As you may well have gathered, I'm a mom, writer and wanna-be farmer. When not at my day job as a full-time financial systems analyst, my husband and I can be found in the dust of my whirlwind three year old daughter on our Homestead in western New Hampshire, working on the farm and growing a freelance writing business.
My daily routine is the same as most - wake my daughter, feed the family and pets (a high strung cattle dog and large orange cat), tend livestock (20+ chickens, a growing turkey flock, meat birds, pigs) and arrive at work relatively on time. Somewhere in the midst of the morning madness includes packing a gym bag, lunches and managing to clothe myself!
As with many moms, I'm constantly refining the balance between work, family, chores and time for myself (did I mention I like long-distance running and multi-sport races)?
I like to cook my own food (usually healthy) and grow my own meat and vegetables (as much as possible). I also really enjoy eating the food I've made, so it's a blasted good thing I like to exercise too!
Enough about me. Let's talk about youand what youwill find here:
Fitness Ideas - of the realistic variety

Mommy Thoughts- to take with a grain of salt
