Hey ya’ll! Welcome to my page :) I’m so excited you are here and I hope you’ll enjoy being a part of this community! and welcome to my page! I have this page for lots of reasons, so you can expect me to share a variety of things about me and my life. Here’s a little more about ME and what you’ll find on my page: I am....Jason’s life partner for 12 years and going strong, mama to our spunky 11 year old daughter, everyday kinda mama who isn’t afraid to show her weaknesses, travel lover, community volunteer, recovering binge eater, fitness admirer, and well....often times I butcher the English language. Here’s the deal - I spent too many years unhappy with my body. I knew that I needed to do something different, but looking back I now know that I just wasn’t ready. Well...then three years ago I rolled over to get out of bed just like any other day except that day I felt a fat roll touch a different fat roll that I had never noticed before. Maybe it had been there a while, maybe I had gained ten pounds overnight (total exaggeration), but regardless of the circumstances I had FELT it for the first time. That moment changed my life. I decided to get serious about my health and fitness. I called up my girlfriend whose incredible results I had seen, and I committed to a 60 day online accountability group. I plugged into that group every single day. At the end of those 60 days, I said goodbye to 25 pounds, 15 inches, and for the first time in my life was starting to feel comfortable in my skin. That group set a foundation for my journey that continues today. Before that accountability group, I had foolishly thought my unhappiness with my body was just my issue. Boy was I wrong! That sadness had impacted every part of my life, and I didn’t even realize it. During that group and the many that have followed, I have become a better mom, partner, daughter, friend...just a better me. Deciding to make myself a priority again was the best thing that I have ever done for me and for my family. Three years later, I am still on this journey and stronger than ever. Trust me exercise is still not my jam, and nutrition struggles are still present BUT I couldn’t be happier with the progress I have made. I am now truly loving this life I have been blessed with, and setting a daily example to my daughter for how to properly love and nurture her body. Wanna know something crazy? I now get to help others every single day! Not only are they reaching their health goals, but they are becoming strong in all areas of their lives along the way – faith, marriage, parenting, relationships, confidence, you name it and I’m there to hold your hand. I stumbled for a long time, but I now know that the change I desperately needed had to come from the inside first. I feel so blessed to have found my way to this journey, and am now committed to paying this fantastic feeling forward and making others dreams become their reality. My wish is for you to find value, support, and friendship on this page <3 And if you are looking to dig in a little deeper with me, click here to join my FREE facebook community https://www.facebook.com/groups/happyhealthymama/ Thanks for reading a little more about me – I am so excited to get to know YOU!!
