Wherever you go, always bring your own sunshine

About Me

Born and raised in Beantown (well, 12 mi north!), I’m a girl who loves livin’ the city life but will take any sunny day to hit the beach.  I love sports and will frequent as many Patriots and Red Sox games as possible in a given season.   A few things in life that make me happy:  my parents, my sister, my friends, my home, wine, martinis, veggies, pizza, cheese, olives and Mexican food 🙂  I’m a girl who has always had an interest in health and nutrition, and have continued a love of learning more!  I recently joined a fabulous team of girls in an online community called TONE IT UP.  TIU was created by 2 fabulous women, Katrina Hodgson and Karena Dawn.  (toneitup.com)  It’s a diet plan/workout regimen that emphasizes the importance of CLEAN eating & getting in your sweat sessions.  Thru this team I have continued to learn about my passion for health and fitness & created amazing friendships in the mean time!   Also this past year I have started running.  While I once couldn’t even run a mile, I have worked my way up and have a 10 miler race in DISNEY in sept 🙂  Once I conquer that race, a half marathon won’t be too far behind!

I created this blog to journal my journey to a healthier lifestyle, of weight loss, toning, & just being the BEST version of me I can be!  Weight loss has always been a struggle for me….I’ve never been the “skinny girl” and I have yo-yo dieted my entire life.  Some people have a “pre baby” or “high school” weight as their goal.  As for me, I have never really had a “pre happy” weight.   Despite the fact that I have always worked out in gyms and eaten pretty healthy, I never had the body type that people would know that by just looking at me.  But I’m sick of  “starting over” every few months!  I’m determined to be the healthiest “me” & happiest I can be in my clothes, regardless of what that number on the scale says.  I also want to use this blog to track my runs/ training schedule & keep myself accountable.  This is a HUGE goal that means A LOT to me, so I would love to be able to look back on my journey and relive it at any time.   I LOVE hearing when I have motivated or inspired someone to do something, so I hope that this blog continues to do that.  I might as well help other people along the way of my journey to the “best Stephy I can be”.

Thanks for reading!
