We're happy you're here! Basement 249 is all about feeling at home - both in Boone and in your own body. As a certified Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle coach, I love helping women create a healthy relationship with food while not missing out on carbs, fats, or protein. I'm here to help you create a plan that will work for your specific needs - no work out or diet required!

I want to walk with you on your health journey, as you find your way through menopause, stubborn pounds and food obsessions.  Some of the options I can offer you are; creating meal plans, grocery shopping tips, food preparation ideas, exercise options, goal planning, daily healthy habits and encouragement.  I want to come alongside you as you learn the plan and help you work through any struggles and ultimately celebrate the victories. 

I have also been practicing yoga since 1998.  I completed my 200 hour training through Triad Yoga Institute in Greensboro, NC.  

Hi, my name is Karen.  I am a wife and a mom to 5 children and 2 daughters-in-law.  I am a follower of Jesus who enjoys yoga, tea, coffee, music, reading, making cards, crocheting, biking, walking and hiking.  

In 2012, after losing 30 pounds and then proceeding to start to gain it back, I went on a search for recipes that separated carbs and fats.  Quite by accident I stumbled upon Trim Healthy Mama!  My THM journey has had many ups and downs (including weight).  However, no matter what, I’ve always ended back with the food freedom I find through THM.
