HI! Welcome to the team. I am still fairly new myself. It is so hard to find balance. My kids are 10, 8, 5, and 2 years old. I have been homeschooling all their lives too and am married to a youth minister. I just started 4 weeks ago. For me I have had to make exercise my job or it just doesn't happen. This is not easy. Monday I had to fix an early dinner so I could go to the YMCA to my step class at 4:15-5:00, come home and take the kids to one of their soccer games, and when it was over take my 10 year old to her practice. What a long day but I have to fit exercise into it or it won't happen.
I love the Y because ours has a free nursery and it is wonderful to have that hour to work out without interruptions! That's where I am. I have lost 10 lbs. by putting exercise first and tracking calories on here daily in the past month. Hope this helps. Good luck to you!

Decide. Commit. Succeed. (It can be done! I will do it!)

1 Cor. 6:19-20 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own, you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your body.

emoticon Kara, and emoticon to the team. I have three daughters: two teens and a 9 yo. I married a youth pastor, too! emoticon Now my DH is serving the Lord through his job at a Christian radio station. We also enjoy working with the children and youth at our church.

I hope you find this team to be as much of a blessing as I do! Let us know if you have any questions.

Welcome Kara! :o)

my two kiddo's are 11 1/2 and 10, I've got a boy and a girl.

For me, when I first started here on Sparkpeople, I just tracked what I ate, then I added in some exercise and continued to track what I eat. I don't eat 'diet' foods, I want to eat what my family eats, so I learned about measuring and weighing portions, or eating half a serving of 'whatever'. That was in August of last year, and this has worked for me.

The unbalance comes with sitting at the computer for too long trying to read everything! So it helps to give yourself a time limit. But that doesn't always work for me either.

I hope you find the encouragement that you need here.

Blessings,
Stephanie

Welcome! It does take a while to figure the site out, but it is worth the effort!
Jump right in and post on the boards here. I look forward to getting to know you.

My name is Kara, I have four kids, three of which are school age. My two girls are 12 and 10, my sons are 6 and 6 months. I have been home schooling for 7 years, so all of their school-lives. My husband is a youth pastor and is in seminary. My weight has crept up and down - lately more up than down! I want to be healthy for my kids so that they are healthy, too. I miss being active. I was excited to find this team and see how other home schoolers find 'balance', lol.
