I am an…Entrepreneur & World Explorer, Nature Lover, Fitness, Business and Life Coach, Natural Foodie, Yogi, Reader and Passionate Photographer. I Love wine and laughter with family & friends…and am lucky enough to be married to the man of my dreams

I am 39 as I type this, I am Cali girl that is currently in Costa Rica. I try to live with no regrets so I do most things other won’t. It has made my life pretty amazing and although I love to travel I have tried to create a life I don;t need a vacation from.

A bit about my journey… I guess I am what most people would have called a yo-yo’er. I was always very fit and healthy in high school and when I went away to college in 1996, I didn’t just gain the freshmen 15, more like the freshman 40. After college I got back home and stared at a gym, eating right and lost weight again in 2001. About this time I got a serious boyfriend for the next several years put on weight and was bigger girl for the second time in my life.

We broke up and I went down to Costa Rica in 2005, while there I lost about 30 pounds and was back to being fit, happy and healthy once again.  It was that trip in 2005 in Costa Rica where I meet my now husband. We meet just for one night at an Eco lodge where I was a volunteer and he was guide. When he left I had no way to contact him and thought I would never see him again but a few months later on the other side of the country we saw each other again. It was love at first sight and with moves and adventures here we are, living our fairytale every day.

Sorry, got a bit off topic. Anyways, moved to Costa Rica in 2007 and started working as a tour guide. Spent the next 3 years slowly gaining weight – probably close to 50 pounds! YIKES!!!!! When we got engaged all I kept thinking about was the little white Dress. In 2010 I ordered Turbo jam and started working out for that wedding dress and was doing o.k. but then I broke my ankle and everything just stopped. I now had the excuse that I couldn’t work out because I was hurt! With vacation, wedding, honeymoon the food I was eating was basically anything i wanted….I was spinning out of control.

In was Dec. 2010 when I was out exploring with the hubby. We had rented this buggy type thing and I hated getting in and out of it. I honestly for the first time felt like I was too big for something and it crushed me. at the last waterfall we stopped for a picture and I will never forget how I felt when I SAW myself. That person in the phot0 – that was not me! I was not that fat girl…but I was.

January 2011, I ordered P90X and began a journey that I will never stop and never quit. I am down over 50 pounds and FEEL AMAZING. I am still traveling, loving life and trying to help others do the same. Life is to short to love it, live, and soak it all in!!

I would love to help you too! Lose weight, Get Balanced, Nutrition,  Start a Business, Get your sexy back – whatever you need help with – I AM HERE TO HELP!!!
