As I approached the age of 40 and began reflecting on my life, I recognized how out of balance my life was. Despite two good careers, we were just getting by. We were about to send our youngest of 4 kiddos off to kindergarten which meant I was gonna need to work more. Despite loving what I do as a Physical Therapist, the idea of working MORE made me feel anxious. I was working weekends at the time and was already beginning to miss events and sports as our family grew.
Then there was my physical health. I was struggling to get back in shape after four kids, trying to run again and battling injuries. I was tired, grumpy, impatient, not confident in my own skin, and stressed out by my endless to-do list. When I stopped to look around me, I realized we were making poor food choices. Our family was suffering from diseases, we lost several to cancer, and our own daughter was diagnosed with an auto immune thyroid disease at the age of 9. My patients had unexplained pain I was unable to resolve. Honestly, I just got fed up! There must be a solution.
Today, I focus on working smarter, focusing on what truly matters: MIND, BODY, SPIRIT, relationships, eating for health, faith, family, and fun. It’s not always easy, but it’s way better together. I don’t have all the answers, but I have the support and tools I need to FEEL better. I am in the best shape of my life, in all areas, in my 40s then I was in my 30s. If I can do this ladies, so can you! It is my mission to help empower other stressed out, tired, frustrated moms take control, make a difference in their lives, and help each of us become the best version of ourselves possible.
