After reading over a dozen healthy living blogs almost every day for the past several years, I couldn’t wait any longer to get my own. Don’t get me wrong — I love my blogs (visit my “Blog Friends” page to check out the ones I consider the best around), but I felt like I was missing something and I couldn’t find a blog that really spoke to my lifestyle.
I work in an office environment in one of the most stressful, intense professions out there. I’m constantly reminded how much I make health a priority in my life because of how much I stick out like a sore thumb in the office. I can’t remember the last time someone looked at my tupperware at work and didn’t ask, “What is THAT?!”. The look on their faces when I answer “homemade cashew milk”, “protein shake” or “turkey meatballs with spaghetti squash” is priceless! They usually follow up with a comment or question about how I find the time, how “lucky” I am not to have kids (read: time) or that I’m lucky that I’m young and still have a fast acting metabolism.
And thus, this blog was born. Although it is true that I don’t have children, I don’t have a ton of time and I am involved in a lot of work, Bar Association and community activities that take up a lot of my time. I also have a wonderful husband, immediate and extended family whom I love to spend time with almost every day. I’ve just figured it out. I’ve figured out a way to make it work – for me. For my household. That doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for you and yours, but at least I can provide an example of how I (try) to make it work. An example of my failures, so that they don’t become your failures. I struggle to make it all work and I certainly don’t succeed all of the time. I, too, am under a budget and am always aiming to spend less while purchasing more. My goal is to embark on this adventure together, and have this blog serve as inspiration, a sounding board, and a conversation starter.
I hope you will join me and follow along on this adventure to live a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle, all without losing your job — or while still billing, if you’re an attorney! : )
