Bring Your Own Umbrella

 

The Morris Tribe

I’m so EXCITED!!

A few weeks ago, I won a giveaway on The Morris Tribe.  The very first blog giveaway I ever entered, and I won!  (Okay, so 24 other people won too, but you’re missing the point!)

My wonderful winnings?  A copy of Wendy Jeub’s new book, Love In a Diet.

Love in a Diet

First of all, thanks to Kelly Morris for offering this fantastic resource.  (And by the way – you should really check out her blog for some fantastically helpful info on homemaking, kid-managing, finding balance in your life…there are so many great posts!)

Secondly, thanks to Wendy Jeub for writing the book.  (The Jeub family also has a daily-updated blog that’s always informative and thought-provoking.  Check them out!)

Love in a Diet arrived in the mail today, and I definitely know what I’m doing this afternoon!  I only have 4 boys – not as big a crew as either of these other moms – but I can totally relate to being overweight and overwhelmed.  I’m really looking forward to some shared wisdom.

Being the…ahemmodel of patience that I am, I flipped through the pages before sitting down to write this post, and the one-liner that caught my eye is to “bring your own umbrella”!  Wendy’s tip is to plan ahead; if you know you’ll be out and about, and will be getting hungry, pack a “good” snack so you won’t hit the drive thru.

I’m sure there will be many more good tips, so stay tuned!
