It's About Feeling Sexy

Hello,

My name is M. I'm a Stay At Home Mom (SAHM) during the day to two boys (Elijah, 5, and Noah, 3). Well, I only have one during the morning and the other is in school but I have them both in the afternoons. At night I go to work. I work graveyard at a hotel (from 11p-7a) and so I usually only get about 4 hours of sleep a day; if I'm lucky, I can get 5 or 6 via taking a nap before I go to work but my mind has troubles shutting up and so that doesn't always happen.

Hello,

I was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa but I currently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my husband of five years, my two sons, and our two dogs.

I have a journal/blog post about my goals and such as it's much easier to do it that way..trust me.

For me, it's not about weight loss, it's about feeling sexy. Now, I'll grant you, I don't necessarily feel sexy being over weight but I don't feel sexy while trying to lose weight either..I feel deprived. I feel deprived of the things I like (like junk food and soda) and I know that those deprivations are probably for the best, it isn't necessarily healthy for my outlook on myself or my emotional health.. Now, I know that sounds like a load of BULL and it probably is, but quite frankly, I don't care. I'm in the type of place where I equate being skinny with being happy and that just isn't going to happen until I'm happy while being over weight. So - I'm going to stick with choosing to do things that make me feel sexy rather than skinny..

So there universe!! :P

My Goals:
My goals are simple - get and stay healthy and show my kids that it's fun to be healthy.

My Program:
Right now my main programs are to reduce the amount of calories/junk I eat and replace them with more fruits and vegetables and more filling things as well as be more active.

Personal Information:
I like to sing, sew, write, type, and bake. I have a very eclectic taste when it comes to music and while I like lots of different shows, I can't exactly say that I'm eclectic in those tastes. I love to read! I prefer fantasy books (like Lord of the Rings) but my favorite book is Pride and Prejudice..

I've been married for 30 years and have grown daughters and still struggle with that from time to time. We just need to be patient with changing our body images realisticly

Yep totally relatable. For the past 6-8 months I've been doing good going to the gym but next week I'm starting a temp job that won't allow me the time to get there. Then with my boys soccer schedule I'll have next to no time except for early morning and late night. I know I'll need motivation to workout. Hopefully we can help each other along this journey and cheer each other on!
