Hey guys! I know it has been a few days since I wrote on my blog. I was just so amazed and blessed to see all the wonderful comments and all the shares, that I relished in the awesomeness for a while. It took a lot for me to publish something so personal and vulnerable and I’m so elated that it had such a positive impact on so many people.
I had a lot of comments regarding workouts and not having enough time to squeeze them in. As a Mama, wife and full-time employee I totally understand this and can relate to never having enough time to do anything. My advice, take it slow. Drink plenty of water, start changing up your eating habits, take the stairs instead of the elevator, take a walk when you get home, or just tend a garden. Anything to get you out and up and doing something physically active. Once you get ready to tackle an at home workout you can do something like:
30 body squats- 10 push ups- 20 lunges- 10 opposite arm & leg lift – 15 second plank- 30 jumping jacks after you are done STRETCH! Do this 2 to 3 days a week. Or you can Google at home workouts there are plenty of ideas to choose from. Once you build up some confidence you can start challenging yourself to join the gym or take some fitness classes.
Good luck and thanks for continuing to follow my journey! Love to All!

Hi, I am Kristi, I'm a mother, wife, full time job holder and a runner. My story with running and exercise starts in 2008 when a friend convinced me to go running as a means to lose a few pesky pounds. I did and I hated every minute of it but I stuck with it and started seeing some change in my appearance. Slowly my love-hate relationship with running became something I treasured and actually looked foward too.
Soon after I met my sweet husband and a few years later I was pregnant. My journey with running had continued and grown and even ventured out into other facets of excersie. I was determined to stay active and healthy in my pregnancy and took all the necessary precautions to make this possible. I ate lean meats, excersied everyday, continued to run until I was in my second trimester (it became uncomfortable for me) and gained only the recommended 30 pounds. However as life does occasionally she threw me a curve ball. In my last trimester I had problems with blood pressure and subsequently was bed ridden and hospitalized for the remainder of my pregnancy. My sweet love was born healthy and happy and is a very much okay today.
My world was on a whirlwind disaster coaster for over two years and in the midst of my choas I gained an additional 20 pounds, struggled with my postpartum depression, and almost lost my sweet family.
Luckily for me I began to get a grip on my fading sanity and started turning my tumultuous life right side up. I have slowly began becoming the person I was in 2008 and loving my life once again.
This is my journey to a fit life and lifestyle. My rode to running again and hopefully we be of some help for others struggling.
