Goodbye May 2013

It's the last day of May.

I can't say I'm sad to see it go.  There was good times and bad times.
Mostly I'm glad it's going the way of April 2013.  April wasn't very nice to me either.

So c'mon June!  My year/life/attitude all need to get better.

Here's to the start of summer....and my first giveaway...in my next post!

Wendy's is all natural right?

For those of you who have been following my blog for a looooong time...you know that I battle with my weight. I successfully lost a whole bunch of weight a few years ago. I did it the old-fashioned way, good diet and exercise.

Then I had a baby.

Then I'm pretty sure I forgot who I was.

Then I was bummed out.  And overweight again.

But I am back!  (the real me..the one who puts pink and purple streaks in her hair and wears really cute boots.)

And I'm getting back on my all-natural eating path again. And this time...I have better motivation. And I'll probably get a little nuttier about it.

Because I have a little girl who needs to learn how to eat healthy.

So yesterday we visited our local health food store. We were going specifically to get some "organic" milk because I wanted to know how expensive it was. While we were there I asked Zoe, what should we get?

She stated we should get the following:
Milk. Bread. Apple. Fruit. Cheez-Its. ....and French Fries. (she loves her fries)

Due to the late hour (because of an accident on the highway) we were WAY behind schedule for dinner. So I got milk, apples, a fruit packet thing that kids love, the Annie's cheese-it type of crackers they were sampling and off we went to get dinner.  Zoe ate about half of her strawberry/apple packet thing (what are they called?  They look like this:
 
Apparently they are just called Baby Food?  Anyway, she likes those. But that wasn't going to be enough for dinner.

So I exit the parking lot for the hippie crunchie health food store...and turn right into a Wendys.
From the back seat I hear "Yeah! French Fries!"

Keep in mind she is TWO.

And then I hear (as I pull around to the speaker): "And how about some chicken?"

The guy at the window must have thought I was crazy...because I couldn't stop laughing.  She loves her fries and chicken. :)

So yes, she will be learning about all natural healthy eating. But she will be allowed junk too.
As my journey progresses...you guys will hear more. I'm working with a coach and I'm pretty excited about it. Although I really didn't know what I was getting into it. I have had a MOUNTAIN of paperwork to fill out.  She's a trainer, nutritionist, health coach, life coach and everything all rolled into one.

Stay tuned for my GIVEAWAY....I'm excited for it!

TWO Giveaways!

I'm coming back.

I even have a hilarious story about my daughter to share.
And....I'm going to have TWO giveaways!  Oooh! 

AND....I got to interview a new favorite author. WOW! All coming soon!

Maybe tomorrow? ;)

If you don't want to miss all the fun, make sure you subscribe to my posts. You will get an email every time I post something (though I think you actually get it the day AFTER I post which is a little annoying). Just enter your email on the right hand side where it says "Follow by email" and click submit. That's it! Easy peasy. You will then be notified whenever I post.  Which is convenient when I decide I'm not going to write for a while and you want to know when I DID write without having to visit my website all the time. :)

Regular posts coming back soon...

I'll be back to posting again soon.

I've had lots of things I want to talk about, but real life was just way too busy for a while.

I still need a real break.

So give me about a week or so.  And I'll be back.
And with a giveaway! :)
