About Me

Hey there! Thanks for checking out my blog!

About Me: Katie Wheeler

My name is Katie and recently moved from Chicago to Denver, CO but I’m originally from Kansas City, MO (GO CHIEFS!). I started this blog in August of 2011because I needed a creative outlet and I wanted to write about my life in a way that other women could relate to and realize that they aren’t aloneΒ in their struggles.

On Letting Go // www.peaceloveandoats.com

I took up running and racing when I moved to Chicago and after completing several small races I finished the Chicago Marathon in 2012! I absolutely loved the experience, although I dealt with a serious IT band injury afterward, which eventually helped me to back away from spending hours on a cardio machine to focusing on strength workouts, including my absolute favorite program, Hammer & Chisel.Β

Along with the many fun aspects of my life, I also blog about many of my struggles, including body image, self-esteem, and confidence, overcoming an eating disorder and many other topics that affect many women. You can read my most recent “story” update on my some of the eating disorder and exercise problems that I have experienced over the years.Β 

In December 2014 I took a leap of faith and started as a Beachbody Coach. I’ve always known that I love helping people, and this has presented itself as an amazing opportunity to do just that, and potential have it become a full-time career.

I’m currently taking a 6-month long intensive Life Coaching Course from Beautiful You Coaching Academy to further my coaching services, and I’m currently taking on pro bono clients to get some coaching time under my belt.

    I am so impressed that you are reading, prepping meals and making time for law school! The last book I read was on my post-Bar Exam trip, and now I just read magazines as a First-year Associate. But, my favorite magazine is The Week, which is a great summary of US news, world news, arts, entertainment, and more!

      I usually don’t have time for reading but this semester my school reading is considerably lighter than normal, I have 3 classes out of 5 that have no reading at all! Congrats on finishing the Bar!!!!

    Hi Katie…I just found your blog and love to read about other people’s love for oatmeal! I have a similar obsession. I am new to the blogging community and have a vegan food blog. My oatmeal post was my favorite to write and photo. I look forward to reading more of your posts!

    This is a great blog! I’m so glad I stumbled across it. I think we’re similar in some ways; at least I know the pain of being a law student in a new city! Best of luck – I look forward to following from now on.
