About Me

Welcome to my journey blog! I am calling it that because that is what I am on, now more than ever before. My journey is to find out who I really am, to be happy with who I am, and to find my path.
From the outside I am a mama to two beautiful, fun, yet sometimes exasperating children. Olivia (11) and Owen (7). I am a wife to a hardworking man, Mike, who I love and have loved for more than half my life! I am a stay at home mom, but worked on the clerical side of healthcare before having children. I love to read, scrapbook, decorate, DIY projects (I get all my inspiration from Pinterest), anything crafty, organize (but I have a hard time staying that way), I am a planner (nothing makes me happier than planning a party) and spending time with family and friends. I am happy, love to have fun and am truly blessed in so many ways.
On the inside, I struggle. I struggle with body image, my faith and where it belongs, being a good mom and wife. I have been told quite often how people like that I am REAL, and one of my biggest pet peeves is people that are not. Life is not always peaches n' cream and I won't try to convince you that it is.
My hope for this blog is that I can journal my journey for myself and also for anyone else who can relate to all the normal things I go through. I will blog about health and fitness as I take my journey to get to a healthy weight for myself as well as to set a good example for my children. I will blog about the steps I am going take to find a religious community that works for me. I will blog about my parenting struggles and things that are working or not. I will blog about budgeting as I try to create a budget that works for our family to reach our goals.
I am looking forward to taking this journey with some new friends. Keep me accountable and I will KEEP IT REAL!!

  1. Hi Sandy,

    My husband and I have read the choose 2 lose book and had begun the program before Christmas. After a short hiatus we decided it was time to jump back in and I was searching for more resources to keep us motivated. I stumbled on your site and the similarities are just eerie... My husband and I have been married 10 years, together 18. I'll be turning 35 in March wanting to shed the same amount of weight... We have a 7 year old girl and a 4 year old boy... It was like reading our story. :) Thanks for sharing your story, the struggles, the goals and for motivating us to do the same!

  2. I've been following along... It's really helpful to read the trials and tribulations of other families. Makes you realize that you aren't alone. :) I had started a blog years ago, so I decided to revive it, to stay accountable. Come visit if you'd like: chasingmunchkins.blogspot.ca Tomorrow is weigh in for me. After the effort in meal prep and commitment to the program I really hope I see results. :) Have a great Wednesday!
