My First Blog!

Aww, momentous occasion! This is my FIRST blog. But I'm following the trend, bowing to the peer pressure. As a hopeful-author, I'm thinking this will be good for me, yes?

So a few things.

Why the title? I'll tell you why. Carrots should taste like cheetos. They're the same color. Why is one healthy, and the other has more calories, fat, etc? Whoever came up with healthy food needs to do a bit more R&D and come out with "New and Improved - Carrots!" Extra strength lettuce would be nice too. Basically, I'm always in a battle with my mind and body to get to - and then maintain - a good, healthy level of fitness and weight. So I'm sure a lot of what I post here will wind up referring to my frustrations, or successes, of that struggle. Battle, more like.

Anyway. I'm Deanna - I just turned 31. I am a mostly-stay-at-home-mom to two boys, ages 7 and 4. When I say mostly-stay-at-home-mom I mean that I DO work from home to make extra money for the family. But it's not a full time job or anything, so I pretty much refer to myself as a SAHM.

My husband is 37. He is also losing weight, or at least - working on it! He also travels for work quite a bit - so again, that will probably wind up somewhere on this blog!

So that's a small snapshot of the person at the keyboard. I hope that what I write will entertain - please comment and critique! Thanks!
