One Healthy Mom

Finding Balance Between Fitness, Family, and Food

About Me

About the Blog:

This blog started as a place to share my fitness journey (the struggles and triumphs) as well as healthy meals and tips.  It is challenging to be a mom of three and finding time to eat healthy and workout, but it is possible and addicting!

About the Blogger:

I’m a stay at home mom with 3 beautiful children under the age of 7.   I hadn’t always been interested in fitness.  In fact, I was the person who stayed far away from physical activity most of my life!!

After my third was born, I was the heaviest I have ever been and had a low self-esteem.  I decided to take charge of my life once again and lose the weight that I gained with my pregnancies.  Since my youngest was only 3 months old and were living off of one income, I was unable to join a gym.  I looked for online programs and found Turbo Fire.   I started on my birthday and felt results within weeks.  I was finally breaking my old habits and starting new ones!  It was then that I fell in love with fitness.  I felt so much better about myself as a person and started to be confident in my own skin for the first time in my life!

Fitness:

For the first year of my fitness journey, I was a cardio bunny!  I loved cardio and hated weightlifting.  Two weeks into my second Insanity round, I had to have an emergency surgery on my appendix.  I was unable to do any type of cardio due to the surgery  so I started lifting weights.   And started to love weightlifting!  Lifting heavy really was changing my body!!

I am currently completing my first round of Body Beast!
