I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

My body,One Year Postpartum

Today is the day! Audrey and I are officially One Year Postpartum!


It has been a long year for me. Having the fourth baby was a struggle for me. Learning how to juggle all four while homeschooling,taking care of a farm, and finding enough time to take care of myself has not been easy. I am optimistic that things can only get better from here.

I am back to my pre -pregnancy weight and size. Just a little older,saggier and wrinklier. Breastfeeding, eating the right amount of food, eating REAL food, running and getting enough sleep have been my secret.

I do admit that my body could use a little ab work out and pretty much the rest of me could use a little firming up, but that is nothing a little Yoga once or twice a week can't cure. I just need to do it.

Overall I'm happy with my 'size'. But again, like I've said many a time before....it ain't the size that matters it is how you look naked ;)

So here are my final accountability pictures. I'm wearing a baggy shirt, but I think they show what I look like.

Yes I'm wearing orange crocs. They are my indoor shoes as walking on hardwood all day hurts my feet. I've only worn them out in public once....by accident and Oh My!! they did NOT go with my outfit...and I was downtown...in a really nice dress....It was sooo embarassing. I would not have noticed unless my Dad had not pointed out that he really loved my shoes. I'm not sure which is worse. My fashion sense or his ;)


That is my butt. Or NO BUTT as my husband likes to call me. I know...nice husband. I am not sure if my lack of rear end comes from running or aging or both. Whatever, like I said. Yoga may have to come into my routine soon. Maybe sooner than later.
That's it. Now I'm off to eat cake.

Don't you just hate all the SPAM??? Why don't you turn your comment approval back on, Aly??
