Healthier living...Diet Coke...and being way out of my comfort zone
I was compensated for my participation in Coca-Cola's Balanced Living Workshop, but my thoughts and views are my own.
I'm going to a blogger conference.
Just typing that gets my heart racing.
I was invited to attend the upcoming Coca-Cola Balanced Living Workshop in Chicago.
And it sounds amazing.
Okay, it may have also had something to do with the maker of my beloved Diet Coke being the host! :)
I'm in serious need of a healthy living overhaul.
Remember when I said I was going to run 500 miles this year?
Try half that.
If I'm lucky.
I'll confess we are not the healthiest eaters.
And I'm afraid I'm teaching my children these bad habits.
Time to do something.
Over the course of two days I'll have the opportunity to do so many cool things:
- meet with dietitians and nutritionists
- create a wellness plan for my family
- take a trip to the grocery store for a lesson on how to make the best produce choices
- participate in cooking demonstrations with professional chefs
Two days to get energized and informed about new ways to live a healthier and more balanced lifestyle.
Saying yes seemed like a no-brainer.
For a girl like me ... the one who likes to hide behind my computer, the one who likes to hide behind my sewing machine, the one who likes to hide behind big sunglasses ...
... just getting up the nerve to say yes and go is a big deal.
I'm totally shy.
I'm totally an introvert.
I avoid eye contact at school pick-up and the pool so I don't feel awkward and weird around the other moms.
Did I just reveal too much about myself there?
I'm never so happy and content as when I'm home with my littles.
But I'm doing this.
I'm putting on my big-girl pants and driving downtown (don't get crazy now ... I will be glued to the navigation!) because I think this is a great opportunity.
I'd love a plan to help my family and me live healthier in the new year. (Eek! Did I really just type something about the new year already?!)
And if you're local and you'll be there please introduce yourself and say hi.
I'll be the girl behind the big sunglasses hiding in the corner. ;)
