Hi! I’m so excited to have you here! I’m Shanell. I’m a wife, a mom, a sister, a friend, a neighbor and an imperfect person who tries to live and promote a healthy way of living so I can enjoy the blessings of this life and help others do the same. You’ll find as you view my current posts as well as in posts to come that everything I do is because I have and love my family. My kids are crazy, but I love them! Life is busy, hectic, snotty, and poopy. It’s always full of adventure, fun, smiles, tears, road trips, sickness, and ups and downs, but all in all, it’s a blessing. I truly believe that we’ve all been given the opportunity to make the most of our surroundings and enjoy life. It’s been a long journey and a steep learning curve for me to get to where I am and who I am today, so I hope what I share can help you understand and enjoy your journey a little more too. You can learn more about my story here.
Here on this blog I try and share some of the things I have learned about nutrition, cooking, fitness, being a mom, being a wife, and becoming an overall better person. I believe that being “fit” or “healthy” is more than just eating healthy foods, being a fitness junkie, looking good in a swim suit, or even looking like a super model. Nope…I’ve never, ever in my life fallen for that. It’s more than that to me. It’s a combination of many things: eating healthy foods, being in control of your appetites and desires, getting proper exercise, spending time with people that you love and care about, including God, our Heavenly Father, as well as our Savior Jesus Christ. Balance is everything. This is being “fit”. This, to me, is being “healthy”.
Go ahead and browse through some of the things I’ve shared so far. Send me an email with questions, suggestions or even ideas you might have to help keep each other in check. I’d love to hear from you! Please remember, I’m not perfect. I’m just trying to be me, trying to be REAL. Now please enjoy some “selfies” below. 😉
