My name is Julia.  I originally developed this blog as a means to share my journey of living in Japan.  After moving back to the U.S. in December of 2018, I decided to begin a new path dedicated to fitness and wellness. I earned my certification as a Personal Trainer in June of 2019. In September of 2019, I completed my coursework to become a nutrition specialist. My next goal is to complete my training to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (200-hour level).
