Being Me



Welcome to my page!  Thanks for stopping by.  I am a 31 year old living in suburbia struggling to balance a full-time job in health care, healthy eating, and exercise along with all the other fun things I enjoy.  I love to run and practice yoga, and I am always setting new exercise goals.  In 2011, I ran my first marathon.  I spend quite a bit of time in the kitchen cooking and baking.  I have a lot to learn in terms of technique and the best way to learn is to practice.  I also love to travel, and photography has always been a hobby of mine.  Join me, a new-ish blogger, as I share my travels, recipes, exercise struggles and successes, and photos along with all the other excitement that comes my way.

“Do what you love.  Love what you Do.”

  1. I love your blog name. Something I am striving for in life and my work…seeing as I hate my job and would love to pursue a real passion. Which I ‘think’ is writing, but honestly have no idea 😉

    Great to find another 30 year old as well!

    • Thank you!
      It has been my signature on my email for awhile…”Do what you love. Love what you do!” and I think it is so positive and inspiring. Thrilled to find another 30 yo in this world. I feel like a grannie out here : )

      Best of luck to you as you explore your passion. It will be a challenging journey and provide you with even more fun stories/posts to write about!

  2. Love the title of your blog! I read your post from today and can totally relate to the “old” body feeling a bit slow sometimes…28 doesn’t sound that old, but sometimes it sure does feel that way:)

    • Thank you for your comment! I’m glad that I am not the only one who sometimes feels slightly older than her years : ) The title quote is one of my all time favorites. I recently found it on a key chain at a little boutique store and bought it for a friend starting her career. I think it is such a positive way to approach life and always makes me smile!

  3. Hi, I really enjoy reading your blog and have nominated you for the “Inspiring Blog Award” There are a few rules to this nomination (these aren’t my rules, so do what you want…no pressure) you need to give a shout out to me, of course, tell us 7 things about yourself and then nominate 15 bloggers, that’s the tricky part, if you don’t have 15, don’t worry, just pass it on to someone….share the joy by following this link,

    • You are so funny. The BOY and I get that a lot where people think we are in college. It probably doesn’t help that I rarely wear makeup and work with kids/adolescents so I talk (write) like one too : ) Thanks for the comment. I’m sure you will find some more ways to spoil your coworkers on the site!

  4. So glad I stopped by – I just found a new blog to follow!! YAY!! After reading your bio, I gotta tell you … we’ve got a lot in common and I’m so excited to spend some time reading your site!! I love to run (but I’m no marathoner! I’m more of a short distance kind of girl!) and I just started yoga. I’m hoping that gets easier … 🙂
    Anyhow – reading your bio (baking, photography, etc!) just reminded me of, well … me! So I’m already sure I’m going to love this!

    • So fun! Thank you for stopping by! I love that about blogging where you think you have a set of people you like to follow and then all of a sudden to ‘meet’ someone new with similar interests. It’s great to hear about yoga and it definitely gets easier! I look forward to keeping in touch!

    • ha ha! That is so fun that you have a blogging buddy! I can’t wait to check out more of your recipes and photos. I know I saw a beautiful looking corn dish on there that I have been drooling over : )

    • Just read through your bio and we do have tons in common! My boyfriend keeps asking me when I’m going back to school to get an RD or nutrition degree because I went the health science route the first time around (I’m a PT!)
