Great Mail Day!

It was a big day for me mail today. Amanda from Run to the Finish held an Earth Day giveaway and I WON! I never win anything so I was super excited to win this Baggu Bag.

It came all folded up very tiny this (and it is my FAVORITE color!)

It opens up to be a pretty good size bag.


It even came with a mesh produce bag.

I know I will use this a lot especially since I am at the grocery store/Target pretty much everyday. Thank you again Amanda for the great give-a-way!

AND THEN...

A few weeks ago Kristina from Stonyfield Farms contacted me and asked if I would be interested in trying their new greek yogurt. I said heck yeah and she sent me some coupons. I just received them in the mail today so I am going to run out and get some. I will post a review when I try it. I have to admit, am kind of scared....I am not a huge dairy person so anything out of the ordinary skeeves me out a bit. Yes, this is out of the box for me. We shall see....worst case, I feed it to the kids. They will eat anything.


They even sent me a reuable bag. Woo Hoo! I will put it go good use.

I love getting treats in the mail. It is better than bills!

Today's workout was good but lame in the grand scheme of things. I ran 2.2 miles. I don't know my pace and my time was about 22 minutes give or take.... I took 3 mini walk breaks but pushed my pace hard when I was running. I can sure feel the few lbs that I put on while I was slacking.

While I was getting my Jack Bauer fix this evening, I did arm weights and a bunch of stretching. I was scared when I a saw a photo of my arms!

It is before 10:30 PM and I am going to hit my goal of going to bed at a reasonable time tonight.

Something other than bills in the mail is always good. Working out while watching your fav programs is smart.

OMG, sister, if you had added "Then I'll PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE", I'd swear you were Teh Marcy!

As it is, you are a successful practitioner of her mothering style.

Congrats!

And congrats on the wins!

Cool stuff!

I'd love to buy some of the reusable bags, but between conferences and races, I have so many reusable bags that I don't know what to do with them all. LOL

Hey Carly,

My name is Rachit Dayal and I'm a hypnotherapist who specializes in weight management. I came across your blog Fatrunnergirl.blogspot.com, during research for JV partners and noticed that you had a great information on weight loss.

I was wondering, Do you do affiliate or joint venture promotions?

I've created a product called "Weight Loss In Your Sleep" - and I think it will be very complementary to your blog and readers. It's a set of hypnosis recordings that helps people lose weight & curb cravings and will help people to stay “motivated” after reading the information you give them.
The product retails for $19.95, has upsells for $49.95 and $99.95 and the affiliate commission is at 60% during the launch till May 31st 2009.

There's a complete affiliate center with details of your affiliate hoplink, sample blog articles, product reviews, email promotions, Signature Ads etc - You can access it here:
======> http://www.weightlossinyoursleep.com/affiliates/index.php?action=Blog%20Articles

The sales pitch currently has a conversion rate of about 1.8%, the accompanying website has a lot of engaging features like a hypnosis-readiness quiz, an explanation of the science behind hypnosis and a newsletter for constant contact and eventual sales.
If you'd be interested in reviewing or promoting this product, please email me back and I'll arrange for a copy to be ready for download/shipped. I can be reached at Support@WeightLossInYourSleep.com
I can also help you create any marketing material you need for your promotion - articles, pre-written reviews, banners, PPC tools and whatever else you need.

I won a reusable grocery bag in a blog contest as well! I love it. And it helps me to not over-buy groceries too.

Cyndi said...

The first time I win a blog giveaway or get free stuff in the mail will be the happiest day of my lowly blogging career!

I need to start using canvas bags....I see people with them more and more now which is great!

E Mama said...

I Love the Stonefield Farms "go-gurt" for kids. My son loves it and it has less sugar than the other yogurts on the market for kids.

Marcy said...

I'm calling you bag lady from now on! TOTALLY KIDDING! Ohh Carly you know I heart you!

Lily on the Road said...
