Join Me {Health and Happiness}

In college I hit the gym pretty regularly and was pretty healthy. As soon as I started working, I really struggled with making time for exercise every day. I noticed my body changing and so I joined a 12 week challenge at the gym I went to. I figured that my competitive nature would motivate me to make big changes so that I would see a big difference. I even spent quite a big chunk of money on a personal trainer.

Long story short, I learned (very quickly) that I don't do personal trainers. I felt pushed into making changes, I felt judged, and I honestly do not like people telling me what to do. I didn't make or see many changes and I was resistant at every turn. Now, that I'm a bit older and still struggling to make some changes, I want support but I don't want authoritative support. I want friendship, support, and accountability. Every group I see that offers this is run on Facebook. Groups of women get together....they are sharing tips, recipes, workouts, and sharing their struggles as well. They help one another along a journey to being healthier. I don't have Facebook (and won't get Facebook) so I continually miss out on these opportunities.

I've decided to start my own group and I have some big plans in mind. This group will be a private group on Google+. Don't let Google+ scare you, it's really easy to navigate and use--and I can help you if you need it.

I'd love for you to join. I have some awesome ideas for recipe swaps, themes, positive discussions, and more! If you are interested please comment with your email address or send me an email at and I'll get this group started.
