I wanted to start a blog to explain the journey that I have recently undertaken. I am a mother of two amazing sons and I have decided back in December of 2012 to make some huge changes for myself and my children. I stopped smoking, I stopped drinking and I started the journey to getting right with God and being healthy. I realized very quickly that I am underweight and that I am not overally healthy though i eat a really healthy diet I don't eat enough calories in a day for how busy and active I am. This has been a huge change. It is really hard to force feed myself food and I can't not be busy lol...    I have made some nice changes for my sons also. We now read stories every night. In additon we have done a good size garden every year but this year now that they are 9 and 3 we are going really big and they each have had some input into what they would like to grow. I can as much as I can from the garden every year and my 3 year old son has requested a large section of cucumbers so that mommy makes more homemade pickles and my older son has asked that we do more green peppers and green beans.  In additon i want to do cabbage, potatos, cauliflower again and lots more.  

I also wanted to throw one last side not into this I have always made all our meals and this has not changed but in addition I am working on creating more homemade goods including breads etc and using whole flours etc and beans and such and introducing more new foods to the boys and me. I also work forty hours a week and have lots of other stuff to do do you see where i can't stop but need to eat more to equal the calories that I burn lol this is the hard part most days i find that i am still over a thousand calories short as the exercise that i do keeps setting me back but its hard to not exericise in a day that is as full as mine.. lol
