The average person spends about $100 on traditional Valentine's Day gifts
– whether presents for our sweeties or red and pink clothing for ourselves! If you're wondering where this extra cash for Cupid's day is going to come from this year, look no further! AOL is providing a $150 American Express gift card to help you shop for your sweetheart
this Valentine's Day! While you're at it, why not use the excess to do a little spending on yourself, or, if you're single this season, blow the entire gift card on something that makes YOU happy!
Keeping true to the fact that this is a health blog, and while I love my husband dearly, the importance of loving oneself cannot be ignored for one's mental and physical health. My new book DIET DRAMA
is the first-ever health and fitness book for young women to begin with body image for this reason – a third of the entire book is devoted to helping readers to love your body first and foremost, so that we can feed and move our bodies in the best way possible, without feeling tons of shame and embarrassment about ourselves! More on DIET DRAMA
is available here
So this Valentine's Day
, in the spirit of health, wellness, and happiness, splurge on both your sweetie and yourself
. Think about that New Year's resolution you've been putting off and dust it off so that work towards it and a better you – whether you win DIET DRAMA
and the $150 American Express gift card or not!
To enter my sweepstakes, tell me in the comments how you'd use the $150 American Express gift card and/or DIET DRAMA to love both yourself and others.
Each submission will result in one (1) entry. You can enter the Sweepstakes once, and only before 12AM EST, February 6th.
