Anyone who follows a blog likes to know about the person behind the pages and thoughts. So here’s my story.
Hey! My name is Michele! I am currently twenty-six years old, and hold a BA in Biology and Nutrition & Food Sciences from the University of Vermont. Although my transcript shows several notable achievements, such as being the recipient of the Hannah Howard Award (4.0 GPA here!), and having membership into Phi Beta Kappa, what it doesn’t show is the struggles I’ve had to face to get there.
If you followed my previous blog, you would have seen that I’ve had many struggles which have contributed and worsened my battles with anorexia throughout my college experience. And although I went through them all on my last blog, I’m not going to on this page. Let me just say, it’s been quite the adventure dealing with Type 1 diabetes, food allergies, divorce, and even my own battles with anorexia all in less than seven years.
Why not you may ask?
I’ve realized that its silly to look back on the past as you can’t change what happened. You can try, but you can’t turn the tables and re-live the moments you missed out on.
So why continue to be paralyzed by the past, and overwhelmed by the future?
Why not just take it day by day and see where your life may go next?
Why focus on the bad times when you should focus on the better times ahead?
My Story Today
I’m not going to go through it right now, but what I do want to go through quickly is the fact that I eventually found my way to IIFYM and strength training. And that it did help in so many ways that I never imagined it would. Despite my struggles today, I know there will be far less next year.
So the reason I’m dwelling on this is the fact that making changes has led me to discovering a better life than I ever thought could be. A life in which I am no longer trying to dwell on my battles, but rather finding the better person who I was always supposed to be.
And I think you deserve to get the life you want as well.
So I’m taking you along with me on my life adventures as I would have liked someone to do for me. Fitness, food, fashion, DIY, Travel…I do it all. Come along with me!
With Love Always,
