My name is Misty, I am a wife and a mother of three little ones, all of whom are a mere 17 months apart. Due to the local school system and it's lacking in some major areas my husband and I have decided to homeschool which means we now have a first grader, a kindergartener, and a preschooler all under the same chaotic roof.
In addition to the hectic life of a homeschooling mom I also own my own artisan baked goods business named Simply Sweet, in which I specialize in made-from-scratch pies, the ones like grandma used to make with no artificial flavors, preservatives, none of the junk. My business booms in the summertime with the local farmer's market being my favorite outlet for my culinary creativity.
Lastly, we are in the middle of a complete and total renovation of a home that has been sadly neglected for the last half century. We have spent the past two years ripping the walls and ceilings down the bare studs and then replacing everything. It has been a loooong process and I am sick of it. In an effort to regain a sense of balance in the midst of these three major stressors in my life I have found myself seeking a healthier lifestyle. I have played the yo-yo dieting game my whole life, but now that I am 30 life looks a little different and I now see things in a more future centered view. I want to be a healthy vibrant woman when my children are old enough to leave the nest, my business is maintaining, and my house is remodeled and beautful. After all, those are the miseries of my life right now and if I will never be able to enjoy the massive effort I've put into them then this all seems like a waste of time and sanity, lol! So in an attempt to make life easier on my future self I have commited to lose the extra 40 lbs that has hung on since the birth of my four-year-old, to pay attention to what I put into my body, and be in tune with myself as much as I can be at each stage in my life.

    Aaaand, I just found your comment on my right-spreading post, too. Thanks so much for what you shared and the encouragement to stick to my resolution. I'm sorry to hear that you can relate in some ways, and even more impressed by all that you're accomplishing in that kind of situation. Hugs, and blessings to you!

    Oh, I'm so impressed with your works-in-progress, although I can definitely see how stressful and chaotic it must get. My kids are close together, too, and I bet it can be hard for others to understand how all-encompassing their care is for you! Congratulations on being half-way to your weight-loss goal, and thank you for your compliment on my fat-me/skinny-me blog post. All the best to you with your efforts here!

    Hey there! Thanks for the kind words on my blog! Progress is what it's all about - 2 steps forward, 1 step back, it's all good! I noticed you added me as a friend, so I added you too. Best of luck on your journey!
