Hey there! I’m Coby (aka A Nourished Mom) and welcome to my site! And welcome to the About Coby section! 😃
I started A Nourished Mom because I’m a lot like you, and I’ve been there way too many times: job loss, weight loss, kids, marriage, the nine. I want to connect with you so we can share our stories, fears, joys, and tears and maybe come out on the other side.
Hint: The answer is we will.
So! How did all of this come about?
In early 2016, I decided that what I was doing wasn’t working. For the first time ever in a nearly decade-long career, I was let go. I was stressed out. I was angry. I was frustrated. I weighed over 200 lbs. Things were definitely Not Good (so not good they deserve title caps).
In March 2016, I discovered Whole30, a program which transformed my life. I discovered which foods worked for me, which didn’t, and I discovered how to let go of food morality.
Driven by the research vortex of what works *in* my body, I decided to learn more about what works *on* my body. That discovery pointed me to Beautycounter in September 2016. I discovered a passion for getting safer, healthier products into everyone’s hands and being a health advocate.
For the tl;dr folks
I’m trying something totally new with my life… scary, but worth it!
I love coffee, specifically cold brew.
I have a cute husband, two adorable children, and a dog that’s mostly OK.
I will dive into the Pinterest vortex but will execute 5% of it.
I’m a Dallas Cowboys fan for marital harmony.
I’m Type A with Type B+ tendencies.
While life is definitely Better, I’m still going through the Ish to nourish my life. You can tag along for the ride on social media at @ANourishedMom.
