New Kid on the Block

My name is Jennifer Kay.  I was introduced to this blog by my great friend Marci Green.  I'm excited to join the challenge and start making better eating choices.

I have a 2 year old son named Logan.  He's by far the funniest kid I've come into contact with.  Nathan and I have been married 7 years.  I can't imagine life without my guys.

I am a stay-at-home mom and working artist.  If you are interested in seeing my art feel free at ArtMommy

I guess it's accurate to say that I've always struggled with weight and acceptance of my body.  My food consumption role models growing up were either my two insatiable brothers or my mother who ate like a bird during meals but horded chocolate and diet coke under her bed.  I chose the former.  Even though my eating habits were far from stellar, I exercised quite often and never really considered changing.

Now my body feels a bit foreign to me.  Pregnancy has left it's mark and the general stresses of life have made food my number one comfort.  I'm ready for a change not only of eating habits but of attitude.  I'd like to start treating my body like the miracle it is.  And I'm hoping this challenge will help me get there.

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!

  5. Jennifer-

    I can't even tell you how excited I am to have you join us. I, too, only know Marci on this blog, but I have learned to love each one of these women. They are amazing. I am inspired daily. You are not alone in your struggles and it will be so fun to be with you on your journey. WELCOME!

  6. Yay, can I just tell you how excited I was to open up this blog and see your post! I was already pumped to start this journey, but having my old workout buddy and friend along too just makes it that much sweeter. Now if only we could figure out a way to live a little closer so we could workout again. Best of Luck!


  7. Yeah! Great getting to read about you and see your wonderful art work. Sounds like you've got a great attitude. That will help you tons!

  8. Jennifer- I understand about your body feeling foreign. I felt that way after my first pregnancy, too. Happily, it feels that way again since I joined this blog, but in a good way!
