My First Facebook Profile Picture

I just saw this goofy facebook status that said to compare your first ever FB profile pic with your most recent pic!

Here we go…


That was me in 2007!  Above is me today!  The thing that strikes me most when I look at old photos of myself is how less open my eyes were.  I became VERY interested in my health sometime around 2009.  Over time, my eyes became much more open and bright.

It’s like my eyes opened to how good I never knew I could feel.  I was never terribly unhealthy, but once I started eating better and focusing on my health, I was stunned at how much different I felt.

Fast forward to 2017, I am still learning, still experimenting.  Generally, I know what works (for me).  I still aim to refine my routines and improve as much as possible.  I see it as a lifelong journey.

Here’s to the next 10 years of health!!


Making Health Simple


I love the simplicity of whole foods.  Nothing fancy, no intricate recipes.  I am busy!  I am inspired, I have a lot to do!  Maybe I am a weirdo, I don’t enjoy cooking fancy dishes… I love simple flavors.  I eat to fuel my body so that I can get out into the world and have fun while accomplishing my goals.

We are all working with the same number of hours in a day.  Becoming a master of your time is key to a fulfilling life.  We choose what to spend our time on, that is our responsibility.

My goal is to create a space to share how I have managed to make health simple.  It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of the opinions, diets, plans, rights and wrongs out there.  I have learned that it is easy to get caught up in the confusion.  Who do you listen to?  We are all on a journey, and that journey does not have an end point!  Results come when you take consistent steps toward improving your life.  We are all going to try things that don’t work.  Those things lead us to the things that do work!

Stick around, enjoy the ride, and never stop striving to develop the best version of you!
