One Healthy Sucker Returns

Ready, Set, Ok...

I'm back, I'm back, now whatchu think about that? (that's my best cheerleader impression. I wish you could see me but you'll just have to imagine this one.)

This has been an extremely long hiatus. But I have to tell you, the emails, comments and page views have really touched me. I've had more than one reader tell me they would really like to see me return to the blogosphere because they get a kick out of my writing style and actually feel like they're informed. To them I say, "Why thank ya kindly folks". So in a effort to continue to do my part in the living healthy campaign, One Healthy Sucker returns to regular posting. YAY!!!

Spirit of Giving Contest

So I told you yesterday how good it feels to give...Remember? In the spirit of giving and to experience even more of the good vibrations, OHSucker's having its own "Feel Good" Contest. Because Soldiers' Angels and the We Stuff 4 Soldiers Project are close to my heart, my contest is centered around supporting them! YAY! Here's what's going down:

Spread the word about the We Stuff 4 Soldiers Project in a blog post. The WS4S Project must be mentioned in the beginning of your post. Also in that blog post, share a giving story, tips on how to give, top charities to give to or your thoughts on the goodness of giving. Once you've written your post, come back to this post and leave a comment with a link back to your freshly penned words of giving inspiration. What will you get for giving? An entry in a drawing for $50 smackeroos...(cash) via PayPal. Plus if you actually enter the giving contest We Stuff 4 Soldiers is having, you'll get a nice little something just for entering there too!

Spread the word and hurry back to let me know what you've done. The OHSucker contest ends this Friday (August 10) at 11:59PM!
PS: I'm having this lil' ol contest posted all around the net (including sites like ContestBlogger) because I sooooo believe in giving and I want to give as many of you as possible the chance to win 50 of my bucks!

Do Some Good

Have you ever heard someone say doing things for others makes you feel better? Or maybe doing good makes you a better person? I have and I do! One of the charities I'm involved with is Soldiers' Angels. SA is an all volunteer 501 (c)(3) non profit organization that supports our military members (including Veterans) and their families during and after their deployments.

As an Angel I've adopted a soldier (well in my case I have a Paratrooper, a Marine and a K-9 Team: handler & military war dog) with the commitment to send 1 letter or card per week and 1-2 care packages (doesn't have to be large or expensive at all) per month. I'm also a Team Leader for the Letter Writing Team and a member of the VA (Veterans Affairs) Team. This is an AWESOME fulfilling experience. Every time I hear back from my soldiers or someone I've written from the letter writing team, I feel such a rush of the "warm fuzzies". It feels so good to help. You wouldn't believe how many of these guys and gals don't receive mail. Just to hear their name at mail call boosts their morale. I love it!

So how can you get your own case of warm fuzzies? Well, you can join Soldiers' Angels or you may want to sponsor a "make your own stuffed animal" kit from We Stuff 4 Soldiers. If you're sponsoring a kit or making a donation to We Stuff 4 Soldiers, you may want to check out the contest going on over there. You can receive a "Stuff On Us" Plushie Gift Card from StuffandPlay and be entered into a drawing for a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate. How's that for making a case for "it's good to give AND receive"?!

Why I Love Larry Winget

Since we're still working on the Mental aspect of the Total Living Routine, I wanted to share with you one of my mentors from afar. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the "Pitbull of Personal Development", Larry Winget! (insert crowd applause and cheering). For those of you who don't know who he is, let me have the pleasure of telling you. He's one of the most real people you'll ever have the fortune of being exposed to. His way of whipping you into shape mentally sets you up for success in all the other areas of your life, especially your finances. That's the number one reason why I just love him. It's great to see an actual role model of someone who had nothing rise into success. It makes us believe that we can all do it. Larry has such a love for people and it's genuine. He reminds me of

How about picking up a few of Larry's books or checking out his A&E show on Saturday mornings. You'll fall in love with him too!
