Weekend Survival Plan

Weekend are always a rough patch for me. I'm starting to dread them, since I know it means I'll be faced with food, booze and more food.

We've got social events planned for every weekend in March. If I want to trim down in time for my beach trip, I have to be completely 100% focused for the next three months.

So here's my Weekend Survival Plan:
  • Stick with my challenge goal of drinking only 2 drinks per week. To do this, I'll s-t-r-e-t-c-h alcoholic beverages by drinking white wine spritzers. I'll also drink a glass of water between every 1/2 glass of wine.
  • Never go out hungry. I'll always have a small snack before leaving the house, like an apple and a handful of almonds. This should keep me from being ravenous when we go out to eat.
  • Exercise! Since I'm not drinking a bunch of liquor in the evening, I should be in fine condition to workout through the weekend. No more hangovers, which means no more missed workouts!
Hopefully that will be enough to keep me on track. This weekend is packed with social events, so we'll see how it works.

Following the huge success of The Ultimate Make Money Online Blog ( it was decided to create a second in the Ultimate Blogs series: The Ultimate Self Improvement Blog (

The Ultimate Self Improvement Blog aims to be the biggest and best selection of articles from fitness to motivation to nutrition to hypnosis to self-esteem.

The reason I am contacting you today is that I was wondering if you would be interested in becoming a contributor on The Ultimate Self Improvement.

Being a contributor would be an excellent way to promote your blog. Every post you make can have a link or two to your blog. Not only that but I will place a link to your blog on the top of the right sidebar. This is the most valuable place for links on any website.

It is so easy to be a contributor and requires very little effort on your part. You can simply copy posts from your own blog and paist them on The Ultimate Self Improvement Blog. Of course, you are fully credited for your work.

I don’t have to supply the content for the blog which means I can focus all my time on improving it and promoting it.

The Ultimate Make Money Online Blog became so popular in the two months that it has been running that I was able to pay my contributors for their efforts. I would love The Ultimate Self Improvement Blog to do the same.

I really hope you consider this offer. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

Please contact me via[at]
