Hi everyone! I'm Des, a 22 year old college grad living in FL. I recently added writing to my list of interests to create content that aligns with my lifestyle. Hopefully you can get to know me better & learn something along the way.

How does it work?

    The holidays are definitely keeping me busy, and my wallet pretty empty. Between all the fun festivities with my friends, trying to stay in touch with my family (who is just as busy as I am), and trying to keep my life and health in order, it can get overwhelming.

    I started my health & wellness journey in 2016. Honestly, I only started caring about my health because I wanted to lose weight for a cruise. Fortunately for me, I couldn’t believe how amazing I felt inside and out after I pushed myself to accomplish my goals, and the desire to eat right and hit the gym stuck around. Unfortunately for me, the all-or-nothing perfectionist attitude that I developed also stuck around. When the end of 2016 came and the holidays started approaching, I found that I couldn’t keep up my super strict routines and enjoy the food that I wanted to at the same time. So in 2017, I developed an extremely unhealthy relationship with food and had relatively zero balance in my life. In 2018, I started to find out that health and happiness don’t need to exist separately, and learned that the two things can intertwine beautifully. By learning how to cook, I was able to find ways to enjoy the types of food I’ve always loved and not feel guilty afterwards. I went from being scared of the stove and only eating microwavable foods, to learning how to create balanced meals from scratch and trying out new things.
