Good morning, bloggies! 😎

Marie and I decided to take a yoga class bright and early this morning at Healing Tree Yoga, so I set up a blog post ahead of time to publish this morning. And what better thing to post than a giveaway, right!?! πŸ˜€

I love giveaways! It’s fun to give readers free stuff! :mrgreen:

Here’s your chance to win a copy of theΒ Eating Well Diet Cookbook! πŸ˜€

I like this cookbook a lot! It’s full of beautiful, colorful photos and has tons of nutritious, delicious, and easy recipes inside. Here’s a sample recipe: Grilled Rosemary-Salmon Spedini. Yum!

The cookbook is an extension of a diet created by researchers at the University of Vermont (Mal’s alma mater) called Vtrim. Basically, Vtrim’s philosophy is to make a lifestyle change for the better of your diet. They focus on behavior change””permanent behavior change. They explain it like this on their website: β€œit’s a systematic shaping of everyday common behaviors that you will be able to break old habits and learn new ones. Drinking grapefruit juice until you scream is a behavior change, of course, but not the kind that you will sustain for very long.” Additional info: VTrim Fact Sheet

To enter: Leave a comment on this post about how you’ve used behavior modification to lead a healthier lifestyle.

I’ll randomly pick a winner at tonight’s dinner post.

Good luck! πŸ˜€



  1. i track what i eat and that is the best thing for me not to over do it. like many of us, i’m obsessed with all things food and mostly obsessed with eating it. i love it and food should be enjoyed! but i know for me to get back to my happy weight and even not feel overwhelmed about thoughts of food, i plan out what i’m gonna eat for the day. that way i don’t have to think about it. i just get to enjoy it πŸ™‚

  2. I always have a bottle of water at my desk. I bought a reusable one that holds 32 oz. I make sure to drink 2 of them during the day at work. I always drink at least half of it before I get soda or anything else to drink.

  3. Well, I don’t know if this counts as behavior modification, because it happened out of necessity. But I was a hard core soda/juice drinker. But I simply could NOT afford it anymore, so I bought myself a Brita pitcher and forced myself to switch to water. Whaddayaknow! Now I can’t even stand soda and am drinking lots more water! double win!

  4. my behavior modification = responding to hunger cues! It sounds so easy but it’s something I struggled with FOREVER! whether it was eating when I wasn’t hungry or not eating when I was .. it’s been a challenge to learn how to respond to my body but I’m learning πŸ™‚

  5. Bringing my lunch to work 99% of the time. It’s too easy to choose unhealthy foods when you’re surrounded by tons of choices and have 15 minutes to run out and get something. If I bring a salad, piece of fruit, yogurt, I know that that’s what I’m eating for lunch. It’s also a money saving habit!

  6. When I’m hungry at night but it’s after dinner and I am not REALLY hungry, just bored, I knit or read a book or make a cup a tea. I keep my hands busy so they don’t wander over to the fridge or cupboard and pick up bad snacks!

  7. While I know I could never fully convert to a 100% raw diet, I’ve been trying my best to eat as much fresh fruits and vegetables as I can. So far, it’s working great!

  8. I plan dinners out a week in advance so I’m never tempted to order takeout and keep plenty of fresh ingredients around for lunches for the same reasons. I’d love a book full of healthy new recipes though because sometimes its hard to come up with new and interesting recipes to try all the time.

  9. A behavioral modification I’m in the process of making is to plan out my meals a week in advance (I’m only on Week 2, but so far it is great!). Not only do we save money by only buying the groceries we need, we can also get the higher-quality, slightly more expensive ingredients since we’re buying less!

  10. I’ve made exercise an essential part of my life. It actually feels strange when I’m unable to workout.
    Btw girl you have a lot of readers!! Your email must be off the hook today πŸ˜‰

  11. One thing I’ve really tried to do is listen to my body, whether it comes to food or exercising or getting more sleep. I realized that this is the most important thing I can do to make sure I’m not overdoing something or not doing enough of something, especially when it comes to sleep!

  12. I have been eating a lot of fruit. Atleast one fruit or banana a day! Its a small change, but it makes me happy! And drink alot of water.

  13. Ooooh, the cookbook looks great! I love a new cookbook for getting me excited about new and healthy recipes.

    Hmmmm, it has helped for me to keep a basic online food journal, so I can see when and why I am overeating, and keep an eye on keeping my diet balanced. I also record my exercise, and I hate having nothing to record so I make myself get out there and do it.

  14. I have given up soda. Mostly because I am 31 and have osteopenia and the whole soda out of a can is completely counter productive, but also because I would rather pack my calories into healthy food that fuels my body. I also eat mostly gluten free although it has been so hard while marathon training but I know I feel better when I do.

    Sorry, forgot to add great post! Can’t wait to see your next post!

  16. My behavior change is to bring lunch to work everyday instead of eating out. Not only do I save money, but I am making much healthier eating choices. I make up my salads the night before and just grab and go in the morning!

  17. A huge change I’ve made recently is breaking the ice-cream-buying habit. After growing up in a house where a gallon tub of ice cream was considered a staple along with rice and beans, I’ve moved into my own apartment and have made it a point to limit ice cream consumption (and other super sugary treats) and switched to fresh fruits!
