Hey out there!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m Kristen – fitness & nutrition fanatic and mommy of 1 on a mission to find easy but creative ways to stay in shape and continue a healthy lifestyle with a cup of coffee in one hand and a toddler in the other.
My fitness journey started at 12 years old with none other than a Cindy Crawford DVD! Since then I’ve absorbed all I can about nutrition and exercise, quit smoking (2001), completed 4 marathons (Twin Cities, Dublin, Barcelona, Crazy Horse), spent a couple of years personal training and made endless mistakes when it comes these topics (after being dumped at 19, I lived on diet pop for a week)!
I’ve created this blog because I simply want to show you that you can have your bread, enjoy your chocolate, drink your wine, skip a couple of workouts and still have a healthy, fit body.
What I hope to prove is that you don’t need a gym membership to be fit. You don’t need a 90 minute sweat session to prove that you’ve worked out for the day. I am a true believer that something is better than nothing when it comes to fitness!
About my past: I grew up on a farm in South Dakota, lived in southern Spain for 4 years where I met and married my hubby in 2009 and we had our daughter “little bug,” in June 2010. July 2011 we packed our life into 10 boxes and moved to the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Thanks again for coming to my blog! Enjoy and leave lots of comments!!
