I am a mom to 3 boys and I homeschool the two youngest ones. The oldest boy is now in college so one down, two to go. I’m also a total badass wife who never complains and I’m always cheerful first thing in the morning, greeting my husband with a hot cup of coffee and a smile (This part is a big fat lie but it’s fun to pretend so let’s just go with it.) My husband and I co-own a gym together, JS Strength and Conditioning, in Chico, CA. I love to train my clients, however, the majority of my days are spent at home with my boys focusing on laughing more than yelling and loving more than loathing. I also happen to be a national best selling author of several books about Paleo nutrition; however, “Paleo” does not define me. Not even one tiny bit, it’s just a chapter of my life – and a great jumping off point for folks not wanting to die from eating crap, lack of sleep, and letting stress rule their lives.
I founded the Everyday Paleo website several years ago but this blog is me and only me and the ramblings that come out of my brain faster than I can keep a hold of, ready to be spewed at you whether you like it or not. Here you’ll find my thoughts. My thoughts on life, food, fitness, spirituality, love, and whatever at the moment I want to share with you. You’ll find recipes to nourish your body and hopefully advice and ramblings to nourish your soul.
As I get older, I realize that every year I am redefined, every moment shapes me, every experience molds me into something that I never thought I could be and sometimes in ways I don’t want to be, and often in ways I wish I was before; but that’s what makes me – me. My biggest goal in life is to leave a mark. I want to die rest assured that my kids know just how much I love them. I want to live my life being true to the people who love me the most, like that husband of mine who puts up with me like no one else ever could. I want people to remember me because I helped. I want people to be happier and I want to be happier too, so I’m exploring how to stay sane in this crazy world while working hard to be a bright shining light despite the dark. Let’s figure this out together. I’ll write about what has helped my clients and what helps me, and I want you to tell me what you think and what you need and let’s create a better way to live, one crazy day at a time.
Here are my books:
