Why I blog:
Growing up a scrawny little girl I was used to eating whatever I wanted and however much I wanted. My grandma swore it would catch up to me someday but I never believed her. That day finally came after my first year of college when I realized I had gained about 20 pounds. From then on I have struggled to maintain my weight and now understand the importance of healthy living. Many girls have gone (and will go) through this so I decided to start this blog to document my trials and tribulations of staying fit and healthy from college and beyond in hopes that I can give someone some good advice along the way.
A little background:
I was born and raised in Minnesota, the land of pond hockey. I played hockey for many years and still strap on the skates every once in a while….that’s me in the left corner 🙂
I am very close with my family, my parents are my best friends.
I have one sibling, my sister Erica. She was born blind and autistic and I owe so much of who I am today because I had the privilege of growing up with her.
After I graduated from Indiana University I decided to move to Chicago to begin my career in PR. I live right downtown (just outside of the loop) with my two dogs and my boyfriend, Corey.
