Let me share a little about myself ❤️

Hi, I’m Teresa.

Hello, if you’ve stumbled across my blog, welcome! Let me tell you a little bit about myself and the purpose of this website.

My name is Teresa. I am first and foremost a mom to 8. My husband and I have been married for coming up on 25 years. He is my knight in shining armor and is now my solid partner.

I am one of the co-founders of the website In its heyday, JustMommies was a booming community for moms and wannabe moms. Forums have since gone by the wayside. While the site still exists I (as well as my sister, the other co-founder) are no longer the owners. If you’re bored, you can check out the Wayback machine. It is one of my greatest accomplishments and I am very proud of the work I did on it.

For my day job, I work as an RN in a small community hospital on a hybrid unit. I’m cross trained in many areas and I love what I do.  I work full time and I do a whole lot of juggling to get it all done.

I love nursing and helping people, but also see many gaps in our health care system.

I am certified as a personal trainer and nutrition coach through NASM. I am also a level 1 certified run coach through RRCA. This is primarily a hobby at this time and I’m not completely decided yet on which direction I want to go with that. My time is valuable and the time it would take to commit to one on one coaching might be cost prohibitive to the population I’d like to reach.  I do not rule out adding one on one coaching services to my website in the future. 

I am an RN with a Masters Degree in Leadership which gives me a unique advantage in guiding you on your health journey. I hope to provide you with quality content on lowering your risk for diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

My hobbies include running, yoga, and strength training. I have ran marathons, half-marathons, 5Ks, 10Ks, and some other odd distances. I’ve completed a few sprint triathlons, but I’m not a very strong swimmer.

My faith and spiritual life are important to me. So, you will see some articles and blog posts referencing my faith. I believe in tolerance and compassion and hope that my behavior will someone resemble the person I am trying to be. 

I follow a plant-based diet. I started that about 2 years ago as well.  This blog will contain lots of articles on the benefits of a plant-based diet as well. I hope my pictures will tell the story of the muscle you can still build with the power of plant-based protein.

I am happy to share mine and what has made me successful, but everyone’s journey is different. You will have to discover your own path.

I hope this gives you a little info about me. I’d be delighted to hear any feedback you have about my site and any requests for blog posts or topics you’d like me to discuss as well.
