Hi! I’m Kelly. Nice to meet you. I love books, Harry Potter, hiking, animals (especially my dog), and I love being active – I’ve done Crossfit, am currently kicking it at Orange Theory Fitness, and I like to dabble in yoga, barre, and just getting outside. And obviously, I also love clean eating. I’m a fan of Whole30 (completed two full rounds in March 2016 and January 2017) and have gotten really into learning about nutrition and wellness these past couple years (it’s become a bit of a hobby).
I’m not a registered nutritionist or dietician or personal trainer. Nothing on my blog is ever meant to be medical advice, or anything like that. This isn’t a primarily weight loss blog or a recipe blog, because I’m just not qualified to do those things.
What this is, is me sharing my ongoing journey to wellness. I have no particular destination in mind that I hope to document – this is about my path and all the things I find along the way. Found an amazing new product at Whole Foods? Posting it. Reading a new book to help educate myself? Sharing it. Tried a new recipe that I’m loving? Boom. A new move I learned at the gym made me feel like a superhero? Going up. Pictures of the scale or scientific/medical advice? Negative. I just want to share neat stuff I find with you guys and tell my story!
One thing I will share is this: I suffer from Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Although my bi-yearly blood tests come back within normal ranges and my medication is regulated, I still suffer from symptoms (exhaustion, chronic injuries/inflammation, etc). Confused and frustrated, I did research and found out this was a common problem. I’ve been slowly educating myself and finding things that work for me, and that’s part of why I wanted to begin sharing these things. If I can post something that someone else will find and love, I’m all about that.
Goal: feel a little bit better every day. And that’s basically what you’ll find here.
Also, all of this repeats on my About page. Because a HEY WORLD post and an About page seem to me the same thing.
Please be patient, I’m new at this 🙂
