Dizclaimer: This post was totally written ahead of time. As in WAY.
As in Ive not even left for BlogHer yet let alone experienced the bloggin’ mayhem which I’m certain was Chicago.
That sleep-deprived post comes tomorrow.
Until then—a question from you:
I’m curious, where did your name come from? I get it: Miss. Fit but how did you pick it?
To my surprise people frequently ask me this question.
My intent was a play on the words: Miss. Fit & misfit (Im more the latter than the former. hang out with me in real life and you’ll quickly agree).
I went through many, many incarnations before settling on MizFit.
My favorite and the one which received a resounding NO WAY! from friends and family? SISYPHIT.
Get it? Because staying fit, healthy & balanced so resembles the myth of Sisyphus?
They didnt like it either.
At all. The most vocal of the bunch repeatedly stated it reminded her of a venereal disease (I have classy friends.).
That’s me. More misfit than Miss. Fit.
How did you choose your blog name?
If you’re not yet blogging but use an alias when you comment—- what made you select that?
(and did you, initially, select one which closely resembled an STD as I did? Please to normalize for me in the comments.)
(awkward segue. embrace it. I know it’s why you love me.)
Originally I’d planned to merely give a shout out of thanks to the folks at V-Trim and be done with the giveaway.
I was just gonna cut & paste the cover, share how they appreciated all your comments and state how they contacted me about giving away a copy of the Eating Well cookbook.
Oh, and they offered to send me one.
And I freakin adored it.
What had I expected? A cookbook with a handful of recipes Id actually attempt and a few I might pass on to more motivated-in-the-kitchen friends/family.
What did I recieve? A cookbook, a journal, a workout guide, grocery shopping tips, sample menus, fantastic exercises for working through emotional stumbling blocks with regards to healthy living, amazing photographs of the foods I *will* actually attempt to create, ideas for ways to overcome emotional eating, tips for squeezing in exercise into hectic schedules….
You get the idea.
I was entirely blown away by the book.
Call me MizCynic but Id expected a VTrim promotional piece & received a comprehensive seven step program guide to getting healthy & staying that way.
(*insert sappy music here & a montage of MizFit skipping through a meadow with her Eating Well book*)
To clarify: Much to my chagrin They’ve neither hired me nor am I getting paid for this endorsement *and* you need only to comment to be entered to win.
(Winner announced tomorrow. USA & Canada only)
