'Hi, my name is Monica!..."MoJo' for short"
I am currently living in Central Michigan, I have raised four amazing kids, three I gave birth to and one I feel blessed to have been given the privilege of being a stepmom to! I was born in Canada and still remain a Canadian citizen even though I am a permanent resident of the USA. I feel it is all the same and I embrace both countries! Four years ago I lost my beautiful mom to Leukemia – in the same month my divorce was finalized. I found myself having to reinvent my life.
After struggling with fighting depression and having gained weight for the first time in my life, I decided that I needed to find a way to help myself out of this slump. I had always been active in sports, I enjoy the outdoors, and I love to run. I also have been involved in nutrition for most of my life, I love to cook and I take pride in always providing healthy home cooked meals for my family.
My mom was my greatest inspiration and taught me wonderful German cuisine, I was also blessed to have a sweet Syrian mother in law who taught me the art of cooking Middle eastern foods. Considering this healthy eating lifestyle I loved so much, I decided to not only embark on improving my own health, but also to help others who may need some extra encouragement and support along the way.
With all this in mind I now coach healthy eating and Get Fit Challenges that will transform your life and give you a starting point that you can grow from. Along with the support you will receive in my small, private online group challenges, you will also have the opportunity to meet new friends and embrace taking care of yourself through healthy clean eating as well as exercise to fit your abilities.
I am looking forward to meeting you and embarking on this journey with you ♥
UPDATE: I moved to Arlington Virginia in August 2018! Loving it so far!
UPDATE: After a Wonderful, fun filled and ‘precious’ year spent with my oldest son in Virginia, I have now moved to Fort Collins, Colorado!
