Staying in shape is hard when you are 62 and is a real challenge during a global pandemic.

Sure, I have been doing push-up challenges, running the stairs, and walking to the coffee shop in the wee hours. It’s not enough. One day I realized I was getting fit fat!

Fit fat, a hybrid form of healthy where my habits and goals weren’t aligning in the best possible way. I would still be considered healthy and fit by medical standards, but I know what’s up. A few extra pounds around my waist, less muscle definition, lax eating habits, and suddenly I just didn’t feel like the best version of me.

It’s not just looking and feeling great that matter to me; I want be well. This is about bullet-proofing my health to avoid getting sick and improving my odds of a positive outcome if I do. My goal is to put the wellness odds in my favor.

As the year winds down, we are ready to recalibrate the behaviors that got sloppy this year making us feel fit fat. Those little daily habits that can add up to wellness gold if used properly.

My goal for this year is Healthy & Happy!

I invite you to join me in a guided 21-Day Detox & Reset. A proven and effective program for detoxing heavy metals, harmful bacteria, environmental toxins, and parasites that cause inflammation and make us feel crappy. This is a comprehensive detox that includes learning delicious new ways to cook and eat, improve sleep, hydrate better, and dial down stress.

There is a little pre-work. Detoxing our kitchens from all that holiday bad stuff and restocking with the right things. Taking a break from a relentless year. Aligning our intentions with the worthy goal of being the best possible version of ourselves. A lot can happen in 21 days when we are committed and excited to embrace positive change.

I am a passionate advocate for food as medicine, life navigator and culinary coach. This is my space for sharing what excites, inspires and motivates me to live my best life. It began as a recipe blog for nourishing, simple, weekday meals and has become something much bigger… a guide to resilient wellness. I am excited to share my knowledge of how daily habits can cumulatively help you to live like you mean it and age like you want to.
