Behind the Blogger

Hello Reader!

My name is Ashley.  I am 27 living in Denver with my little family, Zach (my fiance husband) and our two furbabies (August and Gusman).

We moved here from Chicago in August 2012 and have been on an adventure since.


Our old neighborhood in Chicago….we love you Chicago!

Some favorites from our first year in Denver

For me:  healthy living is all about balance


I try and find that balance by eating healthy, whole foods for the bulk of my daily intake, with healthy fats, carbs and proteins most important….behind my favorite:


You will never find a day without chocolate or sweets in my diet.  It’s all about balance, and my fresh fruits and veggies are a balance for the large amount of chocolate I take in on any given day….fruits and veggies, and


Being active.

I have always been active, but within the last year or two I have become extremely passionate about running.


I may never be the fastest runner, but it really has changed my life.  Running has been one of the most amazing and challenging  things I have introduced into my life, and I am so thankful for it everyday.

I started my blog in hopes to reach out to people in the way that healthy living blogs have done for me for the past couple of years.  To know that there are people out there who share my love for fitness, my passion for healthy food and chocolate, sweating and in general healthy living has literally made me feel normal in a way that I haven’t in a long time.  Let me tell ya…when you are a weirdo like me, it’s kind of nice to feel normal sometimes :).

I hope you stick around and follow the journey — and please reach out!  The community is honestly the most amazing part of this whole blogging journey, and what keeps me motivated every single day.
