Parade of Homes 2014

Hello there! My name is Reneé Benda I am an Upstate New Yorker interested in all things healthy-living related!  I started this blog to document my life and pursuit of healthy living.

Weight Loss

You can read all about my weight loss as it was featured on PopSugarFitness.

This journey has been a big change for me. I’ve shed close to 60 70 pounds and am on a mission to make it stick. Most of this blog will be about fitness,  healthy-living, parenting, awesome apps and random thoughts that pass through my head. By day I work in digital media and advertising which trust me is NOT as glamorous as it is portrayed in the movies. By night I’m a first-rate wife and mom of two crazy little boys!  I’m addicted to my iphone/ipad and am always on the hunt for the latest tools and gadgets.

Fitness over time

Who is Who: 

Meet Troy my better half. We’ve been together for just shy of 11 years. We met shooting a TV commercial together, I promise you can’t make this up!


Family Pictures

There are also my two leading little men who make appearances on the blog. Reece and Broc keep me on my toes. They enjoy hockey, spending time outdoors and avoiding bedtimes.

Recently we added miss Bella to the bunch! She’s the only other girl in this family, our goofy 2-year-old white yellow Labrador. She enjoys long walks, belly rubs, and drinking water straight from the toilet.


I’m a firm believer if you’re bored then you’re boring. There is too much to see and do in this world  and life is too short to have a moment of it wasted. Imagination will take you far in life if you follow it for a bit.

Thanks for stopping in! Read early, read often!

Nice good for you! 2013 was a change for me as well. I went on a 60-day detox and started eating clean, and then of course that’s how I started my blog, excited to do more in 2014.

P.S. I see you’re from New York, me too! Sort of-ish, moved a couple years ago, but I still consider it home.

Rakhi that’s WONDERFUL! I’m always excited when people make the change to see results. Change is hard. Keep up the great work!!
