Time to introduce myself, and why health and fitness is so important to me.

This whole blogging thing is new to me, but I thought I would throw my hat in the ring and give it a whirl.

I am a Mom of 3, accountant by day, with a real passion for staying fit and active in my everyday life.  Much of my outlook has been influenced by events I experienced in my life.  I lost my wonderful Father when I was 3 years old to heart disease.  I have had difficulties staying in shape especially after having children with the time demands of motherhood.  Since my family and I have lived in Buffalo, NY, it is necessary for me to make the time.  It helps me cope with the blues that can be truly debilitating given the long drawn out winters here.  Once I get pumped up from exercise, I have much more energy and I really do feel stronger physically as well as mentally.  Exercise to me is more exhilirating and addictive than any drug.

I am hoping that by writing this blog, I can share my experiences with others who understand all too well the challenges of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  I also believe that you will reap the benefits that you sow.  It is truly worth the effort in terms of how much better you will feel by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine.
