JunieB asked about my opinion on the whole Marie Claire controversy…
Although Katie Drummond did contact me a very long time ago, I’m not going to publicly comment on the controversy for 2 reasons:
1. Everything has been said at least once and closer to 10,000 times. I’m not that eloquent in the first place and I like to steal information from others, so I doubt I’d have anything consequential to add.
2. I fancy my blog to be a little different than others (in reality, we’re all the same just trying to be different) and I loathe jumping on blog trends or bandwagons, and I really don’t want to start now.
If I check out 10 blogs a day, the last thing I want to do is read 10 Feta Food Challenges… I’m not naive and I’m not caustic either; if Feta was paying my bills, I’d be blogging about it day and night. Heck, I’d take Feta to dinner AND a movie. I might even splurge for popcorn.
But Feta doesn’t pay my bills and neither does Marie Claire so I’m staying out of it. and eating some popcorn.
But if you really want to know what I think about the whole shebang, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll chat.
You know what it’s time for?? The return of Cat lady Blogs!
Our first fabulous blogger is Suzy from Ok, Just One More Beer…
My blog’s basically about my journey with Weight Watchers and the 30 pack of beer in my fridge.
I’m just a gal who lost a lot of weight (88 lbs so far thanks to Weight Watchers (and my hard work duh!!), 4 lbs away from goal weight so it will be 92 total!), started running a lot of miles about a year and a 1/2 ago, and drinks a lot of beer….I mean A LOT of beer.
Suzy also just ran her first half marathon, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadephia in a very respectable 2:31:46.
Suzy’s open and honest about her struggles, how every day of eating isn’t always perfect, but also how she’s lost nearly 90 pounds, taken up running and completed a half marathon, all without giving up her first love… beer.
Side note: isn’t that what health’s suppose to be all about?? Making healthier choices and getting healthier but enjoying life beer at the same time??
So everyone go now and say hi to Suzy and then tell her what your beer of choice is. She’s waiting to hear from you.
Thanks Suzy for the email and keep up the running! And everyone who’s emailed me, I will get to you, I promise.
And then go enter the giveaway; it ends tomorrow!
