About MeI'm a Californian starting a new adventure in Texas. My favorite things include traveling, being outside, reading good books, exercising, and spending time with family and friends. I do my best to take care of my body by eating healthy foods ... especially when oats are involved! I am a NSCA certified personal trainer and love to share workouts with you. Please always consult with a medical professional before beginning an exercise program. This blog is not a substitute for medical advice. Listen to your body and do what works for you!
