Trying to live a healthy life is hard!
Are you a busy lady (like me) who really, really wants to live a healthy life? You know, getting to a healthy weight, eating meals with actual veggies on your plate, working out like all the fitness ladies you see on Instagram? And also doing crazy things like getting more sleep (’cause you know you need it!), drinking more water, and maybe meditating or doing yoga?
I get it because I’m obsessed with living my best life too. And, probably like you, I have a ton of enthusiasm for making healthy changes, but often struggle to stick with these things until they are a habit.
I’m Jacqui, by the way, and I’m the crazy busy mom behind this blog.
If you want to learn more about me, and how I lost over 86 pounds nine years ago, all the deets, my best weight loss tips, and icky before pictures, are in this blog post: How I Lost 86 Pounds and How You Can Learn From My Mistakes
Planning is the key to making healthy changes…and making them stick.
I don’t have all the answers, but I do know that PLANNING a healthy life is the key to making these changes we want – and making those changes stick.
You know how you get super motivated to do something like lose weight and THIS TIME it’s for real? So you write your goal on a pink sticky note, because duh, we’re told to write our goals down. But life happens, and soon that pink sticky note with “I will lose 15 pounds” is crumpled in a drawer and you don’t find it until you’re searching for super glue six months later…
Planning healthy changes takes a little more effort than writing random goals on sticky notes, but it also doesn’t have to be hard. On this blog I’ll share some of my best tools, techniques and tips to help you make the healthy changes you want to make. And have fun doing so.

Shortcuts are My Specialty
I’m always looking for ways to eat clean, shop smart, stay fit, and be motivated without my healthy choices taking up my entire life. I have other important things to do, like hang with my family, play guitar, lust after Jon Bon Jovi and read trashy novels.
