I'm a pretty crunchy mom. I'm not afraid to get into the nitty gritty. I'm a birth fanatac. I really just can't get enough. I have three children. Two girls born the traditional way, in a hospital, lying on a gurney. My youngest, born just a few months ago, was born in my living room. My kids slept peacefully in their beds while my husband and I brought our son earthside.

Love my kids. Sometimes more than I love myself. But that's probably because they have done a number to my body. I gained over 60 pounds with my first pregnancy and managed to lose all but about 10 or so. I kept better control of myself with my other two pregnancies, gaining somewhere near 40 or 45, but still held onto 10 pounds after each. So I'm about 30 pounds up from where I'd like to be.

Now don't take my extra baby weight as a sign that I'd like to change my body, because that's just not the case. I know, what am I doing on a weight loss program? Well, yes, I want to lose some weight. I want to feel better, healthier, more energetic. But I don't want to give up what my children gave me: my belly. Its soft, and it's round, and it's covered in stripes, but it brought forth the most amazing gift I have ever received, the gift of life.

My Program:
I'm first trying to eat a healthier diet and cut out the junk. Once I have this under control I will focus my attention to portion sizes.

I'm going to try to do several short workouts during the week because I can't be away from home long. I'm going to plan my workouts to incorporate strength training exercises with little or no weight that I repeat quickly to maximize my calorie burn while slightly building muscle tone.
