Meet Jessica

At 45 I was at a restaurant with a friend having dinner & drinks.  On the patio there was a man having his 50th birthday party.  Looked like a lot of fun but as I watched him I thought to myself when I turn 50 I want to be as fit as I’ve ever been.  Then my journey began to be my “fittest at 50”.

My friends laughed and made fun but I didn’t care I was quirky, stubborn and determined.  It was a roller coaster ride filled with laughs and tears; yo-yo weight fluctuations; soreness; 2 surgeries, friends made and lost; habits realized and changed/changing; depression & anxiety; etc.  You name “it” . . . I did “it” or experienced “it”.

I am 53 currently.  Did I reach my goal(s) or did my goals change?  Follow me and find out . . .

Live, love, laugh often as they say and Live With Passion (TR quote).

Health & Fitness is a lifestyle.  Don’t do a different but the same diet . . . starving and depriving yourself; missing out on foods/things; crazy strict diet; killing yourself in the gym.

No matter what shape you are in today . . . just one change at a time is all that is needed.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Your friend & Coach, Jessica

Don’t Judge a Book by it’s Cover – Yes, I’m what people consider Petite . .  5’1” 1/4 and 120 lbs 18% BF.  I look fit and healthy and people always think I’m lucky . . . like I’ve magically been this way my entire life. That my genetics are magical.  Little do they know I haven’t had a healthy relationship with food until about a year ago.  Since high school I’ve been as much as 138 lbs and as low as 115 lbs.  Mostly wavering between 120-132 lbs.  Due to my thyroid issues, it is a problem increasing and decreasing weight so much so it has not been easy.  It effects my moods, anxiety, ability to handle stress, sinus infections, hives, and stomach issues.  I have been the Queen of Self-Sabatoge but have been slowly changing that
. . . one habit at a time.
