The purpose of this blog is to share my recipes and wellness tips.
In the last four months, I've lost almost 17 pounds, and completely transformed the way I feel about myself. For me, the journey is not about weight, but about wellness and health. I've been "skinny" and "curvy" my whole life, but that means nothing.
A little background about why I started life as an non-deprived health nut: September 2012, I was trying on clothing in a Nordstrom's dressing room. I realized my regular size was not fitting right. I started thinking back through the year, and it dawned on me that a lot of the clothing I'd donated to the GoodWill had suddenly (or maybe gradually) become too small for me. Then there was the issue of the scale, which read a number that was too high for my 5'5" frame.
Through my trials, errors, and successes these past four months, I've come up with recipes that are realistic, filling, and yummy. I have realized that weight loss and wellness are not about deprivation. They are about modification and compromise.
For the record, I am not a Dietitian, nutritionist or certified wellness expert. I am just a normal woman who's learned to make health and wellness flavorful and fun!
My exercises of choice are Jazzercise and Vinyasa Yoga. I work out five to six times a week.
My food of choice is...everything! Stay tuned and try my recipes. I promise you will not be disappointed.
Happy reading, happy eating, and thank you for checking out my blog!
