150 Followers GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!

Before I get to the giveaway, let me just let you know what's been going on with me, just for those of you who are curious and who have asked.  ;-)

First, I've been out of town since Friday, which is one reason that I've been away from my blog.  The second (and biggest) reason that I've been away is that I have not been doing too well with my eating for about a week now. 

And because A (eating poorly) always leads to B (feeling like crap), I just have been very unmotivated to blog.

But today I'm back to both healthy eating AND blogging, so I'm feeling great!  Woo-hoo!

Anyway, now that I've made you read that, here's the GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!

It will be very simular to my "100 Followers GIVEAWAY" in that you get to choose your prize and the same 4 books will be options.  But I'm adding some DVDs to the mix and you get to choose both a book and a DVD!!!  I know, right?  WOW.

Note: U.S. entries only right now.  Maybe eventually I'll go international, but for now, I have to stick with the USA due to shipping costs. 

The winner will get 1 book and 1 DVD of their choice.  Woo-hoo!

Here are the options for books, copied straight from my first giveaway-

1) The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone
2) Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnuoin
3) PETA's Vegan College Cookbook
4) Intuitive Eating by Elyse Resch and Evelyn Tribole

And the three DVD options are here.  * Note that I have never used the 30 Day Shred, but I figure that there are so many positive reviews for it out there that it's okay to give away without a personal endorsement!  Plus, if the winner wants to choose it, then maybe I'll order myself one too and we can Shred together!  Awesome.

Okay, now for the FUN PART!  Here's how to enter.   As promised there are more chances to win this time!

1) Mandatory entry- Follow my blog! (for 1 entry)

2) Like my blog's Facebook page (for 2 more entries)
3) Link to my giveaway in your blog or on Facebook! (for 3 more entries)
4) Link to my giveaway on Twitter and mention me @LeahKNew but not required to follow me because I tend to retweet a lot of political stuff and celebrity gossip.  I know, I know... (for 4 more entries)

5) One more mandatory thing to mention- YOU MUST leave a comment on the giveaway, telling me which things you've done in #1-#4. 
That's a total possibility of 10 entries per person!  YAY!!!  :-) 
The winner will be announced Wednesday August 10th in the evening.  You can enter up until 5 p.m. central time on August 10.
Okay, let the entries begin!
