We are best friends, cousins and accountability partners. We married our Leo men in the same year (2008) and had our first babies 4 months apart. I (Nkoyo) ran my first 5K in September 2011 (Chicago Half Marathon & 5K) and Elena (Precious) ran her first 5K in November 2011 (Health Connections Food Bank). We started a “lose the baby weight” journey together a year after our babies were born. Nine months and 60 lbs later we found out we both were pregnant with our second babies.
So we took the challenge to be as healthy as possible in our 2nd pregnancies and instead of waiting a year to lose the baby weight we started once we got the green light from our doctors.
Take the journey with us as we blog about fitness, being working moms, and the kids that make us laugh and cry simultaneously.
