Hey everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend. So last night, as I was checking my notifications before bed, I saw that I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Paige @ Fit Not Fad! Thanks Paige, I really appreciate the nomination!


Wondering what a Liebster Award is? I was, too. The Liebster Award highlights blogs that have less than 200 followers as a way to recognize new and upcoming blogs. I am so honored to be apart of this group of nominees. Thanks again Paige!

  7. What is your greatest accomplishment to date? Answer: Starting this blog! It’s been a little over year, so far. Although I lost some followers because I had to make a new blog when I changed the name 😦 
  8. What made you want to start a blog? Answer: I love to read and write, in addition to living a healthy and active lifestyle. So, I decided to merge the two and came up with the idea of starting a blog!

  11. How did you become interested in aspects of healthy living (fitness, healthy foods, running, etc)? Answer: I was always somewhat interested because I was an athlete my whole life, but when I was 19 I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and that sparked a fire within me that led me to where I am today.
