Welcome to our hot mess express station in Austin TX!
I am Jackie Ruggiero and I live in Austin, TX with my daughter, Ade.
As a working single mom, I am well aware of how challenging and frustrating it is to juggle, manage, organize and keep up with a million different things at once.
We share custody of Ade, Duke (our german shepard, who maintains his home with me) and our 4 cats (who maintain their home with my ex husband). Mostly amicable so we do okay.
More often than not, it seemed as though some days were more than overwhelming and everything seemed to be falling apart. I have been trying to lose weight for a while and found different things to help me along the way.
I have learned to find ways to juggle all the tasks and I found a need for a place where there was a lot of information in one place about many different topics. So I created Active Mom Low Carb for all the moms (and dads) out there that need some extra love and some extra help to stay on top of the juggling.
I was looking for a place that had health and wellness information, tips and ideas but also had healthy and low carb recipes and meal plans. I needed activities to keep my daughter busy and helped me get my life unraveled and organized. I couldn’t find it all in one place so when I started creating some of the planners and workbooks. I found I needed a place to put them to help other moms (and dads) as well so here we are!!
What will you find here on the site?
There are many topics covered all in the health and wellness category. If there is ever a topic you want to know more about, please ask!!
We also have tons of planners, journals, coloring books and organizational items to help everyone get more organized and on a way to a healthier life style.
We want everyone to feel that you got value out of the information and products provided. Whether it is just grabbing a meal planner and some recipes to make life a little easier at home or gaining a little knowledge about a certain topic.
This blog/website is for anyone who is or wants to be on a health journey and looking for information, tips and ways to help. It does NOT have to be weight loss although most of us are seeking that. It could just be eating better and healthier. Maybe looking for more self care and help to plan that in your day.
My expertise is in construction accounting (which i love) and you may ask how I ended up here. This is a way for us to share all the awesome things we have come across to help everyone else!
My motivation for this is just to be a resource that anyone moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas can get the information to start or stay on a health journey with extra fun stuff that I needed. Who doesn’t like a little extra help with motivation, inspiration and just plain love with their journey.
This is an expansion of our Facebook Group that has been helping thousands with recipes, tips and tricks and supporting everyone since 2019.
