Say hello to Tracie, she was chosen by Trish for the spotlight this week! Congratulations on your awesome 5K time last week, girl! That is an awesome accomplishment!
Tell us about your family:
My husband and I have been married for 12 1/2 years. We have 2 children, Tommy 8 and Becca 3. I’m a stay-at-home mom while my husband is a locomotive engineer (fancy name for he runs trains). Tommy has high functioning autism which can be both a blessing and a challenge. My youngest, Becca, is a girly-girl through and through from pink to princesses and the whole she-bang.
What do you consider your biggest accomplishment?
Non-fitness related it is probably the steps I’ve taken with moving towards healthier eating and getting my kids to eat things they don’t even know are healthy. Tommy is pretty picky and is used to the processed crap. So when he doesn’t ask for a certain thing in a can, frozen, or boxed in a while I consider that a huge success. And with the husband anytime I can slip something by him that is whole wheat or healthier and he doesn’t know that is huge.
All of the healthy living/weight loss blogs I read. It is easier to know that there are other people living with the same daily struggles that I have.
Finally my kids. I want to set a great example for them. When my daughter fights me for my edamame I light up inside.
