Who is Maria?
I was born and raised in the San Francisco bay area. I have two beautiful daughters (age 7 and 2). One was born through labor and one through foster care adoption. I am happily married to an accountant and living near the city. Who am I really? I am a mom, an entrepreneur, a great friend and a dreamer. I am just a girl who cried when the first woman president was nominated even though I don’t even know if I am excited to vote for her.
What is Maria’s Loft?
Maria’s loft is a place to share cool ideas about my very personal journey. It’s a loft because it comes right out of my lofty thoughts. Join me for clean eating recipes, spiritual reflection, parenting articles and entrepreneurship… Oh did I forget to mention that I walked away from a six figure part time job to start a business? Yup, you will hear about that too.
What are your health goals?
I have lots of goals in regards to personal life, business and my family, but the hardest to overcome is the one area of my life I have felt helpless – my health. I am working toward a healthy weight, and I started 100 pounds overweight. You will learn by following me, that I don’t believe in diets. I believe with all my heart (and supported by some success) that I can break out of my dilemma with a spiritual, clean-ish eating approach. No dieting, no scale, no shaming, no off-limit foods and absolutely no failure allowed. It sounds crazy, and it might be. You will need to subscribe to see if it is really possible. So far, I have gone from a 22 to a 16, but I will tell you the road is not paved with roses.
Thanks for joining me. I hope you will find many parallels to inspire you.
