Let me know if you have any questions, I'm happy to help where I can!

I have found the exercise videos to be awesome. A lot of them are less the 10 mins, you don't need special equipment or clothes. I will do them while I am watching tv, during breaks at work, whenever I can grab a few minutes. I have also hung workout ideas around the house. I have a preshower workout, brushing teeth workout. The kids may like that too. I have to do better preparing food for the week, but having the eating plan has helped me to get more fruit and veggies into my body. This team is always here to talk to. We are all in the same boat, and love new passengers!
Good Luck and Drink Water

Hello! I am in a similar situation. I work full time have 4 girls and I seem to have been telling myself that I can't change. I'm too busy. I know that's not true, it's just what I seem to fall back on. I am really trying to change that mentality. I want to live a more productive and healthy life. Plus when my kids grow up and have a life of their own I will have massive health problems and I don't' want that.
Welcome to the team. I'm here if you ever need anything.
Join in our monthly and weekly challenges. Our monthly challenge is focused on fitness minutes. For every 1000 fitness minutes the team accumulates, I will be donating $1 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Here's the link to the monthly challenge thread:
