It’s hard for me to believe I am starting a blog, and putting myself all out there!

I am a busy working mom like everyone else, trying to make healthy choices. Over the last year I’ve tried to eat relatively clean, with Cheeto’s somehow sneaking their way in every once in awhile!

About 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, and had brain surgery a month later. It was a very long and painful recovery. I was very active before my surgery, but I was finding that things I once loved were a bit difficult for me to do after. I was finding it a challenge to exercise, and gained about 20 pounds.

I was fortunate to have a dear friend, Stephanie, help me get into a Beachbody program, and drink Shakeology every day. I was leery for a long time before I ordered, as I am still somewhat limited in what I can do physically. It was a 30 day money back guarantee, so with the help of a Mich Ultra (ok maybe 2!) I ordered Shaun T Insanity Max 30 workout, and the Shakeology. It has literally been a game changer for me. I have not taken any pain killers, or Aleve since shortly after I started both. This was almost 4 years of regular medication! YIKES!

As we know, life gets busy! I am a third grade teacher, and once my summer training was over, I let stress get the best of me! I didn’t work out regularly, and my eating was less than stellar. I am looking forward to kick starting 2017 with healthy choices, and all of you!

I am excited to share meal prep tips, healthy eating habits, recipes, stories about my experiences with teenage daughters, a busy traveling husband, and more!
