I live in Iowa and have been married to the love of my life for 7 years. (Jay baby, you are amazing)!
I am a 33...... almost 34 year old mom of a 14 yr old (Alyssa) and a 10 yr old (Donovan). I just graduated and will begin my new career as a physical therapist assistant this week (Wednesday) with Odom Health and wellness.
I have become addicted to working out and making fitness and health a priority this last year!
It all started with a small 2 week challenge last winter! Thanks mamavation! After that I began working out with a trainer a couple days a week for 8 weeks (my birthday gift from the hubby) and joined an amazing gym!
NowI want more than anything to be a role model for my kids, my patients and those around me. I feel better than I did at 30 and hopefully at 40 will feel better and healthier than even in my Early 20's.
I am working towards a healthy body fat % and later want to work on getting into the athletic category.
Last year I was shocked when my scale read 186lbs (which is more than I weighed at 8 months prego with my now 10 yr old son) and was even more shocked when my trainer said my body fat % was 35% (after the 2 week challenge and already losing a few pounds and several inches)! Wowza.... Well today I am 30% bf and down to 161 lbs (which is great but stinks because before my last clinical I was down to 156lbs but real life 40 hrs of work, plus running 2 kids and studying left very little Time for me). My newest goal is with my new career starting soon to prove to myself I can continue my workouts and healthy life and can make time for myself!
With the help of my handsome hubby and my crazy kids I will succeed and hopefully my family will get healthier and stronger!
