Hello, world! I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Shauna. I am 28 and working toward a new healthier life. I am married and we have one son and one daughter. My son is already in school and my daughter was just born this past April. I am a student myself about to enter the second semester of my senior year at a local university. I am majoring in elementary education…I can’t wait to get out in the work force!
A little bit of randomness about me:
I love to read. I don’t like pets, although when they are little babies I love them until they pee on the floor. I grew up in the country where you had to drive 15 minutes one way to get to any decent store. I have been going to college it seems like forever. I have a drafting and design degree that I have never gotten to use. I love flip-flops. I love coffee with flavored creamers. I don’t like wearing bug spray, but I have to because I am a mosquito magnet. I used to like to go camping, but that changed when I had children. My front yard is just dirt because we have so many trees the grass cannot grow. It doesn’t bother me since we don’t have to mow it. I actually don’t mind mowing grass, but our lawn mower doesn’t work anyway so we have to pay someone to do it. I love spending time with my hubby on the weekends. I am addicted to my computer. I hate washing dishes and ironing clothes. I own 2 hermit crabs that never come out in the daytime. It’s almost like they don’t exist.
I thought I should add the reason I’m getting healthy:
I have reached this new frame of mind and I know I am so worth getting healthy. Not just for other people, but for myself. So I can do the things that I want to do…ride a bike, hike, go kayaking, and maybe even run a half-marathon! I don’t know about the running part, but it would be nice to be able to do the half-marathon without sore feet and legs and being out of breath. I also think losing the weight will help me want to play with my kids. I just can’t get up and down off the floor without hurting or getting out of breath and I definitely can’t run around with them without feeling like I’m going to pass out. So, yes, it’s time to get healthy — for my kids, for my husband, and most importantly, for me!
