Get to Know Me
Hi - I'm Jackie.
My family is everything to me. I'm wife to my husband of 14 years and mom to my 12-year old son and 5-year old daughter. They are the center of my life. Over the years, I've learned that I have to prioritize my own health if I want to be the best wife and mom I can be.
But it wasn't always that way.
I struggled with disordered eating and excessive exercise for a long time. It was all-consuming. However, when my son was born with a rare genetic syndrome, I knew things had to change. Being healthy took on a whole new meaning. Not only did I need to be physically strong, but I had to be mentally and emotionally strong as well.
Exercise was no longer about burning calories to look good in a bathing suit. I needed it for my sanity. It was my form of therapy or mediation in some ways.
And when my daughter was born, I knew that I never wanted her to hear me say the words "diet" or "I'm fat". I wanted to teach her about positive body image and that she is the leading authority when it comes to her body.
I am far from perfect. But regardless of the chaos and craziness that life brings my way, I make time for myself because I know how important it is for me AND my family. This is a choice I make.
