Hi there. Thanks for visiting! I’m so glad you are here. Let me share a little about myself!
I started this blog back in 2013, with the name of Fit ‘n’ Cookies. It was a few months before I married Aaron, who is my best friend and love of my life. We’ve been together since 2004, but only married in July, 2013.
A few months later we adopted Benson who is our favorite fur baby.
He was definitely the spoiled one up until this past October, when we welcomed our little girl, Annabelle.
I am an AFAA certified group fitness instructor, and you will see numerous of the workouts I teach on the blog. I share workouts frequently, as I enjoy writing them, and doing them.
Fitness was never a thing in my life until college, when I felt out of place and needed a way to escape. I found the gym and then my mom and I decided to sign up for a 5k, and began running together. I have run 3 half marathons (one while pregnant!), a marathon relay, 2 10 mile races, and countless 5ks. Running is my “me time” and I really enjoy it.
Family is near and dear to my heart. I grew up with one brother, Matt, and my two parents. My mom and I are very close, talk numerous times the day, and is always there when I need her. I’ve always been a daddy’s girl, as well. I married Aaron, and with him came two fantastic parents, and 5 more brothers and sister.
Health and fitness is a huge priority in my life. I make the time to fit it in. We eat a lot of home cooked, healthy meals, but I’m not one to shy away from the cookies or appetizers 😉 I definitely believe you can enjoy your life and still be healthy.
