Hi! My name is Rachel and I’m a 49-year old mother of 2, wife, sister, daughter, aunt and friend who works full-time and tries to live a healthy lifestyle. I decided to start a blog to share various day-to-day activities, many lifestyle choices and travel adventures. I think that many of us (at any age) face similar problems or questions throughout our lives and I feel we are really all looking for the same answers. I am privileged to live in Canada where I’ve grown up and also raised my own children. I am also lucky enough to have travelled to different parts of the world. One of the best things about travelling is returning home at the end! I am at a time in my life where my adult children are thinking of moving out and so a new chapter begins.

It makes me think about retirement and what I want to do in my spare time? To do all these activities, I must be healthy and be able to move. I have discovered that the only person who really cares about my health and well-being is me! So I know that I must take full responsibility for my health and fitness. I like to run, bike and do more organized home workouts following videos. In terms of nutrition, I really enjoy making new recipes and learning about healthy foods. I’ve explored different diets and have discovered after some research, that a whole-foods plant-based diet is the best for me. I try to follow low-fat, low-sugar recipes that are “veganish”. I aim for vegan, but will occasionally have something non-vegan especially if that’s what I’m offered at someone else’s house. I don’t feel bad if I stray very occasionally but I certainly don’t seek animal products by choice.

For fun, in addition to cooking/baking, I enjoy boating and hope to one day do “the Great Loop” with my husband of 26 years. This is a goal we share and hope to put into motion in the not-to-distant future! So I invite you to follow me as I take this journey of life. We likely have many things in common. I hope that YourPrimeOfLife.com will serve as a reliable resource in your journey towards health and well-being. Check out some of my other pages and feel free to leave comments…. I’d love to hear from you!
