Hello,
I am a stay at home mom of three wonderful little ones and at first being at home seemed more of a privilege, because not many people have the support needed to be home with their kids. Fast forward a year and 70lbs later, I'm feeling not only trapped at home but in a body that makes me not even want to get up in the mornings. I know its time for a chance but am unsure of where to begin. Two of my little ones I'm home with daily and going to a gym would include them and knowing my kids a real distraction lol. Not only that with my husband being the primary provider the expense of a gym or trainer is almost out of the question. If anyone has any suggestions for me on how to get back to a healthy, motivated and energetic life I'm all ears. I don't want to give up and putting on a persona of happy mommy happy wife is beginning to weigh heavy and start to reveal how I really feel. Help and thanks

If a gym is really not in the budget, I understand. If you can swing it (many offer discounts, or three month memberships) you may want to give it a try. Many gyms have free child care, so you can drop them and go walk the treadmill for 45 minutes, shower and feel human again. IMO you sound a bit depressed so talk that over with your healthcare provider. Do you have a friend that you can walk with outside? Fresh air is good for you and the kids. Clear out the pantry of refined sugar and flour, you will be shocked at how you feel just eliminating those two ingredients from your diet.

Hi Sarah, hope all is well with you today. OK I signed in and went to my setting but I didn't see where or how to send PM. I hope this doesn't stop us from communicating. I could give you my personal email if we can't figure this out. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Sarah,
I see your message but im not sure what PM means. Call me a little old fashion but you will have to tell me what it means. Waiting to hear back from you.

Amanda, for some reason I cannot PM you, can you message me? Maybe we can hold each other accountable?
