Hello! Welcome to my blog page. My name is Maria and I have been on a journey of health, wellness and self discovery for a couple of years now…and it has been quite a ride!
I am a busy mom, working full time and also going to school studying to be a health coach. I have a passion for living a happy, healthy, fulfilling life – doing what I love and having fun! And I truly believe natural, healthy, whole foods are the key to doing just that.
I have over 100 lbs. to lose – which at times seems like a huge mountain to climb, and for the longest time I did not want to even try. I was just content to hang out at the base of the mountain and look up – willing to sit out and wonder if what was at the top would bring me happiness.
Over the past several years, I have been working with an amazing health coach who has helped me realize I can get to the top of that mountain if I want – but that is not really what is most important. It is the journey that matters.
So here we are – on a journey. Ready to share stories, recipes, ideas and life experiences. So buckle up, and come along…it may be a bumpy ride, but we will have fun and hopefully we will all learn ways to live healthier and be happier in the process!
“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
