Story
Tagline
Keeping family active without going crazy
Introduction
If you want to keep moving, join me and my family on our journey. Kids should not be slowing you down - they should motivate you to be active. I love riding my bike and I take my kids along. I make healthy food choices most of the time, and my kids know the difference between everyday food and sometimes food (most of the time?). Full-time working and blogging - I am working hard on finding balance. Learn more about me
