We’ve moved from Georgia to Florida to Texas and finally to Colorado. Once we got to the mile high city, we had a hard time breathing with all of the smoking that we were doing. We’d also gained a little weight as work and life happened. So in May of 2016, we both quit smoking, and we have been trying to get more healthy ever since.
I’m figuring out that there is a lot that I don’t know about the latest and greatest breakthroughs in nutrition news. Labeling can be confusing, and figuring out what is safe to feed your family can be overwhelming. I don’t have all of the answers, so buckle up as we research our way to knowledge.
I have a wonderful husband, Andy, and a gorgeous 12 year old daughter, Morgan. We also have 2 long haired chihuahuas that prove that evil can be terribly cute. We love our adopted state of Colorado, and we love being outside hiking and enjoying the views. When we get homesick for the northeast Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains, we find a hill to sit on and stare at the majesty of the Rocky Mountains.
In addition to running this blog, I also share DoTERRA essential oils with people who are serious about taking control of their health care in a more pro-active way. It matters what we eat, how we eat and how much exercise we get. With small changes here and there, we are sneaking our way to being more healthy and being more active. With the increased activity, we need to fuel our bodies with real food not processed junk. We are what we eat, and we need to be eating more healthy foods. We have a few resolutions for 2017 that we’re working on right now. We’re trying to eat 80% all natural foods and only 20% of a more processed food variety. We’re trying to get out and walk 4 nights a week. We’re trying to shed pounds by June. DoTERRA is helping us to achieve those goals.
