My apologies to anyone who was looking forward to a Promotion Friday post yesterday and didn’t get one. Work has been a little loopy thanks to our department’s unofficial boss being on vacation, so I really didn’t have the chance to get to it. But I somehow managed to snag a Saturday off (a rare and blissful event when you work in the service industry!), so I figured, we’ll have have Promotion Friday on Saturday instead.
Last week, I fluffed my feathers a little bit talking about my story’s acceptance into The Maine Review (which still hasn’t arrived, ugh, I’m going crazy with anticipation here!), while Lauralynn Elliott shared the new Bride by Design anthology and we got to meet Salem the Cat via ArcaneHalloween to celebrate 1000 likes.
This week, I don’t have a whole lot to promote. I’m sort of on the cusp of a few things going to happen that aren’t quite there yet, so I figured I’d share something that’s been really helpful these last few weeks. Two Tuesdays ago, I was suddenly struck with that awesome burst of inspiration to really buckle down and do something I’ve been meaning to do, which is get in better shape and drop some LBs. This lead me to discover My Fitness Pal, which has been absolutely indispensable. I’m one of those person who like to get down and dirty with numbers, so I’m a little bit addicted to their calorie logging feature. It also has a scanner so you can just scan a product and it pulls up the nutritional information, and what I really, really really love is the recipe feature, so I can enter in my ingredients and serving sizes, and it not only calculates the calories for me, but saves it so that the next time I want to make it, I can just pull it up and log it with ease. If you haven’t already got a fitness/calorie counting app and have been thinking about looking into one, I definitely recommend MFP. I’ve been loving it so far.
So, your turn. What have you been loving lately? Any new releases, blog posts, websites, apps, or anything else to share with the world? Give me and my new readers something to look into on this fine rare Saturday off!
