I have a passion for healthy living filled with good nutrition, fitness, family, faith, and to promote conscience living that is purpose-based, attainable, fulfilling and enjoyable.

My site was created out of necessity to share my passion for living a healthy life filled with good nutrition, fitness, family and my faith.  My desire is to promote healthy and conscience living that is purpose-based, attainable, fulfilling and enjoyable.

My Story

I love God first, I am a wife to my best friend since Junior High, a mother of six beautiful children (four boys and two girls), and a true fitness and training enthusiast.  My background and education is in business and I served 10 years in the Army Reserves as a Civil Affairs Specialist, completing my service as a Sergeant.

My passion for fitness and training started in 2010, when I committed to a healthy lifestyle and signed on for the nation’s largest transformation competition, a $100,000 transformation challenge powered by Optimum Nutrition. With over 14,000 entrants, my husband and I won the contest and claimed both the grand prize for the male and female top transformations. After winning the 2011 transformation challenge, I continued on with the lifestyle and developed this desire to learn more about nutrition and fitness (beyond what goes in to focusing on a short-term goal).

Currently I am pursuing my Personal Trainer & Sports Nutrition Certifications from ISSA (International Sports Sciences Association), but this also led me to really focus on finding that balance with nutrition.  I knew there had to be a way for this type of lifestyle to actually be enjoyable, and not as restricted, filled with unhealthy patterns and labeled as boring.  As I begin to study and make the connection between my faith and how I took care of myself, it became clear that it was about developing healthy eating habits with good wholesome foods.  From there, my work in the kitchen began.

Currently, I am a nutrition/recipe contributor to the Human Engine created by Kelechi Opara. This site is designed to deliver all things training, nutrition and wellness related from articles, tips, videos, recipes and more. I am a recipe Contributor for Eat Smart and Workout Hard on Facebook, with three columns (Fit Body Breakfast with Kia’s Fit Fare, Lean Body Baking & Desserts with Kia’s Fit Fare and Cooking Light Family Favorites with Kia’s Fit Fare).

My work has also been featured on Ripped Recipes, a great source developed to help people in all areas and levels of fitness find nutritious meals that are within their individual macronutrient needs.

Be Healthy, Be Strong, Nourish your Body and Live Fit!
