It’s our birthday week — and you know what that means: We are ready to party hard. With GIVEAWAYS! via GIPHY Okay, maybe not that hard. More like this: via GIPHY But, really, excitement all around because not only are we pumped to announce the first giveaway of our 11th birthday week, but also we’re super psyched that it’s for our signature and most in-depth online coaching program: Love Your Body.

And, since our redesign last year, it makes sense that all the awards are in one spot, right? Right! (And, yep, we love some of these so much that we’ve become affiliates — meaning, if you decide to try something out, a portion goes to supporting this site. Thanks!)…
