Living Green Lives is a place for me to share with you my tips and tricks for feeling totally fantastic – emotionally and physically. A turning point for me in my healthy lifestyle journey was starting to work with my friend and registered nutritionist, Roslyn Gordon, to help run a nutrition series which she has developed that helps people lose weight and feel better in general. Since completing the H2H Weight Loss Series myself in May 2011, I have more energy, am more patient with my kids and sleep better. The lessons I learned in those six weeks have changed how our family eats, feels and enjoys each other for the better in many ways.
My oldest son is 7 years old. He is a shining star. His positive energy and enthusiasm for life are amazing gifts that will take him far in life. His compassion for his family, friends and animals is constant in times of celebration as well as in times of sorrow. His hugs are healing. He loves to be in the “middle” of snuggles and we love that he will run across the room to get there. He made me a mother and for that I will always be grateful.
My youngest son is 4 years old. He brings so much love into our lives. He is thoughtful and caring which he shows to us every day by making us gifts of Lego and beautiful pictures that he has drawn. He is an artist. His strong will and fierce determination coupled with is beautiful gift of compassion teaches me how to listen. I love to see life through his eyes.
My husband and I met 14 years ago. When we met, I had three criteria for the man of my dreams – 1. He must love his mother; 2. He must have a smart brain; and 3. He must love to dance! Check, check and check!!! I love how he loves me. He treats me like a princess but always keeps me grounded. He is my voice of reason and best friend.
These are the people I live for and my inspiration for everything related to Living Green Lives. I hope this blog brings alternatives, insight and clarity into your lives. I look forward to sharing this journey with you!
