As a wellness coach and mentor, I am constantly looking for ways I can better support other women in their pursuit of honoring their health, taking better care of themselves (and their families), and living their best lives.

You name it, we take care of it. And often that means we put ourselves and our own needs last. I quickly found, though, when I neglected myself and especially my nutrition, I didn’t have as much to give.
A question I get asked ALL the time by challengers and other people I talk to is, “Should I take a rest day?” I used to ask the same question too, so I thought I’d share a little insight on the matter.
Is a Rest Day Essential?
So to answer the question in one word – YES!!! Yes, you need a rest day for a couple of very important reasons. Continue reading
Whether you found my page as a nursing mama wanting to get fit or an individual recovering from an eating disorder? or just someone looking for a little encouragement and maybe a few easy recipes, I am so glad you are here. And I’d love to tell you a little bit more about what it is that I really do as a wellness coach and ambassador for change!
