"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
Hello, my name is Laurie. I'm a 30 something stay at home mom on the quest to be healthier, and lose weight. I chose healthier first because I need to be a better example for my children. I have been on the weight loss roller coaster for most of my adult life. I don't want my children to follow the same path. So now I am eating more fruits and veggies, in the hopes they will follow my example. I work out as often as I can, normally 4-5 days a week. My kids (2 and 5) mimic me, which is pretty cool. They do pushup and situp right next to me, and my five year old even does burpee's with me. I love to cook and bake. Always have. And not to toot my own horn, but I do both extremely well. My husband even jokes that he married me for my cooking. This challenge is great for me because I need to learn healthier ways to cook. I am a butterton (if you remember the commercial). I use a lot of butter, I fry in olive oil, I use lots of cheese. I truly hope this challenge will help me learn a healthy and tasty way to cook.
