Howdy ladies and gents! I am Leslie Fiala Urbas Registered Dietitian, Personal trainer, and online fitness, nutrition, grocery expert/coach. Since this is my first blog post, I figured I would give you a taste of what this blog will bring you!
Since I am a big “list” girl I am going to give you the rundown in list form:
Might come as a shock to you since you know my masters degree is in nutrition … but NUTRITION will be a big topic I discuss on this blog! Things like diets, supplements, eating plans, big news topics, and eating healthy for the whole family from a 6 month old to a 90 year old. When I discuss something I will address it in terms for the whole family.
Fitness, again big shocker right? Since I am a personal trainer and online fitness expert. I want to cover topics like how often should I exercise, what types, how, when, supplements …. The whole kitten cabbodle. Lets hit all the marks so that way we can live a healthy active life.
Being a mom. As a mommy to (a currently 15 month old) baby girl named Lily, I plan to discuss how you can live a life fully as a mom, still pursue your dreams, exercise, eat healthy, and get in your own personal and professional development without losing your mind or time with your littles!
Being a military more specifically navy wife. Ian is current active duty navy and is serving on a ship, so I will brace life from a mom and wife stand point of “having to do it all.” Things like I fixed the toilet last week since he was gone and I had no other solution. To I actually had to pick up a lizard since he was gone and my cat brought it in.
Goal setting. One of the biggest things I think I missed in the past few years has been setting goals especially publicly and making it something to strive for and to achieve. I truly do believe it is possible to “do it all” with the help of others and make it happen.
So without further ado … as my first post let me tell you just a bit more about me. I am currently 34 years old living in Jacksonville FL. I am originally from St. Louis MO where I was born and raised. I left St. Louis MO to become a dietitian in the United States Navy in 2009. After serving for 3 years active and 7 years on reserve duty, I have ended my naval career and decided to fulfill my lifelong dream of owning my own business Fit and Fabulous Family Nutrition. I have been married for over 2 years and we have a beautiful baby girl and 2 cats: one fat and one crazy ☺.
My goal has always been to help families fuel for all of life’s adventures. I always find families struggling on how to make 1 meal or not go through the fast food line all the time. This blog should hopefully help you do just that and so much more!
I hope that this blog allows you to find some comfort in knowing you can achieve your dreams and that you can eat well whether you are at home, on the go, on vacation, or at the world’s biggest thanksgiving dinner known to man!
So I hope in the next months/years this blog serves you and your family the way it will mine!
Wishing you a Happy Fit and Fabulous day! GO out and fuel for your life’s adventures.
