I am a wife to hubby and mommy to 3 sweet kiddos. Katy Reid 8, Max 6, and Parker Jane, 2! I love God and all that he has blessed me with! I believe he has called us here for great purpose, and he wants us to find our passion in life and use it for his glory.
As a preteen I started to gain weight and through my high school years never really understood how or why I should take care of my body. I struggled with self confidence and food became my friend through my struggles. College came and I did a lot of eating through nursing school. It was a stressful time and I always felt like I didn’t have the resources or time to manage my health. Looking back I used that as an excuse not to take better care of myself. And then I met and married my best friend.
When Ronnie and I got married we had no idea the path that we were starting. We were both in the overweight/obese category. We tried different plans, and sometimes lost weight but couldn’t keep it off consistently. We yo- yo dieted a lot. 2 years ago, my husband started insanity while I was pregnant with our 3rd child. It brought him the results he had been looking for. After I had our baby, saw how much better he felt, and the energy he was having in result to his hard work I joined him. I started seeing results and loved the convenience of working out at home, in my living room, and around the schedule of my young kiddos!! I was making time for me by exercising and learning how to eat better. I lost 30 pounds with insanity. But after I stopped nursing the baby, I couldn’t get my eating under control and maintained my weight. I was still working out, but frustrated that I gave into my junk food cravings.
I then started using T25 and became more disciplined with my nutrition.
So now I am on a journey to help others meet goals like this in their life. Most of the time getting healthy and exercising will improve all the areas of your life. Working out has made me more productive and efficient. I also have lot more confidence in what my body is capable of. Taking care of myself in turn helps me take care of the little people under me.
It has also given my husband and I something that we really enjoy doing together, and we love chasing our kids now! We can actually keep up!
Here is a picture of my husband and I before we took control of our health, and a picture of us now!
Please feel free to find me on social media (via my social media tabs on my home page) and we can connect. I really enjoy meeting new people, hearing about their health situation, and how I might be able to help them overcome struggles with maintaining health, fitness, and balance in nutrition! God has helped my find victory in my health and I want to be His vessel in using my story for His glory. You can email me at email@example.com
