I live outside of San Francisco with my two kids, husband and canine-child, Rubi (bed head photo attached).
I spend a lot of my time working and commuting these days, but when I'm not doing those things I love to be active with my family -- running, biking, hiking, swimming -- and working the garden listening to podcasts.
Success for me will be having more energy and losing the 10 lbs I packed on over the last year in a vicious stress-eat-numb cycle. I am a former athlete and feel far from athletic these days.
Making myself a priority will be my biggest challenge. I struggle with putting my needs before the needs of others. To navigate this, I will remind myself that exercise, sleep, and nutrition are the building blocks for my best self.
