I am not an official step parent, but looking to become one hopefully in the near future. My bf has 3 children, the first 2's mother was murdered 5 years ago, making my bf a single dad at 25, with a 5 and 3 year old to deal with alone. He was depressed, and met his ex. She was abusive to him, was very horrible person...and they had his son, who is now almost 4. He works very hard, is amazing to me, and my children. We are excited to think about moving in together, but I am very worried. Our parenting ideas are quite different, and so are our discipline ideas. I have felt that if we can work out these issues before we move in together, there will be less to deal with. I know we will have problems, I have been the child in a similar situation. So, I have been there. It isn't always peachy keen fun...it is WORK, it is a hard job you don't get paid for. BUT...I really think it will be worth it. He is used to being a single dad (he has all 3 full time) and I am used to being a single mom, I have 2 full time. So, that said, we will be very busy, but both of us are used to cleaning, laundry, getting groceries and working, so we have both agreed that this will just continue, together. I am not expecting a fairytale...but I would love for this to work, and spend my life with this man.

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...
