The old saying goes that you can’t judge a book by its cover. That’s an old and clichéd saying for a reason: you really can’t. Just like books shouldn’t be judged by their outsides, people’s true worth shouldn’t be judged by their appearance either. There is so much more to someone than that!
I’m excited to have been selected as one of Lean Cuisine’s Phenomenal Ambassadors. I’ll be working with the brand all summer to help share great stories of accomplishments and great food. I’m especially excited because their new Feed Your PhenomenalTM campaign focuses on feeding the greatness in every woman and on the fact that women should be valued for their accomplishments as opposed to their weight/appearance.
One of my accomplishments that I’m particularly proud of is earning my master’s degree. I’m, of course, also proud of my bachelor’s degree, but most of the time I worked on that, I was working part-time while going to school full-time. I also didn’t have any kids until my final year of working on it. Earning my bachelor’s degree wasn’t easy, but it was under very different circumstances than my master’s degree.
When I started working on my master’s degree, I already had two young children with a third on the way. I was staying home full-time with them, but also working part-time as a receptionist at a local medical facility. This included 12 hour weekend shifts!
Not only did I manage to make it through those six semesters of graduate school without losing my mind, I finished having received an A in each of my classes for a cumulative GPA of 4.0. I also like to think that my success in balancing it all is one of the things that encouraged Eric to go back to school just after I finished. He worked full-time and went to school full-time to earn his bachelor’s degree, finishing just a couple of years ago.
Now, let me tell you a little more about some of the exciting new changes at Lean Cuisine!
Lean Cuisine is completely overhauling its brand. The brand is reintroducing itself as a brand focused on modern eating; with it, comes new bold, ethnic flavors, new attributes, contemporary packaging – which I’ll be writing about later – as well as a new brand campaign that I’m thrilled to share with you today.
To kick things off, Lean Cuisine is releasing a video featuring real women “weighing” themselves to help start a social conversation with a message that reinforces that the most important thing we should weigh is our accomplishments. Seriously – go watch that video. It’s great. I may have even teared up while I was watching it. (Okay, I did.)
I can’t wait to share all of the great changes at Lean Cuisine a couple more times this summer! Until then, please check out Lean Cuisine’s #WeighThis video! And then answer this question in the comments to enter the SheKnows sweepstakes for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card:
