Hi Everyone, I am new to the board and introduced myself over in the 'introduction' section. Looking forward to hold myself accountable and to share my vegan eats along with my training on my blog here. I am 41, married, mother of 3 and also a personal trainer, fitness instructor and online nutrition coach.

Thanks everyone! Yes, it was challenging post babies, but I think the secret for me was that I worked out until the end of all of my 3 pregnancies. I was blessed to have uncomplicated pregnancies and really tried to eat for 1 and a baby, not 2 people. I also jumped back in quickly w/ short at home workouts.

Thank you! I have always eaten healthy and worked out, however I slowly evolved into veganism. Years ago I gave up meat, then eventually chicken, a few years later soy, then 2 years ago dairy, 8 months ago fish and eggs.. I have been vegan for about 6 months. I am really loving this eating style! How about you?

Your hands do NOT look horrible. You should try working in building maintenance and then tell me you had horrible hands :P
