#mamavation mom Finalist – Kelly – @eclecticmommy

So, I mentioned earlier this week that it’s time again to vote for the next Mamavation Mom, but Campaign 10 is ALLLLLL about couples.  So this time, it’s not just the Mom’s involved, Dads are on board too!  So once again, I’ve opened up my blog to the finalists so that you can decide who you want to see as the NEXT Mamavation Mom Couple!  I hope you’ll take some time to get to know the girls and their significant others as you decide who is ready to take their journey to a healthy life to the next step. The other day, I let Rachel share her story and giveaway with you.  Today I’d like to introduce you to Kelly and her husband JD.

{1} We are high school sweethearts. Married almost 6; together 10+.

{2} We have seen each other at our largest 200+ pounds; and smallest 125 pounds (Kelly) 150 pounds (JD).

{3} JD actually went on Weight Watchers once and lost 50 pounds eating McDonald’s soft serve and diet Pepsi for breakfast; now that’s healthy.

{4} Kelly has owned an ab roller.

{5} JD aspires to own a shake weight.

{6} We have tried Weight Watchers together, bought personal training sessions, and bet against each other. Mamavation has been the only thing to stick around this long and consistently (12 weeks). Doesn’t mean the stakes aren’t still high. A new DSLR for me and iPad for him are on the line.

{7} Running our first 5K in January. JD is an asthmatic and I have a genetic degenerative knee disorder so running has never been in the cards. We are looking forward to building up our endurance and seeing how far we can take it.

{8} We are both teachers. JD is a stay at home dad right now. He is also pursuing his Masters in music education & teaches a course at the University. Oh and he moon-lights as a Shift Supervisor at Starbucks. Kelly is a hearing impaired educator, mom,business owner, and blogger.

{9} We have never lived anywhere else but Arizona.

{10} Our dream is to live in Boulder, CO.

{11} We are raising our son healthy, organic, and all shades of green.

{12} Our son eats better than us. (proud and ashamed to say)

{13} We want to be healthy so we can grow our family and have the energy to keep up with our toddler.

{14} We want this for us. We want this for our son. We want this for our family. We want a healthy lifestyle.
