I am a new mommy after a 15 year break. I have a son in high school and an infant. Besides being a mommy, I am also a wife. I work full-time, own a dog, and a cat.

Working out, eating healthy, and still managing a household is difficult. I have a great husband who tries to take care of the bulk of the housework in between college work and taking care of our daughter.

I don't like cooking. I never have, and I doubt I ever will truly enjoy it. It is a necessary evil and I recognize that it is something that needs to be done. Therefore, my hubby and I have made a commitment to one another to start eating better and cooking at home. First thing to add is salad...in addition to our veggies.

Together, we will get healthy, fit, and in control of ourselves!
