Hi! I want so badly to write a post – I enjoy throwing my day down on “paper” at the end of the night – but school isn’t going to make that happen…I’ve got tons to do! I know I said I would reveal the giveaway Friday, but the goodies have been waiting too patiently to sit alone in my Drafts any longer. Here you go!


Hip hip hooray. It’s time for my 2nd GIVEAWAY! In honor of Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t resist showing some love to my fans. Thank you all for your support. Here is a little piece of my heart to you:

Organic Cotton [Grocery] Tote

Gaiam Pink Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Chocolove 55% Cocoa Raspberries in Dark Chocolate Bar

Although I love giveaways, this is most likely the last one until the Nutrition Nut finds a job or receives a generous donation, so don’t miss out!

To Enter: Leave a comment (1 per person) about one thing you LOVE about your body. It’s as simple as that. You have until Sunday, February 14th @ 12:00pm to enter before a random winner is selected.

    I love my freckles…they’re adorable. And my eyes. Oh, wait, that’s two. Oh well…I’m in a loving mood.

  • 2. fromatopink  |  February 9, 2010 at 9:13 PM

    Let’s see… I’d say my favorite thing about myself are my green eyes because they’re the same unique green color as my mom’s. That and the Cindy Crawford-like beauty mark on my upper lip! :)

    One thing I love about my body is I feel I am well proportioned. Although I could stand to lose some weight, the extra weight is distributed somewhat evenly. Over the years I have come to love myself and my body and feel fine just the way I am. The only reason I want to lose weight is for the health aspect. Aging does have some benefits, like self acceptance :)

  • 4. mom  |  February 9, 2010 at 10:23 PM

    What I love about my body is that it is strong and healthy. I seem to have been blessed with an active immune system that rarely lets me down. And at age 51 I am still physically able to do most of what I want to do…I am so grateful!

  • 5. Sharilyn  |  February 9, 2010 at 11:00 PM

    I love that I have curves and I embrace that. I also love my green eyes and and my uniquely shaped nose :) Haha.

  • 6. cami  |  February 9, 2010 at 11:06 PM

    I LOVE my back … it is strong … it is flexible … it has been through a lot of beating (major sports AND ballet injuries) – yet it continues to carry me tall and straight.

    Please count me in!

  • 7. Courtney (The Hungry Yogini)  |  February 9, 2010 at 11:15 PM

    I love…my back muscles. I hesitated to say that, but I really do love my upper back! Always have. I find I make peace and learn to love even more of me each day =)

  • 8. Tasha - The Clean Eating Mama  |  February 9, 2010 at 11:59 PM

    What a fun giveaway!
    I am loving my legs – they are strong! I am able to run with ease and they surprise me everyday. Go legs!

  • 9. soyaetchocolat  |  February 10, 2010 at 1:56 AM

    What a cute bag (and so true, chocolate is a VERY good reason to care for the planet)!

    What I love the most about my body are my legs. They are strong and lean. My genetic keeps me from getting bulky even with hardcore training. I sometimes wish I could get more muscle definition in other areas but my legs are fine just the way they are.

  • 10. Karla  |  February 10, 2010 at 4:38 AM

    I’m embracing my lips! I used to hate them but now I love them. They’re nice and full!

  • 11. Emilyeatsclean  |  February 10, 2010 at 4:43 AM

    I love my shoulders! I look forward to summertime when I can rock tank tops and halter tops and proudly show off the shoulders I have sculpted through strength training, some sweat, and lots of hard work!

  • 12. teri [a foodie stays fit]  |  February 10, 2010 at 4:50 AM

    What a great giveaway! I would love all of those things! I especially love the pink theme! And Chocolove is soooo good.

    My favorite thing about my body is my biceps. I like to flex them and show my hubby my strength. :)

  • 13. Merry  |  February 10, 2010 at 7:25 AM

    I love my wrinkles. They show the world that I have smiled a lot in my life.

  • 14. Heather (Heather's Dish)  |  February 10, 2010 at 7:49 AM

    i love my eyes…they are probably one of my favorite things about me :)

  • 15. Shannan  |  February 10, 2010 at 8:02 AM

    The one thing that I love are my eyes. People tell me that my eyes express my emotions.

  • 16. sharon  |  February 10, 2010 at 8:44 AM

    I love my mouth. I love what it looks like and what wonderful things can be said with it!

  • 17. Kelly  |  February 10, 2010 at 9:07 AM

    Hillary…this is awesome! I love that you are forcing people to seek the positives about their bodies versus the negatives :) I think the favorite thing about my body is my feet! Random I know…but they are my lifeline. They are small, fast and I have matching birthmarks on both! :)

  • 18. Shelley (findinghappinessandhealth)  |  February 10, 2010 at 9:15 AM

    you are so sweet and giving :)
    i love my hips! they are womanly and not teeeny!

  • 19. Tina  |  February 10, 2010 at 9:35 AM

    I think what I love most about me are my shoulders. They are strong, and I love how they look in the summer :)

    awesome giveaway!!

