The Ever Changing Blog

when i started this blog, i intended it to be mostly about food and cooking. two things i love! over time it evolved, to include tidbits about life as a newlywed, and after the arrival of little man lincoln, it's been mostly about him. food and cooking have fallen to the wayside.

it's safe to say, i'll probably always post tidbits from our life, as this has become an online journal of sorts, and because i love food and i love to cook, i'll inevitably post recipes again as i get back into the kitchen. this blog has changed significantly since the beginning and it's about to again!

most recently, i've been struggling to lose the last of the pesky baby weight (20 lbs to be exact) but in reality, i need to lose even more, seeing as i was at my heaviest weight in my entire life when i got pregnant. it's been a long and difficult journey, full of ups and downs, plenty of frustration and tears.
i've found that i "cheat" more often than i follow any healthy diet regimen, and it's obviously hindering my efforts to lose weight. so, in an attempt to hold myself accountable, really stick to a healthy diet and exercise routine, and finally shed the excess weight i've been carrying around for a good 5 years now, i'm going to start posting my daily eats and activities here on the blog.

for the few people out there that read this, i know that could probably be pretty annoying. i mean, why do you care what i ate today, right? well, take this post as a warning of sorts, and if you don't want to know i had oatmeal for breakfast or snuck a cupcake for dessert, here's your chance to unsubscribe!

i read plenty of blogs, lots of them about healthy eating, and many of them seemed to start out this way. young women, trying to live a healthy lifestyle and blogging about it. this is just another way in which this blog is going to evolve, mostly because i need something to hold me accountable, and if i write down and take photos of what i'm eating on a daily basis, i'm bound to start eating healthier.

so starting tomorrow, you're going to see a lot more of me and what i eat and do throughout the course of the day, starting with a big trip to the grocery store to get me started! follow along or don't, it's up to you! and if you're out there, struggling to lose 5, 10, even 50 lbs and want to join in my little online diet journal, i'd love to hear from you!

and because, i hate blog posts that don't have pictures, here's one of me recently with my siblings from our trip to napa (i'm the one in red with the big 'ol belly), at a particularly unhealthy's to a little motivation to get in better shape!
