If you're following this blog regularly, then you know I haven't posted in a while. I've been in transition as I move to Minneapolis, Minnesota and take up residence. And yet, here I am, from Minneapolis, writing this blog. I'm paid to write this blog; it's part of my job description.

"So how does that work?", you may ask. Well, I am continuing to work for Volunteer Vancouver on contract, remotely. And pretty part-time.

Today's guest blogger is one of our extraordinary volunteers, Suzanne Boyd - who blogs here.  Suzanne is an HR professional - and one of those incredibly smart, lively and engaged people that makes me feel a little bit inadequate in the best possible way. Suzanne facilitates training for Volunteer Vancouver. In this case, she was the presenter at a Books for Breakfast event. For more information on that program, check out the propaganda at the bottom of this post.

If you know me, you're saying that I don't need to diet. And you're pretty much right. But I do need to change my eating habits. Ever met the kid that grew up on sugary cereal and no veggies? That's me. And now I'm just the adult...
