Hi Everyone, welcome to my page. 2013 was an amazing year. My baby, yes the one to the left turn 13. He says "I will forever look down at you." You have got to love teenagers. Last year my grandmother who I am very close to and one of my biggest supporters moved to my Aunt's home 3 hours away(stressor). I went back to school. I am working on my A.S. and transfering in to the Enviromental Natural Resourses Program at Ohio State next year. This is good and bad, Good because I am envolved with something and adults (mostly dumb teenagers that are stuck in there own little world, totally oblivious to anything around them). The ones that are not like that blow my mind of the array of intrests and opinions. The bad thing about college is I get up at 5 am rush around in mom mode + student mode. Drive an hour, walk from car to class from class to class to (repeat)class to car to drive home an hour, mom mode, help with homework, activites, cook dinner. Do my chores, do my homework,11 pm news, crash. Next day Study and home work, clean house errands nexy day. Back to school the next, As the semester went on the stress got worse and On Dec 4th my first day on break, I step on the scale and I have gained 30 lbs. I have worked way to hard in the past few years for this. Good news is I have lost 4/5 lbs since then. I have the activity tracker on it's way and 2014 is going to be my year!

    I am in Ohio and was just in Columbus last week to hear a Dr. from California give a talk on Nutrition.
    I am about 2 hours away but can be here for support ;-)

    I do make it to Columbus far from there are you?
