Hi, I’m Terri Snider, the creator of The Struggle Is Beautiful. I am also a wife, mother, middle school teacher, and writer living in a cozy farmhouse in the Pineywoods of Texas.
Like most working moms, I struggle with balancing parenting, marriage, health, and work. I find the answer in prioritizing my responsibilities and slowing life down.
I created this site as a resource to help working moms do all the things. When I started my health and wellness journey in 2018, I shared everything I was learning into this site.
I’ve poured all of my research, successes, and failures into this site, hoping I can help you thrive on your wellness journey. Maybe you can avoid some of the setbacks and pitfalls that I encountered.
When I finally decided to lose the weight, I didn’t realize that the journey would be about so much more. I learned to be content with myself and my flaws.
I learned that eating well and working out to feel good, is much more important than doing it to look good.
I learned that my mental health is more important than anything, so I needed to develop strategies for simplifying my diet and workout routine.
That’s what I want to help you with at The Struggle Is Beautiful. To help you simplify your health and wellness routines so that you have more time to do the things you love.
