Clean Your Slate with Smart Ones & Women’s Health

Hi friends!  I can’t believe it is already Wednesday!  I love three day weekends! ๐Ÿ™‚  Plus I have a lot of fun things planned this week! In fact, yesterday I was invited by Women’s Health Magazine to attend Clean Your Slate Event in Times Square sponsored by Women’s Health and Smart Ones.

WH_Smart Ones_Clean Slate Kickoff Event

Clean Your Slate is a food confessional campaign where you can confess your food sins and then have your slate “cleaned”.  The idea is that six in ten people make resolutions and then fail to stick to them, but with Clean Your Slate you can have a second chance to achieve your goals and resolutions.  As someone who thinks commitment to healthy living is really important and not being deterred by small setbacks, I loved the idea behind this campaign!

When I arrived I headed into a confessional box where I confessed my food sin on a comfy couch!

While I was confessing, a chalk artist drew my confession while I headed outside.

Then all of a sudden, my confessional was broadcast LIVE in Times Square!  It was so cool to see my confessional up in Times Square!  After my confession appeared on the screen, a giant eraser came and erased away my confession leaving me with words of encouragement.  It doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, today is a new day and a new chance to commit to your healthy living goals!  Every plate is a clean slate!

I have to say I did feel better about my confession after it was over!  And of course there was some amazing nibbles from Smart Ones going around!

Plus I got this cute gift bag!  All in all, not a bad way to spend a day!

 If you want to participate in the Clean Your Slate challenge, you can enter here for a chance to win!

Readers, what would you confess?  Have you ever seen yourself in Times Square?  Are you sticking to your resolutions?

    What a fun way to shape folks into eating right! Sounds like a good time and some yummy samplings. I, too, sneak chocolate at night when I can smuggle small pieces into the house.

    AHH I was there too! I can’t believe I missed you. I was also there super early. I am going to post about it Friday. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wasn’t it so much fun?! I love the pr girls too they were a blast.

    That sounds so fun! I would have confessed that when I track in MFP sometimes I would re-write my portions to make it fit inside the guidelines. You know… that 1/2 cup wasn’t really a 1/2 cup….more like a little over 1/4c. lol

    Well I don’t think chocolate is so bad ๐Ÿ™‚ Confession…I ate those lava cakes for breakfast 3 days in a row! There’s a reason I’ve never done a WIAW but now maybe I should wipe my slate clean and share my eats with you guys!

    BTW I’ve loved seeing you in my inbox this morning! So happy you linked up, even if it was a total pain in the ass!!!

    I love that the slate was wiped clean – what an incredible experience to see your words in Times Square and then to get public encouragement that way!!
    My confession -I drink wine pretty much every evening!!

    There is no need to confess chocolate eating!! I’m sure it’s not much and probably dark chocolate too. Now, if we’re talking a bag of M&M’s well then there may be an issue ๐Ÿ™‚
    What a great idea for an event and I love that bag. Too cute!

    What a fun event!! I would have to confess that I always snack while cooking dinner. It’s such a BAD habit! I need to work on that for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a great idea! There’s always something cool going on in NYC, and this seems like it would’ve been an awesome opportunity to start fresh.

    I would confess that I’m really prone to binge eating – something I’m always working on. Moderation, moderation.

    Love the concept of this event and your confession! I’ve totally been on a chocolate kick in the past few weeks with Valentine’s Day and need to calm down my sugar intake, so I’d probably have the same confession! Hahaha

    I honestly don’t have any eating sins!!!!! I eat so healthfully. I know it sounds nuts, but I haven’t had sugar in 12 years. I haven’t had dairy in 12 years. I have lots of food intolerances, so I cannot eat a lot of unhealthy foods – it’s a huge blessing in disguise!! I would give me CLEAN SLATE to someone else who really needed it!

    GiGi sounds like those Jesus freaks! I am a Christian, IJS ๐Ÿ™‚ Love ya GiGi!

    This is such a cool concept! I don’t have good eating habits, that is my confession! I don’t like chocolate at all, so I don’t have that problem, it’s all the other stuff!
