I'm Lisa and I'm a certified Health Coach, Personal Trainer and a Corrective Exercise Specialist.
For years I fought a belief that I didn't have the time, the energy or the money to focus on healthy living. Today, I live a balanced lifestyle that fits with all the demands of real life!
So let's back up a bit.....
My Dad was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes before I was born, so there was a strong focus on 3 meals a day and balanced healthy meals. When I was young, we grew many of our own vegetables, raised our own chickens for cooking and for their eggs and made our own bread , but by the time I was a teenager things were very different. Many of our meals were processed and largely out of a box or a can. It seemed like we went from one extreme to the other.
When I turned 20, my parents divorced and I moved to "the city" hours away from them because I wanted to be a modeI. I ended up working in retail on minimum wage with a diet that consisted of Kraft dinner and any other inexpensive food I could fill up on. Over the next 10 years I battled bulimia, struggled with an addiction to sugar, survived cervical cancer and eventually started working at a gym. By the time I was 30, I was a single mom, That's when everything changed!!
The moment I gave birth to my son, I knew my purpose moving forward was be as healthy as I could be and to give him a healthy lifestyle habits. I started growing my own vegetables and making my own baby food. I found ways for us to have fun, play and get exercise without me going to a gym and without allowing him to indulge in excessive TV and video games. Being a single mom wasn't easy. Juggling long work hours and all the other demands that go along with parenting was tough but I was determined to give my son the best chance I could so I had to get creative.
Today we love to keep busy, be active, and eat REAL food! Balancing my lifestyle, my eating habits, my exercise mantra, and my overall mindset has brought me to where I am today. I lost my Dad in 2019 at the age of 81 which surprised many doctors who thought he would only live to be 35. He beat the odds of his disease ( or as he called it "an inconvenience") and his attitude toward life, and drive to keep moving was an inspiration to so many, especially me.
One of the last things he said to me was “Daughter, just keep having fun and keep being healthy!” I intend to do just that, and I hope that my knowledge, experience, education, and inner drive, will enable me to help others who are seeking a path to a healthier, more balanced lifestyle.
My belief is that "you don't find balance, you create it!"
