Welcome to Fitness Family and Food

My name is Kate Lee and I am a 48 year old mother of three beautiful daughters, twins – Molly and Mandi age 15 and Emma, age 17.  I take care of my 92 year old grandmother, teach middle school, and habitually tend to take on too much.  Sure, I can help out is a phrase I often say. When things get hectic and I begin to stress, I head out into the woods or I sit down and craft.  I adore crafting and love to create beautiful sayings, pictures, and gifts.  I love my Silhouette Cameo and I am always willing to try new things and teach my self something new.

My life hasn’t always been full of healthy happiness.  I have found a renewed joy in life as I experience the glorious triumphs of life while focusing on my nutrition, my health,  and rediscovering who I am meant to be.

I love gardening, farmer’s markets, and cooking delicious food.  I believe strongly in knowing where your food comes from and eating well.  I love hiking and spending time out in nature whether it is on a trail in the woods, a path at a park, or listening to my girls and puppies in the yard. I love my pets as if they are my children.  My dogs bring unconditional love and acceptance to my life as well as a lot of laughter.  To me, nothing is more satisfying that creating memories together in this journey of life.

I enjoying creating and crafting with my girls, my friends, and even by myself. Creative activities have always been a way to get back in touch with myself, restore joy and move away from stress, restored me to balance and helped me to work through problems.  I have also found joy in meeting new people at craft shows which also helps financially too.  Making that special item for someone else brings me such a sense of success and happiness.  It is giving a piece of me for them to enjoy. Creativity is action, getting deeply involved in life and experience. Creative endeavors are healing and liberating.  It doesn’t matter the outcome, it is the process and journey that counts.

I take care of my three active daughters, and my still feisty 92 year old grandmother.  My three girls were World Cup All Star Cheerleaders for many years, but are now all hard working lifeguards at local resorts with indoor waterparks as they finish their last few years of high school.  Nana has dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson and keeps me hopping with all the extra care she requires.  Somedays, I think if I didn’t have a planner, I would be spinning in an appointment nightmare lol.

My life was on the wrong path for so long.  I was living task by task unconnected and alone.  I had put myself last and ended up not even liking myself.  I tried to break away and change where I was heading, many times.  I was unsuccessful and floundering until I took a late night chance on a program.  What I didn’t know is that program and the support and accountability that came with it was the catalyst I needed to change my path.

While I am still CRAZY busy, my life is not a series of the next thing to do, but rather a life full of experiences.  I have learned to take time for myself and now know that if I take care of myself, I am a better mom, better caregiver, and better person.

Why do I help others now as a health and nutrition coach instead of just focusing on me?  Let’s be honest, I could just sell my crafts and take care of myself.

It is simple. I want to help people because I know what it is like to wake up one day and think how did I get here, overweight, tired, alone, and stressed. It was in that moment when I realized I was meant for so much more in life.  I passionately believe it is not too late for you too to transform your life.  To stop just getting by, and begin to grow your dreams and build an exhilarating life full of possibilities.  Together we can change your path! I will empower those who feel alone and struggling with a wealth of support and resources. Rediscover the triumphs of life as you nourish your mind and body naturally. Renew your health as you experience the joy of exercise and reconnect harmoniously. Rediscover yourself and begin to live an exquisitely connected life.

Are you ready to change your path? Let me share my passion and inspiration to help you!
