You can have your cake…

Since finding my passion in the fitness industry my approach to nutrition has changed significantly. I am often searching for healthy substitutes to create “clean” desserts and my favorite “body builder friendly” sweet treats. Not only is this totally possible but the results are surprisingly pleasing. The truth is that a few simple ingredient substitutes can…

One of THOSE moms…

There are two groups of people on social media that see me making much use of the new “eye roll” emoji on my iPhone. First culprits are the ones constantly bombarding us with displays of their “perfect” relationships. We get it, you’re in Turtle Dove and feel the need to justify it to the world…

To stay or to go…

I decided to wait until I had something to say that really mattered to me, as my first post for 2016. I have no New Year’s Resolutions. I have chosen rather to focus on an idea; a thought that I will try apply to all aspects of my life in 2016… To stay or to…

Starting a blog has turned out to be so much more daunting that I thought it would be. How do you compress your journey up to this point, without boring everyone into reading a massively detailed history…? So instead, I am taking a different approach.
