Hey there, welcome to Life Outside The Box. I’m so glad you’ve found your way over to my little corner of the world wide web!
I’m a South Florida born and bred native and a former collegiate athlete at The University of South Carolina, GO GAMECOCKS! I currently have a career in digital marketing sales but my real passion lies somewhere on a plate between a fork and knife. I have a deep love for cooking but an even greater love for eating! I just love how food can bring friends and families together, how some food springs old memories and also builds new memories. Ahhh, food….I just love ya!
Through out high school and some of my college years I struggled with my weight constantly yo-yo-ing up and down. I couldn’t quite figure out my healthy happy medium. After years of experimenting with diets combined with different forms of exercise, I can finally say that I’ve found that balance. It’s still a challenge every day to maintain it and keep things fun and interesting, but I can confidently say I feel healthier, happier and proud that I’ve achieved it!
About The Blog
Life Outside The Box was created as a place for me to share my recipes, my love for fitness and all things related to living a healthy balanced life. CrossFit in particular has changed my life in so many positive ways as it has with tons of other people involved in the community. I’m so grateful for my local box CrossFit Ripped, a place that has introduced me to some of my closest friends and my husband! It’s an outlet for my competitive drive, and simply a place I call my second home.
So all in all, stick around…..you’ll most likely come across some healthy recipes you can add to your ‘go-to’ list, as well as some of my not-so-healthy indulgences (I’m only human and Oreo’s are my weakness!!!). If cooking isn’t your thing then I hope LOTB can help inspire you to sweat or kill your workout for the day! If all else fails I can promise that pictures of my ridiculously cute, highly energetic pup Jersey will make you smile!
