Hello! I’m Kristin. I’m one “STUFT” Mama.
I love food and I love to eat (in fact, my sister-in-law once told me my special talent was to down a huge plate of 3 desserts- not really my proudest moment). Running is my therapy (although I get a bit competitive sometimes). I’m passionate about fitness and exercise. I love experimenting in the kitchen and creating nutritious meals. I have an amazing husband and twin boys who mean the world to me. I am also the proud owner of a hairless cat, Kitty.
Healthy eating has always been a big part of my life. I’ve spent hours searching for new recipes, looking up nutrition information, and finding new food products. Along with that, I’ve spend quite a lot of money on cookbooks, healthy food finds, and fun kitchen gadgets. (That was BB [before babies] when I used to shop at Nordstrom and buy expensive beauty products. Things are a little different now. I’m on a budget and am only allowed to buy the things I really “need”.)
I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 11 years. Just last year I took a leave of absence from my full-time job as a middle school PE teacher to be a mom and pursue my dream of owning my own business. I started STUFT Fitness in August of 2010 and have been personal training and teaching classes part-time while spending the majority of my time with my precious boys. Here they are.
Judah and Joaquin. Awww…. Don’t you just want to hug them? Anyway…..
I’m a big believer on setting and achieving goals. Although the past couple of years I’ve finally taken some major steps towards balanced, healthy eating (with a few indulgences here and there of course- I’m a fan of the 80/20 rule), I realized recently that my goal I make for myself every year (month, week, day, etc.) is to find balance in life. I am an extremist by nature (okay, okay, some might call me a bit “obsessive”) with most of the things I do, but I’m working on taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture. I decided to document my journey to find that balance and hopefully I can inspire some others along the way.
