I am a faith driven happily married wife and dog mom who loves to lead a healthy lifestyle. I am originally from Iowa but took a leap of faith and moved to Bend, Oregon in 2014!

Wellness is something that incorporates all aspects: fitness, nutrition, sleep, stress management, relaxation, relationships, spirituality, medical, etc. My goal in life is to get the right balance for me..and also help others to do the same!

I've had a lot of issues with hormone regulation and overall microbiome imbalances the past few years that have challenged me in ways I never thought possible. While my health problems can make life a lot harder...I know that this probably happened to me because God thinks I am strong enough to handle it...and to learn from it so I can help others with similar challenges. It challenges me to be a better person and inspiration for others:)

    No presents in our house, either. DH broke his foot so we don't even have a tree. Enjoy the holiday -- it's really all about friends and family anyway!

    Things are good. I switched to a different position this year so it's less stressful. I've gained back all I lost and am just getting back to exercising and eating right. I'll get there. Have a great Christmas!

    My kids/stepkids are all out of the house so we agreed on no gifts this year either. We're spending a night in a motel with all of them and my brother and his family. Enjoy!

    Hey Casey!
    Sorry I haven't been around much lately. With my Nanny's funeral and kids camp, I was basically just getting my daily log in points and tracking my workouts. Glad to be getting back into the swing of things this week. I had 2 weeks of not so great eating due to a week of cafeteria food when my Nanny was in the hospital and then a week of kids camp food. Doing well now, back to tracking on MFP emoticon
