About 4.5 months ago, I got on the body fat scale and got quite the shock when I found out my body fat percent was 44% and that was after loosing 48 pounds and almost a year of working out 5 days a week.

On the way to my sisters wedding I had an amazing talk with my mom (ok not really a talk as it was mostly me blabbering and my mom supportively listening) about what I want to do with my personal training certification once its official. I have a dream and that's to help other mom's like myself gain back the confidence to look in the mirror and feel pretty, to help them have the energy to chase after their children and juggle their busy lives, to have them make a personal dream come true (like running a half marathon, or dancing, or having the confidence to take an acting class...what ever it is). I want to kick the self loathing that we all seem to lug around, and banish it to the curb! I want to get mom's to come together and show their daughters what it is like to really be a WOMAN, strong, fit, sexy and confident. I have some ideas, some of them a little whacky just like you would expect from me! So stay tuned because I'm about to get our jiggly bits shaking!
