Easter Sunday…Family Blessings

Today is my favorite holiday of the year.

I love celebrating such a happy ending to the Greatest Story Ever Told!

Also, it’s Spring, and the beginning of a whole new season of excitement!

We had my brother and his girlfriend as well as my mom over for dinner today. We served early as my brother is a season ticket holder for the Chicago Blackhawks, and needed to get back into the city for the game.

What a great meal we had. My hubby made a rack of lamb that just looked fabulous. I discreetly ate my naked chicken cutlets (meatless).

I reflect today on all the things I am grateful for….and here in this picture are many of the biggies. I’m so grateful for my hubby and Anthony. They are my pillars of motivation. I push to reach my goals because of them!

2 years ago at this point, I was going back to work tomorrow to finish out my contract after my maternity leave was over. I loved being a teacher, but really wanted to be a stay at home mom. I remember how nervous I was to go back. I didn’t want to leave Anthony!

I reflect back and am really thankful for my husband giving me the gift to be a stay at home mom. I’m also thankful for him being so supportive of me running with what I enjoy as I run my at home business. Best of both worlds; helping others stay healthy and being home to raise our Anthony.

What are you thankful for today?

Welcome!

Welcome to my page!

I was a tumblr gal, but realized that Word Press would better suite me. I appreciate you following me over here!

I’ve been married to my husband for almost 5 years and right now we have 1 two-year old son, Anthony. I am blest to be a stay at home mom working a health and fitness home business from home.

Before I had Anthony, I was an elementary school teacher. I received my masters in educational leadership, and actually served as interim principal in the fall of 2010 for the school I previously worked at while my former boss was on her maternity leave.

I like to combine the worlds of education and fitness into motherhood. I apply what I can from my classroom to my home to broaden Anthony’s horizons.

I love sharing health and fitness with others. I was a softball player in college, but the work world and grad school brought out the stress in me, and helped me stack on pounds.

After having Anthony, I decided to kick it into gear. We found out when he was 4 months old that he had many food allergies. I changed my diet, and lost 20+ pounds doing Chalean Extreme home fitness program.

I’m in better shape now than ever in my life. I am here to share my tips and strategies to help YOU combine the worlds of education and fitness as well as keep myself accountable for being healthy!

This is going to be a fabulous ride! Off we go!
