Hi! 🙂 My name is Raquel Lodge and I am a health and fitness blogger, foodie, nutrition nerd and have a passion for inspiring/educating others to show up as they are, not diet or restrict, and to just love yourself the way you are! I also have a bachelors degree in Human Nutritional Sciences from the University of Manitoba and I am a ISSA certified personal trainer. Which brings me to creating this blog.
This blog is my creative outlet and my space to talk about all of the things I love that I mentioned in the paragraph above. I hope you get a lot from reading my posts, and my intention is to always give you the best information, tips and inspiration to live your best, happiest life!
My passion comes from many years of struggling with body image issues and feeling like I was never good enough until I lost weight. I also struggled with anxiety, insomnia, depression and intrusive thoughts OCD, which I also share about on my blog and talk about how I’ve recovered from all of these. I still struggle some days but I know how to deal with it better and I took those struggles as a sign that I need to help others.
Besides my passion and love for blogging, I work full time at a bank in Eriksdale where I live with my boyfriend. Im a golden retriever mom to my dog Gunner who we got in March 2020. He is literally my fur baby and a little shadow.
I hope reading this blog helps you as much as it has helped me release my thoughts and feelings. I love to share about my life so please if you have any ideas of what you would like to see on the blog let me know in the comments.
Love you guys! Hope you enjoy reading 🙂
