103 – Half Size Me: Making Maintenance a Lifestyle with Josie

JosieIn this episode of Half Size Me, Heather talks with Josie, a mom of four, who blogs about health, fitness, and eating well on her blog, Yum Yuck.

She believes maintenance needs to be a lifestyle and that you can make working out a pleasure, instead of a chore.

About Josie: “I’m a wife and mom to four kids, ages 5 to 20 years-old. My highest weight was 185 pounds while pushing a size 14 (with my formerly melting leg). My lowest weight (after birthing all the gremlin-children) is 147 pounds.

I’m not a certified trainer or nutritionist, but my passion for heath & fitness has taken me around the block a few times through personal experience and a ton of ongoing research. I’m also big time on all things natural health (juicing, alternative medicine, natural beauty products, etc). Fitness, healthy eating and natural health has truly put me in control. I feel empowered!
