“If we all ate the same and exercised the same, our bodies would still look different from one another.” -Author Unknown
I had a high school gym teacher who was very motivating and always told us to work out, eat healthy, and that it is never too early or too late to start focusing on our wellbeing. I carried this passion with me on to college, and once I found the nutrition program there was no turning back. I fell in love with the idea that our body is a temple, and that we only have one life to live, so we better make it a good one.
Food has always been a big part of my life, as it is for most people. At every social gathering, holiday, or celebration, food has always been the centerpiece bringing everyone together. I LOVE FOOD! Food has always been there for me through all the good times, and the bad times. Unhealthy habits often arise as symptoms of trying times, and I developed some pretty unhealthy habits during the more stressful times in my life. I would be lying if I said I’m not emotionally attached to food, even knowing what I know now about healthy eating habits. I recognize this and work every day to become a little better, (and trust me when I say it is not a linear progression.)
