Here we are ladies!!  I, just like you, am SO excited to be embarking on the Healthy Role Models Autumn Journey!  This community of women is so full of support, inspiration, friendship and most importantly…LAUGHTER.    Seriously, not a day goes by that I don`t check in with these beautiful women.  Welcome!!  

A little about myself…I am the proud momma of two young adults, a grandma to the cutest little boy (with another on the way this Autumn), a wife to a very patient hubby,  the Operations & Accounts Manager for a local IT Management firm, as well as the Operations Manager for Healthy Role Models!    Yes, I wear many hats and I absolutely love it. <3   Whether it be multitasking, taking on a difficult project, an event or an obstacle…when I can streamline, organize and simplify…THESE things bring me happiness!!     If you need a job done, I am YOUR gal!     When I am not working, with my family/furbabies or working out, I can be found online planning my next vacation or shopping (Lulu…who doesn’t love Lulu).

 

My journey…Before finding Healthy Role Models I had lost my identity.  I did not love myself.  My weight had become so out of control that I was uncomfortable in my own skin.  I was ashamed and embarrased by the person looking back at me in the mirror.  I was in a vicious cycle.  I would work out and eat right for a few months only to find myself quitting, ending up back where I started with an extra few pounds to show for it.  You name it, I had tried it!  This went on for YEARS before I realized something was missing.  

I finally found the missing link when I took a chance with Healthy Role Models in the Autumn of 2014.  Thanks to the guidance of Sarah and the support of the ladies in the Healthy Role Models community, I learned that being healthy was so much more than just the physical changes.   Yes, there was a physical transformation but SO much of what I gained on the journey was what I needing on the inside. Health is 80% nutrition, 20% exercise and 100% attitude/ mindset.   I have learned to EMBRACE my PERFECTLY IMPERFECT self, to celebrate each and every win, and and the importance of putting myself at the TOP of my priority list.    And my greatest win?   I discovered myself again……..a confident, funny, caring person, friend and leader.  
 

Words can’t express my gratitude for Sarah and our Healthy Role Models community!!  To give back as a member of the HRM Team…My heart is full <3  
 

So enough about me…Cheers to the start of your Autumn Journey!   Your opportunity to set new goals, to grow, and to work on your beautiful ‘masterpiece’.
 

Are you ready to embrace those butterflies?  
 

xoxo  Michelle
