About Me

Hey there! I'm so happy you stopped in to check things out around here! 

I'm Jess! 
Wife, Momma, Big Dreamer, Head Motivator, and Lover of G-O-D. 
After having a heart to heart with my own Momma I woke up one day and decided there had to be a better way to manage my health, than not at all! 
After navigating my own road I started putting the talents I've been blessed with to good use and began leading others in making their own lifestyle adjustments.

I'm a former teacher of children and current leader of ladies! I'm the Founder of The Not About The Number Girls and proud Creator of Living Healthy, Family Style! I know that maintaining healthy habits can be tricky while balancing a busy family life and I've made it my mission to pay it forward and share the strategies I've learned, that last!

I like to share the on goings of my life as a mom and wife - who's really NOT the fittest girl next door - but rather just trying to be the best version of me I can be and fight the good fight against hypothyroidism. Honoring the gifts Ive been given!

You'll also find motivating tidbits, funny stories and pics, recipe wins and debacles, short cuts, time savers, and my own personal accountability posts!

If you and I are lovers of the same things - I'd love to connect!

You can also find me over at:

Got Goals?!? Let's Crush Them Together!

Oh, and BTW -

More tid bits about me:
I'm 33 and Chuck Taylors and hoodies are still a main staple in my wardrobe and I have no idea if I'll ever change that!

I'm so unpredictable that I rarely ever do anything on a consistent basis; except read, I LOVE to read!

I read every single night, it could be a magazine or any number of books that I read simultaneously. I read about all sorts of things: health, fitness, diet, cooking, baking, crafting, decorating, DIY, fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, biographies, and self help...just to name a few! hehe ;-)

I typically avoid reading or watching the news...I know, I know....soooooo not grown-up of me. Well, sorry folks, I just can't bear to listen to all the grief, tragedy, and non-sense they talk about most of the time. Some might call it avoidance or naivety or whatever you want...but, I don't care! lol! You never know how much of the information is an accurate description that hasn't been "altered" some how anyway!

Most of the time I wear my nail polish until it chips off on it's own! Or, until I pick it all off myself! Yikes!

I LOVE warm weather, but, I live in the north where it is verrrry cold because I LOVE my husband more!

Sushi, wine, and bubbly (champagne) are some of my favorite indulgences.

Sleep is one of my best friends.

I change my hair color and length on average of 3 or more times a year!

I was born a natural red head and in Texas so those two things alone make me pretty awesome!

Hats are *AWESOME*!

I stay up late....A LOT!!!!

I think it's sacrilegious to eat BBQ without drinking a beer.

I have a definite affinity to sugary goodies such as cupcakes, cookies, pies, cakes, and many other tasty treats!
