Meet Dana!

about-familyWelcome to my little spot on the Web!!! I’m a work from home mom of 3, personal trainer, sports nutritionist, wife, and animal lover. I’m from GA and LOVE it here! I love spending time with my kids, doing crafts, staying active, and being outside. I also am a big fan of reading and love all different books!! I started this site as I’m always getting questions about how I manage everything. My own business, 3 kids, weight loss after a baby….it’s not easy, but I hope to share a little bit here and there about how I multi task everything I do. My house is messy, but my kids are happy!!! Hope you enjoy!!!

Want to know a little more about me? You came to the right place!!!! I tend to ramble so if you weren’t wanting to dive deeper into my life story, then hit the back button quickly 😉

I was born and raised north of Atlanta, GA. I’ve always been a business minded person and started raising and selling birds when I was 13. Yep, you read that right, 13!! I had a very big business too for a teenager!! People were on a waiting list for my birds because they were hand raised and very tame. At 13 I use to wake up every few hours at night to hand-feed them. I was a pretty dedicated kid haha!! I started my business with the goal of it paying for my horse-back-riding lessons, and it sure did!!!

When I was 16 we moved to southeast GA. My bird business unfortunately went down hill in that area but I kept it up for another 3 years. The area was just very small and more people hunted birds than kept them for pets :(

My passion has always been fitness, animals, and being a successful business owner.

From the time I was about 11, I started struggling with my weight. That went on until I was 24 and finally learned the healthy way to lose weight. But in between that 13 year span, I tried every diet, weight loss product, gimick, etc on the market. Learning to lose weight and keep it off the healthy way is what motivated me to become a certified personal trainer and help others do the same!

I enjoy staying busy. I enrolled in college full time when I was pregnant with my first child and graduated in 3 1/2 years….with taking a year off to have my second child!!! Right after I graduated, I launched my own personal training business. See, I like staying busy haha!!

After graduating college, I started doing a few different things from home to make an income and help out with bills, getting out of debt and money towards our kids college fund. Before long, my income became a full-time income and I had people asking HOW, WHAT, and WHY. That was when I started my page on facebook, Work From Home Moms.

about-exercise

 

I love to be outside!! My body craves Vitamin D!! I like hiking, biking, walking, anything that keeps me outside!!!

 

My whole world pretty much revolves around my family. I have 3 kids ages 6, 4 1/2 and 2!  My husband is amazing and supports everything I do to help give our kids the best future.

 

about-kidsI love working from home!! Its tough. It requires a lot of balance. Some-days I get no work done, other days I have to stay up late to get work done. Its all about balance. Sometimes I answer emails on the elliptical machine.

 

As you can tell, my thoughts go a mile a minute, but I think that’s part of being a Mom!! I’m always juggling more than one thing, thinking about at least 3 or 4 things, and half the time I have a list to keep me on track. I’m just you basic average Mom, trying to accomplish it all.
