Hi, my name is Lisa and I am 56 years young. I have been married for 27 years and have 4 grown children, 3 boys and a girl. I have also been blessed with 5 grandchildren, 3 boys and 2 girls. I am also ‘mom’ to several fur and feather babies, which includes a dog, a cat and 12 chickens.
My husband and I live in Kissimmee, Florida, and hope to travel the country when we retire.
I starting my fitness and nutrition journey back in early 2012,
Life was more than I could handle. I had been dished out more than my fair share of hurt and heartbreak. I was afraid to answer the phone or check the mail or watch the news because just one more catastrophe just may push you over the edge?
In just one year in 2009. My mother was fighting cancer, we lost our house to a fire, Then had to go through the rebuild process and meanwhile lived in a 27-foot camper. My husband lost his job, Then found comfort from another woman, my mother soon passed away, my teenage boys were well…. They were being Teenagers. Understandably not wanting to be at home. The stress was taking its toll on my health. and to beat it all I was premenopausal. My diet was terrible I mean with all of this going on who had time or energy to cook and eat healthy? Fast food (KFC) was my go too.
I was suffering from it all. I could see in the mirror a constant reminder of how stress and my hormones were affecting my body. I was in pain both mentally and physically. I had heart palpitations, Insomnia, and Stomach problems, and Joint pain.
Out of a list of 15 possible problems that stress could cause I had 12 of them. And a list of menopause symptoms was just as bad. It was only a matter of time before serious illness would set in.
I knew I had to do was to start taking better care of myself. That’s always the first thing the Dr. Tells you. Stress is best treated with exercise.
I will add photos and stories here so you will get to know me as a friend as well as a coach and business women.
