Short and to the point…will be updated later.

Let me introduce myself….my name is Heather, AKA, Heathen, Hot Mess, Hot Pocket, etc. I have lotsa nicknames, lol. You’ll come to understand that I’m a bit crazy, and can be completely out there! Hope I don’t offend anyone!


In case you were wondering…that’s a fried green tomato lollipop. Onlyin Texas, ya’ll!

I have been into working out for a few years now, but always was in and out. Fortunately, this year has been different. I have gone full force and I am seeing great results. I have new goals and have realized that fitness is my passion…well, fitness and cooking weird shiz. I heart cooking. I will be sharing my goals, progress and hopefully some motivational words here.
Now the basics…I am 32 years old, I live in the DFW area but I’m from a very small Texas town, Groesbeck. GO GOATS! I went to college in the piney woods of East Texas at Stephen F. Austin State University…Axe Em Jacks! I graduated with a BA in Radio/Television and minor in Journalism.

I am married and am the mother to 2 ginormous doggies. A black labradoodle, Licorice, and a goldendoodle, Twix.

You’ll be hearing more about them. I work in the Oil and Gas Industry and I absolutely love my job. As you read earlier, my hobbies are working out, cooking, shopping (sales and clearance ecspecially!!!), Vegas and hanging out w/my friends and family. I do admit I have a love for the beer (which keeps me in the gym a lot!) and I love a good party.

I had to put this here. It is appropriate in this very spot. heehee

 I know it’s not the healthiest, but hey, I like it.

Another thing to know about me is that somewhere in the middle of this year I decided to take a huge step (IMO) and become certified to teach Body Pump. This is something I thought I would never have the guts to do…and I DID IT! After passing certification I’ve become a woman possessed…with Group Fitness, that is. LOL. I can’t wait to start adding more certifications and start teaching other GF classes. I love it and never thought I would or could do it…and I did.

Sooo, after becoming, literally, obsessed w/reading other peeps Healthy Living blogs, I knew I had to start one myself. Also, not everything I do may be considered “Healthy” all the time…which leads to my tag line…Fitness, Food and FUN can commingle!

Lastly, it took 31 years for me to realize what my passions are in life and now it’s time to pursue them!

    Thanks for stopping by at my blog. Good luck with other certifications! I am thinking about doing BodyCombat next – I think once you do one Les Mills module, you can’t stop. They are very addictive. 🙂
    I like your dogs – such cuties! 🙂

      I KNOW…I LOVE Combat and ATTACK! I got sertified in Turbo Kick, but really have no time to dedicate to learning it well enough to teach it. I would love to go through another Les Mills program though.
