Welcome to my new blog!
Hey there! Welcome to my new blog! I'm so excited you've stopped by today and I hope you enjoy your time hangin' out with me. It's brand spankin' new, so you're probably wondering what it's all about and why you should keep coming back. So, let's chat.
Let me take a moment to introduce myself first. Then I hope that you'll leave me a comment or send me a message to tell me a bit about yourself too!
My name is Angie and I'm a stay at home mom of 6 kids with a wonderful husband who supports all my crazy. Thank goodness for him! Who knows where I'd be otherwise?
We live in a small town outside of another small town in Utah about an hour south of Salt Lake City. But I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma - which wasn't near any other towns. So, I'm a small town girl through and through.
A Few of My Favorite Things
Some things I really enjoy are music, reading - but only easy reads like the Beyonders series (Soooo good! If you haven't read it, you totally should), cooking, finding the bright side of things, and working out and TRYING to eat healthy. I'll probably chat a bit about most of these topics to some extent here, but for the most part, we're primarily focusing on living a healthy lifestyle.
Why a "Healthy Lifestyle" and not a fast track fitness guide?
Well, it's really easy to get caught up in the weight loss trap. We yo yo diet. We push harder than we should and then crash. OR we hop on to fads that do in fact help us lose weight, but then we feel yucky overall because it wasn't really treating our bodies right.
I always say, it doesn't matter how much you weigh if you feel terrible when you get there. So I focus on healthy and proven ways to lose weight for the long term without missing out on your entire life in the process. (Because when it's a lifestyle, you've got to have wiggle room to celebrate life with your friends and family. Am I right?)
I'll be sharing ideas to help you lose weight in a healthy sustained way - which, by the way, doesn't necessarily mean slow. And if you'd ever like to work more closely with me to dial in your efforts and see some sustainable results, don't hesitate to contact me or click the link to work with me and we'll get you set up with a plan that will work for you!
I'm excited to get this blog going, and I'm excited to get to know you soon too!
