The Winner Is.......
OK So I am not nifty with blogger at all or the internet/computer in general and I couldnt figure out how to get the nice picture of the results (I know I am lame). Just for your information I used the random number generator so trust me I did not cheat nor pick favorites.
Brittany from Unexpected Surprises won!!! I thought this was really funny because it must be her lucky week. She won Leigh Ashley's Giveaway, potty trained her son, and won mine! Crazy. So Congrats girly... If you haven't checked out her blog you really should. Her blog rocks almost as much as she does. Congrats Girly!!!
In other news, I am starting a healthy eating regime. I have decided not to call it a diet anymore because when I do people go all sorts of crazy on me. They say "Why are you on a diet", "You are skinny", and "You shoudln't do that". I'm not on a weightloss diet (but if I happen to lose 3-5 pounds I will not complain). My boyfriend and I decided to go on this healthy diet for 6 weeks because we were tired of eating crappy food. Even when I explain that to some of my friends I am still getting push back on it. Why are they angry at me for eating healthier? They said I need to cut myself some slack and "live life". Thats what I am trying to do people! I am trying to eat better so I can live a longer and healthier life.I'm not kidding. One of my friends said I was being ridiculous for giving up alcohol... Its only for 6 weeks and there are so many empty calories in alcohol. Someone else was mocking me and trying to tempt me to eat chocolate cake this weekend.
I worry about what America has come to when I am challenged because I made a choice to eat healthier. Its not like I am looking down on my friends if they decide to go to McDonalds. I don't wave a carrot in front of their face telling them how much better it is for them. Or scoff when they order a Margarita. Just last week I ate out at fast food places and drank several fruity drinks, Im just challenging myself to change my lifestyle. Mostly to see if I can. Have you guys gone on a healthy food kick before? Did you have similar reactions?
Anyway, enough complaining...I just started this "diet" on Saturday. Basically, I eat small meals every 3 hours. I am actually semi-liking it. I mean I am sad that I have given up Starbucks and most alcohol for 6 weeks (I can still drink Moscato) but I feel so much better after I eat. I start the exercising today so hopefully I do well on that. Wish me luck. I will probably keep you guys updated 1-2 times a week on my progress and any challenges I have.