  • 20. Tami Frisbie  |  February 10, 2010 at 9:51 AM

    You are so cute! And…clever!

    I love the fact that I am 42 but feel 24! Don’t know what I’d do without running in my life!


  • 21. Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty  |  February 10, 2010 at 10:03 AM

    I loooooove pink!

    I also love my hair – it is naturally crazy blond… I’m one of the only ones! :) hehe :)

    PICK ME!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 22. Janna (Just Flourishing)  |  February 10, 2010 at 10:56 AM

    Yay for Valentine’s Day giveaways!

    One thing I love about my body… my eyes. Does that count? They are big and expressive and change color from blue to green to gray.

  • 23. Kristie S  |  February 10, 2010 at 11:29 AM

    I love that my body has the ability to move. I love that I can go places with my body alone. I love that my body is the only real machine I need.

  • 24. Laura J.  |  February 10, 2010 at 11:56 AM

    I love my tummy b/c it carried my 2 kids and even though it’s not as flat as I’d like, the end result was worth it :) 2 adorable boys who mean way more to me than a flat belly.

  • 25. Cole  |  February 10, 2010 at 12:18 PM

    What a great idea for a giveaway! I love my body because it allows me to run and do the things that I want to do, when I want to do them.

  • 26. corinne  |  February 10, 2010 at 12:20 PM

    i am 5’11 and i love my long, strong healthy legs!

  • 27. Marguerite Miller  |  February 10, 2010 at 12:30 PM

    I love that my body could handle chemotherapy and help rid itself of cancer!

  • 28. Allie Mak  |  February 10, 2010 at 12:30 PM

    I love strong and flexible legs! I did gymnastics for many many years so I have been a flexible gal for as long as I can remember (it helps that I have short limbs!). Thus, yoga poses come easily for me and I can always touch my toes.

    • 29. Hillary  |  February 10, 2010 at 12:39 PM

      I didn’t know you did gymnastics – 1 more thing we have in common : )

  • 30. Amy  |  February 10, 2010 at 12:47 PM

    What’s not to love :)

  • 31. Katie  |  February 10, 2010 at 1:15 PM

    I love my hands. I know, not exactly the body part everyone looks at, but I love what they can do and I love how a simple coat of nailpolish makes me feel instantly put together!

  • 32. Madeline - Greens and Jeans  |  February 10, 2010 at 1:26 PM

    I love my eyes! They are very green and I have a freckle in each of them!

  • 33. Tay  |  February 10, 2010 at 2:46 PM


    I love my shoulders. They are broad and strong!

  • 34. Michele | aka Raw Juice Girl  |  February 10, 2010 at 3:20 PM

    I love that my body was able to lose over 100 pounds and although I’m not skin and bones, I didn’t end up with tons of sagging skin. :-D

  • 35. Sarah  |  February 10, 2010 at 3:56 PM

    I love my eyes, they change from blue to green to grey depending on what I’m wearing. Gives me some versatility. =P

  • 36. Donna Parker  |  February 10, 2010 at 4:29 PM

    I love that you and I share some of the same genes.

  • 37. karen  |  February 10, 2010 at 4:58 PM

    I like my calves. Strong and defined.

  • 38. Kate  |  February 10, 2010 at 5:12 PM

    I love… my butt! I’m so glad I have a curvy behind haha as silly as that sounds I am proud of it!

  • 39. Katy B  |  February 10, 2010 at 6:02 PM

    I love my eyes and my booty!

  • 40. Niki  |  February 10, 2010 at 6:13 PM

    I love my eyes

  • 41. Kristen  |  February 10, 2010 at 7:21 PM

    I love my eyes and my dark hair

  • 42. Laura  |  February 10, 2010 at 8:29 PM

    I LOVE my legs — not just how they look (I love that they are strong, muscular, and defined) but I love that they allow me to waterski, run, dance, ice skate… :D

  • 43. Renee  |  February 10, 2010 at 8:47 PM

    I love my eyelashes. They are long, dark, and beautiful.

    Thanks for the giveaway, Hillary!

  • 44. Jocelyn @ Peace.Love.Nutrition  |  February 10, 2010 at 9:46 PM

    I love my eyes! I have hazel eyes—I used to want blue (even so much that I got contacts) but I love them now and wouldn’t change a thing!!

  • 45. Allison (Eat Clean Live Green)  |  February 11, 2010 at 8:49 AM

    I love my eyes, I think they are a pretty colour

  • 46. Danielle  |  February 11, 2010 at 9:01 AM

    I love my eyes!

  • 47. Bekah  |  February 11, 2010 at 9:58 AM

    Aw I love this simple giveaway. I love my abs right when I wake up in the morning and I haven’t had any food yet. I’m like heeelloo under there! ;) Great giveaway! Love Chocolove chocolate.

    And sorry I’ve been so behind on your blog – major catching up to do that’s for sure. xoxo Have a great Valentine’s Day Hillary!

  • 48. Shannon  |  February 11, 2010 at 10:38 AM

    I love my green eyes and my dark curly locks.

