**My 86 1/2 year old Granny who is heatlhy as a horse and as active as can be. She has been such a GREAT example to me that you can be active no matter what your age. She started walking 5 days a week when she retired around 30 years ago and still walks 2 miles every morning with her good friend. Another example of how being consistent (for years) pays off!!!!!!**

stomach was not feeling so well on the way home
and I was soooo tired

realized that I hadn’t even paid attention to my water intake today (and would have helped with snackin earlier!!) so I downed 2 of these bottles on the drive home. 😉

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
