My Story

Oh sister. Where do I even begin?! 

Really, I have always had an interest in health. 

Not so much as a "dieting fan" or even the type who "exercises for fun", but more along the lines of the girl who liked to buy the health magazine in the checkout line for workout tips and new recipes. But honestly, I got tired of the chicken, broccoli, rice bit or recipes full of odd ingredients that my store didn't carry and that I'd never use in another recipe ever again.  

This interest of mine turned into a part-time job in 2008 as a Personal Trainer.  I didn't like training in the gym because I couldn't stand how expensive it was for my clients who had to pay their monthly dues AND pay for time with me.  I just don't feel that "healthy" should be so expensive!

For most of my life, staying fit has been pretty easy for me... until motherhood.  Unlike most new moms, postpartum hit me late.  I had stopped my training. I managed to delay the denial that I was a Special Needs Mom for 3 years, but when it caught up to me, it hit me hard.  I had isolated myself and had turned to food to soothe the pain of scrolling other mother's happy lives on social media.  I battled with emotional eating until NOTHING in my closet fit anymore!

I had to do something. 

 

It was during one of my many "Mommy Meltdown Moments", balled in the corner of my shower, sobbing and praying, that I was faced with a challenged to remember a time in my life when I felt happy.  If  you've never been depressed, you won't understand how difficult of a task this is.  My joy of being a mom was outweighed with the guilt I carried for somehow causing my son's intellectual disability.  As I took a trip down memory lane, searching my soul for answers, exhausted from the tears I was crying, my heart rested on the memory of helping other women with their struggle in health & fitness.  

 

A forgotten grin cracked across my face and my tears dried with purpose this time around.  Simply put, while I couldn't help myself in my own struggles, I could be the friend I wished I'd had and I could be damn sure not let any of my friends struggle alone the way I was struggling. 

 

Welcome to my Good Fit Vibe Life where I love to teach health and fitness to you on a very why-basis and personally applicable kind of way.  Instead of getting back involved in the gyms, I moved all my training online which not only suited my life as a special needs mom, but fits the busy lives of my clients better than I would have realized.  I feel that creating a healthy lifestyle is SO much more than just exercise and food.  It's building yourself from the inside out: mind, body, nutrition & the spaces around you in organization. For us women, they are all connected.

 

Sweet friend, your path brought you here reading this for a reason. Let me shoulder the load you've been carrying and show you an easy way to crate that healthier life you're looking for. Let's get started.  

Love & Strength,
