What’s up, y’all?! I’m Kayla!

Welcome to my blog, where you will find my rambles about books, health (physical AND mental), imperfect sustainability, and possibly the occasional quirky word-vomit-esque post.

I want to help inspire others to live their best, most authentic lives; and to simply do what they enjoy.

Which is why I write about what I enjoy.

I Haven’t Always Been Like This, Though.

In 2017, I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and depression. Thus began a long few years of medication, therapy, and just trying to figure out how I can be at peace whilst living in my own head.

Since 2017, I’ve put a lot of time and effort into healing, learning, and becoming the best version of me- the version I want my family, friends, coworkers, and clients to see!

Health is SO Important, and I Want To Educate About It!

I have been a NASM Certified Personal Trainer since 2014. Now, I specialize in weight loss and fitness nutrition through NASM. During quarantine 2020, I earned my Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification.

I have helped well over 100 people achieve physical health (and in some cases, improved mental health and self-confidence) through nutrition and exercise…

But not fad diets or overtraining… those two things are the devil.

Anyhoo, I’ve worked in a variety of settings like huge gyms, small gyms, spin studios, and even an OrangeTheory studio. Nowadays, I am running my own business!

In addition to that, I maintain my own workout schedule because one of the many things I have learned is that I am happiest when I am A C T I V E!

Don’t Be Fooled… I’m Not JUST a Jock.

I’m a creative nerd who kind of wants to save the planet, too.

Which is why you will see book reviews and other topics like sustainable living on here (and reviews of sustainable products that I LOVE to try).

I believe that health is so much more than eating well and working out. It might sound like some “hippie stuff,” but I do believe that we are connected to the Earth in the sense of what is bad for us, is typically bad for our planet.

Don’t worry, though, I’m not going to tell you to use essential oils for your child’s ear infection. *wink*
