I want to welcome everyone to my blog. This blog is about my life with 3 kids all under the age of 6, being PTA President of my son's school, my weight loss journey - hopefully ;), and of course my business; Clever Container!
So first I will tell you some about me. My name is Stephanie Timmons and I live in Moneta, Virginia which is at Smith Mountain Lake. I have 3 children; Mark age 6, Jessica age 2, and Aubrey 9 months. We moved here a little over 1 year ago and I was pregnant with Aubrey. I have to say that when we first moved here, I was miserable. I didn't have any friends or family here and it was a very difficult situation. Of course, it could have just been pregnancy hormones?? Either way, once Aubrey was born and I was able to get out more easily, it wasn't long before I starting meeting people and getting involved in the community. I took on the role of being the PTA president of my son's school, which is wonderful since I am more involved in what he is doing.
One day I saw saw a post on Facebook about a company called Clever Container. Clever Container is a direct sales company that offers organizational products. I thought it was rather interesting and decided that I wanted to be organized too, especially since I still hadn't unpacked all the way and with a new baby, my house was a mess!! Soon after I decided that I wanted to supplement my income and wanted to do something in direct sales but wanted something unique and that wasn't saturated with consultants. That is when I decided Clever Container was the best fit for me. So months later, guess what, I am a Clever Container Organizing Consultant!!
Since the birth of Aubrey, of course I still have some baby weight that I want gone. So I decided, okay it needs to come off now. I have started on a low carb, low calorie diet. I am in week 1 of my 500 calorie and 10 gm of carbs. I have to say, the first 3 days were the hardest and now it is getting easier. Today is my last day of 500 calories and I get to go up to 750 calories for a week. Then it will be 1000 calories for a week, then 1500, then 2000. I am also working out at least 2 times a week. So far I have lost 5 lbs!!
