In October 2017 I was Diagnosed with Celiac Disease (must eat gluten-free medically). I had struggled for years trying to live a healthy life style and have had great success periodically, unfortunately because of this unknown health issues the weight never stayed off. Through blood work and endoscope I was FINALLY diagnosed, the damage to my intestines shows I have been sick for most my life, it gives so much clarity now. I decided to move forward positively and start taking control of my life and health with better understanding of my body!
In April 2019 I was hospitalized for “Myopericarditis” (inflammation and fluid on my heart) this was a scary time for me as I was working out daily and it caught me completely off guard. It was slow recovery but I didn't let it slow me down. By August I was given a complete full bill of health and no heart damage occurred. I am and will continue to work towards a healthier me!
I love staying active this includes lifting weights, cardio, yoga and stretching along with various other physically activities like dancing, walks, biking, hiking, kayaking, swimming and more!
I'm married to my absolutely amazing husband, we’ve been together since we were 15 years old and he’s my biggest supporter, the love of my life and my best friend. We have 3 beautiful daughters that are our greatest gift and joys of our life. Everything I do, I do for my family and for ME!
I share my journey socially because if my story and journey can help someone else know they can reach their goals, give them strength to get through the hard times and know they can keep pushing I am happy to share!
