Here is a little bit about me ~

My name is Kirsten.  You can read here for why I started this blog.

Relationship:  I met my LEO(husband Mike) on September 11, 2004 and we were married on September 18, 2009.

Kids:  I have three kids of the four-legged variety.  A Yellow Lab named Boulevard, a Shih Tzu named Stuart, & a German Shepherd named Ranger(who is my LEO’s police dog)

Home State:  I was born and grew up on a farm in rural Nebraska.  I moved from Nebraska in 2008.  Go Huskers!

Work:  I am a home-based full-time employee for an insurance company.

Loves(aside from my LEO & pups):  Travelling, hiking, running, snow skiing, snowshoeing, reality TV shows(I think it illustrates how normal and amazing my life is ), reading, crocheting(just recently picked this hobby back up).

Biggest Vices: sugar & too much TV watching

Favorite Cocktail:  I enjoy almost all of the SkinnyGirl products.  If that’s not available, a vodka & soda water usually does the trick.

Notable(well, at least what I find notable) Fitness Accomplishments:

Played Volleyball in Cornhusker State Games ~ 2006, 2007, 2008 (I pulled out my medals and I have a 1st place for 2006 and a 2nd place for 2008 – I think both were in sand 4’s)

Las Vegas, NV Red Rock Canyon Half Marathon ~ March 2011

Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder Half Marathon ~ September 2011

2012 ~ educating myself ~ understanding & incorporating clean eating, more consistently strength training, & engaging myself in the “fitness online community”

2013 ~ we shall see what it brings!!

Biggest Pet Peeve:  People who do not put their shopping carts in the cart returns in store parking lots.

Biggest Fitness Related Pet Peeve:  People who bring you down or ridicule your “diet” or workout plan.  Layoff people, it’s not a fad, it’s a lifestyle change.  Everyone makes a choice.

Blog Experience: I’ve been a blogger since I left Nebraska in 2008.  I started my personal blog as a way to share my life with my family/friends.
