Single Mother of my beautiful little boy, Draven Everette, of whom is my best friend. I am an Employment Specialist who helps job seekers and people down on their luck find positions in training in the workplace and/or classroom setting. I have two male guinea pigs, SON has "pigga pigs" and an ornery cat named Adonis. Sometimes with all the testosterone in the home I pull my hair out. At least they all know that Mommy Bear is the boss! Going thru some rough patches health wise, but trying to stay active in my hunt to start feeling...normal again.

Member Since: 5/1/2013

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My goal is to finally buy a bikini this year!!! I havent owned one since I was 16 years old and have struggled with weight, but more importantly, body image, my whole life. I want to finally have the confidence in myself not to feel ashamed of my body and feel like a beautiful mother, not an overweight individual that hides herself away from social events and opportunities to improve my day just because I feel so scared about my body and skin being seen. I won a photograhy shoot recently adn would like to be proud and let my inner beauty show thru it. I want to eat healthier and better so that I can stay with my little boy here on this earth as long as I had planned to! I want to overall feel better emotionally adn physically so I can start enjoying, well...ME...again instead of being on autopilot and going thru the motions of day to day. I am ready to feel good, look good and know it thru and thru

My Program:
I have been advised by my physician to take on a low-acid and low-potassium diet which has been extremely difficult, given that I have a two year old at home whose rather picky. Not to mention, growing up my house was meat and potato. I am learning how to cook with all these new ingredients and have started making a recipe book to have at home of my favorites I have tried so far. I am also looking into gardening from home to meet my no preservative, no artificial guidelines as well. Trying to take a walk at least 3 to 5 times a week with my busy schedule and move as much as possible.

Personal Information:
I have lots of nicknames, but my name is BreAnna, or Bre to most everyone who knows me. My daddy is the only one who gets to call me Schmooky and my momma is the only one to get away with calling me Bre-Bre. I am from the middle of Kansas, the heart of America. I know the perceptions of my home state, but regardless of parts of it being flat, there are some really nice landscapes and underground scenes, not to mention "Wrath of God" storms you can see coming for miles..

Other Information:
"Nothing can be loved nor hated until it is first understood"
-Leo Da Vinci

"I had the taste of blood and chocolate in my mouth, each one as sweet and hateful as the other"

"Bizarre is good! Common has hundreds of explanations. Bizarre has hardly any."
-Dr House

So live, that when thy summons comes to join
The innumerable caravan which moves
To that mysterious realm, where each shall take
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.
-from Thanatopsis by William Cullen Bryant

    A Blessing
    "May you live long and realize your potential.
    May your spirit soar high, and may you
    always have the courage to follow the truth.
    May all your aspirations be fulfilled and goodness prevail.
    May every being on earth find peace and happiness,
    shelter and refuge."
