I am an artist of all kinds from Photography, to printmaking, Drawing and painting to graphic and web design. I can deveope simple we sites, more for informational content (Like mine).
I have a wonderful husband of 2 years who came with a wonderful son who is now 9. I have 2 cats (Nessie and Shazmieka) and a large puppy (11 months old at almost 80 pounds) named Bubba-Loo. He is a black lab.
I do freelance designs and wedding and portrait photos. Check out my site to find out more. I will get more info about myself soon.
So I used to be an avid exerciser, I loved working out. I had been a dancer of ballet, point ballet, tap, jazz, modern for 15 years. I got to college and started working out daily. I got to the point where I worked out 6 days a week with an optional 7th day of either rest or an extra workout. I started running 30 minutes a day PLUS 30 minutes of precore (or weight lifiting on opposite days) PLUS 30 minutes of ab work and then 15-20 minutes of stretching. I loved it all. I felt great, I felt liked I looked good, even at 165, I had a higher muscle mass and new I was ok at that weight.
Then I graduated from college and lost a cheep workout place. I was not that into the Videos but I did some of them when I could. I changed my daily structure and lost my workouts from working add shifts.
But then I met my husband. He had a son so I ended up hanging out with them a lot. I did not just have one person to get to know but 2 people (he was 5.5 at the time).
We soon got married and I went Back to school online for graphic design (a computer job...not what I wanted but it would be a job). I sat more, became less active and we eat out a lot due to that fact we were always in a rush, trying to find a house for us (and get out of my mother in laws house). Once we found one we had to fix it up and that took 3 months. It was a foreclosure and a major fixer upper. We are still in the process but at first it was not livable at all.
But my husband and I got married twice, first one was the justisce of the peace for every one involved. Then we could in a relaxed way plan the large wedding. So with fixing up the house, my second bout of schooling, learning to be a mom, and the house work and wedding plannings, I had no time for me and my workouts. I packed on 40 pounds.
Now I am here to lose that 40 plus another 20, total of 60. My weight right now is at 205 (I started at 215) and I want my end weight to be about 150-155. I have a larger frame, broad shoulders, could not even think what I would look like at the weight the standards say. They say I am to be between 125-145. I will work towards 150. Besides my husband likes the fuller look, not the model look. I am so thankful for that too.
