Let me introduce myself…
I’m Mainer Chick (Tracie). I’m a mother of two teens. An artist, photographer, and writer or inspiring to be. A State employee.
This blog is following my journey to wellness. First inspired over a year ago, The Beginning. I started making small changes to my diet, cutting out soda mostly and not eating boxed foods or fast foods all the time. These little things have made a difference. When I got my dog back I was walking her 3 times a day about a mile each time. But I had to put her down in April, I miss her a lot. I now need to get back on track and get my butt moving as well as eat healthier.
I am Laurie (lalalosingit). My ultimate goal is to lose weight, but at times feel like I am losing my mind in the process 🙂
I like to challenge myself physically and try to make things fun. I joined ME FIRST with Tracie this past year and have lost about 18 pounds so far. The program has encouraged me to “push the envelope” a bit. I signed up for swimming lessons a few weeks ago, I will be running my first ½ marathon this Saturday, I will be participating in my first mud run April 28, and I will swim in a triathlon in July.
As far as nutrition goes . . . I am trying to plan my meals and omit processed foods as much as possible.
