Welcome! This is the first post at Cheeky’s new home. If this is your first time visiting my blog, please read the original post about my success.  I have chosen some specific lifestyle changes that have improved my overall health.  I have changed my nutritional lifestyle to eating a Primal/Paleo diet.  I lean more toward a Primal diet, as I allow myself some dairy. I also have seasons of time when I feel the need to adhere to a strict Paleo diet. If you want to learn more about the Primal or Paleo diets, I have provided links to some solid resources here on my site. These resources and others that I have included in my blog posts, expose some of the myths in regards to the USDA or SAD (Standard American Diet).  Along with making nutritional changes I have changed the way I exercise. I have joined the CrossFit community. You can read more about CrossFit in the blog post Fear Not.   I work out here in Ocala, Florida at CrossFit Pinnacle with some very caring and knowledgeable coaches.   I should also mention that Crossfit Pinnacle has some awesome members who keep me on target.  I love my gym family.

I am so excited to launch this new site with some new direction.  This has been a wonderful challenge for me. I want to make sure to provide information and motivation for your own success.  My purpose here is to encourage people to take charge of their own health, fitness and nutrition as well as emotional health.  The majority of my focus relates to women, but these written nuggets are not limited to them alone. With that focus, I would like to empower women to embrace and understand their own unique beauty and individuality.  I hope to continue writing encouraging and inspirational blog post. My aim is to motivate with a positive influence. In return, I hope that this will stimulate and lead you to find, understand, and own your unique essence. Then, be secure in that beauty.  I believe it is important that I acknowledge here the contrast of both the strength and delicate beauty in women.  Let’s take a good look at all our interesting facets, including aesthetic physical beauty.

Here are few things to look forward to. I will be adding a new category to this site for primal recipes and/or paleo recipes, and a section where you can share a favorite recipe of yours.  I am also working on adding a forum for those who may want to share their own success stories, ideas and cheeky wisdoms. Some of these ideas I expect to unfold with pleasant surprises. So, you will want to stay connected. Please bear with me, as I have so many more ideas than time. I am looking forward to expanding Cheeky Fit and Fifty with these new ideas and more.

As this cheeky site flourishes and evolves, please know I value honesty as I expose my own journey here. I desire to develop a trust that I genuinely care and want to make a difference in your quality of life. It pleases me to know that I have connected and touched many of you. Your response has encouraged me to keep this going and growing.

Meet me here every Friday and let’s journey with a trinity of exceptional health; body, soul, and spirit. As well as being lifted to a place of poised confidence.

This is for my Cheeky girlfriends……Stay on fire!!!
