Meet the Mama

Hello!  I'm Azia.  
(Pronounced 'Asia')
I'm 26 years old and the mother of two beautiful children;  a 4 year old daughter and a newborn son.  So- I am also 'Mama.'

One morning (before I found out I was pregnant with my son- around November 2011) I was getting dressed and my daughter proudly exclaimed, "Mama,  you've got a big belly!"  She ran towards me to jiggle it.

I was mortified as I looked in the mirror, Shit. I do have a big belly!  I have a big everything!  Grabbing the flub with both hands as Eva did, I vowed I'd make whatever changes necessary to get that big belly down.

Then, the big blue plus sign stared back at me.  And my belly grew- and it grew- and it grew... until my belly was stretched beyond recognition.  (Real women have stretchmarks, I hope!)

Luckily, I had a healthy and happy pregnancy.  My son was just .05 ounces shy of 9 pounds and I gained only an additional 5 pounds during my entire pregnancy!

Since his birth I have been working my behind off to say good-bye to that belly!  

We owe it to our children to be the best versions of ourselves.  I want to be able to keep up with my kids and lead by example when it's comes to leading a healthy lifestyle.  If you haven't got your health, not much else matters.

I'll be documenting my journey: The good.  The bad.  The ugly.  (Trust me, there's going to be *a lot* of ugly!)  

Wish me luck!


  1. You gotta love a kid's honesty! Good luck on your journey to be the best for your children.

  2. That is the price we pay for having those little angles! I wish you luck and success!
