Hello from the Pacific Northwest

Hi my name is Kamaile and I live in Portland, Oregon. I am mother to 3 crazy monkeys (4, 2 and almost 1) and wife to one wonderful man.

A little over a year ago I was pregnant with number 3 and thought it was time for me to get in shape and get my act together, I told myself that after I have the baby I was going to get myself in shape to run a 5k. I found the Couch to 5k program, started working out and signed myself up for my first 5k on the 4th of July, in Provo. Well, I finished my first 5k and now I am ready for a new challenge, I am planning on running a Ragnar in July and I need a change from my regular routine of running and cross-training and I need to get my whole self put together. I love how this challenge is not just about eating right and getting your body in shape, but also about getting your mind and spiritual aspect of your life in order.

Thank you for putting this together and I can't wait to get to know you all better. Good luck to all and can't wait to hear how everyone is doing.

I'm JO!

I'm Jo and I am pregnant with my 3rd girl. :) I have been super busy with being a mommy and a student. I am wanting to do this challenge because I have never before been craving this much junk food with my last two pregnancies. I feel a constant need to eat and don't crave the healthy stuff! I'm hoping that this challenge will help me to keep my food choices under control. I did Cassidy's challenge when I was pregnant with my last daughter and it helped me tons! I can't keep gaining weight at the rate that I am or I will have gained more this pregnancy than with my last two.

I have tried to start all the goals on my own without the challenge but i have realized that without the group support and the competition I can't resist the junk food. This is my biggest weakness right now and I need a serious challenge to get me back on track. Hopefully more people will join soon. I would love to start!!! :)

Hi Everyone!

My name is Hannah. I live in San Tan Valley, Az. This is the most recent picture of my husband and I. I really hesitated to put it up, because I hate pictures of myself. My face is especially swollen that day due to eating food that I know I'm intolerant to. It's so difficult to stay away from things you've always thought were healthy for you before! My most difficult foods to stay away from that I am intolerant to is dairy (I've always loved cheese), black pepper (its on everything!) and gluten. The other 30 items I've been able to avoid pretty easily. I'm excited to start the challenge- I could really use some direction in my life and something I can take control of. It'll  be great to have the accountability that comes with doing this challenge as well, and since losing both of my jobs as a dental hygienist, I have been blogging a lot- so you'll probably be hearing a lot from me! I hope you join us!

Hi Ladies!

This is perfect timing for a new challenge! Now that my baby is almost 12 weeks old, I am ready to begin again. I love having each other for support (and healthy competition) ;) Crazy how one year ago, i just found out i was pregnant, and was living in our home away from home. Hawaii. Now that I am in Arizona, I would love to do a girls activity with anyone part of this group. Anyone up for some Line Dancing at a local restaurant? who said you couldnt be active and still have fun. Cant wait to begin!
