About Me

  • Biography
    As a little girl, proper nutrition and physical activity were unimportant; sweating or being athletic was not lady-like. Now, I am trying to learn the fundamentals of health and wellness, while balancing everything else. It's a daily power struggle.

[color=rgb(98,97,97)][font=Helvetica][size=3]Growing up in a typical southern family, I never learned proper nutrition or the value of physical activity. I labored under the delusion that it is not "lady-like" to sweat or be athletic. I envy the strong women of the world who are involved in sports and fitness. How I wish I had been exposed to a different way of thinking. But I cannot dwell on the things that should have or could have been different.[/size][/font][/color]

[color=rgb(98,97,97)][font=Helvetica][size=3]Now, as a working adult, I am trying to learn the fundamentals of health and wellness, while balancing school, work and family, as well as whatever else gets hurled at me. [/size][/font][/color]

[color=rgb(98,97,97)][font=Helvetica][size=3]These are new challenges for me and I find myself in a power struggle between what I have always done and what I should be doing.[/size][/font][/color]

[color=rgb(98,97,97)][font=Helvetica][size=3]I am trying to get on the right track and stay motivated, but it is a very difficult journey for me, both physically and emotionally. Still, I know I must do this for me and though it may be difficult, I am worth it![/size][/font][/color]
