helenChristine's exercise and eating journey

Hi! I'm Helen. I have a wonderful husband and 5 children. Each one has a completely different personality and different stengths and weaknesses, so they keep me hopping, trying to parent them all in their own ways... We live in NJ and we homeschool. I was born in Brazil to missionary parents and went to high school and college in Wisconsin. I studied Music Therapy in college and then worked with Alzheimer's patients for 5 years before having children.

I am doing the Gabriel Method of weight loss, starting March 2014. I also enjoy riding the exercise bike and doing the Leslie Sansone walk at home videos.

I try to follow the flylady's advice in decluttering and cleaning my home.

I am allergic to pesticides, and get nasty hives from them. The hives only come out when I'm feeling stressed and then take months to go away. I get them around every holiday, when school starts in September, and after vacations. Taking extra vitamin c's has upped my immunity and helped me get the hives under control.
