I’m a young mother learning the art of balancing.
For years I have struggled with my weight and I’m now learning its not about the number on the scale or the size of your pants. Its about feeling good. Its about eating fresh healthy foods and staying active.
Growing up I was raised on mostly a vegetarian diet. Even today my diet is mostly vegetarian. On occasion though I do love a good hamburger. I’m a firm believer that everything in moderation is a good thing. I love vegetables, fruits and SWEETS! I’m not going to pass up a piece of chocolate cheesecake just because it doesn’t fit into my diet. You only live once, right? If you eat good for you foods most of the time indulging every once in awhile is NO BIG DEAL!!
I sadly do not have a gym membership, but I’m learning that you don’t have to spend an hour at the gym sweating to be strong and healthy. Over the past few years I have learned to find other ways to stay active. Yoga, walking, lifting light weights, running after a little three-year-old.
I have a beautiful toddler that is FULL OF LIFE!!! She definitely keeps me busy. I’m determined to raise her with a healthy food-loving attitude.
I hope you all enjoy the recipes, photos, food/lifestyle tips and ideas. I hope that by reading this little blog you too can find happiness in your everyday life without overindugling in guilty pleasures.
