The Mission of What’s Working Here:

So What is Working Here? Short answer- Me. I’m Leslie- a working mom who works from home, works out, and constantly works on ways to do things more efficiently so I have more time for fun with my family. I’m a little OCD- the super organized kind. I love to have fun with my family and come up with creative ways to do so.
A Little More About Me
I married my high school sweetheart, Chad, over 16 years ago and we’ve been together for over 24 years. We’ve got a witty 9 year old son, Blake. We live in a suburb just north of Houston, Texas.
I work full time from home in sales for a technology company that works with multi-unit restaurants. Before I worked from home I worked full time in an office setting which helps me really appreciate being able to work from home. I feel like I have the best of both worlds working from home and still being involved with Blake’s school. It’s definitely a balancing act and I couldn’t do it without the support of my amazing husband, family and friends.
To be honest, I don’t enjoy working out. At all. But I do enjoy the health benefits and how it makes me feel more confident about my body. I’m a fan of the Beachbody work-out programs. We’ve used a number of their products so writing reviews and becoming a coach just made sense.
I LOVE food. I eat every 3 hours. Don’t mess with my meal times. I plan a detailed menu every week, print it out and hang it on my fridge- Breakfast, lunch, dinner & snacks. Yep, really. I share it here every week to help you plan (mostly) healthy meals for your family.
I enjoy cooking, gardening, planning parties, and organizing things. I’ll admit there’s some OCD in my family, OK a LOT. I’m really not as bad as my sister though. I actually enjoy organizing things like closets, pantries, garages. My recent birthday & Christmas gifts may sound lame (wooden hangers, glass jars to alphabetically arrange my spices, garage shelving & bins) but I get really excited about them. I’ve even organized my friends’ pantry, and enjoyed it!
