I’m thankful to have the opportunity to share my story and make connections with people interested in living a healthy life too.

Leaning On Others Through Life’s Challenges

My journey back from Lyme disease to health is, and continues to be, a daily challenge. Through it all I’m learning to take each day as it comes. Ultimately, I hope to help others who have health struggles, just as people in my life have helped me.

Many friends and family have invested time and energy into helping me and our family at times when I wasn’t physically able to get out of bed and cook dinner, or drive our four kids to their various activities.

I’ve received phone calls, texts and cards from friends who want to let me know they care and are praying for me. I’m forever grateful for the love and generosity that’s been shown to me and my family, and hope to show compassion to others going through health troubles.

A Grateful Heart

My heart is full of love and appreciate for those who have been so thoughtful and gracious to my family. I want to be there for others who are going through tough circumstances.

One person who has made a big difference in my life is my cousin Natalie. She learned that she also has Lyme only a few months before I my diagnosis.

Even in the midst of her health struggles, she’s been such an encourager, and shares great information and ideas about treatment options that have worked for her. We’ve chatted on Facebook, texted, and talked on the phone about what we’re going through.

Thankfully, I continue to make new connections with people who are dealing with Lyme. It’s so encouraging to have friends supporting you, especially in the midst of a health crisis.

If there is anything I can ever do to help you please let me know. Sometimes what we need most is a listening ear.

At the end of the day, we’re all human.

We all have 24 hours in a day, and those hours can go by quickly depending on circumstances and plans. Our paths to health may look different, but we can take them together, supporting each other along the way.

The important thing is we’re making changes for the better, changes that will make a difference in our life journey.

My Favorite Vegetable Is Ice Cream!

Hi there! I’m Lori Geurin, and my last name rhymes with Karen. 🙂

I’m glad you’re here and hope you find my site useful and encouraging. I have so many things I want to write about and share with you and am thankful for this opportunity.

I’ve been passionate about nutrition, fitness and healthy living for as long as I can remember. But in recent years, my health has been a constant struggle.

Since 2012, I’ve been battling Lyme disease, along with many other health issues related to the Lyme. I spend much of my days focused on how to get better and how to help prevent others from having to go through what I have.

And part of that journey to health is trying to eat healthy and take care of my body.

I’m not saying that I have all the answers, workout everyday, or eat a perfectly healthy diet. Not quite!

Confession – I love sweets, especially ice cream!

(Say what?! Isn’t this a health website? Is she even allowed to say that here?)

As you can probably tell, I like to keep things real, even if that means telling on myself sometimes.

But, I know a little more than I did last year, and a bit more than the year before that, so hopefully I’m moving in the right direction. Right?

Delicious vegetables!

So pull up a chair, grab a bowl of ice cream, uh…I  mean kale (or at least broccoli), and enjoy!

*I actually do enjoy eating veggies. 🙂

Committing yourself to a healthy life requires hard work, dedication and a willingness to learn.

I believe in you!

I also believe that there is strength in numbers.

If we share our health journeys and encourage one another we can make a huge impact in the lives of other people!

And who doesn’t want that?
