The cocktail party last night was a blast. It is really nice that everyone is so relaxed and easy to talk to.I’m so thankful for all the new friends I am making at Healthy Living Summit.

I started this blog back in March, after changing my lifestyle and losing about 45 pounds. My new found fit life was starting to leave the realm of healthy and happy, and enter a more dangerous area of obsession and depression. I credit this blog and the blogging community with showing me how to have a healthy relationship with food and my body.

What I love about blogging is how honest it makes me with myself and how it forces me to constantly be challenging myself in new ways. Someone here at HLS said to me that I have a baby blog. And this is very true! I am still very new at this and over the last month have really started to find my voice in the blogging world. What you will find here are daily posts sharing what has kept my healthy and grounded that day. Whether it be food, exercise, a night out, or a good book. The best is yet to come and I hope you stop by again!

Of the few posts I have had, here are some of my favorites so far:

My Food Philosophy – Part 1: Clean Eating

My Before and After

First Music Monday – a new feature


My First Recipe

Sweet Potato Spread


Complete Upper Body Attack
