mom. wife. friend. cook. maid . fashionista. coffee swiller. snark extraordinaire. chaos in a skirt.

I have been clicking that edit button for week now trying to decide what to put here in my introduction. I have so much to say that I am not sure what to say...

The basic story is that I am busy mom of 4 children. In moments of insanity I wish I had one more. I work in Social Services and it is very frustrating and rewarding.

I have been a member of SparkPeople since 2006 but have only been truly active the past month. My decision to truly commit stems from just tired of feeling to bad about myself. I have terrible self esteem and I hope that confidence is what I gain in this journey. I am extremely hard on myself. I have spent the past few years taking excellent care of my family and not myself.

I am working on me and have decided that in order to be the best mom to my children I have to take care of myself and love myself too.

Physically I hope to lose at least 50 pounds and look and FEEL good.

Member Since: 4/5/2006

Fitness Minutes: 2,047

My Goals:
-to lose about 50 pounds
-to be healthier
-to be confident and feel good about myself!

My self esteem is at an all time low and just want to feel good.

My Program:
Just trying to make good choices. I acutally have a pretty clean diet overall...I just have issues with portion sizes. I am trying to work in that.

I workout at least 5 days a week. I walk 2 times a day at work and hit the gym for some cardio 5-6 days a week. I also strength train 3 days a week. I use the strength training program outlined in, The New Rules of Weightlifting for Women.

Personal Information:
I am mom to 4. I work full time inside and outside the home. I live in the Southwest.

    Congratulations for finding the time to take care of you along with an outside job and four kids. I had four and a job, so I know how hard that is--I didn't find time until the kids grew up and I quit the job!

    It's so important for kids to see positive role models in their parents, including on the self-esteem front. Kudos for tackling that. You should be proud of yourself. emoticon

    Strawberries are Packed with Vitamins and Minerals

    Rounding out the roster of beneficial vitamins and minerals of note are B2, B5, B6, vitamin K, copper, and magnesium. Strawberries also contain omega fatty acids. All of this goodness is available to you at a cost of 45 calories for about seven medium strawberries. And not only that, but the fiber in strawberries, about 12% of your RDA per serving, helps your body absorb nutrients, inhibits the production of cholesterol in your liver, and helps stabilize your blood glucose.

    They are yummy!
