I’m Jessica- mommy, wife, blogger, full time work at home mom, graduate student, NASM certified personal trainer… & exhausted! ?
JessicaI’m still trying to get some abs, though! People think because I’m a personal trainer I should be completely ripped… no! It’s just as hard for me to do it just as anyone else. Yes, I know what needs to be done- but life gets in my way as well.
It really is hard and takes lots of commitment to be in tip top shape. I’ve had several miscarriages, a c-section and postpartum depression. So I have gone lots of times without doing hardcore workouts or even working out at all. I’ve also eaten maybe 5 jars of rocky road ice cream and one sitting- that’s life!
Anyway, I’m really just a girl trying to make life easier in todays world and hoping to help other people on the way.
I live in Chicago with my son and husband, and we’re going to start trying for another baby soon. I work full time as a manager for a beauty company and am also a NASM certified personal trainer. I’m also a graduate student majoring in exercise science.
I blog on my free time because I just love to do it, but as you can see I’m pretty swamped- so please forgive me if sometimes I go a while without posting!
My goal with my blog is to help other people. I only post recipes that are approved by myself, my husband who is the pickiest eater in the world, and my son. I also only recommend items I’ve tried and loved- I have no problem letting you know if I hated something. Furthermore, I try to keep everything simple- including DIY projects. That’s because 1) I can be pretty lazy 2) I’m realizing that I’m kind of cheap and 3) none of us really have that much time.
I’ll stop blabbing now, but I hope you enjoy my slice of the internet!
