Hi, I’m Monique, and thank you for visiting my blog! I have a variety of hobbies and interests that have, over the years, shaped the person I am now. Living a happy healthy life is important to most. I hope that you can find practical advice about fitness, nutrition, natural hair care, nerd and geek entertainment, and juggling family and work life. Obviously, I have a lot to say. As I attempt to accomplish my dreams and goals I hope to help others along the way.
I grew up in Eastern North Carolina. While in high school I met my husband and shortly after I graduated from college we got married and had a son. I am currently a Physical and Health Education teacher. I like all different activities including yoga, jogging, lifting weights, and dancing. For about 3 years I was even a Zumba Fitness instructor.My husband and I have been married since 2013, but before marriage we were together for 6 years. During that time I learned a lot about myself and how to love myself. I am a working wife and mother. I am allergic to wheat, dairy, peanuts, and eggs (although only severely to dairy so I usually ignore the others). I have a thick afro, that my husband refers to as a lions mane. And I am a fan of superheroes, anime, Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. My experiences have made me who I am now. Growing up I had low self-esteem because I had always been overweight. It caused me to do many things, that for a long time I regretted. But I don’t anymore. Now I know who I am and who I want to be.
