A New Start

This last year has been one of the best of my life.  I've become a mom thanks to the adorable Jett Aaron, I'm living near my family in Wisconsin, and I've made the commitment to get my health and fitness back on track.

That is where the blog comes in.

I am a sucker for some accountability.  Nothing keeps you going like starting a journey in a very public way.

So here I am.  I aim to lose weight, gain strength, and take control of my body from here out.  So this is my beginning.

I gained a little over 40 pounds throughout my pregnancy and have lost a little over half of that already just from nursing my son, but my progress has stalled.  But I am less concerned about the numbers and more concerned about my fitness and how I feel and how my clothes fit.  So there is no goal weight.  I've decided that I am going to do this for the rest of my life and see what happens.

My son deserves a healthy mom who can play with him and keep up with him.
My husband deserves a fit wife who is comfortable in her own skin.
My family deserves to see what a person can accomplish if they only decide to not quit on themselves.
I deserve all these things and more.

My goals with this blog are to post updates about my progress and struggles, to share my workouts and food choices, and to cheer on anyone else on their own journey, be it towards fitness, strength, happiness, financial freedom, whatever you feel like you want to commit to working on!

Feel free to join in!  Prepare for honesty, prepare for change.  Prepare for The Good Work.

Changing It Up

Change is good.  The last year has been just bursting with change.

With that change, I too have changed.

And so shall this blog!

Stay tuned!
