Just joined, and not sure where to start, so I guess an introduction is as good as any yeah? My name is jen, I am 46, partnered, and have four children. 14yo boy, 13yo boy, 12yo boy, and a 10 year old girl at the end. My second son is what brought me here.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
