Hi there, and thanks for visiting!
I’m a mom, a wife, a graphic designer, a blogger, and I love to cook. And I really like to eat. I sort of like to exercise. But after the birth of my baby girl in February of 2010, I was really feeling like I needed to get back on track with working out. I wanted to have more energy to play with my girl, and I wanted to be healthier not only for me but to be a better example for her. Of course it took me a while to get back to the gym, but I did Memorial Day weekend of 2011. While my weight hasn’t changed much, I have lost 10.5% of my body fat since then — just by working out at least twice a week and making minimal changes to my diet.
I started blogging about “parenting tips” in October of 2011. It was while I was writing my last blog post about what Chicken McNuggets are really made of that I kind of hit a wall with food. I need to eat better. Period. I have to eat everyday, and I don’t always make good, healthy choices. And I want to be healthy, eat less processed food, exercise more and have more energy… and just feel better. Losing weight wouldn’t hurt, either. Um, yeah… cos I really do
want need to do that, too. (BTW, I think I have reverse anorexia — I look in the mirror and I don’t think I look that bad… but then I see a photo of myself and I’m like WHOA!! Why am I not standing behind a chair!?)
The bottom line: if I make some changes to my diet I would start to see a difference on the scale.
Maybe we can inspire one another ;-)
