After 25 years of exercising, making strides then having setbacks, and trying everything out there, I realized how little I knew my body because of how much I listened to the “experts”. I heard other women talk about how they wanted to be healthy…but had no idea how or what that meant. And, quite frankly, having graduated two children from homeschool and having one who will be a junior next fall, I finally had time to blog. Thus Almond Butter Babe was born.
I love to exercise. After lots of trial and error, causing many injuries, weight gain, and frustration along the way, I am learning to listen to my body. Nourish myself. Live life and enjoy indulging. But it’s been a long journey.
I now know that it’s okay to love iced coffee and dark chocolate. To be obsessed with almond butter. That the best thing you can wear is your smile. I’ve discovered Self-confidence is what makes a woman shine, and that real food can taste fabulous. And life is about far more than having that elusive six-pack.
So come back often. Share your thoughts. And let’s learn from one another.
Now excuse me while I get some iced coffee…and a bit of almond butter.
