a year ago this weekend, i went to my oldest son's flag football game and talked to my girlfriend jen about what i was about to do: clean out my fridge and pantry and go grocery shopping for "cleaner' food.
yesterday we had another flag football game. i saw her, gave her a big hug and said, "you and i spoke exactly one year ago today. today was the first day of my food change."
i really don't even know how to describe how i felt watching the game. reflecting on how i took my family's food life by the "go-nads" without any guarantees that it would work.
man, am i glad i did.
today is the day i tackled blogger and signed myself up for one crazy ride.
oh jen. thank you so much for cheering me on that day, for not telling me i was crazy and for sharing your successful experiences with food and family. you were such an inspiration that day and you still are. totes to you my dear.
it got HOT sitting on those bleachers, so i went down under to see where the kids were all hanging out and popped a squat myself in my beach chair.
i told abbie what day it was and she gave me that face. HA!!
so far so good in 2nd grade.
i still feel like i'm in a cage sometimes, with the weight of the bleachers on my shoulders.
bring on the yin and yang spiderman.