  • 49. Angela  |  February 11, 2010 at 11:22 AM

    I love my legs because they are strong, defined, and allow me to run!

  • 50. Angelalovesfood  |  February 11, 2010 at 11:57 AM

    I love my arms and shoulders, it is my favorite part. I feel like when I am exercising and eating right, the thing that shows improvements to changes first are my arms. It feels so nice to wear tank tops, so I can’t wait ’til summer and spring :)

  • 51. kristilyn  |  February 11, 2010 at 12:52 PM

    I love my hands because they help me create music, and they help me make delicious foods for me and my husband. They are strong and powerful and I don’t know how I would manage without them!


  • 52. Anne P  |  February 11, 2010 at 2:59 PM

    I love my butt ;)

  • 53. susan  |  February 11, 2010 at 4:12 PM

    hey hillary!

    i haven’t commented on your blog, but thought a giveaway (plus i love the concept of this particular giveaway) would be a good time to finally say hi!

    i love my brain… i’m not saying i’m ridiculously smart or anything, but i am really great at remembering people, faces, and i remember everything (especially useless information like movie quotes haha), and i find that those abilities help me connect with people and form lasting relationships…

  • 54. Tasha  |  February 11, 2010 at 6:12 PM

    you’re adorable Hill : )

    I love my calves because they’ve managed to stay defined even with the little exercise I’ve done in college. I also love my olive skin.

  • 55. Sallie  |  February 11, 2010 at 6:20 PM

    Cute giveaway!

    What do I love about my body? Since I started running last spring, I’ve discovered I love my core muscles. They’re awesome! I love that I can feel them, and how strong they’ve gotten. (I love everything running does for my body!)

  • 56. Kamille  |  February 11, 2010 at 8:09 PM

    my shoulders/collar bone area would be my pick.

  • 57. rollerkoesterrun  |  February 11, 2010 at 9:05 PM

    Hey Hillary!

    Who doesn’t love the combo of raspberry and chocolate – YUM!

    The body part that I love (and hate) the most is my mom butt! Haha! I inherited my mother’s flat rear end. I love it because I know I can’t change it and it is me, and at the same time hate that I don’t have a cute bubble butt (like my fiance). The nice thing is that whenever we have kids it will be very obvious whose rear-end they get! :)


  • 58. Karissa @ CardioFoodie  |  February 12, 2010 at 6:01 AM

    I would say I love my brain. After a year and half of law school I can’t believe how much information it has stored!

  • 59. luckytastebuds  |  February 12, 2010 at 6:57 AM

    Hmmm I really really love the shape and size of my nails!!! It’s a strange thing to love, but I used to be a REALLY large girl and I had to focus on things that made me feel pretty no matter what size I was. So my nails! All nail polish colors look fabulous on ’em! hehehe

  • 60. joy  |  February 12, 2010 at 11:20 AM

    I love that i’m a woman and being one, have curves.
    what’s a woman without that oh-so-desirable femininity!

    i am strong.
    and i love my butt!

  • 61. Christine  |  February 12, 2010 at 1:41 PM

    I love my hands!

  • 62. Erica @ Fashion meets Food  |  February 13, 2010 at 2:10 PM

    Oh my gosh what an adorable giveaway! Loving all the pink! I hear you on the money thing too! I love my hair… can I say that lol I think I spend hours pampering it.

  • 63. monicaonthego.com  |  February 13, 2010 at 5:25 PM

    I love my eyes, they are super blue and have always been my fav body part!

  • 64. actorsdiet  |  February 13, 2010 at 6:30 PM

    i love my body – all of it. i can’t pick a fave!

  • 65. healthnuttxo  |  February 13, 2010 at 6:40 PM

    I really love my arms. They are nice & “meaty” to me and super toned. Whenever I feel down about my body (dang abs, why won’t you turn into a 6 pack!?), I take a look at my bi’s and tri’s and think hey – I’ve come a LONG way, I need to give me some credit!

  • 66. Sarah  |  February 13, 2010 at 7:17 PM

    i love my eyes. they’re kinda grey, kinda blue.

  • 67. caronae  |  February 13, 2010 at 8:39 PM

    I did a month of writing one thing I love about myself at the beginning of my post everyday. It was hard, but fun!
    I love my strong running legs!

  • 68. Kim  |  February 13, 2010 at 11:56 PM

    I love my strong bones. It sounds silly but I’ve never broken anything and feel fortunate to have good bone density. Yay for yogurt and strength training.

  • 69. Yuki  |  February 14, 2010 at 1:44 AM

    Very nice giveaway!
    I love my eyes!!

  • 70. shutpuandrun  |  February 14, 2010 at 7:54 AM

    Hope I’m not too late. I am LOVING that pink water bottle!

  • 71. Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats  |  February 14, 2010 at 8:52 AM

    OMG! My eyes lit up at the sight of this entire package! Pink? Chocolate? YES PLEASE!

    Hmm – the thing I love most about my body are my hips. I know, kind of weird. I’m petite but they’re curvey – which I love!
