You know, you can reinvent yourself anytime you want.
After starting to focus on my health and fitness earlier this year, I’m officially a wellness coach. This adventure began when I joined an accountability group to stay focused and determined. Little did I know that this new hobby will turn into a bigger passion and even a job. I’ve met new friends from all over the country, committed to an intense weight lifting program and a new healthy lifestyle.
Love it or hate it, this is an exciting point in my life and I want to share it with friends. I’m happy to commit to these changes and build a future for my family.
I’m a coach. I’m building team Weights Over Wine so can help more people feel the empowerment.
Everyone deserves a new start, support and love. Please comment or DM if you want to join me. I’m happy to provide more info and insight on my new adventure.

It might not be a brand new spot but it is my favorite wine bar in Marin. Located in the Marin Country Mart in Larkspur, Fisher’s Wine and Cheese won me over with the warm decor, changing wine selection, and amazing food.
Wine: selection changes every 2 weeks and the wines are picked by their wine buyer, Carter. I was able to find a rare Greek wine, local wines from Sonoma/Napa that are not sold in stores as well as other limited releases.
Food: traditional California eats. With a twist. I recommend meatballs, Mac and cheese, and cheese platters. Everything is made in house and available for lunch and dinner. They offer a sandwich of the month which is always popular and is usually sold out by lunch time.
Atmosphere: small wine shop with cozy decor. Small selection of gifts, cheese and meat for sale, wine for sale, to go lunch boxed, etc. I love sitting outside on their patio with live music and bay views. They always have fresh flowers for the table too.
Fisher’s Wine and Cheese is a stylish spot for wine, California eats and gifts.
Today I want to share how I’m getting used to the Whole30, failing it, and starting again.
First of all, one day I realized that my wedding is in about 8 months, I’m 15 pounds over my ideal weight, and I’ve never felt less comfortable and confident in my life. Adding 3-4 SoulCycle classes per week and lifting weights was not really doing much… One last thing left to do was actually take a look at my diet and nutrition.
When I started, everything was going according to the plan… Of course, I felt like I was starving for the first 4 days. Then, on day 5 I couldn’t even get up from bed and had zero energy to function at a normal level. After that, things started to get better – I got more energy, discovered more products that I like to eat, found brands that are Whole30 approved (Primal Kitchen).
On day 13, I had lost about 6-7 pounds (I know, I know you’re not supposed to check on the progress during the program) and was feeling amazing. Then, I made one of the worst mistakes – Labor day feast! All my work basically went to shit. After spending two days eating carbs and drinking wine, I came home feeling miserable.
Not only did all of my progress went away, I also realized it’s even harder to go back to the original diet and keep at it. It took me another two days to get my mind set on following the diet again.
Today, I am fully committed to the diet and getting my life back on track. Physically and mentally.
Menu for the day:
- Coffee (no milk)
- Cucumber sandwiches with prosciutto
- Lettuce wrapped Beef sliders with bell peppers.
Eggs and Potato hash
I will keep my progress updates here to keep myself accountable and committed. After all, that dress needs to fit perfectly.
