Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Ultimate Blog Party 2013
I am joining in The Ultimate Blog Party for the first time .
A Little About Me

Hi all! I am Elisha and I have been blogging for about 1.5 year and in the past three months have been finding my writing voice. I was married at 19 to my husband who I met when I was 12. This year will be 5 years in May. I am a boy mom of two. Benjamin is 3.5 years old and Ian is 1.5 years old. I am a major introvert. I had one home birth and the second at my midwife's birth center. I am running my first 5k this month and am so nervous but excited. 
My Goal this Year

Since my husband and I are finished having children my major goal this year is to lose 50 pounds total. I have lost 16 pounds so far since January. I have been eating clean and running with my husband.
About My Blog
I blog about motherhood, marriage, weight loss, eating clean and being a boy mom striving for authentic motherhood. I made this blog originally to keep family up to date on the daily life but soon I realized I wanted to encourage other moms who are in the trenches of motherhood. Moms who are battling weight loss, frustrated with breastfeeding, struggling with tantrums and more. I hope when you are here you feel comfortable enough to be honest and enjoy a community of other moms! I also started a Link Up this past Thursday! It is every Thursday right here. Join Me?

  8. Hi Elisha,

    I'm Shelly--a SAHM to three little ones. I'm hopping over from the UBP.

    I'm done having kiddos too and trying to get my body back. I'm planning on running my first 5k this fall...I need that much time to prepare for it. I hope yours goes great.

    You met your husband young huh? Have you ever written your love story for the blog? I bet that would be a sweet one.

    Nice to meet you!
