Why do I write about health and fitness??? Good question!!!
My journey to health and fitness started after I had my first daughter at 19, I didn’t pay much attention to anything healthy up until that point in my life. At 19 I started weight lifting, rollerblading and running, I was instantly hooked! I loved the way exercise made me look and feel, for the first time in my life I felt fit and healthy.
I loved health and fitness so much I became a certified personal trainer at 20. I loved training clients but I wanted to make more of an impact in the health field so I decide to go back to school to become a registered nurse. At 28 I graduated from nursing school and began working at St. Francis Hospital on an open heart unit. I fell in love with cardiac nursing and eventually moved on to my current job in home health care as a tele-health nurse (basically, I set up monitors that transmit a patient’s blood pressure, heart rate, weight, and oxygen level to our office daily so we can try to prevent re-hospitalization). Home health nursing allows me to educate patients on their disease processes (diabetes, heart failure, hypertension, etc.) and through this education I can give them the tools to lead the healthiest life possible.
I love educating and inspiring people to live a healthier life and this is the number one reason why I write about health. In my field of work I see first hand what happens to people that neglect their health and if I can inspire or educate even just one person to live a healthier life then I am happy. I am lucky enough to get to do this everyday in both my full-time career as a nurse and through my blog. Unfortunately I cannot help everyone, but I always do the best I can every single day.
I write about health to educate, motivate and inspire others to live a healthier life!!!
