I am Jenn. I am 32 years old, work at a major state university, am a wife to my high school sweetheart (18 years together, 13 married), mom of 3 children, a 10 year old and 7 year old twins! I am a part time graduate student studying Sociology.
I have tried many different diet approaches, and continually get discouraged when I don't see results right away, so I am trying to do better and instead of dieting, I am making healthy lifestyle changes and adding in exercise.
I use MyFitnessPal.com to track calories and exercise. I need friends on there so if you use MFP feel free to friend me. My username is LosingJenn.
This blog is a way to be accountable for my actions, and keep friends and family updated on my progress. Check out my pages links below for more about me, progress pics page, prog blog-measurements (ask for password), fitness, and recipes.
Goal Dates are subject to change depending on my progress, the dates just give me something to strive toward.

Lie on your right side with both legs bent and together and your left arm bent in front of your chest, left palm pressing into the floor in front of your right shoulder.
Bend your right arm under your left armpit and grab the outside of your left shoulder with your right hand. Tighten your abs, and exhale, pressing away from the floor, lifting your upper body off the ground with your left arm.
Bend your left elbow and lower your body back to the floor, but only until your right shoulder lightly touches the ground. Press back up. That’s one rep.
Do 10 reps with the left arm, 10 with the right.
Form tip: Don’t ‘rest’ on the floor when you lower back down. Focus on pressing up with the back of your left arm and keep your abdominals engaged the entire time.
