My name is Tara Valentine Jennette Posey. Yes, Valentine. What can I say? I was born on Valentine's Day!
I was born in Sarasota, FL but grew up in South, GA. We lived in the woods with an outhouse and no TV, while my parents built our house. I was home schooled until 7th grade when I decided I wanted to have more of a social life. Dance was my social outlet before that. I went to FSU thinking I wanted to major in dance but soon decided it would be more fun to do it on the side. I wanted to do something where I could help people. I changed my major to Physical Therapy.
I started training people to make ends meet while I earned my degrees. Somewhere along the line, I realized I was helping people already in my physical training business and having a blast at the same time. I have been training for 12 years and love all of my wonderful clients.
I met my wonderful husband in the gym (stereotypical, I know). I love to cook for us and had thought I was doing great if I was buying Greenwise at Publix. But after I lost my daughter to mercury poisoning- I woke up. I had already become a certified nutritionist, but I really started digging deep on how to be the healthiest person I could be.
I have worked long and hard on creating the healthiest home and body for my most prized possession. My Arabella. Her name means a beautiful prayer. As the song goes that I made up for her" Arabella is my best friend, she is my girlfriend, she is my ANGEL". She was born at home on 9/23/09. After 22 hours of labor and the hardest workout ever, my 9 pounder was laid on my chest and just looked at her daddy and I like she had known us forever.
I still think I am nesting though because I have become more of a Betty Home Maker (I know it is Susie, but I always mess it up). I love creating things and new recipes. I am so excited to be able to share parts of our wonderful life with all of you. I am also excited to have an outlet to help more people improve there lives physically. I hope we can all become a family and have a blast helping each other.
Tara, Cory & Arabella
