So, being that my blog is tiny, and I literally have no idea what I am doing when it comes to giveaways, you will be glad to know that I used a super, scientific method for picking the winner of the Practical Paleo giveaway. You’re excited, right? What…only if you are the winner? Well, keep reading to see if it’s you!
I knew I didn’t just want to randomly pick a winner, but I wasn’t sure how to go about picking one. So many of the responses really got me. My daughter was hanging with me (yep, she does that on occasion) one night, and she suggested that I let her read all the comments and pick the one she liked best. Obviously, having nothing better up my sleeve, I said sure. So, today she went back through them all and one totally stood out to her. She said, “Mom, this one reminds me so much of you! It has to be her.” and you know what, she was right. I am used to putting all of my energy into my kids, never really stopping to do much of anything for myself but when I found Paleo (and then CrossFit), I started to really believe that I was worth it. So, now I take time for myself. I am actually a little selfish with my CrossFit time. I refuse to schedule much else that interferes. School is getting ready to start, and that will mean after school practices and such, so we will see how selfish I remain but I have good intentions. Is that good?
Ok, enough rambling. The winner is…..Elizabeth! Here is her reason for wanting this book:
I am a new mom to a baby girl, overweight, and on verge of type 2 diabetes if I don’t change my ways. My sister just introduced me to Paleo/primal eating this week and I really want to try it and finally feel good about myself after putting so much energy into my daughter. I would love a copy of this book bc it would help me find my way to a new lifestyle!
Well, Elizabeth, I hope that this book helps you on your journey! Truly, it is the BEST thing I have ever done for myself. And you ARE terribly important. Making you better, will in turn, make your new daughter better! It’s a win, win!
Thank you for all that took the time to comment. It was tough, and I can say with all certainty that I would not have been able to make a decision. Thank goodness for daughters!
Elizabeth: send me your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get this out to you pronto! Congratulations!
