Photography is a passion of mine. My hubby snapped this shot when we were up north at Amnicon Falls





My sister and me (she's the little one in the front with the pipes!) We used to be about the same size. She lives in FL and works out regularly and inspires me :)



I have 2 pics in my gallery

Officially "In my 30's"

I just turned 31, I'm a mom of 4 boys. I also work full time heading up the Graphics Department and have recently started a photography venture that I work on in my 'spare time' if there is such a thing. My two biggest issues with healthy diet/weight management are the busier I am, the more excuses I have to NOT do it and I've never had to work out or eat right to maintain my weight, but mother nature has caught on and it's been hard to re-learn good habits to be honest :)

My Program:
My first step is changing my eating habits and tracking and measuring my food.

Monday will officially start my morning walk/run. I will get up at 4:30 am since I seem to have trouble fitting it in after work.

On the weekends, I'll elect to walk/run with the family during the day.

Personal Information:
We live near Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I enjoy photography so much. I head up the Graphic Arts Department at my company and I just LOVE my job :)

Other Information:
I'm not a girly girl but I clean up nice. The quote I've been using lately is 'Don't undervalue your work. Seek criticism, not praise. Never stop learning.'

I find it applies to many things on a regular basis!

nice to meet you mom of 4 boys!!!---wow, you are my hero!

yep, i've heard of the buying back the candy or the candy fairy.....but for us the biggest lesson we can teach our girls with the candy is moderation...is to have self-control...and if candy is respected, it's so much more enjoyable......

my husband is who i have to watch out for,....i don't eat any candy anymore, since cleaner eating, i have zero desire for it....but once in a while i will go buy 73% chocolate for PMS, only to go into the pantry and find out that it's all gone....ahem, ahem, thanks DH the thief....so i got smarter..i hide my chocolate bar because obviously he has no control or the ability to think 'hey, my wife bought this...maybe i should save her a piece'...lol...i still love him : )

Thanks for adding me as a Friend!! What a great name; as soon as I saw it I had to say it out loud and I smiled and I said it again and I thought, "That must be a fun name to have!!"

Have a great day!

Thanks for your comment on my SP blog!

I guess I just don't understand the collecting of friends on facebook!
maybe I have the wrong concept of friend.

Thank you so much for your encouragement. It really means a lot. Despite my faith, it has been difficult to put my anger and hurt aside and pray for those people. But I have prayed for them to find God in their lives and find peace and love again. By doing so, it's brought peace and balance back into my life. However, I'm still human, and, believe me, I still have my moments where I'd love to really give them a piece of my mind!

Hugs and love,
Amy
