Hi – thanks for dropping my my site! I’m Suzi and I live in Nova Scotia, Canada with my husband and two cats. I want to help you learn how to live a healthy life without taking it to the extreme, because life is too short to spend your time beating yourself up over eating a cookie or missing a workout.
My motto is simple:
Being healthy, isn’t about being perfect.
I don’t believe there is one type of eating plan that will work for everybody. I don’t think that there is one type of exercise or fitness class that will change the life of everyone who takes it.
We are all different, and therefore our bodies all respond differently to foods, and we all like and enjoy different forms of exercise so I will never tell someone to eat something or do a certain exercise to be healthy. I like to eat healthy foods, am a little bit obsessed with my juicer, and also dream about cheese and cupcakes.
There are a few reasons I started this site, one of them was to try and inspire and educate people. To help people realize that we are all fighting a battle, it’s just that some of those battles are harder to see than others. My battle is with fibromyalgia, a soft spot at the top of my left lung (which on occasion likes to spring a leak) and IBS. Three medical issues you wouldn’t normally associate with someone who exercises for a living. Sure it makes what I do difficult some days, but it is also a large part of the reason I chose to pursue this career.
I truly believe that if you put in the effort you can reap the rewards. I try to listen to my body and rest when I need to rest and spend the rest of the time kicking ass. 😉
What you’ll find here
My blog is a place for me to share my struggles and accomplishments. A place to provide a voice for others living with chronic health conditions to show that we can still live an active life. That our quality of living can be improved by eating well and exercising.
But that’s not all I’m about. I’m passionate about helping find people find their personal health cure through nutrition, fitness and self-care (which may include a few indulgences and kitten snuggles from time to time). While I don’t believe that there is one diet plan that will work for everyone, I do believe that a science-based nutrition program is right for MOST people, and allows each individual person the ability to eat in a way that best supports them (whether that is gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free) while ensuring they are eating enough macro-nutrients.
I’m also passionate about helping people restore balance to their parasympathetic nervous system through movement, nutrition, and stress management.
