Hi! I'm Katie
I am a wife and a mom of two little ones - Ava who is 2 ½ years old and Grayson who is 10 months. I have my degree in human nutrition and dietetics. I originally started this blog to help others become stronger and healthier while debunking popular health myths. I encourage others to find their own meaning of what it means to be healthy and strong - LivFit & Strong.
After I became pregnant and then a mom, I realized how many unrealistic expectations, judgements, and false information are out there for moms. In addition, it became very clear that care stopped once the baby was born and you were left on your own to deal with your post-partum body and mind. None of this supports women who are entering the world of motherhood.
I am here to not only talk about health, fitness and nutrition but also my experience of pregnancy, postpartum and motherhood. My purpose is to lift up and support other women who are also going through it. It can be lonely trying to navigate this new life even if you’ve done it before. No pregnancy, child or postpartum journey is the same even for the same person.
I’m here to discuss things about motherhood that no one wants to talk about because if I have learned anything about pregnancy, postpartum or motherhood it’s that it is HARD. Sometimes women need to just talk about all the gory, painful, hard times, but also the amazing and life fulfilling times because that is what motherhood is in a nutshell - tears, loneliness and not showering, but also smiles, laughter and happy moments that will last a lifetime.
I hope you find what you’ve been looking for with my blogs!
