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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
