My name is Shelley. I spent some time trying to come up with a catchy name for this blog. Mighty Mamma? (I have three children, a boy born in Rome in 2008, and twin girls born in the US in 2010: they are all three dual citizens of both Italy and the US and are bilingual). No. I don’t want the word mom in the title. I’m more than just a mom.

I want it to reflect this journey I’m taking. The journey to strong. I mean, I’m strong now, because I’ve been through a lot in my life, struggles like all of us have gone through at one time or another. But now I’ve embarked on a true journey to overall health and fitness, something I always kind of snickered at because it seemed like those vain people who went into the gym like peacocks to flaunt their feathers.

I’m learning a lot, working my butt off, and changing my body and mind. I’m not going to lie to you, it’s hard. Really, really hard. But so satisfying. And I want to share my triumphs and struggles, so that I can let you know that if I can do it, so can you.

Thanks for joining me on my journey!

To your strength and health,
