Fit! Not Fat!

I stepped on the scale right after my 'baby' turned 10 and weighed as much as I did the day I went to the hospital to deliver her. While she was 10, I lost 41 pounds. Over 15 months I lost a total of 50 pounds. I have been working on maintenance since October 2011.

Now that I am at a healthy weight, I am working living a more active lifestyle and finding ways to help others do the same. I am a NASM-certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist and a member of our school district's ...

Now that I am at a healthy weight, I am working living a more active lifestyle and finding ways to help others do the same. I am a NASM-certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist and a member of our school district's Wellness Committee. I am furthering my education (in nutrition, fitness, and other areas) by taking MOOCs.

In 2013 I focused more on mental balance, centergy, and running after injuring my shoulder lifting heavy early in the year. As the year went on I began to struggle with maintenance. This year I am renewing my commitment to positive thinking and balance in all things.

Yeah I hear ya with the Brussels. My hubby is not as much a fan as I am. We went to Whole Foods the other day and he places a container in the cart and says, "Just in case they don't have them at the grocery store this week."
