About

Thanks for dropping in!

I’m Juanita. People tell me I don’t look like a Juanita since I’m red headed and freckled with super pale skin, but what’s in a name, right?  I’m a 40-something, single (as in no kids, never been married) gal from Oklahoma. I’m a nurse and most importantly, a follower of Jesus. I love chocolate, am scared of heights and petrified of snakes.

After my fortieth birthday and losing over 60 pounds, I discovered I’m a runner and a CrossFitter, and that there’s a whole lot of life left to live. I just had to get past the fat, stare down the fear, and realize that 40 is not too old for new beginnings. So this is the story of my struggles and adventures in the quest to live a healthy life in mind, body, and soul.
