My name is Caroline. I am 37 and I have a wonderful and gorgeous husband named Kevin who is the ultimate workout buff. He keeps me motivated- there is no doubt about that. He is lean and toned with only 3% body fat. I am a stay-at home mother and photographer!

I on the other hand am not so naturally lean. I have to work hard to stay thin. My major problem areas are my butt and thighs. So I will be working extra hard to tone those babies up. The rest of my body is very important as well so I do a lot of weight training and cardio.

We also have three beautiful and healthy boys (9 year old, Owen), (7 year old, Simon) and (3 year old, Lincoln)! Before I got pregnant the first time I was able to get down to 18.6% body fat. I tried my hardest to get into the best shape possible- I wanted to be able to lose that baby fat as soon as I could after that beautiful baby came. AND I DID IT!!! But after two more kiddos, now I have to reach that goal again! But I know that Exercise and Clean Eating can put anyone on the right track for a successful goal!

Lamentations 3:23-33 (NIV)
"They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him."

    Is that you and your hubby? You are a beauiful couple! Yes, I am hispanic. Sorry, I am not from another country (my parents are from Mexico though). I was born, bred and raised in Texas. That is awesome that you and your husband both play together! Hubby and I play in Spring/Summer in 100 degree weather/Fall for COED O30, though I need an OVER 40 league and he will need an over 50 league in August! He played college soccer for A&M (yes feel free to say any Aggies jokes!) :) I do speak Spanish and in Houston, Texas being bilingual is a plus.

    The only places I have been out of USA are England (London and Manchester), Ireland and Scotland.

    Have a great day,
    P.S. What positions do you and your husband play? My husband and I play everywhere (except goalie, I did do it one year for my women's teams and not fun at all, I wanted to be running! Not to mention I am short and balls would go right over my head b/c this Hispanic can't jump! :)
