the beginning…

December 15, 2009

After many months of being an obsessive blog reader I finally decided to start my own little blog.  The actual inaugural post has proved to be harder than I ever thought, so here goes! How does one start something like this as it is much like starting a book in the middle of the story, right? Anyway, my name is Wendy and I love food… all types, flavors, shapes… everything! I have always been this way as long as I can remember.  This love affair with food has proven good and bad in my life thus far.  Unfortunately it has made me slightly overweight, but has given me countless hours of joy spent cooking, baking, shopping and sharing amazing dinners with friends and fam.

I have struggled with my weight for some time. I can remember being on some sort of “diet” since I was in junior high (even though I was not overweight at the time). I have always has this on/off mentality with dieting.  Either I am super strict or it’s a complete free for all with no rules… This is, as you may know, not a healthy attitude toward food.  About a year ago I got really serious about changing my lifestyle and not just “dieting” and I really work toward eating whole, real foods and getting active. This blog is a way for me to share my experience with others and to show how much healthy flavor and fun is out there.  I still struggle with balance but isnt that what life is about? Anyway… stay tuned!
