Meet Tally

I’m a wife and mom of 2 awesome kids. If you would have told me a few years ago that I would love fitness and nutrition, I would have told you that you were crazy!  I didn’t like to exercise and I liked junk food a little too much. My meals all came from a box because it was easier and honestly, I didn’t know how to cook. Soon I found myself 50+ pounds overweight, depressed, uncomfortable in my own skin, and completely unhappy. I SHOULD have been happy. I had an adorable 2-year old boy and a beautiful 5-month old daughter, but I was miserable. I didn’t want to get out of bed and I absolutely hated the person I saw in the mirror. I felt like the worst housewife in the world and the most incompetent mom. I just knew I couldn’t do anything right. I was a failure…at least in my own eyes.

 

One day I woke up and decided it was time for a change. I was tired of being sick and tired. I wanted to change and be the best mom I could be and I couldn’t do that being unkind to myself.  I was embarrassed and afraid I would fail, but I worked hard…failing and picking myself back up along the way…and finally kicked 60 pounds to the curb! I I learned that nutrition is really the most important part of your new healthy lifestyle. You can exercise all you want, but truly feeling good, inside and out, depends on what you put into your mouth. Luckily, a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be boring or yucky. I have been working on clean eating now for years and have found delicious, healthy, clean recipes that your family can enjoy.  There are easy substitutions you can make to make your favorite meals a little healthier. A healthy lifestyle isn’t about deprivation, it’s about fueling your body with healthy, delicious foods to help you feel and perform your best.

 

My goal is to help other women be their most happy, confident, and healthy selves, sharing a little about my life and struggles along the way. 🙂
