I am a wife, proud mother of a baby girl, and a women on a mission-to-get-her-body back.

For the nine months Alivia was growing inside me I did some massive growing myself. I gained nearly 60lbs pounds while I was pregnant. Walking onto the labor and delivery floor on April 3rd I weighed in at a whopping 201lbs. For those of you thinking: Oh my goodness.. that's a lot of weight to gain for one baby! Believe me I was thinking the same thing. Luckily 30lbs was water weight that came off within the first two weeks of meeting my baby girl.

Six weeks after that on May 17th I began my journey weighing in at 169lbs. That morning I laced up my running shoes, and hit the pavement. Walking way more than I ran, I finished my first two miles as a mom, stroller and all.

Two weeks into my journey I can say: it is a daily choice to get moving. It is a hard and slow process that I wish I could speed up, but I can't.

There is no room for excuses. You can do it. I can do it. My goal is to be  a happier, healthier wife, mother, and a women who got her body back (and then some). My goal is to weigh 135lbs and to finish a marathon within a year of Alivia's birth.

I am here to tell you, it is not about how fast you are or how far you go. The most important thing is putting one foot in front of the other and giving it your all.
