Tell us about your family. My husband and I have been married for 6 years. We were blessed with an amazing daughter 2 years ago after a long battle with infertility through the miracle of adoption! Her name is Abby & she is absolutely amazing! She and my husband get me out of bed in the morning & keep fighting against illness.

What is your favorite workout? I was a long distance runner in high school & kept running in college until I got sick. I would LOVE to be able to run again! Maybe this next surgery (August 12th) will be the key to me lacing up my running shoes again!

What do you consider your biggest accomplishment? Becoming a mom!

Have you set any goals for this year? Get back down to my goal weight! I was there last Christmas so I want to get there again by the holidays!

Who is your best support in your healthier-living journey? The Sisterhood hands-down! Whenever I get frustrated or discouraged, there is always someone to offer support & a kind word. I would still be 30lbs heavier (or more) if it weren’t for the Sisterhood.

Favorite songs on your iPod right now? I actually just created a 90s playlist that keeps me jamming! You can’t help but bust a move when you hear some old school Will Smith! Gettin’ Jiggy anyone?

Who or what inspires you? My daughter. I have watched my parents struggle with their weight my entire life. I don’t want the same for her. I want to be a positive role model for her when it comes to making healthy food choices & staying active.

Do you have any must-have health/beauty/clothing products? Dry shampoo is the best invention ever!

Name 3 blogs you love to read! How can I pick just 3? Ok – here are 3 of my most recent finds – Biblical Homemaking, All Things Lovely, & Southern Hospitality

5 things we don’t already know about you! I am a middle child. I have 3 tattoos. I was a Music Education major in college and decided during my student teaching that I hated being in a classroom every day. My mom is my best friend (outside my husband of course).

I am going to Disney in 45 days!
