About the Diva

Hello! My name is Katie and I am 32 years young! I started this blog to share my passion for a healthy and happy lifestyle. Positivity, happiness, and self love are keys to a beautiful life.

Each day is a day we are given, a new day, and a day to live to the fullest. I believe that always seeing the positive, is really the best way to live. Life has its ups and downs, and all we can do as individuals, is embrace each day with a positive mindset.

If you ever need inspiration, search #syws anytime to get some good vibes.

Anthony – My 14 year old son who sometimes thinks he is beyond his years  icon wink About the Diva

Anthony is the best kid a mom could ask for, I was a teen mom and had him at 17, best thing that ever happened. I never regret the hard times I went through being such a young mom, I grew up fast and always put him first, still do! I am blessed that I was able to be such a strong, stable, and mature mom at that age.  He is a blessing and a clown at the same time!  I have to admit it was hard being a single mom, working lots, and living on our own but I did the best I could. I am always the best mom I can be to Anthony, all you can do is be the best parent and hope your child always follows the right paths in life.

 Michael- My  smart, amazing, and loving husband that I am so grateful to have. Everything happens for a reason, I seriously gave up on love and thought I would just be single forever and I was ok with that. I would of rather been alone than to be hurt again, but god sent Mike to me and now I know what love really is.

Love has its ups,downs,good times,bad times, and more, but it is real love when you grow stronger through it all and love each other more and more each day.

Mike is the best step-dad to Anthony, I never dreamed I would meet a man who loved my son more than he loved me. I have to say I really lucked out, Anthony deserves a good father and I am so grateful <3

My Mother- My mom is my best friend and although we have had our tough times together, I am glad to say those are long gone. My mom is pretty much a saint to animals, she has her own animal control business and has saved tons of animals over the years and still does to this day. I am so proud of my mom for what she does, her job is 24/7 and she is the hardest worker I know.  She has a huge heart and she always made sure we were taken care of growing up, even when we had struggles with money.

 My Dad- I call him my dad even though he is technically my step-dad. He is my only dad to me, you can read more about the reason why here. My dad pretty much rocks, he has the BIGGEST heart, is funny, and always is there to listen. I would always run to my dad first when I had a problem growing up, because I knew he would be calm and my mom on the other hand would freak out!  He is a good man and I am grateful he stepped into my life and took the place of my biological dad.

Sister Jennifer- Jennifer is the oldest and I suppose that means the wisest? Haha! Jennifer has 2 sons, Ellis and Donato. I love my nephews to death and it’s funny how her and I had boys when my mom had all girls!

My sister Melissa – We also call her “Mindy” as well, she is the second oldest and she is pretty amazing! Mindy has a boyfriend Adam who is in a band Scattered Hamlet, he goes on tour a lot and his band rocks! Mindy is known as the “wise” sister!

IMG 7869 1024x682 About the Diva

My sister Angela – Angela is one of my younger sisters, my mom got re-married and had her and my other younger sister with my step-dad. Angela is the sweetest, most kind, and most hilarious girl ever! She never fails to make me laugh and she never fails to have the most bling in the world! She seriously has so many bling rings that she collects, I should take a pic one time. Angela is married to an awesome man named Marko, love them both so much!

My sister Gina –  Gina is the baby of the family ( I am technically the baby too from the first marriage) and she is my sidekick! Gina and I were so far apart in age growing up that we were not that close as in playing dolls together and such, but as we got older we have been closer! Gina and I both love to shop at target, she loves to workout, and she loves to be a girly girl like I am! I love her and I call her “Beanie” the nickname I have always had for her.

My Healthy Lifestyle Philosophy….

SDC143361 768x1024 About the Diva

I started this blog because I love living a healthy lifestyle, love people, and love spreading happiness!

My healthy journey….

I didn’t always eat so healthy, growing in an italian family there was lots of pasta, bread, and more! My parents never had healthy things around, always had liters of coke ( I used to drink SO much ) little debbie snack cakes, ramen noodles, and all that junk that is not good for you on a daily basis. I just realized when I was about 21 that I wanted to try to live a healthier lifestyle by eating things that were better for me and to start exercising too.

I really started eating better and exercising when I started modeling when I was 21, it really put me into that lifestyle and I never had a eating disorder but I can say that I was not eating enough daily to meet my needs. Modeling was a very hard time when it came to my body and me loving my body, I was always comparing and judging my body daily.

