I’m joining up with some other bloggers this month for the Verified Mom Blog Challenge Network. The goal is to post daily (or at least more frequently) during the month of July. I tend to get a little quiet around here in the summer because our family is out having so much fun! I loved the idea and I love the writing prompts provided to us. I’m giving it a go and today’s first challenge is introduce yourself.
My first employee health screening when all my numbers improved.
That time when I placed third in my gym’s weight loss challenge and won $50.
It’s been quite a ride and it hasn’t all been rainbows and butterflies. Thanks to some medication (and some laziness on my part) I have gained back over half of the 50 pounds I lost. I’m working hard to lose it again. I don’t sugar coat anything (literally, or figuratively!) and you’ll see me share it all here.
In addition to sharing about my journey, I also talk about encouraging healthy habits with your kids. I’ve got my oldest daughter coming to the gym with me and my two oldest daughters have both completed several 5k races. We eat healthy, clean foods most of the time and we consider treats to really be treats. I’m not always perfect and I won’t ever pretend to be so don’t be surprised if you see my child eating ice cream or Chick-Fil-A fries. It’s all about moderation and that’s what I’m teaching my children.
