Welcome to French Inspiration !
A 40 something American from Maine, I have lived in France for almost 25 years. I came to Europe because I wanted to work internationally and ended up marrying a Frenchman. Living in France has taught me the importance of enjoying life, not sweating the small stuff, moderation, family time, great food, wine, the value of vacation and that life is not black or white.
Fitness and healthy living became more important to me as I got older. Once I hit 35 I had a wake up call about my health and the importance of taking care of body and mind.
I am currently training for my first marathon, the Paris Marathon on April 3, 2016, and am loving the experience of the journey.
Besides running, I do yoga, lift weights and occasionally swim. I follow the 80/20 rule when it comes to eating clean. The 20% is mostly chocolate or wine!
I wanted to start a blog to keep myself accountable for my (generally) healthy lifestyle, and possibly inspire others with ideas, tips and tricks I have learned over the years of living in France.
Thanks for your visit !
Let me know what you think.
