Awards and Exercise

This past week The Balanced Writer was nominated by a couple blogs for The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. Luckily, it's just a photo prize because I'm still trying to shed my Christmas pounds, but who isn't, right? Last night we had a nice treat, simple Rice Krispie treats, because I figured those weren't too naughty. This morning the scale disagreed with me. Guess it's time for me to start exercising... Please tell me I'm not the only writer who fights that concept.

Thank you to Donna Hatch and her lovely blog for the nod. Donna is the author of award winning historical and fantasy. Her book covers are to die for! Check her out at: http://donnahatch.blogspot.com/

Also giving us a shout-out is Stephanie Burkhart, author of Historicals and the paranormal. Stephanie writes under the name S.G. Cardin and keeps a fascinating blog at Romance Under the Moonlight. I happen to really enjoy her lighthouse series.

It's only fair to nominate a few blogs of my own choice. Blogs are the best way to get to know your favorite authors and to discover new ones, too!

I suggest you check out these sweet blogs that I enjoy:

Also, if you're looking for a fun read, don't forget to check out this month's recommended read from mystery author, Miss Mae, It's Extraordinary, My Dear Winifred.

Have a wonderful week, and if you have any easy exercise motivation tips for me, please share!

Sure best tip is think of how much good you are doing your heart to get the heart pumping and walking off stress, I find walking the best exercise for me. Remind yourself you will feel so much better after you walk. I walk at least 30 mins 3 times a week. You can do it Rah Rah for Danielle!

Ann, I'm glad the pie is just a photo--I've never going to get rid of these holiday pounds hanging on. It's hard cuz I love to cook in the winter...

Thanks for coming by, Betty. I'm working on walking a mile a day. Wish me luck!
