YoungFabLife is all about sharing my (work in progress) healthy living lifestyle, recipes, reviews, and day to day happenings. I’m really excited you visited my blog! So here’s a bit more about me:
I’m Megan, a 20 something penny pinching shop-a-holic (do those two things really ever go well together?). After a chilly two and a half years in Idaho, I moved back East and somehow ended up in the suburbs of Washington DC. Jump ahead three years and here I am living everyday with my best (boyfriend) friend, and maneuvering my way through this thing called adulthood.
I started working in the corporate world when I moved back to the East Coast, but have never really figured out what my “true calling” is. I just don’t think i’m my true calling and desire is to sit behind a desk my whole life. I grew up always wanting to be an actress, or do something in the TV world. But by not taking the risk to go after the dream and having a bit of a shy personality, I think it will forever be a pipe dream. I’m still working on figuring out what my true calling is, and I know someday I will figure it out and work towards doing it. In the mean time, trying to stay on a healthy track has become a priority that had slipped to the bottom of my priority list for a while.
About a year and a half ago, after moving further away from the city, my diet and exercise habits consisted of junk food and minimal walking. Before the move, I was very active and in decent shape. Suddenly, I wasn’t making the time to workout anymore because I was too tired after getting home. I was feeling sluggish and noticed I outgrew my favorite jeans. I also realized I had developed an addiction to chocolate bars and sugary snacks. It wasn’t uncommon for me to eat a leftover chocolate bar on my way to work in lieu of a real breakfast. It was time for an overhaul. I realized I was tired and sluggish because I was so out of shape, and I needed to make time to be active.
Eating clean is really important to me, but at times can be a huge challenge, especially on the weekends and when eating out. I love cooking, especially baking. Working a full time job, which has nearly a two hour commute each way, and going to school part time takes up a lot of my time, so a home cooked meal isn’t always possible. I try to find other simple ways to stick to a nutritious diet, and I hope to share all about it. Getting fit is definitely an adventure and it is still a “work in progress”.
Life can get pretty hectic, so i’m really excited to have a place to document it all.
Thanks so much for visiting:)
