Today I'm guest posting at Living Well Spending Less about “Thin Waist, Fat Wallet”, or, ten ways to save money while losing weight. I really enjoy a lot of Ruth's posts on her blog, and find them helpful in the areas of planning, organization, and saving money. So pop over there to hear what I have to say–I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments there.
If you are visiting here after reading my guest post on Ruth's blog, welcome! Since you might be interested in weight loss, as that's what my guest post was about, you can read more of my weight loss success here. Basically, I was obese, and now I'm not. Though right now I'm very pregnant and just trying to focus on keeping active and making good food choices so I don't gain more pregnancy weight than I should. You can read about my progress on these goals in my Fit Friday posts. (I'll start making them link-ups this week–would love to have you join in for some accountability!) For some key recipes that helped me shed the pounds, check out my Magic Soup recipe-less recipe, as well as my thoughts on the book Eat to Live and on being a Cheating Vegan. Very soon I'll be plotting my Post-Partum Freezer Meal Diet to help me shed any extra weight that hangs around. I'll let you know how it goes and post my plans for it soon : )
Outside of my interest in healthy living, I also enjoy decorating, crafting of all varieties, DIY-ing, and I'm getting ready to start homeschooling my oldest (almost 5 years old) via Classical Conversations this next month. I'm really looking forward to it, thought I haven't posted a ton about it yet, I'm sure I will soon. I have an insatiable appetite for learning, and think I could read a book about almost any subject and learn from it. Here's my 2013 book list. I know–I really need to read things one at a time instead of ten books at once! Anyway, classical homeschooling really fits my personality and I think it will be a good fit for my kids as well.
I'm trained as an internal medicine physician, and see my free clinic patients in the back of a medical truck MacGyver-style. A couple years ago, I wrote a novel loosly based on my first year in med school. I'd love to write another novel down the road, but with 20 hobbies and such beautiful kids to teach I'm not sure when that will be. I'm pretty sure, after living a decade in Charleston, that Lowcountry of South Carolina is one of the best places on earth, and espcially love the shore.
