5 Things about me

Hi everyone, I thought it was time to reintroduce myself.  Some of you know me and others are just getting to know me.  I’m usually a very private person so for me posting every week is hard.  I never was on social media until I became a health coach.  Thank you for being patient with me while I figure this social media stuff out.

Here’s 5 things you may not know about me.

  1. My first career was in the technology field. I spent over 20 years leading global software quality assurance teams and process reengineering projects.  Perfectionism was part of my job which lead into my life.  Now I work hard to accept imperfection.  Nothing is perfect and to try to achieve it can be exhausting or stressful.
  2. I love food! I really mean it! Eating and cooking are something I thoroughly enjoy.  For years I would follow diet trends and try to make them my own.  The problem with that is they were restrictive and not really fun.  Now I have lost all the diet restrictions and eat what I want.  I cook a lot and share my own personal recipes in my monthly newsletter.
  3. People sometimes think I’m too serious but I’m actually funny. I love joking around and playing pranks on my family.  Each year around Halloween I plan out scenarios to scare the crap out of my husband.  It is so fun, and he never knows its coming!
  4. I’m a nature lover. It all started when I was a child.  I played out in the woods a lot.  When I got older, I loved watching storms.  I would drive to the coast and watch the storms crashing into the shore.  The wind surfers were awesome to watch.  Today my absolute favorite place is the beach.  I don’t really watch storms anymore now I go to relax and ground myself.  The cyclical sound and motion that the waves make is very calming to me.
  5. I love dogs! There is something about it when you return home and this little furry guy is just so happy to see you.  They never hold a grudge against you.  Providing love and comfort is their main objective.  Studies have proven that having a dog makes you less stressed out and reduces your probability of having a heart attack.  I’ll take that any day.
