{Disclaimer – as it is still my first week of blogging, this page is a work in progres…thanks for understanding and sticking with me!}

I’ve read so many food/fashion blogs over the years that I thought I’d join in!  I’m hoping to motivate the reader, as well as myself, to take chances and most of all, have fun.

My story is similar to most of the women whose blogs I read daily.  I swam competitively from age 6 until I was 18.  During those years, I was able to eat anything and everything I wanted because I was burning so many calories.  Well, when it came time to picking colleges, I decided that I was absolutely done with swimming.  I went to St. Joe’s, who coincidentally does not have a swim team, and found out the hard way that I had no idea how to eat!  I gained the freshman 15 and then some.  It wasn’t until junior year that I got myself back on track.  I had to learn how to work out not in a structured, team environment, but on my own.   Slowly I learned, and am continuing to learn.  I don’t work out every day, and I don’t cook every day (eek!).

I do not eat fanatically healthy.  I pretty much eat what I want, when I want – in moderation.  Does that mean that I’m at my goal weight?  Not at all.  But I do know when I need to kick it up a notch in the work out department.  Working out does not come naturally for me….at all.  I struggle every day with knowing I should go, but not wanting to go at all.   However, when I get there, I make sure every minute counts.
