    • On Thursday, I weighed 141 pounds even and things were looking up!
    • On Thursday night, both Matthew and I were throwing up sick… Awful
    • My stomach never recovered fully until just this morning, so I skipped 2 days of exercise to rebound from being so sick
    • Sunday-Tuesday all included exercise so I’m back on the horse (until right now because my kid is refusing to nap (holy hell!))
    • Ending a light exercise week with a 0.4 pound loss feels good, and dropping body fat feels even better. I’ll take it!
    • I am on track to hit my goal weight of 140.8 pounds and have achieved my body fat goal (for now – it could change!)
    • I’ve got to get back into strength training – will start tomorrow morning at the Y!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!
