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.
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…ahem…model 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!
