Learning to embrace who I am and trying to find a balance.

Not looking for perfection, just balance.

My Program:
Primarily I am focusing on the foods I eat: learning to portion control, learning to make more healthy versions of classic fave's, learning to eat cleaner, and try new foods.
Every week I cook at least 5 of 7 days.
Secondly- I work hard at self love. I have a wonderful life, filled with amazing family and friends who love me no matter what size my jeans are. I am learning to do the same for myself.
Thirdly- Work towards moving more. I am not an exerciser, I dislike it, always have. I try for at least 10 minutes of increased heart rate movement every day. This needs work :)

Personal Information:
I am from a very rural area of the Mid-West, Missouri. Access to fresh produce and meats is abundant from local farmers markets. However, during off seasons, the lack of grocery options is tasking.

Other Information:
I am a knowledge junkie!! I love to read, research, attend school, listen, etc. I am trying to use that crave for knowledge to learn more about proper nutrition and health.
Reading labels has become my most favorite past time. It makes grocery shopping 3x's longer, but I enjoy it.

    I am SO GLAD you are still here! Things are going okay for me. The past 6 months were hard for me. I had to pack 17 years of stuff and move and it was SO STRESSFUL!! Now I am moved but live in a sea of boxes. My whole routine changed. I have gained back a little of my weight but I am no longer a slave to the scale. I live a healthier lifestyle and I am okay with weight variations as long as I eat right most of the time and exercise everyday. I hope you are doing well and feeling good! You know I am rooting for you always emoticon emoticon emoticon
