I’m a mom, an artist, an average woman who grew up sharing bits of her life with others. I found early on that through blogging I can share intimate details of my life and that sharing helped others feel less alone. We all share similar life experiences – happiness, struggles, and secrets that connect the pieces of our lives, that connects us.
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family
That is my life motto and I hope that it will be yours too. Together we can change our families making them healthier and happier. As mother’s if we take the time to work on making ourselves healthier our families will become healthier.
I’ve seen this by personal experience. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight. My main focus was to stay up with my two very active preschool boys. But as I saw the results in my health and saw my boys start getting active with me I realized I was changing my life and my boys.
After seeing these amazing changes I started sharing them here on Pepper Scraps. As I got messages from other moms at how I was inspiring them I decided to change Pepper Scraps to become a place to help other moms find a healthier them.
Healthy Family Means More than Eating Healthy
As I moved from working on weight loss to maintaining my weight loss in my own life so has Pepper Scraps changed from being about healthy eating to being about a healthy family. My boys are now in school and we are learning about balancing our lives. We are working on making more healthy habits, keeping busy, and spending quality time together.
