How did Team Embrace the Art of Living come to be?

Let me start off by saying I LOVE FOOD.  I love good for me foods and bad for me foods and eating them all with great enthusiasm.    My favorite food in the world is pizza.

This love for food is wicked though.  Without a balance of nutrition, exercise and sleep you’re bound to find an increasing waistline and more jiggle than giggle.  At least I did.

I’m 5′ 4 1/2″ tall and throughout my adult life I have fluctuated between 130-181#.  Yes, truly.  And I am willing to admit that my self esteem was affected by those numbers.

In June 2015 I tackled the world of fitness and nutrition by starting the 21 Day Fix Program offered by Beachbody.  My friend and professional associate in the veterinary world became my own coach, my cheerleader, my sounding wall.  I was so amazed by the difference 45 days of one-on-one coaching and a formal program made in my life that  August of 2015 had me join teambeachbody as Coach and my life changed!  It changed for the better!

In addition to using the resources available from teambeachbody, I enrolled in nutrition studies from Standford University, and I shared the heck out of everything I learned with anyone that wanted to listen.

Fast forward nearly a thousand days and here we are.

I’m developing a team of clients and coaches who are excited and motivated to make positive changes in their own life, in the lives of their family and friends.  We plan, we chew, we sweat, we find and tackle adventure!  Our team, Embrace the Art of Living, makes me proud every single day.  We would love to have you join the adventure.  If you are a foodie, love to pump iron or the pavement, or love awesome getaways… then you are surrounded by like-minded friends here.  We enjoy weekly, monthly and quarterly adventures.  You know, because we Embrace the Art of Living!

Our team also embraces giving back to the community through our Warm Wishes Campaign, a fiber arts project.

Ok let’s recap:

Shakeology_logo_with_tag_LRPart of *my* commitment to health is drinking Shakeology.  It’s my daily nutrient-filled awesome shake!
I started the journey with hesitation to spend money on myself.  After all, who hasn’t tried a program and had little to no reward?  I have!  So I started with a sampler pack and said – what the heck. Let’s try it for a week.  Shakeology 7-day Sampler Pack.
