My main goal is to be able to be more active so that I can be a better Mom. I have a 7 year old son and his father is not present. I need to be the one to toss the football teach him a jump shot and go bike riding. I am doing this for my son because he deserves it and giving to my son everything he needs is what makes me happiest. So I guess I am in this for us both.
I am totally changing my diet. No more McDonalds and other drive throughs. Fruits and veggies. I am also trying to involve my son in cooking as it helps him transition from fast food to home cooked. I am going to the Y 5 days a week too. My son is in first grade so I am now able to go workout in the mornings.
I am from Columbus Ohio and am a huge Buckeye! I love to watch college football. Basketball appeals to me when my son is playing and only then :-) I have been seperated for 3 years from my husband but have a WONDERFUL sister mother and 2 great Dads.
I have taken care of a young lady with CP for the last 16 years and she is like a sister/best friend/kid all rolled into one. I am very lucky to have her and to be able to be paid to take care of someone who I truely love!
