I’ve never been a skinny girl. It took me a long time to realize that I didn’t want to be.
I had an unhealthy relationship with food that got so bad that I was eating 900 calories for an entire day! Sitting down to count out every protein, carb, and fat gram that passed my lips. I became a slave to the scale. Then I discovered my love of strength training and fitness. Suddenly I realized that the number on the scale didn’t mean as much to me as being healthy over all! Strive to live and overall healthy and balanced life, and the rest will fall in to place.
Over the years, I’ve realized that even the tiniest of tweaks can make a big difference in your overall health and in turn a difference in the reflection in the mirror. I wanted to be able to share these revelations with my friends and family, and so The Wellness Journey was born.
I’m not going to pretend to be perfect at all times. I’ll never say that I never skip a workout—because I DO. But what I will say, and it shows in my blog—is that it’s OKAY. We are on a JOURNEY. One that will have ups and downs, and twists and turns—all of which I will share with you all along the way. Nothing is off limits on my blog really. Anything from workouts to recipes to random facts about me, to the way my husband refers to me as releasing the kraken when dealing with lack of customer service. ha ha
My hope is to be an inspiration to all as well as be inspired by my readers! I’m a 30-something mother (up until a few years ago, a single mother), a wife, a career woman, small business owner—you get the idea. I want to inspire others to continue or start their wellness journey. We can do it together!
