Last winter, my wonderful husband, JJ and I went to visit his family in the big sky country of Montana. To seek relief from the cold, we decided to head for a local coffee shop with JJ's Mom and Grandma. Because JJ and I are not avid coffee drinkers, we decided to share a drink. (Something I have become famous for whenever we go out to eat or out for a treat.) I told him he could choose a drink of his choice. Before we got to the counter he told me he would be getting a delicious "White Chocolate Mocha." I nodded in agreement to his choice. When we got to the counter and they asked for our drink order, JJ could hardly get a word out before I said, "We'll take a Non-Fat Vanilla Latte with half the syrup, please!" We looked at one another in disbelief of my inappropriate outburst and laughed at my overly health conscious order.
I can honestly say my passion for good health and fitness started when I began my freshman year of college. Up until then, I was eating Totino's Pizza Rolls, Doritos and drinking Coca-Cola. During the first week of college I decided that this was the time I had to make a choice of whether or not I would be gaining the "freshman 15." Since then, I have made healthy living a priority of my life.
To me, sharing the simple things that make health and fitness fun, exciting and inexpensive is why this blog exists!
