About Me

TN, United States
I am 31 years old and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 13 years now! We have two children, one boy (9) and one girl (7)! I was very athletic in High School and began modeling and working out right after high School. I had been a steady size 5 in high school and went down to a size 1 for modeling! I was so skinny! Anyways, after two complicated pregnancies on bed rest for months, I found myself 90 lbs heavier! I have struggled for 9 years now trying to get the weight off. I have finally gotten somewhere!!! :

My daily challenges for this past week

I have not been doing much working out b/c I have SO much going on in my life right now that is keeping me going BUT I did participate in a daily exercise challenge three times this week and am SUPER proud of myself for reaching my goals I made!

Challenge 1- Push ups! I set a goal of 100. I completed 100 push ups.

Challenge 2- Squats! I set a goal of 100 and completed 100 squats

Challenge 3- Dips! I set a goal of 100 and completed 100 dips!

I am hoping to begin working out on Monday. Nothing major just a quick 20-30 minutes of something! I will be taking it easy the first week but my hope is that will get me back in full swing! :)

Wish me luck!!! :)

My journey has SLOWED down but fortunately the weight loss has not. :)

I had all intentions on beginning my journey right after Christmas but there were other things in my way! Life throws us tons of road blocks and all we can do is make the best out of those road blocks. My husband became very ill and taking care of him became top priority! Therefore me and my goals had to wait. I am happy to have finally found a reason to my husbands 7.5 years of suffering from Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. We now know that he has Celiac Disease and has since he was born. We were forced to go gluten free but I am happy with that! I was overwhelmed and worried at first. I was sad at all the things we could no longer enjoy. I mean...we cant even go out to dinner!! No fast food lunches! We now have to be prepared. We MUST eat before we leave and we MUST be prepared when we do go places. As overwhelming as it can seem....when you really look at it.....its the right way to eat anyways! Since going gluten free I have lost down from 162 to 148 so far! We drink smoothies daily and almost every smoothie includes a green, flax oil, hemp seed, and for me chia seeds!

Smoothies are a GREAT way to get your raw foods in and they usually taste pretty great!
While taking my journey down the gluten free lane....I have decided to blog about it. Mostly my food choices, recipes and what products are gluten free. I plan to add to it regularly b/c it is truly important to me.

Once I begin to get fit and reconnect with my fitness journey, I will update this blog as well. If you would like to follow me on my Gluten Free Journey then you may do so by clicking HERE!
