Hello and Welcome!

Where should we begin... Ah yes, who am I, what is this blog about, and why should you spend you're valuable time with me! I have a passion for nutrition and fitness, and will share all I know and learn from here on out with you! I am starting this blog in the attempt to document my journey, and I hope you'll find it to be one worth following... My ultimate goal is that we will learn something about ourselves in the process.

I'm Erin Michaela, a born and bred Jersey girl who spends every weekend she can up in the Green Mountains of Vermont. I am inching up on the big 3-0 and need to reignite my passion for living due to a monotonous job that I am itching to leave behind in the pursuit of happiness, creativity, and purpose. I have a soft coated wheaten named Finnegan who is a joy (and a pain, as a young puppy can be!) I love to snowboard and hike, any day spent outside is a good one. I bleed Villanova Blue and love the New York Giants. I am newly married, and am looking forward to the future.

I began this year with the resolution to live a healthier life. I have struggled with weight for most of my life (although, sometimes I get told the struggle is only in my mind). In 2010 I fell of the gym wagon and lost most of my willpower against sweets, fried foods, and everything else! Needless to say after the ball dropped on New Year's Eve I made up my mind: THIS WOULD BE THE YEAR! I would finally stop worrying about what the scale said and instead listen to what my body was telling me.

I hope you'll join me on what promises to be a most exciting and healthy year!
