Hi, welcome to The Fit Housewife!

A little more about me…

My name is Jen, and I’m a happily married, work-at-home mom with 3 little boys.

But I wasn’t always this way.  After having my 2nd child, I was depressed and 90 pounds overweight.  Just walking up a flight of stairs exhausted me!  I was tired of struggling with my weight and feeling tired all the time, and I was ready for a change.  However, I got pregnant with our third child, and I didn’t have any energy, time or money to join a gym.  After giving birth to my third son, I knew I needed a change, but the last thing I wanted to do was drag 3 kids under 2-1 /2 to a busy gym.  This is when a friend introduced me to Beachbody at-home workouts.

The first workout I ordered was ChaLEAN Extreme.  Immediately, I fell in love with this workout.  Not only did it challenge me in ways I’ve never been challenged, but it didn’t require more than 40 minutes of my time.  In 90 days, I completely changed my body and eventually,  I lost ALL the weight and went from a size 16 to a size 4.  If you had asked me 10 years ago if I thought I would ever be a size 4, I would have laughed in your face.  I thought I was destined to be a size 12+ all my life.  But adding strength and cardio to my daily routine changed that!  I even made it into the ChaLEAN Extreme infomercial!!  Here are my results:

Over the past couple of years, I’ve added more programs to my library and have increased my cardio endurance as well as my overall strength.  But exercise is only a small part of the equation.  You know that saying, “Abs are made in the kitchen!”…well, it’s so true.  By completely changing my bad eating habits, I’ve been able to eat healthier, gain more energy, and see my abs again!

I’ve learned so much over the past few years which is why I wanted to start this blog, The Fit Housewife.  I want to share my success story with you.  I want to share how I exercise and eat right.  I want to share our family’s favorite healthy recipes so that you can feed your family healthy food as well as give yourself the body you deserve…all without sacrificing flavor!

And of course, I still like to bake some “healthier” treats because we all deserve a treat once in a while…

Fitness and healthy eating has become a huge part of my life and has changed my life completely.  I look forward to my at-home workouts every single day, which I never thought was possible!

Since changing my life through healthy eating and fitness, I wanted to pay it forward and become a Beachbody coach.  I get to motivate and inspire others to feel and look their best every single day.  With my business I have a team that I work with and we host fitness challenges, clubs and programs to help our family, friends and neighbors work toward a healthier community.  I would love nothing more than to help you along the path to your freedom. It IS there…just waiting for you to grab it.

I am blessed to be able to work for myself, be a stay at home mom/wife and do what I truly love and to work with some pretty amazing people.

So come take a look around.  I’m sure you will find some delicious recipes, healthy treats, and some nutrition and fitness tips to help you along your healthy living journey!
