Bird's journey to bird-dom

Hi,
I am Kim and I am a married 37 year old mother of two boys (Ian 5 and Ethan 3). Two babies in three years does NOT do the body good.

Just a little extra information. I am an avid birder (hence, the screenname) and when I realized I would have to live in a cardboard box on the street due to the pitiful salary, I switched my career from Ornithology to government contracting. The cons I spend all day indoors now and it is boring. The pros, I can feed my children and I no ...
Hi,
I am Kim and I am a married 37 year old mother of two boys (Ian 5 and Ethan 3). Two babies in three years does NOT do the body good.

Just a little extra information. I am an avid birder (hence, the screenname) and when I realized I would have to live in a cardboard box on the street due to the pitiful salary, I switched my career from Ornithology to government contracting. The cons I spend all day indoors now and it is boring. The pros, I can feed my children and I no longer have poison ivy on my everything.

I look forward to getting to know everyone.

UPDATE October 14, 2011: Those babies are 7 and 5 now and I am in the best shape of my life despite being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis on January 28, 2011. I have bad days but most are good and I don't let the bad stop me. I run 4-5 times a week and am always doing things with my boys.

My hubby jumped on the bandwagon with me and has lost 30lbs and looks and feels great. He runs as well though we don't run together.

This journey has taught me that I can do anything I set my mind to. I want to instill that mindset in my children and be a good example of health for them as they grow.
