Paying Forward the “Beautiful Blogger” Award

I’m very flattered to have received an award from Brandi at Lavidasubida.

The rules of the award are that I have to tell you 7 things that you don’t know about me yet…

1. For two seasons, when I was about 9 and 10 years old, I was the only girl in the boys little league baseball league.
2. I went sky diving (a tandem jump) in 1998. My husband and his friend did it as well. That was before we had children. Words cannot describe how amazing it was.
3. My very first job, after I got working papers at age 16, was at a local Burger King. (Those brown and orange polyester uniforms were the worst!) I have vivid memories of standing over the french fry bin and stuffing my face with fries. I also vividly remember melting bacon and cheese in the microwave and eating it, over and over again.
4. When I was about 14, I was a mother’s helper in Atlantic City. The boy I watched was 2-1/2 years old and had cerebral palsy. Long story short – I once had to give him the Heimlich maneuver to keep him from choking on a peanut butter sandwich. Thank goodness it worked! It made me so ill though, the family had to cut their weekend short to bring me home.
5. I got certified for scuba diving, along with my husband, before our honeymoon in 1997, so we could dive the coral reefs of Australia.
6. I am one of those weirdos who is always cold.
7. I am an embarrassment to the female race – I do not like shopping, I know next to nothing about make-up, designer labels or shoes, and I’m not into fancy jewelry.

The 2nd rule is that I have to pass the award on to seven other Beautiful Bloggers. Yikes! This is hard, there are so many I like! So in no particular order, here are some, ok, ten, that I didn’t get to mention when I was lucky enough to win one of these awards a month or two ago…

1. The Balance Broad
2. Waisting Time
3. Anonymous Fat Girl
4. Eating Journey
5. The Giggly Bits
6. Living Healthy in the Real World
7. A Weight Lifted
8. Poise in Parma
9. Tippy Toe Diet
10.Half of Jess

I hope you’ll check these out! They are all great blogs about things like losing weight, eating disorders, intuitive eating, healthy living and fitness, mixed in with life.

A shout out to Michelle at Eating Journey for her awesome Happy Giveaway.

    Wow, you have some real interesting stuff about yourself. I am looking to go to Australia maybe this Christmas but I could never do the scuba diving thing. I am not a huge water person. Also with the melting bacon and cheese in the microwave at BK….it is sad but I could see myself doing that. I swear tho, bacon, cheese, and fries are one of the best side dishes in the world!! (add some ranch dressing to the mix and is pure bliss). BTW, I also wanna say congrats on saving someone’s life that is one of the best things you could have done.

    man, i haven’t had bacon and cheese in so long, but i know for sure that i ate enough back then to cover me for life! =)
    and thanks, havng to do the heimlich was very scary, i actually ran a fever afterwards because the whole experience was so upsetting to me.

    I remember those polyester uniforms — mine was Taco Bell brown and orange (Taca Taca Taco Bell).

    I bet that family of the 2 1/2 year old were so thankful to have you.

    You are not an embarrassment to the female race. Those things do not define a woman despite what the media tries to push. You are amazing, and it’s neat to learn more about you.

    lol! i bet the taco bell ones were just as bad. so uncomfortable and they didn’t breathe well.

    the family was grateful. oddly enough, the mom told me afterwards that he had choked before and you just needed to hold him totally upside down. *sigh*

    and thanks, gina, i am just so un-girlie, i sometimes feel like i don’t fit in. i appreciate you kind words!!

    Oh my gosh, I am so late chiming in on this! First of all, THANK YOU for the award! I am so incredibly thankful to have “met” you. And I loved reading your 7 things! My, oh my….I could have written 6 and 7. I’m glad to know I’m not the only woman who doesn’t really enjoy shopping. Okay….if I had a million dollars burning a hole in my wallet, THEN I might enjoy it! But I probably only can handle it once every other month – if that. And skydiving?! I’m so jealous! I wish I had the guts to do that. I am terrified of heights….like, I have nightmares elevators dropping and being high up! I can’t imagine how amazing that must have been for you. Maybe one day I’ll be brave enough to try….
