I love fitness. I would call myself a foodie. I love to cook meals at home for my family, but love a good night out in a restaurant too! I am a personal trainer, and hold certifications in kettlebells and metabolic resistance training as well. I also am a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified nutrition coach – 1) I am crazy interested in learning about food and how it plays a role in our body and 2) I think most people suffer from the dreaded diet mindset and fear food, and are terrified to trust their own choices, and so they cling to the next plan, and the next, and the next…..and I want to help break that icky cycle.
Food and fitness are passions of mine (and also my business), but they are not my entire life. I hold another couple titles as well – mom, wife, accountant, sister, daughter, entrepreneur, blogger, and the list continues. I like to think critically, and allllll those roles help me do that. I am more of a doer than a dreamer. Guess what? Food and fitness happen to help me be BETTER at those things.
I started this blog as a timeline of my training and struggles to finish my first Tough Mudder. Well…Tough Mudder #1 came and went, and was amazing…and I’ve done a few since then. Since completing these, I’ve learned something about myself. I loathe the preparation for a big event, and I really just like my gym time to make ME better on the daily, and not for an hour or two long event. I need it to make ME better for LIFE, not me a better athlete for one specific event. Make sense?
I like chatting about lots of stuff. Reach out if you’d like! Or jump on my email list to stay updated on what the heck is going on around here!
