About Me

My name is Mallory and I’m a 21-year-old recent college graduate. I went to Trinity College which is a small, liberal arts school in Hartford, CT, only about an hour away from my hometown of Wilton, CT. I decided to start blogging after becoming addicted to following so many other healthy living bloggers with whom I can relate.

I haven’t always been a fitness lover, but after living an incredibly unhealthy lifestyle my freshman year of college (I gained 15 pounds exactly…can you say prototypical Freshman 15?) I turned to running to lose the weight and become more active. Little did I know I’d fall in love with the sport I once so strongly hated!

I’ve always been a foodie, and I love taking recipes and transforming them into healthier, more nutritious ones. I have developed a strong passion for health and nutrition after realizing how much better healthy living makes me feel, both physically and mentally.

About the Blog

This blog is intended to be a “healthy living” blog, documenting all aspects of my life, including food and workouts (but certainly not limited to these topics!). I DO NOT post everything I eat, and this definitely isn’t solely a “food blog.” I love posting recipes and creating healthier versions of normally artery-clogging food we all hate to love.

  1. I feel like you were in my mind when you wrote your “about me.” I liked high school more than I did college, and I’ve always felt like no one can understand that! I also love love love The Bachelor/Bachelorette (just watched tonight’s episode, actually :)). I can relate to the sipping shots thing (I’m a lightweight), and I’m quiet and prefer to express myself through my writing. Long story short, we have a lot in common :). Oh, and, the first thing I thought of when you mentioned Hartford, CT was “Gilmore Girls.” I LOVE that show (and it sometimes takes place there)!

  2. Oh my gosh. I LOVE YOU! Your Blog is AWESOME!! I love how you are striving for that balance with yourself. 🙂 You are an inspiration.

    CATS are AMAZING! 🙂

  3. Kat, you are too kind! Thanks so much! (And yes, cats are crazy and amazing)

  4. Just found your blog and I feel like I can somewhat relate! I am going to be a freshman in college and I hope to live a healthy lifestyle while I am there. I also love that you went to school in Hartford, CT. I have a slight obsession with Gilmore Girls (if you’ve ever watched it before?) and they live around the Hartford area and I just found that exciting:)

    • Hi there! Thanks for commenting 🙂 I actually haven’t watched Gilmore Girls (I am not a huge TV person) but I feel that I would like it if I got into it! I might do a post on how to stay healthy in college, and what I wished I knew before I went, since some of my readers are a couple years younger than I am, so stay tuned!

  5. Just came across your blog and wanted to say hi!! I’m a fellow 21 year old recent graduate blogger and I love meeting others in the place as me. 🙂 I definitely agree that after college is the best time to start a blog..lots of free time!

  7. I also starting blogging after i was “inspired” by some that i began to follow at the beginning of the summer … I’ve only had mine for a few days now but I’m already hooked. I love finding others who in the “same” place as me, i’m 21, but still have two more years of college to go, getting my masters. as much as I’m thankful to have another two years, I cannot wait to graduate & move on with my life as well … Good luck with your move & the start of your new job, can’t wait to read more about it!

  8. I went to Wesleyan, right around the corner (-: Thanks for sharing–I’m looking forward to reading more! AND, congrats on the post-college job! That’s always a huge weight off the shoulders.

  9. Cool! I grew up in Weston, CT!

  10. great blog! looking forward to reading/learning more about you!

  11. I swear running gets in people’s blood! 🙂 I love your story and can’t wait to read more!

  12. Hi Mallory! Isn’t it funny how once we get over that fear of actually putting our bodies to work, it just becomes so fun and enjoyable? I can relate to that as well! I think that adrenaline rush does become somewhat physically addicting. 🙂

    • Hey Ellie! Thanks for commenting! I know- I remember in high school I dreaded gym class so much. It really is an addiction; last week I had to forgo going to the gym, and it was the SLOWEST week ever. I can’t imagine having to recover from a more serious injury and holding off even longer.
