually I just have to post a comment on their website or something equally easy.  In the past year or less I have won 4 books and if you squint really hard you can see the little hamburger! The 4th book is in the mail, I won it last week and I am very excited to be getting a "pre-release" copy of a book by one of my favorite authors. I will blog about it after I read it.

The little silver hamburger charm is from "Running for Burgers". Author Julia London started a Facebook page separate from her author page for people interested in motivating each other to stay in shape, "Julia London's burger bar for readers who are fit and healthy and like to eat. You don't need to be a runner to earn your burger. All activities welcome!"

Every month she has an "I Kick Ass" contest so followers can post about their accomplishments for that month.  I won the hamburger charm for July for my little bit of motivation. I have been using my calendar and big fat red marker to keep track of when I do any kind of exercise;  walking, biking or the gym.  By visually tracking my progress I went from only working out 4 times in June to 15 times in yep, I KICK ASS and I get loot!
