About our Sponsor!


christineHello, my name is Christine. After my first pregnancy I gained 60lbs and really struggled to find a way to get it off. Due to the challenges all new moms face as well as having my husband deploy for the next year, 5 months after my son was born, I became very depressed. I found it extremely hard to get myself motivated to want to workout and to lose that weight.

Then there he was, Shaun T, the man behind Beachbody's Insanity workout, motivating me and telling me I could do it! I decided to ordered the program and it literally changed my life. I dropped all of that extra weight doing the Insanity workouts and it was right before I welcomed my husband home from his year long deployment. I felt and looked better then I did when we got married and I was so excited for him to see the new me.

Now here it is a few years later and I again found myself in the same situation. Baby number two, not the weight gain I had with first, but an uncomfortable weight gain none the less. And, as before, my husband deploys to Afghanistan for 10 months. So the depression of being alone with now 2 kids and trying to lose weight strikes...I again turned to Beachbody. This time I signed up as a coach because I knew how awesome their products were and I wanted to help others along with trying to help myself. This was the best decision I have ever made! I started the new 21-day fix program along with drinking Shakeology, and successfully lost 10lbs, now I moved to doing Focus T25 and PiYO. I have also made such good friends with people who have consistently motivated me to stay on track with my goals and for that I am so thankful!

I am still on my weight loss and fitness journey but I was able again to welcome my husband home from this deployment to a lighter and firmer me, and that is truly the best feeling! I would love to help those who are wanting to get in shape and lose weight like I did. I have been at that place where it can be hard to get started and sometimes you need someone with the right tools to motivate and point you in the right direction. Let me be your coach and let's do this together!

Recap on Jones Park Fun Day Event

When I heard that there was going to be a event at Jones Park, it reminded me of the similar event we attended last year. This year, Jones Park Fun Day happened on Saturday, July 26th from 12pm to 3pm located near 37th Avenue and Commercial Street (parallel to Victoria Drive) in Vancouver. We went over there after having lunch at a nearby restaurant.


At the park, there were games, crafts, music, balloon animals, and more. From far away, we heard music and people hula dancing. The first thing we did when we got there was go to the craft table.

Here's Little Brandon making a photo frame.




Brandon made a Pokemon button pin.



Then we headed over to the South Van Policing Community Booth. Brandon got to spin the wheel to win stuff. I filled out a survey and received a free pen. While I did that, hubby took little Brandon to the Fire Engine and met the fire chief who gave Brandon some stickers.


The line up for the balloon animals took a bit long. Hubby stood in the line while Brandon and I stepped over to the other side of the playground to explore what other activities were available.  There was also a bouncy castle, BBQ, hot dogs, and food, but we had to pay for those. I didn't buy anything because I didn't want to spend anything.


The organizer mentioned prior to the event that Queen Elsa from Disney "Frozen" would make an appearance, but we didn't get to see her even tho we were there for almost the entire time. However, we did see the policing community's squirrel mascot. We took photos with him.


I forgot to bring sunscreen, but good thing there were few nice big trees to give us enough shade. Finally, after waiting a long time and 30 minutes left, Brandon finally got his balloon animal before heading home.



Little Brandon had a great time. Volunteers were quite organized and helpful. Thanks to the organizers for a fun day at Jones Park.

Summer Community Children's Party

This year, we attended the Sizzling Summer Community Children's Party (funded by the Vancouver Foundation) on Saturday (July 19th) that was organized by a friend's friend who applied for the Neighborhood Small Grants. It was held at Clinton Park in Vancouver. I told my husband about it and we drove there right after we finished our errands. They had this event last year, but I missed it because we were away on vacation.  This is their 2nd annual Community Children's Party. We made it this year.

The weather was a little bit cool that day. It rained in the morning, but later in the day it started to get better. The sun was starting to peek out when we got there around 2:30pm. The weather held up with some sunshine off and on.


There were games, crafts, free makeovers, food, and lucky prize draws. I love the craft table where we had a chance to make recycled art and flower pots using magazine pages.


The event was well-organized with a group of volunteers. I was happy to see my friends and also met a few new friends. Little one had a lot of fun in the sandbox and playground. They had the BBQ near the playground with hotdogs, salad, appetizers, and snacks to share with everyone and the kids. Everyone had a great time!
