Welcome to Healthy Tidbits! It’s where I blog about kitchen adventures, traveling, fun workouts, and my life as a newlywed & a new Mom-to-Be.
I got started with running in high school because I was trying to lose weight and stay in shape. Since then, my love of running has grown. I have run a handful of 5k’s, 10k’s, and have 3 1/2 marathons under my belt. My ultimate goal is to run the Chicago Marathon before I turn 30. That leaves me with 2.5 years.
Besides working out, I enjoy cooking..and eating Last Fall, a doctor told me that I don’t have IBS, but instead had a sensitivity to gluten and dairy…two of my favorite things. After that news, I adjusted my eating habits and have ventured outside of my cooking comfort zone. I now follow a gluten-free diet and mostly dairy free diet. My stomach’s feeling a lot better these days and I can rarely taste a difference in gluten-free foods.
*I‘d just like to state that I’m not a personal trainer or nutritionist and any workouts/recipes that I post are just things that I’ve personally done and enjoy.
Last summer, I married this guy.
We met in the Air Force a few years ago. He’s from Chicago. We lived there for a few years, before recently relocating back to Wisconsin, my home state. He makes for a great running buddy and enjoys participating in Tough Mudder races.
Meet Oliver. He’s our first born. Oliver is a yorkiepoo we bought in Chicago about two years ago. He keeps me company while LC is deployed or away. Oliver likes to whine for our undivided attention, so we’re hoping that he makes a good brother to Baby C. He also loves to cuddle and his favorite spot to sit is on your feet. He’s funny like that.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog! If you have any questions, comments, concerns or just want to say hello, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
