So much has changed in my life. I have gone from being a full-time Restaurant Manager and full-time Law Student to Owning and Operating a Boer Goat and Chicken Farm. I now live in the country, am married, have added 2 step-children to the list, and am trying to learn how to manage being a stay at home mother and farm owner.

My husband works full-time in the evenings which leaves me dealing with the kids, the farm, and all of those things 5 days of the week by myself. I am having to learn to readjust and figure out a schedule.

I gained all the weight back I lost and then some (as always happens when I let myself get off track) so I am working on getting back on track and learning to do this journey in the situation I am now in.

Member Since: 7/9/2010

Fitness Minutes: 19,662

My Goals:
My goal is to learn to eat healthy and be happy with the person I am.

My goals revolve not only around healthy eating but about learning to love myself, put myself first, and growing past the negatives in my life and learning to be who I am.

My Program:
I am watching fat grams, calories, and exercising daily as well as journaling.

Personal Information:
I have 5 wonderful children. I own a farm. I am married to a wonderful man who works full-time outside our home which leaves me to do the biggest part of the farm work by myself. I am enjoying learning and spending time with my animals as I figure out this new journey.

Other Information:
I love reading and genealogy. I love reading true crimes and anything having to do with forensics. I am learning to garden and enjoy doing all kinds of crafts. Flea markets, trade days, and garage sales are my venue of choice.

    Hello! My name is ON_A_DIET. How are you?

    I am writing to ask if I may be co-team leader of Savings Jar? I am very frugal and know how it feels to live on a budget.

    I am team leader of a few teams. So, I do have some experience.

    Contact me at your earliest convenience.

    Happy Friday! Control is a tough issue for a lot of us. We can control some of what we do, but we can’t control everything! Keep pushing towards your goals. Even if you do not reach all of them, don’t give up! You can alter your goals or make new ones! Do your best to keep a positive and/or realistic attitude. You are AMAZING and WONDERFUL!

    “You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” – Brian Tracy