The modeling world is very scary when it comes to girls and their weight, I saw some scary skinny girls, heard lots of girls hating on their bodies , and saw girls eating nothing practically.  I am happy I am now at a place where I love my body and embrace it every single day, Love, honor, and respect your body ladies! I accept my flaws and I love them, my body is the only one I will ever have and I love it!

I eat really healthy, lots of fruits, veggies, organic, and whole grains! Foods that make my body happy  icon mrgreen About the Diva

I really just eat what I want, if I want ice cream for lunch, I have it, its all about balance to me and not depriving yourself!

Listen to YOUR  body, it will tell you what it needs!

It might say veggies for lunch and ice cream for dinner!

Ummmm yeah I am also known as the ice cream monster, because when I treat myself to it, I really do it big!!!!

Hey Katie! I’ve “known” Anthony for awhile now but never did the math…I didn’t know you had him when you were just 17. It seems like he turned out to be the sweetest kid in the whole world! The end of high school may have been tough, but now you can enjoy life with him for many more years. You’ll be in your 30s when he goes to college!

You have killer biceps! Do you follow a specific diet or food plan, or try to eat a lot of protein?
Keep up the great work and good luck on the fitness instructor certificate. I did mine last year… knowing that you are a zuma instructor it will be EASY for you! :)

Hey Jessica! U are so sweet! Thanks for the comment and for stopping by my blog! I actually dont follow a set plan, but I make sure to get protein at every meal! I do use protein powder in my oats every day and have protein smoothies after weights! I try to weight train 3 or 4 days a week and do cardio 3 days a week, but no longer that 35 minutes!

Thank you so much for the good luck on my fitness certificate! Means so much!!!!

Hello!
Love your blog. Being a bit of a health nut who also loves to eat I want to share with you a great health food that I’ve been intrigued with as of late. My research is showing that pure cacao beans, (the real chocolate in chocolate) are one of nature’s most complete superfoods. I love them mixed into some ice cream make my own bakers chocolate, eat them as mid day snak etc. For a quick summary on some of the health benefits check out http://www.bocasbean.com.
Keep up the good work and I’ll be looking forward to The Divas’ great postings yet to come.

Dear Katie – Today we’re launching an angel funded non-profit nutrition educational organization called Slim is Simple. SIS will provide compelling multimedia resources—free of charge—that the educational and health communities can leverage to share the simple, fun, and proven nutrition and exercise science necessary to stem the obesity, diabetes, and heart disease epidemics. We’re working to get this “curriculum” into schools, churches, and etc.

Wanted to give you a first look at our first full-length animated educational piece at http://youtu.be/U36XJaETbh8 with the hopes that we can collaborate on giving this non-profit educational effort the legs it needs to make a difference in the mainstream.

Thanks again for all that you already do to help so many to live so much better.

Gratefully,

Hey Katie,

Just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your blog!
You’re such a positive, inspiring and strong woman, and it’s definitely contagious when I read your posts!
…and so is the cravings for ice-cream. Definitely a big fan of the good stuff ;)

I adore your philosophy about loving your body, being content with it and giving it exactly what it wants and needs; I agree that life is all about balance and moderation, and never depriving yourself!
That’s the key to happiness and feeling confident in yourself :)

Congrats on embarking on your healthy living lifestyle, and I’m glad you love it.

Keep blogging,

Kloe x

I can’t believe I just met you now…! You’re amazing!! I loved reading about you, and your blog, and I hope someday I can be where you are and in peace with myself and my body, with a lovely family (as I didn’t have the best around me growing up…if you ask me, there was love lacking)

Love, Ana

I already thought I loved you…I love you that much more now! One day, I will share more of my story. I really do look forward to your positive words. I have worked really hard the past few years to not let my past define me. Negativity does me no good. It makes it hard to be a good friend, a good wife and a good mother. I really do love your passion for living a healthy positive life! xoxox

88 Healthy Diva May 10, 2013 at 7:19 pm

Awww you are the best! I read this comment while I am sitting here feeling like poo, back aches and leg cramps kind of night, this made it all better!!! Negativity does NO good to anyone, the ones that embrace it and spread it, I stay away from, it is much easier that way. YOU are a good mother, wife, and friend, never forget that and never forget your worth! Love you friend!! <3

Hi Katie! I wanna let you know that you have been such an inspiration to me. I’m 16, and I just recovered from an eating disorder earlier this year. And I’m still trying to learn the meaning of “self-love”, but I’ve been following you for a while and seeing that you can still live a healthy lifestyle, while also being able to eat things like ice cream or sweets, has been leading me down the right road. I really hope you know that I consider you a role model, and I thank you for being such a lovely person. Sorry for how long this was, have a great day. :) x
