Introducing "Healthin' Ourselves"!!

Hey everyone!!! Welcome to our brand new blog "Healthin' Ourselves"!! We are SoOo excited to be starting down this road together, and even more excited about sharing it with you!!! Let's start with some introductions, shall we?

Who are we??

Hi, I'm Ashley! I am Mommy to 2 beautiful, crazy, energetic little boys. I love Jesus and my family more than anything. I wanted to start this blog to help hold myself accountable and maybe help others stay on track! (There's strength in numbers, right??!) I want to teach my boys to make good and healthy choices and what better way then to lead by EXAMPLE!! I'm so excited to be starting this journey with my best friend, Holly...and you! 

I'm Holly! I'm a stay at home mommy of two sweet little girls and I run a small daycare. I home school my girls and also my preschool age daycare kIdDoS. My life pretty much revolves around serving the Lord, and being a good wife and mother. I'm doing this because the thought of having to tell my kids or husband "No, we can't do that because I'm physically unable to" is depressing, and I know I'll end up there if I don't turn things around now. I want my kids to grow up knowing what healthy is, and living that lifestyle. I want to look better, feel better and have more *EnErGy*! No more squeezing into a pair of jeans that are a size too small because I refuse to admit that I need to go up one more size!

What's our purpose for this blog?
We're starting a weight-loss journey! This is going to be a place we can be held accountable, and talk to you about our ups and downs. We hope to encourage you, as well as be encouraged by you!

What kinds of things will we be posting?
A little bit of everything and pretty often!! From recipes for quick healthy dinners, to weighing-in. From struggles with the kiddos, to the creepy guy across the ally who digs in the dumpsters. From what we did at the gym today, to how awful it was that we skipped breakfast this morning.

You name it, we'll blog it!

How can we do this together?
Like us on Facebook to join a group and weigh-in! Share your own recipes, tips and tricks with the rest of us! Comment often and let us know how you're doing!
