I, like many women, gained a lot of weight during pregnancy, 30lbs the first time and 60lbs the second time. I started blogging in 2009 after stumbling upon Kath's blog. I lost the first 30lbs by reading her blog, adding veggies to my meals, and running occasionally. The 60lbs I gained with my son has been difficult to lose.

This time around I've focused more on a life change instead of trying to lose weight. I've added more weight training and switched my diet to paleo. I try to eat paleo 90% of the time. No our kids do not eat paleo. I feel like I don't have enough knowledge to feed them paleo. I can experiment on my own body and tell you how I feel about certain things. My kids can't. Plus they won't eat a lot of meat for me anyways so it would be a serious struggle that I'm not ready to deal with right now. Maybe when they are older. Head over here if you want to see what they eat.
Squirrel is cautious, bossy, and very intelligent. She eats healthy food but it's very limited. She is constantly asking me what is healthy and what isn't. She's a little sponge wanting to learn about everything.

Little buddy or LB is fearless and spirited. He's the life of the party in every situation and gives me a run for my money every single day.
