Food and fitness are my passion. As a former dieter, over-exerciser, and calorie counter I know what it's like trying to reach a weight loss goal while feeling miserable. Counting calories in my dieting days was a means to get my body smaller, but it in fact only triggered obsessive and binge eating behaviors. Eating less and moving more was not the answer. I never saw my body change the way I wanted it to. Instead of chasing the next diet fad, I got smarter and learned everything I could about how to treat my body the right way. And it was a lot simpler than what I was doing! That's why I'm here, to make weight loss and a healthy lifestyle simple for you, too.
I have two kids of my own, a girl and a boy - plus a puppy if he counts - who have become my world. I get to stay home with these little people during the day, a privilege I have to remind myself of often. I've learned the best and worst parts about myself, my kids have taught me more about life than anyone!
Becoming a mom has introduced me to a world of travel mugs to keep my coffee hot, days spent living in leggings, and my lava-like salt baths that are a weekly requirement to maintain a sense of luxury.
I am happiest when I'm with my family, in my kitchen creating new recipes that I love sharing with you, or playing board games around the kitchen table because I love watching people's true colors come out.
You can count on me to be someone to laugh with, an ear to listen, and the girl who will always get your Friends references. Let's get to know each other better over on my social pages!
