What Brought Me Here?
I decided to start this blog for many reasons but the biggest reason is to help others find the balance between nutrition and exercise when life gets in the way. It is something I have wanted to do for years now but have been held back by the fear of having my words out there for all to see and maybe even criticize. I decided though that embracing the fear is worth it if I can help others. So here it is. Here are my stories. Here is the knowledge that I have gathered over the years and my advice to you from the experiences that I have learned each day. It is my hope that my words will encourage you, help you, and enable you to live a more balanced life, or maybe just help you realize you're not alone in the struggles we face in trying to balance it all. Lets go down this journey together, finding hope and joy in ourselves. Take my hand and follow me down this crazy, messy, adventurous life and lets figure out this thing called balance!
Why The Name?
I am a practicing dietitian, practicing balance.
I am also a practicing wife, practicing dog mom, practicing Christian, practicing sister, practicing daughter, and practicing friend. Life is all about learning and practicing to be better than you were the day before isn’t it? Balance is one of those things that takes practice. Daily practice. It is about learning from your past mistakes or accomplishments and knowing that you don’t have to be perfect or an expert at it all. Life gives us second chances all the time and every day is a new day, a new opportunity, and a new shot at doing all the things we want to do or being the people we want to be. Some days feel like we have got it all down and then there are days where we feel like we just can’t seem to do anything right at all. That’s life. Everything takes practice and with practice comes trials and failures, but also comes success. Life is exciting that way and we are all in it together. We are constantly moving forward and falling behind, learning from each other and practicing to be better. Everyday we practice.
