I am a Critical Care Registered Nurse in a busy trauma ICU. I am also a Certified Life Coach and a Reiki Master. I love spending time with my amazing husband whether we're hanging out, playing guitar, taking walks, or laughing at our cats.
I have been riding and training horses for most of my life and consider that to be my greatest passion. However, I do find much enjoyment in cooking, practicing yoga, helping people in all aspects of life, and working on my website.
I am a very goal oriented person and am constantly evaluating and re-evaluating my goals and and my achievements. I am once again on the weight loss journey. About 4 years ago I went from 160 lbs to 117 lbs in about one year. I felt and looked fabulous. Then....life happened and I went through a divorce, my parents moved 1800 miles away, and I was working 4 jobs.
I was still fairly lean, but the pounds gradually crept back. After meeting my wonderful husband, I really relaxed how I ate and now I am back to where I started 4 years ago plus 10 lbs. My husband loves me and loves my body no matter what size I am or what I weigh.
My wake up call was January 6, 2012 when I stood on the scale at my doctor's and it read 171 lbs. I felt ashamed and disappointed that I let myself fall back into old habits and that I was treating my body with such disregard. My body has been good to me now I must be good to it.
So here I am. Ready to get back on track and ready to slay the demons that I have allowed to sabotage my once healthy lifestyle and body.
