My Journey Begins.

My name is Kathy.  I am your typical 30-something woman living in the Midwest trying to balance a busy life.  I am married to my best friend who I met while in college at Ohio University.  We live in Columbus,Ohio with our wonderful, adorable Havanese puppy named Crosby, and the most amazing, equally adorable toddler, Sebastian.  I have a fun and somewhat stressful job that keeps me busy 50+ hours out of the week.  So as a lot of people do, I fell into the “I’m too busy to eat healthy or work out” trend. 


As my title suggests, after a bad day, weekend, week, month ( I think you get the idea) of eating badly, I often say ” I will start my diet tomorrow” or “Tomorrow I will work out”.  And inevitably, tomorrow never comes.  This is my journey to stop the cycle of unhealthy behavior and get my life, mind, and body back on track.  But first, how did I get here?

Where do I start?

For most of my childhood, I struggled with my weight.  I was the middle child of three and had siblings that were naturally skinny.  I have always had to work at being skinny or even average for that matter.  Once I went to college, the situation only got worse, I quickly added the freshman 15, or maybe 20?


After I graduated from college, I moved to the big city, Chicago.  I immersed myself in city life, walking everywhere, and living on my own.  The weight seemed to melt away during this time, and for once in my life I loved the way I looked.  I managed to keep the weight off too!


And then, the most amazing thing happened.  I had my son, Sebastian.  While, he has been the best thing to happen to me, my body has not quite recovered.  It has been a year and a half and I am still carrying around about 20 pounds more than I once did. 

This blog will serve as my accountability partner.  It will be a diary of my food choices, work outs, and life in between.  Thank you for joining me on this journey!
