Miss Ellie sat still long enough for a selfie 🙂

I promise to put a better picture here SOON, but for now you can at least see who’s behind the words.  Thanks for joining me on this journey!  I live in Charlotte, NC and am proud to be a native of North Carolina.  I was born and raised in the mountains, so the mountains will forever be in my soul.  As my mom says, Fall is my favorite season because it’s in my DNA.

Graduate of Western Carolina University, and Pfeiffer University (MBA).  My day I work in financial services but my passion is here, with words.

I am here to share me with whomever wants to read.  I will share my transformation that is FINALLY happening – 72 pounds lost in one year and I am still working on my fitness goals.  This change has been SUCH a ridiculously long time in coming, and I had to hit rock bottom first, but if I can inspire even one person to just keep trying, and never give up, then it’s worth sharing all the ugly parts.

This is just “me being me.”  You will read about dogs (rescue dogs are everything to me), books, sports, music, wine, fitness and nutrition (my struggles as a work in progress), and anything else that pops into my head.  This is something I have wanted to do for ages, so here I am.

I will share some of my favorite things that I use in in the gym, as well as other things I just really can’t live without. :). Maybe some wish list things, you just never know.  Please leave comments to let me know what you think we should discuss.
