I’m super excited to announce that I’ve just published my “Creating Wellness” ebook!
“Creating Wellness” is the short title; the full title is actually, “Creating Wellness: 3 Massive Mistakes Foodies Make That Keep Them Unhealthy, Overweight, and Uncreative.”
My interest in health and wellness started in childhood. Unbeknownst to everyone else, I was always on some sort of health kick – like the time I used some sort of orange pully device that attached to a door handle and I’d move my arms and legs up and down and side to side every day – thinking I was exercising – until I broke the darn thing with my rigorous routines and enthusiasm. 🙂
Every now and then I’d try to lose weight on my own but at the same time, I loved eating and wanted to be a famous chef when I grew up.
Fast forward 30 odd years.
After many twists and turns in life and not always making the best choices for my health, I’m back on the road to wellness and as the owner of Homespunspa Mobile spa, I’ve made it my life’s work to encourage people to make health and wellness a priority in their life.
I specifically wrote this ebook for foodies who want to be healthier AND tap into their creativity and I’ll tell you why:
“Don’t die with the music still in you.” ~ Wayne W. Dyer
The above quote makes me think of my father and I’ve dedicated this ebook to him. When I was in my late twenties, I gave my father a book to help him write his memoirs. The book was written and compiled by Patricia A. Williams and is called Once Upon a Lifetime and it invites you to “Take time to record the stories of your life” by answering 1001 questions. My father and I both shared a love of words and communication and he always said how much he wanted to write about his family and his life and I was hoping this book would get his creative juices flowing.
I think my father always had the intention of writing his books but somehow never got around to it. He had an illustrious career, a happy marriage, a knack for gardening and fishing, and a full life and then, suddenly, at 61, he became ill. He visited his doctor and the doctor said he had to check himself into the hospital that day. I didn’t know this until later, but he brought the Once upon a Lifetime book with him to pass the time in the hospital. Inside the book, he wrote, “For my daughter Maria” and that was that. That’s all he wrote in that book. He died 10 days later. His books were never written.
I don’t want this to happen to you or anyone else. I don’t want you to “die with the music still in you” and that’s why I’ve combined all of my work experience, education, talents, skills, and interests, and my entire heart and soul, to write this ebook, “Creating Wellness: 3 Massive Mistakes Foodies Make that Keep Them Unhealthy, Overweight, And Uncreative.”
If you have something you’d like to do in your life, a song in your heart that you want to sing out loud, whether it’s write a book, or fall in love, or travel to a distant land, or operate a food truck, whatever it is, I’d like to help you live your dreams. I’d like to help you get your dreams out of your head and into your life.
The solution starts with reading my ebook, “Creating Wellness: 3 Massive Mistakes Foodies Make that Keep Them Unhealthy, Overweight, And Uncreative.”
Foodies are my people
I’ve written this ebook especially for foodies because:
1. I come from a long line of foodies and good cooks and all of my family’s celebrations have revolved around food. We enjoy talking about food, trying new foods, going to restaurants, watching cooking shows on TV, and sharing meals at dinner parties.
2. I’m also a pretty good cook myself and I love how cooking lets me be creative.
3. I’ve also written a cookbook of sorts called, “How to Throw a Home Spa Pajama Party the Homespunspa Way” that is chalk full of recipes for homemade spa treatments that I’ve developed myself.
4. Also, I’ve worked as a breakfast cook, a deli clerk, a banquet server, and waitress, and I know how stressful the food and hospitality industries can be. Working in a professional kitchen with all of the hot stoves, cold freezers, sharp knives, late hours, odd ingredients, and demanding bosses, co-workers, and customers, in a small space with lots of noisy activity, can be very stressful and hard on the system. I’ve noticed many professional foodies turn to food, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, gambling, etc., for relief because they are having trouble coping in their high stress environments.
5. Also, I’m an emotional eater and have been struggling with my weight most of my life.
6. Also, I know that many foodies have dreams of writing their own cookbooks, and/or winning competitions, and/or opening their own restaurants some day.
7. And as a foodie myself, I can relate.
I hope this ebook, “Creating Wellness: 3 Massive Mistakes Foodies Make that Keep Them Unhealthy, Overweight, And Uncreative,” will give you some insight and will help you climb the ladder of success to new heights!
By the end of this ebook, you’ll know the three best ways to relax, feel better, and heal your life so you can ultimately live the life of your dreams.
- You’ll learn the “S-Word” that is killing your health and how to remedy this immediately;
- You’ll learn the secret yet powerful habit that all successful foodies practice; and
- You’ll learn the most advantageous investment you can ever make that will pay off big time for the rest of your life.

I’d like to leave you with one quote by Anne Lamott – maybe it resonates with you, too.
“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen. Repent just means to change direction — and NOT to be said by someone who is waggling their forefinger at you. Repentance is a blessing. Pick a new direction, one you wouldn’t mind ending up at, and aim for that. Shoot the moon.” ~ Anne Lamott
