Hey there! Thanks for checking out my blog!
My name is Katie and I moved to Chicago in 2010 for law school and graduated in May 2013. I’m originally from Kansas City, MO and I did my undergrad at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. I started this blog in August of 2011 because 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 alone in many aspects of their lives.
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 afterwards 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.
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.
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 form Beautiful You Coaching Academy to further my coaching services, so check back soon for more on those offerings.
I hope you enjoy and feel free to e-mail me with any questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org!
