So you know I am pretty much in love with my DirectLife activity monitor as well as the awesome individual coaching I receive from Coach Jen. She has encouraged me, nudged me, checked up on me, and helped me to keep up with my activity goals. And I know that it has made a huge difference in my health and weight-maintenance life.
Well, the DirectLife folks are pleased that I’m pleased. And they have offered a free activity monitor including a year’s worth of individual coaching to one of my lucky blog readers!!
This is, hands down, the best giveaway I have ever had the opportunity to participate in. It’s HUGE, people! You think a box of ice cream is cool? Well, how about a year of Coach Jen (or one of her colleagues) and the best little piece of jewelry you can own???
Here’s how it will work. This prize is worth so very much more than a random comment. It’s going to take a little effort. This is what you need to do to be considered for this awesome prize.
- Follow DirectLife (@directlife) on Twitter, and tell them, “I want to win an activity monitor from @foodiemcbody because…” (finish in 140 characters)
- Visit the DirectLife website and determine if you think it really is a good fit for you. I don’t want to gift this item to anyone who is going to put it in their sock drawer and forget about it.
- Then you have TWO ways to convince ME. You can record a 2-minute video, or if you are camera shy, write a 250-word blog post on WHY you think a DirectLife activity monitor with coaching will improve your health and life, and why we should choose you. Things you might include: Have you ever tried an activity gadget before? Why do you want this one? How do you intend to reach your daily activity goals?
- Link to this post on your blog and/or your Facebook page.
- Post a link to your video or your blog post in a comment HERE. If you do not have a blog, you can email your 250-word statement to foodiemcbody AT hot mail dot com.
- ANYONE IN THE WORLD is eligible to win this prize! No geographical restrictions! How cool is that.
- Deadline: Monday, December 6th, 2010 at midnight PST. I will review all entries after I get back from Las Vegas.

Is this limited to US only or can we exotic creatures enter too?
November 23, 2010 at 1:13 am
I am pretty sure that exotic creatures can enter too, because it is coming from an exotic locale itself. But I will check to be 100% sure.
November 23, 2010 at 2:17 pm
Just got the word: NO geographical restrictions! Anyone in the world can participate! yahoooooooo!!!!!!!!!!
(but for clarification, people wanting to PURCHASE the item can only get it if you live in the US or Netherlands)
November 23, 2010 at 3:26 pm
I don’t have a Twitter account. Am I still eligible, or is this only for people on Twitter?
November 23, 2010 at 3:30 pm
You don’t need to have a Twitter account. The main thing is the blog post/essay or video.
November 25, 2010 at 6:47 pm
Happy Thanksgiving, Susan! I sent in my essay via email 🙂
See you Wednesday…

I have followed DirectLIfe on Twitter!
November 26, 2010 at 2:32 pm
I visited the DirectLife website and discussed this a bit with you via Twitter. I’ve considered this option and due to recent frustrations with calorie burn during workouts, have changed my mind and decided to enter!
November 26, 2010 at 2:36 pm
Tweeted why I want to win a DirectLife activity monitor although in 140 characters I don’t think it was adequate! lol
November 26, 2010 at 2:37 pm
Shared the giveaway on FB!
November 26, 2010 at 2:51 pm
Okay. It’s done! I may not have the most compelling story, but it’s a frustrating one!
November 26, 2010 at 2:53 pm
Posted your link to the giveaway on my blog page!

I have followed DirectLife on Twitter and tweeted (http://twitter.com/#!/hellogorgeousme/status/9444561650712578), and you can find my post (though a bit longer than 250 words) here:
Also, while I could not participate in the ice cream giveaway, I am so excited to participate in this one. Thanks for making this one worldwide, Foody and DirectLife peeps!

I just wanted to let you know that as I just moved my blog from Blogger to WP the link to my entry now is different (due to the different permalink structure on WP): http://hello-gorgeous.me/2010/11/my-directlife-giveaway-entry/
December 6, 2010 at 11:33 pm
I just had a look at my tweet and I managed to spell DirectLife with two e’s at the end, so I just tweeted it again with DirectLife spelled right this time:

I’ve done everything on your list and I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

I have visited the DirectLife website this monitoring system and Direct Life Coach sounds amazing. I would love to know how my activity can be improved. I used to wear a pedometer all the time but something like this just goes above and beyond that. I would totally love it!
I will be recording my video this weekend! What a fantastic giveaway!
December 3, 2010 at 5:31 pm
And I tweeted to Direct Life: http://twitter.com/#!/itsmecassieb/status/10799792414269440

Thanks Foody!! AND CONGRATS on that HALF!!! YOU ROCK!!

I visited the DirectLife site even though I’m already very familiar with the product. I’ve been considering one for a while, but the cost has held me back since I’m currently back in school and have to pay tuition and pay books again. Extras like activity monitors are a luxury now which is why it would be so great to win one.
