Life Lessons:

*Are you happy at the moment?

At this exact moment, I can hear my 2 teenage boys arguing down the hall, and I am trying to stay out of it, so not sure! Haha But yes, I am happy with life, have been blessed to be married for 25 years, raised 3 pretty great boys, love my work (Integrative Health Coach, Personal Trainer, Group
Ex Instructor, and Author, live on a farm, and am passionate about making a difference).

*If you could go back and say anything to your 16 year-old self now, what would it be?

You are good enough, you don’t need to find your value in the approval of others. Love yourself and don’t drink Diet Coke.

*What’s the most important thing you’ve learned this year?

Set goals with a date attached. I met 2 huge deadlines this year of things I wanted to accomplish, and without the date, they would probably still be on the to-do list.

*What do you most want to achieve in the next 12 months?

Become a public speaker, inspiring women to love themselves to health, to eat clean, move their bodies, and enjoy nourishing self-care.

*What’s your secret to happiness?

Pursuing my passion in wellness, having a project that I can really sink my teeth into! When I wrote my book, I couldn’t wait to get out of bed each morning and was at my computer often at 4:30 a.m., so excited to write!

*What’s one ritual or practice keeps you grounded?

Exercising every morning! It is definitely my prozac and the biggest stress reliever ever! One time, when I was tapering for a race, my kids were begging me to go to the gym.

*What’s your biggest regret?

Raising my kids on crap food: McDonalds, Tony’s Pizza, and Mac ‘n Cheese. You just don’t know what you don’t know. I didn’t realize the importance of good nutrition when they were young. And breaking those bad habits hasn’t been easy. My oldest wouldn’t eat anything green and lived on sandwiches. However, I am proud to say they don’t eat fast food or drink soda anymore!

*What’s the most important lesson you¹ve taught your kids?

To be themselves. I had 3 boys in 3 years and they are all so different. They don’t conform to the norms of their peers, or try to imitate each other. Also, family first. We are a tight family and they are the loves of my life! (oh and their Dad too of course)

*What bad habit would you most like to change about yourself?

Focus – I have so many great things going on that I am scattered and unorganized. You should see my desk! Ha!

*Aside from motherhood and marriage, what are you most proud of in your life?

Writing my book! I cannot believe I actually wrote a book. Now I want to teach on the philosophy in the book and inspire women to raise their kids in a healthy way (unlike me) and to never give up on what they want.

*When were you happiest?

Part of me wants to say now, because it’s so important to focus on the present and be grateful for what we have now! But, when my kids were little and I was home with them, taking them to the park, the beach, play groups, life was so good. I miss my boys when they leave for college.

*What ten words best describe you?

Friendly, loud, expressive, energetic, motivating, healthy, strong, ambitious, loving, compassionate

My life has been so blessed: happily married for 25 years, stay at home mom for over twenty, and live on a certified organic farm in California!

After years of the diet roller coaster, I attended nutrition school, and became an Integrative Health Coach and Personal Trainer. Finally I “got it” and started releasing my own bad habits one at a time. I may not be perfect, but I am passionate about fitness, food, and inspiring women to ditch the quick fix and commit to lasting lifestyle changes. To seek strong, not skinny, to find health, not a number on the scale, to be fit, not a jean size.

My loves include my wonderful husband, 3 awesome boys, boot camp, mountain biking, yoga, salad and wine (together), my 2 labs, the beach & pool, traveling, public speaking, and reading! I am loud, talkative, expressive, too honest, and love romantic comedies.

Combing the aisles at Target in search of the best deal on Cheerios, it hit Rene Syler like the stench of a dirty diaper on a hot summer’s day. Not only is perfection overrated its utterly impossible! Suddenly empowered, she figuratively donned her cape, scooped up another taco kit for dinner and Good Enough Mother was born.
