Quick Introduction I'm Natalee, fun, funky, fabulous mother of 2 sweet little boys charting her course in waters rough and rugged.

Hi everyone, I'm happy this exists! Boy do I need accountability. So as hard as it is to put this all out there, I'm going to do it to get to a better place. I used to be a competitive skater. So. In. Shape. Now, not so much. That was 13 years ago and boy do I miss it. I stopped because of money and school. I had to make a decision. Fast forward to today: I have an illness that has been diagnosed that gives me all kinds of issues and makes me very sick and I have some kind of allergy/illness that we are working to uncover what it is, but it makes me exhausted, sick (a different kind than the other), and causes rashes on my legs. I am a slave to my crazy rotating schedule, 50 hr a week job (which I do love but makes my personal life really difficult to manage). I have been having bouts of depression because of the exhaustion/ sleep schedule/ rashes/ stress/ and general lack of sunlight during the winter. I've wanted to skate but I've gone and been so exhausted I needed to sleep a whole day to recover. My doctors wanted to put me on an elimination diet which they said was like a Paleo diet. Wanting to feel better I immediately went home and started this diet HARDCORE. (Before talking with the nutritionist, hehe.). I felt immensely better. I felt like I was running on rocket fuel. I had tons of energy. Then I met with the nutritionist and she took out some of the items to test for allergies. Since then my energy has crashed and I'm hoping that excersize will help me get some of that energy back. I can't afford a gym so I'm going to do this at home and hopefully I can get back enough energy to skate again. I can't wait to do a challenge, but they are already 4 weeks in so ill hop on board on the next one. I also want to learn to meditate and figure out how to fit taking care of my place into my life. It would be really nice to get to a place of balance where I can do activities I love again, instead of feeling like a slave to my work and house. I want to be happy guys! Here's to accountability
