I had my 5th boy on Feb 2nd and decided to spend my 3 months home soaking him up! I managed to keep my pregnancy weight gain to under 25 pounds and considering my 'little' boy weighed 9lb 10oz I'd say that's pretty good!
I am now back to work full time and with work, 5 boys, sports and life, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things regarding working out and better nutrition. I spent the summer doing Bikini Body Mommy 1.0 along with walking. In September I started BBM 2.0 and the 6 week mini challenge.

The end of 2015 had me finishing 2.0 and starting 3.0. I'm also doing 2 different Biggest Loser challenges here on Spark along with walking when weather permits.

I'm doing mostly clean eating- some days Whole30, some days Paleo, some days neither!! I'm still working on my nutrition.

Update 6/1/16: Still powering through with family life and working out. I started BBM 5.0 on 5/16/16. Still working on my nutrition, which is the biggest hurdle for me.
